Group chats are where the magic happens. Only the best memes, links, and conversations happen there. Although, we're not wrong to say that sometimes it can get a little stressful, especially when 50 messages are flying through at the same time. For this dad, the pressure really got to him!
Dads always complain about this day and age of technology. Still, we have to credit them for trying their hardest to accept that today is completely different from their telephone days. There was no Whatsapp or emojis. For this dad, he had no choice but to express his feelings over his overwhelming family group chat. Allison D'Orazio, a graduate student at Wake Forest University, shared her experience with her stressed-out dad. Allison, her mom, and her 19-year-old sister Alexa are all involved in the chat. So, that leaves just one man standing to deal with the intense femininity that overrides every conversation. According to Today, Allison revealed that she was "sending pictures of every single stitch I was doing on a sewing project." That's a lot of 'dings.' It all kicked off from there...
Allison explained, "The three of us are very extroverted and send random stuff all day long... He's so kind and engaged with our lives — he's like the perfect human being — and I think it was stressing him out that he can't respond to all the messages." That being said, Allison knows her dad all too well. Dr. Thomas D'Orazio ultimately took the plunge and had to get something off his chest. The 51-year-old took time, effort, and courage to face the three powerful women, "I can't keep up with the pressure of always having to lol or like or heart everyone's random thoughts, pics, and amusements. For all future texts: I love them, laugh at them, or like them, unless it's bad, then I dislike them. In perpetuity. I can't live with this pressure. I'm out." He signed it, "a grumpy guy from the pre-cellphone era." Allison "burst out laughing" and posted the screenshot to Twitter. Her hilarious and honest father gained 400,000 likes. One user commented, "Dude, network burnout is a real thing," while another replied, "True story, in the early days of texting, my father-in-law thought LOL meant 'Lots of Love.' So you'd say something like 'Sad news to report, our beloved pet Rusty died,' and he'd respond with 'Oh no, LOL!'"

Allison clarified to her followers and fans of Mr. D'Orazio that he did not actually leave the group chat. He remains connected with his family, no matter how many emojis are thrown his way. We applaud Mr. D'Orazio for light-heartedly confronting his family. At the end of the day, it all comes from a place of love. He's definitely a girl dad.
