Dad Steals Son’s Video Games, Sells Them, Attains “Douchebag” Status

12 Aug

The Father of the Year award will be a tough vote this year. So many possible choices. Here is a late entry, Joseph Phillips of Cincinnati who stole his kid’s video games and pawned them for next to nothing.

A 28-year-old man ended his weekend visit with his 9-year-old son on Sunday by stealing his child’s video gaming system and games, according to police and court records.Joseph Phillips then went to a nearby game buy-back store and sold his son’s things for about a 10th of their value, according to the Delhi Police Department.

That makes no sense because now when he goes to visit the kid what the hell are they going to do the whole time? Talk? Every try to talk to a 9-year-old? It’s all “cartoon this” and “my balls are getting hair” that and it’s really pretty boring. Video games are the best bonding option a dad could hope for.

Phillips, 28, told police that he is addicted to drugs and has a long criminal history in Indiana.

I’ll take “things you don’t tell cops for $200″ Alex. Now I see how he’d cope with visiting his son without video games. Drugs.

Ahh drugs. Is there anything they can’t do?

    Shortly after I discovered my ex-friends drug habit I discovered that she pawned a stack of my vintage video games (ie not replaceable) for drug money.
    Oddly enough, we don’t speak any more.

      He is not the only father to steal and sell his young son’s video games, but it doesn’t make it any less disgusting.

        Sadly, Sandy, you are correct but this dude is one of the few that essentially did it right in front of his son.

    well we know he ain’t a toker, otherwise he’d be playing the games with him. mmm, he’s not a meth addict as the 9 yr old is too old for dora backpack, sooo, I mean WTF is he addicted to? Coke? Does anyone still do coke anymore?

    oh crack, yeah that’s it, douchebag stealing rap sheet female semen implanter got a crack issue, maybe this dude is “the leprechaun” ergo…

    as the young woman says at the 1 minute mark

    chris, help me, the newscaster catches herself after say “fucklore” what is “fucklore?” thank you.

    • nOOb Dad August 12, 2010 at 1:33 pm #

      Fucklore is old time pornography from the 1700′s. And he must have an unknown addiction because the mom left the kid with him alone. I think he is lying.

    but the logic works right?

    weed = play video games with son
    meth = why go on a schedule visitation, eff that
    coke = no one does the 80s anymore
    crack = nothing else to buy, unless he huffs paint

    My brother used to work in a pawn shop that instituted a policy under which they would no longer accept baby items (strollers, larger toys) and the like because of the number of times they had mothers coming in looking for the stuff the junkie fathers were pawning for drug money.
    God I wish I was making that up.
