Tell Us Something Weird About Your Kid

Published

on

The fun thing about kids is that they all have their own unique way of being so unapologetically weird. Especially when they’re very little and they have not yet been introduced to the concepts of self-consciousness or embarrassment, things like the following—shared by Reddit user u/Otterleigh—are normal and fun to them:

My 4yo went to the hairdresser today with her dad. Imagine my surprise when she returned home and immediately, enthusiastically, & proudly ran up to me to show off…. her bag of hair that she had brought home. To do crafts with. Apparently.

Ah, to be four and crafting with one’s own hair. Lucky for us, the weirdness doesn’t end there. Other Redditors could not help but jump in to discuss their own weird kids. Ages 4-5 seem to produce peak wonderful oddities:

  • “It’s cool, mine’s 5 and makes up heavy metal songs about the destruction of the universe which he proceeds to bellow out full force.”(u/Ioa_3k)
  • “The only way I could get my 4yo daughter to clean up her Sesame Street blocks was to pretend the basket was a tank full of sharks and have each of the Sesame Street characters beg for their lives as she tossed them in. I had to do impressions of all of them screaming and gurgling.” (u/Abidarthegreat)
  • “My 4 year old is currently dressed as the Magical Mr. Mistoffelees, but he’s secretly a Gibbering Mouther, who has changed form so he can spook Mazu and Rocky.” (u/CitizenKeen)
  • “My 5 yo summons spirits of the past centuries to help her 3 yo brother calm down with a meditation.” (u/pierre__poutine)
  • “A little while ago my daughter (5) said she was going to eat my flesh and bones to her heart’s content.” (u/MistressJubbs)
  • “I was clipping my 5yo’s toe nails. He likes when the clipper doesn’t clip it off all the way so he can pull it off and inspect it (I guess?). So I’m clipping and he excitedly pulls off the toe nail and yells, ‘Yes another one for my collection!’” (u/Oopsiedaisy55)
  • “My kid used to keep receipts and give them to people as gifts.” (u/harlsey)

I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you a weird thing about my own son, from around age 3-4. (This story is shared with his permission, as he remembers doing this and still thinks it’s pretty funny.) Whenever he’d go to the bathroom, I’d go in to help him, make sure he washed his hands, etc. When he was done, he’d pretend the door was locked and we were stuck inside. I’d have to “call a superhero” on my phone to come and help bust us out.

Refusing to role-play this scenario would only end in an epic meltdown from him, which was not worth it, so we did it every. single. time. Multiple times a day. For months, if not a full year.

Okay, your turn! Tell us in the comments: What’s a weird thing your kid does?

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
