What Dads REALLY Want For Father’s Day
If you're a dad, chances are you're getting some ties, socks and, if you're lucky, a sweet "No. 1 Dad" mug this Sunday. But what do you REALLY want? According to dads on the Internet, the wish list is pretty simple.
According to dads on Reddit, here's what they really want this Father's Day:
The number one request from the online dads was a day to sleep in, preferably in silence.
Multiple dad's echoed the desire to have a day with video games and TV watching uninterrupted, and without having to share the controller or remote.
Pretty straight-forward with no surprises on this one.
Dads want power tools, and some time left alone without meddling kids to use them!
Dad wants to spend some time on the golf course, perhaps breaking in some new clubs or balls?
Give your Dad some well-deserved rest, some beer and a nice hammock to enjoy them in.
One dad wrote, "I have had epic naps with my wife and my kids in my hammock. Some of the most peaceful moments of my life have been spent in a hammock. I bought my first hammock at LL Bean in Maine on my honeymoon in 1992. That hammock was repurposed as a replacement hockey net. My current hammock is 5 years old and ready to be replaced. Can't wait for Father's Day this year!"
Dad wants a day off from the sound of the vacuum, lawnmower, blaring One Direction and most importantly, kids whining and fighting with each other.
The dads listed a variety of Father's Day food wishes, from steak, to cheeseburgers, to barbecue, to giant sandwiches, to burritos, to bacon. All we know is that we're pretty sure Dad wants meat. And a lot of it.
Not all that surprisingly, a large number of the dads said what they really want this Father's Day is to spend some quality time with their little ones.
