2. Even though it meant being stereotyped as a farmer, despite the fact that you may not have actually been one.

It's understandable why this happens, but to the shock of most people, not everyone in YFC is a farmer.

5. And The Young People's Village in particular involved the consumption of way too much alcohol.

6. Not to mention drinking your own body weight in Jägerbomb's at YFC Barn Dances.

Red Bull may give you wings but after a night of Jägerbomb's you're more likely to end up on the floor than in the the sky.

7. With events like "Pub of the Month" it's no wonder that drinking is one of the most memorable things about YFC.

Because even the smallest victory gave you the right to brag.

11. It may have been light-hearted fun or a burning hatred, but chances are that there was a nearby club who you had a massive rivalry with.

12. You were almost shitting yourself with excitement when you found out about the travel opportunities YFC has.

14. Whether it was a one night fling or a serious relationship you probably know people who got together through YFC.

But if they broke up there was always some awkward tension at YFC meetings between them.
