Today, I returned home for the first time in a year, and found my entire computer missing. I asked my grandma about this, and she told me that she threw "the TV" away because it "no longer responded to the remote control." FML

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.

Omg that sucks but it's really funny at the same time!

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

If she thought it was a TV, then she would have left the CPU, right?

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

if it was one of those Macs or an HP all in one, it wouldn't have been separate.

It does say "Entire computer missing" So I assume that includes the tower

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.

Omg that sucks but it's really funny at the same time!

Wow...I live near this thing called a'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.

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?

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