Today is my first time to visit the ring house in months. There were some residents patiently waiting for us with their phones, ipods, laptop and questions. The old lady got a list of questions from her bag. The first thing I did was to help her using iphone. She said, “I can do the basic things with iphone, but I want to focus on it.” She then told me that sometimes she missed the phone call but she cannot find the number in a moment. So I told her what to do step by step, finally, she could find the number in “recent”. Then, I helped her identify a phone number and save it to her contacts. She made a phone call first and figured out who he is. Next, I taught her how to create a new contact, she listened to me carefully and finally grasped. At last, she told me that she still had some problems on how to delete the photos quickly. We opened the “photo” first, and then clicked on “select”, then she choose the pictures that she doesn’t need and click on “trash” icon, she felt very happy and hugged me for a long time.
I am amazed that she prepared her questions so well. Overall, it was a fun experience helping people and I hope it’s just as good in weeks to come.
