Lie about where you come from
At the beginning of high school everyone is from God knows where, very few people know where most of their friends come from.
The true ninja’s when it comes to faking backgrounds are the ones who make their lives seem more luxurious than they are. One would think their families live in LA’s fabulous Beverly Hills. The vision goes on till visitation day, when the ‘Prime Minister’s son’ is visited by some not so high status individual. That’s when they say, ‘Oh, that’s not my dad, he sent a friend. BUSTED!!!
Borrow money you can’t pay back
Around S3, teens tend to want everything they see their friends with even when they can’t afford it. That’s when the borrowing starts. Whenever someone is in urgent need of money, they will make up stories just to convince the lender that it will be paid back soon. When reimbursement time comes, they realise that the money they borrowed is actually quite a lot and they have no idea how to pay it back. YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT, LEAVE IT!
Talk ill about a friend
In high school, whenever there is someone to gossip about, kids gather like flies and listen well. But the thing is, word has a way of reaching the subject of the topic, whether the conversation was in a crowd or just between two people because there is always someone more than willing to send the message and tell on those who spoke! GOSSIP IS USELESS!
Believe you are immune to taking orders!
Some teens want to show their classmates how untouchable they are, they continue with insubordinate behaviour till they find themselves in problems so deep, it will take a miracle to pull them out. Someone who was merely told to kneel in front of the class for about 30 minutes wakes up to find they are facing suspension! WHAT’S WORSE?
