#16 I’m Not Pregnant, Just Fat
When I was in school there was a girl who was overweight and as a result of how she carried that weight, looked quite pregnant. Teachers kept pulling her and her parents into conferences to talk about it, and after however many times it happened, the parents got pissed and got the school to agree that they would no longer “alert” the parents or counselors if they thought the girl was pregnant.
About a year later she stopped showing up to school (this was sophomore or junior year of high school). There were mad rumors about what happened, that she got involved with some older kids, ran to Mexico, got busted robbing 7/11…turns out she had finally, actually been pregnant and was attempting to give birth, alone, in the bathroom at home before her parents figured it out. —silversatire
