You "dad clicked"

http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...rm=dad%20click

Verb
1. The art of clumsily finding harm in any otherwise harmless software.
2. To become a magnet for technical glitches.
3. To inadvertently activate computer interface elements without thinking or knowing.


I used to get calls from Dad on a weekly basis asking me to come over and undo what his "dad clicking" had done to his work. It used to annoy me a bit; now I miss it.

Dick, at the bottom left of your text keyboard on your phone (android, yes?) you'll see what looks like a microphone. Click it and speak away, but be prepared for the inevitable translation errors (proof read before hitting "send").

Wa-al, I did exaggerate a bit, there. Don't like to admit that I actually have any rapport with anything electronic. Get by just like I did in school; skate by on just what gets me through and not "study" anything. Had it to do over, I would have paid attention and taken some notes. Too late, now.

I was schooled and trained in tech stuff, and worked in tech for most of my life. Maybe that's why I postponed getting a smart phone for as long as I did - my brain only holds so much stuff... But, I finally got an iPhone about a month ago... So many buttons! Afraid of "Dad clicking".

Talk to Text does make some humorous translations.

Be berry berry careful !
