A love/hate relationship for me. 
Love them for all that they do
Hate all the hoops I have to jump through
Every time I buy a device, computer or software.
Technology is going faster…
Then what I want to keep up with.
Thank goodness for my 24-year-old nephew
Because when I have an electronic dilemma 
I run to him 
Waaa! Waaa! Waaa! Waaaaaaaaaa!
He’s polite enough not to show it…
But I can feel  his smuggness.
You might be thinking 
Aw, Leigh, that’s not nice to say.”
But you know what I mean, don’t you?
It's that
"I'm younger and smarter electronically than you," syndrome.
My nephew is entering an on-line contest…
Where he has to put together…
A Youtube-looking video
And he asked me for ideas
So I showed him a video
That my 12-year-old granddaughter produced 
Using the Video Star app.
He wasn’t too impressed…
He came back a while later and said…

"Wow, this is good! 
She got the edits down precisely.
Every move is synched with the music.
I downloaded the Video Star app
But can't figure out how she did it.

The gloating was rising in my throat
Faster than a frat house beer belch
And I couldn’t wait to say…
“Why don’t you call and ask her?”

A 24-year-old…
Asking a 12-year-old…
For advice!
Now that's poetic justice, no?
What about you?
Ever need a young person 
To help you with electronics?

I wonder if he'll have the guts to call her?

I do find old people who can't even turn on a computer hilarious. I think a lot of older people think their computer is going to commit suicide if they press a single wrong button.

I don't know what is funnier.... your nephew calling your niece for advice or Adam's idea of people thinking their computer will commit suicide! hahaha.... any which way, please have a pep talk with the puter and tell your nephew it is really okay to take advice from a girl!!

I'm fairly tech savvy, but I'm sure my son will be surpassing me. The question is, when will he surpass my super techie husband? That will be the day. My son does help my mom when she's here. She told me with chagrin that she has had to call him downstairs after bedtime to help with something before. But I think she gets a kick out of it.

I have a degree in IT and am tech savvy with pretty much any gadget. My mistake was telling people about this, so now everyone calls or e-mails me when they have a computer/phone/tablet issue. I wonder at what age I can start feigning ignorance.
