If you're a dad, chances are you're getting some ties, socks and, if you're lucky, a sweet "No. 1 Dad" mug this Sunday. But what do you REALLY want? According to dads on the Internet, the wish list is pretty simple.
According to dads on Reddit, here's what they really want this Father's Day:
Don't be a 'Father's Day Skimper' -- defined (by me) as of one the 77% of Americans who spend more, and pay more attention to moms than dads on their day. Besides, dad is easy to please. Quality time with the family (dinner, grilling, outing) is what he wants most, but get him something nice anyway.
Good ol' dad. You wouldn't exist if not for him. But that's not all that makes dads great. Let's not forget their penchant for terrible jokes. Combine that with technology, and you've got some text treasures on your hands. Here's just a smattering of ridiculous dad texts to honor dads for Father's Day.
This Father's Day, dad doesn't want a fancy cocktail created by some ironically mustachioed mixologist wearing armbands and smelling of patchouli oil. He wants a man's drink. A drink that's mostly booze.
We're not here to tell you how to run your life. We're mostly just here to provide you with cute pictures of kittens and GIFs you might like. But, if we could make a suggestion, don't get your dad any of these things for Father's Day.
If only Dad was a cool as Tim Taylor, as understanding as Ward Cleaver and as loving as Cliff Huxtable. Oh, what a wonderful world that would be. But, in reality, we know Dad is a little more like Peter Griffin, Al Bundy and Red Foreman.
Sure, your dad saidhe didn't want anything for Father's Day, but that might also have been a not-so-subtle hint that, thanks to the last several holidays, he has quite enough ties and golf balls, thank you.
