"Now all of these squares are their own individual apps. Prime Video is its own app. Disney is its own app," her grandson teaches her in the video.
For youngsters, using mobiles and smart TVs is super easy. When they get a new TV or a phone, they are able to figure out the key functions within no time. However, that’s not the case with their parents or grandparents. It takes them time to understand the latest technology but it is adorable to see them persevere and learn despite the difficulty. In a Tiktok video posted by @willdonayrehart, a grandson is seen explaining to his grandmother the different applications on the smart TV. The grandson, Will, says, “Now all of these squares are their own individual apps. Prime Video is its own app. Disney is its own app.” He emphasizes, “They have nothing to do with each other but they are all apps.” Then he asks his grandmother to go down and find Netflix. As she scrolls down, he tells her "okay so this square right here is what’s controlling the table.” She responds to him, “so I have to put that down on Netflix.” She goes down and finally clicks on Netflix and opens it. It ends with the grandson saying, “Beautiful you’re in" and the grandmother looks relieved.
The video is captioned, "Hung Grandmas ❤️New 75in TCL Smart Tv, Got Comcast internet Installed and Teaching Her How To Use Netflix." It has more than 597,000 likes and 15,000 comments in 24 hours. Many on Tiktok loved the way Will taught his grandma about the smart TV. @ressebrown commented, "This is exactly how we need to teach people with patience." @wuensches-wags commented, "as the resident tech support for my grandparents...I salute you." @costcoguide commented, "Okay, this is awesome! You should go to senior centers and do this for a living! 🥰"
The relationship between grandparents and grandkids is beautiful. Grandkids try to make sure that grandparents get whatever they ask for. In another story, a 106-year-old grandma had always wanted to meet an alpaca and her granddaughter, Kerry, finally made it happen in November last year. Speaking to ABC News about making the centenarian's bucket list wish come true, Kerry said, "At 106, who can deny a wish? I just tried to make it happen." Elma has been an avid knitter all her life and was always intrigued by every aspect of it. "She has always been fascinated with aspects of wool and just decided she has never seen [an alpaca] and wanted to know all about them," Kerry said.
Since she didn't know where to look for an alpaca, Kerry turned to social media for help and soon got a response. "[These] wonderful ladies answered the [post]," she said. They informed her that they have a two-month alpaca and another that is nine months old. Kerry then came from Victoria to meet up with her family and Elma's local community at Woolgoolga, New South Wales, to fulfill her grandmother's dream of meeting alpacas. Elma was shocked and overjoyed when she finally met an alpaca. "I love them. I'd like to take one home, but we're not allowed animals [in the nursing home]," she said. "They are such gentle creatures."
She added that at "106 and three quarters", it felt "strange" to be kissed by an alpaca. "I've never been kissed by an alpaca before," Elma said. The experience was made even more memorable by a mini family reunion as Elma's kin gathered from near and far to witness her dream come true.
