This Is Weird, Right?Ok, so the other night, a neighbor who I barely know but sometimes speak to his wife and have started having his daughter babysit on occasion, knocks on the door at about 6:30 at night. He asks if he can use me as a reference for a Security Clearance because you have to put some people who can verify where you live. I say sure, let me just write down the info. He says, "What's up anyways, girl?" I say, "Not much, just helping my son with his math homework." I wanted to convey that I was busy and did not want to engage in small talk. I don't like the way this guy talks to his kids, I think he's kind of mean to them. So, next thing I know, he has walked in and is pulling up a chair next to my son and butts in on the homework lesson. I fill out the card, give it to him feeling like "What the hell is this guy thinking?" But, obviously, as I'm alone with my kids I don't want to **** him off, but I want him the hell out of my house. "Ok, thanks for the help with the math. We've got it from here." He looks surprised and a little bit perturbed and then he looks at my son..."You ok? You got it? You want me to stay?" Mind you, my son has NEVER talked to this guy before. I don't even know his first name. My son looked to me and I could tell that he was uncomfortable as well. I said, "No, that's ok. He and I like to do the homework together, plus I have to get the other kids squared away for bed. Bedtime is in half an hour at our house." He looked flustered and like he wanted to ob
So, my question is, this is not normal behavior, right? I told my son and my other kids to stay away from him and if he tries to talk to them when they are playing outside or something they need to tell me straight away. Can anyone tell me if there is anything else that I should do or anything else that I should be watching for?
