20 Adults Who Don’t Understand What It Means To Be Cool But Are Trying Anyway

Share on Facebook

Thanks to the rapid pace of the internet, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to stay up-to-date on what’s the hippest or trendiest saying, meme or gif. And let’s be real: the older we get, the harder it is.

Twitter moves faster than a courtship between Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. How can anyone be expected to keep up? But hey, at least adults are trying. And these 20 adults are trying their darn hardest to remain lit AF.

This dad who’s just trying to watch some Twin Peaks.

How can you blame him? A guy has to get his David Lynch on!

Like this mom, we’re all trying to keep up with the group text.

Honestly, group texts can be insanely overwhelming. This mom is not to blame for the confusion. They simply move too quickly!

A dad trying to understand email is a wonderful, terrible thing.

Email is still hip and cool, and this father is doing his best. But yeah, if we were his kid, we’d be haunted forever too.

A CEO has never-ending jokes, didn’t you know?

A tweet punctuated by the crying emoji is just too lit for the internet. And it’s true – who doesn’t love a CEO who can crack nonstop jokes?

This is what Snapchat was made for.

His pun game is top notch. Dads on Snapchat is a scary, scary thought. Keep reading for even more hilarious adult fails.

So who’s going to tell her the truth?

That’s going to be an awkward conversation when this mom finds out what Twitter actually is. Maybe it’s best for everyone if she just avoids it.

When your dad kills not only the selfie game, but the pun game as well.

While sure, this is a typical parent trying to be cool, it’s actually very funny. We stan a dad who understands his brand!

The person in charge of this apartment building’s ads loves their job.

Meme culture has taken over! They’ve taken the millennials, but they’re coming for people in charge of advertising apartment building vacancies!

This math teacher is super hype for math.

Knowledge 4 Life, and you better not forget it. Math teachers have to amuse themselves somehow, right?

The person who decided this Snickers bar was savage.

When can we, as a society, decide to retire a word? Because ‘savage’ has been used a savage amount of times. So many adult fails, so little time.

The HR person behinds this flawless reference deserves a promotion.

Who cares that Mean Girls came out in 2004? If references to this movie never stopped, we would be so lucky and so “blessed” (as the kids say).

The dining hall’s got jokes.

Bet you didn’t think that your favorite comedian would be a university’s dining service. And yet, here we are. The font and color scheme truly makes this email perfect. The person behind this probably has it framed somewhere in their home.

The mom who sent this birthday card is a national treasure.

The font is Comic Sans. Repeat: the font is Comic Sans.  There is nothing else that needs to be said.

Do you think the person behind this isn’t a Katy Perry fan?

Reading this sign also seems dangerous when driving. But thanks for the reminder that none of us are fireworks.

Dads are good at texting, too.

We should all start using SYSIH. “See You Soon I’m Happy” is just the loveliest acronym. Believe it or not, there are plenty more ridiculous fails.

#This #Ice #Cream #Is #Yummy #AF.

You know what’s cooler than hashtagging something? Spelling out the word “hashtag” before the thing you’re trying to hashtag. Hashtag cool.

Lit is over. RIP.

  via Twitter  

None of us can ever use the word lit again because of this horrendous tweet. RIP “lit” – you were (mostly) good to us.

When a reaction pic goes too far.

Drawing a reaction pic with chalk is a new level of internet imitating reality. Are we going to start dreaming in memes and reaction pics soon?

Chuck E. Cheese has snapped.

Someone get this wild mouse. He can’t be stopped. The adult behind this Twitter account thinks they are very, very clever.

The crying emoji strikes again.

We’d love to be a fly on the wall in the marketing meeting that happened to get this end result. “More emojis! NOW!” Share this with a friend who could use a good laugh!
