Slacker & Steve's Blog



Creepy Grandpa

Yi!

An unhappy grandpa wrote to Dear Abby complaining that his granddaughters have started giving him the cold shoulder. Turns out, his granddaughters are uncomfortable with the way he rubs their shoulders and neck as he has done since they were young.  He thinks he’s being grandfatherly, but they obviously disagree.

Steve thinks that as the child gets older rubbing should turn into hugging. Slacker doesn’t think it’s that abnormal because he has children and understands that as a parent he longs for that physical connection no matter how old.  He also says touching or rubbing can be non-sensual, because physical attention equals affection.

Is gramps bein’ a creeper?

I have a problem with someone touching me in the first place (essentially, don’t get in my bubble) and that doesn’t change when it comes to family members- you should see when my mom tries to hug me; it rarely works out in her favor (haha).  However, I don’t think he’s being creepy (it might be a little inappropriate due to their age perhaps)- especially if he says that he feels his attentiveness comes from his grandfatherly heart- but I think his granddaughters should tell him. It’s as simple as that.

Stay classy!
