A CHILD has expressed genuine interest in when his father is likely to start acting like a proper adult.
Nine-year-old Nathan Muir has observed his father David for the last two years, focusing on his eating habits, leisure activities and social interaction.
He said: “I can at least make my own breakfast, but he still has all of his meals prepared for him. It’s usually some form of nugget.
“He spends far more time on the PlayStation than I do. Apart from that, he just sits there texting his ‘mates’, posting pathetic crap on social media and moaning about how long it is until dinner time.”
Nathan revealed he had discussed his father’s behaviour with his mother and she confirmed that her greatest achievement in life will be to ensure her son does not turn out like that.
He added: “I look at him and think, ‘being a grown up must be tough’. And so that must be the reason he’s choosing not to do it.”
