I threw up a little in my mouth.
But I had an AWESOME father. He was the most with it guy, so intelligent, worldly, experienced, patient. Never yelled at me, never lost his temper. When he was disappointed in me I wanted to sink into the ground.
I mourned his death terribly. But that wasn't because we had a "quality" relationship, we had a quality + quantity relationship. He was retired when I was 8, and became the stay at home dad. Packed lunches, made breakfast, drove me to and from school so I never had to ride the bus.
That man loved me so much.
Anyways, dealing with fathers who don't have the energy to parent is a huge drag. I don't always have the energy to, either, but tough nuts. You do what you have to do, and do it the best that you can do.
I just don't have respect for quitters, when it comes to kids at least. I just don't think there's any excuse other than laziness from the OP.
