Embarrassed Son Asks Dad To Stop Waving At Him In Front Of School Bus, Regrets It For The Next 170 Days

Published 6 years ago

Teenage years are the time when we’re most ashamed of our parents. It was no surprise when 16-year-old Rain Price of American Fork, Utah asked his mom, Rochelle, to stop his father from waving at the school bus as he’s riding off. Little did he know, the dad, Dale, overheard their conversation and accepted it as a challenge.

From that day, Dale dressed up in a different costume every single day for 170 school days and waved at Rain’s school bus every morning. The 16-year-old was in shock at first: “You don’t want to see your dad dressing up in a wedding dress, waving at you on the bus,” he told the Metro, with his dad responding “I hope this lives with him for the rest of his life.”

During the 170 days, Dale never wore the same costume twice and eventually became known as the  ‘Wave At The Bus Dad’. He says he relied on his friends and neighbors when picking out costumes and that the whole school year of dressing up only cost him about $50. Rochelle eventually created a blog documenting all of Dale’s outfits and soon enough it went viral.

Rain is 19 now and is serving as a church missionary in Liberia, West Africa, and we’re sure he’ll never forget his dad’s dedication. Check out Dale’s costumes in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
