Phone Call This Morning

This morning I get a random email from my mom.

“How do I log into my Upromise account?”  The email seemed ominous since she set up her username and password, I felt I needed to call and clarify.

Her: I keep getting these emails from them to shop through them. What does it ALL mean?

ME: Well, if you do online shopping through their account a percentage goes to O’s college fund.

Her: Ah.  What’s my username and password?

ME: (Shockingly, I know this information). Try these. If you download the toolbar, you get the savings automatically.

Her: How do I do that?

ME: MOM, I’m at work!

Her: I have another question. But don’t yell.

ME: Okaaaaay…. (slightly skeptical. Every time she says don’t yell, it turns out that they are buying a sailboat they don’t sail, unnecessarily reinforcing foundations around houses that will not budge for at least another hundred years, they are taking O on some other crazy vacation, they are moving back to the motherland, they are buying a brand new car after they just bought a brand new car…. I can go on and on about this).

HER: What is the difference between Facebook and Twitter? Which one do I want to do?  And what does this you tuby thing do?

ME: (In my head: OH LORD!! I will put you on a very restricted profile!!!) Ok. I’ll show you when I see you.

Lord help the internet and Facebook. It will NEVER ever be the same.  Good luck to you both!
