This is a question Turning into your parents

Unable to hold back the genetic tide, I find myself gardening in my carpet slippers, asking for a knife and fork in McDonalds and agreeing with the Daily Telegraph. I'm beyond help - what about you?

Thanks to b3th for the suggestion

Hasn't happened yet... But im sure it will
I am dreading the day that technology overtakes me...

My dad is a typical technophobe who got suckered into buying a PC by those wonderful people at PCWorld. He also came away with a printer/ photocopier/ fax machine (never used) and a digital cam-corder (never seen him use it... and really dont want to know if he has).

Many an hour has been spent on the phone to my dear old dad instructing him on how to send an email, how to close a window, reasuring him that he hasn't lost whatever it is he just closed etc etc. All has to be step by step, then the next day he calls again and it starts all over again ad infinitum!

The worst was trying to explain to him why 'just typing in free sex videos' into google was a pretty good way to fuck up your computer and that he should stick to the 'reputable' sites...

I hope it never comes to that when I have kids... *shudder*

...dads are great aren't they. I always know when my dad wants computer help when he shouts 'Flim-Flam, you got a sec'?... sadly it never takes a sec! :(

If only!
At least you don't have to bleach the keyboard when he's done!
