A friend of mine's mother had come to visit her for a couple of weeks a few years ago at Christmas. While her mother was there, my friend tried to show her how to use the computer (her mom had never used one) to send e-mail, to get information from the internet, etc.
Well, for some reason, her mother could just never get the hang of it...something would always just not work right. Well, after her mother went home, my friend did some maintenance on her computer and discovered that her CPU had a virus that was slowing things down and creating problems.
Anxious to tell her mother that the problem had actually been with the CPU and NOT with her mom's computer skills, my friend called her mom and said "mom, the reason you couldn't get the computer to work quite right when you were here was because the computer had a virus."
Her mom's response?
"Well, I was wondering about that because I'm telling you when I got home I got the worst cold I've ever had in my life. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that I'd gotten pnuemonia from that computer!"
Yep. Her mom was convinced she'd contracted the cold from the computer and refuses to touch one again. LOL
We couldn't help but laugh!
