My husband and I went out to eat breakfast Sunday morning with our 2 year old daughter. We had a very nice time, even Lily behaved! Well while we were there, Lily dropped her cup and one of the workers picked it up and handed it back to her. He smiled at her. Now I used to work at this same restaurant many years ago and I worked with this same guy, so I didn't think anything of it. Well the next day, I came home after I was done with my classes and my husband looks at me and he said, "What would you say if Lily dropped something at a restaurant and the person that picked it up was a sex offender and he smiled at her?" I looked at him kinda crazy but I told him the truth, I would have freaked the hell out. He said, "Well that's what happened yesterday." I looked at him kinda funny and asked him what he was talking about. My husband was looking up the people in our area who was a sex offender. Sure enough, there was the picture of the guy, who I have known for years, on the registered sex offender list. I don't know what he was convicted of, I really don't care what he was convicted of, but it literally scared the living shit out of me that a sex offender was that close to my child.
So I guess what I'm asking is, how would you react if you found out that somebody that you knew was a sex offender and knew you had kids and just never told you. Would you be as pissed as I am right now or would you be understanding the reason why they didn't tell you was because of the reaction they knew was coming?
