All of these teachers clearly arrived to school after getting a speeding ticket, getting dumped, or getting too hungover.

These poor whipper snappers felt the wrath.


It's strange to think about all those times a teacher freaked out for something that made absolutely no sense to freak out about.

You're sitting there, a 7 year old kid still in the process of understanding the rules of your reality. Then this adult--the authority on everything ever up to this point--comes along and vents because of a bad day. But that venting results in you growing up with the full conviction that, say, playing cards during lunch is a profoundly immoral act.

But, my friend, you are in good company.

Make it Snappy, You Twerp

I got yelled at for blowing my nose for too long

The Right to Assemble

I sang happy birthday with a whole bunch of my friends to someone at lunch and we were to split up because it was "inappropriate."

The Avant-Garde

In the same year i learned to write, i got in trouble for showing my teacher i could write upside down while not looking. I was super Proud of it for some reason, but i guess i was not taking my writing seriously

One False Move Is All It Takes

We would get class posters in school. Same pictures that would end up in your yearbook photos. They came in these little cardboard tubes and also had a rubber band around it.

As I was taking off the rubber band, I accidentally let go of it and it flung across the classroom. Instant Saturday school detention for "flicking rubber bands at students".

I got yelled at for not saying "good morning" back to another teacher.

Cooties

I'm in the middle of science class and we're supposed to be doing some quiet activity sheet, so I raise my hand to ask to use the bathroom. the teacher is a harda** and says that I should have gone during break between class. I said to her, no really I'm about to vomit, she infers that I'm lying and that I need to get back to work on my sheet. So I walked up to her, handed her the competed activity sheet, and threw up on her lap.

she calls security and tells them I intentionally assaulted her with vomit. I was suspend for 2 days and my parents had to threaten legal action against the school district to get the suspension reversed. Turns out I had the norovirus.

The Old Bait and Switch

My mate was meant to get into trouble over something I did, I told the teacher I did it, she extended his for some reason. I never got one for it

u/f*ck_this_im_uwu

Cuff Em

Plagiarism. I didn't use the correct MLA format two years before we learned about it, and was chewed out as if I had claimed I wrote the Magna Carta.

We had to sculpt a clay bust, then glaze and fire it. I made mine a black man. I had to go explain to the principal why I made mine black and a letter went home. I'm white, no black kids went to the school. This was fifth grade, I had/have no idea why it was an issue and neither did my family.

u/McGician

A Real Wordsmith Over Here

We were reading a Shakespeare play in HS English at a private school. The teacher asked if anyone knew what a line meant, where a character is talking about a pen as if it were a penis. When she asked, whole class said "penis" and I said "wang."

I got a detention for using 'inappropriate language,' because I didn't use the clinical term.

Silence, Children!

In primary school we weren't allowed to talk during lunch. Go fu**ing figure why but people who did had to go stand in the corner until the others were finished. I had to go too.

u/JimmySaulGene

Groove or Face the Consequences

I almost got kicked out of prom for "being drunk", simply because I didn't want to dance. I was sitting at the table watching everyone else's stuff and three staff members dragged me outside to ask me how much I had to drink that day.

u/SpitefulNoodle

Immediate Karma

Was sick and ask to go to the bathroom. Teacher said no. I vomited in her trash can. She tried to get me expelled. I can still hear my dad laughing in the principals office

u/NutandMax

No Exploring!

I got a letter sent home and yelled at and humiliated in front of the entire class because... I climbed on top of a pile of snow.

u/imvital

Framed

The cameras "caught me poking holes in the back of a school bus seat" on the same day my mother got a call from the school saying I had missed too many days of school while sick... which was received because I missed that day.

Long story short, I shared the seat with a goodie two-shoes kid and they just automatically pushed the blame on me because I was a bit of a brat.

I'd Have to Pee So Bad in a Game Like That

We weren't allowed to run or play games on the play structures. One time we got in trouble for playing hide and seek and they made us go play it in the field. We only had one tree so it was a pretty shi**y game of hide and seek.

What Scarcity Brings

Back when I was in hs my school banned salt. So I literally had to smuggle salt to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Kids were also selling it. It was ridiculous.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
