“My friend bullied and pressured me to go spelunking, so I caved”

"Caving” is also known as “spelunking” in the United States. “Cave” also means to cease to resist (to submit).

“RT @YUCKYBOT: My friends convinced me to go spelunking with them after months of badgering. I caved under pressure” was posted on Twitter by i’m ed on August 16, 2010. “I’ve always been resistant to trying out spelunking, but eventually I caved” was posted on Twitter by Rabbi Josh Yuter on April 11, 2011. “My friends kept pestering me to go spelunking with them.  Eventually I caved in” was posted on Twitter by Michael Parisi on September 10, 2011. “My friend bullied and pressured me to go spelunking… So I caved” was posted on Reddit—Cleanjokes on December 11, 2021.


Wikipedia: Caving
Caving – also known as spelunking in the United States and Canada and potholing in the United Kingdom and Ireland – is the recreational pastime of exploring wild cave systems (as distinguished from show caves). In contrast, speleology is the scientific study of caves and the cave environment.

I’ve been desperately battling with my spelunking addiction. It’s been 6 months since I last potholed…
But today I caved.
