How does one not know that the internet is required for email to happen?
Wait until they tell him that he has to pay for data in order to get email. That might be fun to listen in on.
P: I have to pay for data? What data? I just want email. C: Yes sir, I know, but email requires that data be sent to your phone. P: How does it get to my phone? C: Either wirelessly from an internet router or from the cell tower. P: Well, the internet is dead, so I only want the data from the cell tower. C: Sir, you do know that the data travels on the internet before it gets to the tower, right? P: That can't be right. The internet is dead. Just sent my email from the tower and we'll be all set.
