What I have noticed over the last few days is the lack of hype about Father’s Day. On Mother’s Day there are signs everywhere and big displays of flowers, chocolates etc.
All I’ve seen for Father’s Day are a few minty cards and some half price gillette products, because I’m sure every dad loves shaving! Anyway to add insult to injury I heard a Tesco advert on the radio and they said ‘Treat dad on Father’s Day’….great I thought they do get a mention. They then went on to say pork was on special offer! Now come on, who in their right mind is going to buy their dad pork???
So I’m complaining on behalf of all Dad’s out there. I know it’s more or less a money-making racket but Dad’s are just as important as mum’s. How many times has your dad come out to ‘rescue you’, or change a tyre, stand up for you against your mum when you are late home, be the easy-going one, or just made you laugh.
Let’s hear it for the Dad’s, they won’t be around forever.
