We all thought the stuff we did in high school was normal, more or less. But as you get a little bit older, you also gain some perspective, which is great for moving forward, and maybe a little more cringe-inducing when it comes to looking back.
A tweet from @blKKstar set off a parade of people reminiscing about some of the more unfortunate things they did in high school, after she cited bringing her pet fish to school in a water bottle as a reason she “deserved to get bullied.”
Obviously nobody deserves to get bullied, but we can all understand looking back on certain moments in life with embarrassment that reaches the level of wishing someone would have somehow knocked some sense into us before we kept acting like fools.
And as indisputably weird as bringing a pet fish along with you to high school is, plenty of other people chiming in had questionable decisions of their own to throw into the conversation.
