Get With the Program

This morning, when the Pres came out into the great room, I handed him one of three remotes.  Holding the other two, and rifling through the drawer on "his" end table, I finally came across all the paperwork on the TV and our cable provider buried under hunting magazines, expired coupons and other paraphernalia.

"Here, you work that remote when I tell you to hit a certain command while I read the instructions," I said.

"What instructions?" he replied, sipping his orange juice and sitting in his chair.

"How to connect the TV to the internet.  I want to try Netflix," I said walking over to the laptop and powering it up.  It is here that I need to explain how the Pres is.  
  • He does not use a computer. 
  • He does not know how. 
  • He has no desire to learn how.
  • Good gravy, he doesn't even do online banking. 
  • He still mails bills with envelopes and stamps for heavens sake.  
Knowing that I was taking my life in my hands, I instructed him which arrow to push when it was time and when to press [Select].  Believe me, it was a painstakingly slow process, but when I saw the word SUCCESS, I knew the rainbow was close!  

And we have lift-off!

Shortly thereafter, he selected three movies for us to watch and he seemed to enjoy them!

Hallelujah!  Another small step for mankind...:)

So who is the real whiz in your hubby?...your kids????
Does your hubby use a computer as much as you?

I've been wanting to try Netflix too. My husband and I both use computers but he's the one I go to if I have a problem. Don't ask him to figure out his smart phone
