My Long Suffering Son.

Mom:  "Jay," I said sweetly, "Are you in a good mood?" 

Jay, looking at me warily, "About as usual.  Why do you want to know?"

Mom:  "Well, I can't tell you how badly I have screwed up my Twitter and Tweet Deck."

Jay, rolling his eyes and putting his head in his hands,: "What do you THINK you did?  What's wrong with it?"

Mom, lower lip quivering:  " I seem to have lost some of the folks I've been following."

Jay, long sigh:  "How many have you lost?" 

Mom:  "Maybe you'd better look at it."

Jay, another long sigh, as he comes back into the room after looking at both web sites:  "You've lost about half of them.  How in hell did you manage that?"

Mom:  "I was trying to add people, and I wanted to delete one of the categories on Tweet Deck, but I guess I hit the wrong button." 

Jay:  " Well, I've restored your list, but, you'll have to re-follow everyone who is missing."

Mom, looking pitiful:   "OK. If I can remember how."

He went back in the other room and I think I heard him mumble, "And, people think I don't have any children." 

I don't think that was necessary, do you?  Comparing me to a child? Anyway, he got me back on line with Twitter and Tweet Deck.

Wait until I tell him what I've done to Facebook. Hehe.

Stay tuned.

This is AWESOME! If it wasn't for us our kids,nieces and nephews wouldn't feel useful at all. Way go...giving your son purpose. I am sure he is sleeping better tonight just knowing there is reason....
BTW - thanks for the huge smile.

What happened to those "Are you sure you want to..." messages? I am sure they were most annoyed to some, but for those of us who have fingers that click before they think. Somebody should offer a subscription service. Maybe your son?

If he were ever interested in a customer support job, he could list you as a long=term, very needy customer whom he has been assisting with every tech problem out there. He'd get the job. It is a parent's job to make their children feel useful in the world. You're doing great at that....me, too!

And some folks wonder why we had children! And grandchildren are even greater as they can fix things with their eyes closed!
