Dad dumbfounded by stepson’s ‘humiliating’ Father’s Day gift: ‘I almost cried’

A man can't seem to connect with his 16-year-old stepson, and it's become truly upsetting. He explained the situation on Reddit's "Am I the A******" forum. Despite him putting in the effort, his stepson doesn't seem interested in bonding. Whenever the teenager does give him attention, it usually turns out to be a prank. But on Father's Day, the Reddit poster believes his stepson took the jokes too far . "Father's Day, I took my wife and my stepson and stepdaughter to [my in-law's] house for breakfast," he wrote. For once, his stepson gave him a gift. "I opened the box and saw a stinky, old sock of mine that I lost a couple of months ago placed inside," he said. "My stepson encouraged me to show everybody what he's got me. I just got up and walked out of the room silently while my stepson was laughing behind me". "What he did felt so humiliating I almost cried. My wife is upset that I left". Reddit users thought the stepson was being hurtful. "You shouldn't have to put up with this," a person commented
