Deadbeat Dads Who Are Still Better Than Your Shitty Dad
Father’s Day is a wonderful holiday invented by Hallmark to sell more greeting cards to make your dad feel extra special and loved. But let’s be real. Not everybody’s dad is Father’s Day card material. They don’t call them “daddy issues” for nothin’, honey. As much as these fictional dads suck, they still probably don’t suck as bad as your deadbeat dad who left for a pack of cigarettes in the middle of the night and never came back. Or maybe you had the kind of dad who left your mom for a stewardess with a nice rack on a return flight from Vegas. Or maybe he used to smack you around with the buckle end of his belt and called it “character building.” Maybe he was always late on his child support payments, or maybe he still pops into your life every few years just to ask for money to take to the race tracks. Whatever the case is, your dad sounds like he sucks, and he probably sucks more than these dads. Cheer up though! You’re totally justified to drink a whole bottle of whiskey and call your therapist crying after reading this list. Just don’t try to patch things up with your dad. He doesn’t deserve your love.
