Father’s Day is this weekend, and while some people look up to their dads and want to be just like them, not everyone may agree with that. But, according to a new survey, becoming your father may be inevitable.
A new survey of 2,000 Americans with living fathers conducted by Omaha Steaks,
- 68% of men say they feel more like their father every year.
- The average man becomes their father at age 37.
- Traits they get from their dad include:
- 37% say they take their grilling seriously because of pops.
- 35% are handy because of skills they learned from dad.
- 28% are really into corny jokes because of their dad.
- 25% grunt when getting off the couch.
- 25% fall asleep on the couch with the game on like their father.
- 22% mute TV commercials like their father did.
- When it comes to Father’s Day, the average person plans to spend close to $100, although 10% will spend $200.
- While most Americans say they’ll be taking dad out for a nice dinner, or getting them some sort of tech for a gift, it turns out that’s not necessarily what they want.
- Top things dads want for Father’s day include:
- An ice-cold beer (36%)
