Man gets pranked by friend on moving day 🤡

In this post, a man recounts a highly uncomfortable experience with a female friend who played a prank on him. After Jess orders pizza for the two of them as a way of thanking him for helping her move, she begins inching closer to him on the couch. Thinking that she is making a move, he asks if he can kiss her, and she immediately gets up and reveals that her friend put her up to testing him.

The man feels hurt and betrayed by the prank and talks to his sister, who agrees that it was disgusting behavior. The next day, instead of helping Jess move, he decides to flake and go to work instead, leading to a falling-out.

The man is now wondering if he was wrong. Stay tuned for the comments and reactions to this post.
