Unclear on the concept award

Question from an older lady:

"I recently got an email site and I forgot to put spam blocker on it. Is there any way I can do that now?"

[Long pause and blank look from me]

"um, do you mean an email address?"

"Yes."

"Well, I don't know. The best way to not get spam is to not put your email address on the internet."

"Well, everytime I visit a website like the library or something, all these things pop up. Advertisements."

"That doesn't have anything to do with your email."

"I know. I was just using that as an example."

"Well, I'm not a computer tech, so I really don't know." [Actually, I do know more than what I let on, but I'm not here to educate the computer illiterate. Sorry.]

I enjoyed reading through part of your blog, and you have some real classics! I'm a public librarian, and some of the things that happen I would have never even DREAMED would happen! Thanks for sharing the humor:)
