US Student Asked Father Not to See Him Off to School and Regretted His Request for Next 170 Days (PICTURES INSIDE)

3 years ago



When was the last time your parents saw you off to school? College students most certainly don’t recall those days. However, some kids at high school still do. At least, Rain Price of American Fork, Utah has already suffered the “parental embarrassment” at the sweet age of sixteen. The Typical Student team just couldn’t help but tell his hilarious story.


How the “Parental Embarrassment” Began?


When Rain started his sophomore school year and took his first bus ride, his dad Dale Price was waving him off. That seemed embarrassing to the kid, so he begged his parents to never do this again. However, things didn’t go well after the Rain’s request, since his dad not only kept waving at his son, but also took it to the next level.

Dale's hilarious sense of humor wouldn’t let Rain get away with his request. So, starting the following day, Rain Price would be sent off to school by a dad dressed in a different costume! And that would go on and on every single day for 170 straight school days! That’s what you call deliberation!

After the pictures of Rain’s dad appeared online, the incident went viral. As told by Bored Panda, Rain recollects how he felt about his father’s weird behavior:

"When he did it the first day I was in shock. You don’t want to see your dad dressing up in a wedding dress, waving at you on the bus." Today, Rain, 19, serves as a church missionary in Liberia, West Africa.

Soon after, Dale got the name of the 'Wave At The Bus Dad.' No wonder, as he was coming up with the WEIRDEST costumes on a daily basis, never repeating the same look twice! You must be thinking he spent lots of money to maintain his joke for the whole academic year. Wrong! According to Dale, he only spent about $50 during the whole year, mainly relying on the items borrowed from neighbors and friends. To share the family craziness with the netizens, Dale’s mother Rochelle put up an online blog to document all husband’s outfits.
