One morning, a Dutch father awoke and headed downstairs to make breakfast for his family. He discovered his naked daughter with a young man. This colorful, amusing story was posted to Reddit by a user named PeekOut. Perhaps when you read the words “naked daughter” you concluded you’re going to read an accounting of a pissed off dad who’s ready to kick the poor guy’s ass. Read on and find out how it really unfolds.
“(English not my native language. please be kind) Dad here. One morning I came down the stairs, seeing this exact scene my 17 year old with a young man. Asleep after what must have been a night of ‘hard labour’. I very quietly made breakfast, went back upstairs and told my wife, son and other (youngest) daughter to be very quiet because people where still asleep. Our dinner table is on the other side of the room, about 20 feet from the couch but right in front of it. We all sat down and I yelled “YOUNG MAN” never ever I’ve seen someone wake up and move from horizontal to vertical that fast. “Breakfast is ready!” I said with a tone as if I gladly would suck his soul out of his body. Through his left ear. I pulled out the chair beside me. “Sit!” my family silent. staring at their plates. Not even twitching.”
Okay, so things are sort of weird, but there are more twists in store. He goes on to say that “it must have been the hardest 20 feet for a but naked youngster to cross,” before adding that the man was, “trying to hide his, I must say, rather impressive morning wood. My youngest daughter looking in awe at said piece of wood. As did my wife.” So there’s that. Anyway, the story continues:
“After he put on his clothes, which lay beside the dinner table, he sat down. My son (6.4′) patted him on the shoulder looked him in the eyes, sighed and shook his head. By now he was really, really nervous. You could almost smell it. In my best Russian accent: “My friend, I’m going ask you a question. The answer you give is very important….for you…” at this point he was sweating. “Do you like cats?”
Strange, yes? Instead of responding in anger, the father began to learn about their guest. The man’s daughter and the young man continued to date. About eight months later, the father discovered more about his backstory.
The young man’s mother was a sex worker with an addiction to crack cocaine; his father comitted suicide. Since the age of 15, he was left homeless for three years where he did odd jobs before meeting the man’s daughter.
He treated his girlfriend well. Instead of judging his daughter’s boyfriend, the father invited him into his life.
“The next day I gave him a key of our house. I told him I expected him home every night. Home. In the next weeks, we fixed our spare room and took him shopping for furniture. He was quite good at making things. He wanted to be his own boss; he liked building things. We saw to it that he got an education which enabled him to do just that.
“That was in 2000. Now 15 years later. My found son and my daughter have a thriving business. They gave us 3 beautiful grandchildren last year. twins. 1 girl, 1 boy”
Assuming this story is true, it’s incredible. The version presented here isn’t as colorful as the original. But its heartwarming message is clear.
