Ever notice that whenever you whip out a pack of gum, everybody in the classroom instantly becomes your best friend?
Many of these people have never talked to you outside of class, but in the presence of your gum, they are suddenly devoted to you. However, they are just thirstin’ for your delicious piece of Prism-flavored Five gum. To avoid ridicule for being stingy, you reluctantly give up one piece of your freshly unwrapped, chewy delight – after which everybody else joins the huddle and hustles your gum.
They need to hop off.
