This book is soooooooooooo funny!
The story behind it is that the book author Justin Halpern had a 2 year long distance relationship with his girlfriend; he lived and worked in LA and she lived in San Diego and wanted to move in with her so he found a job that will allow him to live in San Diego, so he let his apartment in LA go and went to San Diego to surprise his girlfriend but instead of her jumping up and down with joy she broke up with him.
Justin found himself homeless and the only thing he could think of was to move back in with his parents. While he stayed at his parents his father was saying the funniest and weirdest things to him so Justin created the Twitter account “Sh*t My Dad Says” and a phenomenon was born.
The nice thing about the book that it’s not just quotes from his dad but also has a number of stories about his dad that he collected from family members.
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
Put the rake down. I don’t wanna sit around watching you ‘give it your best.’ Either stop sucking or get the fuck out of the way
See, you think I give a shit. Wrong. In fact, while you talk, I’m thinking; How can I give less of shit? That’s why I look interested
This one is a pearl of wisdom:
Don’t focus on the one guy who hates you. You don’t go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog shit
This one is my favroite one, soooooo true!
A parent’s only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed
Loved it and would recommend it for a good laugh.
