Idk whats funnier, the fact she thought your computer was a tv, or that she'd throw the "tv" away just because she'd had to get up to control it.

i'm asian so this is uncommon... i ask my grandma where do you wanna eat in english .. she responds yes and nods......... and i ask her in korean she responds with a list

well she couldve thrown away the monitor and the actual computer. but then again, if I thought a computer monitor was a tv I probably wouldve just thrown that away too

You're referring to the tower... which houses the motherboard containing the CPU. But who knows how old people think?

CPU can also refer to the entire chassis, though it's a bit of an archaic usage.

No, it can't. It's an inaccurate layman's term. CPU is Central Processing Unit, however the computer (or tower, base, case, etc.) contains much more than just a single processor. OP, that really sucks. Hopefully she'll get you a new one.

Well the Grandma would've noticed a cord leading from "the TV" so she probably threw out the hard drive too, under the assumption it no longer works.

Wow...I live near this thing called a library...it's pretty freaky in there. They have books that I can, like, read, and these computers that...*whispers* I CAN USE FOR FREE!! Plus, some people have both desktops and laptops. Or maybe he works with computers and had spares. There's any number of possibilities, so stop whining about things that don't make sense in your brain and spend five minutes trying to puzzle it out before you look like an idiot.

OMG. Then how am I posting this. AN IPHONE. HE COULD BE POSTING OF AN iPhone, iPod, iPad. MAYBE EVEN A 'HTC' ANDROID.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh my gosh... this made me laugh so hard. FYL OP. Not everyone can have a tech-savvy grandma......... or one that can tell the difference between a TV and a computer. But, I wanna know: How are you posting on FML? o_O Are you using a friend's comp?

Reply

Ah, nothing like the magical device known to the common peasant as the smartphone. Although a friend's comp is a reasonable explanation.
