My Dad Turns 80 and I Find Out His ReSTOR Eyes Are Better Than Mine!
My dad turned 80 yesterday! My sister and I decided to buy him an iPad for his birthday. He constantly travels back and forth to Florida, and is always watching movies on a mini DVD player, or listening to a book on tape. I figured an iPad would allow him to do all it in one. Only one problem, he is technologically challenged.
So, yesterday, after giving him his present, I spent some time configuring the iPad. He didn't even know if he had wireless in his house! After finding the wireless router I had to figure out it's code and password. Luckily they are printed on the router.
Now, at 54 years old, I consider myself lucky. I have perfect distance vision, and generally don't wear readers. This is certainly the exception. The print on the router is quite small, and every time I entered the information onto the iPad it did not configure! Finally I handed the router to my dad and asked him to read it. He got it right the first time and the router was configured!
I hate to admit it, but it appears that his 80 year old ReSTOR eyes work better than my 54 year old eyes! Boy is that depressing...
