18 People Who Lost Their Struggle With Modern Technology

For as long as I can remember, I've been into technology. It all started with a no-frills game box that my dad got for us when I was a kid. The most exciting game on it was Pong, developed by Atari in 1972, ha, ha!

We have come a long way since then. But I can certainly understand that tech isn't for everybody and some folks really struggle to keep up, like in these funny examples here.

1. This Plea For Help

Oh, no. This is one of the funniest photos. This poor lady needs some major help here, and I can see the desperation in her eyes y'all. Who's going to give her a helping hand, huh?

2. This Shopping On Amazon

Let me ask you: are you also the designated person in your household to do all the shopping on Amazon? This guy is such a great son to help his dad out whenever he needs something. At least he knows how to search, though.

3. This Happy Announcement

I don't think this lady here knows how the FB announcements work, lol. If I were her, I wouldn't be so happy that somebody hacked my account. But perhaps that's just me. I wonder how her contacts reacted.

4. This Autocorrect Confusion

It seems to me that this person is having a little trouble with the autocorrect feature. And the comments on Reddit about it were pretty hilarious. I wish you could read them all because I'm having a great chuckle right about now.

5. The Tablet Confusion

Okay, I have to chime in here. Honestly, if an older person thinks all tablets are iPads, it's not their fault. All these brands can be so confusing, no? I even call my tablet an iPad sometimes, too, ha, ha!

6. This Accidental Search

OMG, I'm laughing so hard I'm about to pass out. This is seriously the funniest thing I've seen in a while, ha, ha! I feel bad for grandma — hopefully she was able to clean her rug.

7. This Hard Work

Oh my! It looks like granny went through a lot of work just to find out whether her grandchild wanted a specific bowl. How did she manage to do all that? I have no idea, ha, ha!

8. This Threatening Message From Grandpa

I guess getting a message like this would make you think twice about missing bingo with grandpa ever again. Clearly, this man takes bingo very seriously.

9. This Classic Excuse

This tech-savvy person thought they had this voice-to-text thing down only to find out they definitely didn't, haha. Oh, but wait — the radio was on. That is the funniest excuse I have seen in a while.

10. The Poop Cupcake

If you mistake the poop emoji for a cupcake, you might need to get your eyes checked. Aww, check out this cute grandma here. The poor thing has to go out and get another card for her grandchild. But it's the thought that counts.

11. This Snapchat Fail

Oh my goodness. The fact that this person's grandma is on Snapchat is pretty impressive, huh? However, she needs a lesson on voice-to-text and Bitmojis, ha, ha! This picture here says it all, and I'm dying now!

12. This Classic Response

Flattery will get you everywhere. The only problem here is the fact that this lady is answering her own comment from four years ago. It shows that she really doesn't know how posting works, and it's funny AF.

13. This Texting Mishap

Buying something online is can be a difficult task. I know that. But it's especially so when you use texting as a means of communication. This guy here mistook his own thumbs up for the sellers, ha, ha!

14. This For Sale Ad

Here's the thing when you post something online for sale, it would be advisable to have a picture of it up. And no, I'm not talking about a picture of your face, lol. Somehow this lady couldn't figure that out.

15. This "Scammy" Ad

Somebody's grandma was really interested in this ad here, but once she realized they asked for a credit card, she thought it looked quite "scammy." Good for her. Don't mess with this tech-savvy grandma. She's on to you, man.

16. This Garage Sale Ad

Okay, somebody has to show this lady how to use her phone's camera to take a selfie. Sadly, this isn't the kind of picture that would compel me to go and check out her garage sale, but I like the font.

17. This Funny Search

These poor grandparents are doing their best to figure out their phones, but even finding the instructions to do that is proving to be a bit of a challenge. I think they need Google, not YouTube.

13. This Screenshot

True story here. I once asked my dad to send me some links to stuff I wanted to buy. He couldn't figure out how to do it, so he sent me a scanned picture of the online page with the link cut off. Yeah, thanks, dad.

If you need a good laugh, I hope these examples above provided that and more for you.

I can't stop laughing at pretty much every one of them here. Has your older relative ever done something funny while trying to use modern technology? I would love to know.
