Re: Volunteering

Old folks try to one up each other just as much as youth do.

My MIL bought an iPad because she had gone on a weekend writing retreat with some friends and they all had iPads while she only had a new MacBook Pro.

After buying the iPad on her return to civilization, she left it in its box for 6 months. When she finally took it out she realized typing on a screen sucks so she went out and bought a keyboard and mouse.

We all warned her before she bought it. Arg!
