TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ - Admit it - your Dad has more socks than he knows
what to do with, a tool box full of tools he rarely uses, and a golf bag
overflowing with golf balls. This Father's Day, try something different: give
Dad a gift you can be sure he will use.
Dad and Peter are on their way to another weekend soccer game away and,
as usual, Dad has a hard time finding the location.
Peter: Are we lost again Dad? Why don't you just stop and ask for
Dad: Don't worry Peter, I'll find it. I don't need to stop and ask for
directions - we'll be there in a few minutes - I promise.
Peter: Mum doesn't mind asking for directions, but then again, she never
gets lost! You won't have to worry about getting another fishing rod this
Father's Day; I have the perfect idea - a GPS Navigation System.
Hopefully, you'll never get lost again.
Dad: I never get lost Peter, I just get...temporarily distracted.
Peter: Dad, the soccer pitch was THAT way!
Even the best Dads find it difficult to ask for directions and in a
recent poll conducted with Best Buy Canada's Reward Zone Members, just over
one third of the respondents think their Dads would prefer to receive a GPS
Navigation System this Father's Day.
