    I Feel Like I'm A Disappointment

    When I was a bit younger, I started taking Saxophone lessons, purely for the fact that I thought it would please my father. I saved up my money and paid half the cost of a second-hand Saxophone (My mum paid the other half) so I could practice at home. I did practice hard...

    Dad's Temper

    My dad has a crazy temper- he'd yell in his loudest and shrillest voice when mad. When I was a kid, I would always liken it to what I would imagine the devil to sound like.. and he would go on and on for maybe even hours- much like a man who is punching and punching until he...

    I Do Not Like My Father

    It feels weird saying that, but it's just the truth. He acts like he's the best father in the world, and tries to make me feel guilty anytime I disagree. The thing is that he had horrible parents, so he believes that he is amazing just because he's not as cruel with me as his...

    My Dad's Not Responsible

    My Dad probably never heard the word "responsibilities". He's not responsible of us kids once we're over 21. Like when Hurricane Rita hit my sister's home. He didn't bother rescuing her and her two young girls! After I found out my sister had to call our step-mom for help. She...

    Scumbag

    Long story short, I'm not fond of my father for a few good reasons. One, he never did anything to take care of his family. All he did was sit on his *** all day bitching about how bad he has it while my mom did everything she could to feed us, pay the bills, and so forth. What's...

    Dad

    My father was the authoritarian and disciplinarian of the house.  There are a lot of kids in my family, and dad just didn't have the time or patience to get to know us as individuals.  He was quick to lose his temper, and he would shout in a booming, angry voice that...
