One day, a young man went to church to make a confession or two. He was crying uncontrollably and looking frantically around for the priest. As soon as he saw the priest, he entered the confessional.
Even though the young man was sitting in the confessional, he didn't know where to start. It seemed as if he struggled with a personal dilemma and couldn't muster up the courage to confess it all out.

"Forgive me, father, for I have sinned," uttered the young man with a parched throat.
"What have you done, son?" asked the priest in a soft voice.
"A few weeks ago, I went to the library. I remained there until closing time, and when I was about to go home, the rain started pouring down. It was so intense, I had to wait in the library. I had waited for a while with the librarian, a young attractive single girl, then one thing led to another, and I ended up sleeping with her," stated the young man, who was still sobbing and sniffing his nose.
"Well, don't cry, son. It's a sin, but it is not that bad. You should say 5 Hail Marys, and it will surely be forgiven," said the priest, re-assuring the crying man.
"But it doesn't end there," replied the young man, sobbing like a baby.
"Father, there's something else I need to tell you. A few days later, my elderly neighbor asked me to help her with her computer. Her husband was hospitalized, and she couldn't send an email to her son. I went there and fixed the problem, but when I was about to leave, the rain started pouring down. It was really stormy, and I had to wait. One thing led to another, and I ended up sleeping with the old lady," cried the young man.

"Oh dear, well, that certainly makes it harder indeed, but still - you should say 15 Hail Marys, and you will be forgiven," replied the priest, trying his best to calm the weeping young man.
"Oh, I'm afraid, the worst part is still ahead," added the young man, still sobbing.
“Yesterday, I went to the barber. I was his last client that day. As soon as he finished and was about to close the shop, the rain started pouring down so intensely; I had to wait with him. One thing led to another, and I ended up sleeping with him as well," the man had stopped talking but was still crying.
"Oh dear, I must say, it is indeed worse than I thought," replied the priest, shocked and confused what more to tell the young man.
"So what should I do, father?" asked the man.
The priest heaved a sigh and said, "Well, the first thing is, you should get out of here before it starts raining!"
No wonder the priest became concerned for himself as soon as the young man was done confessing!
