Shit My Mom Says: About the Internet

If you don't know me personally you probably missed the part where I graduated college and moved back home. No big deal, I didn't even post on Instagram about it. Moving home has been....interesting. After being away for so long and only visiting occasionally, it's surreal to see my old bedroom fill up with all my belongings again.

Two weeks into post grad life I was sitting at the kitchen table trying to figure something out for my mom. Apparently her tablet had been notifying her she was low on memory which led her to run to Staples to buy an overpriced SD card. I've told this woman a million times about the wonder that is Amazon, yet she keeps shopping at useless stores like Staples. I swear, that company must make it's money off people who have kids that don't love them enough to teach them how to shop online.

Anyways, as I'm transferring my mom's photos from her tablet to a removable SD card she decides to give me a lesson about 8 years too late. She begins lecturing me about Google and how I can literally search any question on this website and it will come up with a list of answers. Apparently I can look up things on my phone, computer and tablet, basically anything with an internet connection. As I'm sitting there trying really hard to not laugh  my mom is going on and on about all the questions she's searched.

Right as I'm about to walk away because I've finished with her tablet and it seems like the educational lesson is over she makes her final remark which was, "Oh, and term for looking up a question is 'Google it." Thanks mom, you're always teaching me something new.

And that everyone, is the type of shit my mom says...in 2014.

    1. When I was in Europe I use to TRY to Skype with my mom, she was never able to angle the removable camera right. She gave up and bought a tablet with a built in camera instead!
