Just reminds me of not having my dad around since I was 8. Now I'm talking to him more do you think he gets offended that I don't buy or wish him a happy fathers day? He hasn't been much of one so don't see the point. He once told my Mum he doesn't want to be my dad just my best mate. Why she had to tell me that I do not know, because it really hurt. I guess father's day is harder for people who's fathers aren't even around any more, but thought I would share why I hate fathers day.
