I remember my teacher playing this my freshman year of highschool. I've never forgotten it since and it really made me appreciate my dad and how despite our differences, we love each other and have had great times together. Thanks for the feel

I've never cried listening to a song, until today. I mean actual tears down my eyes... that was intense

my dad was kind of the same way but we spent time together after work most days. Now he owns his own business and i'm his only employee. This song really gets him because my grandfather was always busy and never got to spend time with him until me and my dad both spent as much time as possible after he retired. He retired in 2011 a month before his wife died (on thanksgiving day), then we spent the rest of 2012 doing things. he left to live in florida in february and was there 2 weeks before developing leukemia and passing a few months later. A few years ago. my dad told me once after hearing this song that the main reason he spends as much time with me and my brother as possible is because of my grandfather and the childhood similarities to the song.

I've heard this song so many times, and I never really paid attention to the lyrics until now. That hit me hard.

So here I am, remembering my Dad playing this song for me when I was little and me saying "i'll always have time for my Dad".

Last time I had a real conversation with My father was 3 years ago.

Damn it omnipotentsoap this song hit me hard.

Talk to him, man. When the day comes that you no longer have the chance, you don't want it to come with any regrets.
#156 to #155 - anon (11/18/2013) [-]
Also no matter what may have come between you, it's worth giving it your all to make it better.

I think is the opossite. So much atention as the kid wanted would have turned him into an asshole. So they both did it wrong, not just the father, as it's shown

I don't think anyone is laughing we all know someone or have been that kid.
User avatar #25 to #15 - friendlyanon (11/18/2013) [-]
You think? I laughed, and i've been that kid. ANd i think that's precisely why i laughed.
We laught because we can relate to this, not because we find the situation funny.

we laugh cos your dick size

I know. Glorious, right?
I know. Glorious, right?
#122 to #119 - anon (11/18/2013) [-]
I assume you capitalized glorious because that's its name. Definitely not a descriptive term for your minuscule penis.
User avatar #124 to #122 - friendlyanon (11/18/2013) [-]
Ehm, i assume you didn't see the period after "I know".
That's what you do after a period. Capitalizing. See?

And now that i think about it: how do you know about my penis size? Did you talk to your mother?
sorry man that was low

Makes me extremely sad because I've pretty much had to raise my brother since he was 5 and hes starting to do bad in school and when ever I bring it up to my father he always has an excuse that he "works too much". Sad to think I may not be able to keep my brother from becoming a failure because excuses don't solve problems
User avatar #45 to #6 - roflnaut (11/18/2013) [-]
My parents have always spent the entire day working, so ever since my brother and sister were young, I have been the one taking care of them. I never had someone to ask for help. I just had to learn things on my own and pass them down to my siblings. I am just glad that things are better now.
Being the oldest, I never really got to enjoy being a kid. I had to assume responsibility and face reality at a young age.

I walk around my house terrified that something will go wrong and I'll have no idea what to do.
I scarcely drive my 93 Jeep because I'm terrified now that It'll break down (he was a mechanic) and ill be screwed.
I love my fiancee but I'm terrified because he never taught me how to love or treat a woman right.
All I've ever wanted to do is be a dad, and now I'm terrified because I don't have my teacher or role model
I never thought anything would be this hard.But thank you for thoughts. Bout the nicest thing anyone has said to me about him in 6 months

From what I understand, as long as it scares the hell out of you but you do it anyway, because you want to do things right, you will be a good father.
User avatar #129 to #38 - nighkey ONLINE (11/18/2013) [-]
Dude. I got into an important situation where no one could help me but me. This situation involved my elderly father's power tools. He can barely use them anymore without gasping for air, but has been a contractor every day of his life after Vietnam. So I couldn't ask him for help, and went out there to use the saws. I kept acting like a freaking moron, and screwing up basic tasks on things that were just common sense, and at 20, I still don't know better. While using the table saw, a piece flew off and smashed into my arm and rendered it useless for about 24 hours.

Things hurt when you're scared, and you need to step up and do it anyway. I stood there literally pretending I was a Spartan, waiting for the incredible pain to pass. Then, you pick up your cut pieces, and keep going, knowing better what NOT to do. No one is going to hand feed you information, advise, or wisdom. These are things you dare to acquire on your own. What should scare you is being a 40 year old who has tried nothing, and accomplished nothing.

I met my lover and dared to make an 800 mile travel to marry them. No one could prepare us for what being a parent was like, it is something you have to learn on your own. Life is an adventure in itself, and if you sit there staring out the window wondering something, you'll never know the answer unless the answer is in yourself.

Mine passed when I was 10 and just hitting puberty, and I lived in a small town with few people to help. ****** me up at first but I'm getting the hang of things. Also, advice from uncles or grand-dads or old men you know. Don't get to that age without seeing some **** , and probably know what your going through.

My dad was diagnosed with stage IV prostate cancer last year. My winter break from college is almost 2 months long. I want to spend as much time with him as I can during that time.

I need to make up for the times I ignored him.

Pretty much the opposite for me. When I was a kid, my dad constantly wanted to take me places like to the movies or the driving range, but all I ever wanted to do was play my Gameboy, or do something introverted, because that's how I was. I recall overhearing arguments between he and my mom, during which he'd be shouting, "He never wants to do anything with me. Why does he hate me?"

Never hated him (well, not never, but you know), I was just introverted. But now I'm an adult, and my father and I really don't even know each other. It's kind of sad, and I'm probably going to regret this later in life, but it's the way it is.
User avatar #81 to #50 - qxangelxp (11/18/2013) [-]
That's actually the exact same thing for me.
My dad lives hours away. I live with my mom and step dad.

As a kid, I would go visit my dad and his family almost every weekend. It was cool I guess. He had neater things in his home, like cable TV and a fridge loaded with food, but I didn't like that he took me to places he wanted to go. He took me to see his family who I didn't know at all. He took me to watch soccer games. He took me to work with him. He took me to resturants that he wanted to eat at, and check out chicks. He did show he cared about me, from things like letters to me every so often, to child support, to him telling me he plans on giving me his pickup truck (pretty new and decent looking at the time)

I grew up and gradually stopped visiting him as often, and sort of stopped caring as much. I don't hate him, though I can't say I love him, at least not as much as my plenty supportive step dad. I know for a fact that I don't want him to feel bad, or feel I don't like him.

I don't honestly consider him someone that is a close part of my life. My mom has to be the one to remind me of his birthday to give him a phone call.

Call him. Call your dad and tell him you love him. You know you'll regret it if you don't, and you know it will mean so much to him, so why don't you do it? Please? For someone that doesn't have that chance anymore...
#63 to #51 - trymeudie (11/18/2013) [-]
Call him, I pretty much never take the time to thumb up comments, much less make one. I'm doing both now, call him.
