Many dads enjoy haggling in markets, and this usually starts with them bragging to mum about how they’re going to get a good deal on a watch. After a few heated words with the stall owner they’ll return defeated, clutching five watches, a rug and some sort of leather bag. The harrowing expression on their sweating face will scream ‘help me’. 7. Dad dancing at the resort discoHands up if this is familiar: you’re unwinding at the resort disco, your old man’s already smashed four bottles of Sol, then ‘Uptown Funk’ comes on. Suddenly your dad enters beast mode and transforms into the dancing king of Spain, flailing his arms like he’s being given electric shocks at irregular intervals. Rock on dad!8. Treating you like a kid in public – loudly”OK, we’ll catch you at the hotel later tonight, enjoy your dance club! Just remember to have plenty of milk before you go out drinking to line your stomach. And plenty of water. At least five glasses for every two pints. Have fun sweetie, we love you, bye!”Ugh. Double ugh if you brought a mate along. 9. Playing Dad rock in the carThis one especially applies to road trip holidays with your dad. Whatever happens, do not give him control of your Spotify account. You better believe he’s not going to chuck on some Stormzy or Ed Sheeran. It’ll be Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steely Dan and Peter Frampton for miles, and chances are you’re going to hate it.
