You have just begun a cross-country bus ride when, at the first stop, an adult boards and take the seat beside you. Once the door closes and the bus begins moving again, the adult, without prompting on your part, says, "Have I got a story that you need to hear." The adult then begins telling you - in full graphic detail - the scenes and dialog from some perverse book they just read.How in the world is the adult on the bus any different from the adult in the classroom? Answer: There is no difference. They both are creepy situations, and creepy people.

a. What luck, an interesting adult to chat with for the next 1800 miles.
b. Man, am I creeped out. Who is this sicko? Driver?!?
