          Why Man Calls Son A ’20-Minute Dad’


          January 27, 2017

          Randy and Krissie say their son, Justin, is an “unmotivated, lazy individual.” They say Justin, who is jobless and lives with them in their home, along with his pregnant girlfriend and their 18-month-old daughter, spends his days “smoking weed” with his friends.

          “Justin’s typical day is sleep until 11, 12:00. He’ll get up and kiss his child and then he’ll hang out with his friends,” Randy says. “Twelve o’clock at night after the baby’s in bed, he’ll go up to his room and sleep. He does this every single day.”

          Randy says it’s that behavior that drove him to nickname his son a “20-Minute Dad.”

          “Justin does not like to take care of his daughter over long periods of time,” Randy says. “The quicker he can hand her off, the happier he is.”

          Krissie adds, “He doesn’t have the patience for it. She definitely misses out on having any type of relationship with him. She’s not mentioned anywhere on his Facebook like she’s not a part of his persona.”
