I'm sure we've all had experience with those parents who are just a little TOO involved in their kid's lives. You know the ones, they not only know all the intimate details of their child's life, but have no qualms about telling said child exactly what they should or shouldn't do despite the fact that they're pretty much an adult. And woe betide the poor kid if he doesn't instantly obey. He's looking down the barrel of the mother of all guilt trips.
But this woman, bless her, has taken the creepy overbearing mother schtick to a whole other place [link].
Worried that she was sending her son off to Harvard without any sexual experience, this candidate for Mother Of The Year decided that the best option was to place an ad on Craigslist looking for someone to devirginise her darling boy. Huh ... I don't know if that actually qualifies her for best or worst parent ever.
But don't worry, it's not like Mum was just going to bring a girl home and then shove them both in a room together with a bottle of Asti Spumanti and a Marvin Gaye CD. Oh no, she had a plan! She bought four tickets to a concert and planned to give two to her son, the other two going to the lucky lady. Then said lucky lady would be expected to woo, win, and do the dirty with the unknowing lad.
I'm not entirely sure how Mommy Dearest expected to find out if the girl had gone through with it. Most teenage boys don't celebrate losing their V card by rushing home to tell their mother all about it. Maybe she was going to go to use the honor system. Given how creepy the rest of this story is, I'm not sure I want to know if she had other plans.
But what was in it for the girl other than fumbling sex with an inexperienced and possibly socially awkward boy, you ask? Well the final line of the ad hinted at what the girl's reward would be.
"Please put your favorite type of car in the subject, to show you're real."
It might be creepy and it might be weird, but with an incentive like that I bet the offers are still coming in.
