Why parents AREN'T allowed on eBay!


So I signed my Mum up to eBay so she could buy stuff...like you do. But being somewhat technically challenged, I thought it would be easier to do the signing for her, and all she had to do was click on the activation email. Easy right?  This is the msn conversation I had with her...


Urban Princess says: (9:07:44 PM)
hello

Urban Princess says: (9:07:50 PM)
did you get an email from eBay?

Mum says: (9:07:52 PM)
yes

Urban Princess says: (9:08:11 PM)
did you click on it?

Mum says: (9:08:24 PM)
no

Urban Princess says: (9:08:28 PM)
um...

Mum says: (9:08:29 PM)

Urban Princess says: (9:08:33 PM)

Urban Princess says: (9:08:36 PM)

Mum says: (9:08:46 PM)
