Young students are notorious for their rowdiness and horseplaying, but not all students are like that.
I was not the most serious in my class, but I certainly wasn't the most mischievous either.
On one rare occasion, I was roughhousing with a friend in between classes during middle school, and a teacher happened to walk by and accused us of fighting. The guy was so infuriated, there was no sense in explaining we were just messing around and not out to kill each other.
We were immediately sent to the principal's office. Once we convinced her that everything was okay, we were reprimanded for wasting her time. As a student, sometimes, you just can't win.
Curious to hear about the rambunctious tendencies from former students, Redditor The_Marcindale asked:
"What's the stupidest thing you got in trouble for at school?"
Schools thought these were examples of bad behavior
The Serial Texter
"Got Saturday detention for texting on my phone after school hours. There were no policies that said it was not allowed on school grounds or when I am allowed to use my phone. My high school was dumb."
Coughing = Bad
"Coughing/Sneezing because it was disruptive behaviour. Happened to several students at the start of the year, which prompted even more disruptive behaviour - this time on purpose."
Make No Mistake
"For correcting a teacher. How do you make a mistake when you have the text book open up in front of you."
They were guilty until proven not guilty.
Explosives And Alcohol In The Locker
"I bought an Rc car into school to take over to a friends house, somehow my locker was searched and the dean (horrid woman) tried to claim I had explosives because of the fuel. It didn't go anywhere, since the fuel was with an RC car ffs."
"Another time she searched my locker and claimed an empty Diet Coke bottle smelled of alcohol. Yeah she didn't like me, idk why."
Two John Smiths
"My name is John Smith. There was a kid in my school whose name was David John Smith but he went by John. He tended to get into trouble and the people in the office would look in their records for John Smith and I'd get called in."
"It would always get sorted out but the tone was always sort of 'okay, well, I guess we'll let you off this time.'"
"It was lunchtime, so everyone's rushing out to the cafeteria. It was very crowded. As I was moving along the crowd, I saw a kid running my way. So as not to get in trouble, I side-stepped. Then, out of nowhere, the Principal scolded me, telling me how I could've caused an accident because of what I did. But the kid that was running through the crowd got away scot-free."
The Ableist Teacher
"My grade 9 English teacher had it out for me cause I'm deaf. Always finding ways to belittle or put me on the spot without explicitly outing herself as an ableist even though I've always been a good student. A kid passed me a note during silent reading so I rejected it & she started yelling at me for passing notes. The kid even confessed I didn't do anything, it was all him. She still sent me into the hall which led to a series of mediation meetings later on. On that day though, when I got back to my seat he left another note on my chair saying "sorry :(" lol"
Sometimes, you can't help the way you look.
"My high school didn't allow ripped jeans at all. I was in my dance class (we weren't dancing that day) when I was bending down to sit on the floor and my jeans ripped at my knee. I got sent to the administrator's office for it."
"Being tall. I used to get bullied despite being taller than all the girls in my grade, because girls often fight with words, not fists. One girl was bullying me and it was getting really bad, so I went to a teacher to explain what was going on. She told me a girl that tiny couldn't bully me and I was probably misreading the situation. She then gave me some pointers on how to be less intimidating and basically instructed me to make myself smaller. She did not talk to the other girl. When things got worse, I was getting nasty prank calls at home and at school girls would insult my clothes.
I remember buying a sweater that was a popular brand amoungst the girls at school, to show everyone that I knew what was cool. Well, the brand didn't design clothes for very tall girls, so the sweater was a bit cropped on me compared to others. So of course, I got ripped apart for that. When I told the girl I was going to tell the teacher, she decided she would beat me to it. She told the teacher I purposely bought a sweater like hers to make fun of it. So the teacher told me to remove the sweater and not to wear it again because it was hurtful. I was so upset because I really liked that sweater. Unfortunately it died in my closet after that. Everytime I saw it I was reminded and I felt horrible.
"In middle school they made a ban on boys hugging girls because it was erotic."
"So I'm in the middle of hugging my sister and surprise I got in trouble for it BTW I was hugging her because I was comforting her because she was being bullied and the school did nothing about it."
Giving Hair Defense
"Catholic school tried to give me detention for long hair, my mom did not give a single sh*t, came into the school office and told them off. They never said anything about it again. She's the best."
There was one thing I did in eighth grade where I deserved the punishment.
I attended an open-campus school where we were located one block down from the mall. The setup could not be any better.
One day I ditched classes with some friends and we went to the arcade at the mall. It was the best day of my life up until that point.
Unfortunately, we returned to the campus, but not before fifth period was out. We got caught because we were just sitting ducks in the empty hallways. So it was off to detention after school.
It just meant I was able to spend more time with my buddies that day, so whatevs.
Trouble will find us no matter what. Even when we do our best to walk the straight and narrow... or do our best to cover our tracks, the universe will send justice. Justice often is sent in the form of mom and dad or 911. They will be swift and heavy and it makes going home the most nerve wracking experience. Home becomes the enemy but being naughty comes with consequences.
Redditor u/CosmicLuxray wanted everyone to open up some tales about naughty behavior by asking.... What was your "I'm f***ing dead when I get home" moment?
Don't be Dirty!Giphy
When i was a kid (grade 1) we got to wear our halloween costumes to school(i went as a doctor), and my mom told me to not get my costume dirty. Well we had painting time and of course i ended up with paint on the outfit. Hearing my moms words in my head i thought i was going to be in so much trouble, so my best idea was to hide in the cupboards until pick up time. I was so upset i had to show my mom my ruined outfit and cried when she picked me up. She ended up not being mad and we turned the splotches red with paint to make it a more 'realistic ' doctors outfit and all was saved. carrotcart
I was arrested as a teenager for graffiti and malicious damage. My mum had to leave work to come get me out of lock up. That car trip home was horrifying especially because i knew when i got home my old man was going to absolutely tear me a new one for being a damn idiot. goreway
"I'VE SWALLOWED MY CHEWIE!"
More of a 'dead IF I get home' story: My mum always used to say "Don't swallow chewing gum. It will wrap around your heart, and you will die". I can't remember how old I was. I'll say 7 or 8. One day, while out riding my bike, it happened. I accidentally swallowed my chewing gum. I abandoned the bike where I'd stopped it (maybe 100 yards or so from my house.
What use was it to me by then? I was terminal), and screamed "I'VE SWALLOWED MY CHEWIE!" ("chewie" being slang for chewing gum, where I lived). Fearing for what little precious life I might have left in me, I ran home, in floods of hysterical tears. I was hoping to I'd at least have enough time to explain to my mum that I was about to die, and why, rather than have a stranger find me in the street with no explanation, and cause my family to panic.
I didn't die. matildamint
Im pretty old, so this happened a while back, when i was in Jr. High. An occurrance in school.

I was SO clever!
Growing up, I had a friend who lived a few doors down from me. 15, I was pretty rebellious and was seeing a guy my family forbade me from seeing (hindsight, they were right for good reasons).
One day, I had the genius idea to tell my parents I was going to my neighborhood friend's house, when really I was walking .5 miles to visit said boy. I was SO clever!
The grand plan came to a halt an hour later when my friend came over to my house asking if I wanted to hangout. Probably should have told the friend I was using her as an alibi... My parents called my phone, and didn't say anything except "come home now", and I just KNEW they knew. I've never had the anxiety like I did walking home that day. thepaige
Was hanging out with some girls when I was 14, one of them was mad I wasn't drinking their beer so she poured it all down my shirt.
I was mortified that my mom would smell it on me, so I washed it in ocean water then hosed it down with "Off" bug spray.
And my Hail Mary worked! Got away with it, LOL. eljefino
Oh I was so damn wrong.
When I was in 7th grade I was dealing with a lot of depression over the year which made me not want to focus in class a lot so I fail 2 of my classes which meant I would have to go to summer school. I was handed a paper stating I had to attend summer school if I want to move on to 8th grade. Obviously me being the scare nervous child I just kept quite about it and hid the paper in my bag. I got home I hop on the Xbox hoping that my parents would just come home make dinner and I could tell them tomorrow when I calmed down.
Oh I was so damn wrong.
My mom practically kick down the door and yelled for my name, she came upstairs saw that I was on the Xbox and she was furious about that and she straight up yelled at me for a good hour. I swear my mom is gonna kill me in my sleep on day and I wouldn't be surprised. msunfair
4th grade troubles....
When I was in 4th grade, this guy used to kick me in my shin every single day. One day I snapped. I borrowed my friend's perfume, sprayed it in the kid's eyes, punched him a few times, then walked off the school bus like a G. I went to daycare directly after school, and the bus driver ended up parking there so that she could rinse the kid's eyes with water. The director of the daycare center called my mom and I just knew I'd get into so much trouble.
Once I told my parents the whole story, they weren't mad. I also didn't get in trouble at school because I had a good reputation. I had a good relationship with my principal and all of my teachers, so they knew that I had been pushed to that point. I have no regrets. TheLocaChica05
I set my school on fire.
I was with some friends who had a lighter after school. There was a large amount of white fluffy balls that i think come from some sort of tree during spring. They began talking about how you can burn a dandelion and it'll have a cool effect. Naturally my eyes went to the field which they noticed. We gathered up a small handful and lit it on the cement not the field.
We weren't completely stupid but the wind carried the burning embers to the field next to us and suddenly the sky went black from smoke. We ran like idiots and where caught a couple blocks away.
Got ticketed and a court date. I walked home that day. Not out of having a lack of funds for the bus but wanting to buy some time. Anon761
Moms not Happy....Giphy
In 5th grade we were on the computer during some free time before school ended (1998, so being on the computer was a big deal). My friend happened upon an unblocked porn site, and we dared him to set one of the pictures as the computer background. He resisted, resisted, and with the peer pressure of 4 boys aged 10-11 years old, he quickly did it as the bell rang. We thought it was hilarious.... our moms did not. Wu-TangJedi
I was 7 years old and I was sent to my room for some reason. We lived in a one-story house so it occurred to me that I could open the window, push the screen out, and go to my friend's house accords the street. It felt good to escape for a moment but I knew I was in for it when I went back home. And I was. buzzmebrotendo
It was a dark day.
I skipped school to hang out with my boyfriend. He convinced me that I sounded just like my mom on the phone so I should call into school and pose as my mom saying I was sick. So I did. The office lady took the info and I thought that's that.
10 minutes later I get a call at my boyfriend's house from my mom. Office lady knew something was off and called my mom at work. Mom knew where I'd be and called my step-dad to go get me. He was already down the block by the time she called me at his house. I still remember the icy chill of her voice when I got on the phone. It was a dark day. bnbdp
We knew we were damn dead.
Well it was my friend's birthday and we all were at his house. Our friend who was 17 (we were fish, he was a junior) picked all 5 of us up at midnight and we drove around. We ended up in my friends neighborhood around 2:30am and the speed limit was like 35 and our driver decides 85 is close enough to the limit. We see lights and all crapped ourselves. The cop interrogated our driver and questioned why we were out past curfew.
Anyway we got a warning and we all unpoop ourselves. The cop is walking to his car to leave when one of our friends recognized the cop as his neighbor and yelled "Officer ___ it's me your neighbor." We all just looked at him. He claims to this day he was the one to get us out of being put into juvie. Anyway we get home to the lights on in the kitchen and the bedrooms. We knew we were damn dead.

We were fish on a school trip. Dad had told me not to swim into the blue because I have one pec which is smaller than the other. I was determined to prove him wrong. Ended up being abducted and in a fish tank in a dentist's office in Sydney.
My dad eventually came to pick me up with this weird girl he met underway. He was glad to see me, I though he would've killed me. GeneralBamisoep
I skipped school and my mom texted me in all caps

"Hey I'm up stairs"
I received a detention for doing something bad in 3rd grade. As I was walking home from school I noticed my dad's car in the driveway when he normally wouldn't be home for another 2-3 hours. I just knew, I knew why he was home early. Walked in the front door and I instantly hear "Hey I'm up stairs". Never got a detention again after that. SeriesLive
The Koolaid Man.
Well i was already home and it was thanksgiving morning. Mom worked nights and was on her way home. Me and my brother fought often and this day we started fighting in our narrow hallway. He grabs me to i guess put me in a headlock or something and i lower my body and stick my butt out and he proceeds to push me against the wall and my entire butt goes through it like the koolaid man.
Well a few minutes later my mother pulls up and i decided to take it on the chin and tell her what happened before she saw it for herself Huskimbo9
(Progress reports are the bane of society)
It was eighth grade and I had gotten a D on my progress report (progress reports are the bane of society) and your parents had to sign them for the school. I sat in the grocery store parking lot while my dad screamed at me for getting a D. Swear to god I felt like I was tilting on an axis. He went into the store and it was dead quiet. I cried the whole way back. I knew he was going to tell all his friends about it too.
It was absolutely the worst, and I'm not a bad kid. To this day my parents getting progress reports or report cards terrifies me even if i get something like a 79 in fear of the screaming.
Edit: wow I know everyone never expects it but I REALLY didn't expect this to be seen by so many people and have them relate as well. It makes me sad that this is a universal thing but at least we can band together. Sharknado92
"Where the hell were you that day?"Giphy
My parents didn't let me date. As a girl-obsessed high school kid, one day I decided to ditch my $3,000 SAT course that my parents paid for and hang out with this girl I was crushing on. I lied to my parents that I was going to do some after-class group study with some people in my class afterwards so I could earn a few more hours to be with this girl. Everything went fine that day. My parents didn't doubt me a bit.
The trouble came a week later. I forgot to hide any "evidence" that I wasn't in class off my desk (used movie tickets, receipts from Panda Express, etc.), and while I was in school, my mom discovered those things in my room. When I came home, my mom's mood suddenly changed, and she scarily asked me, "Where the hell were you that day?" and handed me all the "evidences" and lashed out on me for three hours for wasting my precious time on girls while I should be focusing on schoolwork. My parents and I didn't talk to each other for two weeks after they discovered that I lied.
It was one of the sweatiest moments of my life. TuxedoCatSupremacist
We've all done it and we must be more careful. Pay attention to who you are texting. Sending the wrong text can end marriages, heck it can shatter lives on the daily, start world wars. Don't be so confident when you start to finger play. Look at the name first and always.

hey boss lady....
I sent my wife a text about how damn annoying my boss was being, only to find out I had sent it to my boss.
I sprinted to my boss who, thankfully, hadn't checked her phone yet. I just explained that I had accidentally sent her an "inappropriate text that was meant for my wife" and asked if I could delete it off her phone.
She and I have had a pretty amiable relationship so she felt comfortable handing me her phone, without checking, so that I could delete the text and hand it right back. spwf
I once sent "Yup, got the day off, boss thinks I'm sick" to my boss instead of my buddy. It was when I was working at Domino's when I was a teen, I just got a warning at work but it never amounted to anything. sixesand7
I was at dinner with my parents and saw that my sister's husband texted in our family chat. It was something like "In 30 mins I'm doing your sexy body hard". I almost choked, and kinda wanted to see the world burn.. but told my parents to give me their phones because someone made a mistake spoiling secret santa. They were very thankful and very awkward.

I once decided to be spontaneous and sent my wife s text saying: "I think it would be a good idea if I did your socks off tonight." Too bad the most recent text from my wife happened to be a group text including my mother, her mother, and her grandmother.

One of the help desk team that worked for me was sending sexy texts to his wife Andrea, when he sent a very graphic, descriptive text explaining exactly what he was going to do to her when he got home. Unfortunately, he sent it to Andrew, one of our biggest clients - Andrew's name was next to Andrea's in this guy's contacts on his phone. He came rushing in to my office the second he'd sent it and I had to ring Andrew to limit the damage. Andrew was fine about it, he said he thought my guy seemed 'really friendly'!

I immediately called him like two hours before he normally wakes up to left him know not to open that snap. He didn't know what to do so he just unfriended me. Later that night at work he gave me his phone so I could play the snap for my eyes only. th3_warth0g

Being an educator is one of the world's most arduous professions. Kids are a hand full, and parents can drive you to the vodka. It's stressful enough trying to just impart wisdom, imagine having to call home to tattle on the kids for the most outrageous issues. Teachers insurance should definitely cover mental health care.
Redditor u/Tee_01 wanted to hear from educators about the times they had to call home by wondering.... Teachers of Reddit, what is the most embarrassing reason you called a child's parents for?
Can I Get a Witness?
Last year, I had a 7th grader who went to the bathroom every day for about 10-15 minutes. I talked to her other teachers, she also went for 10 minutes in their classes every day. She was also late every day. Often by 10-15 min.
She always claimed she had IBS/Chrons. It came to a head when one day she claimed "my stomach hurts and I'm about to crap myself. I just have to take a poop." In front of the whole class. So I called her parents, the school nurse, and the school psych for a meeting. The girl had no medical issues. She just liked to cut class and get attention.
Near the end of the year, that same 12 year old girl asked me, "Mr. IAmTheDamnDoctor, are you single? because my sister be tryin' to talk to that right now."
I had to call another conference and basically ban her and all her friends from ever being in my room without at least a dozen other students/adults as witnesses.
That was not a fun class. IAmTheDamnDoctor
One of the first graders was so constipated he was screaming and crying uncontrollably, pacing with his pants around his ankles in the bathroom. It started almost immediately after drop off, so we called the mother maybe 15 minutes after she left. She did not pick up or return any calls until 5 hours later, because she was "lol, shopping." generichumancontent
My dad used to get bullied a lot as a kid and he always told me that if i get bullied i have to fight back hard cause that isn't gonna stop any other way. Luckily i live in a country where fighting back is actually an option and you wont get punished or expelled for it like in the US. Reddit
My very first year, of course... and they called ME.
I had a sophomore who was basically trouble from the start. In my class he was making a presentation, and he decided to say "crap" several times (not after making mistakes--it was intentional). So, I docked him for the word usage, and he blew up--I told him it was the same as if he'd used it in a written essay. So.....
The next day, I get a phone call from his mother--and I knew something was wrong, because everyone in the office was looking at me, and grinning. I introduced myself, and she asked why her son's grade had been docked. After I explained why, she responded, in a pleasant, "concerned mom" voice: "Well, I don't think 'crap' is that bad a word... it wasn't like he said 'the F words' or..." and she went on and on offering choice examples and combinations, as the blood drained from my face.
When the phone call was over, EVERYONE in the office started laughing--seems she was the local "insane mom", and these phone calls were common with her. gremashlo

I had to tell my mom that family guy is not appropriate for my then 9 and 11 year old daughters to watch when they're at her house.

When the teachers would eventually put on gloves and do it for him he had to be restrained, and would scream and cry for the rest of the day. JudgeGusBus
Obligatory not a teacher, but I once had my preschool or kindergarten (all I know is I was young) call my parents because I got my head stuck in a hole while playing on the playground structures. I don't recall how they got me out, but I do know that I haven't changed.
Not even a week ago, I got stuck on a kiddie ride in a mall and ended up with huge bruises on my legs. My impulses are still difficult to control. angelofchaos9800

HE DID NOT DO A GOOD JOB.
I had to explain to a 6 year old's parents that I wouldn't be wiping his butt for him. They seemed surprised that a 6 year old would have to wipe his own.
Edit 1: Here's some more context: We had bathrooms attached to the classroom so you didn't have to go very far. When he did this the first time he calls out "I'm ready!!!". I had an E.A who went and investigated, then came back and very sheepishly explained the situation. I told him through the door to just do the best job he could, and to wash his hands a lot. HE DID NOT DO A GOOD JOB. So i ran and found an administrator who took it from there. We had the meeting with his parents that afternoon. The family were recent immigrants from india so i wanted to be sensitive to cultural differences but so far every person from the sub continent gives me the same WTF?! response when i tell them this story.

This happened to a colleague when I worked in elementary school. A kindergartener had asked at the beginning of gym class to go to the bathroom. He intentionally didn't wipe himself.
When he came back to the gym, he backed up so that his butt was right in line with another kid's face who was sitting crisscross applesauce on the floor, dropped his pants, and put his crappy butt on that poor kid's face.
My colleague had to escort them both to the office and call in a district interpreter to call the unfortunate child's parents and tell them that their son might have hepatitis. SailorVenus23
The kid was like 15.
Actually had a parent call me and apologize.
Threw a kid out of class for licking highlighters. Gave him a warning, took the highlighters away, somehow he got another one and did it again.
Told him to go to detention. He protested, but eventually went.
Got a call that night on my personal phone (I have no idea how mom got my number), the mom profusely apologizing and straight up admitting that her son was being an idiot. Then she put him on the phone and made him apologize too. It was really hard not to laugh, because you could tell this kid had been getting reamed out by his parents over the incident and was not interested in talking to me.
The kid was like 15.

High school Deaf SPED teacher here. My student had contracted a bad stomach virus in his freshman year. He started off the day perfectly fine, had no symptoms and it suddenly hits him. He suddenly asked if he could go to the bathroom and I could see on his face that something was wrong, so I let him go. He came back almost 30 minutes later in tears because he'd lost complete control of his bowels on the way to the bathroom... in front of an entire lunch crowd. Thankfully his dad was less than ten minutes away to help with a clean change of clothes, I happen to keep baby wipes in stock and gave him a full pack to clean himself in a teachers bathroom (where I brought him when he'd finally come back so he'd have privacy to clean himself with dad's help).
It was awful and I felt so bad for him. defguysezhuh

Usually it was for totally BS stuff (which my parents now admit - they were WAY more strict on me than on either of my siblings and would often "ground" me from books or educational TV for seriously minor offenses in an attempt to force me to go outside... not the best tactic, but at least they can admit it.) There was once, though, that my grounding was deliciously deserved.
Middle school is the literal worst. Everyone is trying to figure themselves out, everyone is weird, nobody has any real maturity - it's a godforsaken Thunderdome out there. She - we won't name names - was terrible to me. She tormented me daily. I was too young, too short, too fat, had weird hair, etc.
