My boomer dad, whom I love, has very weird ideas about how work works

Me: 2 people just quit at my job
him: ah! So they're gonna promote you now?
Me: what, why would they do that? Now I just do 3 people's work
him: but they have to pay you more now?
Me:
him: what if they privatize the parks?
me: they did. concessionaires run most of them now. ask me how that's going
him: how's it going?
me: poorly. they take the state's money and leave the parks to rot
him: some politician should run for office on the platformof changing that
me: they'd get like one vote
him: I just think that if the people of this state knew how their parks were being run-
me: nobody cares, dad
Love my dad but I've been waiting all my life to tell him that nobody cares XD
my boomer mom, whom I love, does a lot of the same stuff. Her big idea is, whenever she encounters some inconvenience in daily life, that I should run for office to fix it.
Her: there aren't enough parking meters. you should run for city council and change that
me: ok mom
her: I know I would vote for you
me: yeah well I would hope so, you're my mom XD
Her: you should run for office
me: and what would my platform be?
her: [thinks]
her: you should run on a common sense platform
her: i don't think enough politicians have common sense
Boomers are weird, they're SO INTO this idea of "common sense" which doesn't even mean anything
Oh hey you should all follow the account, then you can hear me complain about my parents all the time lol
