It seems like nobody escapes the four years of high school without encountering one major scandal that rocks the hallways, shakes up personnel, and sends gossip flying around the local community.


Most commonly, it's when one of the teachers develops a relationship with a student.

Also common are events that center around students engaged in tragic or harmful behavior. These tend to be the most emotionally disruptive.

And, in rarer cases, there are some truly bizarre and one-of-a-kind scenarios that rock a school.

Lost-Warning-2588 asked, "What's the worst scandal to happen at your school?"

It Never Goes Away 

"The principal slept with a student and his nudes & sexts were leaked" -- kakyoinsjuicyfata**

"People's willingness to voluntarily collect electronic receipts that incriminate them astounds me." -- DrKittyKevorkian

"ewwwwwwwwwwwww" -- GenXScorp

Was Just One of the Kids at a Desk Before That 

"A kid in my senior year short story class (who sat directly behind me) was charged with the stabbing, beheading and burning of one of his friends/drug dealer."

"I remember the day like it was yesterday, sitting in my short story class when my teacher came in, in tears because she just heard the news. Students didn't find out about it until later."

"I actually have a friend who testified in his trial because he purchased the murdering materials at the hardware store she worked at."

"Crazy, man."

-- Supersmaaashley

Lunch Not Lady-Like

"The lunch lady was having sex with students and buying them alcohol." -- ZacharyTheMad95

"This happened at my high school as well. Lunch lady looked a lot like Tim Tebow" -- Dinklebub

"Gave 'em the ole' sloppy joe eh?" -- DrBBQ

"DOWN HERE IN, LUNCH LAAAAADY LAND" -- nitehawkxplode

Still Going Strong 

"The 30ish theater teacher ran off with a recent grad. I was kind of pals with the student during a play the spring before the scandal, and she hosted the cast party where in retrospect, they seemed a little cozier than appropriate."

"As much as I'm dying for the inside scoop, I can't imagine friending her on social media and asking 'So what was up with you and Mr. ___________?'"

-- DrKittyKevorkian

Gruesome 

"The caretaker killed two local girls and hid them in the school, he tried using the clay kiln to burn them. He later dumped them a few miles away" -- jofive

"Holly and Jessica? Still remember the photo of them in their football shirts, poor girls" -- Struggle_and_Grunt

"Don't get in the kiln." -- AaronVsMusic

Teachers Gettin' Kinky 

"In high school there was a little scandal involving the teachers and a teachers club called the 'hot tub club.'"

"Faculty members that had hot tubs would host a weekly hot tub party with other hot tub owners."

"Turns out they were all getting wasted and having a swinging party every Wednesday. Somebody's spouse found out about it and there was a huge exodus of 'hot tub' teachers my senior year."

-- xxcarlsonxx

Domesticated Terrorism?

"Kid in my class sent an email to the White House, threatening to kill Socks, the Clinton's cat. Secret Service showed up a few days later after they tracked down the computer." -- Goombaw

"[Today I learned] how to avoid the draft" -- youre_a_bot

"My college roommate and his friends decided it would be funny to leave some wires hanging out of their lockers when Clinton visited their school. The Secret Service did not find it as funny." -- reshp2

Quite the Visual 

"The Harlem Shake was a craze. We had an RE teacher who desperately enjoyed being the popular teacher so he got in on the craze. Invited 40 pupils from my year to his classroom at lunch and filmed his own Harlem Shake video (which in itself would've been against safeguarding rules)."

"Thing is, he also taught sex ed, so everyone got into his cupboard before the start of the video for 'props.'"

"The video was essentially a group of 14 year olds throwing dildos and condoms around the room while he, of his own accord, grinded on a life-size cutout of the Pope."

"He was suspended under investigation for half a year but surprisingly kept his job. He was lot more professional when he returned."

-- WelshDionysus

An Expensive Rule 

"When in middle school, the school forced us to give our phones to the vice principal, and they would stay there 'locked' during the day."

"They got stolen. Around 120 smartphones."

-- MatricariaChamomilla

Amnesia 

"Sophomore year a girl in my grade passed on a solid yellow up a hill, hit a family in a car and killed both parents and one of the kids."

"A week later she's back at school in a brand new pickup truck, and never faced any sort of trial or anything."

"Her parents were extremely large farmers in the small rural town and had influence in the local court systems I'm sure."

"Oh did I mention she excitedly showed off her new truck when she came back? F*** you, Taylor."

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
