A dad wears shorts -- short shorts -- to teach his teenage daughter a lesson. On Sept. 12, MSN reported that Utah dad, Scott Mackintosh, decided to wear inappropriate denim cutoffs to show his daughter just how terrible she looks when she wears them. While this may have been super-embarrassing for Scott's daughter, Myley, he feels as though he taught her a good lesson.
"I simply did this in hopes that my daughter would know of my great love for her and that she knows of her great worth. Now that it has gone viral, I hope that young women everywhere understand their great worth. I will look like an idiot any day if that point gets across," Mr. Mackintosh said.
When a dad wears shorts to embarrass his daughter, people think it's a great lesson and Scott has received a fair share of support from parents around the country. Teen girls tend to wear clothes that show off way too much of their bodies and it's important that they understand that it's not necessary. Obviously Scott doesn't want his daughter's butt cheeks (or worse) hanging out of her shorts because that attracts the wrong kind of attention -- and it's not cute.
It definitely takes one cool parent to do something like this and even if Myley was upset, she'll get over it. Her dad is now an internet hero and hopefully she won't be wearing her little denim cut-offs any more.
If a dad wears shorts as short as his daughter and goes out in public he deserves a medal or something, doesn't he?!
