Crass and Jaded Mother Farker: "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.
LarryDan43: Bet they let that biatch eat cake too.
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?[4.bp.blogspot.com image 400x267]
Bslim: I need to see the nanny before I render judgment.
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.
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.
MycroftHolmes: omeganuepsilon: 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.YOu really do not see the difference in how you approach an late teenage\early twenties male and how you approach a bunch of 8 and 9 year old girls? You honestly think that going into a room full of 9 year old girls in your underwear is a acceptable. Grab a robe, grab a blanket, only stick your head in, whatever.
the_vicious_fez: That's what bathrobes are for.
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 farkDid 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.
Anne.Uumellmahaye: 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.
James Rieper: 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.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.
The One True TheDavid: Ghengis_Socrates: Resident Muslim:Passive aggressive people like this should be whipped.I mean honest to goodness cat o'nine tails.No, that is for consenting adults. The thing we use to punish criminal acts is called "jail" or "prison" depending on the severity.You mean the means we have of rewarding criminals with room, board, TV, gay sex and medical care.

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.
stewbert: Peki: That last letter got me a little.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.
