The Praying Mantis Prank: A Friendship Fiasco!

Well, well, well... looks like our bug-fearing protagonist found herself in quite a sticky situation! A birthday sleepover turned into a horror show when her so-called friends decided to pull a cruel prank involving a pet praying mantis. In a moment of panic, our poor girl accidentally crushed the creepy-crawly, and now her "friends" are demanding she pay up! The audacity! But wait, there's more! Turns out these gals have a bit of a bad rep at school. Our protagonist's mom stepped in and laid down the law, blocking the mean girls and promising to have a chat with their moms. Talk about drama! Now, let's see what the internet has to say about this buggy debacle!

NTA comment suggests a fair trade for therapy session cost.
