My Grandma vs. Technology (Description)

Grandma: Brandon...?
Me: Yea?
***2 minute pause***
Grandma: Brandon...?
Me: What do you need help with?
***3 minute pause***
Grandma: Brandon...?
Me: Do you want me to come over there?
***2 minute pause***
Grandma: (Impatiently says) Are you coming to help me with my computer or not?
Me: Okay, I'm coming, I just didn't know what you wanted.

***Walk to her study where she is on her piece of **** Dell with Vista***
(I just updated her from Internet Explorer 8 to Internet Explorer 9 yesterday)
Grandma: Why can't I get to google?
Me: What?
Grandma: I can't see my favorites.
Me: Type in google.com
Grandma: Where?
Me: ***sigh*** Click the star up there. ***points to star***
Grandma: What star?
Me: The one i'm pointing to.
Grandma: ***clicks home***
Me: No grandma, the star, not the home.
Grandma: ***clicks star*** Why is it on the right side? (Referring to favorites list)
Me: Because this is the new version of Internet Explorer.
Grandma: Well, I want the old one back.
Me: You can't, because you won't be able to use your email. (Optimum Online no longer supports IE8)
Grandma: Okay, now why can't I see all of my icons?
Me: What icons?
Grandma: The ones for Microsoft Office.
Me: You mean your desktop?
Grandma: No, my desktop is here. ***taps computer with finger***
Me: No, Grandma, those icons on the screen are on something called the desktop.
Grandma: I don't care what it's called, I want my Word back, why'd you delete it?
Me: I never deleted it.
Grandma: Yes you did, now I can't see it.
Me: Grandma, Internet Explorer is maximized, that means your icons are behind it.
Grandma: Okay, how do I fix it?
Me: It's not broken, all you have to do is click the little horizontal line at the top. ***points to minimize button***
Grandma: ***minimizes Internet Explorer*** Oh, there they are.

It took me 5 ******* minutes to teach my Grandma how to minimize internet explorer, and that's not even what she originally needed help with.

Why the **** does she own an AS/400? (Picture is just the control module for her AS/400, picture linked below shows what the whole AS/400 system is)

Calling a dell built computer a piece of **** is like calling a Kohler built engine a piece of **** .

Used to be the one of the best, and there was nothing you could do to stop it.
Now there are too many plastic parts, and all they care about making as much of a profit as possible, regardless of the quality.
