Father's Day is a Joke and No One Is Laughing

Updated: Jun 25, 2019



Some people will feel I come across as bitter on this blog. Then there are others that will respect what I have to say. Let's take a look at Mother's day one month before father's day. The kids make cards, the husbands or father's give them money to get dresses up and go out. Almost every business offers some type of mother's day sale. Most restaurants and shows are booked up or sold out if you didn't reserve your spot weeks in advance. Everyone in the household gets together, to fix up the house plan a great home cooked meal or everyone has a gift to give mom. A bunch of mothers get together and go out for drinks, a brunch or a club depending on the group. Mothers usually get a baby sitter and spend their day without their children it's a break from kids for them.



This Is The Way Fathers Get Treated

Now let's take a look at fathers day. We get a tie or a watch and maybe a card. Most the fathers today have to plan their own day out. Which leads to a basketball tournament or a cookout unless they take themselves out. When was the last time you heard of a group of fathers all meeting up to go out for father's day? For some strange reason, it is a day that most people think fathers should spend with their children. All that say to me is you are not a full-time father and you need to spend time with your child. As far as the restaurant and shows are concerned there is never a wait or a line to get into these places. No one is taken fathers anywhere and if they do most of the time he ends of paying for everything. There are some women, wives and children that makes this day special for him can't overlook that. It's just no way compares to any other holidays for that matter. Even Labor day get more attention than father's day and half the people don't even know why that is a holiday. Fathers are not getting a bunch of discounts or offer on their day we get a Happy Father's Day and that's it. Please understand this is for the fathers that is there everyday not the ones that just had babies and left.


Thank You Marlon Randolph and Funnyman Kenny Ken for addressing this question:

Do you feel it is appropriate for your children or step kids to text you Happy Father's dad or should they are least give you the respect of picking up the phone. What time of the day should that call be made? Early morning, Morning, Afternoon, Evening, Night time, Or it's okay as long as it is before 12 am the next day?


Even The Song They Make Is Not About Us On Our Day

The purpose of this blog is not to say a woman shouldn't have all the praises they receive. We men just want some of the respect of having the child at the same time! We been here the whole time as well make our appreciation day just as you would mother's day.

I want to send a special shout out to the fathers I had in my life first my Biological Dad Richard Toxey (R.I.P) my first mentor, Carlton Poole (my stepdad), Uncle Ant (my favorite Uncle), Mr. Jones, Roscoe (who is still teaching me everyday).

What Now
Jul 16, 2019

Unfortunately, the few outweigh the many. There are way to many absentee fathers in the world, then those brothers who put there kids first and foremost. Even the cats that are superb fathers are just recognized as doing what there suppose to be doing anyway.  Plus normally the sacrifice and tribulations a lot of women go through raising kids seem to outshine anything good dads can do. I think if more dads took charge of the raising of the kids and more dads were present in there kids lives, totally. Then one day maybe Mother’s Day and Father’s Day would both share the spotlight. Maybe! (Written by Stephen Hewett)
