Oh, dads…sometimes they really put their feet in their mouths when they’re just trying to be funny.
This isn’t the worst thing I’ve ever heard in my life, but I can see how some people would be offended by what this dad did.
And this guy took to Reddit’s “Am I the *sshole?” forum to ask the fine folks there if he was wrong for using certain language in front of his young son.
Let’s take a look at what he had to say.
AITA for suggesting my 7 y/o name his new stuffed tiger “Tig Bitties”?
“My son won a stuffed tiger at the fair last night and said he had named him “Tig”.
He asked me what its last name should be. I couldn’t help myself and just instantly replied “Bitties”.
Then I turned to my wife to share a smirk, but she was p*ssed and quickly suggested a few different last names, but my son insisted that he liked “Bitties”, so now his Tiger is Tig Bitties.
My wife thinks it was completely inappropriate, I think it was a silly joke that went over his head and will have no negative ramifications.”
And here’s what folks had to say on Reddit in response.
This person thinks the whole thing was blown out of proportion and that people need to chill out.
Another Reddit user agreed and said the whole thing was just a joke.
But another reader thinks that this guy is an *sshole and that the kid is bound to repeat this name in front of other folks.
We all know kids can’t really keep their mouths shut…
This Reddit user is having a hard time making up their mind.
They think the dad was wrong…but they also think the name is pretty funny.
And finally, this person did not think the dad did anything wrong here. So I guess “Tig Bitties” might be here to stay…
Now it’s your turn to sound off.
In the comments, let us know if you think this dad was being funny or was he being a big-time jerk.
We’d love to hear from you!
