Almost done

Today, it's my 17th birthday, and the first birthday since my mother died, leaving me to live with my previously-absent father. He gave me pretzels and a laser pointer, and said, "Happy birthday, fuckstick." One more year… FML

If my dad treated me like that I would emotionally destroy him, tell him that when he is on his deathbed and has nobody else to call because he is such a dick that you will not be there for him.

Yes, 79, because the solution to emotional distress and abandonment is to repeat it. Especially when people are dying.


Well apparently. But i wouldn't call this destroying kids. Destroying kids would be leaving a 3 year old home alone to take care of her 1 year old brother. Destroying kids is throwing them in a tub of boiling hot water. Destroying kids is turning off their heart monitor so they die because the beeping is annoying. Destroying kids is literally beating the life out of them or starving them to death. Not giving them an IPad or something for their birthday and calling them a not very insulting name is not destroying kids. Think about it.

You can choose your friends but not your family... Happy birthday, OP! Here's wishing you a happy birthday and a lot more to come! Hopefully your friends did something awesome for you! (:

He's obviously not mourning if he hadn't been with the mother the whole time, but I do agree on one thing: Shine the laser pointer in his eye!!! Then run like hell! If he doesn't like you he could become abusive.

That's indeed sad, OP. I know it's hard, but try not to hold grudges against him for that reason. He loves you, he just doesn't know how to show it like most people can.

Contrary to popular belief, being the biological parents of a human being does not equal love towards them. There is a difference between love and genetic material. This man could care about OP as much as he cares for any other random person, and this could just be showing his actual feelings towards OP.


#11 and #10 > What part of "absent father" and "Happy B-day fuckstick" didn't you understand? Looks like his dad doesn't care much about him. It's quite sad OP, hope you have some aunts and uncles who are not as emotionally retarded as your "dad".
