Anything that has to do with computers – phones – TV’S –
Do not ask me – I don’t know – I can not figure it out –
AND MOST OF ALL – I DON’T CARE !
I just do not have it –
first of all – I have no patience –
that is why I hate working on cars !
Now – once I am shown and if I write it down and do the task a couple times
I am good to go !
I think the first computer we had was a H.P. – great big thing –
Sherry showed me what to do and I was fine – EXCEPT –
Something ” ALWAYS” happened –
honest to God – it was not me !
Little things – like the other day – I have a automatic sign on for my email’s.
I clicked on it and BINGO – it no longer would come up –
I had to LOG IN again with that dreaded
” PASSWORD ” !
So – I DO NOT REMEMBER such a thing – so I opened my book –
where I keep my pass words that I CAN NOT REMEMBER –
And started the PROCESS –
” BINGO” –
IT WOULDN’T WORK !
So – Sherry – who has her office upstairs –
mine is the kitchen table –
I am very humble !
I yelled upstairs –
“I CANNOT OPEN MY EMAILS ” !!!
” WHAT DID YOU DO NOW ” ? she replied.
Exasperated look comes across my face – I slowly shake my head –
“IT ISN’T ME ” I replied !
” IT IS ALWAYS YOU ” comes the voice
from the commander in chief from above !
Down she comes –
and instructs me to ” LOG IN ”
which by the way I had already done FOUR TIMES !
Now – I try to explain – I try to say –
“IT DID IT ON IT’S OWN ” !
“NO – HON – IT DOES NOT DO IT ON IT’S OWN ” like a mother to her child!
“LOG IN & PUT YOUR PASSWORD IN ” !
( said that a long – long time ago )
” YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO USE A HASH TAG SIGN”? she scolds.
” EXCUSE ME – IT IS NOT A HASH TAG SIGN – IT IS A POUND SIGN” !
Then – she sits down after I tried once again and failed !
Now – you have to know – when we go somewhere –
I DRIVE !
And she uses her phone to give directions –
I am terrible on direction .
She is going to use her phone anyway – so it might as well be for directions
is what I think !
And – we never go the same way twice –
so I have no idea how to get to where we are going !
I told you – I am okay as long as it is consistent –
GO THE SAME WAY !
We – have to EXPLORE as she says -so –
I DRIVE – SHE DIRECTS – ALL IS WELL !
( grand daughters think this is HILARIOUS)
they take my part !
She then proceeds to enter my sign in and password –
” IT DOES NOT WORK” I said !
“WHY DID YOU CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD ” she asks ?
Well – by this time I refrain
and go to my only thought I have had for 37 years –
“IT IS NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY – BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE “
She then goes INTO the computer –
preforms all type of ” THINGS”
And asks me for a password I can remember –
SO I GIVE HER THE EXACT SAME ONE AS BEFORE !
And this time it works !
HONEST TO GOD !
She gets up and says to me
” YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO USE A HASH TAG ” !
UNDER MY BREATH I MUTTER
” IT’S A POUND SIGN ” !
Time for a beer !
Enjoy and have a great day – just another day in Papa’s World
