I'm ashamed of my father...
He can't stand to age, he doesn't want to get old. 3 years ago, one day at breakfast, he announced me and my sisters that he planned to follow his old dream : becoming a "dancer". (yes... a "progressive house" dancer to be exact, a really ugly music).
He's been training hard for 3 years, stopped caring about us, stopped caring about my sisters, stopped caring about his job (which he just left in february "to use all his time on his videos". Of course, he's now broke (almost no unemployment benefit for him since he chosed to resign, that's how it works in France).
Since our mom always had the better job, I still have the faculty paid, and my sisters still live comfortably. I guess it could be "okay" for us.
But the REAL pain in the ass is my father completely lacks any talent. He's a horrible, horrible dancer, and his videos are starting to ashame our whole family. Everybody in my small town have seen the videos and know I'm his son. Including all my friends. They laugh at him, and they make fun of me too. I really hate him, he's SO embarrassing.
I'm so embarrassed that I'm starting to laugh at him too, just to stop being ashamed and to put all the shame on him.
Selfish bastard. Are you old enough to take care of yourself? What he does is not your business. If everyone is making fun of him, it sounds like he could use a friend... And I should think it would at least be the person he raised.
Wow... Check his other videos... That's... Talent...
>Reputation doesn't matter
>who cares if people think your family is fucking retarded
>why does it matter if people laugh at you behind your back
Seriously, reputation matters. You're lying to yourself if you say any differently.
You obviously did something that embarrassed you so badly that you can only sleep at night by telling yourself over and over that reputation doesn't matter.
Only Assburgers think what other people think of you has ZERO influence in their lives.
Do you fucking live alone, under a rock, self sufficiently? No? Too bad. You need to interact with other human beings.
christ that sucks
my father always wanted to be a pilot and when he retired he took lessons in one of those little cessnas and bought half of one with a guy at the airport and like once a month he flys my mom somewhere out of state to eat at a restaurant or see a museum or something
my dad loves it and it is not embarrassing, i hope i can pick something like that to do if i have an old my crisis
Hard old school techno?
If your father dances to this, post video asap.
>tfw this is literally your dad
You can see he is trying, really putting some effort in it. But he just comes out so amateur-like.
Also, I don't think the style fits his age.
>Obviously afraid to do something that embarrasses you so badly that you can only sleep at night by justifying your fear of others opinions by 'protecting' others from their own lack of inhibitions.
the only way to restore honor to your father and your family is to become a better dancer yourself
if you could dance your father would be proud and able to see his dream happening in you which would cease his will in this really strange dance pursuit, but thats only if you give enough of a shit to end this. i think you just like whining
also hot tip: if you yourself are ashamed then others will see and be ashamed as well. you have to come to terms with it so it no longer bothers you, its okay to laugh if you think its funny, but you have to try to conceive the thought that your father is being really brave and following his dreams, try to understand and be genuinely proud. other people will look to you to see how you react and determine the truth of the situation based on you, if you think he's pathetic than so will they, if you think he's cool so will they. why? because you're his son
My dad is similar. He's decided that in his retirement he is going to be a writer. He recently had his first book "published," meaning he spent 5K to have it made. It's a supremely cringeworthy erotic thriller, one that's entirely transparent as being his own fantasy (example - lead character has a bitchy wife, so the hero businessman goes into a strip club and is promptly blown by a stripper on the basis of her being impressed by his job). Even in his own fantasies, the lead character is a giant fucking dork who thinks he's cool. And the writing is god-awful.
He's sent this shit to all of our family members, and is super proud. Everyone's laughing at the ridiculousness of this book behind closed doors.
He also won't stop writing lewd things on facebook, often on the walls of random women he doesn't know, and it's all public. Everyone in the family has caught him watching porn and cranking it at various times; he has no regard for discretion whatsoever. My mom is currently divorcing him and he's getting more cringeworthy by the day.
Anyway, I'm starting just to laugh at him as well. So I know that feel.
OP, try having a mother that has quit her job like 15 times to try to go back to school, just to realize she can't do it financially and has to drop out every.single.time. Shes 45 and is thinking about going back to school yet again. Growing up, she'd do it, and us kids were fucked because no money coming in. Now that we're all grown up, when she tries to do it, she bums money off us until we're fucked ourselves.
>simultaneously implying that I already have done said embarrassing thing and haven't
>afraid of doing it implying I haven't
>justifies it by 'protecting other from lack of inhibition' which could be what you idiotically interpreted my comment as, implying I have already done it.
Logical consistency is for newfags anyway.
Tl;dr: hang yourself with a tape measure

> Feeling sorry for you...
you should be ashamed of yourself, your father isn't making anything wrong but you are for your harsh judgement. Also he could have a mental illness, you are making fun of your insane father just to not get ridiculed by others, you are a weak french faggot.
Dude. In that particular part, the stripper says something like, "I'm guessing you don't get much love at home - is that about the size of it?" Then the character points to his dick and says, "No, this is about the size of it."
IT'S SO BAD
>i bet it would be more social acceptable if he were a mime
>fucking french people
i formed a strong bond between a tight knit group of about 15 friends, my family, and my girlfriend
at that point in time my conglomerate was bigger and more important than any one person that had something bad to say about me and therefore, i never gave a single solitary fuck about anyones opinion and was able to be myself to the fullest
>>simultaneously implying that I already have done said embarrassing thing and haven't
Yeah, didn't do that.
>>justifies it by 'protecting other from lack of inhibition' which could be what you idiotically interpreted my comment as, implying I have already done it.
Yeah... Uhm, did do that. I don't have to imply you have done it, but it is admittedly logically inconsistent in that I assumed you used the word 'ashamed' properly.
>I'm so embarrassed that I'm starting to laugh at him too, just to stop being ashamed and to put all the shame on him.
Went back to reread. Didn't want to accidentally imply anything. Also, didn't really carry the weight of this statement into my follow up posts. 'Selfish bastard' was all I needed to say.
Of course, 'bastard' is a logical inconsistency as well. You do know your father. And he's a dancer/entertainer with a prick for a son.
at least he's not like that fat fucker who stopped dancing when people laughed at him
embarassing family shit thread?
my dad always makes comments about my brothers' and mine female friends. I mean, it's less inappropriate now that we're older, but he did it even when we were in school. in front of our mom. also checks out EVERY SINGLE WOMAN jogging when he's in the car, with my mom looking right at him like "really nigga?"
it's just embarrassing because he's so obvious and indiscreet. I wish my parents would divorce, mostly because he's a fun guy and my mom is a religious cunt. he deserves to drive a sports car and fuck someone thirty years younger than him.
Fuuuuuuck dude. Please buy him a fedora.
I like progressive house, but it's EDM for parties rather than... this.
It's his loss. If he's not making money, than avoid ties with him. You're financially stable for yourself, right? Just distance and give your father some time to see how it works put for him, he might just learn on his own.
If you are over the age of 18, stop whining and get a job and worry about your own life. alsi, if your parents are married, you need to shut the hell up, because these types if choices about finances and goals are between your parents. I live 2400 miles away from my family. Just be happy you have yours and stomach complaining.
The first guy was somebody I'd seen around before (know for a fact wasn't OP 'cos he would have posted a fucking Picard picture instead of what he did), but the fag you replied to wasn't him.
I don't think Picard could have gone without posting a Picard piece of shit. He can't stop himself on hunger games threads.
OP he's actually not bad at all. Sure I could see it being embarrassing since it's your Dad and he's older but he's not a lousy dancer by any stretch. If he sticks with he, who knows, it may turn into something. Support him, he's pursuing his dream even at an older age, that's commendable in my book.
Dancer looks like Richard Burnish or whatever from Jesus Chatline and the other guy in white that joins later looks like his partner.
If not, I'm sorry for you OP. It's fresh cringe OC
Kek, there's someone in the world whose biggest problem is that his 40 year old father became a dancer.
At least he's happy dude, my dad refuses to accept he's old too, sometimes he dissapears for days because he's clubbing.
While I'm no fan of his dancing or life choices you sound like a whiny little bitch OP whos only concern is what others think. Grow the fuck up and live your own life sport. His responsibility to you is pretty much over at your age and he certainly doesnt owe you shit.
he is giving you the best example a father can give you perharps without knowing, you have to do whathever the fuck you want with your life witouth asking yourself if what you do make somebody else happy, he is a horrible dancer tho! also kek
You're right, I don't. It sucks that it's hard on you. But like others have said: he's doing what he wants to do, you know?
My dad thinks it's cool to dress like a psychopath with 5 different length shirts and patterns. Huge ass sunglasses and one of those golfing hats. All the while, wearing leather pants and converse.
I've been embarrassed. People make fun of him. But it's what he likes.
I actually have a similar story. My dad had a high paying job, he worked as a consultant for a company on wall street. My mom worked part time as a mechanical engineer. He didn't let my mom into any of the goings on of the houses finances and blew $200k on a bad investment he wasn't willing to give up on. He decided consulting wasn't for him, and at 46 he started a business. He buys and sells commodities, I never really bothered to ask him about it. He barely made any money off it. About $15k a year. My sister worked as a hotel manager at 20 and made twice that. At the time we owned a very large house and we were paying mortgage on it still and my mom's salary (she started working full time as soon as my dad quit consulting) was not cutting it. My mom always tried to do right by my sister and I, my dad withheld money when he had it, and once he was broke, leeched off my mother. When he started doing "business" he'd just bullshit on the phone with his friends and get pussy when things didn't go his way, which was a lot.He was an ungrateful piece of shit about it too. If I had a dollar for every time my dad called my mom a bitch for not making him dinner when she was tired after work, I'd be able to pay my own mortgage. Thank God they're divorced now.
>you don't know how its like
BREAKING THE LAW
BREAKING THE LAW
Oh my God, spare me this bullshit. You don't think my dad has ever embarrassed me?
How old are you motherfucker? Do you have a job? Can you support yourself? Why don't you cut ties with him? Go fuck off to a claustrophobic apartment shithole and work a shitty wage.
The only similarity here is that you're ashamed of your dad. Granted, justly so.
I suppose the attack is just going to have to be my questioning your intelligence in not being able to recognize the insult.
Daring, is what it is. I might have to take this to /fa/
Also, obligatory french/pepe le pue reference.
if it wasn't fucking french which I totally hate as a language, the song and the dancing could be really entertaining to watch. we have some singers / dancers in germany who do shittons of money just by producing cheesy videos like this. of course they don't take themselves too seriously, whereas your father is dead serious which urges most people to cringe and make fun of him
is this a serious question? who really wants to be any of those things? he's not playing by their rules any more. good for him.
To the OP: Your dad isn't hurting anyone by dancing in his music videos which are actually fairly entertaining because of how amateur and kitschy they are. He's found something he loves to do and wants to see if he can make money from his passion which my father has done successfully with his love of making music and jingles. Why don't you stop being such a faggot and join your dad in enjoying life?
Okay, I guess I see your point. I think it's extraneous, though, as OP has not implied his family has experienced any ACTUAL suffering as a result of this.
Niggah, my pops owns a "small business" and does all the corny ass radio and tv commercials.
When someone gives me shit I laugh and say but guess what, your dumb ass is talking about him.
Now no one gives me shit about it cus its part of who i am and who he is. No big fucking deal.
>You just a punk bitch.
So your dad wants to follow a passion he's had for a long time, a passion he's probably either put off because he collapsed to public opinion the way you're doing right now or simply because he was raising you and your siblings and you're ashamed of him? If anything, he should be ashamed of you for being so weak and narrow minded. Although then he probably wouldn't think that about you, because he loves you and wants you to be happy. Not that you'd know anything about that.
you don't have to be a dirty hippy anarchist to do something you love instead of being a cog
Dirty hippie anarchists like my dad and the people encouraging him follow dreams and "are themselves". Workers like me and my mom work and get serious and support the world on their shoulders.
If he loves me and my sisters, then why doesn't he care ?
Oh, my shit... There actually IS no hope for you.
Dirty hippie anarchist.. what a stupid analogy.
>Implying there is no such industry
You and your mom are just another statistic, like me and the rest of the working class. You don't support jack shit and nothing would happen if your ass didn't exist in the first place.
hey man don't go giving up on people
maybe his dad will inspire him one day
My bad... My bad. I'm just losing faith.
I'll take 'experimental slow motion cowboy house dance' for 1000.
Every god damn video is better than the other...
This man is SO talented.
did this, i'm never sure what to include in a cap of a thread tho
Shit dawg, we didn't even win the Civil War.
The Americans don't "hold" or "occupy" a country, it's the 21st century. They install puppet governments or western backed dictators. This is the case with many countries Americans invade.
or anons can do it themselves and not have to be spoonfed like niggers on welfare, anyway it's not much of a problem
oh putain il est possédé par quel démon ton père?
This thread is about dancing and following dreams... WHY DO YOU SPEAK ABOUT WAR !? GOD DAMMIT !
how old are you op?
im guessing you are in your teens because who the fuck cares if your father likes to dance and what the fuck do your friends have anything to do with that? he just doesnt give a fuck and is doing what he likes to do and if you dont like it, whatever. yes his dancing is slightly funny but its not something i would laugh my ass to sleep every night. get over it
your moms keeping him around because he bones her well. who doesn't want a fucktoy when the bills are paid?
i don't know how old he his, but judging by the gorilla video he's at least fitter than most other dudes his age. so kudos to your mom- she's the real winner in this situation
tl;dr fuck everyone else when you're getting laid well says OP's mom
if i get dubs this video become the next rickroll
dont be a selfish faggot op
just let your dad follow his stupid dreams
Oh boy you're fucked. The thing is if he actually accepted criticism with such a dedication he might actually make it as a dancer. If only it wasn't for his ignorance towards actual theoretic knowledge he would not have to find that out by trial and error and making a fool of himself.
You sound like a little cunt. Let your fagdad do what he likes and stand up for something for once.
sapmming dance gifs, searching for the one with duane!
Let's name fat OP's dad
He's embarrassed that he's so not cool
OP did not have a good start in life if he think life is being just another grain of sand in the beach, eventually you will understand your father, he will be long gone tho. also, evidence suggest you're just a little cunt...
When you decide you are ready to tell the world you like sucking dick and that sometimes you stick a little toothpaste in your ass when you masturbate or if you decide to do something with your life, even though chances are against you your dad will still be your dad.
Fuck you and help your sissydad to dance like a bitch in a rave!
>"No, this is about the size of it."
That's fucking hilarious.
We aren't unique and special snowflakes, we are grains of sand. Embracing mediocrity is better than suffering for our stupid selfish dreams.
i dunno, better dancer than me and undoubtedly better than anyone in this fucking thread. His choice of style and music is just a little silly. To be honest the singer and the second dancer are the actually terrible ones. If it's not really effecting your quality of life, just deal with it and be your own person. Your dad wants to dance and is putting him self out there trying to do it, poor you.
My dad got some environmental achievement award or something, he's a pretty well respected photographer, has raced mc, and he's pretty alpha in everyday life too (some polish retard tried to cut him in traffic so he pulled ahead and motioned for the pole to step out of the car on an empty parking lot, pole comes swinging at him with a golf club and gets his arm broken by my dad some moments later, he's pretty good with kids too.
Kinda sucks tho, my dad is basically everything a man should be and I'm worthless
Écoute écouuuute ce sooon magiiiique...
If you understood french, you would get the whole poetry behind this song. It would blow your mind
it all come out op try to get your dad to teach the ways of the alpha its your only hope to not being a cuck raised by your sisters not that that is a bad thing
well its in your blood man. the potential to be a badass exists within you
my dad is similar, born in san fran, father left him, mother mentally ill, all his brothers and sisters alcoholic or drug addicts. the only one to get away from that family clean, was in a biker gang, then raced indy cars professionally, then opened his own restaurant in vegas
me: not shit. yet... I've been getting closer to my father and i see it in me now
oh but I'm 19 lol you might be old
Lol 2 away, well I mean, I do go to uni and I'm assisting two professors in a field project (that I am doing better than they are) and I live with my gf but. I still can't stand myself, must feel shitty for my dad to watch his firstborn son be such a little bitch
20 , his sister is an alcoholic on sick leave or w.e you call it, she's basically only worked 4 years of her life.
His dad was an asshole to him, so he went out there and fought for whats his, maybe that's why I'm such a fuckup, I had everything handed to me, my dad punched some biker dude unconscious for kicking his friend while 4 of his buddies tried to do the same to my dad and in the end they had to call the cops and shit to help their friend, I can't even beat up a nigger on my own
>admits to not knowing what he thinks he knows
you're not very good at this
