Today, I asked my dad to please shave his awful beard, because I'm a laughing-stock at school for being picked up each day by a guy whose face looks like Bigfoot's ass. He agreed, and 10 minutes later was sporting a pedo-stache. It's going to be a long year. FML

Reply a thick pair of big 80's style glasses along with a Members Only jacket, and the conversion van from Napoleon Dynamite, then he'll have the classic pedophile look...

@75, Ikr? And it's not like he can really comment. Even if #20 killed it (Which in my opinion he didn't. I thought it was pretty lulzy.) , #66 killed their killed kill. And I am pretty sure I killed everything. And subsequently diverted the impending Zombie Apocalypse. I know. You're welcome.

@20, I mean, "technically" only at recess is when that's like, super creepy. Otherwise, I think it stays just at a mild-to-moderately disturbing level. Unless he has candy. Then it's just, All. F#%^ing. Over.

Exactly. He doesn't have to come and get her and why should she care so much? I've seen people who's parents are a lot more embarrassing then just a beard and they don't care at all.

I agree op, don't bother wasting your time caring what people think of your parents. Your dad is pretty awesome to come pick you up every day, and he sounds like an awesome & funny guy. You two sound like you have a good relationship, don't let what other people think ruin that. Plus, I doubt your friends even care or remember him 2 minutes after seeing him.
Thankfully I never went through the phase of being embarrassed by my parents, and I had no problem having them around or kissing & hugging them goodbye. Just be thankful you have such awesome caring parents around when so many other kids don't.

It sounds like the dad is doing it on purpose. It must be difficult if OP is shy and just wants to fit in if the father makes it a point to look ridiculous. And besides, walking home is not always an option.

You can't always walk back to school. My middle school was over an hours walk away with no sidewalk, and my elementary and high school were even further. Pairing that with Florida's horrible weather, you get a scenario where you depend on mom and dad.


That's quite the predicament you find yourself in.
No matter which way to go, you're screwed, figuratively of course.

Maybe you can compromise and only shave half your face... You might even start a new trend!

Actually 19, if he continues to shave the beard, he may have the opportunity to be screwed on the literal sense as well. I doubt that could happen if he keeps the beard though, due to certain legal complications.
