It is no secret that elders often have trouble coping with technology. The world is changing at a rapid pace and in a matter of two decades technology completely changed the way we live. While it is true that it improved our lives in many ways, some people actually struggled with it. It is harder to learn something new when you were used to the good old ways for decades. Kids nowadays are born and raised with technology everywhere around them and they accept it as something normal, but senior citizens often struggle with seemingly simple things and this leads to hilarious situations!
