Does this guy even hear himself? As one person in the comments section mentioned, the bar of fatherhood is already quite low. The concept of using two weeks of your paternity leave to abandon your newborn in order to take a vacation and visit other family is just about as selfish as it gets. And all just so you don’t have to use vacation days for your vacation? This guy might as well get the words “absent father” tattooed on his forehead now.
He shared his own side of the story via this thread on Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit, which is even more baffling because you know he’s probably trying to portray himself in a good light. What he’s actually done is probably ten times worse than how he explained it. It seems like his poor wife might be better off being a single mother than having to deal with his immature outlook. Keep scrolling below to watch this guy get torn apart in the comments section. When you’re done, take a look at these dad jokes.
