Sometimes your parents are just going to burn you. Remember, though they are older and slower, they are usually wiser. Sure, it stings when a friend busts on you, landing a joke at your expense when you least expect it. It is a thousand times worse when you get mocked by one of the people who conceived you. Just when you thought your parents were hopelessly out of touch and overwhelmed by the times, they show they've still got some savvy the way know best: making fun of their child.

Now, can you get over there and help them figure out how to turn on the Internet?

Oh, sorry, the router wasn't plugged in.
