One of our WTF?! Team Members (let’s call her “L”) remembers being 15 and meeting an adorable JTT look-alike. He told her he was also 15. He was cute and fun, and mostly – he liked her! They snuck into a movie, they split a popcorn, and later – with her heart pounding as if she was in a Sweet Valley High book – they shared a slimy-tongued kiss in the empty parking lot behind the movie theatre. And then… SHOCK! HORROR!… she found out he was really 13 YEARS OLD! How dare he?! He was only a child?! She couldn’t make out with a little boy! EW EW EW!
L never spoke to him again.
Whereas those two years seemed like mountains to L – I mean, really, he had just finished his middle school graduation and she was a sophomore! – they didn’t put her right on the borderline of committing a felony.
We wish we could say the same for the commenter behind this weeks Comment of the Week!
