      Red says something like: I think the word you’re looking for is WTF? When I was in high school the rule was “no public displays of affection”. So you couldn’t hug, kiss or hold hands in school. But no one tried to say you couldn’t hug a friend if they flunked a test, didn’t make the team or got dumped by their latest heart throb. I realize that society changes and rules and laws will follow, but actually putting on the books a 2 second limit on hugs? All I can say is WTF!

      I speculate that the reason for the rule is there were to many people making out in the hall and when they got called on it their response was “we’re JUST hugging”. And their parents’ responses are “my kid says they were just hugging and they would NEVER lie.” So the school just made it an across the board “no hugging more than 2 seconds.” Heaven forbid they would say no hugging at all because that would intrude upon the students’ “rights”. Yes, America, teachers and educators can’t think of anything better to do with their time….

      Can you tell I am an EX teacher who was FED UP with the BS system and rediculous parents?

      I am sure the principal of that school finds it rediculous they have spend time setting a policy like that(to fend off parents threatening to sue for ‘accusing’ their kids of lying or violating their rights to text porn, grab their boyfriend/girlfriend of the moment’s ass in the hall, or refuse to follow a rule) rather than concentrate on EDUCATING the ever-so-friendly-innocent-and-huggable students.
