When you're a kid in school, the threat of detention looms over every class to keep kids in line. Sometimes teachers and students have different definitions of "being on their best behavior," and students are summoned to detention for reasons as absurd as bird-feeding and "inappropriate clapping."
Former students shared the funniest reasons why they were punished at school, and these stories would make for an interesting, offbeat reboot of The Breakfast Club.
I once wanted to get out of a football practice because I had a bunch of homework to do. So, I just asked my teacher for a detention. -unclepj60
In computer class circa 1998 I just learned how to copy and paste. I spent the class making a document that was 20,000 pages long that just said MOOSE over and over. At the end of the class I hit save and it crashed all of the computers in the school. I honestly had no idea what I was doing. -YborCtyAlmstKilledMe
