What a gift

Today, I brought my best friend to the strip club as a birthday gift, as he had mentioned that he'd never been to one before. It might have been ruined by the discovery that his daughter had a new job. FML

Oh my god! There is no way you could have known... don't feel too bad

Your poor best friend. He will probably never be able to look at his daughter the same way after seeing that.

More like FHerLife for him to find out like that. Not your fault

And F his friend's life for finding out like that.

@17: what #5 meant doesn't necessarily mean that OP's friend will look at her negatively, more likely just awkwardly. Plus, not all strippers have "daddy issues." Some choose to be one just as anyone might choose any other career, for a plethora of reasons, be it the money, they enjoy it, or anything else.

Very true, but the fact she didn't bother telling him about it says something as well...

To be fair, I doubt it's easy to tell your parents that you're going to be a stripper.

@20 not necessarily... How would that conversation go? The Daughter: Hey Dad I got a job! The Dad: Oh really? where? The Daughter: I'm a stripper! I think it's just an awkward situation no matter how he would have found out. Some people become strippers to help pay for college. That has nothing to do with the relationship with their parents.

Well, also he might have seen his daughter mostly naked..... I'd say that's pretty fml worthy regardless of his stance on her job as a whole.

Many of the people I have known that worked as strippers started dancing because it was a way to earn a substantially greater sum of money more quickly than any other options they were willing to consider. A few of them did it temporarily to solve financial difficulties while they were students. I don't think any of them expected they might meet one of their parents at work or even meet anyone of their parents friends. All came from homes with incomes ranging from lower middle class to high upper middle class. None considered it a career choice or told their parents. They were all very smart and talented people. One friend did tell her brother & sister. All of them are now in their mid thirties and successfully progressing to differing levels of success in other careers; fashion design, the recording industry, retail tech to name a few. Not all their homes were perfect but neither were they the cliché broken home TV movie many would assume.

@17, I've met, and befriended strippers before. Hell, I dated a (male) one once. Very few of them are the drugged up, broke, fatherless ones you see in media. A lot of them do it because it's easy money, short hours between college classes, or hell, because they just enjoy doing it. Being part of the bar scene isn't just for patrons - I've talked to many strippers, waitresses and bartenders that just enjoyed the "vibe" of their workplace.

Show it anyway

No, but i bet she was got a good spanking.

Hopefully from her dad and not some dude in the VIP room.

21 - Dear God, hopefully NOT from her dad!!

Looks like the daughter has more daddy issues than expected.

Damn. That's a tough situation for the father.

The worst part; the daughter knew op from past visits. And he was a generous tipper.

At least he knew all that money he spent on dance lessons, costumes, competitions and gymnastics didn't go to waste. Glass half full, right?
