Not So Techie

Grandpa gets up to change the channels
Grandma has a rotary phone
Microwaves scare them to bits
Garage door openers
ATM machines
Self-checkout lines
Computers
Cell phones
Not!

    I can hardly blame them. I can only half use my cell phone, no, 1/4 use it. I avoid self checkout lines and quit using the ATM machine becuase the one time I tried, I couldn't put in the right amount I wanted out! I DO know how to use microwave and my tv remote, and poetrysoup, however. (necessity is the mother of invention and desire to know it!) good poem!
