LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rules Of Engagement star Patrick Warburton is way behind on today’s tech trends.

In a world of Twitter, iPhones, and text messaging, Warburton – who plays married man Jeff Bingham on the sitcom – admits he’s completely lost.

He’s a total “klutz” at texting, still owns an old flip phone, and didn’t even actually get an email address until about four years ago.

His lack of tech savvy makes him the butt of the joke with his four kids, who ridicule him whenever he tries to text them.

Moreover, the big, brawny actor is kind of a wuss when it comes to video games.

Warburton refuses to play video games with his kids because he’s tired of “being made to feel lame.”

He adds, “I get sick of getting my a handed to me by my kids. It’s not fun!”

Rules Of Engagement airs Mondays on CBS.
