All I can say is "wow"

OK, the funniest thing ever happened to me before. I recently installed Mozilla Firefox on my father's computer and disguised it as Internet Explorer. I warned my dad and told him about the applications to power browsing (pronounced: porn). I was just tired of running ad-aware and stuff so regularly. Anyways, I get home today and find my stepmother in front of the computer. She says that she was not happy that I did not inform her about having changed the browser. I told her that all the functions she needed were exactly the same. She said it was different, so I asked her to enlighten me. She said she usually goes to pages through her "Favourites", and she didn't know what to do (all the IE bookmarks are already automatically transferred, so I was confused). I repeated my question: "It's the same in mozilla, where's the problem? See, it's right there, where it says 'Bookmarks'" She replies: "I didn't know that's what it's called there. I was looking and I couldn't find 'Favourites'. I had to call your father!" She said "But that's not all. I still don't know. How do I 'search something up'?" (I look confused.) She then proceeds to type in an address in the address bar. She says, "where's the 'Go' button? How do I go to the page?" I am cracking up inside and I respond "You press 'ENTER'........" And she replied that she did not know that. I am just shocked. This woman has worked with a computer at work since the days of punchcards. She is a McGill alumnus. She is one of the more intelligent people I know. But wow... YOU SEE WHAT MICRO$OFT DOES TO PEOPLE??????????????????? FUCK!!!!!!!!!! *End rant here* On another note, I saw "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" today. It was interesting. I shall discuss another time as I must go...
