Dad keeps son's 'sarky' birthday card for 28 years and uses it for hilarious revenge

A son has shared the brilliant birthday card he was given by his dad, which just so happens to have been sent with a swift dose of karma

When it comes to birthdays, people often get really excited about the cake and the presents.

The cards get a glance as they are opened and then are put to one side as you move on to more exciting things.

They later end up in the recycling bin along with the torn wrapping paper and gift bags.

But one dad had decided not to throw away the birthday cards from his 42nd birthday, instead he put them away in a box for safekeeping and 28 years later, he was left feeling very pleased with his decision to do so.

Fast forward to 2020 and on his 42nd birthday a chap named Rob Witt was presented with a "sarky" hand-drawn birthday card from his father - the very same card he had made for his dad 28 years ago.

At the age of 14, Rob made his dad a birthday card which read: "Hey, EVERYBODY! He's 42!

"Of course... we won't draw attention to it will we?

"Happy 42nd birthday dad, from Robbie."

The dad had stashed the card in a keepsake box all those years ago and after stumbling across it in the loft, decided it would be absolutely perfect to use for his son's upcoming 42nd birthday.

So he made a few minor tweaks to the design, switching around the names and adding his own message.

It read: "I guess if you wait long enough, what goes around comes around!"
