Hi Dr. Date–
I usually pick up my girlfriend when she gets off work. Since she’s an overworked graduate student, sometimes things run a bit late, and I end up sitting outside her office, waiting for her to finish up.
Usually? No worries.
Yesterday though, I arrived a few minutes after her shift was over. Her door was still closed, so I texted her saying I was outside. She texts back, saying “come in real quick ;)”. We’d never done anything in there before (I’m not nearly as adventurous as she is) but it was something we’d talked about before. So I walk in, and immediately we just start making out. Hardcore. Jackets on the floor, lights off, saying things that probably shouldn’t be put into print… you get the picture. It’s going fine for a bit, and I’m starting to wonder why I even worried… until the door flies open, and some poor freshman walks in on us.
I don’t think he saw anything, but I just have no idea how long he was outside the door for. He said he was looking for a different TA.
I don’t think anything’s going to become of this (besides mild embarrassment) but I can’t help but worry that someone is gonna contact somebody and get us in trouble? Help!

Dear Too Much Education,
Eh, it’s not ideal, but you weren’t getting too explicit. If you had more than jackets on the floor, it would be a very different story. Chalk it up to very embarrassing PDA, apologize to the freshman if you see him again and lock the door next time.
