Fathers furious at being summoned from shed.




Fathers are demanding an end to Father’s Day, after they were forced to leave their gardens to awkwardly receive a token gift.

He does not want for wryly funny paperbacks. The annual tepid celebration of the more emotionally distant parent caused considerable inconvenience as many fathers had to come into the house to be handed a Nick Hornby book and a card with racing cars on.

63-year-old father Stephen Malley said: “I don’t like Nick Hornby, racing cars or emotion so this was a triple-decker annoyance.

“I wasted at least five minutes on acknowledging the ill-considered offerings before I was able to return to the wooden structure in the garden where I basically live in voluntary isolation.”
