Everyone's school career -teachers and students- is filled to the brim with life's craziest moments. The things we see when we should be educating and learning are things we'll never unsee. It's seared into our mind's eye. People act nuts in those buildings. And when you don't personally witness it, you are most certainly going to hear about it, even when you beg people to just shut up! Gossip and loud talk is inevitable no matter your age or position.
Redditor u/thisis45 wanted everyone to fess up and tell some tales asking... What's the grossest thing you've seen someone do in class?
Gone With the Wind.
Freshman English. Prettiest girl in school sat right in front of me. She ripped one one day and turned around and stared me right in the eyes because she didn't expect me to hear it. Then she made a play fart noise as if that's what she did before. I wasn't buying it. She farted. sheptown
Freshman English too, middle of a test about Julius Caesar. Girl in front of me sneezes and farts super loud in the dead quiet. She snefarted. scarletandgray
Better than panty hose...
In HS chem, a girl sat diagonally in front of me. She wiped her nose on her hand and wiped that on her leggings. There was a huge booger smeared on the side of her leg after, and she continued to wear those leggings, unwashed, for days after. RosyFace122
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now!
Class clown was f**king around in class so the teacher punished him by making stand by himself at the back of the class. 5 minutes in, he asks if he can use the bathroom. The teacher, still being a bit ticked off from the earlier offense, told him "no." He kind of said something along the lines of "I really need to go, I can't hold it anymore, I swear." Teacher just laughed and reveled in her small victory then turned around to write something on the board. When she turned around though, so did he, and unleashed the entirety of his little bladder into this one annoying girl's water bottle. squirrelbeanie
Nobody likes you Mike!
Saw a kid roll a loose leaf paper into a cone and then proceed to use it for dip spit through the class. At the end it was all soaked through and nasty. He proceeded to push it through the slot in the radiator on the way out of class. F**k you Mike that crap was gross! Willietrailblaze
Nice name drop lol. thisis45
You're not at home pig!
Take off their sandals and put their nasty feet on top of the chair right next to me. I almost thought about pretending to sneeze on them so they'd learn their lesson. KyutiePie
You got problems kid!
Collect his belly button lent for several weeks to fill up a small Dixie cup. I asked him what he was doing and it was simply because he wanted to put it on the teachers desk and see what he would say about it. not_jude
Did he end up putting it on the teacher's desk? thisis45
He did! The teacher saw it, picked it up with his bare hands, and then threw it away. Very anticlimactic, but I looked over at the kid and he nodded his head and looked at me like "Yeah... it was all worth it..." So weird. not_jude
Nature is nature...
A kid in school gave himself an erection and was wearing basketball shorts. He proceeded to go up to the teachers desk and get a tissue. Everyone was laughing their butts off and the teacher really couldn't say anything. Having an erection is not against the rules. Probably one of the best days of high school 😂 ahardcm
Why aren't you homeschooled?
I watched one of my former 6th grade students wipe snot from his nose on the back of his hand and then proceeded to lick said snot off of his hand. judasaurusrex
8 is Enough...
Completely fill a 35mm Fuji film canister (yeah, cameras used film, film came in canisters, it's relevant that's Fuji, because Kodak came in black canisters, Fuji in translucent ones) with saliva, capped it and asked the unknowing guys to pass it over to a friend at the other end of the classroom (high school). When he got it and asked what it was (with signs; the class was ongoing), and all the ones who handled it looked at me with curiosity, I mimed spitting in a cup. 8 guys simultaneously retched. jsveiga
The Prize Awaits...
Last year (in a class full of 15/16 year olds), a kid in front of me was digging in his nose for gold... like, knuckle deep. He was really going at it. Kept examining his finger and everything. The thing is, he was sitting in the middle of the classroom up in the front where everyone could see. Man had no shame. roppu-kun

Had a classmate next to me chew open his cold sores and draw on his desk with the blood. High school Honors Psychology class.
Chew on his hand warts...the whole class.
*edit: this was in university
Omg I used to do that and I felt so gross but I felt grosser having them in the first place so wanted them gone 😭 but at least I was in around 6th grade not college yikes
I once witnessed a girl get up during class to blow her nose. After she blew her nose, she stared into the tissue and proceeded to eat the snot out of it. I will NEVER forget that.
Not Quite Gross
Catholic school, me and a girl I wanted to be more than friends with (never panned out) ate a couple tabs of acid in lunch Next period was religion, on the second story of a 1.5 story building (the ground floor was dug into the ground so the windows were head high inside, and flush with the dirt outside).
We start peaking, she makes this crazy noise I can still remember quite vividly but can't reproduce and lobs her book bag out the window, stands up and makes the noise again and follows her book bag out the window. Does a killer special-forces knee roll runs to her book bag and SPRINTS straight away from school, down a hill across a parking lot across the track and football fields down a hill out of sight back into sight over a fence and gone.
You Need A Better Collecting Habit
Back in junior year of HS, I sat 3 feet away from this girl in the front of the class. Therefore, the teacher could clearly see my disgusted face watching this girl pick at her acne scabs. She was compiling the scabs onto her desk. The teacher didn't stop her. This happened in an AP English class too.
In high school this guy sitting next to me was eating chicken wings covered in sweet and sour sauce in class. When he was done eating he took out a pair of nail clippers and started clipping his finger nails into the paper plate full of bones and sauce.
