BJ'S BLOG 08/28/13 "Strip Club Issues"
Yesterday during Group Therapy, I read an email from a Rock-A-Holic named Glen who was having an issue with his future son-in-law.
On Monday he was out celebrating a recent promotion with some coworkers at a strip club. Things were going well then after an hour and half of being there, he noticed his daughter’s fiancé at the strip club…alone! On top of that, he got three lap dances in a row while there!
He says he isn’t a prude and thinks strips clubs are fine for bachelor parties, birthdays, or even promotions (which was why he was there in the first place) but he thinks it’s odd that a guy would go by himself on a Monday afternoon. This hasn’t settled well with Glen and is wondering if he should talk to his daughter or his future son-in-law about it since they will be walking down the aisle in six weeks.
If I was in Glen’s place, I wouldn’t have an issue with him being there but I may be concerned about the financial ramifications. How often does he go to the strip clubs? Also, if he gets frequent lap dances that can really put a dent in their budget.
Also, the other thing he has to think about is how is this going to affect his daughter if he tells her because not only will he be telling her he saw her boyfriend receiving lap dances but she will now know her dad was at a strip club as well. Does she really need to know all this?
Glen can pull this guy aside and as long as nothing inappropriate is happening or he’s not spending money he doesn’t have on this, it shouldn’t be a problem.
