ok /b/. had a really shitty day. One of the worst in recent memory. Could use a laugh. Don't care if it's OC, pasta, YLYL shit, people getting rekt... Just make me laugh, please.
you could always be russian...1 dollar is now 80 rubble
io hate this reply shit when it tells me i gotta wait 4 mins
What happened, OP? Get it off your chest
Dad died, got pulled over on the way to the hospital to say goodbye. Missed him by about 45 minutes. Didn't really have anything to say to him that I haven't made sure to say in the past few months (he's been dying for a while) but I wanted to say bye.
Anon, no matter how bad your day gets, or how shitty you feel, take solace in knowing you will never, ever, be as bad as pic related, Chris-chan.
Cheer up, /b/ro
This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name.
Yeah this is starting to annoy me. The price of milk just shot up today because of this. Thank you oh glorious Western nations, I was not aware that starving millions of people was better than letting some corrupt crony lose power.
Sorry to hear that anon :(
Hope this thread helps.
No problem dude. Losing my grandparents was bad enough, I wouldn't be able to handle it if it was my mum or dad.
Yeah, it's rough. It hasn't really even fully hit me yet and i'm being a complete faggot about it even though I thought I was cool with it months ago. make sure you tell your parents that they weren't shit-tier at least once before you lose them. It'll mean a lot to all of you.
this is gonna be the gayest thing ever, but If you want to do something for me, call your dad (if you still can) and just tell him that he's cool dude who raises kids and doesn't afraid of anything.
I lost my Dad too like last christmas (Please, /b/, no Wham! jokes) and still miss him. Do not feel bad because you were too late to tell him goodbye, just try to go on with your life.
OP here. That's awesome. He might have thought it was weird at the moment, but that just means that he'll never forget it. And maybe some day when he's really down that memory will pop up and it'll make all the difference.
Thanks, anon. I'm gonna do my best to do that, but it's still difficult not to be bummed out about missing my last chance to say a few last words to the guy who taught me to say words.
My parents split when I was 10. that was rough. My dad had to bail to the east coast (we lived on the west coast) and for some reason, 10 year old me was convinced that I'd never see him again. Now that I think of it, It felt a lot like this, only this time it's for real. feelsbadman
I got the same problem. My dad died because he had alzheimers, and I never managed to visit him, and right in the week I want to say goodbye (even if he would not know that I was his son, because he just "forgot" it) he died. I think we share a fortune. Sorry that i am not that funny, /b/ro, maybe I will find some pics later on to cheer you up.
sorry about your dad, anon. Yeah, I guess you know the feels. It's strangely not at all how I thought it'd be. I'm less grief-stricken and more regretful than I'd imagined. I thought it would be the opposite.
Thanks. You wanna hear something odd? Ever since I saw that film as a kid, that speech made me long for the day that I could have feels like that. It seemed so grown up and cool. As soon as I walked out of the hospice place where my dad was, I immediately thought of that film and how I'd give anything to not know feels like that anymore.
Life is weird.
Like i said some posts ago, I found some old pictures. Even if you feel bad, you will never be something like this
I know what you mean. I lost my mother in a similar way. Cancer. It was a slow process. Years. By the end, I had already wept so many tears that I had nothing left to say or feel... I had already been washed away into oblivion. I never recovered. I felt too much. Now I'm too scared to feel again.
You may be interested to know that Rutger Hauer improvised that speech on the spot. No one was expecting it. At the end of the scene, after the director yelled cut, even the crew were in tears and they all applauded.
Guy with the other dead dad some posts ago, why does everyone forget about the person he loved even if he/she is not even dead? I did it the same way, never visitet him. But do not feel too bad about it, I still hope you get well soon.
I can't remember the details but he chopped out parts from the original script because he thought it missed the real point of the book and improvised his own lines instead, including the famous final words. You can google it.
Not sure what you mean. I didn't forget about my dad, I visited him regularly. I just think that I went through all the grief stuff when he was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. By the end I had already accepted he was basically already dead. That's why I was so caught off guard today. I thought I was ready for this but really I was just past the first part. Grief comes first, but I'm finding out that there's a lot of regret after that. All I can think about now are all the things I didn't do right that I can't ever go back and do over.
Okay, maybe I got you wrong.
(I wont manage to meet my dad because he was mental ill, and i tried to remember the "good dad" and not the one how forgot how I am and almost tried to kill me, because this is what he never wanted to be, he was a good one)
But I really think that nobody can be ready for this. You still got some good old memories from your childhood (I hope so)
I'm on my phone. I don't have anything except tits. I hope they help, OP.
dont know why i have this in the YLYL folder but there it goes too
holy shit those blue balls. id smack sum ppl aswell if my balls were the size of an orbital system
Its alright man, i mean my dad was absent for most of my life, like really he wasnt there, until lately we've been getting a bit closer, he's really not much of a dad but a part of me is just thankful i at least got him, would be really devastated if he died (god forbid) cause feel we got a lot to catch up for the years we didnt talk, stay strong anon
Yup, we are lurking.
I know, OP. I'm the guy with the mom dead from cancer. As a bonus, my father died a year later when I was 17. But he was a bastard and he deserved nothing less. Not that I'm bitter.
also, hope this cheers you OP
My father was a wife beater, a drunk, and hated all of his kids and told us so during the two months per year when visited us. He cheated on my mom. He taught me nothing. He even wished his own mother eternal pain in hell...as a Christmas dinner toast. I moved out at 16. At 17 I tried to invite him out on my birthday...just to have a pint, one on one. He said no and hung up in my face. That was the last conversation I ever had with him. He lied a month later. I think it was suicide. I never really found out. Anyway, he was a piece of shit. He should have been there for me. But he couldn't care less. So fuck him.
