Too Old Granny Barred From Prom

18 year old Grandson asks Grandmother to be his date for his High School Prom. She never had a chance when she was younger to attend one!

The Principal says, “No.”

It’s such a sweet gesture. It’s those stick-in-the-muds of this world that drive me nuts!


She won’t get carded when they try to but beer after the prom maybe that’s why

It’s the same people who suspend 2nd graders for biting a pop tart into a vague gun shape, or using a plastic disposable knife to spread jam on bread.

I shanked a kid in second grade with a spork for eating my PB&J crust. I spent six years in juvie for that little episode but now I’m a changed man I swear

if prom is centered around dating, and if dating is a romantic activity, then the principal made the right call, methinketh.

it’s not incest, but many people associate romantic activities as a preliminary step to physical intimacy. so seeing a boy, with his grandma as his date, would’ve confused the kids.

of course some kids might be smart enough to know the difference, but other kids might not. regardless, I don’t think schools are legally responsible for that kind of education. so to avoid the whole complication, saying “no” sounded like the most reasonable thing to do.


I COMPLETELY disagree. I think this sweet kid deserves a lot of respect for having the kahunas to invite his dear ole Granny to the dance!

It’s a wonderful story about ‘connecting the generations’ in my opinion. And the story was destroyed by an uptight, loser of a Principal who couldn’t see past his own nose!


to be honest, I didn’t read the article because I rarely trust links. tis my paranoia. so I’ll do a google search and read it now.

but it’s good to form an opinion before reading an article, as an article writer might be bias.

“Bryce said Eufaula High School rejected his choice of date, worried his grandma Catherine Maine might bring alcohol and distribute it to minors.”

nah, now that’s some BS right there. anyone can smuggle alcohol into prom.

I read bits of it, but most of what the concern is, is in the url. “The safety of the students”… is the concern.

Something to do with older people bringing illegal substances like alcohol. I’m thinking they think people in their 20’s or something are all just party animals who want to make trouble? So this “rule” includes everyone past that age.

Yeah… grandma gonna go to the prom just to get the kids high or drunk… totally see that happening. [sarcasm]

Safety of the students though? That’s not guaranteed anyway.
