When this dad is annoyed with his father's behavior, he asks Reddit:
My dad is the kind of person who, if he were born 60 or 70 years later, would be on TikTok posting videos that end with him going "It's just a prank, bro!"
He always tells jokes, makes comments, and plays pranks to the amusement of himself and his similarly Boomer friends, but not to anyone else.
Three years ago, my cousin gave birth to her first child, my godson. Since she and her husband were living with us (it's a big house), I used this opportunity to see how my dad might treat my (then-) fiancé once we had kids.
I didn't like it. He started referring to my cousin like she was a maid and called her the kid's nanny. She took it in good humor, but I decided that my dad would have limited contact with mine and my wife's kids.
