Someone once told me to act like what you plan to be. So I try to be a little bit better than what I am.
Okay, so I’m kinda freaking out.
I’m babysitting, and this man comes over to fix their dishwasher. Which initially freaked me out, because they didn’t tell me anyone was coming, but I let him in. He was really conversational and friendly. He asked me if I babysit a lot, and what I charge, and where I babysit and stuff. Then he told me about his four year old daughter and how he needs a sitter for her sometimes and he said that he was interested in hiring me. He asked for my number, and I gave it to him. Like, then he kept on calling me babe, and I just really didn’t like that.
After he left, I just felt really odd. Like, it didn’t feel right.
I feel bad because I feel so sexist… Like, if it was a woman, I wouldn’t think twice. But because it’s a man… I feel strange.
I looked up sex offenders in my area, and according to the first name he gave me, nothing popped up. But still… I just feel kinda weird about it.
