Take this job and shove it!

I was a college dropout. I decided to pick up some extra cash waitressing while I was starting a new business.

The waitress deal was working out quite nicely. The Couple that owned the restaurant treated me very well. I became friends with their daughter. We were close to the same age. We hung out all the time.

One day when I was at work, her Dad (my boss) asked me to show him my horse. He said I could stay on the clock, and he loved horses and it was his dream to ride one. I asked if his daughter was coming. He said she was busy.

At this point I didn't think too much of it. We went to the farm, I showed him the horse and then we headed back to the restaurant.

On the way back to the restaurant, he propositioned me. If I would have an affair with him, he would pay me.

Let me tell you, I was ready to jump out of a moving vehicle. I reached for the door handle and said "You're married! I teach Sunday School! I don't even say curse words. Let me out of here!"

He apologised and stopped the car. I jumped out and ran back to the restaurant. I was so upset. I was planning on quitting that stupid job.

I went home to try and tell my Dad what happened. I figured my Dad would pay my boss a visit. You know, maybe fit him in some cement shoes or something.

Here is how the conversation went with my Dad:

Me: "Dad, I have to quit my job."

Dad: "Why?"

Me: "My boss came on to me, and wanted to cheat on his wife with me." (I'm bracing for the yelling.)

Dad: "Oh grow up! That's life. Don't quit your job over something so stupid!"

I just stood there in shock. I got a two fold education that day.

There are dirty old men in this world, and Dads just don't understand.
