Oh God, no...
The Damage Has Been Done
“When I was 15 the parents of a kid in my school year drove 7 hours to save their pride and joy from watching Casino Royale on the coach’s on-board DVD player driving back from a school trip. The best part about it is that he must have asked our teacher what the film was in advance and then told his mum.” (rdc20)
“I’ve got this vision of the kid stepping off the coach in a tuxedo with a Martini in one hand and a ravishing woman in the other.

Just Checking in
“I work in a university library. One of the librarians I work with told us that some kid’s mom called the library around midnight on a Friday to ask if her son was there.
Apparently, he’s supposed to call her every night, but instead texted saying he was busy studying and couldn’t call. She asked where, he named our library. She found our number and decided to check up.
So she’s just like ‘Hi I’m ______’s mom. I just wanted to check if he was studying.’
Our university is huge and this is the biggest library on campus, so, no, we don’t know who your son is. The librarian tells her that, in probably a nicer tone than I would. So she starts describing him. ‘oh well he has brown hair and a blue backpack and—’ (cont)
Just Checking in, Cont.
Lady, jesus, we’re not going to wander around looking for your son. He’s probably out getting trashed like every other smothered college freshman. And you know what? Good for him. Librarian tells her we’re not going to look for him and that this is between her and her son.
‘But I’m his MOTHER.’
‘Yes, and he’s an adult.’
She eventually ends up asking how late the library is open and if she could drive up there and find him. The librarian told her the library is accessible only with student ID after a certain time. And, again, she responds, ‘But I’m his mother!’
‘I’m sorry, but the doors lock and can’t be opened without an ID.’
I dunno if she ever did show up. I kinda hope she did and then had to stand in the cold, waiting for the universe to give a shit.” (MangoBitch)
