(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!
