I am in a bit of an uncomfortable situation. I am a live in nanny for a nice family with a 1 year old son. I work full-time and often they will go out. The mother is a medical resident so she works overnights a lot and the father works crazy hours as well. The other night I was babysitting and he came home at about 1130pm. The baby was asleep, of course, and I was watching some tv about to go to bed. He comes in EXTREMELY drunk. We are around the same age and I don't look down on him for drinking as I enjoy a nice cocktail once in awhile myself! Anyway he sat down next to me and we started chatting and all of a sudden he tried to kiss me. He told me he is so attracted to me, he feels neglected by his wife and basically he wont tell her what happens between us. I tell him hes drunk and to go to bed.
I go into my room and lock the door and go to sleep. He stays up for awhile but eventually goes to bed.
The next morning he just said hello and that was it. We havent said anything more to each other. I really dont know what to do. I really like these people and I adore their son. I know that if this were my hubby I would want to know that he tried to cheat on me. But at the same time no good can come out of telling her. I feel so uncomfortable and am thinking that I have to quit.
Any suggestions, advice?
