IntuitLife, People & Culture 061920_FATHERS_DAY_SOCIAL_POST-BLOG_HEADER-FF

This Father’s Day, to celebrate all of the amazing hard work, love, and support that goes into being a great father, we polled our Intuit family around the world, asking kids, “what does your dad do that makes him the greatest?”

From mastering dad humor to being a stellar negotiator…or even a penguin, the responses were heartwarming and very entertaining, to say the least. Thanks to all the dads out there, from the Intuit family (and our kids).

“Haha, don’t ask me why I’m a penguin! She thinks penguins are the coolest animal in the world and her life’s aim is to become one. She doesn’t know how things work and that’s ok.

“Our dad is the greatest because he is very supportive, handles situations tactfully, and is extremely hard working.”

“My dad is the greatest because he is always willing to read whichever book I want and as many books as I want.”

“My dad is the greatest because he’s always helping me out with hard things to do, like homework, and I really appreciate that and also because he’s always in a good mood when I’m around.”

“My dad is the greatest because he always explains something to me during our cycle rides every day. It’s now become our little tradition where I bug him with a new topic every day and he explains patiently through his mask! One of the recent such topics was how Jeff Bezos started Amazon and the concept of network effects.”

“My dad is the greatest because he says the most hilarious and random things — he’s a big goofball. I’ll give you an example. His name is Doug, and ever since I was a kid, he would always say, ‘you know that my name backwards is Guod (said like gūd)? Do you know why that is? It’s because I’m a really guod guy!’ Then, he would always follow up with an emphatic, ‘HA!’ He’s always very pleased with his corny dad jokes, which honestly just make them even more funny.”
