Many of us are obsessed with vintage stuff these days, from clothes to accessories to books. However, we forget that our dear old parents were the ones who started these cool trends.
Internet users from all over the world are sharing photos of their parents from when they where younger and proves they were a hundred times cooler than us.
My dad was a scrawny, nerdy type until his junior year of high school. Suddenly, he was tall and swarthy and “cool.” My mom was an all-around bad-ass. She hopped on the back of motorcycles and punched guys in the nose for coming on too strong. How do you not love hearing stuff like that about your parents? The best part is when your parents pull out pictures from their youth and you can see with your own two eyes how cool they were.
And sometimes you find yourself commiserating a bit, because you’ll never be as cool as they once were.
