“Ting,” went my phone in the middle of a birthday dinner for a close friend.
“Why is my dad calling me?” I ask, as always, while hitting the green button.
“Hello, father…” I say sarcastically.
Come to find out he’s searching for help on how to attach a pdf to an email for insurance purposes. Oh, boy…
“That’s a little hard to do over the phone, dad,” I tell him. Knowing there’s no way he’s going to understand me without some type of visual.
And then the idea hits me… as he asks, “And what the heck is a pdf? How am I supposed to know what that is?!”
I respond mid-chuckle, “Just give me a second and I’ll send you a video.”
I haven’t hear an update yet, but so far he’s just sounded grateful to get any assistance in this confusing new technology-drive world. Boy, have the times changed.
Me helping him instead of him helping me… boy, how time has sure changed.
