A FATHER-OF-TWO has told his children that instead of a novelty tie or beer mug he would prefer the cash equivalent this Father’s Day.
Tom Logan has advised his two sons that while he appreciates their efforts in buying him a gift, they need to recognise that they are failing to meet expectations.
He continued: “Take last year’s humorous golf mug for example. I don’t play golf and never have, so it’s clearly inappropriate.
“Or the year before, when you presented me with a hand-painted money box to save pennies in. Daddy doesn’t need a money box. Daddy has a bank account.
“I really appreciate you saving up your pocket money to get me something I’ll enjoy, but the fact is that money is being wasted.
“This year, I’d rather just have the £10 to spend myself. I think we can agree that’s best practice.”
Wife Claire Logan said: “In future, we’ll suspend their pocket money for June and I’ll bank transfer that over to Tom.
“It’s no more than reward he deserves for being such a great dad.”
