22 of the Dumbest Things Said or Done by Parents
Parents are often run down from being under the constant, crushing weight of responsibility, which means there are at least a handful of moments when these life-giving people will say or do some of the dumbest shit imaginable. We can’t necessarily blame them, but we also can’t deny that their slips of stupidity are incredibly hilarious. One Redditor, for example, mentioned the time their mother called the police to report a suspicious cloud in the sky. It was the Aurora Borealis.
Along those lines, other Redditors have told the tales of their dummy parents — from a dad who thinks the internet shuts down at 5 p.m., to a mom who isn’t sure whether World War I or World War II came first.
