59. Not happy, just not life threatening
OK, part of this story we will never know. Was the other girl looking at this particular story or not? We won't ever really know. But the teacher, in the course of the day, took this away and found the story. She reported it as was the correct thing. Everything after that is just like the real world.

Let's talk adult consequences. Let's take this out of school and into the workplace. How would it be any different if I had done this about a coworker? I would have been fired. Is it a crime? No. But definitely actionable in a workplace.

Do we live in an age where people are less tolerant of such things? Yes. And, because there are enough nutty people out there, we need to be careful.
