Dad Makes Hilarious Sign for Son To Hold When Wife Returns From Business Trip

Share

Ah, dads. They’re the jokesters, the tricksters, and the world’s greatest pranksters.

Between my dad and my grandpa, there was always someone pulling a funny at our family get-togethers. Whether it was a whoopee cushion or a cube of ice down my back, I couldn’t hide from their hilarity.

‘Tis the season to celebrate dads and all their humorous “haha” moments. When dad pulls a prank, we all know we have one of two choices.

We can get mad, and get even. Or we can just go with it, roll our eyes, and laugh it off.

After all, dads aren’t around forever. Why not let them have their fun, and laugh along with them?

BERLIN - AUGUST 31: Oliver H., 42, a married federal employee on 6-month paternity leave, reads to his twin 14-month-old daughters Alma (R) and Lotte at his home on August 31, 2010 in Berlin, Germany. Under German law married couples may take 14 months parent leave, to be divided between the two spouses, during which an individual receives two thirds of his or her normal income from the state, up to EUR 1,800 a month. In order to encourage more fathers to take paternity leave, German Family Minister Kristina Schroeder is seeking to lengthen parent leave from the current 14 months to 16 months, though German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble sees the measure as too expensive.

One dad from Oklahoma played the ultimate prank on his wife when he made a very unique sign to welcome her home from a business trip in Arkansas. With his son, Daimen, in tow, Brandon Nielson headed to the airport, just waiting for the moment Barbara Nielsen would come through security.

Daimen was in on the joke, too. In fact, he was the focal point.

As Barbara headed to meet her boys, she saw what may have been the most embarrassing greeting she will ever read. Written in bold black letters across a piece of cardboard were words many of us may not have been able to laugh about.

Daimen smiled from ear to ear as he held up the sign. I can imagine his dad standing somewhere off to the side, phone in hand, as we watched mom’s reaction.

“Welcome home from prison mom,” the sign read. I know at least a handful of moms who might’ve been furious to find such a non-welcome waiting for her.

But Barbara seems like the kind of gal we can all learn from. “Brandon is a jerk…” she wrote on Facebook.

Except her post didn’t end there. “…this is the sign Daimen was holding when I got off the plane.”

As her comment was paired with a “LOL” and a cute airplane emoji, I’d say Barbara more than laughed along with the two most important men in her life. Her good sense of humor reminds us all to lighten up a little, especially when it comes to the dads we love — despite their taste in jokes.
