The 10 Best (and Worst) Things Dads do to Embarrass Us

The 10 Best (and Worst) Things Dads do to Embarrass Us

fathers day

They’re too honest with their kid’s friends:

“I ran into my friend’s Dad the other day and he asked, ‘have you heard from Mike recently?’
‘No,’ I said.
‘Yeah,’ he responded. ‘I heard he blew it with you.”
Brittany, 22

They don’t know how to act in public:

“We were out to lunch on a hot summer day once, and when the waiter came over and asked us if we’d like anything to drink, my Dad said, ‘yes, we’d like all your water. We’re really thirsty. We’re camels.”
Matthew, 24

They love Dad jokes:

“Son: Where are my sunglasses?
Dad: I don’t know… where are my dadglasses?”

They don’t know how to behave at McDonalds:

“After we received our food, somehow they messed up our order.
My Brother: Dad, they gave me McChickens instead of McDoubles.
Dad: Looks like they made a McSteak.”

They were young and crazy once too:

“We decided to grab a bite at the [mall] food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors – green, red, orange, and blue.
My Dad kept staring at her. The teenager kept looking and would find my Dad staring every time. When the teenager had had enough, she sarcastically asked, ‘What’s the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?’
Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have a good one! In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid:
‘Got stoned once and screwed a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my daughter.’ ”

They’re way too proud of us

“I got an internship with my Dad’s company. My office was in a different department from where he works. On my first day he poked his head in the door and shouted across the room, ‘that’s my little girl! Make me proud hun.’
So much for keeping it in the bag that my Dad works for the company.”
-Jess, 21

They like to plan for the future:

“My dad is getting his voicebox removed on Friday and he’s in the process of recording useful phrases onto his smartphone so that he can communicate verbally before he can use any speech aids, like ‘I’m in pain’ or ‘Please bring me water.’ One of the phrases my dad recorded for his first follow-up visit with the doctor is ‘I think I’m losing my voice!’ ”

They’re extremely accepting of their age and poor eyesight:

They like to tell the same joke too many times:

“As a kid, whenever I’d ask my Dad, ‘what’s for dinner?’ he’d consistently respond by saying, ‘close your eyes. What do you see?’
Everytime! Ever. Single. Time.”
Rachel, 21

And they know how majestically pair baseball with Normcore:

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there! We know you don’t mean it. You’re just being your joke-cracking, normcore-wearing, pun-loving self. But um…next time, could you maybe be a little bit less of yourself.
