Entitled Influencer's Dad Disputes Contest, Ruins Entire Project

All it had to be was a dumb marketing project with some giveaway stuff, but one "do you know who my father is" type just had to be involved. Overzealous and aggressive parents speaking on behalf of their children can lead to a lot of pain and suffering down the road, like this parent who blamed a teacher for their own kid not being in virtual class.

For some, mayonnaise is definitely one of those rare condiments that pairs nicely with a wide array of foods, but when consumed by itself it is absolutely gnarly. Props to the girl for powering through like she did. Poor mom was mortified.

Tumblr Users Explain Older Generations' Confusing Texts

This enlightening Tumblr thread shines light on the glaring differences that can arise in a texting conversation between a millennial and a boomer or GenXer. Basically, it boils down to the millennials (or younger generations in general) trying to text like they think they'd sound in real life, while the boomers are apt to text more formally and technically correct regardless of how it'd sound when read out loud. 

These different approaches definitely contribute toward some avoidable misinterpretations between folks. What you might've viewed as a passive aggressive text from a parent was actually just them trying to space out their words more. Weird.

There's no denying the fact that we love our dad jokes here. What we might love even more than the typical dad joke is when we get to see a daughter overwhelm her dad with pride over her successful telling of a dad joke herself. Dad pretty much looks like he's never been more proud of something before in his life.
