A dad from Utah has taken parenting to a whole new level.
Scott Mackintosh was tired of seeing his daughter going out in shorts that were way too short for her. Every time he and his wife would ask her to put on something more conservative, she would refuse.
So, one night before a family outing, Scott finally broke down. After hearing his teenage daughter refuse to put on some longer shorts before the family went out to eat and play mini-golf, he decided to teach her a lesson the hard way.
The father of seven grabbed a pair of his pants and cut them until they just barely covered his butt cheeks. He then put on his, “Best. Dad. Ever.” T-shirt and headed out with his embarrassed family.
His poor family received nasty stares at the restaurant, but his daughter kept her cool and tried her best not to let her embarrassment show. However, at the end of the night, she refused to get out of the car when they stopped to get milkshakes. She obviously didn’t like the fact that her father’s milkshake was bringing all the boys to the yard.
Scott talked to Desert News to clarify his actions,
“I simply did this in hopes that my daughter would know of my great love for her and that she knows of her great worth. Now that it has gone viral, I hope that young women everywhere understand their great worth. I will look like an idiot any day if that point gets across.”
If the point he was trying to make was that guys should never wear short shorts, then well done Mr. Mackintosh!
It’s a good thing I had a light breakfast.
