STFU, Grandpa – we’ve got Google now
If you’ve ever suspected that grandparents were obsolete human furniture who were always shouting at the telly and being a bit racist, today’s young scamps have proved you right.
Instead of asking their elder relatives for advice, 90% of youngsters would rather ask Grandpa Google, according to a rather witless survey by cleaning company Dr Beckmann.
According to 1,500 grandparents, only a third of them had been asked ‘what was it like when you were young?’ (Probably because they would actually TELL them). Similarly, practical tasks like sewing on buttons were left to internet searches, and 8 out of 10 grandparents felt that they had less contact with their children because of that bloody internet taking away our corner shops etc.
But perhaps grandparents should quit moaning and try to diversify, like everyone else. If they could tell their grandchildren where to find decent lolcats, answer questions like ‘why is my vagina look funny??!!111, and show them an exclusive Rihanna sex tape, then they might stand a chance. #justsaying
