The Question Club
In this scenario, you have a little 5-year old daughter. One night, you have plans with your SO and you can't find a babysitter. Your boss overhears your plight, and says, "My daughter could babysit. She could really use the money. She's good with kids. She's 22". Your boss is smiling, waiting for an answer. What is your answer?
"S-sure. When can she come over?" Maybe this will help me get promoted
"Um...no offense, but I'd think I'm going to keep looking"
For those of you who said yes, the doorbell rings, and your boss' daughter is there. She's heavily pierced and tattooed, and wearing a tube top and mini skirt. Her eyes are bloodshot. Her purse is in the shape of a Jack Daniels' bottle. You let her in, and she gushes over your daughter. "What a cutie she is. She's going to get laid a lot when she's older. Up to her cooter in boys and girls, I bet. Won't you, you little tart?" she says in a cooing, sincere voice. You're going to be gone for 4 hours. Do you entrust your daughter to this chick?
Yes. I'm sure it'll be fine
No. I cancel my plans
For those of you who left your child with the girl, you come home later to find that the boss' daughter gave your daughter a tattoo on the back of her neck. It says BITCH. "I know, totally hot, right? She's badass now. She's going to be the most sassy girl in her class now" Your daughter's longish hair covers it up. Your daughter seems happy with the ink job, but said it hurt a lot. What do you do?
"That is pretty cool! This is awesome. I'm giving you a bonus"
Kick the living shit out of her, pulling out at least one piercing
Hold my tongue and pay the girl. I don't want it getting back to my boss that I wasn't supportive of his kid
Call the police
Daughter's still alive. Check. Babysitter did her job. I pay her. As for the tat, these things happen. C'est la vie
