My mom-in-law, love her but let's just say she's not the most electronic savvy person. Here's a few:
Her: My cell phone says 100% fully charged, but when I unplug it, doesn't respond, screen is blank.
Me: Did you press the Power button?
Her: It's turning on, I forgot I turned it off, thank you.
Her: The laptop is low battery. Do we buy a new battery?
Me: No need, just plug it in to charge.
Her: The adapter is plugged in the wall outlet, but it's not charging.
Me: Is it connected to back of the laptop?
Her: It wasn't, but is now. Thank you.
Issue: Cable box remote was out of sync with TV (after she pressed several wrong buttons).
Her: I turn on TV and cable box turns off. I press Power again on remote and now cable box is on, but TV turns off.
Me: Okay, put remote control down, walk over to the TV, and manually turn it on.
Her: Where is the Power button?
Me: Right side of TV, towards the bottom corner.
Her: Okay it's on.
Me: Now, try Power button on remote control, should turn both off same time.
Her: They both work now, thank you.
There's other instances like right-click instead of left-click on the mouse and wonders why "a little window box" keeps showing up. Or somehow gets lost using Facebook on the laptop (instead of on her phone), opens up a new tab by mistake and wonders why Google search page appears, doesn't know how to get back to FB page. Calls me up and I explain that Facebook isn't deleted or broken, just click upper left corner tab with blue FB icon.
Haha...we're definitely lucky that we know what we're doing when it comes to A/V equipment and computers.
