    Alright so my grandma has been using MSN for like 8 years and still uses there exploier and everything and i guess she doesent understaind that there are other e mail providers so i just sent her a e-mail for the first time from my new e mail and i got this back from her

    "Hey Chew I just put you on my e-mail list and sent you a message. How did you come up with that e-mail address and what is with the gmail.com ? Guess you beat me to the e-mail If you hear from chrissy let me know or tell her to call me."

    LOL so i guess my family member is the only person in the world who doesn't know what Google is .......LOL i was dieing when i read it hope you guys think it is as funny as i did.:D:D:D:D:D

    My mom is using the exact same thing for the past 6! She thought she had to use MSN explorer just to get on the internet, what a waste of 20mb download speed.

    Most of the older people are scared of computers and internet in general...

    My grand parents never used a personal computer in their live...but they're happy, and that's all that counts.

    Don't want to think about the stuff my kids and their kids will do what I'll be scared about then... :D

    I was tickled silly when I got my first email from my mom back in the late '90s. At first I thought Rose? Who is this chick emailing me? Then I realised ... oh shit. Mom!

    hahaha. I was away at university at the time, and did not even realise she knew my email address, nevermind what email was.

    Unfortunately non of my grandparents have ever joined the digital age.

    one time, my mom asked me where the delete button was on the keyboard.

    i felt like a nerd after showing her where it was.

    Neither side of my grandparents have ever used a computer at all.

    And most of my entire family has trouble telling between the search engine bar and the web address bar...or spending $800 on a laptop but not leaving an internet connection in the budget.
