This Cool Professor Teaches Your Mom Email


(music playing) – All right moms, settle
down, settle down please. My name is Ms. Shankar, but, hey. That’s the name of my unwed
aunt, so call me Ms. S. I am your teacher for
today and we are gonna learn some pretty fun stuff. To start? Email. – Psh. Who’s this bozo? – I hear she’s some daughter here to teach us about computers. – Sorry, is there a problem ladies? – Email’s a waste of time.
Can’t we just read a book? – (laughs) You wanna read a book? – Yeah. – Is a book gonna give you coupons? – (gasps) Coupons, where are coupons? – Email has coupons? – Almost too many. Now, um. These textbooks? Toss ’em. Yeah. You can toss ’em. So you’re just, sort of,
gently putting them… – [Mom With Red Glasses]
We don’t throw books. – You’re all very considerate moms. Okay. Who here can tell me
how to write an email? Yeah. – Do you forward a chain message? – No. Don’t do that, people hate those. Anyone else? – Do I shout at the machine
until I wake up my daughter? – Uh, no. Close but no. Anyone else? – Is it shouting? – So, to write an email,
you hit the compose button. So that’s gonna be the little
square icon with the pencil. We all looking? Okay, great. Yeah? – What’s my password?
My son set up my account and he said he was gonna write my password on a sticky note but he never did. – [Mom With Floral
Shirt] That’s a bad son. – Damn. All right everyone calm
down, mind your business. Okay, show’s over. (sighs) Okay. We’re gonna get that
password back for you, all right? Let’s just get it sent
to you. Boom. You’re in. – Thanks Ms. S. – [Ms. S] Moving on. Yes. – Ms. S? How do you respond to an email? – Wow, okay, we got a little Einstein Miss Eager Beaver over here! – (laughs) She’s funny! – She could be on that Seinfeld. – Yes! – So. To reply to an email you hit the little curved arrow button. – So I don’t have to write a new email every single time I reply
to an existing email? – No. In fact, never do that. That sucks. Now we’re gonna move on
to managing your inbox. – I like her. But has she
gained weight during this class? – Or lost weight? – Whatever is going on with
her body naturally, it’s bad. – Focus up. (yawns) Excuse me? You in the back? What, no laptop? – So? Email’s dumb. When am I gonna even need
to use that horse hockey? (gasps) – Now we’re not being polite. – All right. Let’s break it down for ya. Picture email like a Kmart. But, you can’t know what’s in the Kmart unless you know how to get there. So, the internet’s like
your car, the inbox is like a coupon flyer,
and the message, well, that’s like a novelty coffee mug with a picture of coffee on it. – I would love that. – Yeah, it’s incredible. (bell rings) – All right, scram everyone.
And make sure to do your assignment, okay? Do not write an email with caps lock in it. – [Woman With Floral Shirt]
But I can’t turn mine off. – [Woman With Purple Sweater] Me neither! – Well, I’ll figure that out next time. – Thanks Ms. S. – Hey, Ms. S? That lesson
was pretty cool today. – Well, thank you Linda. – Call me Mrs. Carson. – Um… – Yeah? – Would it… – (laughs) Mrs. Carson,
please. Don’t think of me as just your teacher,
think of me as your pal. You can talk to me. – Would it kill you to
do something different with your hair? – Okay, I like my hair the way it is. – It doesn’t suit your face at all. – Are you kidding me? Tons
of people like my hair!

  2. Just saw the recent dorkly video with pat cassels, Which got me thinking. Is pat gonna get his revenge on trapp or is he still in traffic

  3. WOAH!…. woah… hold the phone… Was that Jill Bearup in a dirty brown wig?! Cause if not she's got a double in the USA and I don't know how I feel about that 0_o

  4. Is this really a thing? My parents know more about email than I do. I mean they need to use it for their Fucking jobs. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of things they don't understand about computers but email is probably what they know best

  5. "Tons of people like my hair!"
    2 seconds later
    New hairstyle, new clothes, new location
    Wow she gives in to pressure easily

  6. Is this 1995? Because even my grandmother who is 95 knows how to use email. And nobody has sent a chain letter email since the days of AOL.

  7. it's 2019, do you really think the average parent doesn't understand email? Email has been around for literally decades, this sketch feels like it should have been made in 2003, unfortunately it still wouldn't be funny then.

  8. Moms aren't the only ones who fall prey to the dreaded cAPSLOCK. My stepsister, she's 28, once called me over because her laptop kept writing numbers, and there was this weird light labeled "NumLock", and she just couldn't figure out how to turn it off!

  9. How old are people’s moms that their mom acts like this? Are these Mom’s stay-at-home mom’s who have never held a job in regular business setting? As a Gen-Xer, I’m bewildered. Please, shed some light as I am apparently clueless

  10. Holy shit, I watched this on dropout and loved it, youtube has so many haters I think I'll just stick to the silence there!

  11. I need a video like this, but to teach my dad that the internet isn't brainwashing the masses and turning people into robots.

  12. This sketch was excellent. But I guarantee somehow the comments will still be about Brennan and Grant or Katie's cocaine

  13. Lawyer here with so many clients over 40 who just adamantly refuse to use email, making everyone's life needlessly delayed. It would be like if the entire classroom just never showed up and got mad at you for not coming to their homes to tutor them individually.

  14. I find the idea that people in their late 30s and 40s would have issues with email. I mean, my mom would have been 62 this year, but she was only my age when emails started to become common. Are some people's moms perhaps just a little dumb?

  15. We wana see rakas boobs please. You wil get 10000000 views 200000 likes and 111111 to 12000 new sub depending on how nice they are. You have nothing to loose college humor only everything to gain so DO IT ALREADY

  16. Uhm so wait you couldn't find older women to play the mom's? You couldn't even pretend they were older? Email has been around since 1991. Everyone of the moms in this video would have been using Email since they were in middle school. This is a video that watches like teaching my generation "social media" even though social media became a thing when we were in college.

    I love College Humor but this video felt like "Where's the joke?"Seriously. What's the joke supposed to be? This would have been funny a decade ago when we were in our late 20s and our parents were still stumbling along trying to learn to communicate with us. But it just felt like you might as well have a video where you're teaching parents how to drive cars.

  17. Now I want to see another skit where a substitute gets mad at jeggings and other overly sexual clothing pieces

  18. She's good with email, but can she solve the mystery of my dad's printer? How did he accidentally change the default printer in his browser? How is a printer that's only used for the occasional email or photo on one PC constantly a source of frustration? Why does he keep buying printers with built-in scanners when he'll never learn to use the scanner?

  19. I consistently end up sending an email to a friend on one topic and then a separate email about another topic a short while later.
    He will then respond to both on the same email in the most vague of terms so that I have to pull up the original message to see what he was responding to.
