And, y'know, just in case you think your dad is embarrassing...



LOL. Love you, Dad...just please don't sing at the top of your voice with your headphones on

I'd give many things just to see my dad being embarrasing, singing silly songs at the top of his voice and trying to reach out to me with the most goofy conversations. He passed four years ago, so I just keep it all in my memories now. It was really nice and sweet of him, even if I sometimes felt embarrased as a teenager, but now I miss it all. Appreciate your parents - being a tad strange is just what adds to their personalities.

I agree, he probably just wants appreciation.

I would never say "yeah" or "okay" to my dad if he was showing me things he bought for me, I find it disrespectful.

Be thankful, give your dad some appreciation. There's some people that would be at your dad's feet crying and thanking him for something so simple.

I know - and I'm so sorry about your dad! My partner lost both his parents when he was young. It's been around 20 years and he still misses them terribly

Parents are wonderful (nearly all of them anyway) and we probably don't appreciate them enough. I try and visit every weekend because I've lost a few people and had failed to visit them before they passed away, and really regret it.

Yeah, I try to visit my mom often and be kinder to her now, although we have some heavy relationship issues, but she is still my mom and wishes me no harm. I know that almost every teenager goes through the "my parents are so stupid/embarrasing!" phase, but I'd like to hope that under all that spunk there is still appreciation for what our parents do - and often sacrifice - for us.

I do some of these things :(

When I buy things, especially if I have a good deal, I have an impulsive desire to share it with someone. But that's why I choose to hang around people, to share lives with them. Why else bother living/talking with people?

I also ask pointless questions that I know the answer to. Most questions I ask I know the answers to.

Agreed. My brothers and I lost our father, and my mother her husband of 60 years last July. What I wouldn't give to hear him ask me silly questions, or show me all the bargains he got at the store again.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
