Do you have an "Uncle Grab" in your family?
I’m starting to wonder if everyone has one… you know, that person you are related to who no one trusts with their children. To explain it further, I mean a relative who likes to touch/hug/kiss a little too friendly, usually with female relatives (kids and adults).
I have an Uncle Grab on both sides of the family (and, yes, we call them that – not to their faces though). My partner has one too. My sister’s fiancée does as well. So many people I know seem to have at least one.
Everyone in the family usually knows about Uncle Grab. People will watch closely if he’s around their children at family gatherings. No one ever leaves their children alone with him. If you have to personally greet him, you do so with a cringe inside.
These people are rarely lawfully accused of anything inappropriate but they make everyone uncomfortable.
Do you have anyone in your family like this? Why do you think so many families allow an Uncle Grab to continue this behaviour? Or do you have a female relative like this? I’ve actually never heard of an Aunt Grab, so it would interesting if someone knows one.
