My Dad is so cute when he’s not trying to marry me off

Posted on: June 19, 2012

Today’s conversation started while I was in the car – Dad called and said he couldn’t get to his email on his computer (his other one died about a month ago, and he’s been world wide web-less since then). Anyway, of course my dad uses Juno… He’s so internet old-school it’s awesome. I told him I’d call back when I got home:

Dad: “I can’t open my email”

Me (after logging into Juno as him to mirror what he sees): “Do you see your inbox?”

Dad: “Yes, but I click on it and nothing happens. I’ve been trying for three hours. I can get on youtube. I can get on cnn. I can do everything but email. SOMETHING is blocking it. I called for help but they put me on hold for 30 minutes so I hung up.”

Me: “Ok… I hit the inbox link and … OOOOOOOOOOH! I GOT IT! YOU HAVE A POP UP BLOCKER IN PLACE!” (because apparently, Juno thought the inbox needed to open in a new window)… “Ok, right click on the inbox.”

Dad: “Right click???” (a few seconds go by…then a few more… then a few more…) “Ok, I did – now what do I do?”

Me: “Where it says ‘open new tab’, click on that”

Dad: “Right click? Or left click?”

I got him through the rest of how to open his email and he was SOOOOOOOO excited, I even got a “Thank  you!” which made me giggle.

In the past 30 minutes, I’ve got american express spam from him and emails relating to my brother’s wedding. He’s baaaaaaaaaaack … and will soon be emailing parents all over the world to try and get me married  😉

My mother told me the OTHER DAY, “Did you know that you can play music on the internet?”

hahaha. That is SO cute! A year ago, when my dad ‘found’ youtube, he told everyone to go look at it. They’re adorable 🙂

Omg, Juno is still around? Wow. I love when parents are inadvertently hilarious.

Yes!! Juno still exists!!! I think that’s the take-away from this story, actually, in case you’re looking for a new email 😉

Amazing. Simply amazing. And too funny as well! 🙂
