People Explain Which Rules Were Instutituted In Their School Because Of Their Behavior

Life in school wasn't always fun. Most of the time it was mind-numbingly boring and excruciating.

But it can be fun to reminisce. It can be especially fun to think about all of the things you did that were not exactly "by the rules," including the ones that caused new rules to arise.


u/RetroFr asked:

What school rule had to be put in place because of you?

Here were some of those answers.

Didn't Know We Needed This In Writing

Not me, but because of my graduating class' senior prank, "motorcycles are not allowed to be driven inside the building."

Phrasing?!

My science teacher banned the phrases "shut up", "you suck", and "your mom" because of my class. And he wrote them in the whiteboard and it looks like " shut up, you suck your mom" and me and my friends had a good laugh about that.

Panic

While in film school all of the tripods had to have bright pink tape on it after my friend and I managed to cause a major lockdown when a teacher thought the tripod we were carrying was a large gun. It was a pretty wild fuck up. It was the largest SWAT response in Canadian history at the time and caused trauma to a bunch of students and teachers. All because a teacher couldn't do a double take.

Marching Band Interference

I figured out what pitch the buzzer was at our basketball games. Turns out it's hilarious to count down the shot clock early and then play your instrument(s) obnoxiously loud at that pitch to make the opposing team take a shot. It also turns out the Mountain West Conference will also shut that down by the next season.

Alcoholic Beverages

It wasn't just me it was a group effort but we convinced a kid to drink hand sanitizer... he ended up having to get his stomach pumped. So hand sanitizer was banned from the entire school... I'm still friends with him to this day 10 years later

Photoshopz

No Photoshop on the school computers. A section of our school computers had some of the Adobe suite, including Photoshop. I was caught, at thirteen years old, aggressively photoshopping my Principal and the Vice Principal onto a still from a porn video. Parents were called, and they had to delete that software they probably spent hundreds of pounds on.

We Can't Let People Know We Drink Water!!!

Water banned on test days.

I was on accutane and played sports, so I drank a LOT of water. I carried a gallon jug with me everywhere. On the day of finals, I accidentally dropped the jug. It smashed open on the desk and multiple students' answer sheets were destroyed.

Gender Roles

//Boys can't wear skirts in school//

Late 80's. It was a very hot year and the rules said pants or skirts must be worn in school. So a few of us boys wore skirts to school because we wanted to make a point about them being more like shorts and much cooler than pants. The skirts were all ankle length and much cooler than jeans. They out us in detention and changed the rule language to include gender about articles of clothing. Very rural town. We pissed off a lot of people.

No 2 Tickets

Not me, my younger sister. Circa 1993. Her group of friends senior year was a tight group of boys and girls, some dating, many not, who all wanted to do prom together. Tickets could only be bought for two - couple tickets, as it were - so my sis and her female friend bought their ticket together. Neither my sister nor her friend happened to be gay, but the school didn't know or care.

They felt it appropriate to call the parents to make sure they knew what their daughters were doing. No male/female couples were called. My mother is smart as a whip and likes nothing more than to take on authority. She gave that principal a legendary tongue lashing about "just what was he implying" and "why would that matter, if true?"

From that day forth, prom tickets are sold individually at that school.

Pet Pet

The fence behind the school was closed after me and my friend would go to the supermarket and comeback. The teachers didn't know that they just saw us going to the open fence one day and asked us what we are doing and we said we were touching stray cats. (part of me wanted to say touching pussies but it was a Catholic school and my 2nd week there). And they closed it.

People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
