In recent memory, I can recall an instance where my mom had a recipe open in Chrome, and I wanted to show her a YouTube video. I opened another tab in the browser and she got mad at me because she thought I “deleted the recipe”.
I used to work in IT at a high school around 2011, and got a few amazing ones.
One teacher called me in for an (unrelated) issue, the setup was a really crappy one where the tower was right next to the mousepad. I asked her to click something for me…
She moved the mouse to the right until it touched the tower, and then instead of re-adjusting her position, she went up the side of the tower with the mouse, clicked, then held it there.
An older woman in my office was unaware of google or the existence of any search engines. She spends all of her workday on a computer. This was in 2015. After showing her how search engines can be used to search for any information, she took out a sticky note and slowly copied down “http://google.com/search” and stuck it to her keyboard. She types out that address fully whenever she goes to search things.
