You know how they make all of these bumper stickers about your kids turning sixteen and how you need to stay off the road? Sometimes I feel that they need to make similar ones for when your parents are trying to jump on to the "new technology" bandwagon. For example;
My father has recently got his first phone with a texting plan. He has probably sent half a dozen messages and seems to be handling it okay. The other day I even showed him how T9 works. The thing I maybe didn't explain quite so well is that proof reading is very helpful when using this option. I received this message from him yesterday;
"I need to he there wrencher are yours or tolloans."
I am usually pretty good at deciphering messages, but this one was a little out of my league. After listening to his voicemail I realized it was supposed to read;
"I need to know if these wrenches are yours or Tollmans."
At least he's trying, right? Keep it up dad.
