Unless you’re in a relationship or you have a best friend with whom you have a prom pact, you might be bugging over who you’ll take as your date. No matter how stressed you may get, you cannot lose sight of one critical question: is your potential prom date nightmare material? If you are asked to the dance in one of the following ways, slowly back away, block him/her from your phone, start eating lunch in a secret location and DECLINE THE INVITATION IMMEDIATELY.
He write the message with lighter fluid on your front lawn and sets it ablaze. Your dad

She tattoos the message to her forehead. Come on. That’s just the least clever and the most embarrassing. And highly indicative of an unstable personality. If you say yes, you’re definitely going to be at the receiving end of a marriage proposal. Fair warning. She’s in it for the long haul.
She leaves dead birds in your locker/backpack/desk. Unless you’re a cat. Then, this is very flattering and par for the course. If you’re a human, this is gross and creepy. And not normal. And there isn’t any prom-themed pun that can redeem it.
No. Just No.
He hacks into your Netflix account and cancels it and texts, “now you have nothing else better to do.” This is an inexcusable offense.
