Dear Sassy Housewife,
What do you do if a friend of yours let you borrow what you thought was a Disney movie but really ends up being their privately made sex tape? Yes, that’s right.
We asked our friends, who are parents with kids the same age as ours, if they had a copy of a Disney movie.
They did and brought it over to let us borrow. Although the case was the Disney movie, the actual DVD was of them having sex. Thank goodness we figured this out quickly and shut it off before the kids could see, but now we don’t know what to do.
Do we tell them what they accidentally gave us or do we just return it without a word?
Perplexed about Porn
Dear Perp, (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
I’m dying to know – was she dressed like a French maid and was he the pizza delivery guy? Did she talk in an accent and walk around with a feather duster? Oh wait… sorry, that’s probably not important to this situation.
Honestly, I think your best bet is to keep it light and make a joke about it.
I would give them back the DVD and say, “I don’t think this is a Disney movie. You might want to move this collection to a more secure location.”
If they look confused, say: “You might have filmed this after a fun date night. No worries, though, we shut it off as soon as we realized what it was.”
Prepare yourself. They will be mortified. However, they will be so much more embarrassed if their children watch it and ask why Mommy was dressed as a French maid or why Daddy was delivering a pizza with no pants on.
Keep it funny and assure them that you don’t care what they do. Heck, maybe it will even inspire you and your hubby to take out the video camera.
Warning though: perhaps you should keep the Disney DVDs in a different room to avoid any sort of mistaken case.
Good luck and maybe give the DVD back to them with a bottle of vodka. They are going to need it.
