In the age of texting, it may seem a bit odd that parents would even still bother with leaving notes around. After all, if you’ve sent it right to someone’s phone, they’re definitely gonna see it, and shooting off a text certainly takes less time than, say, printing and cutting out instructions.
But then again, there’s something so much more personal and tactile about the actual note. It lets your kids know that you care, and more importantly, it gives a sense of foreboding, like they’re really there in the room with you, even if they’re not.
Watching. Judging. Expecting.
That’s why these notes from parents are the best.
10. Is that you, Alf?
Even I’m too young to be making Alf references, what’s wrong with me?
9. Oh, baby
Look your life is your business but I ain’t taking care of no grandkids right now.
8. Three in one
That’s pretty optimistic, dad.
7. Towel off
It’s not that funking hurd.
6. Compare and contrast
Something tells me Eric will very much be smoking the stank and hoodlum-doing.
5. Get Daniel at 6
I love how this shifts from a note of concern to a burn on a dime.
4. Spoiler alert
Spark notes is getting lazier and lazier.
3. That summer breeze
Or terribly wrong, I don’t know.
2. Bean thing
The best part of waking up is probably not this.
1. The connection games
True innovation right here.
I guess modern problems do call for modern solutions.
