It’s no secret that our parents have a hard time with technology, to put it nicely. They aren’t used to the smartphones that have been a part of our lives ever since we can remember, but rather their childhoods were a lot more simple, phone-less and text-less. That’s why they sometimes struggle with this new technology, and other times they don’t fully understand what’s it good for. These hilarious texts from parents show they’re trying their best to fit in with the younger generation, mostly without much success.
56. Am I getting through?
Some parents were able to adjust to the new era of technology surprisingly fast, while others, like this mother, are more technologically challenged. Eventually they all get the hang of it, though, some just take more time to adjust to the new technology. After all, texting can be hard when you’re not accustomed to it.
On the other hand, maybe we’re being too hard on this mother, and she played her son a trick? Perhaps she sent this message since her son wasn’t answering any of her previous ones, and so this was her way of testing him – sending him something he’d be compelled to respond to? I’m not sure parents figured out technology to this level yet, or otherwise we’re not giving them enough credit.
