This 11 Year Old Girl That Just Won A Puppy From Her Dad By Hitting A Hole-In-One Probably Just Broke Her Home
One word: Resentment.
Resentment. Bet this guy thought it was a pretty good idea to teach his daughter's to play golf so his wife wouldn't mind him planning weekend getaways. Pretty solid plan in theory, until your prepubescent daughters are better than you at golf. Resentment.
Resentment. Bulletproof plan to offer up a puppy as compensation for a hole-in-one. That way you get the credit for giving the girls an opportunity to get a puppy, while also motivating them to play well. You get Dad points for the puppy bet while also keeping your girls interested enough to make it through 18 without bitching. Win-win, unless, you know, your daughter gets lays it up on the green and it rolls 15 feet into the hole. Now you're stuck taking care of a dog you clearly didn't want because teenage girls aren't responsible dog owners. Resentment.
Resentment. Aww, a loving father that wants to spend quality time with his daughters. What else could a wife ask for? Well, for starters, a loving father that wants to spend quality time with his daughters but doesn't lose the unlikeliest of bets without his wife's consent. It's one thing to have no choice but to get a dog, it's a whole different thing to have to explain it to your wife while telling her she has no say in the matter. Resentment.
Hey, I could be way off base here. Maybe this Dad is very appreciative of his daughter's success. Maybe this family wanted a dog. Maybe the wife won't mind not having final call on a house pet. However, when the girls are badgering their father on whether or not he's paying for the pooch, this response speaks volumes. "I sa...I sai...I said it" and "craaaazy game, craaaazy game". That's not "oh my God, how exciting" response, it's a "I am sooooo fucking fucked" response. You can hear it in his voice. His voice that sounds relatively happy, but is one crack away from audibly weeping. This girl better remember that shot forever, because that memory is going to be quite the starting point whens she's laying face-up on a couch trying to explain to a shrink why her parents split up.
