But that doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t do it. This article highlights a supposed Google “faux pas”, where they put a note on their homepage (they usually like to put interesting things there) saying “Call your Dad” for Fathers Day.
“This note clearly rubbed some users the wrong way, “I very recently lost my dad and while I understand the sentiment, having that ‘reminder’ there is incredibly mocking” and “Isn’t this day hard enough without my own computer rubbing it in my face?””
Really? This is absolutely ridiculous. So, I guess these same people must have called and complained for any TV commercials they saw that talked about Fathers Day. And they complained about any TV shows or movies that had a father in them. And they complained about any ads in any newspaper, magazine or website talking about fathers or Fathers Day.
No, I doubt they did. The Internet makes a great place for people to be complainers because you get to type your crazy rant without having to see the shock on the other persons face as the ridiculousness dawns on them.
