Dad’s Employment

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

Little David was in his 5th grade class when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came up; fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.


David was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father.

“My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes, if the offer’s really good, he’ll go out to the alley with some guy and have a good time with him for money.”


The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some colouring, and took Little David aside to ask him, “Is that really true about your father?”


“No,” said David, “He works for The Government, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.”
