Sure, everyone is unique and all that, but there is also a ubiquitous “dad brand” that all dads must adhere to, at least at a minimum. I don’t make the rules, y’all!
You might as well just accept it, the way these 17 dads have done, because everyone’s gonna be a whole lot happier if you just go ahead and Dad as hard as you can.
17. A masterclass in passive aggression.
Usually I wouldn’t approve but etiquette is the exception.
Got so mad that someone had put their coat in the overhead that I sat in a seat I didn’t want just so I could move their coat and put my suitcase in its place

16. I mean we can all agree that this sounds like a pretty excellent day.
Dad or not, honestly.
Installed a ceiling fan in our bedroom one Sunday using step-by-step video instructions from a YouTuber, marveled at what a good job I had done, drank a beer and then took a nap.

15. You’re a dad now, it’s allowed!
Also that way your wife can also gain 20lbs without judgment, right?
Gained 20 lbs

14. Ah, gotta love the anal retentive dad!
These aren’t as common as some dad varieties!
I made a conscious decision to migrate all power tools to the same battery system. With a 3 year migration calendar. In Excel.

13. The never ending dad project.
You’ve gotta have one or they’ll pull your card.
Dan and I, last October : since we're redoing the french drain anyways, let's dismantle the deck so we can redo/extend it before winter. Should be done in 1-2 weekends, max.

12. This is just an older person in general move.
I swear, I’m not a dad I’m just a lazy shopper.
Found a shirt I liked and then immediately bought three more of the exact same shirt in different colors.

11. There is a long list of Dad Concerns.
Also, we don’t use the phrase “the youths” nearly enough.
Went to see Bob Seger, expressed concern about what the youths at a festival were wearing bc of the weather, and this is just in the past three weeks of Dad Concerns

10. And telling people it would be a shame to waste it just mowing, I assume.
Remember that’s still drinking and driving, my friend.
Bought a riding lawn mower and have been riding it on the street between my house and my brother-in-law’s house.

9. Time waster? Maybe.
But now you can speak with authority on the subject.
Spent days researching credit card options only not to apply for any of them.

8. He was just resting his eyes.
We can rewind everything now anyway.
Fell asleep during the final games of both the NHL and NBA Finals on consecutive nights.

7. A rookie mistake for a dad.
But they do love to utilize their trucks.
Bought a pickup truck this past year. When friends decided to move their three bed home, instead of getting a U-Haul like a normal person, I insisted “the truck can handle multiple runs.”
Six round trips later, half their stuff got to their new place.

6. Yes, Nike makes an exclusively “dad” line.
The fact that I don’t think they’re that ugly just means I’m a mom.

5. I want to disapprove but I just can’t.
It’s legitimately funny, yall!
Taught my 3 year old to ask people “Guess What” and respond to their “What” with “Chicken Butt!” And then laugh hysterically

4. It must not have been a very good movie.
That’s not on you, my friend.
Showed up unnecessarily early to a movie and then fell asleep about 30 min in

3. You’ve gotta get the most for your money.
And also make good time. Don’t forget that part.
On road trips, I independently calculate my gas mileage per tank. Then I fuss aloud about any discrepancy from my car’s mileage calculation.

2. Ten at night in public? Woof.
That’s not going to happen.
Had tickets to a concert, saw the headliner was going on at 10pm, passed to stay home and watch Frasier

1. Dads never take their audience into consideration.
Honestly, that’s the gift of a Dad Joke.
On windy days I tell my wife the need to shut off the wind turbines… “they left the fans on again!” Doesn’t get a laugh everytime, but that’s showbiz baby

I love dads. The good ones are great, aren’t they?
