People Divulge Which High School Rumors Actually Turned Out To Be Absolutely True

When I was in high school, there was a rumor that a girl had broken into a guy's locker and set his belongings on fire after he broke up with her. (I'm still not sure if that's true or not, but I remember that girl and let's just say that I wasn't a fan.) There was another rumor that one of the guys was having an affair with one of the teachers (which turned out not to be true, thank goodness, because I don't think any of my teachers were dumb enough to lose their careers over a relationship with a minor).

After Redditor RM_Fan234 asked the online community, "What was your high school 'rumor' that turned out to be true?" people shared their stories. Notice a certain theme?


"The English teacher was married..."

The English teacher was married to the gym teacher and she was cheating on him with the principal.

"Everyone knew..."

A student and teacher were dating. Everyone knew it wasn't a rumor, and it was VERY CONFIRMED recently when they got married on The Drew Barrymore Show.

"I'm pretty sure..."

As cliche as it sounds, the AP chemistry teacher actually was a drug dealer. He was arrested a few years after I graduated. I'm pretty sure that it was mostly pot that he got caught with, but still.

"The head cheerleader..."

The head cheerleader and quarterback were a couple. They tried doggie in the back of his truck. He pulled out, and she had massive diarrhea all over the interior of his truck. That stink never came out.

Oh, dear.

Something tells me she never lived that one down.

"Turns out..."

There was a rumor going around for a while that I was a lesbian. Turns out they just knew before I did.

Funny how that works!

And yes, that's often how it works out.

"There was always this rumor..."

There was always this rumor that our principal had a liquor bottle in his desk drawer. Fast forward a few years and he got a DUI, lost his license for a year, and had to apologize in front of the whole school.

"The band director..."

The band director had a very brief affair with an 18-year-old senior. He immediately regretted it and admitted it, and lost his job, naturally.

"He survived..."

Rumor: A kid accidentally cut his hand off with a hatchet at a Work Day for his youth group and bled to death.

Reality: He cut his hand off while cutting wood at home with...I think it was a handsaw or something? He survived but he had a prosthetic.

"He got caught again..."

We had a math teacher and a gym teacher that slept with a few girls. Only the math teacher got caught. He got busted in his classroom during school hours. He didn't get in any trouble, they just transferred him to the other high school in our district. He got caught again at the other high school and the girl's parents pressed charges

What IS it with teachers sleeping with their students?

I don't get it, personally. Date people your own age––you'll have a much better time and you won't run afoul of the law.

Narcissism is never a particularly attractive quality.

Which is rather ironic, considering narcissists believe they are simply the be all and end all, that everyone wants them or wants to be them.

Yet spending extended periods of time with people who are so egregiously obsessed with themselves can be simply exhausting, as they frequently find a way of veering the conversation back to themselves.

Making it all the more tempting to give them a taste of their own medicine, and find a way to annoy them.

With more and more unfortunate stories about misconduct in the news, there is an understandably low opinion of police officers in the United States.

Though we should always remember that the corrupt or ill-suited cops we read about in the news do not represent all police officers.

For law enforcement is by all means necessary, and can be an extremely taxing job, both physically and emotionally.

With many police officers coming in contact with people who have gone through experiences no one deserves to go through.

The term "fan" is believed to be derived from "fanatic" or "fanatical.

Meaning "a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal".

Indeed, some fans simply can't hide their excitement for their favorite franchises, sports teams, recording artists, or political figures, no matter how hard they try.

Resulting in the birth of such monikers as "Trekkies", "Beliebers", or "Cumberb*tches."

And while these passionate, some might say obsessive, fan bases often find compatriots at conventions, premieres and meet-ups, those unfamiliar with the apples of their respective eyes might be confused by their level of fandom, if not down right annoyed.

People Share Subtle Signs That Someone Isn't A Good Person

Usually when we meet someone for the first time whether at a social function, at work, or randomly in public, we generally have a good Spidey sense about the type of person they are.

Even with alcohol in the mix, our instincts can be dulled but we still continue engaging with someone who seems outgoing and friendly enough at the bar.

But we also have the ability to tell right away if that person doesn't have good intentions.
