Email Fail

| Related | December 11, 2015

(I track down my very elderly father’s long-lost brother living in South Africa.)

Me: “Dad! I found him!

Dad: “How?”

Me: “I found him online. I’ve been emailing him about a possible visit to come and see us!”

(Instead of being delighted, Dad is annoyed.)

Dad: “You’ve been disturbing him at night, given the time difference!”

Me: “What do you mean?”

Dad: “Well this Internet thing goes through the phone line doesn’t it? I don’t want him being woken up every time he gets one of those email things!”

(He thought the phone rang every time an email arrived.)
