Waving at the Bus

Rain Price of American Fork, Utah rode the bus to school every day. During the past year, the bus drove by his house after picking him up at the bus stop. And every day, his dad would be there in front of the house, waving.
"When he did it the first day, I was in shock," Rain said. "It's my first day of my sophomore year."

The embarrassment was a thrill for his father.

The second day of school, there he was again, only this time Price was wearing a San Diego Chargers helmet and jersey. Day three, it was an Anakin Skywalker helmet, and the next day, swim trunks and a snorkel mask.

Other kids started to take note.

"Most of them like it, and we roll down our windows and wave. It's fun," Rain said.

His dad admits it took a lot of effort to keep it up, but said it was "a way of letting him know that we really care about him, but do something a little different." He described it as "a father's way" of saying I love you.

Rain's father wore a different costume almost every day of the school year, including a white wedding dress once. Link to story. Link to website. -via Metafilter

The guy spent $50 for the whole year. Parts of the costumes were re-used for other costumes and neighbors lent him ideas and materials. Kids would walk blocks to be picked up early and see "The Wave" and the son is fine with it. I think he is hilarious, my wife and I got a good laugh out of it.

I love the Intarnet.
"He's a selfish man insulting his son!!"
"How DARE he spend (his OWN) money on a stupid stunt!"

Get a life people, lighten a little and just enjoy things once in a while. I'm a pretty cynical prick most days, and even I can't see much fault with this.
