      I have a weird school story you could use if you ever decide to add youtube comments into the reddit story mix!

      I was 12 when this happened
      I went to science class (I'm female) and I look emo
      I had a black hoodie hood was up and my male teacher rubs my head secretly while taking my hood off. It actually happened today! My best friend told the counselor
      I also heard a rumor that hes a perv and pedophile
      Fuck you Mr. Mertens

    My school has it so you can only have blue black and grey socks. You heard me right. S O C K S.

    • Queen is Love, Queen is Life.

      No high fives, no fist bumps, no hugs, no handshakes, no holding doors, no talking at lunch, no running at recess. This was elementary school.
      I also single handedly banned silly bands. I think I was in third grade when those got super popular, and one day I wore all of them on my arms. I had hundreds of those suckers. Lost circulation, and got them banned. The first and last kid to whip em out at recess to let the trading commence was in serious trouble for bringing contra banned items. Those five silly bands were treated the same way a knife was.

        Teachers still think that they can hold you after the bell makes me laugh. It's actually illegal to hold.back students like that. So piece of advice: whenever a teacher says wait after the bell rings just walk out because they can't do shit anyway.

          I hate it when teachers say “the bell doesn’t dismiss u, I do” well isn’t that funny, bc that’s actually called the dismissal bell

            Why do teachers say the bell doesn’t dismiss you, it’s not just a suggestion

              At my school we got a new principal and he made rules like no being out of class rooms within the first 10 and last 10 minutes of class. He even won’t let us have are phones at breakfast or lunch and if your caught by a teacher, they will take it and keep it for like 2 weeks.

                  No touching at all, no hugging, no holding hands, no skin on each other. This was in middle school.

                      I heard a rumour from a teacher that at the Junior School (elementary school) section of my school last year, the kids were banned from mentioning fortnite at recess and lunchtimes because it apparently caused "bullying issues". So basically if teachers heard kids talking about their victory royales, they were politely asked to shift their conversation.

                      Firstly: wtf
                      Secondly: If you want to stop bullying, that's not gonna help
                      Thirdly: it's not like they're not gonna shift their conversation back to fortnite
                      Fourthly: wtf

                            The school with no soap thing is so annoying. The soap dispensers were always empty, and there was only one year wher they were filled. Everyone used to carry around those scented hand sanitisers in their pockets

                                    I remember in elementary school there was a field trip and a bunch of people screwed up (I don’t remember the details) and I had done nothing and all my class mates insisted that as well but the teacher still made me go and I had to sit in the cafeteria floor and get yelled at for not doing anything

                                      In second grade we had a thing called “whisper Wednesday’s” were everyone had to whisper if they wanted to talk. Like you would be able to shut up a bunch of 8 year olds

                                          Had a sign out sheet I high school that you had to write your name, date, teacher, time left, and time back every time you had to get a drink or take a dump. It would take a long time to fill it out so I just wrote my name on it and didn't bother writing everything else but once some bitch watched me get up, walk across the room and write my name, she yelled to the teacher "HE NEVER WROTE ON THE TIME SHEET" and she was in grade 11. I just walked out anyway and got back and the teacher told me to write on the thing but I said that's stupid you saw me come back and went to the office because I never wrote down the detailed coordinates of the location I took a shit

                                                I think I am one of the few people who's went to 3 different high schools and NOT A SINGLE ONE had any extreme rules... and dress codes? Non existent. We could walk around with our ass cheeks showing for all they cared. Kids would perform oral on each other in the middle of the hall. The school I graduated from was a year- round independent study charter school. Half way though my senior year, I decided to randomly take 4 months off of school without notifying anyone. Worst they did was call my parents a couple times and ask when I would be back. I just did my own thing. Despite doing this, I got straight A+ all year and won a reward for doing the most credits out of anyone the month I showed up again. (At this school, they gave you big packets- 1 credit earned per packet- and you had to do the entire packet to their standards to move on. You got to move entirely at your own pace.) It was pretty awesome. Downside is that now I've got an even bigger problem with authority than I started out with and can hardly stand being given rules or directions. Oops.

                                                              Edit: actually one rule, no fight club. The underclassmen would fake a fight and have this one kid who thought it was real try and break it up. They thought it was funny. The kid left the school to be homeschooled half way through (idk why) but it continued. Eventually people started getting actually hurt, but because it was supposed to be a fake fight both people in the fight were chill after the lunch bell rang. The principle started getting fed up with it but he didn’t do much of anything to make sure it stopped he just said that we can’t call it fight club anymore. Now it’s only two kids who ever get pushed up against lockers but like twenty other kids who are all crowding them so like those two kids get hurt every once in a while by accident.

It did absolutely nothing to stop us from talking, and when I asked my teacher about it, she said “but we can more easily catch people talking!” And I was like no you never catch anyone that’s the problem.

                                                                                            We got technology one a week, sport every day. Teacher did sport.

                                                                                            Supposed to be doing sport, instead we’re in the hall. I’ve been a bit silly so far, but nothing that big. I look over and see my little brother is sad. I start to shuffle over on my knees, to see if he’s ok. Suddenly he yells out “[MY NAME] GO TO [MY TEACHER]” I ask why, and he says GOODBYE. then I ask where she is, because I didn’t know. He yells GOOBYE. This repeats a few times, then I say, “Goodbye then!” And wave. All the kids in the hall wave too 🤣 good times

                                                                                            Also he is REALLY loud. I mean loud. And he was using a microphone for the whole story above. Apparently the kids on the oval had heard him. (Australian school, kind of open campus setting. Ovals kinda close, but you shouldn’t be able to hear noise from the hall there.)
