  1. Stone Age Parent: But how hard do you rub the sticks together to make the fire? What makes the spark - I don't get it...
    Offspring: 🙄
  2. 3,500's B. C. Parent: So wait, this round thing is called a "wheel?" And how do you roll it again?
    Offspring: 🙄
  3. 360's B. C. Parent: You get up on the horse and sit on that thing - what's it called, a "settle?" "Saddle?" And the horse just takes you where you want to go?
    Offspring: 🙄
  4. 1880's Parent: But where's the fire?? How does this glass tube create light - is that metal thing on the inside on fire? I don't understand.
    Offspring: 🙄
  5. 1890's Parent: This wagon contraption won't go anywhere without a horse pulling it, I don't care what you say this "interminable comdustion engine" thingie can do.
    Offspring: 🙄
  6. 1900's Parent: Why does the needle have to go on the inside of the record? I put it on the outside and it only played half a song, that was frustrating.
    Offspring: 🙄
  7. 1910's Parent: But when I pick up this thing and hold it to my ear, I don't hear anything - there is nobody talking. Dial someone?? How do I do that??
    Offspring: 🙄
  8. 1920's Parent: Are there tiny people inside this box? How does that... what did you call it? "signal".... Get inside the box? I don't understand how this television thing works, how do I turn it off?
    Offspring: 🙄
  9. 1930's Parent: There's no blade on that contraption, how is it supposed to shave my face? It's too loud, why is it so loud?
    Offspring: 🙄
  10. 1950's Parent: So I just give them this card and that counts as payment? What do I do with my checks, do they still need those?
    Offspring: 🙄
  11. 1960's Parent: So I just put food in this box and close the door and it gets cooked? Where's the fire? Where does the smoke go! What are the numbers for? Don't microwaves cause cancer?
    Offspring: 🙄
  12. 1970's Parent: I listened to music for a while, but then it stopped and the machine made a clicking sound. "Rewind?" What's that mean? A triangle button - I see two of those, which direction? My left or your left?
    Offspring: 🙄
  13. 1980's Parent: How does this big box with a lens record? The red button, what red button? There's a flashing red light, what does that mean?
    Offspring: 🙄
  14. 1990's Parent: So this little thing tells me where to go? How does it know where I am? Where are the maps??
    Offspring: 🙄
  15. 2000's Parent: This phone is so small - I keep losing it. How do you type the letters, I see 3 or 4 on each button....?
    Offspring: 🙄
  16. 2010's Parent: So what is this thing? It's just a widget that spins? And you take videos and send them to snapbook and tweeter your grahams? I don't understand.
