Dear Dad

Dear Dad:

I want to be honest with you, I’m not sure anyone really has yet.  Listen carefully, I’m saying this for your own good.

You don’t need a fanny pack, I sincerely doubt there is anything you need to carry on you at all times.  Adding the cowboy hat doesn’t help, in case you forgot you are from Manhattan :annoyed:

I know you are stubborn and oddly cheap but refusing to have a real cell phone doesn’t make any sense.  You never have it on, you don’t have voicemail and you say that you only use it for “emergencies.”  Pray tell father, if we have an emergency and your phone isn’t on or you can’t get the message, how does that work?  And no, I will not page you, nobody uses pagers anymore! :banghead:  You are a doctor and always have the newest Mac laptop, I don’t think an extra $30 for your cell phone is going to put you under.

No, nobody would ever buy an automatic toenail clipper so stop claiming you are going to invent this.  Nobody is going to stick their toes in something with blades and batteries.

I know you won’t listen to me but I figured it was about time it was said.

    PS: I will, however, point out that I respect that you ‘do your own thing’ and not cowtow to peer pressure. Repeat after me: “Conformity is for losers.”

    PPS: did you know your cell phone can *be* a pager? Plus they make ‘simple phones’ that just have dialing #’s and on/off buttons if you’re too put off by the complexity of the latest gadgets.

    Dutchy – :lmao:

    Whall – Ok, I must agree with you on the first one, Manly Man is considered very odd by a lot of people but I really respect him for being himself but then again he doesn’t embarrass me. As far as the second part, I did tell him the phone could be a pager, he didn’t care. Oh and he’s really into technology, most of my gadgets he’s bought for me, he loves that stuff so it’s not that.
