Decoding the Hilarious Helpdesk Requests from Our Parents!

Hey Tech Wizards!

Ever feel like you’ve become the family’s unofficial IT department? We’ve all been there! This week, let’s take a humorous stroll through the Top Amusing Technical Questions Our Non-Techie Parents Ask Us. You might find these eerily familiar!

“Why is my computer so slow?”

Ah, the classic. Have you tried turning it off and on again? Just kidding, but seriously…

“Is ‘The Facebook’ listening to me?”

Well, it’s not The Facebook, and no, it’s probably just eerie coincidences (or is it?).

“How do I use the cloud? Is my data actually in the sky?”

Nope, not floating around with the birds, just safely stored on remote servers. Promise, no rain involved!

“Why do I keep getting pop-up ads for toe socks?”

One mystery of the universe, or maybe just a forgotten online shopping adventure at 2 AM?

“Do I need a new gadget every time Apple says so?”

Only if you’re chasing the ghost of Steve Jobs. Otherwise, if it ain’t broke…

“How does Wi-Fi actually work – is it magic?”

Close! It’s like invisible tech fairies delivering internet goodness.

“What’s a TikTok? Do I need a clock for it?”

Nah, just a sense of rhythm and a tolerance for endless scrolling.

“Can you show me how to Zoom? Is it like Star Trek teleporting?”

Sadly, no beaming involved. Just the magic of seeing your friends as tiny, pixelated faces.

“Why can’t I open this email from a prince offering me money?”

Because the only crown involved is the one you’ll need after banging your head on the keyboard.

“How come you’re always on your phone, but never answer mine?”

The greatest mystery of all. Maybe our phones are just too smart for us?

“How do I stop the internet from running out?”

Don’t worry, Mom, the internet is not like your kitchen tap!

“Why does Google know everything? Did I go to school with it?”

If only, Dad. Google’s just the class valedictorian of the internet.

“Can you delete my browser history? It’s for a friend.”

Sure, “a friend.” We’ve all been there, right?

“What happens if I click ‘Decline’ on terms and conditions?”

The internet police will totally come for you. Just kidding, you’ll probably just be asked to accept them again.

“Why do I need to remember all these passwords? Can’t they just stay the same?”

Because ‘password345’ is not a universal key, unfortunately.

“Is Instagram a telegram that’s instant?”

Sort of, but with more selfies and less Morse code.

“What’s a smart home? Does it do my taxes?”

If only it did, life would be so much easier!

“Can I catch a virus from my computer?”

No need for hand sanitizer here, just good antivirus software!

“Why are you always typing ‘LOL’? What does it mean?”

Lots of Love? Laugh Out Loud? The world may never know…
