Fatherly Advice


So, I'm eavesdropping at lunch the other day and I hear two 40-ish men talking about fatherhood. Actually, one of the men has a daughter just learning to drive.

Father #1: I'm actually glad to buy her a car. I'm so sick of us having to drag her around to all her sh*t. Now we can actually have a life of our own.

Father #2: Aren't you worried she'll wreck the car or something?

Father #1: Nah, she can wreck the car all she wants. As long as she doesn't kill herself or someone else.

Father #2: Really?

Father #1: Yup. I'm not worried. I spent the first 16 years of her life keeping her off the pole. Which she did. So she'll be fine on the road. Just as long as she keeps off the pole.

The pole. I nearly wet myself.

I guess my own dad would be proud. I kept off the pole.

If your father only knew what I know....

Not to be offensive, but maybe he was using a euphemism.

kp - He probably did.

ACW - Good point - he probably did mean "pole" in every way imaginable, from a father's POV. You funny man.
