Sitter Date

I went to babysit for a little boy I had sat for before. I knew his mother well, but not his father. This time, the father was the one I was meeting with before sitting as it was his turn for custody that day. I showed up and began to take care of the baby. The dad was there the whole time and I was wondering when he was leaving, but didn't say anything. I got the baby to sleep and went to tell his dad. The dad said, "Good, now you and I can start our date!" The guy gave me the creeps and there was no way he was getting near me. I told him forget it and went home. The mom called the next day and told me I could now see why she left him.
