I Hate My Dad

    I really need to get this off my chest.

    My dad and I used to be close. Throughout the years he's always cheated on my mom every year around February. As I got older I started to understand everything. Last year I told him if he cheated again, I'd be done with him. And he did it again. He blames my mom like always...

    Although I don't always hate my dad,

    the only way I can describe what he is like is he is a teaser. He will give me something for helping him or doing well at school or whatever and then a few weeks or even days later, because I've made a silly mistake or forgotten to do something, he'll take it away or sell it on...

    I mean I don't hate him.

    ... But I don't love him either. My dad works hard for us. He's the only income maker in the family. He has to support four people and himself. That makes five. He tries to give us the things we want. But he doesn't at the same time. Does that make sense? My parents, I don't...

    I hate how my dad gambles.

    He goes every night almost to the Boats (casino) and he makes me watch the kids. Then his wife (who I hate more then anything) gets mad at me because my step brothers aren't supposed to do this or that, but they do any way. And the only time my dad talks to me is when we fight...

    He says he loves us but all he does is work.

    We all hate him so much that our mother pretends to abuse us when he's home. She's a really great mother. What makes me hate him more is that he's dating a girl younger than me.

    He always believes the worst of me.

    He hates me and is always pushing me. If my siblings have done something wrong, it always comes back to me because I'm the oldest. He always expects too much and I hate that. I can't be everything that he wants me to be.

    Possibly my least favourite guy in the world.

    Recently, he's been sucking up and buying me things. I don't give a sh*t about his gifts. Quite honestly, if he gave me a million, I'd shape it into a rock and throw it to his face. He's been absent since I was like 1 and I'm 21 now. I've moved from place to place because of...
