Speaker 1 (00:24):
Thank you nephew. Subject my daddy is for the streets.
Dear Stephen Shirley. I'm married and we have one child
that's finally on her own. My dad is single, never married,
and he came over one day recently to borrow our
leaf blower. He set his phone on the couch and
went outside with my husband. His phone rang and it
was a picture of a girl that graduated from high

(00:46):
school with my daughter. She's got to be twenty four
or twenty five years old now. I took his phone
to him and asked why she was calling him. He
got his phone from me and asked why not. My
husband was giving me the side eye, like I should
mind my business, but I could see that my dad
had a sparkle in his eye. He must be dating her,

(01:07):
but won't admit it. I asked my daughter if she
knew anything about this, but she didn't. She told me
that the girl has been dating a guy for at
least four years, because her child just turned four and
they got a big house recently. She said it stood
out because she's so young and she has a nice house.
I called my dad and asked if he knew that

(01:28):
the girl had a little a little family. He said
he knows, and he has spent time with her son
and went house hunting with them. It didn't dawn on
me that my dad could be the guy that she's
been seeing until my daughter told me that no one
has met this girl's boyfriend or been to her new home.
She also said the girl doesn't post picks of her man.

(01:50):
My husband could hear our conversation, and he sternly said,
I need to let this go and leave my dad alone.
Does my dad have a child with this younger woman,
so why won't he claim her and the little boy?

Speaker 2 (02:03):
And why is my.

Speaker 1 (02:04):
Husband acting all weird about it? Well, your husband does
want you to mind your business. Yes, he's saying that
your dad has grown and he's going to do what
he wants. Stay out of it. Your husband's saying he
doesn't want any problems. And also I say to you,
don't bring your daughter into this messy mess. Get your

(02:24):
information some other kind of way if you can, Okay,
But I do get it. You want answers. This is
your father, and if this is his baby, that's something
you need to know because you might have a younger
brother or something. It's very okay that you should know that.
If that's the case, this is vital information. It's really
the only part you should be concerned with. If this

(02:46):
four year old child is your little brother. Now, if
your father isn't giving you any answers, he's.

Speaker 2 (02:51):
Fouled for that.

Speaker 1 (02:52):
If he did have a baby with this twenty five
year old and didn't tell you, it's selfish of him.
And the baby's four years old.

Speaker 2 (02:59):
Now.

Speaker 1 (02:59):
If this is the case, not only is he depriving
you of bonding with the baby, the baby could benefit
by meeting you and his whole family as well. This
is definitely not the baby's fault, and the dad, if
it is, he should step up and say something.

Speaker 2 (03:12):
Steve, I disagree with everything you just said. What letter
you read? You know what? You know sometimes you know, y'all,
y'all just you know what.

Speaker 3 (03:22):
This is why social media thrives the way it thrives,
because y'all in people business. That ain't none of your business.

Speaker 2 (03:35):
Lord, have mercy, girl.

Speaker 3 (03:38):
You would think by now you would try to stay
out of people business.

Speaker 2 (03:44):
But I got to come in behind these letters every day.

Speaker 3 (03:49):
And damn, they're trying to salvage this show from being
to call the home.

Speaker 2 (03:54):
Record on the show are now on air.

Speaker 3 (03:57):
And when we already battling against all the princes, palities
are evil.

Speaker 2 (04:01):
Now we're sitting up here with.

Speaker 3 (04:02):
Ourself, and we got the deal I got to provide
up man, let me help these people. Hell, you married,
you got one child that's finally on her own.

Speaker 2 (04:17):
Good for you.

Speaker 3 (04:18):
Check mark. My dad is single, never married. Your dad
is single and never married. Okay, he married to your mama.
But y'all have relationship. He's obviously been in your life
because y'all know each other. He came over one day

(04:42):
recently to borrow our leaf blower.

Speaker 2 (04:46):
Okay, so y'all got it. Ongoing relationship.

Speaker 3 (04:49):
Set his phone on the couch went outside with your husband.
His phone rang picture of a girl that graduated from
high school with my daughter. She got to be twenty
four to twelve five years old. I took his phone to
him and asked him why would she call it him?

Speaker 2 (05:04):
Right there? You out of line? Right there? What's wrong
with you? Did not you say your daddy was single?
The girl picture? Come up?

Speaker 3 (05:17):
You take the phone out there? Want to know why
he called her? He got his phone from me and
ass why not. My husband was giving me the side
out like I should mind my business. Hugh, that's new.
That's a brand new concept. That's a brand new concept.
Surely that's a brand new concept. Looking at her side

(05:37):
out like she should mind her business. Uh, that's a thought.
But I could see that my dad had a sparkle
in his eye. He must be dating her, but won't
admit it. Your daddy don't have to tell you who
he dating. Your daddy didn't even marry your mama. Your
daddy has never ever been married. Your daddy been like

(06:00):
he want to sixty some years minimum minimum, maybe older
than nothing. I asked my daughter if she knew anything
about it, but she didn't. The Only thing Shirley said
right in this was why are you dragging your daughter
into it? But your daughter told me that the girl
been dating a guy for at least four years because

(06:22):
her child just turned forward and they got a big
house recently. She said, stood out because she's so young
and she has such a nice house. I call my
dad and asked if he knew that this girl had
a little family. He said, he knows, Dunda. When we
come back, what does he know exactly?

Speaker 1 (06:41):
We'll have part two of your response, Steve coming up
at twenty three minutes after the hour. Today's Strawberry letter
subject my daddy is for the streets. We'll get back
into it right after this. You're listening morning show, All right,
Come on, Steve, let's recap today's Strawberry letter. The subject is,
my daddy is for the streets.

Speaker 3 (07:01):
Your daddy's for the streets, and you're right about that,
and he been for the streets. Your daddy has never
ever been married. He's never married anybody. But he has
a child and you one of them. You may have
another child, but we don't know. I don't know if
you mentioned your brother or you got any brothers or none.

(07:22):
And I got news for you since your daddy acting
like he acting in the letter. You might already have
a brother somewhere and don't even know it. Because Poppo
was a rolling stone.

Speaker 2 (07:35):
Yeah.

Speaker 3 (07:36):
Wherever he laid his hat was his home. And when
he died, all he left us was alone. Now, your
daddy ain't never been married. Came over one day to
ball leaf blow. He put his phone on his couch.
He outside talking to your husband. His phone rang a
picture of a young girl.

Speaker 2 (07:55):
Come up on it.

Speaker 3 (07:56):
You recognize the girl as a girl that went to
school with your daughter. You said, the girl got to
be twenty four, twenty five years old. You take the
phone outside to where your daddy at with your husband
and say, hey, why is she calling you?

Speaker 2 (08:12):
Your daddy said why not?

Speaker 3 (08:14):
Your husband looking at you side eye, like, hey, mine
your damn business. Shirley, mind your business, surely, because that's
probably what your name is too, that wrote this letter.

Speaker 1 (08:27):
Surely get back to your response.

Speaker 2 (08:31):
Okay, this is.

Speaker 3 (08:32):
My response to both you, Shirley's brother whatever.

Speaker 2 (08:39):
See.

Speaker 3 (08:40):
No, she don't deserve yes she does. No, you don't
listen to what's happening. First of all, you don't even
know if it's his baby.

Speaker 1 (08:51):
You don't know she's asking questions.

Speaker 2 (08:59):
Brother, if he ain't told you you have a little brother,
you don't have one. You don't have one, But she
can ask.

Speaker 3 (09:08):
This baby could be somebody else's and he taken care
of them.

Speaker 2 (09:12):
Listen to what the man said.

Speaker 1 (09:15):
Surely you had, but you keep it, pulling me.

Speaker 2 (09:19):
In because we didn't like yol we the party of one.

Speaker 3 (09:25):
He must be dating her, Oh, here we go. He
must be dating her. That could be true, but won't
admit it. He don't have to. I asked my daughter,
she knew about this, but she didn't. She said that the
girl has been dating a guy for at least four years,
because her child just turned for and they got a
big house recently. She said it stood out because she's

(09:46):
so young and she has a nice house. I called
my dad and asked if he knew that the girl
had a little family. He said, he said he knows,
and then he said he has spent time with her son.
Been over there spending time with the four year old.
That don't necessarily mean it's his. He could have scooped

(10:10):
her up here, old dude, here a sugar daddy, that's
what your daddy is.

Speaker 2 (10:15):
He ain't for them streets. Here's sugar, daddy.

Speaker 3 (10:18):
Your daddy't ever been married and with house hunting with them, oh,
with house hunting with them. So now it didn't dawn
on me that my dad could be the guy that
she's been seeing. That is highly possible. And told me
that no one has met his girl's boyfriend. This is

(10:41):
what the daughter said, or been to her new home.

Speaker 2 (10:45):
Okay. She also said the girl doesn't post pictures of
her man. Okay.

Speaker 3 (10:52):
My husband could hear our conversation, and he sternly said,
I need to let this go. You need to let
this go and leave your dad alone, which is true.
You need to let this go. Stop all this snoopid
because it ain't none of your business. You got no
rights here at all, none, because ain't nobody told you

(11:15):
that he is the father of this child that is
not being discovered now, If your daddy don't want you
to know that he taking care of this young fine
girl and this baby and then brought to my house,
he's single, he ain't gotta tell you nothing. Does my
dad have a child with this younger woman? I don't know,

(11:36):
We don't know, but he ain't told you he does.
So if he ain't told you he does. You don't
have a little brother. If so, why won't he claim
her and the little boy? And why is my husband
acting all weird about it? But see what you don't
understand is he could have claimed them. You ain't got
to post people to claim them. That's your generation, that

(11:59):
ain't his. He could be claiming him. He could be
taken care of them, but it also could not be
his boy. Just because he spent time with the boy,
the girl got pregnant, needed some help, met this sugar daddy,
he stepped in. Now he got this fine young thing
over here, and now he's spending time with the boy,

(12:21):
and then helped him house hunt. He might have bought
the house. He might have, but nothing says in this
letter that that's his child. But if it is, until
he says that you don't have no little brother, and
it ain't you damn business. Surely I want to give

(12:47):
because I don't want to be known as the home Records,
because right now we are coming across as a home record.

Speaker 1 (12:55):
We're not. We're not. That's something you made up in
your head. Leave your comments in today's letter, Sorry, on
