When it comes to relationship problems, nobody is better at putting things in perspective and reminding you of your self-worth than your family — especially when they tell you to snap the f*ck out of it.
High school junior Daleynee has a pretty cool dad who’s always good at bringing some levity to a situation, particularly when it comes to the boys in Delaynee’s life.
“We are always playing around,” Daleynee told BuzzFeed. “My mom gets mad at times because she thinks he can never be serious, but that’s something I love about him. There’s never a dull moment.”
“He tries so hard to be hip, that’s probably the funniest thing about him,” she continues. “Also the worst because I can’t get away with much since he’s so updated on everything.”
Thankfully, her dad is definitely updated on the art of delivering a sick burn. When Daleynee recently found herself in the middle of some “boy drama,” she called her friend to agonize over the situation. In the middle of the conversation, she recieved a pretty savagely-hilarious message from her dad in the next room.
Is there any better “Dad Relationship Advice” than “Shut up already, he was ugly”? I doubt it.
For the record, Daleynee insists that she wasn’t actually crying, but she did appreciate the sentiment. “I think he meant more of a stop whining because I was on the phone with one of my close friends for quite a while already,” she says.
This is why dads are great: not only do they force us to stop wallowing in self-pity, they also remind us that we’re above all this petty nonsense — and that uggos really aren’t worth our tears.
