What do you guys do for your Dad on Father's day?
I wanted to take my Dad to a game, and he wanted to bring his dad but it sounds like my Grandpa is not healthy enough to do something like that anymore, and I can tell he seems very disappointed about it.
I saw my dad last on my birthday and he gave me a carton of Indian smokes. He tells me, "Smoke up Johnny!" Then he cuffed me across the mouth for not thanking him quickly enough. He gets a card form me for fathers day and that's about it.
I pay for dad to get steak and a blowjob , can't believe it costs 150 bucks , my mom is such a greedy bitch
I can see my Dad particularly stressed these days with my scum bag older brother back in the mix, and his wife still giving him shit like she's done for the past 30 odd years.
I love my mom, but his wife's always been a grade a cunt to him.
Yes I'm talking about the same woman, but I have to separate the roles by behavior.
I wanted to do something to show my appreciation for him being a good guy for all these years and doing his best to keep shit together, but I don't think my Grandpa's healthy enough to even venture far out of his apt, nonetheless make it over to the new Yankee stadium, he's just so much older and apparently my Dad talked to him and he said he can't really even stand for more than 15 minutes at a time, maybe that wheel chair thing is the way to go, not sure.

I've always had a hard time figuring out what to do/give for Father's Day. Mother's Day is easy because flowers and shit. However, my dad is into technology/computers, and he pretty much just buys himself whatever he wants all year round. Stuff like sports games don't interest him at all, and he's happy to just sit around all day fiddling with his new tablet or smart phone.
If I remember I try to think of why I should do anything for him, can't think of anything and then go about my day.

The last few years of my father's life I got him a Friday afternoon to Saturday night fishing tip on a boat large enough to sleep on, and well suited to fishing where he wanted to. One of his greatest joys in life was fishing. It was pricey, but he loved it and my brother and I joined him for it.
My kids are trying to figure out what they want to do for me, and it's looking like a hiking weekend with the whole family in Northern Michigan, to include fly fishing for everyone.
Every father's day needs a father's night
My stepfather always whines if I don't get him a card. My actual father would mock me if I sent him a card or even acknowledged something as silly as fathers day.
If I ever saw my dad again I would punch him square in the nuts. Dude was a total D-bag.
Anyways, I'm not doing anything for my dad, nor is anything being done for me. Although I did tell my wife today that a BJ would be an awesome gift... I just don't give a shit about Hallmark holidays.
Like McCheese I have a lot of trouble with this. My mom you can buy flowers and maybe take her out for food and that's good. My dad makes a good amount of money and generally buys whatever he needs when he needs it, and anything he didn't buy I definitely can't afford. Last year I think we got him a Roku that he wanted but was afraid to dive into, he loved it. This year I have no clue at all.
If our teams makes it we normally go to the College World Series together and I treat as part of Father's day. Been several times together. Otherwise I get a card and something small. I see him nearly everyday sinced we are in business together.
I'm trying to figure what I can do this Fathers Day that would be special.
He had 2 sons, me and my brother who passed July 4th 2007 at 41. He is 70 and is pretty confident he will not make it another year, massive heart issues, blood clots ongoing and other stuff.
Anyways for the past 2 years I have employed him off and on to help him with bills and spending money and he has everything he pretty much wants as it is so I don't need to buy him something and the things he enjoys like hiking are now out of the question.
I moved back from TN in 2010 to be closer and live only .2 miles away now and we always call each other when we need something moved or help or whatnot and talk daily in person or phone.
I'm just at a loss what I can do to make this year something more special.
My dad makes plenty of cash, so I honestly have no idea what to get him. He owns literally everything he wants. The only thing he wouldn't buy for himself are probably tickets to a sporting event, but he lives too far from the teams he likes to go see any of them.
My wife's family goes overboard with gift and card purchasing for these meaningless holidays. I have two kids now and am asked what I "would like". Well first of all, I am a grown ass man and I can manage for myself. What I would like is to have a nice day with the family that doesn't require anything to be bought for someone. Between apparently infinite birthdays and weird holidays like these it feels like the entire year is spent shopping for stuff people don't truly want.
Now, grillin, beers, and kids running in circles like it's Mad Max times, sounds good. Oh ya, that's every day =D
If dad wants to be with his dad for the actual father's day, I'm sure the next weekend's game at yankee stadium will serve as something equally nice, or just another day both of you can make. I give my wife prepaid massage cards and shit and she can schedule when she wants it anytime. I dunno seems silly to limit all activity to the day itself.

This is my first fathers day without my father, he passed away on April 24th. I don't know why I wrote that. But typically we would spend the day watching sports together and go to his favorite mexican restaurant for dinner.
For Father's day I tell my Wife and kids to leave me alone.. Take the Kayak or Mountain bike out in to the wilds for the day.
