A FATHER has stunned his family by suggesting his daughter ‘get a sense of frigging perspective’ after a pop group split up.
Bill McKay, 43, resisted the temptation to console his 13-year-old daughter Eleanor after listening to her whining and looking at her pathetic, tear-stained face.
He told her: “It’s not even a band. It’s just some stupid, fancy-haired little pricks. Their breaking up means nothing. Nothing.
“Have you taken a look at what’s going on in Africa today? I haven’t, but I’ll bet you it’s fucked up.”
He added: “Life is nothing but a constant stream of disappointments. Get used to it, princess.”
Eleanor said: “Mum’s having an affair. That shut you up, didn’t it?”
