What would you do if your daughter said this?

I work in a specialty stuffed animal store. Our main demographic is 10 year old girls but obviously we get all types in there.

A while ago I had a little girl come in and she was asking about Justin Bieber. She was probably about 12. She asked if we had anything with Bieber on it and I said no. I asked her, jokingly if she was a fan and she goes, "Justin Bieber, I'm such a slut for him."

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY. I was just like, "Ok" and went somewhere else. If that were my daughter, I would have smacked her. Of course, her parents were no where in site, she was shopping herself.

  • Oh man. If it were MY daughter and I heard her say it I would ask her why she said that and if she understands what the word means.

    There's a good chance she overheard someone else say it and is repeating it because of that. I did the same thing when I was younger
    and my mum called me out on it. I had no idea what I was saying was wrong or offensive, I heard it casually said by someone else and thought it was just a thing people said.

    I hope that's the case in this situation and not that a 12 year old girl is actually aspiring to be slutty or a groupie.

  • I might, however, sternly reprimand her for her atrocious taste in music

  • If I said I was a slut for Justin Bieber I'd probably be arrested for statutory rape. I mean, how old is that kid?

  • Well, I couldn't have said anything to her regardless because I was working and for all I know her mother encourages her to say things like that...

    I mean, even if she was a kid, she was still a guest in the store.

  • I would not approve either, but it's probably a slang that the kids are saying. I doubt if she has a full grasp on what it means. How could she? there's plenty of adult women who don't seem to really understand what it means.
