now this is crazy talk

so yahoo says now that those tacky handmade mugs we all were forced to make in 2nd grade are not what dad wants on fathers day. nor does he want a shirt that says hes the best dad... infact it says i should shell out on a new gadget for him.

yahoo, has not met my father! he still wears the worlds best dad sweat shirt from like 1989 xmas. heck he would still wear his booty cut shorts if i hadnt made fun of them and put them on to ask if i could walk out the house in them, i was told no.

that ugly mug i made in 2nd grade his pens are in it. the one i made in 5th grade well thats on the coffee table. the amazing painting i made him well that i dunno where it is. though yahoo is all wrong. as king lard a** loves the really lame gifts i get him for fathers day.

infact for his bday i got his cake and had it say happy bday lard a**! he made a joke of it and said the guy spelled lord wrong.

enough about my dad, what did you all get your dad? i still gotta buy mine something.

I got my dad a Blackhawks Stanley Cups Champions shirt that will probably not be really worn. He has a bunch of championship shirts, like all the Bulls championships during the Jordan era, a Bears Super Bowl shirt, etc. lol

I have no idea what I'm getting for my dad (or dad-in-law, for that matter). My dad is one of the most impossible men to buy gifts for. Christmas, birthdays, doesn't matter - it's always "I don't know," or "I'll think on it," without any real answer.

I know I got him a gift last year for either Dad-day or his birthday - don't remember which. It was a little 6-piece utility tool, fashioned like a Swiss Army knife, for his golf set. (I'd thought about getting him a new golf glove, but that got nixed when I realized I had no clue what size he needed.) And he absolutely LOVES it. He couldn't stop playing with it after he opened it. One of the little gidgits on it is a magnetic dot that can be removed and used as a turf marker - he had a blast just popping it on and off the base of the tool. I never knew my dad was so easily amused, *lol*

I saw this earlier and it made me sad.
My dad loved all of those things, or at least he said he did. They're still around so it's not a big deal.

I'm making him beer bottle cap magnets. He collects them like no other, and has too many doubles anyway.

My dad still has every crappy little thing I have ever made from him that hasn't reasonably deteriorated with time.

I got my dad a grill. Daddy is the type of person who will grill in fair weather or foul, so I got him a pretty good one.

His old one, one of the ancient "oil-can" models, was pretty much on it's last legs--there was a hole burnt through the bottom that had a bad case of rust, and the cooking grate was held together in more than one place with pieces of wire coat hanger. It was a sad grill monster.

I wanted his gift to be a surprise, and for him to get it in time to use it for Father's Day, so I bought it online (awesome sale and free shipping) and had the package sent to his house in my name. I tracked it all the way to his door, then waited for him to call me when the FedEx guy showed up to his door. He was so happy! :lol:

my dad comes up with any excuse to NOT touch his grill... he even replaced it with a really nice newer one a few years ago as the thing before was older than me... he has told my mom a few good excuses, 'wheres the brush to clean it with?' 'what about my sauce recipe book' 'i dont have any propane' 'its not clean yet' 'did you ever find the brush to clean it with??'

finally my mom found everything on his excuse list and just sat it out on the table. now hes got no excuse other than 'im just too tired'

im going to get dad a gift tomorrow if i dont get distracted and go to the dog store instead and get size info on this dress i want to my puppy for when i go pick her up in 6 weeks.

my daddy loves his homemade gifts too!!

This year i didnt really get him anything. However I am taking him to the Mayhem Festival at the end of July so im kind of counting that as his fathers day gift.

I wanted to get him a Toews jersey but some jerkoff (dave) at work took it off hold and put it back on the sales floor. It sold by the time I came into work for my shift that day.

i know where you can get an unlicensed one before sunday, but its not licensed so its not as good as the real ones.
i remember when someone jacked my jeans and sold them to someone else after i had them in my hold bag fully paid for and all too!! worst part the jeas were no longer in production and they only had a size bigger or 3 sizes smaller... i tried the size bigger and it didnt work so i was not only pissed off but i was also back to not owning skinny jeans and well there was a jean jacker at the place too!

Yeah its not the same. Hes gotta have a real one :-D lol

That sucks about your jeans. Id be absolutely furious if someone did that to me, especially after I paid for them. I was already pissed off as it was about the jersey and i hadnt even paid for that yet

My dad's impossible to buy for. But he did wear the shirts my brother and I bought him last year a few months after we gave them to him, so meh.

This year, I decided to get him a Menards gift card, something I KNOW he'll use. It's lame, but it's better than nothing.

My dad is like me, you don't have to get anything. we're going to make some steaks out on the grill for him, get him a card and my "step grandma" thinks that she needs to get him a gift, so she got him something that checks the propane left on the tanks. I don't think he has one, but everything else he does.

Wow, I feel like a loser now. All we do in my family for Father's Day (or Mother's Day) is give cards. I always try to find a funny card of course but the only reason I gave my Dad something for Father's Day when I was younger was because we would make it during school. Since we got too old to make Father's Day gifts, all I do is give him a card.

To be fair, my dad is always pleasantly surprised whenever my sister and I give him gifts for Father's Day. He doesn't expect us to give him anything beyond a visit/phone call and a card. (Same with Mother's Day - which is fun every year, since Mom knows I go to Acen, and is always thrilled when I give her a call to say Happy Mom's Day.)

Which actually makes it easier for us, because that way we don't have to worry about what to buy. He is a man of selective taste. I just lucked out on that golf utility tool, *lol*

I got my father Smokey Mountain Taffy (which is the best taffy you will ever have) and District 9 on Blueray.
My family makes these fancy things on amazon.com called a wishlist. 8D
So you always know what the other wants.

He has also kept all of those things my sister and I made when we were kids. No matter what we give him, he'll like it. That's why I love my dad. (And he's the one who takes me to ACen! So he's extremely awesome.)

Oh God I honestly really hate these types of holidays. Father's Day and Mother's Day should be small holidays mostly for families to slow down and actually spend time together for a change, not yet another huge consumerism celebration (Don't get me wrong; some people want to go all out and that's cool, but I don't like how people often feel pressured to). Mom got a porch swing for dad this year (which actually kind of irritated me that she felt like she *had* to do it this year because we're trying to save up for a vacation to Florida for the three of us and we've literally never been on a family vacation, but it seems like she's trying to do whatever she can to sabotage it. I'm just being silly, but this is really important to me and if I get screwed out of it I will be livid -- what would one more year have hurt?), but usually it doesn't go beyond cards and maybe dinner and/or a small (~$20) gift for either holiday. Christmas and their birthdays is enough for going all out.

This article is a bit ridiculous IMO, specifically in complaining about home made gifts. Some of us just don't have the cash to go buy our dads some fancy electronic device or whatever it seems to think we should do.

my daddy could get an upgrade on his cellphone which would be free but then theres all those hidden fees. and i would do that for him but, no job no money... and i dont think he wants an upgrade as hes had the same phone for 5 years now.

im working on my master piece shirt for him right now, well after this movie is over and i find my markers.

I wanted to get a card for my boyfriend's dad, but a card for a boyfriend/girlfriend's dad doesn't exist and it would be awkward if I got him a father-in-law card.

This is the reason why my boyfriend didn't get a card for my mom or dad. lol

My mom bought my dad clothes because he doesn't really have any fashion sense. lol
