I Love My Mum

My Mum can be one of the funniest people I know, and often comes out with little nuggets that keep me chuckling for days.

Unfortunately, its not intentional!

Unlike others I know of their age, my parents have embraced technology and regularly buy goods and gadgets that make their lives simpler or more exciting. In fact, they are now ahead of me technology-wise, and I work in IT!


The latest gadget to hit the household is a webcam. For the past few years, I have been pushing the idea of them getting a cam so we can still 'see' each other when I can't visit for long periods, but its taken the brothers and sisters having the same tech to motivate them to take this step.

Installing the camera yesterday, we hit the point where the microphone was to be configured, and a window was displayed with a button in the middle stating 'Click to configure mic'. What would you do if presented with this option?

Click the button. Not my Mum. In that strange older-person's logic she seems to be developing, she started clicking her fingers in front of the microphone!

I nearly wet myself, I was laughing so much!

I love my Mum, she's great :-D
