Today, I finally summoned the courage to ask my dad to pay me as he promised, after I cut the lawn and cleaned all the house windows last week. His response was, "Get fucked." FML

Well, go get ******. In his bed.

so I'm guessing you didn't get paid.... sorry OP

Your father did pay you OP. He paid you in motivation.

Motivation to go get laid perhaps. It's in the dad's words people!!

Get laid not paid! But I suppose if you could do both...

His dad probably lets his kid live under his roof for free. In my household, we called these 'chores' and didn't get paid for doing things like mowing the lawn. Kids are so ungrateful these days.

Knock him out with a frying pan :) then he'll have to pay a hospital bill. See how he likes that :P

Some kids get allowances and it's not a new concept. I've never been paid to do chores but it doesn't teach them to be ungrateful; it teaches them to work for their money. Don't judge.

I always got allowance before I got a job. But I did and continue to do chores because I'm a member of the household and I have an obligation to pitch in.

85- the dad also promised. The dad is teaching his kid that they don't have to stand by their word basically. The dad is just a manipulating liar really.

Wait... What? The solution is to have sex in his bed. I can think of more creative and cruel ways.

2 - I doubt the solution is less self esteem and potentially causing a murder. I once had a very good friend with an abusive father. He walked in on me touching her shoulder platonically and stuck a .22 revolver in my face. Keeping my wits, and 16 year old understanding of the permanence of life, about me, I smartassed my way out the door and out of vomiting in terror. Perhaps OP's dad isn't abusive but, "Get ******" sounds pretty openly hostile. Good advice over. Go with 2's suggestion.

68 sounds like you need to take some ninja classes my friend! Turn that gun around on him!

And this is why i hate parents

82 - Even now that I'm trained to do that kind of shit, I still realize its dumb as hell to try when it costs you nothing to walk away. If I was still enlisted, would I do it for the mission? Hell yes, and I'd feel like a ninja.

#140 OP's dad did sth wrong, by not keeping his promise to pay her, but it's not a reason to hate him. Do you realize how hard parents work for their children ? Waking up in the middle of the night when they're babies, giving them baths and getting them dressed, paying for all the things they need, etc. Actually, I think OP's dad was wrong to offer to pay her. You shouldn't need to pay your kids in order for them to help around the house.

If a parent says they will do something they should do it. It's called setting a good example about keeping your promises. Just because you're the parent doesn't mean you get to be a hypocrite.

Nobody wants to go to prison for shooting someone in the face. you should have told him to shoot you, no one will. People flash guns like they bluff in poker.

153- yeah, because there is absolutely no gun violence... anywhere.....

Krajjan 9

161 - My thoughts exactly. I've been shot at. I am in no hurry to experience that again if I can help it.

He can pay for his own nursing home with the money he didn't give OP. haha.

I know his dad told him he would but I hate when kids expect payment for chores. Your parents pay for everything for you to keep you alive. You can't just cut the lawn or take the trash out for free?

Teaching your kids to expect somethjng after a job well done, is the best way to show them why a full time job is neecassary, that $10 a week for chores shows them that working lets them have things they want not just things they need to live. Otherwise tey will never move out or get a good job because there is nothing in it for them. Every one is slightly greedy it is what makes us do things.

Great parenting Not sure but I think he might have insinuated to get paid be prostitution. A+ OP's dad

What if Op doesn't have a mom? What if she died or he has two dads or something like that?

Or...what if he does have a mom...they're all viable options.

I'm sorry OP. At least now you know not to do your dad anymore favors.

Really? I find it normal to mow the lawn and help out in the house without getting paid for it.

And how is OP supposed to earn money 93 hmmmmm (and learn the value of a dollar?) of course OP could just take the money out of his wallet :)

97- Holy shit. There are other honest ways to make money you know.

I asked my dad for money in return for chores. He showed me how much I cost a month. I owe him a shitload more chores.

The problem 93 is that he agreed to pay her for her work. She earned her pay. When she asked for it he told her he wouldn't pay in probably the most hostile way possible. That isn't the way a decent person or parent acts. If there was no payment agreed on and she made an assumption she'd be paid your point would stand. However, this doesn't seem to be the case.

klovemachine 24

It doesn't matter whether or not he promised to pay her, he shouldn't talk to her like that :(

It's usually mom know best so clearly dad doesn't.

#34_Is your profile pic a POWERPUFF girl!?!?!?!?!

SApprentice 34

63- Of course that's not a Powerpuff Girl. That's Mandy, from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

Thats mandy actually...get your shit together man

#67_Yikes! Please forgive me. Its been a long time since Wanky Dog watched The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. Too busy watching Mr. Krabs in Bikini Bottom.

Did you just spell your own screen name wrong?

I feel you're pain. I hate when people do that, sorry OP

Just slowly siphon the cash from him bit by bit (subtly) until you have fair compensation. He probably wouldn't notice if he didn't notice all the hard work you did for him last week

Steve95401 49

OP has been siphoning money from the First National Bank of Mom & Dad since the day she was born. Food, clothing, doctor bills, not to mention college, aren't free. Doing a few chores around home is a fair trade off.

SApprentice 34

66- Yes, it's true that doing a few chores is expected, but in this case OP's father promised to pay her for the work, and not only went back on that promise, but spat a hostile remark at her when she brought it up to him. That's bad parenting. It just teaches your kids that everyone is out to **** them over, and that they should never put in any effort into jobs because the people with authority over them are just going to jerk the reward that they have worked towards out from under them as soon as the work is done. I do agree, however, that OP shouldn't steal money from her father in retaliation. One wrong doesn't fix another one.

Unless OP is a brat and won't do anything anyways. Op may only do things when money is involved. Maybe Op is a saint, who knows.

Getting ****** is a pretty good payment. Take it.
