I feel juuuuust a little sorry for that one teacher

First, you're dating someone with the maturity of a thirteen year old. He won't take you anywhere fun. Then he dumps you for the hot cheerleader. And then YOU go to jail.

Oh, right...because he IS 13.

Geez.

Are there no available adult men in Utah, that this kid looks that good to the female population?

Alternative thoughts:

--We have found the one characteristic that will keep two women who work in the same building from talking about who they are dating. Yup--"He's so cute, he's underage!" just isn't going to happen in the ladies' lounge. So at least they were THAT smart.

--Did all the little 12 and 13 year old girls at the school have crushes on this kid?

--Are we going to institute some kind of mental health screening before we hire teachers, to make sure they're not in the career because they see middle school as a dating pool?

--Perhaps every classroom should be equipped with one of those calendars they have in bars and liquor stores: "You must have been born before this date in 1990 to date the teacher".

--Maybe the school district should have mandatory "singles nights" for all the unattached staff. A chance for them to say, "See all these people? They are adults. You can go out with THEM. Or people who look and act like THEM. Because they are grown-ups."

--If your potential boyfriend is afraid to go into the teacher's lounge, or worried his mom might find out that his girl is older than she is, maybe you should just focus your energies on something other than your social life. Like visiting a shrink.

Gah. Get a grip, people! Stop crapping in the sandbox!

ICK!!!!! Man oh man...what a world we live in.

As far as this one goes though - "Are we going to institute some kind of mental health screening before we hire teachers, to make sure they're not in the career because they see middle school as a dating pool?"

I'm pretty sure you can do all the screenings you want BEFORE hiring and it won't do a lick of good. In my experience it's teaching in the public school system that brings out all the crazies in teachers. Honestly, I believe we've set up a system that not only requires many of the children to be medicated, but the teachers as well.

*N*O*T* to excuse those teachers AT ALL. I just don't think pre-screening would do any good. They probably just need mental health professionals on staff to do routine maintenance. Of course, if we were willing to spend the money on that, maybe we could just get the public school teachers a secretary and avoid some of the stress related illnesses...oops, I'm way off topic now.

I'll just go back to my original "ICK!!!!" And funny on the teacher's lounge thing. And dropping for a 13 year old thing. And the never taking you out - can you imagine???? ICK!

Mary Kay Letourneau was married, so singles night wouldn't actually work.

How could any adult find a teenager appealing? We ALL remember our teen years, right?
