😱 Deadbeat Dad or Misunderstood Father? You Decide! 🤔

Well, well, well... This story has more twists and turns than a soap opera! 📺 Our poor protagonist (let's call him 'Sad Dad') has been through the wringer - a cheating ex-wife, a son who wants nothing to do with him, and a move across the country to start anew. 🌎 But just when Sad Dad thinks he's got his life back on track with a booming business and a new family, guess who comes calling? 📞 That's right, the long-lost son... but only for money! 💸 The audacity! 😤 Sad Dad puts his foot down and refuses to pay for his son's tuition, but he's happy to shell out for his adopted daughter's med school. 👩‍⚕️ Cue the angry phone calls and divided opinions from friends and family. 🗣️ But wait, there's more! Sad Dad reveals his struggles with PTSD and his attempts to connect with his son over the years, only to be met with rejection. 😢 So, what do you think? Is Sad Dad a heartless monster or a misunderstood father trying his best? 🤔 Let's see what the internet has to say about this juicy drama! 🍿
