*on the phone with the father* Omg! The baby took his first steps!!!!
C'mon let's play ball. Can you teach me how to throw?
I'm sorry but I have a lot of work to do.
Your son is calling...
I have to decline because I have no time to talk to him.
The father was never around during his sons' childhood. He missed many first experiences of the baby. This included the baby's first steps. Since the father was not there to see his son, he was informed through a phone call.
Hey dad I'm home from college.
The father was always too busy and caught up with work. Throughout the time when his son was growing, he never took time to bond with him and have fun. Whenever the son asked to play ball, his father constantly said no. This didn't bother the son though, he still kept a smile on his face.
Hello? Please pick up the phone.
The father continued to not have any time to talk to his son. The son once called him during work, but he had no time to waste by answering the phone.
He had grown up to be just like me.
One day, the son came back from college. The father was very surprised to see him because he did not know his son went to college due to the fact that he was never interested in his son's life. The father was very happy to see his son but it was all unexpected.
Once the father retired from work, he is suddenly interested in getting to know his son. He phones him so they can finally talk but unfortunately, his son is too busy with his life to have a conversation.
The father realizes that his son is growing up to be just like him. In bed, he looks back at his life and wishes that he made more time to hang out and get to know his son. Now he notices that him and his son are very alike because his son now has no time to talk with him.
