Mastering modern technology

When Mom was getting ready for her expedition to Chicago, I fired up my mapping software to print some maps for her. After printing them, I popped out of my office to show them to Mom. After she verified that the maps were suitable for her purposes and I wouldn’t be turned out as useless deadweight, she decided to prep Alice for departure.

Alice, however, had meanwhile disappeared. We started a search and, acting on a hunch, I went to check my office. There was Alice, typing away on my tablet computer, busily printing out multiple copies of the driving instructions from the mapping software. I suppose this is blowback from teaching her to use the mouse.

She didn’t actually write anything, she just printed the route directions I had already set up.

Poly, on the other hand, typed something a couple months ago. I’ll have to see if I can find that again.
