While the the phrase “YOLO” is a bit outdated, the wisdom of this expression lives on. Even adults have adopted this phrase recent years and use it to connect with the younger generation. Here we see how it inspired this mom to buy a new car, even though she can’t afford it!
While this phrase often results in extremely embarrassing exchanges between parents and kids, considering how most of the time people use it incorrectly, in this case, this mom used it quite accurately. Much to her child’s dismay, this mother and her spending habits might be getting a little out of hand.
When Parents Go Nuts
Parents are not exactly the most talented people when it comes to using emojis. With today’s graphic emojis, even fewer people know how to use classic text signs to get their point across. This mother apparently thought that ‘<3’ means ice cream, which is not hard to figure out why.
The resulting exchange is just an example of miscommunication between parents and children. Perhaps instead of going to get an ice cream cone, it would be a good time to set your kids up with some love, clearly this child is craving some parental affection. Or maybe even psychological counselling.
That’s Good to Know
Parenting involves a lot of situations you're not going to foresee, things no parenting book or nature documentary about baby penguins will prepare you for. For example, we all hear how much children become their parents whole world and obsess over them. In this case, it's not like that at all.
While parents usually let their kids know how much they love and miss them, this father went the exact opposite route and made sure to let his daughter know that he doesn’t miss her, not at all. It could have been a sarcastic message or it could be that he's just trying to be funny, either way, we hope they're on good terms.
Matchmaker in the Dog Park
There are few things more annoying in this world than to have your mother try and find you a boyfriend. We've all been asked; "When are you going to meet someone?” So we can totally relate to this Jewish mother who went to the dog park and sent a photo of a prospective partner is just too hilarious.
Apparently, this mom has been going to the dog park for a while now, and up until this message, her child didn't know why. Our question is, how did this mom manage to take this photo so sneakily that the guy didn't notice? Or perhaps he did and didn't mind.
When Mom's Jokes Are Worse Than Dad's
Depending on how you grow up, that first joke with your parents might be completely normal or it might be exceedingly awkward. While dads are famous for bad jokes, sometimes moms also know how to be funny, and, judging by her response to this text, this is definitely one of those times.
And to be honest, this mom clearly seems to get it, as not only has she heard of the word "crackalaking", but she's also using "lol"! As funny as she is, her child does not seem to agree, which we can all relate to, when our parents make a joke, it's just not that funny.
