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."

Markissy

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."

moby1kenobi

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.

Where I went to school there was a special program that the super smart could enroll in.

It was called 'The International Baccalaureate.'

It's an intense program of elite classes, taught by the finest minds, and triple the homework of everyone else.

It was assumed that every student in the program would go onto rule the world.

Some did. Some most definitely did not.

Others cracked under the pressure of the program and fell apart by sophomore year.

So you never know.

The Kindest Things People Have Ever Overheard About Themselves

There are plenty of backstabbers and those who are purported "friends" throwing you under the bus to save their reputation.

Who knows what else is being said about you behind your back? Is that paranoia? Perhaps.

When we're feeling insecure, we tend to assume the worst about the people we include in our circle. Maybe it's time to stop that.

Because as it turns out, for the most part, people are kinder than we give them credit for, and not everything being discussed about you behind your back are always bad.

We've all had our moments where it took us an embarrassingly long time to grasp a concept.

Something we can laugh off after a few minutes, days or years.

However, sometimes we might encounter people whose grasp of reality, logic and common sense is so off the rails, that we still have trouble shutting our jaws.

We're talking "next-level stupid."

Mind you, this doesn't necessarily mean that these people are stupid themselves.

Rather, they find themselves in a moment where they don't come off looking like the sharpest knife in the box, leaving all those around them dumbfounded.

And inadvertently providing stories which will last them a lifetime.
