A Utah dad wanted to show his distaste for his teenage daughter's inappropriate clothing by going out for family dinner in a pair of short shorts.

Scott Mackintosh, a father of four girls and three boys, wrote in a blog post about how his teenage daughter's disagreement about modest clothing resulted in his unusual dinner attire.

Mackintosh wrote that his family has defined guidelines for modest clothing and short shorts or skirts are on the list as no nos.

Earlier this month, when the family headed for dinner and the daughter insisted on wearing short shorts, Mackintosh said he "decided to make a small" statement on how her short-shorts maybe aren't as "cute as she thinks!"

He wore a pair of shorts with the pockets showing and a T-shirt saying "Best. Dad. Ever." and went out for the evening. His daughter pretended not to be embarrassed, he said.

Mackintosh said he isn't sure his child got the message, but "my daughter will always know that her dad loves her and cares about her enough to make a fool out of himself."
