Ok, I love my dad so much. He is everything to me, and normally I would do just about anything for him. But OMGosh the last month or so he is driving me crazy!!!
He and my mom are in their late 40's and never learned ANYTHING about technology. Dad can check his work email (once a day) and that is it. They decided it was time to get a laptop, which is fine and dandy. Well, dad signed up for Facebook. Again, fine and dandy. Then last week at work when his cell phone was run over, they insisted he "catch up with the times" and bought him... an iPhone.
I cannot tell you how many times a day I get a call asking how to do this or how to do that (on the laptop/FB/iPhone). He will show up at my house if I don't answer the phone (they live five minutes away), laptop in hand ready for me to show him how to do something. From a man who refused to get a cell phone to a man sending me texts, "What are you guys doing this weekend?" and "Tell my granddaughter that I love her" (AT 4 am!!!).
I'm seriously about to tell him that the only way he is going to learn is to do it himself and to stop calling me! I don't want to be mean, but I don't know how much longer I can take it!
What would you do??
