Shout out to the teacher I had in high school who would give us detentions for "talking" and then dump a box of markers on the floor and tell us to pick them up, keeping us just long enough after school that we would miss the bus home. Or, lunch detentions? Those were pretty evil in hindsight to punish kids during the twenty minute break they have in a day jam-packed with stressful math tests, group presentations, and then having to change clothes to sweat and run a mile during the day and then go dissect a dead, bloated frog. School can be strange, but the way teachers punish students sometimes seriously misses the mark.
So, when a recent Reddit user asked, "What’s the dumbest thing you got in trouble for in school?" people were ready to share the unfair and silly reasons they got punished for as kids that still keep them up at night well into adulthood. We don't forgive you, second period sophomore year social studies teacher! You know who you are!
