If it's good enough for the dog, it's good enough for me.

Remember the good old days when nannies would just have affairs with the husbands?

Now they shake the babies and poison the missus.

I like Prudie's response: "You sound like an insufferable person, you should have been a great match with them."

Bet they let that biatch eat cake too.
 
2014-02-18 02:17:04 PM  
Are you sure it was the toilet water, and not the left over takeout?

Wouldn't that be poisoning?  Which I think is criminal, yes?

I was a live-in nanny in college. The dad was an insufferable douche who would walk around in only boxers from the time he came home from work till the time he left again in the morning.

I used to want to tell him, there's a reason your children are all huddled at my door waiting for me to wake up and let them in first thing in the morning. You are creepy. Even your offspring sense it.

"Making people ingest fecal matter without their knowledge is indeed likely to make people ill"

So, if they know they're doing it, we're good?

Huh, the more you know.

Yeah, the body has ways of shutting that down when it's legitimate poisoning.

FTA: So for the sake of the environment, please let's stop purchasing bottled water and start recycling that toilet water

Um.... does she know how water treatment plants work?

They left out a crucial piece of information: how rich are they?

Why is this being linked to on Washington Post? They just reprint Prudie from Slate. What happened to linking to the original content?

2014-02-18 02:25:52 PM  
as stated later in the column by a write in doctor....thats really not that much of an issue, health wise and fairly unlikely to cause them health issues that last longer than a couple of days.

Maybe subby doesn't read Slate. Or someone submitted the Slate article and it didn't get green lit. The content is there so what does it really matter? WP licenses Slate's content and it's not someone's lame blog that just links to the actual content. Not sure why it is an issue in this context.

Why would you advise this idiot to get legal help?  People like her should be made an example of -- if she's willing so self incriminate, why give her any reason not to?

Dear Prudence, I used to be a live-in nanny for the world's most annoying, inconsiderate, intolerant and rude couple. I stuck through for three months, but had to quit for my own mental health. During this time, I occasionally took revenge by sneaking into their bathroom and dipping their toothbrushes in the toilet. The wife kept a drink bottle by the bedside table and I also put some toilet water into it as well. It made me feel better about my crappy situation at the time but now that I've quit (and regained some of my sanity), I'm consumed with guilt. I heard from a mutual acquaintance that both of them are having some kind of health problems - exactly what, I don't know - and I'm worried I may have caused this. Should I call and confess? We didn't exactly leave on good terms.

No, you shouldn't feel bad. If dogs drink out of it how bad can it be?

That last letter got me a little.

I hear that all the time. "There's so much help out there if you just ASK for it!"

No there isn't. And be prepared for everyone to judge you horribly just for asking, and a very long time before you can get anything that even remotely looks like  real help.

But I guess that's an irresponsible thing to say to someone who is considering suicide.

wait, you mean it's a good idea to be civil to people? especially ones that have access to your life?

if you think this is bs, keep acting like a jerk to nannys/waiters and other folks "below" you.

you'll notice a frequency in getting weird 24hr bugs like this. and probably a good bout of food poisoning twice a year.

we're all people, it doesn't take much to ruin a persons day. so it won't take them much effort to ruin your week.

No, that is for consenting adults.  The thing we use to punish criminal acts is called "jail" or "prison" depending on the severity.

Having and affair with the wife, on the other hand...

I submitted a totally bizarre and unbelievable but very true story to Prudie 6-7 years ago - she printed it word-for-word, no edits! Set off a pretty long thread on Slate. I was pretty shocked it was printed at all. Her advice was shiat, though.

The questioner actually calls it a "crappy situation."  That's not a red flag, that's an artist signing their canvas.
