These socks are HUGE. Who even wears these? Dad walks by wearing socks with his sandals and you realize the answer to your question. Dads single handedly keep Hanes in business with their purchase of tube socks. Socks are uncomfortable as is, with the ability to keep sweat in your feet and produce odor for all to smell how long you’ve been walking all day. Dads prefer to show off that smell with complimentary two stripes along the top of their socks.
The tube sock is meant for working out (why would I want longer socks to work out in), but instead it has become a fashion necessity for Dads. The tube sock will go great with Dad’s sweater vests and it keeps his feet in fresh form. Tube socks are the epitome of the ultimate Dad motto: practicality. It doesn’t matter how something looks as long as it has a function.
The best part of Tube Socks for Dad is the tan line they leave. Dad’s legs hardly see daylight because of his business slacks and Dad jeans on the weekends. But on occasion when shorts present themselves, Dad makes sure not to expose his legs to UV rays by wearing Tube Socks. Those ankles are quite fragile and need to stay protected and warm.
So next time you see the college girls wearing high socks to match their head bands, keep in mind that they probably stole those fashion items from Dad.

Did you watch the presidential debate last night? Chances are that Dad did. And while you remained confused as to what was actually being said, Dad was being stating what he would do:
“If I were president, I would be doing such a better job!” No matter if Dad likes or dislikes the current president, He guarantees he would do a better job. But in true political fashion, Dad doesn’t say what he would do. But that doesn’t prevent Dad from sharing his opinion.
Much like a Monday morning quarterback, Dad appears wisest when sharing what he’d do in hindsight. “Well what I would’ve done…” “If I had been in your position…” are muttered over black coffee & bran cereal. It is this very Dad nature that makes us turn to Dad for advice. It is the reason his dinner time questions and idioms blow our minds and clarify life lessons without saying anything at all.
Dad doesn’t reserve telling you what he’d do for when you ask, rather he’ll impose his way of thinking before you even realize it. Dad is the coach you never asked for, making Dear Abbey useless. “I’d doubleknot those shoes if I were you.” ”I would’ve stretched more…” “I’d give your mother a kiss if I were you.” “I’d apologize to your teacher if I were you.” Guess what Dad? You’re not me. But always take Dad’s suggestions to heart before dismissing it, because Dad often has a point--He's already done it once when He was your age.
