Mom: I wasn’t able to load contacts into my email, and the computer started running really slow, so I called Outlook and they helped me out.
Scott: You called “Outlook?”
Mom: Yep, Microsoft Outlook. They walked me through the problem. Turns out that people are getting onto my…not my Scottrade account…but onto my internet.
Scott: Your “internet?” Do you mean your network?
Mom: I’ve seen them outside, parked. We’re getting all of their viruses.
Scott: Wait, but — you don’t even use Outlook.
Mom: I used to use Firefox…
Scott: Fire…. Mom, that’s totally different. Firefox is a web browser. Outlook is email software. And you may have called Microsoft, which is a company. All unrelated.
Mom: Did I do something wrong?
Scott: No, you didn’t do anything wrong. You’re just not using the right words and as a result, this is making no sense.
Mom: (long pause) Is it because of the people getting onto my internet?
