Hello, so I'm a 23 year old college student in final year of studies getting 2 degrees in psychology and political science. Anyways, my dad and I were conversing on the phone and he just flipped on me. Like he "went off". And it weirded and pissed me off. We were talking about college football of all things, Johnny Manzel to be exact and he just feaked out on me and called me and I quote "A fat (I'm 6'1" 220, athletic and run a 5 in a half minute mile and bench 280... so yeah) F*ckin' Lazy Indian moma's boy"
And he mean't it, like he wasn't playing around.
I mean my dad and me aren't like the closest, but I thought we were okay. But I guess not, I think there's some deep seeded resentment on his part. I believe it stems from his mothers and his relationship. Also, I believe he's got a jealousy issue with my mother and I relationship and closeness.
Well, as I'm not a pushover and don't back down to abusive sh!t heads, I told him that(paragraph above), in a very calm and methodical yet smart ass academic way, then he said "oh your just like your crazy f*ckin mother, goodbye". And hung up, lol.
So I need, shall we say, some advice on what to do. I'm not planing on talking to him in the near future. But maybe I'm wrong.
I was referred here by one of my buddies I game with. He said it had good advice bout relationships. And I guess I need it.
I haven't told my mother, I'm actually afraid too. Cause the immediate consequences for him could be severe.
They are divorced but she still could affect his life in a variety of ways. So, I don't want to tell her why her son and his father aren't talking anymore. As I think it might be the final line for her with him.
Advice please. Ignore and continue to ignore or mitigate issues.
