TBD on Ning

I might've posted this here on TBD before, if so apologies. Anyway this really happened to me:

About 5 years ago, I was waiting at the end of a long line at the pharmacy for my prescription. Didn't feel like playing games or whatever on my phone, so I was just standing there bored. Another 60ish woman comes in and gets in line behind me. Few min. later, another 60ish woman and a little girl get in line behind her. The woman right behind me--let's call her Woman1--says to the woman w/the little girl--W2--"Do you know much about cell phones?" W2 says, "Wellll, a little bit." W1 says "Well this odd message has popped up on my phone's screen & I don't have a clue what it means. Do you happen to?" W2 looks at it & says, "Oh, dear, no I don't; I'm sorry." About then, the little girl with W2 who had wandered a few feet away to look at a shelf, comes back to W2's side. W1 says to W2, "Is that your grand-daughter? She's adorable." W2 smiles & says, "Why yes she is." W1 says to little girl "Hi, there sweetie. I have a granddaughter who's probably about your age; she's 7. Is that your age?" Little girl smiles & says, "Yeah! I am 7!" W1 says, "Good! Then you'll know what this is on my phone." and shows it to her. Little girls looks at it & says "Oh, yeah; that's not a big deal, it just means [I forget what she said]. Want me to clear it off for you?" And W1 took her up on it. So always ask the youngest person in the vicinity for help with this stuff.

They are amazingly smart with electronics.

My granddaughter had to show me some things on my phone and remote.

I have a picture of one of our granddaughters putting contact names and numbers on my husband's phone for him. She was a little older than 7, but she certainly was good help.

My grandson...now 28,is making a very good living as a computer whiz. Started still in diapers, sitting on his mom's lap clicking the mouse on Mickey's image on the old computer. Never know where it will lead.
