I totally believe Jean Valjean is one of those dads who’s completely clueless about modern technology. He still thinks clap phones are cool and refuses to call the hotline because he thinks its a sex phone service or something.
He’s also the dad who spent three weeks texting.like.this. because he couldn’t find the space bar on his phone and who always ends his perfectly spelled texts with a period, unknowingly making them sound passive-aggressive.
And then he does embarrassing stuff like innocently sending wink emojis and asking why the eggplant emoji exists, bless his heart. At some point he starts calling Cosette “bae” and that’s when she draws the line.
“ ‘Bae’ doesn’t mean what you think it means, dad.”
“Doesn’t it mean Before Anyone Else?”
“It…. does, actually. I-Just don’t call me that. I know where you’re coming from but out of context it’s just weird.”
