    (A three-year-old boy is playing with some dolls at the day care center and separating them into families.)

    Boy: “And this is the mommy, and this is the daughter, and this is the other mommy, and this is the son and the daughter, and this is the other mommy–”

    Worker: “Where are all the daddies?”

    Boy: “They’re in jail.”

    (I am a supervisor in a daycare. It is Christmas Eve and a child’s mother has arrived to pick him up.)

    Mother: “So, is it okay if I send in his presents with him tomorrow so he can open them here?”

    Me: “Tomorrow? It’s Christmas Day tomorrow…we’ll be closed.”

    Mother: “What? You’re closed tomorrow? But what am I supposed to do with my kid?”

    Me: “Oh, do you have to work tomorrow? That’s unfortunate.”

    Mother: “Work tomorrow? No, I booked it off a long time ago. Why are you closed tomorrow? You’re always open!”

    Me: “Christmas Day is the only day we’re closed all year.”

    Mother: “Well I don’t want him under my feet on Christmas!”

    Me: “Um…”

    Mother: “You don’t want to baby-sit, do you?”

    Daddy’s Little (Working) Girl

    | Texas, USA |

    Caller: “Are you hiring right now?”

    Me: “Yes sir, we are hiring for the infant room.”

    Caller: “Oh, that won’t work. My daughter is 6.”

    Me: “Are you wanting to bring your daughter to our daycare facility?”

    Caller: “Yes. How much do you pay?”

    Me: “Well, I’m not at liberty to discuss what the employees get paid. But, for your daughter’s age, we charge $95 a week.”

    Caller: “So, she will get paid $95 a week?”

    Me: “No, sir. That is what we charge for you to bring your daughter here for the employees to look after, teach, and have play time.”

    Caller: “So she can’t get a job here? She won’t be making any money? F*** it. I’ll call someone else who will give her a job.”

    (I work at a daycare center and am teaching a room full of two year-old children to memorize their parents’ or guardians’ names and home phone numbers.)

    Me: “So, what’s your daddy’s name?”

    Little girl: “Robert!”

    Me: “And what’s your mommy’s name?”

    Little girl: “Dammitjulia!”

    (Needless to say, “Robert” had a little talking-to when he came to pick up his daughter.)
