A father is being called out on social media — and by his wife — for not doing enough on his daughter’s birthday.
The dad took to Reddit’s
“Am I the A******” forum for validation but he did not receive it.
The issue arose when his wife was away for his daughter’s birthday.
He was tasked with handling the festivities,
but his 15-year-old daughter insisted she wanted nothing. So he did nothing.
The next day, his wife called, asking what he did for their daughter's birthday.
When he told her he did nothing, she blew up
at him, saying their daughter was "too shy"
to make a big deal about her birthday.
Then later that day, his brother-in-law dropped
off a cake and presents.
“He jokingly said to me, ‘what kind of father doesn’t buy cake for his kid’s birthday?’," the man said.
Reddit users felt the father shirked his responsibilities here.
“It’s sad that you didn’t go out of your way for her birthday or do anything for her, how disappointing for your daughter,” one user commented
