eek technology

So one of our dogs looks out our front window and always knocks down a candle that my wife has there.

I cleaned up the glass from the broken bulb and we decided to just not leave a candle there any longer.

My wife says, " We can just put it in the bathroom as a nightlight "

I say "Ok, I'll get a bulb"

She says " the inside of this one still looks good"

"What?!?"

Her " We can still use this "

Me " did you ever learn how a light bulb works "??

still trying to teach her what a power on/off button looks like on our remotes.

and this is a woman who was a math major and teacher for many years.

what is it, she can track 1000 things in her head without writing down notes, but simple technology is a stumbling block, nay a REFUSAL to learn?

I feel your pain. I'm still trying to teach the wife how to use the input button.

I've found that most people with a high degree of book smarts have very little common sense.

*raises hand*

it's funny, when I was growing up, compared to my cousins, I had "no mechanical ability"... you know, if you look at something and think 'how does this come apart' or 'what size wrench do I need' whatever, I was last in terms of guessing right, knowing how things worked whatever.

so, over the years I learned by trial and error error broken-something error etc.

still, I won't touch some things, but compared to the next generation (that I've met, anyways) geesh, I'm like a mechanical genius.

my wife has more "common sense" than I do in almost every area.

except computers and technology.

she has learned how to "bing, ebay, ebates, paypal, zulilly, and qvc" but somehow hasn't figured out how to work the credit card bill
