“Had my first boyfriend in middle school and brought him home one time. At one point my mom made him bring me my clean laundry. And by that I mean a single pair of pink High School Musical underwear. I cried from embarrassment but he was actually pretty cool about it and comforted me. Then he cheated on me,” one user shared.
“My dad, influenced partly by Bad Boys 2, decided to mess with my boyfriend on my first date by acting like a hard-ass. He filled a whiskey bottle with tea, and when he answered the door he chugged the whole thing while staring my boyfriend down, then tried to break the bottle over his own head. The date was canceled due to the hospital trip, and I became known as the girl with the bat**** insane father. ‘Don’t concuss yourself this time’ became the running joke once I was able to get a date again,” one user shared.
“When I was in seventh grade and went to a youth conference with my church. All students got a free t-shirt and people were signing each other’s name on them. This one girl signed mine dotted the I with a heart and left her number. Well I get home my mom is doing my laundry and finds said number. Yup you guessed it, my mother called the number and told the girl I needed to focus on education and didn’t have time for girls,” another user shared.
