I seriously thought something went wrong with the ride and he abandoned his kid. Brutal. Classic dad move.
My dad did this. We were at Six Flags and he had me stand on a bridge above this water ride. When it hit the ground it made a *Giant* wave. He brought me to the center, and said "something cool will happen!". I turn to the right and say "hey dad, nothing hap-" I see him sprinting away and I got drenched.
I remembered my dad taking me to an ice skating rink to teach me how to skate as a young kid. Once I was all strapped in I got a quick run down on what to do before I got out on the ice. As I step on the ice I quickly grab the outside of the rink to regain balance. My dad says "One more thing. My father told me something as a kid to help me stay balanced." He then kicks the back of my skates throwing my feet up in the air as I land on my ass and back pretty hard. Holding back my tears he says to me "don't let people kick you in the back of your skates." Till this day when I go skating I make sure no one kicks the back of my skates.
What the fuck is wrong with imgur lately? Anyone got a mirror please?
