People tend to judge the actions of others but seem to draw a blank when confronted about their perceptions.
A person may not think on the same level as other individuals who behave differently, but that doesn't mean those individuals are lacking in morals or ethics.
Yet, people sure can be critical without explanation. What's their deal?
Curious to hear examples of generally misunderstood activities, Redditor fren-z703 asked:
"What things are frowned upon for no obvious reason?"
These work-related situations got the stink-eye.
Well-Deserved Time Off
"Taking all of your earned PTO."
"As if by scheduling 10 days off in a year you are somehow taking advantage of the company."
"Certain jobs. If you tell someone you’ve been a janitor for 6 years there’s a good chance their response will be a frown."
Shocking Turn Of Events
"My parents frowned upon me for years after I dropped out of college and became an electrician. They would ask about how my day was and I'd tell them it was rough, lots of labor and hard work (that's just how it works when you're fresh and new in the industry) and they would berate me saying things like, 'well, this is what you chose instead of college like your brother!'. Then I started doing work on their house at their request, and they saw the kind of profession I have. They thought differently of me after that."
Everything In Moderation
"Not being a part of hustle culture. If you want to work restless towards something, that's great, but don't hate on somebody because they don't. For me, I value sleep and want to have time to myself where I don't have to think about working and just enjoy doing nothing."
"There's no problem needing time to rest and literally not work yourself to death."
Some people have a problem about those who may or may not be sick.
Makes Me Sick Thinking About It
"Calling out sick when you’re actually sick… especially when it’s more than one day."
It Doesn't Concern You
"Lol I never understood lying about being sick. Ill just tell you the truth and if you have a problem with it thats your problem. I've worked enough jobs and paid my dues and now I get benefits."
"A 'mental health day' or 'just need a day to get organized' is perfectly valid IMO and if u want to press me on it, ill find a job that values and respects me."
"Especially when the person pressing you about it is not the one writing your checks. It's understandable in certain circumstances like if there was a deadline or something needs to get done. But otherwise, chill out dude."
Stay Home For Everyone's Sake
"Ignoring Covid for a second, I feel like showing up to work when you’re clearly super sick should get you in more trouble than making a sick call. Especially in casual jobs I’ve worked where people are desperate to make money they’ll show up half dead, coughing and sniffing because they don’t want to miss that juicy Sunday shift etc. Few days later half the team is sick because they all caught it from the prat that refused to stay home."
"You do you" is not a manta shared by the majority.
Why The Stigma?
"Confidently buying pregnancy tests."
"I'm 26, in a stable relationship, lived with my SO for a few years, yet when I go to buy tests the people behind the counter (often women 50-60ish) become sheepish and try to do their best to conceal it."
This Causes Some To Raise Alarm
"People who choose to sleep late."
"My mum thinks it’s some kind of reflection of bad moral character if my younger brother who does a physical job lies in on his days off."
Different "Body Clock"
"Being a night owl instead of an early riser. I’m not lazy, just have a different body clock. I’ve always felt guilty about it, though."
"Getting the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu."
"Not having an opinion on a subject."
Our Lips Are Sealed
"Confidently being quiet/silent."
"Yep. Realized that in my teenage. The shy or intoverted person gets percieved as arrogant."
"My ex husband's family said I was stuck up because I would just listen and take in the conversation around me. If I didn't have anything to contribute, I would just listen. But, they took it as me being a snob."
"Going to a movie by yourself. You literally sit there quietly watching a screen for hours. I usually catch them by myself, but people act like I'm disposing of a body when I do that."
"Going out alone. Anywhere. Park, cinema, restaurants, concerts.... All my friends and relatives think I'm weird, but I just want to have some good time with nobody I know around."
Those closest to me know I'm not a seafood person, although that has gradually changed as my palate expanded over the years.
I still have my hard limits, but I will have sushi.
Because of my Japanese heritage, people–included my family–always expressed their disapproval for my antipathy towards seafood in my early adulthood.
I think they were just disappointed since the Japanese culturally thrive off of eating foods from the ocean, and I was the antithesis of that.
They just had to give me time. I eventually came around to eating slimy fish flesh, and my family couldn't be more proud.
It takes next to nothing to ruin a person these days.
When people are a hot mess it's easier to expose nowadays.
Be careful how you act. Because everything you've built, facade or not, can crumble.
Redditor ChadGeraltofRivia wanted to discuss some very important life lessons. They asked:
"Warren Buffet said, 'It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.' What's a real-life example of this?"
Reputation is everything. And it's fragile. But just try to be your best self and you should be fine. Maybe.
Bye BrookeReal Housewives Goodbye GIFGiphy
"Youtuber Brooke Houts. Uploaded a wrong video, in which she was abusing her dog."
"Artesian builds. CEO destroyed the entire company by deciding a winner of their raffle wasn't 'popular enough' to get the prize."
The best and most ironic part of this? Their sh**ty attitude towards the winner meant that a bunch of companies went to the winner and offered them a free PC and sponsorship."
"Thus giving the winner way more than they'd otherwise have won and ensuring that those other companies signed on a trending streamer due to their publicity in the incident. Artesian literally hamstrung themselves and handed their competition all their business."
"Had a teacher in high school that everyone loved. He always helped kids who were being bullied, fully sat down with us and tried to mediate any conflict in groups as well. No one had a bad thing to say about him. One day a news story breaks that a teacher was caught filming up girls. Next day our favourite teacher had taken a few 'personal days.'"
"Everyone defended him saying it was only a coincidence that he was gone. We knew it was him when they started talking to girls from our school. They found footage of underage girls on his work laptop, 99% were students. Destroyed his career, family and life."
'Communicator of the Year'
"Kelly Blazek used to run a closed job board for Cleveland area openings, mostly marketing-related. A young professional dm’d her on LinkedIn and her nasty response was so profoundly awful it went viral. I think she even had a 'communicator of the year' award revoked."
"After all this, I think she fell off the face of the internet. She went from someone who functioned as a clearing house for job listings to a household name due to her unprofessional behavior. Article: https://www.cnn.com/2014/02/27/tech/web/linked-in-cleveland-job-bank/index.html"
Don't LieGIF by Big BrotherGiphy
"At one point, Ryan Lochte was arguably on the way to becoming as big in the swimming world as Michael Phelps. Then his lies about being robbed at the Olympics torched his reputation and career."
Oh Ryan... what were you thinking? Were you thinking?
Nice Suitsad natalia kills GIFGiphy
"That X Factor judge who told a contestant, wearing a SUIT that he was trying to copy her husband lmfao. I think Natalia Kills was her name."
"On the Gold Coast in Australia, the theme park Dreamworld lost all it’s reputation after 4 people died in an accident."
I didn’t remember hearing about this so I looked into it. Tragic. 3 of the 4 people killed were in the same family (brother/sister/brothers boyfriend).
"Then, several years later, the sisters husband seems to have committed suicide by intentionally entering floodwaters:"
"A former boss in the Army did it. He was son of a general, airborne ranger, and had a family right out of stepford wives. He was the 'perfect' soldier and family man. Until one day it was found out he was banging an interpreter he met in Iraq.
"He hid this for a number of years, but it was eventually discovered that he was flying her all around Europe on US Air Force planes in order to keep her close and keep it a secret from his wife."
"The Army found out and he was forced into retirement and had to pay several hundred thousand to cover the cost of the misappropriated aircraft. The divorce proceedings were quite comical as well. Made the military newspapers and everything."
'Institute of Directors'
"Gerald Ratner. At one time 'Ratners' were a nationwide chain of jewelry shops in the UK, they were known as an 'affordable' jewelry shop. In 1991 he was a guest at the 'Institute of Directors' and made a speech where he called the stuff sold by his shops, 'total Crap.'"
"A popular range of earrings was described as being cheaper than a prawn sandwich and compounded it by saying the prawn sandwich would last longer. Shares in the company dropped like a stone and he was fired by the majority company shareholders."
In an Instantseason 5 morphine GIF by BBCGiphy
"Had a supervisor who decided to get blitzed on morphine and alcohol before writing a racist, incomprehensible, unprofessional email and sending it to every subordinate. Every single person turned against him, and he was gone from his job really quickly after that. (And he was tenured and everything). Happened in an instant."
"This well renowned family I used to go to church with, they were the prime example of a loving happy family. Years later it comes out the husband was having an affair, divorce, and he moved out of town, the church didn’t accept him anymore, neither did the community. The family also moved away cause they just couldn’t stay in the same town anymore because the affair caused bad memories, they needed to start over."
"I knew a girl who worked her a*se off to get into a doctorate school. She got expelled because she cheated on the first exam and was caught by a professor."
"That sucks, but I have to admit that it was right. Academic honesty is a pretty basic trait for a doctorate."
"I was just reading a story about how a police officer with a perfect career, ruined everything by buying donuts and scanning a barcode for a carrot to make it cheaper. Lost his job for that."
"Real thing apparently, the UK cop paid 7 pence (nine cents) for a 7.75 pound (9.50$) box of donuts. Stealing donuts is the most stereotypical corrupt cop crime."
$$$ 4 LifeAwesome Money GIF by Publishers Clearing HouseGiphy
"There was a Publisher's Clearing House building company earlier this year that disqualified a prize winner because the company owner thought the winner's social media presence was too weak. Not fake, mind you, just not popular enough to be worth sponsoring."
"Matt Lauer! That dude got wiped from NBC history."
"Similarly Brian Williams. One of the most famous and trusted news anchors, running NBC nightly news for 11 years. Then a story broke about him having false or misleading reporting and comments from years earlier about the Iraq War, then he got the boot. Didn't fall as far - ended up doing some minor show on MSNBC, but a relatively huge and nearly instantaneous drop."
"Shabba Ranks. He was genuinely being described as 'the new Bob Marley'. Then he appeared on 'The Word' and stated that the punishment for homosexuality should be crucifixion. You can see almost see the exact moment his career ended."
"A pizza delivery guy was belittled out of tip by rude local car dealership employees. They went really off on one, treating him badly, and threatened to get the pizza delivery guy sacked. The incident was caught on camera, and the internet went out for revenge. The car dealership was review bombed and I think one of the colleagues were fired."
Oh LanceTour De France Sport GIF by holimitesGiphy
"Haven’t seen Lance Armstrong’s name yet. Scientists studied his body for years to find the cause of his incredible performance, just to have him openly admit to using steroids."
"Nelson Rockefeller was Governor of New York before serving as vice-president under Gerald Ford. He was found dead at his secret townhome. His wife wasn't there but his girlfriend was. She was 49 years younger than him."
"'Rockefeller's Law' states, 'Never do anything you wouldn't be caught dead doing.'"
Be better. Don't let life ruin who you are. It only takes an instant to take down who you are.
Certain countries just develop a reputation with the rest of the planet.
Sometimes it's earned, but sometimes it's way off base.
So what about Australia?
Are the rest of the Earth's stereotypes about the land down under fact or fiction?
Redditor Phrince_Prillip asked:
"Non-Australians, what's the first thing that comes to your head when you think of Australia?"
"P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney."
"Just keep swimming."
"A voice in my head saying 'You call that a knoif?'"
"Love the pronunciation of the word 'Knoife'."
"That's not a knoife. THIS is a knoife."
"I hate that my answer was kangaroos."
"I know more about Australia but f'king kangaroos pops up first."
"Kangaroos, yes. But specifically that kangaroos are just buff donkeys."
"Answering honestly, the first word that popped into my head when I read your question was vegemite."
"Now I want some Vegemite."
"Please don't make the mistake everyone makes. Remember, it's not chocolate. This has been the Australian Government Department of Vegemite Health and Safety."
"Funded by the Australian Government Canberra."
"If you are a foreigner, the first time you eat vegemite, it should be spread so thin that it is a light brown smear. Half a pea size might be too much for one piece of bread."
"Now if you are an aussie and still do that amount, you are weird."
"The Great Barrier Reef. It’s a dream of mine to see it one day."
"Better book yr ticket soon…"
"I guess my dream is dead in the water, literally."
"People say it's all dead but there's still an enormous amount of living reef to be seen. It's definitely worth going to."
"Summer during end of the year, December."
"For whatever reason, we still play all the old Christmas songs. even White Christmas, when it's summer and like 40°C (104° F) outside."
"Christmas on the beach is sensational."
"When I was a kid it was my life goal to meet Steve Irwin, I was obsessed with the man. When he passed I was absolutely inconsolable for days."
"Also, does anyone remember the episode where he lays with his dog [Sui] before she passes? I've been trying to find the clip and was never able to."
"No idea why I want to make myself cry but it was a really touching moment."
"Bless that wonderful person."
"We miss him, my eyes just watered from thinking about him, he was my first ever celebrity death, and I was devastated as a young boy."
"Ooh! Saltwater crocodiles!! I'd forgotten how big they can get."
🎵 You better run, you better take cover...🎶
"Men at Work’s 'Down Under' automatically started playing in my head when I read the word Australia."
"German here, now living in Australia."
"Before: heavy drinkers, kangaroos and koalas."
"Now: Huntsman spiders, bushfires, flooding and heavy fines for everything."
"Twas an early morning after a big night with my mates. Everyone was sleeping, and I got up from the couch to go to the toilet or whatever."
"I came back to witness a chunky Huntsman spider walking across the tiled floor, toward my friend's bedroom door."
"I could hear its footsteps."
"The big spiders are fine, it’s the tiny ones that will kill you."
A lot of animals made the list, but koalas, echidna and wallabies did not.
Did anything else synonymous with Australia get forgotten?
What do you think when you hear Australia?

Cute and cuddly goes a long way when it comes to human opinions on our fellow fauna.
But the animals that prey on the cuter critters or are a bit bitey or less than lovely never fare as well in the court of public opinion.
While some animals are as vicious as their reputation claims—looking at you honey badger—others are simply misunderstood.
Redditor MrBonelessPizza24 asked:
"What animals have a bad reputation they don’t deserve?"
"At least in my area of the US, the buzzards [turkey vultures] clean up the trash and dead animals on the roads. Yes, they are not pretty to look at but they do the job barely anyone wants to do."
"Fun fact about vultures. In India because cows are revered they would euthanize old or sick ones with a special chemical as it was deemed the most humane way to do it. However despite having an almost steel trap of a stomach this chemical was also killing the vultures."
"The vultures would usually eat the dead cattle when they were decomposing. As a result decomposing cows were no longer being consumed and were beginning to spread sickness to the people around them."
"The Indian government had to make a change to the way cows were euthanized and as a result the vulture population bounced back and sickness due to proximity of rotting cow corpses went down."
"Vultures are very important to the ecosystem, but are usually treated badly because of their primary purpose within it. They shouldn't be, they provide an integral piece of it."
"Himalayan cultures have to assist the scavenger birds by cutting up their dead and feeding it to the scavenger birds."
"Where they are above the frost line nothing really decomposes. It's also much too cold for burial."
"I'm sure they appreciate the birds, as they'd have died of disease without their assistance."
"It's extinct, but Oviraptor."
"Back in the day the first one found was a well preserved specimen lying in a clutch of eggs."
"Not much was known about oviraptor eggs at the time but these seemed to be from a much larger species, so it was thought that the critter died trying to get a free meal, so the paleontologist gave it the name 'Egg theif'."
"Years later, a really well preserved clutch of eggs was found, with perfect baby Oviraptor skeletons inside."
"The original specimen was a mother that died trying to protect its eggs, not trying to eat them. But because of paleontologys' 'first come, first served' rules in regards to naming things it will be forever known as a thief."
"People think they're evil just because sometimes they're scavengers, and they were known to pick at bodies when public executions were still a thing."
"Because of that they're forever the symbol of death and many people think they're evil."
"Plus, they are pretty smart."
"Humans taste disgusting apparently and sharks prefer something with blubber like seals or whales. Sharks have very very poor eyesight so they often mistake surfers for seals (imagine someone laying down on a surf board, it looks like a seal from below)."
"They aren’t entirely sure what humans are and sometimes they’ll do a test nibble to check. Then will go away once they realize that it’s not a seal."
"Unfortunately their test nibbles aren’t very gentle but also aren’t fatal as long as no major arteries were hit."
"You’re more likely to be killed by a cow than a shark."
"Most cows will not really hesitate to walk up to a human which could lead to a dangerous situation. A shark on the other hand?"
"Most sharks will quickly disappear into the depths the second they see a human. Hammerhead sharks, in particular, want absolutely nothing to do with us and will bolt on sight."
"Unless you're splashing around at the surface of the water, the chances of actually getting attacked by a shark unprovoked are super low. Cows seem more likely to attack unprovoked."
"Bats. They eat more insects in one night than a spider will in a month. And they're rarely aggressive."
"Bats aren't harmless. They are a carrier of rabies, which is deadly to humans and animals alike. You should definitely be *wary of them."
"They are wild animals, and though they aren't usually confrontational, that doesn't make them friendly, either. All I ask is if they are not bothering you, leave them alone."
"If they are, then please, do something about it. I don't want anyone to feel like they are obligated to allow bats to nest in their chimney or attic."
"Bats belong in the wild, not in your house."
"Gulls are actually really expressive and very social, so they're fun to watch."
"Mature gulls in flight are quite beautiful over the ocean."
"The reason they go after people's food is because people feed them."
"I’ll admit that I am one of the feeder people. When I’m fishing, I give some gulls (and other shorebirds) some of the bait."
"They love me and tend to keep the families and other fishermen and fisherwomen far enough away from me to satisfy my hate of socialization."
"[North American] Possums. They are very disease resistant."
"They are unlikely to carry rabies, because their body temperature is too low for the rabies virus to thrive."
"They also eat ticks!"
"They are even more adorable than the other cats and I don't understand why they have become the most known symbol of bad luck."
"We've had 3. Each one was as awesome as the next."
"They still have different personalities, but black cats seem to have bolder personalities."
"Honey bees. People are terrified but the last thing a honeybee wants to do is sting you."
"They just want to work. They are gentle creatures with personality and moods."
"Most people can’t tell the difference between bees and wasps and assume bees will behave like wasps."
"We are so large compared to bees that they actually only see us as environmental markers. When they see us, they see a mountain, not a giant."
"They might sting your hand if they mistake it for an adversary, but they don’t care about you."
"They evolved to recognize other insects as predators. You are too big to register as living."
"Just kidding—f'k mosquitoes."
"Came here to see if anyone would defend mosquitoes."
"I would have then assumed that "person" was in fact a sentient mosquito. And never went outside again."
"Mosquitos have a vital role in the ecosystem. They are the food of some animals like frogs and dragonflies."
"They are vegetarian most of the time; they eat nectars. They only bite when they are pregnant; they need the protein in blood for the eggs."
"BUT, mosquitos also have the most number of humans killed. They are the carrier of many diseases like malaria and dengue fever."
"Apparently only 6% of mosquito species feed on humans, and only half of that actually carries deadly diseases."
All life on Earth evolved into a niche in the food chain.
While the extinction of one species might not topple the ecosystem, it does have an impact.

"Legend" is a descriptor often associated with those who are fearless, audacious, and awe-inspiring.
Curious to hear about the people who've left quite an impression on others during high school, Redditor Nearby-Level6472 asked:
"What made the 'high school legend' become a legend?"
These legends each had their distinctive methods for attaining their status.
"Our legend was actually the gym teacher. He became a legend by getting hit by a bus, getting up, getting on the bus and asking if everyone was OK. He ended up getting fired about 5 years after I graduated because he was caught soaking raisins in vodka and then eating them over the course of the day. Never change Mr. Lev."
"His last name was 'Alcock' and he ran for student council..."
"His campaign posters consisted simply of his slogan:"
"Part man...Part machine...ALCOCK."
"My brother ran in to the statue of our high school mascot with his truck at night. Knocked the bulldog off it's platform then threw it in the back of the truck. It ended up in a pond out by our house. My brother, who was a massive wallflower in school, and never told a soul until he mentioned it to me over some beers in our 30s."
"No one ever knew who it was but it was a big deal and I remember tons of allegations, accusations, and rumors as to how our mascot disappeared. Never in my life would I have ever suspected my brother."
"Legendary in my eyes."
"When I was in 11th grade, a guy a year older than me, in grade 12, saved a grade 9 girl from being abducted by her estranged father in the school parking lot. Her dad hadn't been in her life for years and had previously tried to take her from her elementary school. This being her first year in high school, I guess he tried again. The 12th grader heard her scream as her dad tried to force her into his car and he ran over and got involved, apparently punching the dad before the dad got back in his car and sped off."
"Guy was a legit hero at the school."
The Heroic Reader
"Not high school but elementary school. We had this system where if we read a book we could take a quiz online ab the book and we'd get points for how much of it we got correct and at the end of the year the students that had a certain amount of points got to go to this after school party with waterslides and food trucks and it was a alot of fun. Anyways, this buddy of mine would read all these big long hard books (they were worth the most points) and hed take the quizes, write down the answers and pass them around to other students and by the end of the year, there were ab 50 students who went to that party including myself all thanks to him. Hope youre doing alright James!"
"During gym class we noticed people's change and stuff would go missing here and there, as it was a british school with uniforms and blazers etc. Someone left their ipod recording in their blazer pocket and we caught the girl who'd been stealing our change red handed LMAO. It was so crazy bc she was like the richest kid, she was actually a semi-successful child actor who'd been in several shows."
"So, 'legend' in this case means f'king lunatic. He took the teacher's thermos from the back of the room, not knowing it was hers. He goes to the bathroom, with the thermos. Comes back, with the thermos. She says, 'Oh, you found my thermos! Great, thanks! Just put it on my desk.' He does, and then walks out of the room wordlessly. She opens the thermos in confusion."
"He sh'*t in the thermos."
These legends were never seen by anyone on campus, but their presence was very palpable.
The Mystery Prank
"Halfway through my last year of high school someone managed to put a ceramic toilet on top of our multi story gymnasium. I have no idea how that feat was achieved. The school staff didn't know either, nor could they figure out how to get it OFF the roof once they found it. As a result it remained on the gym for the remainder of my time there."
"I never found out who did it, but I will admire them until my dying day."
These Conspiracy Theories Are Easy to Debunk | George Takei’s Oh Myyy
"Someone installed games onto the schools server. There were a bunch of N64 emulators, Peggle, and some other games. But then there were also LAN games that could be played against anyone/everyone in the school including Counterstrike and Halo. Sometimes you'd go on and there'd be no one, other times there'd be 10v10 fight in Blood Gulch."
"It lasted at least 10 years but don't know if it has been taken down since."
He Was Untouchable
"Joe Sticka, class of 1969 at my HS. The guy didn't exist. He was created by a group of my friends as a mid-year transfer student with a totally fabricated deep background that was so smooth 'Joe' even made the yearbook with a 'picture unavailable' caption."
Some legends are so over-the-top, they put on quite a show.
Best Costume, To Be Frank
"It's pretty stupid but a friend wore a Walmart hot dog costume and for some reason everyone thought it was funny, started chanting hot dog kid and he won the best Halloween costume award of that year."
"Next year he wore a penguin costume and as he stepped up on stage he ripped it off to reveal the hotdog costume underneath. Everybody f'king lost it. Sadly we have a rule that you can't win 2 years in a row so while he didn't get the prize we all knew who had the best costume that day"
"That is how the legend of hot dog kid was born at my high school."
"In ninth grade, one of our teachers got sick so we got a sub. And this kid just starts talking in a strong Spaniard accent (like super well) and convinces the teacher he is from Spain. And he talks this way FOR THREE MONTHS. It was hilarious. And when another kid tried talking as a Spaniard too, he got really upset and accused the other kid of mocking his culture etc. Then when the year ended we had to do a presentation and our teacher who got sick came! So the kid just nodded through the whole presentation while his group mates talked. It was hilarious."
"He cut his thumb off on a third floor window 5 minutes before final bell and busses. Getting all of us locked in the school of an hour as the ambulance arrived took him away and the school cleaned everything up."
Legend In The Flesh
"We had a carbon monoxide leak at my high school one day in which the entire school was evacuated to the football field. The leak was taking so long to fix, that eventually local news cameras started showing up. At about the 3 hour mark of waiting on the football field, one of the seniors ran naked across the entire length of the football field, IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE SCHOOL. He ran straight at the cameras that were pointed at the field, hopped the fence, and ran across a busy intersection... butt naked."
"One of the funniest things I've ever seen. Every single person, including the teachers, was laughing hysterically."
"Kid became a legend that day for sure."
"When I was a freshman, there was a senior on the last week of school who thought it would be legendary to streak on campus. He was 18. He was unable to receive his diploma on stage and had to register as a sex offender."
"To add to this, I agree that his punishment was harsher than what seems fair. Taking away his ability to walk on stage in addition ro community service would have been better. & in regards to where this occurred, this was in a suburban high school in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles."
"Someone spread a rumor that Legend had a small pp. He responded by photocopying his Johnson and leaving the pictures on the desks of everyone in the class. He got suspended but set the rumors straights. BDE for sure."
Many young adults feel invincible, but the decisions they make can be a fine line between legendary and pure insanity.
Legends earn their reputation after engaging in ridiculous stunts. If they succeed, the status is earned. If they fail, they fade into obscurity after being laughed off or pitied.
Did you have what it took to become legend, or were you happy just being average?
Personally, I was just happy to survive what I thought was a brutal period in my life.
For me, being a survivor of high school makes me a legend in my own eyes, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
