A dad in Utah was fed up with his daughter’s choice in clothes.
Scott Mackintosh says this on his blog, “My teenage daughter day after day continues to wear clothing that I, as her father, feel is inappropriate and immodest. Her mother and I feel the same about the importance of dressing modest. With that said, let’s move onto the night of the happening.”
Last week, the family was about to leave for a miniature golf outing when Mackintosh heard his wife and daughter talking.
He says, “I heard my wife ask our daughter if she would please change into some longer shorts before leaving. She said ‘NO!’”
The father ran into his bedroom, grabbed the scissors whittled away at an old pair of pants.
When he was finished, the shorts were short enough to show the pockets hanging out at the bottom.
Mackintosh said, “As I walked out to the car I could see my daughter and my son in the back seat with their heads down focused on their phones…needless to say they didn’t even notice.”
The father had to think fast.
He said, “My thinking that this would end at home, quickly changed to… I guess we’re taking it to the road now.”
The kids finally noticed on the way to the restaurant.
The daughter said, “Why are you dressed like that? Oh well, I don’t care.”
Once inside the restaurant Mackintosh says he was horrified when he realized he knew two people.
Meanwhile, the daughter didn’t seem to care.
It wasn’t until after miniature golf, when the family went for milkshakes, that she had finally had enough humiliation.
The daughter said, “Uh, no! We are NOT going in!”
She ended up staying in the car.
Mackintosh posts, “I don’t think my object lesson of ‘modest is hottest’ made the statement I had intended. But no matter if social media gets the story mixed up and twisted, my daughter will always know that her dad loves her and cares about her enough to make a fool out of himself.”
