Unfriendly Face Book

| Related | July 23, 2012

(I am at my grandmother’s house visiting for a few days. I bring my laptop with me, but the battery dies. I leave my computer to charge, and I use my grandma’s computer to check Facebook. About three hours after I was done, this ensues.)

Grandmother: “What’s this screen on my Facebook?”

(I walk over to look at what’s going on.)

Me: “That’s the login screen, Grammy.”

Grandmother: “It doesn’t usually show me this. Why’s it doing that?”

Me: “Because I got on Facebook earlier on this computer.”

Grandmother: *exasperated sigh* “Well, how do I get back on my page?”

Me: “You have to log in with your email and password. Do you know your password?”

(She doesn’t answer, so I walk away. A few minutes pass.)

Grandmother: “Ugh… why is it making me put in my name and all my info?”

Me: “That’s the signup screen. To log in you just go to the top right corner right here.”

Grandmother: “Okay. Well, in the future, when you log me out, log me back in when you’re done.”

Me: “I can’t do that.”

Grandmother: “Why not?”

Me: “Because, I don’t know your password.”

Grandmother: “Well, then don’t log me out if you can’t log me back in!”
