October is here, and we all know what that means... it's FAFSA season! College students all over the country will be filling out the ubiquitous form for federal financial aid, but this year has an added twist: a new meme where young people threaten to snitch on each other to FAFSA for their spending habits.


Students may fill out their FAFSA forms...

...but FAFSA may also be collecting reports from these Twitter turncoats!



We all should have been saving this money for college.


Once one person threatens to rat others out to FAFSA, it starts a chain reaction of snitching.


Some expenditures were more worth it than others...



Throughout this whole process, the financial aid agency is surely taking detailed notes.



Apparently, they received so many tips that FAFSA had to temporarily shut down. Hopefully, by the time they've come back online, this meme will have ended. Students need that financial aid for... things.
