My mother is eighty years old, however still unquestionably sharp & super spry.
She lives on her own & is severely independent.
She still drives, often picks up and goes out to dinner with friends & remains active in neighborhood politics. My mother often also spends a lot of time on her PC. She looks up how to service things, recipes, new group events & all sorts of stuff. She downloads all sorts of information & pictures & likes to carefully print everything. She goes through a ton of ink & paper. Just recently, my mother had some horrible issues with her printer. The equipment was gigantic, heavy & terribly outdated. She was ultra excited to substitute the printer with a new model with more options. She hoped to be able to easily print wirelessly & fax. My mother asked me for help in determining which make & model would ultimately be best. I’ve had some unquestionably terrible experiences with buying printers. Many of the available models are complete garbage. I told my mother to deliver me some time to properly research the issue. I wanted to make sure she purchased a printer that would be compatible for a long time with her PC, be simple to operate & provide all the operations she needed. The next morning, my mother called & said she’d bought a printer. She’d driven to an office supply store that day & gotten talked into a printer by the salesman. The printer she bought required print cartridges that honestly could only be ordered directly from the manufacturer. They were super pricey & extremely tough to install. I packed the printer back into the box & returned it to the office supply store immediately. I was absolutely annoyed at the salesman for talking an 78 year aged woman into such a pricey model.
