It’s really great when we have a good relationship with our parents, especially as we get older. For some of us, grabbing lunch or going to the movies is something that we love doing with one or both of our parents.
But when kids grow up and have their own life happening, parents can have different reactions. Some can give them their space while others can get super offended and find any opportunity to be extra dramatic about the situation.
Depending what type of parents you have, things like canceling plans with them can be a big deal or it can be the end of the world. For Justine Biticon, it’s the second option and it’s pretty hilarious.
You might have recognized 18-year-old Justine as a contestant on America’s Next Top Model. As a model, she travels a lot.
Normally it’s her dad who picks her up from the airport, only this time she was getting a lift from her mom. So she texted her dad to tell him.
Justine ended up screenshotting her father’s response and the conversation that came after she bailed on him. He went a little bit “drama-queen” on her.
She tweeted “every time I cancel any plan with my dad he does this whole thing to me and I realize where my extra-ness comes from”
In the exchange, not only did Biticon have to cancel going to the gym with her dad, but on top of that, she didn’t need a ride from him from the airport.
He wrote “Okay mija. I see how it is…First u don’t go to the gym whit me and now u don’t want me to pick u up at the airport…It’s ok…”
He then wrote “Just because I’m getting old? It’s okay, enjoy your life.” Justine responded in the most loving and assuring way possible.
In spite of the numerous times Justine assures her father that she loves him no matter how old he gets, he still continued his playful guilt trip texts one step further.
Biticon’s dad responded to her loving texts saying “It’s ok. I’m going to hold my breath until I die now. Tell your future kids that I love them. Just because they are kids of my favorite daughter”
She then plays along with her father’s dramatic ways, texting back “r u dead.” To which he responded “the number you have dial is now dead please don’t try to call again.”
He continued texting “If you text to this number again, you will be charged whit a long distance fee. Heaven is really far away.”
But if that wasn’t funny enough, her dad decided to send a follow-up text which was even better. He texted “And sadly, your dad is not there, hell is even more expensive.”
People are loving Justine’s father and his humor. Her tweet has 96,000 retweets and 289,000 likes. The tweet became so popular that she even shared photos of her dad for people to see!
Someone tweeted: “‘hell is more expensive’ lmao your pops wild.” Another person wrote, “Listen I love your dad lmaoooo.” But the best part that Biticon tweeted was at the end.
When Justine finally got home she texted her dad telling him not only that she’s home but that her friend saw him at a dessert place with his friend eating some ice cream.
Her dad, in his usual playful way, responded: “she should be ashamed to take pictures of sexy men in secret”
