43. The cool parent
We all know that parents consist of the good cop and the bad cop, and it’s pretty clear that in this partnership, the dad is the cool cop (as is usually the case, isn’t that so?) This is texting, and parenting, done right. He’s obviously kidding, and his child is obviously lying, but in this exchange it almost seems as if the father has tricked his son.
Or rather he’s just a really cool father who wants his kid to enjoy his teens to the fullest. Either way, texts like this is both the reason why parents should never be allowed to text – since this obviously wasn’t fun for his kid – and also the all the more reason why parents should never stop texting, so we could enjoy these funny exchanges.
