My DH got a very expensive present from DS (which he DH paid for), a cake which the maid bought him (which he DH paid for) she doesn't know he hates cake, a crap card from the bottom of the drawer. And he couldn't give a F. He has gone to the office. Happy Father's Day daddy. Every year he says, "We never did it in our house, it is pointless." But every year we make a lame effort. And every year he cares about us even less. Will he even be around next year? Who knows. Or cares? Bitter much.

"I think it's time for your fil to step back and realise YOU'RE the daddy now, mate! YaDnbu!"
"This isn't a fil problem pal...it's a dw one. She needs to learn to put you first."
"My dw has treated me to a blowjob and booked a table at Screwfix. She might drop in on her df later of course, but just briefly. I am the sire of her offspring so I come first."

pictish . My partner has buggered orf to London, seeing his father. He's already giving his unborn child issues not being here.
Actually, kind of glad he's gone. He was getting far too mushy, thinking it would be 'cute' to get a father's day card from 'bump'. I mean, very glad he's so excited, but come on.....

I had to prod DH into action as he considers it a 'made-up' occasion. The DC, both male, had to be similarly pointed in the direction of the shops. My own DF is no longer with us, but he always liked Fathers Day and would have been disgruntled to find the day not appropriately marked.

Know what you mean but I think it's an unfair comparison. You see lots of women on here complaining because they get stuck with an unfair share of the housework and childcare, hope for a day off on Mother's Day, and then the DH heads off to go and honour the mother who so lifted and laid him as a child that he still thinks it's fine to throw a deaf ear to all the housework. I can see why they blow their tops on Mother's Day.

DP is at work, so will get his Father's day stuff later, as DS is away on a sleepover and it's didn't seem fair to leave DS out of the card/present giving.
I'm off to collect DS now, and with DD in tow we're going to visit my dad for a few minutes. DP's dad passed away a few years ago, or we'd have gone there too.

Lots of the women I know have put up Facebook posts about how great their OH's are as fathers.
I don't remember any of the men I know doing the same for their partners on Mother's Day.
Men are like tables or robots really aren't they? Thoughtless, and no feelings.

I saw my Dad yesterday and will see him again tomorrow (albeit very briefly both times) but I haven't seen him today.
We're not massive on Mother's / Father's day but I always make an effort to get them a card and a token gift for them on the morning. This year I made my Dad come and collect his own gift yesterday. My Dad rocks!
