Yeah, I hear ya. I bought him a fax machine a while ago and put numbered stickers as to what button to press. A few weeks ago I was at the house and I noticed he got a new fax machine:
Me: "What's wrong with the fax machine I bought you?"
Him: "It broke, and won't send out faxes."
Me: "Show me how you send out a fax."
Him: [Turns on speakerphone, dials number, hears receiving fax machine and then hangs up WITHOUT PRESSING SEND.]
I'm at my parent's almost every week, plus the ex's place to pick-up/drop-off kids, and after 4 hours of troubleshooting 3 networks (including my own), fixing various computer issues at my parents' and the kids' place--just the other day I thought about figuring a way to have everyone live together just so it'll be easier to manage one set of network, computer, etc.
Wonder what the fiancée will think about that.
As for my mom, I found a Chinese version of the iPad manual for her, and it's helping ... when she's willing to RTFM. (Her: "It's too many pages! Just show me.")
