Top 10 Most Annoying Things Dads Do

Dads are great and all, but they can be really annoying. Let's be real: we all love our dads, but there are moments when they have this unique ability to get under our skin. Sometimes it feels like they've read a handbook on how to be irritating, right? Whether it's their knack for terrible dad jokes, their uncanny sense to interrupt you at the most inconvenient times, or their mysterious skill at always knowing how to push your buttons, you're not alone in wondering if it's a universal dad thing.
The Top Ten
1 Listen to bad music

Gotta say, my dad isn't annoying at all. But music is one thing we disagree on. We both love classic rock, but when it comes to my choice of electro or his choice of '80s pop, we don't mix.

My dad likes a lot of heavy metal bands that annoy me (I don't like metal), and some weird bands that grumble. But some of the bands, like Queen and The Beatles, are good.

My dad has the worst taste, and he hates everything I listen to.

2 Obsess over sports

Oh my God, sports are just people running around with a ball, and they get paid too much money. Every basket a basketball player scores, he gets paid the amount of a school teacher's yearly salary. And an athlete makes more than the president. So throwing 3D circles is more important than educating kids to change the world, and running a country?

My dad likes tennis a lot, but so do I.

3 Snore

My dad is way too loud when he talks in general, and so much louder when he's on the phone! He chews with his damn mouth open all the time. I always eat downstairs because of it!

He's so loud on holiday. I fell out of bed and thought his snoring was a crocodile in my bed!

People snore all the time, but my dad snores way too loud and way too much!

4 Yell when they get angry

My dad yells at me every other week.

So annoying. They should shush.

5 Argue with mom

Ugh, this is the worst! One time, my mom and dad were fighting over bills. I was sitting there eating a sandwich, watching them, and I was like, Please.

6 Go crazy when you hang out with guys

This is so my dad. He thinks the entire male population is rapists! Other than boys from pre-K, or those he knows through my parents, he freaks out!

My father always acted really possessive anytime I developed a crush on a guy. If I talked to a guy on the phone, he would be all "WHO ARE YOU?!" and whatnot.

My dad will call me gay if I do this.

7 Be loud

My dad screams at me whenever he's furious.

8 Sing

My dad turns up the volume on his favorite songs and then yells the lyrics at the top of his lungs. Sometimes, he would randomly sing for no reason, even with earbuds in.

9 Treat you like a maid

My dad forces me to wash the dishes, even if my hands are dried, cracked, and peeling.

He makes fake excuses, so I have to sweep the floor.

And he forces you to clean your room.

10 Not display compassion

Ok, so I saw a mouse in my room and freaked out. My dad says the next time I see him, throw something at him. But mice are living things that suffer and feel pain, and he doesn't understand WHY I don't want to kill him. He puts in poison to kill them, but I don't want him to die. I want to catch him and then let him out, patch up the holes he's entering through, and we only see him when it rains so he only wants shelter, and that's what everyone wants!

The Contenders
11 Mimic you when you whine

If my voice raises in the slightest, he'll start fake whining, and it's so annoying. It's not how I sound!

12 Eat all of your food

He eats everything I save for a special day and eats anything.

My dad ate all of my Flaming Hot Cheetos and Halloween candy.

I wish I could buy a fridge locker box because of this.

13 Walk around in only their underwear

My dad sleeps in underwear and wakes up to eat breakfast. After that, at 12 in the morning, he takes a shower.

My dad does this all the time! It's so annoying. I don't need to see him in underwear.

My dad does this in the morning. It's so awkward.

14 Act as if they're always right

If you say he's wrong, he will fight for his rights and never stop until you give up.

15 Force you to eat food you don’t want

I am on a sweets-restricted diet due to a history with high blood sugar, so I have to really watch my sugar intake. My dad, however, constantly keeps offering me desserts every single day, even though I've told him no several times already!

Once, my mother bought a plate from this local BBQ joint (which has since closed down for good). As soon as I was about to get up from the table, my dad put potato salad and coleslaw on my plate, and I couldn't get up until I finished it all.

16 Fart in public

Okay, my dad likes to find out the days when my nose is stuffy and I cannot smell anything. He then goes to the store with me and farts in a big crowd of people and runs. Everyone can smell it, but not me. So people back up or even leave, thinking it was me.

My dad's farts sometimes smell horrible.

17 Spy on your computer

My dad keeps staring at my screen when I'm on YouTube.

18 Talk over the radio

In the car, when a cool song comes on, my dad just talks over it!

19 Smoke

Ugh, my dad smokes. When I tell him to stop smoking, he complains.

It's bad for your health. My dad does it all the time.

20 Have total domination over the TV

When I was a kid, my dad would change the channel and watch shows that I didn't want to watch, and I would literally complain about it.

When I'm watching TV, he changes it. I said I was watching something, and he says, So?

OMG, so right, he does it all the time.

21 Throw tantrums when they get mad

Yes, oh my God, he just starts throwing things and swearing.

Once my dad got mad, and he picked up a chair and smashed it into pieces.

22 Complain about your life too much

He's like always breathing down my neck and needs to know everything. He gets mad when I don't tell him something when if I did he would get mad at me. He gets mad at me either way.

23 Harass you

Dude, how do you know this? My dad is just like all of the points you mentioned on this website.

My dad is so annoying, like, so annoying. He hates stuff I like. Sometimes, I hate him.

24 Not put the toilet seat down after they use the toilet

Once, when I was a kid, my dad did this. When I sat on the toilet, I nearly fell in the bowl.

25 Emit body odor
