High School Seniors Reveal Their Most Legendary Class Pranks[rebelmouse-image 18350797 is_animated_gif=
Senior pranks are "tradition" in some places. Generally, they're supposed to be a good natured parting gift from the graduating class, one final blaze of glory. Of course, some times things go too far and things end poorly. The practice has been falling out of favor lately - maybe because of that chance of going poorly, maybe because they're generally really hard to organize. Have you ever tried wrangling teenagers? It's nearly impossible. On the rare instance it does happen, though... the reward could be entry into legendary prankhood status.
One Reddit user asked:
What's the best senior prank you've heard of?
We don't want to give too much away, but there are chickens, Fall Out Boy, a kidnapping, bubble wrap and a mariachi band. Yeah... things got awesome.
Fire Hazard[rebelmouse-image 18350798 is_animated_gif=
Some kids spread a rumor that they planned to leave half way through the day by sneaking out the fire exit.
When the faculty found out, they chained all the fire exits.
Students then called the fire department to report a fire hazard and the school was evacuated by the fire department.
All the seniors then left anyway.
Fall Out Boy[rebelmouse-image 18350799 is_animated_gif=
When I was a freshman, a bunch of the seniors convinced the whole school that Fall Out Boy was coming to perform a concert for our school.
They started by hanging posters for a supposed contest Fall Out Boy was holding where they would come play a concert for whichever high school in America got the most students to sign a petition (the winning school would be the one with the highest percentage of votes, so we stood a chance even though our school has ~500 students in it, total). They hyped it up and passed around the petition for a week or so and then we didn't hear about it for a while.
Months go by, and then rumors start to spread that we won. No official word mind you, but some seriously persistent rumors. This goes on for some weeks, until virtually the entire student body is convinced it is the truth. Then, one day, a black escalade rolls up to the school in the middle of a school day, so certain classes can see it from their windows. It pulls up to the theater entrance and then some dudes rush in with instrument cases. Some kids who saw them swore that they were the members of Fall Out Boy. They must have been setting up and practicing for the concert.
Finally, the big day arrives. Our PRINCIPAL comes on the announcements one morning and tells us that there is a big surprise for the whole student body that afternoon and we are all to report to the theater during the final period of the day. Many a freshman girl spent the whole day screaming about how exciting it was that Fall Out Boy was here.
So we all go to the auditorium and the principal comes out and confirms it - it is a Fall Out Boy concert. He tells us that we need to give them a big welcome for them to start playing, so we all start chanting "FALL! OUT! BOY! FALL! OUT! BOY!" and as we're doing it the opening chords of Sugar We're Going Down ring out over the amps and the stage curtain lifts up.
On stage are a couple of scrawny white guys in tight pants rocking out playing Fall Out Boy Songs. It turns out they were some of the seniors responsible for this prank. Funniest part was that many kids didn't even realize and still were convinced it was Fall Out Boy halfway through the fake concert. I was a skeptic most of the way through the year, but they had me believing it when we were in there chanting.
Boulder Removal[rebelmouse-image 18350800 is_animated_gif=
Some seniors paid a company to move a big boulder in front of the main entrance to the school. The school then had to pay that SAME company to come remove it.
Marbles[rebelmouse-image 18350654 is_animated_gif=
My class's senior prank was passing out marbles to as many people as possible pre-graduation. When you went to shake the principals hand during the ceremony, you would pass him the marble. By the time I got to shake his hand (this was a class of about 800 and my last name was towards the end) he was surrounded by a pretty big pile of marbles. The principal was cool about it, he just laughed when I handed it to him.
I have no idea who came up with the idea but it was so harmless and random.
The No-Prank Prank[rebelmouse-image 18350801 is_animated_gif=
The seniors at my school hyped up the prank, put posters everywhere, handed out flyers, posted daily on social media. Installed a countdown clock.
This also grabbed the attention of the local newspaper. They arrived at the school for an article. That was for us huge news. Some seniors even gave quotes to the press.
Then the clock struck zero. Everyone held their breath for wat was about to happen.
There was no prank.
Framing The Enemy[rebelmouse-image 18350802 is_animated_gif=
I heard of a prank where the students went and spray painted "class of 2005" all over the school and sprayed grass killer on the football field in big letters that said "class of 2005."
The prank was that it was the class of 2006, they did it the week before they became seniors. So the senior class got in trouble for it but the juniors who did it never said anything until after they got their diplomas after senior year. Kinda lame, but I respect the approach.
Paul Bunyan[rebelmouse-image 18350803 is_animated_gif=
We had an interior courtyard in one of the buildings. There was a restaurant about 15 miles away with a Paul Bunyan statue out in front. Most of the school showed up at 4am to get the statue, driving down the expressway with the head over the front of the pickup and the feet almost touching the ground in the back with a tarp over the middle. The pickup was surrounded by 100 or so cars and trucks. Nobody was getting close to it.
We got it to the school, hoisted it to the center of the main building and admired our work. The next day the school had to get a crane to get the statue removed. Best part was nobody saw a 100 vehicle convoy with a 15 foot statue in the center, on the highway
Bubble Wrap[rebelmouse-image 18350804 is_animated_gif=
During my sophomore year of high school, the seniors covered the hallway floors with bubble wrap and managed to play elevator music through the announcement speakers.
Hannah Says Class Is Dismissed[rebelmouse-image 18350805 is_animated_gif=
During my senior prank we sent someone down to the office between every class period and had them play random music like Hannah Montana and stuff instead of the regular bells.
Some Serious Coordination[rebelmouse-image 18350806 is_animated_gif=
I heard a story of a senior class of one school switching with a senior class from a different school. Each person was assigned another person from the other school to switch with for the day.
Kidnapping - With Permission[rebelmouse-image 18350807 is_animated_gif=
A couple friends of mine and I kidnapped our headmaster/principal (with his permission) from assembly by rappelling down from the rafters and putting a bag over his head and ushering him off stage. Then we played a queued up video that looked like a ransom video that was happening live. At the end of the video the headmaster escapes and returns to the assembly and continues his speech as if nothing happened.
Making Amends[rebelmouse-image 18350808 is_animated_gif=
My class decided to bring a bunch of grills and hold a barbeque in the parking lot. The seniors before us actually destroyed so much property that we decided to just have something everyone could enjoy.
Doggone Dogwood[rebelmouse-image 18350809 is_animated_gif=
I live in Virginia and three years ago a bunch of kids planted a number of dogwood trees in the end zone of our football field. The kicker is that the law says dogwood trees can't be cut down. I mean, it may be illegal to cut them down, but nothing stops anyone from just...well, digging them up again and moving them elsewhere, and saying, "Wow! Thanks for the free trees!"
The school had to have them moved, but not harmed.
The Prankback[rebelmouse-image 18350810 is_animated_gif=
One year, the senior prank at the highschool was to park in the most a**hole way possible, taking up multiple spots and double parking. Not very good in my book, of funny, but hey it didnt damage anything, so whatever.
The parking lot was shared by a local business though, and the shop owner thought he'd play a prank of his own. Called a buddy, and an off duty cop came down to give everyone fake parking tickets. The econ class that most of them were in, had a view of the lot. The cop drove up in a cop car, with lights flashing. Wish i could have been there to see their faces when the cop started placing empty ticket envelopes under wind shields.
Steel Drum[rebelmouse-image 18350811 is_animated_gif=
Away back in '69, our class painted a 55 gallon drum as a beer can. The "bottom" was removed, and they hoisted it up the flagpole very fast, so that when they hit the top of the lanyard, the momentum flipped it over onto the top of the flagpole.
Back then, 55 gallon drums were made of steel. Nowadays with plastic drums, it would likely be much easier.
That "Fowl" Smell[rebelmouse-image 18350812 is_animated_gif=
The year I graduated, all the popular seniors got like 20-50 chickens and set them loose in the main building. Only thing is, our school was having work done on the main building at that moment. A bunch of the chickens found their way into the ceiling and died up there. They lived long enough to sh!t EVERYWHERE, too. So there was bird sh!t and several rotting chicken corpses stuck in the ceiling.
It was not a pleasant few days that followed.
Fruit And Water[rebelmouse-image 18350813 is_animated_gif=
I heard of one where the school banned senior pranks and were told that if they did it, they would not get their diplomas and be expelled. So all the seniors decided to bring a banana into school one day, and just walk around with it, not eat it or anything, just constantly be holding it. So the teachers got suspicious of this and told them they had to eat it or throw it away before they get confiscated. The students then never ate them and they got confiscated.
The next day, they did the same thing, but with big bottles of water, but never drank them, just carried them and all of them had the same bottle I believe (not too sure), so the school again, got suspicious and did the same as the banana's. They ended up confiscating them all.
The seniors contacted the local media about the school taking away their food and water.
The next day, parents were calling in complaining and reporting to the district saying that the school wasn't allowing them to have fruit or water in school. This was during a particularly hot summer, too.
Confetti[rebelmouse-image 18350814 is_animated_gif=
At my sister's school the year before she graduated they managed to fill the courtyard/playground with 4cm of confetti.
That's an inch and a half of tiny round pieces of paper. School was not amused, as they had to pay to get a container for it, but they did got the entire class to clean it up.
"Boob"[rebelmouse-image 18350816 is_animated_gif=
Our football field bleachers were painted blue and white. The white spelled out 2008 in a block style font. So if you were on the fields and looked up into the stands you saw a giant "2008"
We used grass chalk spray (temporary white spray paint) to close off the 2. Since it was block lettering, it looked like it said "BOOB."
Mariachi[rebelmouse-image 18345433 is_animated_gif=
My senior class hired a mariachi band to follow our principal around all day.
All of us have fears which some might call irrational.
Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.
But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.
And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.
And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.
Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:
"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"
"I was 14, alone at my grandmas house around midnight."
"She was across the street at the bar she owned."
"I was playing games on her computer, about 15 feet from one of the windows facing the backyard."
"All of a sudden the glass from that window shatters, and I ran to one of the bedrooms."
"I can hear my name being called."
"Eventually I see my grandma's ex-boyfriend enter the living room where the computer is."
"He keeps saying my name."
"I’m scared sh*tless, but I walk out and confront him."
"He says my grandma stole his ID and that’s what he came for, as he’s taking money from my grandmas purse."
"He looks f*cked up on something."
"I forget how he leaves but when he does I call the bar and people come over looking for him."
"They didn’t find him."
"About a year later he did it again, and I was once again alone there."
"Except this time instead of breaking a window he decides to try to kick the side door in."
"I’m just there chilling when out of nowhere I hear the loudest bangs coming from the side of the house and I instantly knew what was happening."
"I immediately called the bar and they sent a bunch of people over before he could make it in."
"He apparently tried to jump from one of her sheds into the alley next to her house and broke his leg."
"He went to prison."- nfreshn
They're coming right for us!

Uncomfortable in new surroundings.
"My sister has mental health issues."
"We were in a foreign country, driving across mountains on a one lane dirt road with no guardrails."
"She had a complete mental breakdown and threatened many times to drive off the edge."
"To this day, my mom swears my sister wouldn't have done it."
"All I say is, 'you weren't in the car'."
"'You have no idea'."- BlorengeJulius
Lost in the woods.
"Getting lost on 350 acres of woods in southeast Georgia."
"Was found about 6 hours later."
The dog found me hours before the people did.- No_Regrats_42Scared Woods GIF by Brat TVGiphy
A near death experience.
"Was working as a linemen tasked to replace a 16m wooden power pole which requires climbing up to untie the lines from the isolators."
"I checked if the pole had any rot beforehand, climbed up, untied the lines, climbed down, as I was packing my tools up , the pole fell from its own."- LimaRadek
He wasn't who he claimed to be.
"A man claiming to be a meter reader was in our yard and tried the back door AFTER trying the front."
"It was unlocked because there was a field behind us and our gate had a lock, that he somehow got by."
"The meter reader man was nearly eaten by our Great Dane who was dumb and peaceful, except for when she laid eyes on him."
"Our other dog also wanted to kill him and he was up on our trampoline begging us to call the dogs off, which we, my then 11 year old sister and I, refused to do and went to get our dad, who worked from home."
"The guy escaped while we got our dad and my dad let the police know what happened."
"The real meter reader man came the next week."- ApplesintheorchardDog Bouncing GIF by AFV PetsGiphy
Had no idea what they were witnessing.
"I guess watching a loved one have a seizure when I didn’t understand what it was."
"Legit thought I witnessed a death."
"Scary stuff."- Peppapigisgodly
Always look both ways.
"I got hit by a car while in a crosswalk a few months back."
"Had a split second where I saw him coming and realized what was about to happen."
"I thought I was going to die."- jolalolalulu
Big Sister to the Rescue.
"Saved my sisters life."
"We were boating and my parents just kinda assumed we’d be ok with them only out a couple hundred feet."
"I was about 17 and she was about 7."
"I’m laying there chilling and see her slip and fall into the water and just straight up sink."
"Ran over, dove in and pulled her to shore."
"She spit up a bunch of water and was fine but that experience rocked me to my core."
"Not a super crazy story but almost seeing a sibling die has always stuck with me."
"I’ve broken almost every bone in my body, I died one time and was in a coma for a little bit but for some reason this one stuck with me."- Present-Trip5231
Often, an experience that left us scared does make for a good story down the line.
Though whether it was a good enough story to make having gone through the experience worth it, is debatable.

Having to work for a living is hard work.
Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.
So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.
I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.
I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.
I do hate internet issues.
But that is warranted.
Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:
"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"
Waiting tables was always the bane of my existence. Customers are rude. Staff is rude. It never ends.
Filthy HoursFail Just For Laughs GIFGiphy
"Trash men. They’re looked down on as dirty and uneducated, but they do a hard job that is absolutely critical to our public health."
"Youth sports officials. I umpire baseball as a hobby and the way parents act is deplorable."
"The parents on the other hand deserve loads of hate sometimes. I was a coach for soccer and volleyball while I was in the Air Force. You would have loved to be a sports official for our leagues at our base. If a parent got sh**ty they are immediately ejected, no questions, and reported to whoever is their higher authority. It almost never happened."
Behind the Counter
"Any customer (client/patient) facing job. They get the abuse that stems from managements decisions, mistakes and incompetence."
"I did customer service for automotive companies at a call center for years. People get so unhinged, between dealerships, management, people calling into the wrong department, angry customers who were itching for a fight over a rental car. The job paid for five free therapy sessions a year, but honestly, it would take every ounce of restraint not to break some days."
"You aren't allowed to defend yourself or hang up, you can't transfer them to supervisors for a call, you technically work for a third party company that exists to keep the customer from ever actually speaking to the corporation. It was the worst job I've ever had, and that's coming from someone who used to work at a seafood processing plant."
"Food service. The workers have to eat too, you know."
"Working fast food sucked. Not because the job was hard. But because people were *icks. For like, no reason. Working in an actual kitchen also sucked. Not because the work was hard, but because you never did it quick enough and your boss was a *ick for like no reason. But at least you didn't deal with customers."
Too much stress...Jim Carrey Omg GIFGiphy
"Defense attorneys. People hate them because they defend violent criminals. However, as one lawyer put it, their job is not just to defend these people; their job is also to make sure that the cops did their job correctly."
I've always wondered about defense attorneys. How do they reconcile their morals?

"I live in Germany and currently in my (hopefully) last semester of university to become a pharmacist (4 years of university, one practical year and three exams of state required). A lot of people here think pharmacists are only cashiers and don’t know we get a scientific education. And God help me if I question a doctor's decision."
"I usually just lurk as a guest, but I made a Reddit account just for this. Cooks for public schools. They are constantly overworked, underpaid, and disrespected. Most schools have only a few ovens and microwaves, so school chefs have to either jam unsafe amounts of frozen food into ovens and microwaves, which is a giant fire hazard, or work non-stop from early morning."
"Plant breeders and plant geneticists. Imagine you're a plant nerd and you spend your life studying genetics so you can figure out how to improve food crops. Like, to make them yield more, taste better, be healthier, survive drought, etc. But on the internet, you're apparently trying to poison the world and control the food supply."
"Veterinarians. My doctors CONSTANTLY get yelled at or called heartless when, for instance, we refer them to a hospital more suited to care for the animal than us. Like bro we didn't just tell you know we are giving you options and trying to ensure you seek the proper care. Don't call me a heartless b**tard for that crap."

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.
Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!
Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
"What should be free?"
Let's get these out of the way first...No, let's get this first one out of the way first.
Hidden fees are the worst.
Hidden. F***ing. Fees.
"Transaction/processing fees when you order a digital product online. Such as a concert ticket, where you pay 6 euro extra while you pay online, and have to print the ticket yourself."
"Or processing fees to pay bills that you need. Duke energy charges a $7 processing fee for you to pay your energy bill. Like wtf."
Pay To Pee
"Public bathrooms! The amount of human piles of poop around because the homeless have no where to relieve themselves!"
"Live in a very tourist-y part of the U.K., all public toilets charge and most cafes/pubs/libraries won’t let people use their toilets. As someone who lives here year round it’s really frustrating and doesn’t seem to make sense."
Want A Better Society? Educate Them.
"College. Or at the very least, college APPLICATIONS. If you're gonna require it for most careers, atleast make it accessible for people. And I just think it's stupid that people have to pay to get rejected."
"Oh god I hate that so much. Same with applying to apartments it’s such a waste of money if you don’t get approved. It racks up quickly too."
It does feel grimy when "official documentation" that is "mandatory" has to be bought and paid for not by the people requiring it, but by the people needing it.
Forcing Us To Pay For Something We're Forced To Have
"ID cards issued by the government. Especially since you need them for almost every aspect of daily living."
"I'm not the biggest fan of free stuf but having to pay for a piece of paper that says "I exist" is ridiculous."
It'll never not feel bad having to pay for something we expect to be free, but it feels ten times worse when it's something you need to get by in life. As in, need to live.
Let's All Agree To Take Care Of Each Other
"All base needs up to a level. I mean stuff we need to survive, eg. power, water,... and things we are required to use to be relevant in daily life internet,..."
"Seeing how now power companies are fuel companies are having THE biggest profit in years while more and more families are pushed into bigger and bigger deths just to get by."
"Same goes for internet tbh, poor kids are just not getting by in school becasue they lack the basic stuff every other kid has to get further in life. I am not saying they need the fastest possible internet with unlimited dl, but give them so they can work for school so the vicious cycle can be broken."
We Need It More Than Anyone
"All mental health services. If you don’t have benefits or a VERY good paying job, they are unaffordable for how often most people really need them. At $120-160/ session even once a week is not affordable for most people these days"
A Fine Line Between Need And Want
"Drinking water, sure. But water is an expendable resource and it should honestly be more restricted when we think about cases like people watering their lawns."
Paying To Live
"Insulin. People are dying because of greedy pharmaceutical companies."
"But We're 'Pro-Life'" - Jerks
"Birth control of all kinds."
"For anyone who b*tches about spending taxpayer money, I'd ask whether it costs more to provide condoms or to house prisoners."
"Giving birth (In the us)"
"As a female US citizen the more I learn about the whole giving birth sh*t the less I want kids. My friend just had a baby, there were some complications. She is now paying off a 14k hospital bill! The lowest I have hears is 8k. 8k just to have a f-cking kid! For a country that is gung-ho about forcing women to have kids they have missed the mark completely."
Everyone is looking for their payout, and unfortunately sometimes we're the ones who have to give it to them, whether it makes sense or not.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.
I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
In other states, you and your ladies can live a more peaceful life. Here in Florida, it's A Song of Sweat And Fire Ants.
Ever get tiny little jellyfish stuck under your side-boob? Happens here all the time.
Bikinis should come with a "Sand Lice, Your Titty Crease, And You" informational pamphlet.
Wanna jog? Hope you accounted for the fact that the air is soup and will chafe and cauterize your nipples.
Know what limits your field of vision, making you more likely to accidentally step on a snake and/or gator? Boobs.
Know what slows you down as you try to escape the angry reptile from the above paragraph? Also boobs.
Reddit user Saibotnl1 asked:
"What's the most negative thing about having boobs?"
Now take all this stuff they said sucked, and then put it inside of a steam oven filled with mosquitos. That's Florida.
And Florida is incompatibile with breasts.
Cardio Is HardioGIF by VIASWEATGiphy
"I love them but running can be a nuisance even in a good sports bra."
"When I go to work, there is a woman that usually runs on the shoulder of the road. I gasp at how much her boobs bounce. Isn't that doing damage to tissue? Painful?"
"Yes! I literally always hold mine when going up/down stairs so they dont bounce. Running is uncomfortable even with a good bra :/ "
"If it's a sports bra that holds you, it's so tight that it's impossible to get into or out of without a whole team of people like a pit crew."
"If you can comfortably get into it, it won't hold the girls for long."
"Cardio is just not worth all this."
"As a kid I wasn't fit enough for jump rope, but now that I'm older and have the big boobies it feels even more impossible to ever indulge in."
Literally In The Way
"They get in the way!!"
"Lately I've been getting frustrated with exercise. My personal trainer will say to hold something a certain way and I'll try but it's so uncomfortable because my boobs are completely in the way."
"She has small boobs so she doesn't account for them being in that space right in front of your chest."
"My English teacher in 10th grade was drinking water one day when a few drops landed on his shirt. He then complained about getting older and how he never stuck out far enough to get his shirt wet."
"I just sighed."
"4th grade. 4th grade is when I stuck out too much to avoid drips."
"So very much this."
"I refuse to do mountain climbers when my trainer suggests it, she started to get mad saying it's a great exercise. My retort was that I'd really rather not knee myself in the breasts as part of my workout."
"The lady has small boobs and replied that she had never thought of that!"
"Probably growing them."
"It hurts, and if you get big boobs young and quickly, it’s both physical and social agony."
"It hurts to grow them, first of all, your chest aches and bumping them against anything really hurts - and since they’re a sudden, large addition to your body, you’re ALWAYS bumping them on stuff."
"But the social aspect is worse."
"Your female family members comment on them slyly and smirk at your response."
"Your male friends look at you weird and you have to realize they see you as more sexual than girls with smaller chests, even though you literally cannot control this."
"Other girls can be nasty and jealous."
"Eventually I learned to manage all this and I like having breasts now; but from like 11-16 I was so frustrated and upset that I had developed them at all."
Two Volcanosrachael ray boob sweat GIF by First We Feast: Hot OnesGiphy
"The sweat and itch!"
"Also that they're like two volcanos, which isn't especially practical during summers or when you're a constantly hot temperatured person anyway."
"No matter what I try, the skin under my boobs never cools down!"
"Boob sweat is the bane of my existence when it's even a little bit hot outside - and sometimes even when it's not lol..."
"I hate the feeling of sweat on my boobs. I just put tissue between and underneath my boobs to hopefully absorb the sweat so it won’t start to itch and drip."
"I STILL am not able to remove them after a long day. Why?!"
"Why can't I just set em aside for the night, all done. Why hasn't technology advanced to this possibility yet??"
"Absolutely they would. The relief we would get ... oh my god it sounds divine."
"Maybe I wouldn’t be so b*tchy."
"I’d honestly probably only wear them for ren faire, and leave them at home the rest of the year."
"The double standard of girls with small chests and big chests."
"If you have a big chest no matter what you wear or do it's sexual. But for girls with smaller chests they can get away with crop tops or v necks or even swim suits."
"Lol the bigger girls who spent their entire grade school years getting sent to the principal's office for breaking dress code will agree with you."
"Loose shirts will tent and billow up in the wind as you walk-- dress coded."
"Tight shirts that don't tent but cling to your chest-- dress coded."
"And don't even think about anything but a crew neckline, or you'll be dress coded again."
"I always got in trouble for wearing dresses in school, but skinny Minnie wearing something even worse gets by no problem just because she doesn't fill it out the way I do."

"Bras are expensive and you need regular bras, sports bras, probably something special like a strapless or low back if you have a special occasion or something."
"And don't even get me started on women's healthcare ..."
"Stage 4 breast cancer patient here, and it costs me about an extra $5000/yr to stay alive if everything goes well."
"I just stopped breastfeeding and none of my bras fit anymore."
"I’ve just been wearing sports bras every day because I don’t even know what cup size I am anymore and I don’t want to spend a fortune replacing all of my bras."
"Plus if you choose not to wear bras for any number of reasons, you’re treated as deviant or an acceptable target of inappropriate attentions."
"Laying on your stomach can be tricky."
"Laying on your back can be tricky as well."
"And on your side."
"Just laying in general with big boobs is a hassle."
"However women in my life have found it difficult to get a decent back massage because of this. I've seen plenty of massage tables with head holes, but none with boob support..."
