At the risk of sounding cliche, I don't like like my father one bit. Yes, he works hard to make money so that I have somewhere to sleep and food to eat, but beyond that there is very little that is redeemable about my dad. Almost everything he says, with the exception of when he is at work or making a business call, is negative and vile. He acts like a kid and he has zero patience for anything. In long car rides with him, I put in headphones so that I don't have to listen to his cynical comments about my extended family, or how much he hates his job, etc. He sometimes even yells at my mom as though everything is her fault. If you were in my situation, what would you do?
