Sighting on 6/25 on the Downtown 1 train in Manhattan about 3:25 pm.A nanny, about 25 years old, white, brown hair, white skirt, black polo shirt, slim, relatively pretty. A child, 6-7 years old, girl, long blonde hair, front two teeth missing, orange and pink floral dress, orange crocs. The nanny called the girl Sky, I think.The girl and nanny sat across from me on the train. They were chattering way about whatever, when the girl asked the nanny about the posters along the train. The one above me (directly across from them) was a Planned Parenthood, or some such pro-choice organization add. The girl read the text out loud, something like "I'm on the pill, but we still use condoms each time." Then she asked the nanny what it meant. The nanny didn't even seem embarrassed by the question. She just went on to explain that the poster was about sex and that the pill and condoms were two ways of not getting pregnant when you have sex.All the information she gave the girl was accurate, and all, but it was just so weird!! I would want my nanny to say to my child that this is something you should discuss with mommy when she comes home. After the explanation the nanny gave the girl asked her why the woman in the poster doesn't want to get pregnant. The nanny said there are lots of reasons why you might not want to get pregnant, like money, etc and she used herself as an example, saying that she's not married and not ready for a family. She all but admitted to the girl that she, the nanny has sex.It was just a disgusting conversation and I hope that my kids never have to have a sex talk with their twenty-something nanny ON THE SUBWAY!! I wonder if this poor girl's mother knows what she and the nanny talk about.
