Now this is totally hilarious! LOL!

Please, everyone, read the OP's post again. The granddaughter didn't say it with a wink and a smile. The OP says she did it with a serious look, etc. Let's not try to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear here. Apparently the girl was intentionally rude. Seems a common problem these days, and it seems everyone wants to make light of it. Not me!

I tend to agree it doesn't sound like it was all in fun.

Look at what the original post says:

"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?"

If this is a true representation of the events, it would seem like a good chance to talk about stereotypes and also about courtesy, patience and empathy.

By the way, people can have a sense of humor and disagree about what strikes them as funny... and what doesn't. It's subjective.Smile

Jubilant, I don't know for sure. We only have one accounting of what Happened. Based on that, that's my opinion.

I don't think anyone needs to "lighten up" or have "Humor Repair Therapy" when a teenager is this rude to her grandmother. This child needs a lesson in respect.

Your "laugh for the day"? You ought to be ashamed of yourself. That's the kind of reaction that enables this kind of disgusting behavior. Many children have never learned boundaries to behavior, values and a strong moral foundation. I guess this one is one of them. {#emotions_dlg.mad}

If the o/p found the comment funny, and was able to laugh at it, who am I to judge? After all, she knows her granddaughter better than any of us here do.

I think it's a valid question.

Me too. I'm not saying older people can't learn new devices, they can. But what I find is, many blame their age for not trying.

Or they blame the machine.
