It had to happen eventually. I was hoping that it would be a few years down the road, but it happened yesterday. My official induction into the “Out of Touch” club.
I’ve been struggling with the speed (or lack thereof) of my laptop lately and finally sent an email to my son (the techno wizard) asking what I could do to kick her up a notch. Well, he responded with a link to a product advising me to print the page and take it into any techie store and they would be able to give me what I needed.
Yesterday after church, my husband and I dutifully took the piece of paper into Best Buy. After wandering around in a daze in the computer department, hubby finally asked for help, and we were directed to the Geek Squad at the front of the store. (honest, that’s what they’re called!)
I handed the young fellow my piece of paper saying “I need one of those” not having the faintest idea what one of those really was. I was doing fine until he asked me a question! A question?! Please!
I responded in the way I’ve heard old ladies respond in the past. “I don’t know, my son just told me to get it.”.
Welcome to the club, Linda.
