Starting a new job can be exciting, but it can also come with some unexpected challenges. One woman (20F) found herself in a sticky situation when her assistant manager, Sherry (45F), tried to set her up with her son, Travis (19M). Initially, she was open to the idea of meeting him, but after a disturbing revelation about Travis's behavior, she changed her mind. Now, she's left wondering if she's in the wrong for turning him down. 😕
