Thanks to the internet, most things are now easier with just a few clicks. However, the same can’t be said for the older generation, who often find it challenging to adapt to the advancement of technology. Be it shopping or ordering in food, several parents and grandparents are slowing trying to figure things out themselves.
A Twitter user recently shared a note written by his father on how to use an online cab aggregator, and the wholesome approach is well-known to all. Rahul Gupta shared how his father jots down steps in chronological order while Uber.

The tweet resonated with many online, as handwritten step-by-step instructions reminded several people of their own parents. The company too joined in the conversation saying, “No harm in a cheat sheet!”

Others appreciated the man’s willingness to try and learn new things. Some even remarked on how life comes a full circle when children start teaching their parents.

Our parents continue to adapt & improvise. Food for thought for all developers to make App UI more friendly for elderly users. https://t.co/3NNtxO8r4Y

Our parents are clearly more adjusting & eager-to-learn than us. Regardless of their age, they don’t give up on a thing, a person, a hobby/skill or a relationship just because it doesn’t make sense to them. They wait & make efforts to learn while we’re too eager to stop trying. https://t.co/HANDD1wa98

My father writes everything in his diary, he spends at least 20 mins daily to write down the things happened that day. I many times tried to maintain diary writing, but failed. Our fathers are just superb.

Remember how we used to remember the steps in our head to tie our shoe laces which was taught by our dads?
I don’t see much of a difference here :)
People don’t age, they start being a baby again 🥰
