Something that bothers me.

We’ve been “friends” for years.
I worked with you for a decade.
During that time, we had an artistic association as well.
My daughter joined us on occasion with our musical efforts.
I was blind to it at first, but no more.
Your friendly “hello beautiful” remarks at first seemed just that.
Then, it was arms around her shoulder, and, one time, when a little drunk,
you called her a “sexy thing”.
We were in a group at a bar the other night.
You walked up behind her and gave her a neck massage.
She has not, so far, seemed upset or bothered by these things,
just passing them off as “you being you”.
So, I am talking to her to ask her feelings.
If she will not make it clear to you that this is inappropriate,
then I will.
Either way, we are at an end,
my friend.
If you could see me now, you would see murder in my eyes.

  1. Oh…I’m with you on this. The “sexy thing” comment and the neck massage made ME cringe. I was a young girl once and I remember those kind of men and their inappropriate comments. My girls would both shoot down any sleaze who thinks he’s in with a chance – and although it’s harder to spot with someone considered a family friend, it’s even more important to point out to her.
