    'Now He's A Superstar Slamming On His Guitar'

    From Redditor /u/Gonzostewie

    I play in a band. We got booked by a restaurant "for some class reunion". I show up to set up for the gig & it's my f*cking class. I wasn't even invited.

    And The Winner Is...

    From Redditor /u/Surullian

    At my 10th, the organizers gave "awards" to people for various reasons. One girl from our class was given an award for having the "most kids" of anyone there. She'd had 4 by different guys which was part of the announcement. The look on her face as she slinked up to the podium said it all.

    Act Normal!

    From Redditor /u/honey579badger

    When I was like 6 I went to my dad's small town 30(?) year reunion. His ex-fiancé (not my mom) was dressed in her prom dress. And kept talking to me saying she should have been my mommy. Even then I knew that was weird. Keep your [bonkers], in lady.

    Underworld Reunion

    From Redditor /u/greenVneck

    Two of our classmates [passed] before our five-year reunion. One of the girls organizing the event thought it would be a good idea to make cardboard cutouts of their faces, as if “they were truly still here with us.” The worst part was that people got drunk and started toting them around, taking pictures with them. It was f*cked up.
