I laughed my head off!
« on: September 22, 2005, 08:06:23 PM »
Oh you guys are gonna love this!!!

One of my computer basic students, the older lady who I have been teaching said something today that just blew my mind!

She had not gotten a mouse pad with her computer.  So she was using her mouse on the hard desk surface.

So last night I picked one up for her when I was at the store.  She wasn't home so I left it in her doorway.

Today I went by to see if she got it and if she liked it.  And she said, come in come in....I can't figure out how to use it....I need you to teach me how to use it.

My thoughts were HUH?  what's there to teach?

So she proceeded to tell me and show me.

She had the mouse pad upside down AND she was trying to move the MOUSEPAD around to navigate her mouse on the computer screen!  ROFL  She was moving the pad instead of the mouse!

Of course I was laughing my fool head off INSIDE, since I didn't want her to see me laughing at her.

But it was totally hilarious!!!

I am wondering....I bet she was a blonde before she turned grey!  LOL  no offense to blondes...I am a blonde myself.  lol  well I used to be

That's funny. 

I've had to actually answer some similar questions in the past.  Especially when I was working in the computer lab at school.  Some people are really clueless when it comes to computers.

Are you trying to offer GR@PH;<'S ideas when he is at his most "tottied"  :o
I don't think Netty would let that happen, you see, she could always put a lock on
GR@PH;<'S chair or at worse, hide the Brandy. :mrgreen:

skittlespc,
Sorry if you think that i missed the BOAT but if you read it again you will note that it said you may just find that it is easyier to move the mat over the mouse as the artheritas will not let you hold the mouse.
I know it was your elderly lady but i meant that you may find it better to do it that way once you get to her age
