MP3- Over My Head

Just what the heck does 'MP3' really mean? My kid gave me the blasted thing, a fairly decent brand, and it came with no instructions. Okay, uhm, yo, some of us are new to the whole tech thing!! Give me a friggin' break! Computers for Dummies was over my head, okay? Well, the Punk took over my computer and put an album on the blasted thing. He explained in excrusiating detail how it was done. I forgot most but not all. (I know, what's new, right, Punk?) I remembered just enough to scream swear words and threaten to throw both devices out the nearest door, window, hole it made when thrown...

The kid took over, showed me again tonight... then left. Needless to say, I spent an hour putting a few of my favorite albums on the computer, painstakingly typing the titles of each song... only to have it all disappear.

More swearing, almost in tears, the kid finally answered her phone... and gave no help what so ever. Finally, after a lot of trial and error, more swearing,(yup, I would have made a sailor blush tonight) I finally figured it out. It should be ingrained, embedded in my brain now. Probably not, and I will get on someone's nerves the next time I get the harebrained idea to add to the MP3. But, hey, at least all that's on there is what I want, not someone else's choices. Just don't ask me how I did it, or to show what's on the stupid little thing. I'm still figuring out how to make the thing work...
