There was this brilliant message from a listener wishing all mothers a happy Father’s Day. At first I thought he was drunk and just trying to be funny. But he went on to explain what he meant by this contradictory message, and then I realised he had hit the nail on the head. Never a truer word was spoken.
He never knew his father and was brought up completely by his hard-working mother.
His mother was everything to him. How could he wish his father a happy Father’s Day when he had not seen him, touched him or heard him?
His father had abandoned him and his mother and gone for good.
