For me, it was much funner...

After arriving in Portugal for a holiday. We were dropped off at our pre booked accommodation. To cut a long story short, we had to leave because we felt that the property was unsafe and dirty and not at all what we had booked. The owner was unavailable.

My son is a freshman in High School. He has autism, anxiety, & ADD. Homecoming is coming up. He was afraid to ask someone at Stebbins because he's bullied so terribly (hit, kicked, called a retard, a FAG :'( and & made fun of because his last girlfriend came out as bisexual, & worse), so he asked a girl he knows from 8th grade. He even asked her parent's permission before he asked her. She said YES, got a dress,...
