How Grandma Views the Remote

I found this image on Digg- a great compiler site for internet garbage- the other day. I immediately thought of Grandma being totally baffled by the remote control. This picture has made me laugh uncontrollably.

Last night I was over Jeff's. He was telling me about helping Fleury's mother use a computer. She apparently has never used one. I just got to thinking, what would it be like to not be able to use a computer? Sort of like thinking what it would be like to not be able to read. The mind is a crazy thing, and it seems crazy the older people have such difficulty grasping something as simple as a remote control.
