Some people just aren’t cut out to work around kids. Take, for example, the recent experience of a hapless administrator at Orange River Elementary School in Fort Myers, Florida.
This individual recently witnessed two 12-year-old kids kissing on the playground — a girl kissing a boy, specifically.
Instead of simply separating the two, the assistant principal — not named in media reports — decided to call to the Florida Department of Children and Families, which recommended the police be notified of a possible attempted battery.
Though an officer did file a report, no arrests or other disciplinary actions were taken against the students, both of whom apparently consented to the kiss.
It’s not clear if any disciplinary or corrective actions were taken against the administrator.
