A father is furious his son refers to him by his first name instead of calling him "dad" . He shared his story on Reddit's "Am I the A******?" forum. His 16-year-old randomly started to call him by his first name. "My son started addressing me by my first name instead of 'dad' — I'm not okay with it," the father wrote. "I had asked him to not call me by my first name, and he said he can call me however he wants, and I can't force him to call me dad. My wife (his mom) told me not to get too hung up on this, since it really isn't an issue. I told her that it is an issue for me, just not an issue for her since [our] son still calls her mom.". The father decided to teach his son a lesson when the teen refused to change his ways. "I sat my son down and asked him to please stop calling by my first name," the dad said. "He refused, and so I grounded him, took away his electronics and only give him access when he needs it for school. I'm not going to just be disrespected like this in my own home and told him [only] once he learns some manners will the punishment be lifted. To say the least, he's pretty angry with me and doesn't understand why I'm so hung up on being called 'dad' . My wife is now staying out of it but did tell me I'm going too far and that [our] son is just a teenager and that I should know how teenagers are". Reddit users thought everyone in the situation was being immature. "Grounding him and punishing him for being a moody teenager is probably not going to fix anything," one person added

A woman's boyfriend is furious with her after she made a scene at a friend's engagement announcement. She explained the situation on Reddit's "Am I the A******?" forum. Her friend Sarah threw a party to tell their friend group about her engagement. However, another friend at the event, N, co-opted the moment to announce she was pregnant. The Reddit poster then called N "toxic". "I looked towards Sarah and she was silent but looked really upset" . The Reddit poster decided to stand up for Sarah, but it didn't land well with everyone in the room. "I said, 'you wanted to take the attention from Sarah and her fiancé away so badly that you’re ruining their engagement dinner? You’re toxic'" . "N and her husband left and it was a bit awkward, but eventually, the dinner went back to normal. When my boyfriend and I got home he said I was an a******" . Reddit users thought the poster had a right to tell N off. "Hijacking someone else's party is tacky AF," a person said
