'If you miss even one shift you get demoted': Father/Boss forces son to miss the birth of child

It's never a good thing when an employer forces their employee to miss a significant life event in order to assert their authority over the employee's life and ensure that they never dare to question the importance of their work again.

Daughter Disregards Dad's Discount Demands

It certainly comes across in the post as if she is just trying to spite her father and taking any excuse possible not to purchase him the cable he is after. Why can't she just buy it for him as a gift… It…

This dad posted this thread to Reddit's r/AITA (Am I the A-Hole) subreddit. He posted the thread to see if he was in the wron…

Husband Annoyed At Pregnant Wife's Pain, Internet Wants Him Gone

It certainly takes a special type of person to be annoyed by their partner's discomfort and health pains. It's tough to imagine judging someone who you (supposedly) love so deeply for something that is entirely out of their control and acting like they are being lazy. Even worse when the thing that is causing that discomfort and pain is the fact that they are growing your child inside of them.
