Like many girls who like to show off their tone pins Utah native Myley Mackintosh showed her off in a pair of very short daisy dukes, but her dad Scott , 52, a Utah Valley State College graduate was not so approving of having every man staring at his little girl, so why not turn the attention to him, is he could wear the same short daisy dukes and a best dad ever t-shirt he could accomplish his mission, and you know what he totally did, NATIONWIDE!!!!
Scott Mackintosh and his wife of 30 years Becky from Butte, Montana are the proud parents of four beautiful daughters and three handsome sons
I did something spontaneous a week ago today. I am shocked how fast things can spread via social media. And even more surprised how fast the story has changed in just ONE week. Within 24 hours of my wife and children posting THIS photo ….
And here is what Scott said about what drove him to show off his hot pins..and by the way this is not the first time he showed them off years ago he did it the Scottish way..
I know the world has varying degrees of what is modest and what is not when it comes to clothing. In our family we have pretty definite modesty guidelines; No mid-drift or low-cut shirts, no short-shorts, short skirts and we even go as far as saying no sleeveless shirts unless playing sports or on the beach. Having raised four daughters and three sons, I’m a bit protective. Some may call me old fashion, but I call it “A Dad who loves his daughters” (and sons too) I know some of you may be rolling your eyes and that’s okay, my daughter does it all the time.
Scott has a family night planned to have quality time with his kids, by the wasn’t going to let Myley go out with what she was wearing, however she refused to changed into something more appropriate that her cut off daisy dukes, so Scott was going to show her a lesson the best way ever!.
I ran into my bedroom as the family was loading into the car. I grabbed some scissors and cut some old worn out pants into a set of short-shorts with the ends of the pockets hanging out the bottom. There was only about an inch of material below the crotch of the shorts. To add frosting to the cake, I looked down and noticed a shirt that my older daughter had given me for Father’s Day. At the time I thought “where the heck would I ever wear this?” Wow! I just found the perfect moment! I was a bit worried about going through with this, but felt that it was “OKAY” to make this statement in the privacy of our own home. I was certain that when my daughter saw me, that would be as far as it would have to go to make the point.
As I walked out to the car I could see my daughter and my son in the back seat with their heads down focused on their phones…needless to say they didn’t even notice. I stood by the open driver’s side door for a minute and even spoke to them, but their faces stayed focused on their phones, they didn’t even glance up. They had no clue of how I was dressed. I then walked about 50 feet in front of the car to meet my wife as she was walking back from feeding our animals. (hmmm….something’s wrong with this picture. Why was my wife feeding the animals and not one of our teens? Great question.)
My wife said, “What did they think? I told her that they hadn’t even noticed, but I was sure that they had by now. As I returned to the car, it was evident that their faces were still glued to their phones and had no idea of the spectacle that stood before them. Well, I had a decision to make. This little plotted scheme did not get noticed, so my thinking that this would end at home, quickly changed to… “I guess we’re taking it to the road now.”
As we were driving and nearly to the Hibachi House restaurant, I heard a camera sound. I looked to see what had just happened at the same time that my wife was being addressed by my children saying; “Why are you taking a picture of Dad?” Immediately my son said “Oh my gosh, look at dad!” My daughter then gave her disgusted look and said, “Why are you dressed like that?” followed by “Oh well, I don’t care.”
As we entered the restaurant we were greeted by many funny looking stares from a slightly small crowd. “Wow, at least it is a small group that I am making a fool of myself in front of” I thought. Then realized we knew two of the people. They laughed and said they couldn’t wait to tell our son-in-law what they had just seen. I gave a quick explanation. They laughed. My son, daughter and wife took a couple of pictures and posted them to social media. We ate dinner and it wasn’t a big deal.
My daughter didn’t seem to care however like I had hoped she would, so the question to myself was, “Do I let it fail or take it to the next level?” Take it to the next level of course!
“OK, let’s go miniature golfing” I said. The family laughed that I might just go through with that we had planned to do before dressing like a spectacle.
As we arrived to the small amusement park, we were met with many stares and pointing fingers as I walked through the lobby and to the miniature golf area. I tried to keep up with my daughter who had expressed that it didn’t bother her, but was not about to let me stay very close to her as we walked through the crowded room. Once we got our clubs and were waiting in line for our turn to start, a couple of girls were “acting” like one was taking a picture of the other when in fact they were lining themselves up for a “Kodak Moment” …of Me! My daughter then being bold said, “If you want a picture of him, just ask, I am sure he won’t mind.” They were embarrassed and continued to act like that wasn’t what they were doing.
19-year-old Myley Andrus Mackintosh a Westlake High cool graduate currently is attending at Brigham Young University in Laie, Hawaii where probably she is one of the many girls wearing similar daisy dukes similar but not as cool as the one her dad Scott self-made one day!!
Scott, Becky and her amazing children are warming people who don’t care if they have to wake up at 5:00 a.m on Christmas to feed the homeless or shave their heads to help friends in need, like his daughter Shandi did one day.
