Your dad is a self-righteous prick. He throws punches, he should be able to take them. If he can't take them, then he should stop being such a bully. In case you don't know, what I am doing is called "playing the dozens
" in the United States. He made a joke about my penis being "cheesy", I returned the insult saying his "momma" thought it was "gouda". A stupid joke... an a mom joke... but that is how it goes.
Apparently it hurt your dads feelings. I hope your dad didn't ask you to come fight his battles for him. You did jump in right away. I would never ask my kids to get in the middle of my fights.. in fact, quite the opposite. I clean up my own messes.
If he is throwing a punch, and then hiding behind his kid... that's just pathetic. If he were a man, he would ask you to stay out of it.
If he doesn't want to play the game, he should stop throwing punches himself.
