..because this is news to me.
It's prom season. Got your dress, tickets, corsage? Got your date's criminal background check?
If not, you may wind up going solo.
Most students in Hillsborough County are required to fill out a form with their date's name, address and phone number when purchasing a ticket to the big bash, if the date does not attend their school.
Some schools have gone further, requesting photocopies of student IDs, drivers' licenses and — in one case — the date's Social Security number.
The high schools here in Tampa will do a criminal background check on your prom date! How long has this been going on?
I personally prefer the Rodney Atkins method of dealing with your daughter's date.
