Five things you definitely shouldn't tell your dad this Fathers' Day
This Fathers' Day make it extra special for your dads and don't tell them these things for sure
Fathers come in all shapes and sizes, however, there’s one thing common in all our fathers (well, the majority of them, anyway) that everyone agrees to. And that’s their bigger-than-the-world hearts!
There’s another thing about most of our dads: Their love for us is like an undercover mission. They keep performing tasks secretly, which ensure that we are ultimately loved, do well in whatever we aim to do, we make no mistakes and we are happy, but it’s all done like some spy with a hidden identity. As far as dads are concerned, love = top secret, basically!
Speaking of undercover missions, we don't fall too far behind our dads in that genre. Yes, all of you will get this right, come on! We all, as children as well as adults, have done something, which should never come out in the open, especially not in front of our fathers!
While we need to respect the fact that our dads love us unconditionally and they will forgive us for anything (now if you haven't killed someone, god help you then), showing some extra care on a day dedicated to our dear fathers is a great way to get started. So, on this fathers' day let's make it happier for all the fathers out there.
Do not say these things in front of your dads, especially not on fathers' day!
Dad, I drank some imported whiskey from your collection and very conveniently poured water into it (mind it the perfect amount) to make it look like it has not been touched
Every child has done this at some point in their lives, so has Saunak Chakraborty from Kolkata. He says "I couldn't sleep that day until I knew for sure that dad didn't realise his imported whiskey was almost half the amount. Thankfully he didn't, kudos to my dilution skills (laughs)."
Dad, I took your car out without your permission (because I had to show off to my friends), then it got scratched, but no worries, I fixed it, and you didn't even know
Sneha Singh from Gurgaon says "I have done this not once but several times when I was in college. Dad used to be out on tours and when mom was not home, I used to take his car. I have fixed the scratches and the car was as good as new. Not something to be proud of, but then once in while I pat on my own back."
Dad, I bunked mathematics tuition (more times than you are aware off) but, I passed with flying colours, didn't I?
Ask anyone, they would have done this. Bunking tuitions were a part and parcel of our lives when we were in school or college. We would still do it, even with the fear that there was a high probability that our teachers could call our father and say your son or daughter didn't turn up today.
Dad, I took your credit card to shop without telling you, please don't be mad I really needed that dress
Every girl's story. Controlling the urge to buy that specific dress or shoe, or makeup just didn't work out well. We ended up using our dad's credit card every time.
Dad will kill me if he knows that I forged his signature on the school diary. Oh come on, I was not creating a nuisance in school, it was just the teacher, who always picked me to punish out of the entire class
We were too young to know the consequences of forging the signature, it was all harmless fun, I promise. That's what every adult would say now, who has done this as a child. We wished our fathers didn't get to know, but they did later, sometime.
