(sinister laugher) A close pal of mine, a lady, like two weeks ago, came to me and complained how her Professor in college had been demanding sex from her, and threatening to fail her if she didnt give in. This my friend here is a gorgeous beauty, and she gets hit on pretty often, but she really is awfully virtuous, which made me really concerned when she came to me and complained of this - Now, I'm not the type to turn away from a damsel in distress, especially one who's such a dear friend - we Scorpios are fierce friends like that. Anyways, she told me her dilemma and all, and I assured her that I would take care of it. In my exact words - I told her, Dont worry about it. I'll handle it. I sounded like a Wise Guy too, and make no mistake, I meant to sound that way, too! She beamed her eyes into mine questioningly, but I told her not to ask questions, but to just trust me. She made me promise that I wouldn't do anything dumb like wack the guy or something. I promised her I wouldn't wack the guy. She felt better and left. Later on, I gave this randy prof a call around 3am when he's sleeping with his wife and all - I told him that I was the girl's husband-to-be, and that I had performed the traditional rites of a bride on her head, which is like a HUGE deal. I told him that I knew his office - he has a law firm. And even mentioned the address. I kept my voice simple, cold and curt, and told him that I would simply pay him a 'visit' if he ever said any rubbish to my 'wife' again. He started to deny, beg, going into hysterics and I just hung up. Last week he called my friend and apologized profusely to her, promising never to bug her again, and to allow her to sail thru, even top her marks if necessary. Needlessly to say, my friend cant stop expressing her gratitude - she's a law student. And needless to say, I feel like I've done some good in the world. Boom!
Hmmm, makes you wonder what friends they have? Why not...I could start like a Justice League for damsels in distress! My friend even joked about it, she said I might be getting calls from her friends from now on.
Please, please, dont take me back to my dark side. He he he. My friend made me promise - laying a finger on that guy would have released so much anger that after everything, I would probably be left saying - what happened? Was I gone long? Lol.
I don't know how people get away with this stuff. Most Professors in college have Master's and Doctorate degrees, yet they still risk it all with something like this that probably wouldn't even happen and could get them fired without a chance at getting another career position. It's crazy!
I don't think that was evil of you at all. You were simply protecting a friend. Well...OK you told a teeeeeeny fib to get his attention, but good for you. Well done, Scorpio - see, I said you guys can be the BEST friends!
I think the women and those who support them should indeed write letters, make phone calls, file criminal reports if necessary, and protest. An official policy needs to be in place in every university and every workplace that the penalty for sexual harassment is the loss of a job with extreme prejudice.
Hey! Seriously I was expecting more from the title. I don't think you're evil. I think you demonstrated you have a hell of a lot of imagination. Try and remember some specifics regarding the conversation and you could whip it into a hub! Add some pics of your friend half-naked--especially if she was Indian--(woman go make my dinner not "woo woo")--and you would probably get a high score, too! (Just finished a hub myself. I found a hub written by Bre that I agreed with (but for MALE reasons) and took it from there. I felt bad for upsetting her that first time, ya know? I didn't mind the attention but I DID feel bad at first until I talked with her. . .but, I digress. . .)

I had a friend named Lynda I've known since early 70's. We've been through so much together. We were running buddies in the 70's, party animals, then devoted wives & mothers in the 80's-90's. She had Lupus. Fought it for nearly 30 years. Nothing changed between us, still friends, but our...
Too bad I have little idea of what I want to make my website about, or better yet the name.Do you guys recommend that I make a website ASAP, or wait it out a little? I can probably generate a lot of traffic from Hubpages alone. What do you think?I'm not sure how domains work, along with a couple...
I'm going all the way to Springfield, MO to watch the movie, since local theaters are not showing it. If you are going there, too, let me know, and we could meet before or after the movie.For those of you who are going to see it in other cities, why not let us know which city so that Hubbers who...
