ed True story: After Dad, who was a Baptist Minister, passed away in 1997, Mom moved to a small apartment by herself. She was about 80 and most of her adult life had been spent at church or church activities. My brother in Colorado, also a Baptist Minister, decided Mom NEEDED a computer just so everybody could email her. Around that time, Best Buy had a promo where they would give you a PC if you signed up for 3 years of internet service for $30 a month, if I remember correctly. So, I got the PC and my nephew, who was the family internet/computer whiz, set it up for her and was going to teach her how to use it. I was there when he began the lesson telling her to click here and double-click there and this was an icon, etc., etc., etc. She didn't understand anything he was saying. When he began to get frustrated, I pointed out to him that she doesn't speak the language and the only icon she's ever known was Jesus Christ her Lord and Savior. Finally, an email address was set up, a word processor program was loaded (Mom was a prolific writer), along with some solitaire games. About a week later, she called me and said I needed to stop by, something was terribly wrong with her computer. So, I get there and she directs me to her email program. The inbox was chock full of hard core porn! I never figured out what she must've done to achieve that, and Lord knows she didn't know how it happened, but I deleted the emails and the email program and payed $30 a month for the next 3 years so Mom could play solitaire on the infernal machine! She lived to age 95 and never had another of those horrible computers! 😂
