With Father’s Day coming this Sunday, some Pops were polled on fave gifts and pet peeves…So, a Dad-Poll being better than a Dad-Bod or a Dad-Joke, we offer the results here.
The poll out for Father’s Day found 75% of us will celebrate this year, including 58% who plan to buy a present. But the most popular gift involves FOOD.
The top five Father’s Day gifts in 2022 are a special meal with family or friends . . . a gift card for dad . . . clothes . . . tools . . . and a greeting card.
A nice meal together is also the top thing dads WANT this year. An experience is next, like tickets to a concert or sporting event. Then it’s gift cards, gadgets, and tools.
The poll also looked at a few dad habits in 2022 . . .
1. Where does your dad spend most of his free time? The top answers were the living room . . . the backyard . . . and, quote, “anywhere as long as there’s a TV.”
2. What’s the top thing you’ll find in an average dad’s “man-cave”? A TV was the #1 answer, followed by a comfy chair. A fridge and sports collectables also made the list.
3. What’s your dad’s top pet peeve? The top five are leaving lights on . . . changing the channel . . . touching the thermostat . . . leaving doors open . . . and dishes in the sink.
4. And finally, which TV dad is your father most like? The top answers are Tim Taylor from “Home Improvement” . . . Homer from “The Simpsons” . . . Danny Tanner from “Full House” . . . Jack Pearson from “This Is Us” . . . and Uncle Phil from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.
This Dad got his secret wish granted for Father’s Day; to be a dope Mix-Master for a day!
