Oh my! This could really come in handy with our six teenage girls! Might give our boys a hint as to what they could be up against, too.

What a hoot! Thanks for sharing it.

Pretty funny application! I'll have to use it if that situation ever arises. I'm really praying that the Lord returns before anyone ever attempts to even look twice at my daughter!!

A guy I worked with once said that the first time a guy came to date his daughter he would tell him "I have a 357, forty acres, and a shovel and I know how to use all three. Haver her home by 9:30." He said he never had any problems with her being out late.

Seriiously, this application doesn't have a waiver for background or credit checks. What's up with that?
