Someone Admitted To Rigging High School Superlative Award Box 13 Years Later And Drama Ensued

High school is a weird time because you are aware that you’re about to enter a much more meaningful part of your life with college and true adulthood ahead, but everything happening RIGHT NOW feels so damn important. That includes things like talent shows, prom kings and queens, football games, and yes, your Senior Superlative.

Who is Most Likely to Succeed? Who is the Class Clown? The student body takes these matters as seriously as a midterm election.

Marc Snetiker of shared a story that shows exactly how important these decisions are to kids even over a decade later, when they are all firmly adults.

He posted a screenshot of an old Facebook group for his high school in which a former Senior Leader admitted that they betrayed their sacred offices by stuffing the Superlative voting ballot box to award their friends as much as they could.

Snetiker wrote, “Someone from my high school just posted this on a 13-year-old Facebook group and everyone is SPIRALING.” The screenshot post reads:

Hey, guys! One more thing before I forget. In the spirit of the new year, I’d like to take this opportunity to confess to all of you that I, and one or two other members of Senior Leadership Council ’07 who will remain unnamed, interfered with the class of 2007 Senior Superlatives. this is not a joke.

We went to great lengths to forge no less than 30 filled out ballots, with all our friends and acquaintances winning their respective categories. We attempted to rig literally every category. it’s worth mentioning that not everyone we tried to fix the election for was victorious, and we could not rig the actual candidates being nominated in each category—those were 100% legit, as far as I know.

Wow! I feel such a weight lifted off my shoulders, having finally confessed this. thanks for reading.

I’ll just say it: L.O.L.

He also shared some screenshots of group chats he’s having with former high school friends whose entire sense of self is deteriorating.

The story has churned up a lot of memories from the past, as people shared stories of heartbreak, conspiracy, and lost crowns in the Twitter comments:

Gotta wonder what this week has been like for whoever was voted Most Likely to Succeed. Their whole life is a lie.
