Did you know that if you’re the average American you are discriminating against your father, in favor of your mom? More evidence of America’s attacks on fathers:
Both the National Retail Federation (NRF) and Discover Card report that we spend far less on Father’s Day gifts than on Mother’s Day gifts.
The NRF says the average person spends about $122 on Mom and $88 on Dad. Discover Card says it’s $41 on Mom and $31 on Dad. Wives are cheaper than husbands on the respective days, too. Discover says wives spend $43 on their husbands, while husbands averaged $63 for Mother’s Day.
Hmmm . . . maybe, we need affirmative action for dads and husbands.
