He Took His Parents on an All-Expenses-Paid Trip to Taiwan, but His Father Complained About Everything, From the Hotel to the Plane to the Food

A man recently wrote online about how his father had ruined a family trip to Taiwan. The man paid for everything, but nothing was good enough for his father. Now, the man has planned a trip to Bangkok without him. Here’s his story.

The man wrote, “A bit of background on the first time I took my parents overseas with my own money. We went to Taiwan, which was a pretty unchallenging country for us: it’s clean and has good public transport, we speak the language, and the food isn’t too different from what we usually eat.”

“However, my dad constantly complained that I was not feeding him, even though the only thing we did was eat and eat,” he added. “He was so excited about the local food, but when he got there, he hated it and picked on everything.”

Nothing was good enough for the man’s father. He complained about the plane and the hotel, saying it was not as good as the trips his friend’s kids paid for.

The man admitted the trip was not luxurious, but it was the best he could afford. That night, after everything his father said, he cried to himself in his hotel room while his father snored in the bed beside him.

As the holiday continued, so did the complaining. The man had a terrible time due to his father’s negative attitude. He tried everything, but nothing would satisfy his father.

However, there was one bright spot for the man. His mother was having a good time despite his father’s lousy attitude.

When they all got home from Taiwan, the father dared to suggest they all go to Bangkok for their next trip together. The man could barely believe what he’d just heard.

The man did want to visit Bangkok, and so did his mother. So he bought two plane tickets and kept them a secret from his father.

His mother told him that she would deal with his father. She was upset with how he acted in Taiwan, and she knew they’d have a better time alone.

The man feels guilty about going without him. However, he said his father was too stubborn to be reasoned with. Besides, his mother thinks he needs to learn a lesson after his lack of gratitude for the last trip.

Was he right?

The man was torn about his decision. Sure, he couldn’t tolerate another trip with his father. However, he felt terrible about excluding him, too. He went online and asked for a second opinion from an internet forum.

One commenter replied, “A vacation is supposed to be restful; he did not help with that in any way. I worry about your mother and hope he does not take it out on her.”

Someone else chipped in to add, “Let him know that because he had such an awful time when you went to Taiwan, you won’t be taking him on any more trips until you can afford the same standard of travel as his friends’ kids. (Unfortunately, that day will never come.) Until then, you will be taking your mom on budget holidays to places he doesn’t like.”
