Don’t Let It Slip Through Your Fingers

| Related | January 18, 2016

(I am showing my mom, who is very technologically challenged, how to copy and paste things on her iPhone.)

Me: “You just hold your finger down until the boxes show up. Choose select and then copy.”

(Mom tries it.)

Me: “Now go to where you want to paste it. Hold your finger down again and choose paste.”

(Again, mom follows directions and proceeds to look at me puzzled.)

Mom: “Where did it go?”

Me: “What do you mean?”

Mom: “Where did it go? How does it know what I wanted to paste?”

(She pauses and looks intently at her hand, holding her index finger up.)

Mom: “Did it go into my finger?”

Me: “…What?”

Mom: “Did it go into my finger? Like, did it travel into my finger and get placed back into the phone?”

(I had to walk away so she couldn’t see me laughing.)
