Anne.Uumellmahaye: 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.


Well to be fair they wernt even my kids so there!

She should feel bad. If she had cleaned the toilet properly this wouldn't be an issue.

I used to swirl my older brother's toothbrush in the toilet all the time. He never got sick.

Peki: 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.


This. Once you admit that you aren't suicidal at the very moment, it'll be 2 months for the next appointment. At which point, you're only at the beginning.

And, if you actually are suicidal, they'll send a firetruck and a cop. While I know some very cool cops and firemen, none of them know how to help you.

I've actually tried to use the EAP at work. Now, I just get enraged whenever I hear a manager saying how awesome it is that we care enough to provide EAP.

Depends. How bad and what kind of annoying?

How dirty was the toilet? There is probably just as much bacteria in the ice at your average fast food joint.

Your Black Muslim Credit Union: How dirty was the toilet? There is probably just as much bacteria in the ice at your average fast food joint.


or say... on your significant others private parts when you go down on them when they are NOT fresh from the shower?

I used to worry that roommates or their guests would do that to my toothbrush, but then I'd tell myself "Nobody's actually going to do something like THAT." Heh. First NSA spying, now nannies germing up toothbrushes: what's the next paranoid ideation that'll turn out to be real?

Speaking of which, are there are any Lexington KY Farkettes stalking me because they don't have the courage to contact me directly? If so it'd be better if you jumped straight to shooting me: there's no need to find out the hard way that I'm just as bad in person and a lousy lay to boot. Also the police tend to suspect ex-lovers or people who already know the victim, so a total stranger who just shot me from the bushes would probably get away with it. (As long as you didn't brag about it online and there were no tracks in the snow leading right to your house, of course.) Pretty please? You'd be removing an irritant from Fark and avenging all the women I've made suffer all these years: if anybody deserves assassination it's The One True TheDavidTM!1!

Not that I haven't made at least as many men suffer, albeit few of them in an intimate fashion, just that men don't typically feel the same kind of need to strike a blow for the Brotherhood. Or do they? Maybe I should be so sexist in my invitations. Come at me bros! And let's not forget the T-words I've called mentally ill. Etc. Etc. Etc. Come to think of it there are probably far more Farkers who might find reason to gun me down than who'd suffer from my absence; it's not like anybody really cares or my Denture Fund wouldn't still be empty.

As the saying goes, I'm sick & tired of being sick & tired. There's another month of winter left, my whole body is sore from coughing because my sinuses have decided to drain down the back of my throat, I spent the whole day in bed from a migraine and couldn't go out to buy anything for my cold symptoms, and as winter days go today hasn't been too bad. And I'm only 50 so there are like 20 more winters to suffer (and make others suffer) through, unless somebody steps up and does the necessary. Please? Think of it as a public service.

Anyway.

When you know the dog drinks from the toilet you flush it after you use it, right? And clean the bowl pretty often? And dogs' immune systems are different anyway: the ex's feist seems to thrive on shiat from her indoor cat and ferrets.

Maybe humans are weakened from not eating shiat as other creatures do. There could be a need just waiting to be filled: first deodorant, then "feminine hygiene," then iWhatevers, next maybe Fecal Immune Support. ("In several tasty varieties!") FIS brownies, FIS gelcaps, FIS-fortified hot cocoa mix...

I hope there were other reasons for you thinking the guy was creepy because if it's not good for kids to see their own family in boxers then every single parent at the beach must be creepy for exposing their children to men wearing shorts.

Trail of Dead: elbandito: All "advice" columns are fictional.

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.

Blech.  You just know he thought this was some sort of come on.

There's a weird sense of entitlement that comes with having help.  Some people get the boundaries, other people just don't.  Weirdly the latter are usually the people that don't realize that the housekeeper knows everything that goes on in your house.  If you are a jerk, then this is like having a megaphone.

That reminds me of a story...

We used to all hang out in this one guy's basement.  You know, late night beer parties and such.  More than a few times, I'd go by the kitchen on my way out and find the stepfather standing at the fridge in his underwear.  One time I actually said to him, "dude...  Really?"  His response was, "It's my house. I can do what I want."

Okay, fine.  Be that as it may.  But you should consider having some respect for your guests.

offmymeds: QueenMamaBee: offmymeds: 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?

If only I had a camera that day.  I was at my buddies house and he has a dog that actually resembles those dogs outside chewing on a frozen log of his shiat, he couldn't quite snap that bad boy in half so he choice to just toss his head back and let gravity do the work.  I started dry heaving I was so disgusted.

I remember my brother was visiting for Christmas. One of my sister's was there with her niece. She had a little teacup and was bringing my brother cups of "tea" that he dutifully drank.

After three or four cups of "tea", another sister was wondering where the niece was getting the water and followed her. She was getting it from the toilet. The niece was barely past the walking stage, so she didn't know any better. Everybody had a laugh about it.

That's all I have for toilet water stories.

I was about 7 or 8 years old at a sleepover (all girls) and at some point that night my friend's dad wandered in to ask us to keep it down. He was in a shirt and a pair of obviously well-aged tighty whities. It was horrifying, and creepy as fark.

It was a room full of 8 year old girls, it was late, it was dark, and he just gave off bad vibes constantly. I'm not saying it was flat out wrong, I'm just saying I, as an 8 year old who didn't know this guy well, was weirded out. My parents never walked around in their undies in my house.

the_vicious_fez: Egoy3k: the_vicious_fez: I was about 7 or 8 years old at a sleepover (all girls) and at some point that night my friend's dad wandered in to ask us to keep it down. He was in a shirt and a pair of obviously well-aged tighty whities. It was horrifying, and creepy as fark

Did he touch you? Did he ask you to touch him? Did he take photos of you? Did he expose himself to you? No?  Then the only person being anything was you being a drama queen.

It was a room full of 8 year old girls, it was late, it was dark, and he just gave off bad vibes constantly. I'm not saying it was flat out wrong, I'm just saying I, as an 8 year old who didn't know this guy well, was weirded out. My parents never walked around in their undies in my house. That's what bathrobes are for.


Before I respond I'd like to say that I was pretty harsh in my post and I regretted it after clicking add comment.

What i mean is that he probably got straight out of bed, threw on the shirt in concession to there being guests and told you to quiet down.  I'm not sure though, maybe he was a complete pedo but it seems to me that most of the creepy vibes people get about dads are because of the constant fear mongering in the media. As an uncle with a young niece I've gotten the looks and the double checks enough that I know exactly what some people think when they see a man and a child together and it disgusts me whenever time with my niece is ruined by idiots.

I was bringing my niece home from soccer practice once and my brother called me and asked me if I would take her for supper because he was late leaving work and wouldn't be home until after supper time.  Being the completely terrible role model that I am I took her to McDonald's.  So we got our meals and drove to a rest stop to eat.  The next thing I know I'm explaining to a police officer who I am and what I am doing with this girl while another officer is terrifying my niece and asking her questions.  Some busybody at the rest stop had hear my niece call me by my first name and called the cops because I clearly wasn't her father. Which is why I reacted poorly to the post.  People assuming that male interactions with children are inappropriate is not good and isn't going to lead to good things.

Can everybody chill out about the "men wear whatever they want in the comfort of their home" thing?

He was creepy. For many reasons. One example was that he only ever wore boxers, nothing else. Another example was that his kids didn't like him. I punctuated it by saying he was an insufferable douche. I was just relating a story about being a nanny, holy hell.

MycroftHolmes: durbnpoisn: Anne.Uumellmahaye: 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.

That reminds me of a story...

We used to all hang out in this one guy's basement.  You know, late night beer parties and such.  More than a few times, I'd go by the kitchen on my way out and find the stepfather standing at the fridge in his underwear.  One time I actually said to him, "dude...  Really?"  His response was, "It's my house. I can do what I want."

Okay, fine.  Be that as it may.  But you should consider having some respect for your guests.

You weren't a guest.  And he was sending a pretty clear message about what he thought about you.  You were just too dumb to get the message.

Sorry, that should have read 'you weren't his guest'.

/actually, that guy in general was creepy as fark. Never liked him.

OK, that is different...and creepy


Meh.  I don't see any difference if it was later in the night.  Get up annoyed at the squealing, yell at the kids, go back to bed.

Some people just don't care what other's see them in.  Nothing creepy about that.  Hell, on the random occasion someone walks in on me when I'm on the john, I laugh at their reactions(and give them hell the rest of the day as if I was offended, because ribbing people is fun!).  I get dirty at work, I'm not ashamed to stop by the store and pick up milk or eggs on the way home. I get particularly filthy, and I strip down to boxers when I walk in the door.  I don't flaunt my beer gut or anything, but it's just the thing to do because you don't want to get machine oil and grime on stuff because it never comes out of anything.  Meh, whatever.

It may appear gross to an onlooker, but it is not innately creepy, it's utilitarian.

3pm though, everyone's gathered around the birthday cake waiting on the special girl to blow out the candles, that's a different story, and very creepy.

Of course, anything can be creepy with the wrong maneurisms or outright leering or something, but that's all also creepy fully clothed.

No wife beater or Hanes shirt? Okay that's a little bit creepy. But the underwear itself is not. Single people living alone walk around nude. Men and women. The boxers ARE common courtesy.
