Between essays, exams, science labs and group projects, the demands of college can push even the most seasoned students to the brink of insanity.
In fact, I think it's safe to say that at some point, we've all looked up from our textbooks in the wee hours of the morning, polished off a Red Bull and stared off into oblivion, contemplating whether we should finish reading those last five chapters or just give up and become a stripper.
If you don't believe me, just ask Aissa Sencion.
Recently, Aissa was having a bit of a tough time with school and consequently told her mom she was going to drop out of college to pursue a career in stripping.
While most parents would laugh off this empty threat, Aissa's mom decided to use this as an opportunity to teach her daughter a lesson you can't learn in school.
That's right. Instead of telling Aissa to get back to the books, this mom ruthlessly trolled her daughter by encouraging her to follow her dreams of becoming a stripper in the most hilarious way possible.
She sent Aissa a special package containing a note that read, "I thought this would be a great first outfit for the start of your wonderful career."
It also contained an outfit -- a leather lingerie outfit, to be exact.
It seems Aissa's mom probably sent the gift as a way to give her daughter a real life glimpse of her future as an exotic dancer and hopefully scare her into finishing school.
Aissa posted a picture of her mom's funny note along with a photo of the sexy leather ensemble on Twitter.
Now people are responding to this mom's prank and commenting with a variety of reactions.
It appears some people missed the point of the whole thing, and said the stripper get-up was actually a really cute outfit.
In fact, some even commended Aissa's mom for having great taste in stripper lingerie.
Other people poked fun at the prank, asking why their parents couldn't be as supportive as this mom.
Plus, one person even said this little threat was a way better tactic than simply yelling at your kids.
Seriously, who knew all it took was a leather corset to convince your kids to work hard in school?
