My sentiments exactly. We don't have any teenagers left in our house (FE runs laughing into the poppy field), they've all flown the nest, but I always try to arrange for one of them to come for lunch on clock-changing days.
Today it's the turn of my 20 year-old daughter, who has just flitted throught the whole house in twenty minutes, deftly resetting electronic devices on the fly. She's now sitting here drinking coffee and laughing at a father who has worked with computers for more years than she's been alive, but who still can't tune the video, skim through the SKY menus at the speed of light, or set the oven timer. She sends text messages almost quicker than I can type on a keyboard. She works in the airline industry, and can sort out the best deal for any destination from any airport in the world in about a minute - it's all very depressing.
Yep, I spend most of the day resetting clocks. The mechanical one's I can do, no problem. My VCR and Satellite decoder automatically resets, as does my PC. I tend to forget the Central Heating clock and the Washing Machine timer (for cheap night time electricity). The one I can't do though is my Casio Digital Wristwatch, I always have to get next door's kid to do it for me, and he does it in about 10 seconds. How does he do that???
It's very comforting to know that there are others just as useless as myself. I stare at a batch of incomprehensible buttons, get out the instructions and half an hour later, or more, they are still incomprehensible. Along come the youngsters and just do it. It's all a mystery.
