This was my laugh for the day today

My friend who is a retiree probably late 60's was asking her teenage granddaughter how to do something on her i phone. The granddaughter was not being very patient and my friend wasn't getting it. Finally the child looks totally serious at her and says " Why do you old people buy these devices when you know you'll never figure out how to use them?"

Sorry, I don't find that funny at all. I think that is totally disrespectful out of a granddaughter! {#emotions_dlg.sad}

The grandmother should have reminded her that ""someone helped her learn things when she was young"". Sounds like the granddaughter has a lot to learn.

That was funny.{#emotions_dlg.biggrin} I think Grandsons are a bit more patient. Mine are just about all grown up now and they are little men who think it's pretty important I know these things. You know, kind of a chivalrous thing....and they are actually more patient with me than my own kids are!

Sorry, I don't see the humor in this, either. I think the teenager was extremely disrespectful.

If this had come from a six year old it might have been funny, but from a teenager it is completely unacceptable. It wouldn't fly at my house. 'Nuff said.

Don't find this to be the least bit funny in fact I think it is kind of sad. I don't have these issues with my furry kids. Myself, I wonder why certain people buy these things for these obviously little kids, now do they really need these to function, I don't think so.

I'm on the side of feeling the granddaughter was disrespectful. It's fine that some fine humor in it, I just think it was very rude for a teenager.

I think it's a valid question.
