Don’t Mess With Dad - Awkward Galleries

Most teenagers deal with plenty of stress, from school to homework to their home life, but oftentimes teens don’t have to deal with unusual embarrassments like Rain has. This 16-year-old kid had to deal with his parents, Dale and Rochelle, waving as he left for school. Not wanting to endure the embarrassment any longer, Rain told his mother, “Don’t let dad go out there again.” Instead of listening to his son, however, Dale had something else in store.

The pictures below show Dale’s clever response to his son’s request.

    Same flip flop in each picture EXCEPT the leprechaun one… LOVE this! Some day, the kid will be a dad and he’ll be able to tell his kids about the wacky stuff that used to go on. This is a dad who loves his kid! Awesome dad!

  2. Pittipat says:

    But the flipflops remain the same…

  3. Des says:

    Life is so rushed, parents are so rushed/busy so it’s such a blessing that this dad took time out to do this crazy thing. Not just a mumbled “Goodbye son” in the morning. Thumbs up to this dad!

  4. Mandy says:

    This father is awesome!

  5. Brian F says:

    The kids name is Rain? Doubt the kids thought his dad was the weirdest thing about the bus ride.

  6. Tituk says:

    just saw that on german tv

    ur great!!

  7. YellowOnline says:

    Congrats Sir: you win 100 internets. Very cool.

  8. Leila says:

    Much respect and appreciation to his valiant dedication (to humilate his son)

  9. Lee says:

    I think this was what wife meant when she said

    “i want to pass this onto family members”

    when asked

    “why did you buy the wedding dress?”

    Much Respect and Appreciation towards his (

  10. Trudy Walton says:

    Dad has a GREAT sense of humor. And every kid on that bus LOVED it. One day that kid, as a grown man, will look back and enjoy every minute of his Dad doing this. And Dad must own a Costume store!!!!

  11. Terry says:

    Bet the son never dreamed his actions would trigger this response. A classic case of unintended consequences, and taught in a harmless manner. Welcome to the grown-up world, son.

  12. Just Some Dude says:

    I would hate if my Dad was in the military and got his leg blown off.
    But then again, at least the pills he would get from the VA would give him something to do.

  13. Raybob says:

    This absolutely wins the Internet!

  14. Ralph Foster says:

    This was so cool ! What an imagination that Father has !! I can imagine some of the questions his son was asked at school after seeing some of those pictures ! Anyway it gave them something funny to start off the day !

  15. Tim says:

    I love this guy.

  16. Dan Sawyer says:

    Maybe the bravest man I have ever seen. This kid should be proud.

  17. kay says:

    As a parent whose form of discipline is to threaten to hug her 15-year-old daughter in public or to dance crazy at the band’s halftime show (neither of which I would probably ever do) this dad is MY HERO!!!!!! Best. Dad. Ever.

  18. Sally says:

    Wish my Dad had your sense of humor!! Awesome!!

  19. Junebug says:

    I’ll bet every kid on that bus couldn’t wait to see this house every morning!

  20. Rose says:

    He has a lot of time/money to come up with all of these costumes!

  21. Amy C C says:

    This is awesome, the only embarrasing one would be the toilet one but this guy earned his right to wave. I think its sweet but I never had a dad so who knows.

  22. joobs says:

    Dear Rain,
    You may be embarrassed for now, but never, ever doubt this: your dad CARES. This is a guy who goes through a lot of trouble for YOU. One day, these will be some of your happiest memories. :)

  23. Frannie says:

    I never laughed so hard… your son must have been mortified…lol lol lol

  24. Joan says:

    Love it… very ingenious and creative..Thank you for the laugh..May God bless you,Dad.

  25. leyla says:

    And that batman costume? One gust of wind and dad’s going to jail for inappropriately exposing himself to children.

  26. leyla says:

    Oh. My. God. That poor kid. Running away from home = totally justified in this situation.

    “Oooo, mommy and daddy gotta wave goodbye to you like a little baby?” Then the dad adds fuel to the fire with costumes.

    • Sonya says:

      Really runaway? I wish my father was like this. You can have by father have him get so drunk he is unaware he is peeing on himself in front of my friends. Im guessing you need to grow up and accept the good parents you have.

  27. FancyCat says:

    Gotta love that dad!!
    When I was a kid my dad would pick me up from school if it was raining and would walk to the classroom wearing his hat – it was a hunting hat, kinda like Elmer Fudd wore, with the flaps!
    When I was in high school he would drop me off. He used toilet paper as kleenex so there was always a couple of rolls of toilet paper on the dash. Not to mention he might pick me up from school with any assortment of farm animal that someone had given him that was sitting in the front seat.
    It may mortify you as a kid but as you get older, I look back and smile and miss my dad so much. Those were truly the best memories.

  28. cristina mendt says:

    What a cooool Dad. I can imagine he was the highlight every day for each kid on that school bus.

    • Judy says:

      You are so right! I used to be a school bus driver for ages Kindergarten to High School and I know they all would have had a big laugh out of this. What a great Dad to take the time and thought to do this. His son Rain (a beautiful name!) will remember this and I bet not be humiliated at all, but take pride and tell the stories and pictures with his kids!

  29. Bryony says:

    Simply brilliant! LOVE LOVE LOVE this guy :)

  30. Frances says:

    I wish my dad had that kind of humor when I was growing up. He gets an A+ in my book.

  31. SmokeyCat says:

    Greatest father ever!

  32. Shelby says:

    Wow! Poor kid.

  33. Maria says:

    What a cool dad!

  34. Maur says:

    What a guy! I LOVE this. Keep ‘em coming, Dad. You’re AWESOME…

  35. reese says:

    enjoyed every photo…

  36. Regarde Mira says:

    I think this is cool! Years from now this kid will remember this thinking his dad cared about him.

  37. Jane H says:

    These are GREAT!!! What a cool dad, really.

  38. Russ says:

    I love this guy!!!!

  39. Love2GetLeia'd says:

    WOW! Awesome dad, but poor kid. My dad was never afraid to be himself, even if it stood out in a crowd. It’s a valuable lesson. Hopefully his kid gets it one day. In the meantime, hopefully the bullying is bad – nothing wrong with wanting to be respected by your peers, either. Dad’s be disrespectful to his son, but the question is… is it justified somehow?

  40. Nikki says:

    Hilarious! I L<3ve it@!!! I bet Junior wishes he would have kept his big trap shut…lol!!

  41. pkpanar says:

    I love creative revenge

  42. MaryMitch says:

    Regardless of what he thinks now, that kid is going to be so proud of these pictures later. (And I’ll bet the other kids on the bus think the dad is pretty cool.)

  43. Cristina says:

    I know this 16-year-old is thoroughly embarrassed by his father now, but one day he will realize how extraordinarily lucky he was to have a parent like this. Some parents are barely there for the major milestones in their kids’ lives, much less the mundane things like watching them get on a school bus. This dad took something that most parents take for granted and turned it into an event most people would have a hard time forgetting.

    And guess what kid? You might find this embarrassing, but I’m willing to bet most of the kids on the school think your dad is awesome, and wish they had someone like that in their lives!

    “Out of the frying pan, into the fire,” as the saying goes.
