Dads are treasured members of society who deserve to be protected at all costs. They make us laugh with their quick wit and terrible jokes, and they always provide us with good content to tweet about.
These dad’s shared all their wisdom on Twitter, and whether you’re a dad or have heard it all from your own poppa, these are sure to hit home.
How To Put Sports In Perspective
Sometimes they like to make their priorities known, and in this case, the priority was to get home to watch a real baseball game rather than a little league game.
It Can Be Hard To Support Their Dreams
Your dad just wants to see you do well in life, and sometimes that means having to break those hard truths to you, like telling you that your band sucks.
They Have So Much To Teach Us
Dads are fountains of knowledge with endless wisdom to bestow upon their children, and this gem right here proves it. Lavender essential oil onion rings don’t exist for a reason, okay?
They Want You To Succeed Life
“Trust me on this one son, hide your flaws until after you finish your probationary period, then they can’t fire you.” That’s prime dad advice right there, and perfect for anyone just trying to get through their first big-time job.
Let’s Get #Dadvice Trending
Come on, you can’t expect your dad’s advice to be perfect every time. You win some, you lose some, and sometimes you lose one shoe, but at least you didn’t lose both!
Their Self-Confidence Is Through The Roof
One of the best parts about dads is that they understand their worth, and they won’t settle for anything less than they deserve. They’re truly an inspiration to us all.
Tell Us How You Really Feel Dad
A lot of dads are just big kids at heart, but with a better vocabulary (sometimes). They can tell you exactly what they’re feeling, which is not always a good thing.
Timing Is Everything
Comedic timing is not every dad’s strong suit, and sometimes they wildly misread the situation. On the other hand, they can wildly improve the situation. Unfortunately, dad’s don’t tend to know the difference.
They Don’t Have Commitment Issues
Dads understand how to find their bit and stick with it. Even if the joke sucks, if they repeat it for five years, you’ll eventually laugh. The goal is to wear you down over time.
Dads never fail to seize the opportunity for a solid joke. Never. Plus, you can’t help but laugh, which only adds more fuel to their fire. Did you know in Canada, milk actually comes in a bag?!
Don’t Follow Their Advice Exactly
Sometimes it feels like they might be testing you to see how dumb you actually are. It’s hard to tell if they’re joking or not, but you just have to take the risk.
Dads are practical beyond all belief. There’s no need to get emotional. There’s a time and a place for that, but that is not right now. Just pay up and move on with your life.
Get To The Point!
Dads don’t have time to coddle your feelings. Dads get straight to the point. They’re here to make you into a strong, independent woman whether you’re ready for it or not.
Sometimes, a dad’s parenting methods might seem a little unorthodox, but it’ll all work out in the end. The end justifies the means, right? You only turned out a little traumatized.
He Never Remembers The Right Name
Refusing to call things by their real name is another classic dad trope, whether it’s the name of your favorite snack or the name of your first boyfriend that he hated.
The Classic Dad Joke
If your dad doesn’t make this specific joke, does he even count as a dad? And no matter how many times he says it, he will always chuckle to himself.
Pop Culture Isn’t His Thing
When it comes to pop culture, they’re always just a little behind the times, or they can never remember the name of that one actor from the movie they watched that one time.
They Always Keep You Humble
Dads are put on this earth to keep their kids humble. They need to make sure you don’t get too big for your britches (which is something a dad would say.)
It’s Basically The Same Thing
They might be able to understand life’s major issues and questions, but when it comes to basic concepts, all reason goes out the window. This is why we need to protect them.
Back When I Was A Boy
Sometimes dads like to exaggerate for dramatic effect. They push the boundaries a little bit and see what they can get away with, but we love them anyway! We don’t deserve dads.
