I am a hooters girl, I am 21 years old with a 3 1/2 year old daughter. My ex has never had anythig to do with my dd and I have supported her by myself her whole life. We are going to court soon but I have been told that since he has not been around and she doesn't know him, I could get supervised visitation. He told me if I go for supervised visitation, he would bring up in court that I work at Hooters. Of course, they will already know this as I have to fill out the forms for child support and they need all my work info. But he said he is gonna make me look bad cause I work there. I am a full time college student, I have my AA degree and I am about 2 semesters away from my Bachelor's degree. I am going to be a high school English teacher (that does not mean this will be perfectly written lol). My job allows me to work to support my child, go to school and still spend time with her. I am able to work 2, 9 hour shifts and we do ok for money, it is also nice that it is mostly when she is sleeping so while I do miss sleep, I don't miss time with her. Do you think it will look bad that I work there? I mean, it's not like I'm a stripper or anything, really we are covered more then many girls our age you see out in public, but I know there is a stigma about "Hooters Girls". Oh and just so you know, I don't do the Hooter girl boxing or do the calenders or anything, I just work there. What are your opinions?Answer Question

There is nothing wrong with bettering yourself, working hard, and being a good mom, which is exactly what you are doing.

Let him use it in court and get back to us and let us know if the judge was able to stop himself from laughing his ass off at your ex. Seriously hooters is not a bad job it is a restaurant. People seem to think all these jobs will get held against them. Even if you where in calendars and doing the boxing it would not matter. Your job is legal and the only job that has been supporting your kid. Even if you where a stripper your ex would not have a leg to stand on. If the job is legal and paying the bills than you are doing what you have to do to support your kid which is more than what he is doing.
