The problem isn’t just that you said it to your boss; it’s that you said it about another person at all. Anyway, yeah, you did indeed insult his daughter, and you need to talk to him and correct the record.
And then there’s your boss, who sounds pretty creepy in the way he talks about his daughter and with his crudely appraising “I bet you had that problem! Something like this would probably help: “I’m so sorry for my comment the other day about Jane’s interest in dating.
That meant I had to meet the ninth grade standards, including the Naked in School requirement, and my Middle School didn't even have the Program. But my Daddy says he's even more proud of me than when I was his smart girl. ""We're easy to tell apart, 'cause I like to dress in blue.""And I like to dress in pink.""… I was still in the internet study, so I asked them to switch me to the "exposure" group but they said they couldn't do it without my parent's permission, and anyway I could only do it if another girl wanted to switch to the control, and nobody ever did.
Fortunately my guidance councilor found a loophole. He comes to see me lots of times when momma's not in town, and he brings his friends. I was so disappointed I cried, and then the nice man said he would make a special exception just for me! My parents were ruining my life with their stupid rules about not dating boys or having fun.
My grades and test scores were outstanding, but the entire effort ran afoul of the new state laws on nudity. Her brother was there and he came into the room and some of the other girls asked him to show me his thingy, 'cause they new I never saw a real one before.
All girls are required to meet sexual performance standards at their new grade level before they are promoted. My momma gets all mad when she sees me and calls me names like "slut" and "whore." She thinks those are bad things. Jerry was nice to me and said I could be his girl friend, but my mom found out and my daddy spanked me.
Her mother's and my schedules are fluid, so certain activities don't always fall into logical parenting categories -- which is how I came to spend a recent Saturday at our local Victoria's Secret.
It’s not just indicative of ancient ideas about girls and sexuality (we must protect our precious daughters’ precious virginity!
I’m not sure why I was so repulsed — after all, it’s nothing new that parents are strict about their daughters and dating.
But starting now, at ages 3 and 5, I hope my children start to absorb the message that dating is positive. And that no matter what, there are few decisions that are perfect, or mistakes that are not ripe for learning.
I am a female employee in my late 20s working for a large Fortune 500 U. One day a couple weeks ago, my boss was talking as usual about how his daughter is very attractive and wants to start dating.
