So it would appear that your elderly parents have heard about this new craze us kids call “The Facebook” – and they want in on the action.
Sure, they might not have the technological skills or knowledge to to use it, but HEY if they can master an ATM machine, how hard can The Facebook be right? Errrmm, let us count the ways…
When an elderly parent attempts to use Facebook, it can go in three possible directions:
a) They’ll fall down a rabbit hole of cat videos and you’ll never hear from them again. Except for when they CONTINUOUSLY post cat videos on your wall.
b) They’ll discover the photos of you doing shots off a male stripper’s stomach after your divorce and never speak to you again; or
c) They’ll comment on everything you’ve ever done or will do. Forevermore.
If any of these things happen, never fear. To be honest? It could never quite be as bad as these 20 adorable (failed) examples to connect:
