It’s always a scary situation when something that looks like a distress signal is communicated. Your entire life can change when your parent evokes something that smells like danger in their text, which is why Mom should probably be more careful next time in the way she articulates her texts.
Hopefully, her daughter updated her that texting the police doesn’t work. But remember, there are no stupid questions… only stupid people.
People often have the dilemma of either complimenting their child/spouse for something that they don’t agree with or just telling them the truth at the risk of being offensive. This mother clearly doesn’t care one bit about offending her daughter as she breezes past her daughter’s inadequacies like she’s discussing tomorrow’s weather forecast.
If there’s one child on this list that most urgently needs some therapy, it’s gotta be this one.
Lack of Knowledge in the Art of Emojis
Back in the day, millennials had to use various letters and signs to create their emojis. This was a creative and brave exploration of combining language with artful communication. Many of us remember the time when ‘:-p’ meant sticking your tongue out and ‘:-o' meant you were surprised.
Parents have sort of skipped that generation and gone straight to today’s graphic, done-for-you emojis. Many of them don’t know how to activate and use these, which is what sets the stage for this funny exchange.
Basic Logic 101
While some parents feel that they can’t really talk to their children, there are many kids who feel the same way about their parents. Usually, one of the two thinks and talks more emotionally, while the other uses logic to make sense of things. When a parent isn’t fluent in their child’s language, it’s often the children who are in the frustrating position of trying to communicate basic facts.
Luckily, these exchanges can still give someone a good laugh, but that depends on their ability to turn an ironic situation into something funny rather than sad.
That’s Not a Winking Face...
Parents sometimes have a certain inability to successfully adopt emojis. At best, the most tech-savvy mothers and fathers usually get as far as learning how to occasionally use the smiley emoji with only a few errors.
This exchange shows you exactly why parents should avoid using emojis, as they have a much larger risk of embarrassing themselves than actually looking cool.
