My future mother-in-law is generally compassionate, intelligent, articulate and generous, but for some reason when it comes to technology her brain malfunctions.
My future husband actually received the following phone call:
Mom: "Dom? Are you there? I'm in the parking lot at work. I need you to help me." Dom: "What's wrong?" Mom: "I left my automatic door unlocker in the office. I'm locked in the car." Dom: "What do you mean, you're locked IN the car?" Mom: "I already locked the doors, and I left the automatic door unlocker in the office. I can't get out of the car. I didn't want to have to call AAA. Can you come let me out?" Dom: "Um. There's a... I mean is something wrong with the unlocking mechanism on the drivers' side door?" Mom: "The unlocking mechanism..." Dom: "On the drivers' side door." Mom: "But I can't find my keys to start the car." Dom: "You don't have to..." Mom. "Oh." (Pause) "Never mind."
