Not About You … Entirely

Posted on | November 28, 2014 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
Don’t you think it’s important that older people learn how to use the Internet?  My parents refuse to text or email and they still have an old-fashioned answering machine which they often forget to check.  When I need to find them, I have to keep calling until they pick up the phone.  I bought then a computer but they refuse to use it.  How do I get them to enter the 21st century?

Dear Son:
They are probably unwilling — perhaps unable to change. The old-fashioned ways of communicating — calling and calling and then calling a neighbor — might not be so bad after all. Haven’t you ever wished to be less acessible?
