In the first hour of teaching from the ground up all about iPhones, I got the following funny quotes/scenarios from my mom:
- "What is this watery stuff? Why is it there?" (Referring to the generic background)
- "Why are these buttons jiggling?"
- Me: "Mom, they're asking for your security code."
Mom: "Why?!?! That is my personal information! It's ****."
Me: "OMG Mom! Not your Pin Number!!"
- "Does IMDB have to be capitalized?"
- "It says I have six 'inboxes'."
- "What is that sound?"
- Then she focused for a really long time on her new alarm sound.
Me: "Mom, can we move on?"
(She picks the alarm that sounds like a nuclear bomb is headed our way. That'll sound nice in the mornings.)
- I told Mom to search for the BB&T app.
[5 minutes later...] Mom: "Dream car??"
Mom: "It's asking me what my dream car is."
Me: "I don't know what your dream car is, Mom!!"
It's so funny and a little frustrating to teach "the older generation" current technology but I admire her for trying! She'll get the hang of it soon, hopefully. I just warned her that she can not text and drive using her iPhone. ;)
I'm sure I'll be updating this in the future. :) Until then....
