It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

Ummm...

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

Do I even want to know what the hell "worldstar" is? Ugh. I'm old now.

This is actually sweet.

"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 world."

For them? Yeah. Bonus points if you quote some awesome Indy lines.

"When something surprises you..."

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

And when you're really, really surprised, say that you're "shooketh."

Say what?

"Wuss poppin' Jimbo?"

LordMalgus

How about you don't but we'll say that you did?

"Wait..."

"Wait till she’s in an argument with your spouse, or being slightly verbose in a public place, pull out your phone and shout “world star!"

citizen_tronald_rump

There it is again! Do I really need to start adding this to my vocabulary? Because I really don't want to.

Bruh!

"Say bruh after literally every sentence."

Your mother and i have decided we are getting a divorce. Bruh.

Like that?

"He did things like..."

"My dad never used slang terms. He did things like ask if I applied my rash cream and if my gum disease was bothering me in front of people."

This sounds like it definitely impacted your ability to get dates.

"Ugh..."

"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."

[deleted]

She knows exactly what she's doing.

An evil genius.

"I used..."

"I used the "You ain't woke fam. I'm too lit" on my 15 yr old daughter. I'm 46. Her exact response, walking by without looking at me. "I don't even think you understand what you are saying."

Plot twist: But you did.

You totally did.

"I'm partial to saying..."

"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."

alpha11411

Gee, I wonder why?

Hmmm...

"My dad..."

"My dad tells me to stay woke."

[deleted]

Daddy sounds bomb.

And there you have it. If you have a kid, they better watch out. But do report back. The results are undoubtedly hilarious.

It's never attractive to gloat.

Though every so often, we can't help boast about our accomplishments or the accomplishments of others.

Even so, it can get exhausting to hear others go on and on about a recent achievement.

Particularly if that achievement might not exactly be worth celebrating.

Indeed, some people are so inclined to brag about certain elements of their life, that they often don't stop to consider whether or not bringing attention to it is, in fact, a very good idea.

Who hasn't on one occasion or another looked at someone with a svelte physique and become green with envy?

Wishing that we looked like them, and compelling us to hit the gym and lose a few pounds.

As such, we often roll our eyes when skinny folk complain about their weight and/or appearance.

But should we be throwing them the cold shoulder or offering a shoulder to cry on instead?

As maybe being skinny, by choice or simply genetics, might not be as easy or glamorous as it appears.

There are several prerequisites people might look for in a partner before agreeing to marry them.

Stable profession, where they see their future going, how well they get along with friends and family.

Then, of course, there's the matter of how they are in bed.

Something which might pose a problem should they find themselves dating someone who wants to hold off until after marriage.

Antiquated as the policy sounds, more people choose to abstain till marriage than one might imagine.

A policy which might not only prove problematic in finding a prospective fiancé, but could also be a potential deal breaker at the very start of the relationship.

Non-Asexuals Reactions To The Idea Of An Asexual Significant Other

No two people have the same sex drive.

There are those who simply can't get enough sex, as it is what empowers them and gives them purpose, such as the glorious Samantha Jones of Sex And The City.

Then there are those who could go days, weeks, months, even years without having even the tiniest sexual encounter, but live perfectly happy lives.

The proud asexuals.

Providing it is safe and consensual, there is no right and wrong when it comes to sex.

However, supposing one day two people had a classic Hollywood "meet cute", firmly believing it to be love at first sight, only to discover that one half of this prospective couple is asexual and the other is not.

What would their reactions be?
