A while back, my Wife would want to print something for our daughter, but sometimes felt perplexed and distraught, she would come to me saying "Hunny, do I need to be on the Internet to use the printer, I can't seem to get on the web".

Another time, similar sort of question "Hey, do we need to be on the Internet to burn a DVD??".

Seems like everything you could do on the computer is relative of whether you're on the internet or not!

And of course, my mother, lifting the mouse up to move the cursor upwards....My 4 yr old daughter has more skills than her


So, do any of you have any stories of computer related discussions with your better half? Or even other 'relatives'?

Thx

Oh yeah a real recent one... Day before yesterday..

My wife was surfing ebay as usual and one of our cats jumped up on the keyboard. This is my wifes computer that I keep maintained for her in a nook in our kitchen beside a TV.. The cats are used to being in her lap there.

Anyway, apparently the kitty hit a combination of keys and the computer suddenly and to my wifes confusion, asks if she wanted to "Restore the PC".

This is a HP PC.... With a restore feature that takes you back to the original windows configuration in case of a major failure.

So what does my wife do?

Wake me up? Nope
Choose No? Nope

She picks .. YES...

Then wakes me up and tells me the PC is doing something funny... It was, it was reverting back to the original configuration and there was nothing I could do about it...

Now she is upset because "I" lost all of her settings, and bookmarks, and documents... Go figure...

Naw, it is my old machine.. Still a good machine... HP, AMD64, 1.5 gigs RAM, but she just uses it for email, ebay and watching old episodes of TV shows...

She knows better than get on mine...

That's grounds for divorce...

And the Forensics machine stays locked up...

This morning my wife said "we get our laptop back tomorrow"... I said "yes we do" (we lent it out to a friend). She then said "Hey, will you be able to get on the wireless network, we did change internet service providers since we lent it out...". Cracked up laughing - she stood red faced. Explained the local network isn't affected by the ISP change. oh my


Thx

I asked my wife to power down the PC the other day...

Guess what she did?

Yep, she reached up and turned off the monitor...


Gotta love these women...

lol very funny stories indeed.

My husband loves to erase all my music, pictures and certain program files (he even removed Firefox) when I am away


I have no idea why he does it and when I ask him he seems to get temporary amnesia. I guess it's his idea of 'cleaning up' the drives lol *sigh*

It's infuriating to no end but I have now enforced a 'no removal unless authorized' rule and assigned laptops and the pc is shared by both of us for general use


lol

i've been with my wife for 6 years now so she's gotten pretty savvy, actually. but when we first met, she wanted me to look up movie times on that "internet thingy". she really had no clue how any aspect of computers or the internet worked. now she has her own machine because she was on it so much that i had to build another one for myself. her mom still calls me for help sometimes and even my wife does face-palms at some of the stuff i have to answer/fix.
