When my dad was 75, I took him to Hooter's for Father's Day. It was the first time he'd been there. Afterwards, he looked at me very seriously and said, "Why have you kept this from me? Didn't I raise you better than that?"

There's only 2 restaurants I eat at on that list, and I probably won't be going to either of them, but I appreciate the effort to put it together.

I'm here at home helping my mom cook shish-kebobs for my dad. I feel so manly right now.

This weekend has been a matter of eating well without paying extra for food prep/service. Afternoon cheese & crackers and live musice at a vineyard yesterday.  My daughter's favorite - oven grilled salmon for dinner. I defrosted the two little boneless pork shoulders (piglet shoulders?) and dry rubbed them last night. Braised in the oven this morning and finishing on the smoker along with grilled baby portabello caps w/ beer and cake for dessert. So what if I had to do the bulk of the cooking/dishes. I got good food and a good family to enjoy it with - and I get to go out tonight for Open Mic.

Wings?  Meh, I'm a breast man, myself.

But fark Hooters.

Yeah, I'd rather grill a nice steak and baked potato, which I am in the process of doing right now.

I have a slipped disc and my wife just left for a business trip. Tomorrow is my kid's last day of school (half day). Every evening this week is rehearsals for her dance recital.

I can stand and walk slowly. Or lie down. If I sit for more than a few minutes my body freezes up at a 90 degree angle.

Yey.

My dad worked R&D for IBM from the '60s through the '80s. There's a good chance he may have helped inventinternet porn.

A Maryland-style crab stew (made yesterday and better today) and a spinach-arugula (I'm uppity like that) salad for me tonight.

My father is no longer with us.

I have been slow cooking a rack of ribs for the last 6 hours (5 hours at 175, just raised it to 225 to finish), almost done.

Here's to you dad!!!

Grilling burgers and corn for my husband tonight but he  has been promised an anchovie pizza which is to be ordered and delivered when no one else is home. It's stinky but anything for the Big Daddy.

that sucks, I call my step dad and my dad's gf every year for father and Mother's Day, I don't think my step dad cares but I know it makes my dad's gf's day since she has no kids.

I'd call you but I don't have your number and well, it would just be kind of creepy.

/Happy Father's Day Ogremagi :)

When I managed a small mom-and-pop Pizzeria everyone in the building  wanted to clear out about once every 3 or 4 weeks because we had one customer that would order anchovies.  We literally just had the One customer but we always kept two cans on hand knowing that he calls to order once or twice a month.

Amazingly, I never had complaints from other customers that had pies in the oven concurrently with his.  That smell is pervasive.

My dad wasn't necessarily an asshole, but I have very few memories of us doing stuff together.
On weekends he was more into yard work, and week nights the family watched TV together, but he chose.

/ I know that's why I semi-overcompensate with my 12-year old son.
// I want him to know that I love him and desire his company.
/// Hopefully in 20 years when he has a fark account he'll say something good about me.

Due to scheduling of camps and such, my husband is spending last Friday through this Tuesday alone. Probably the best present he ever had.

I did facetiously buy him a Hooters gift card and said to take his dad on the card. I sent my teenager son in to buy it and he came out grinning ear to ear.

Firehouse Subs is pretty good eating.  Kind of want right now.

But McDonalds, only 5:30-10:30am??  What's the point?
 
2017-06-18 06:10:24 PM  
I'm not falling for this again.

I go back to Hooters and it's all "dead beat" this, and "child support" that.

No thank you.

Bummer. Back pain sucks.

Omg, I love Fathers' Day now. Lately my family has been so "You're mentally ill, so you shouldn't drink." But today they're like, "I'm glad you're having a good time and helping even though you hate your dad"

no judging

/I drink to hide the pain.
//What doesn't alcohol fix?

If Hooters is the noteworthy establishment on a list of 100 eateries, that would explain why they're all giving their stuff away.

I call my dad and say how's it going, what have you caught lately , that's the best He's going to get. It's a made up holiday, as they all are. I owe my dad the world, but I don't need a specific day to  tell him this

Vent venue...hmmm.

Okay, ignore me.  Please move on because I'll get over it as it doesn't matter in the long term.

My wife abandoned her daughter when I found my kidnapped daughter that she "supported" me finding since we met.  I have raised both girls alone since then and even had to teach puberty to my youngest.  While dealing with an emotionally challenged teenager (16 years of being captive does that to a person), I had to teach another how to be a woman.  I have had no friends and no romantic possibilities because I am a nice person in a cruel area.  But my children have thrived.  Both my girls are more than ready for life.  The 17 year old is in the 5th percentile of her class, about to graduate and scholarships are being thrown at her.  The 24 year old has been in three blockbuster movies, shift leader at every place she worked and has made many contacts to further her new career.

So...I know I'm a good father.  I know I've done well under the circumstances.

But I have nobody, absolutely nobody anywhere who appreciates what I have done.  I am despondent.

There.  I've vented.  They'll be fine but my life has been over for 6 years.

Happy Father's day.

Maybe I'm in a horrible mood because I'm at work, maybe I'm more resentful than normal that everyone else is enjoying another day and I have to work, but these things irritate the piss out of me.  It's self-congratulatory bs as far as I've seen.  You post a picture of dad and say how great he is, and he does the same for you.  Because everyone is a "great" dad, or the "best" or on and on.  Guess what?  They aren't all great.  In fact if I were to guess I'd say most aren't.  If the world is filled with such "great" dads, how come the world is so farked up?  So to you that are genuinely great dads, good job, but instead of glorying in it, how about helping out someone who needs it?  Show those kids why you're a great dad.  To those that are just doing the best they can, maybe you'll get better.  Just keep trying.  And to all the deadbeats.  Fark off and DIAF.

I'm sorry. You're clearly hurting a great deal, and I don't want to add to your pain, but sacrificing for your children with no expectation of appreciation or reward is the very essence of being a good father.

You know what you've done. Isn't that all that matters?

Good dads do a lot of crap they don't like, but do it anyway because that's what dads do.  Letting the dad have what he wants despite everyone else hating it is what the day is all about.  Kudos.

That's why i'll get over it.  But aren't I allowed to feel emotional pain sometimes, too?  That's why they think I don't need anything...people tell the man, "Don't feel that way, feel better, don't show emotion," then they never get help and then they...well, they don't do so well necessarily.

Am I not able to feel despondent because I do know what I have done and it just doesn't seem to matter?  If I am not allowed to feel, then why am I called human?
 
2017-06-18 09:38:03 PM  
Why post this list at 5PM today when Fathers' Day is almost over?

Why not post in on, say, Wednesday, a day after it was published?
