Sometimes though they fail at technology so hilariously that you just can't resist sharing their mistakes with the "tech wise kids". Bored Panda collected such examples to remind that while our parents and grandparents may know much more than we, the younger generation do, when it comes to technology it's us that come to the rescue.


If you've captured someone older failing at technology be sure to add it to this list. And don't forget to upvote and comment your favorite fails as well!
