My Dad still doesn't understand how a computer works (or why I spend so much time on mine!), has never had an ATM card and hates to leave me voice-mail.

My father is an odd mix of the above. As an executive before he retired, he never touched a typewriter. He's now 67 and has learned how to type, search the net and send e-mail to the grandkids.

He's okay with voice mail, but like many men I know, he treats it like a long distance call--he yells into the phone. On long distance calls I figured he always thought a little extra effort would help the sound travel a long way. No idea why he does the same on voice mail (and, come to think of it, on a cell phone).

ATMs? That's a totally foreign concept to him. Never had one, never will. He and my mom use the drive-up window or actually go in the bank. Gee, and I use the grocery store or 7-11 when I need to do banking. ;)
