GW urban legends for freshmen
Seeing as a brand new class of stupid naive freshmen will soon be gracing the streets of DC, I though I would reminisce about some of the stories that I was told (and believed) when I myself was a lowly freshman. I remember someone, I think a girl on my crew team, told me to never throw out my receipts that corresponded with a GWorld purchase, or at least not in front of any upperclassmen. The reason for this was that upperclassmen were notorious, apparently, for stealing freshmen receipts and using them to somehow tap into the precious Gworld dollars. I was terrified of this and was convinced every upperclassman who looked at me was secretly plotting to steal all my Gworld money and I would brutally starve to death. I horded every single one of my Gworld receipts for a good month or so. But seeing how there is no way to steal money from a Gworld using receipts, I think my extra precautions were unnecessary and perhaps just a bit paranoid. Did anyone else have a story told to them as a freshman, to scare them into or out of doing something?
