Dads Share The Most Embarrassing Slang Terms They Use On Their Kids

[rebelmouse-image 18347798 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dads are a wacky bunch. They will do anything to get a laugh and if they can get that laugh at the expense of their child's embarrassment... that's a dad WINNING!! Sometimes they say things or just an all too familiar "slang" just to try to fit in or ask questions about current culture out of a genuine bewilderment. Most times though they're simply plotting and they have impeccable timing.

Redditor _the-tinman asked the fathers of Reddit to admit to some of the most embarrassing things they said to their kids. Some dads are cooky! _

SILENCE IS GOLDEN.

Just say "whatup fam?" Then when they get mad yell "worldstar."

SHAKE IT OFF!

When something surprises you, say you are "shook."

CALL ME JAMES PLEASE.

DO YOUR BEST HARRISON.

I am taking my 14 year old daughter and her friends to an Anime convention. They are all dressing up to cosplay anime characters.

I decided to dress up as Indiana Jones, And I guess that is the worst thing in the worked and now I am an a**hole it seems.

HEY BRO... I MEAN... BRUH.

[rebelmouse-image 18347802 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Say _"bruh" _after literally every sentence.

PENCILS UP.

I must be getting old because I came into this intending to contribute but instead I'm taking notes.

OH YOU'RE SO FUNNY. NOT!

My dad used to go into Carls Jr and call everyone Carl. Go into Wendy's and call everyone Wendy.

PUFFY OR DIDDY.

[rebelmouse-image 18977768 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Ugh, my 60 year old mother loves to say things are "the puff daddy" when she thinks something is awesome or superior. So you should probably point out things that you also find to be the "puff daddy/cringes."

GET IT TOGETHER.

"Sweetie, you're at a critical point in your life. The choices you make now can determine the outcome of your future. This is why I need you to promise me you'll take school seriously. The sky is the limit if you just try. I only tell you this because I love you and I want you to be woke as HELL"

LET ME DIM THAT LIGHT.

[rebelmouse-image 18977770 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Wondering what she's up to today? Spice things up by saying "Ayy what's gucci fam? We're heading to the park wanna join? It's gonna be lit."

FAKE NEWS.

[rebelmouse-image 18357538 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

To agree with something she says reply "Factsssss!"

THAT'S NOT A THING.

[rebelmouse-image 18355039 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Did you dab on her though?

GOOD OLD BLUE EYES.

[rebelmouse-image 18977771 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

While you're reading the paper just quietly and slowly say "gucci gang... gucci gang... gucci gang... gucci gangggg" in whatever tune you feel like. I'd recommend channeling Sinatra.

TELL IT TO YOUR MOTHER.

[rebelmouse-image 18977773 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I always tell my daughter, "Word, Yo" whenever she wants me to do something for her. She doesn't ask me much anymore.

PLEASE SHUT UP!

[rebelmouse-image 18977774 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad makes up a bunch of euphemisms for menstruation that are much worse than saying "Are you on your period"?

And honestly if it weren't for the fact that he thinks these euphemisms are somehow more appropriate than just saying "are you on your period" [in the context of asking if he needs to get me anything], he'll very loudly announce:

"Are you on your P?"

"Do you need SUPPLIES?"

And that's so much worse than just saying period. Oh my god. Just ask if I need pads.

PLEASE DON'T START THAT AGAIN!

[rebelmouse-image 18977775 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Next time her friends are over, tell her you'll leave them alone, but to _"cash me ousside if you need anything." _Say it on front of her friends for max damage. Bonus if you dab before you leave.

I'LL GOOGLE GOOGLE.

[rebelmouse-image 18977776 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm partial to saying _"I'm finna pop a goog" _instead of _"I'm going to google this thing"_

I've received mixed responses.

SIMMER DOWN NOW.

[rebelmouse-image 18977777 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When she gets upset, tell her she's "being extra"

Side note: it just means you're over reacting, which she will do after about 2 or 3 of these terms. Haha

SERIOUSLY?!?!

[rebelmouse-image 18977778 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Wuss poppin' B?"

Deada** is a good word, it's a synonym of actually and "I'm being serious."

"Did you deada**..." "Deada** I did"

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
