Dad's Email Rant Tell Kids How Disappointed He Is in Them

As a parent, part of your job is to accept that your kids will screw up. But 67-year-old Nick Crews finally hit his tolerance limit, and decided to tell his three grown children (in an email that's gone viral) how utterly, bitterly disappointed he is in them. Dubbed by the media the "Crews missile," the email details the many ways the retired British naval officer finds his offspring lacking. Dad explains that he has "had enough of being forced to live through the never-ending bad dream of our children's underachievement and domestic ineptitudes," adding that "it makes (their mother and him) weak that so many of these events are copulation-driven and then helplessly to see these lovely people being so woefully let down by you, their parents." Not shockingly, two of the three kids aren't speaking to Crews at the moment; his elder daughter said that she was hurt by her father's words -- but also admitted that much of what he said was true.
