I am starting to think that there are a legion of fellas out there who need some ‘lessons’ in being a dad.
And by ‘lessons’, I mean ‘good old fashion country ass-whoopin’, to be precise.
The latest guy to qualify comes to my attention via an article over on newsone.com.
It seems that an unidentified father has just recently posted a picture of his toddler daughter on the internet site Reddit.com in which he attempts to shame her for pooping in the shower by making her wear an embarrassing sign.
The sign reads, and I kid you not:
I pooped in the shower and daddy had to clean it up. I hereby sign this as permission to use in my yearbook senior year.’
Then he had the kid sign the thing, took her picture, and posted it for the world to see. He didn’t blur her face in the photo. He just put it out there in cyberspace.
It makes me sad and pissed off to know that there are indeed people like this, parents who really have no sense of what is right or wrong when it comes to disciplining little kids or just trying to teach them stuff. Even if the dude wasn’t trying to intentionally hurt his child, it still sets off massive alarm bells in a way, because it shines a light on just how damn clueless some people really are.
For what it’s worth, I hope they are never found out, this dad and his daughter. I hope they remain anonymous and she grows up never even recalling that this happened at all.
But even if that happens, you have to wonder: how long before an idiot like this guy strikes again?
Because, sadly, idiots are forever.
