My Mom gave me my birthday money early.  I spent half on dishes and just guess where the rest of it is going.  (Hint: Not Barnes and Noble)

You're buying your mom a Kindle?

No, my Mom is not one for "gadgets". I spent two weeks with her and tried to teach her how to use the DVR and she still can not get it.  However, I bought 12 books.

My mom is the same way with the DVR.

My mom was that way with a VCR.  "I don't need to learn it, I have you to do it."

I am happy to report that my mom can manuever her Kindle, but won't buy books until I do it for her.  She's afraid she might do something wrong.  Good for me as it's hooked up to my account.

My Mom hasn't progressed past the VCR Plus that I bought her (hem-hem) years ago.
I couldn't get my parents to use the VCR Plus...

My mom can't even change the input on her tv. I also have to order things online for her, because she doesn't know how...it got to the point where I used to have her credit card number memorized. lol.

I replaced the battery in our car at my mom's one time, she told all of her friends, they thought I was some kind of genius...

Hmmm if you drink the tequila first, you will either be able to use up the gift certificate really fast through lack of inhibition, or not at all through lack of ability to use the keyboard, depending on your tolerance....
