One great thing about my dad, which I think particularly demonstrates his "no bullshit" attitude, is his absolute refusal to participate in Father's Day. For years we did nothing to celebrate the day, and then finally one year I decided to give dad a call to wish him a happy Father's Day. Here's how that went:

me: Happy Father's Day!

dad: Heh. So, seriously, why are you calling?

My father's disdain for Father's Day has surpassed reluctance, annoyance, and even sarcasm. He has reduced the day itself to a joke. That's pretty amazing. My dad's pretty great.
