NanceXToo Posted July 26, 2012 Share Posted July 26, 2012 (edited) I took my kids to the pool today, and dd (who is a couple of months away from turning 12) ran into a girl she knows from Girl Scouts, who is 14. They started hanging out together at the pool. At one point, I looked around trying to find my daughter to see if she wanted to get ice cream with her little brother, and I spotted her at the far end of the pool talking to two people, one of whom was obviously an adult male. The other I was assuming was the girl from Scouts but couldn't tell for sure from that distance. When I got her over to me, I asked who she was talking to, and she said that it was her friend and her friend's dad, so I said oh, okay. Then she proceeded to tell me she had asked him where he got his "snakebite piercings." (Type of facial piercing). Now, keep in mind that my husband is a tattoo artist and body piercer who owns his own shop, and my daughter has wanted to work with him since she was five, so these things are of interest to her, and she was probably curious whether he got it done at her dad's shop, so that isn't as weird as it sounds. She said he was telling her about some of his piercings. Okay. But it wasn't until later, after we'd gotten home, that she said to me: "You know how I told you I was talking to so and so's dad about piercings? Well, he told me he would never get a Jacob's Ladder or a Prince Albert. I said, 'What are those?' and he said, 'Ask your dad, maybe he'll tell you when you're 18.' Will you tell me? Is it the p*nis?" Uh... :confused::ack2::cursing: What kind of adult man would bring up something inappropriate like that to a young girl, a young girl he's never even met, who just happened to be hanging out with his daughter at the pool, who very obviously looks younger than his daughter no less...what an idiot!! If she had told me that while we were still at the pool, I'd have gone over and given him a piece of my mind. I really don't understand some people! I've had to have conversations with my daughter before about things I really wished she didn't know about yet, but up until now, it's always been because of something stupid a neighborhood kid said. Now I have to have a conversation like this because of something someone's DAD said to her? Wonderful! I told her if she ever runs into that girl and her dad again, she is not allowed to stay near or engage in conversation with the father, that he never should have had such an inappropriate conversation with an eleven year old and that I was not happy about it. Just, ugh! Really skeeves me out and makes me wonder if there's anything else creepy about that guy! ETA: To spare some of you who aren't already familiar with those terms and get the urge to Google, yes, they are both types of male genital piercings! And as someone commented further on in this thread, wikipedia shows graphic images if you google. Just saying!
