Top Ten Stupidest Reasons to Get Suspended from School

So here's a list of some of the most ridiculous and absurd reasons to get suspended from school. My GOD it's been forever since I've made another list. Holy cow...

Feel free to add more items down below!

The Top Ten

1 Hugging a friend

I kissed 4 girls at my school and the teachers don't know about it mwahaha - AlphaQ

I know this may be a little off-topic, but at my school, it's actually forbidden to hug or show any signs of being in a relationship with anybody...I believe talking to each other is the only thing you can do to show that you're friends with someone...heck, people have to go somewhere private if they want to hug somewhere in school, just anywhere teachers or people who will tell on them can't see them...I feel bad for people who actually had to do this. - Livirus

Your school is strict and disrespectful while you are amazing. I feel bad for you. - anonygirl

I don't like hugging people. - PhoenixAura81

What the hell? I hug an average of 10 girls a day and I didn't get in trouble - AlphaQ

2 Having a certain hairstyle

Exactly. As long as it's not offensive or TOO crazy, then any hairstyle is ok by me. Also, there is this singer called ever Simon with REALLY crazy hair. Look her up to see what I mean. - PhoenixAura81

I can understand this. In England (and Australia) school pupils wear a uniform which represents the school. Going to school with a ridiculous and way-out hair style of many colours sets a bad example on the school. It smacks of lack of discipline. Also deliberately incorrect uniform should be punishable by a couple of days' suspension. If you don't want to fall behind with your schoolwork, then abide by the rules; it's that simple. The trouble is nowadays there is virtually no discipline. The children rule the parents and teachers and it's getting worse. - Britgirl

I don't think we have that rule because a lot of people dye their hair and I'm gonna get the ends of my hair dyed blue.

What if it's just an innocent hairstyle, and not an inappropriate picture/message carved into the student's hair? - Powerfulgirl10

3 Reading a book

I have a friend who reads all the time. She never gets suspended. She just loves reading a lot. - PhoenixAura81

I can understand getting in trouble if you're doing this when a teacher is trying to give a lecture, but suspending someone for it is ridiculous. - Mcgillacuddy

But it's for education... - Powerfulgirl10

I don't get it. How can this be the stupidest reason ever? - DynastiSugarPop

4 Turning in your homework

I never do my homework lol - AlphaQ

Homework is very dangerous, maybe they saw the homework as a weapon

"Here's my homework sir."
"And heres you S U S P E N S I O N! "

Ah...bu--... what?

5 Drawing

I draw all the time I keep a paper in my book, and pretend to read. - XxembermasterxX

I draw pictures of random stuff but one time, my friend got in trouble because she was drawing a person and the recess supervisor was watching her. The recess supervisor thought that the shirt my friend had drew on her character was too low and the supervisor kept yelling at her while we were watching a movie for indoor recess.

Back in elementary, they would probably kick you out of the class for doing this too much because it's distracting, but suspending someone for this would be taking it too far. - Mcgillacuddy

If this was my school, I probably would expelled by now. I used to draw all the time until my Homeroom teacher got mad at me for it.

6 Packing lunch

My lunch is usually packed. I usually buy lunch either once or twice a week. - PhoenixAura81

Someone in my school packed weed lol. - AlphaQ

As long as you not packing anything edgy. You should be fine. That rule is stupid that it's as bad as not dancing or doing a handstand on tables - AlphaQ

I guess the teachers just wanted you to eat their food then...? - Powerfulgirl10

7 Going to school on time

I came to school at 11 am once. It was just as bad but it was funny lol - AlphaQ

If this was a reason I would never have to go to school - TwilightKitsune

Who added this? - njalabi63989

Um... Whoever added this is correct. Hint: read the title of the list and look at the item. Just saying. - Powerfulgirl10

I mean, why wouldn't you suspend someone for just doing what they're supposed to do? 😝 - DCfnaf

8 Having an opinion

I got suspended for posting political opinions on snapchat

Did Disney1994 add this or something?

9 For trying to help the teacher

I can definitely relate to that one. - anonygirl

Who added this? Was it a zombie? - njalabi63989

10 Chivalry


Have no idea why I added this here honestly. just saw it on another website. - Powerfulgirl10

You can here the fedora wearing neckbeard who typed this. - Jackamalio

The Contenders

11 Calling a teacher "cute"

I hear you there

I thought my 3rd grade teacher was cute but not in a sexual kind of way I just meant the cute a girl would call another girl you know lively and stuff.-Galaxy Meowth

Teachers are ugly LMAO - XxembermasterxX

I would never call a teacher cute. NO HUMAN ON THIS EARTH IS CUTE! - PhoenixAura81

12 Singing a hit song

I always sing Piece Of Your Heart by Meduza and GOODBOYS...
- TheDuttyGyal

Just sing Baby by Justin Bieber. - Userguy44

I accidentally hummed sangria wine by Camilla Cabelo and Pharrel Williams - BlazingParasol

My least favorite song before I heard Sweatshirt was Stupid Hoe and it's SO ATROCIOUS so if you play that the teachers and students will explode peanuts into pineapples because it's so terrible besides Stupid Hoe gets and -5000/10 - AlphaQ

13 Burping

This boy actually got arrested for burping. That is ridiculous. People burp sometimes. That's unacceptable to arrest a student for that

Arrested for burping? - Andreaslag

I'll admit it's legitimate to give the student a simple punishment, but not suspend them. - Powerfulgirl10

14 Accidentally dropping food on the floor

Now I've figured out what happens when you drop food on the floor... - Powerfulgirl10

I never got in trouble for this - njalabi63989

15 Going on sites not related to school

My classmate goes on pornhub. - XxembermasterxX

I wish I could do that. I love going on all different kinds of websites. I never go on school websites unless I have homework or classwork online. - PhoenixAura81

I'm always on The Top Tens at school because...why not?

TheTopTens is restricted at my school. :( - TeamRocket747

16 Farting
17 Using the bathroom

Me and my friends stayed in the bathroom for 30 minute at 1 point. - AlphaQ

18 Listening to Heavy Metal

I go to a catholic school and I love heavy metal to the bottom of my heart. I would just LOVE to play songs like Master of Puppets at lunch. If people call me a psychopath, I don't care. I'm not a psychopath, I just love this music. Sorry for my super boring comment. - PhoenixAura81

Let me guess, if you listen to Heavy Metal at a Christian School you will get suspended because it is "promoting satanism".

How bout Rap. It's the best genre but my teachers hate it cause of the cursing - AlphaQ

Cursing it just words don't see why it is taken so seriously if people get offended their fault not mine. - XxembermasterxX

Metal is awesome - jack2244

19 Bringing a ghost to school

Ghosts aren't real. - PhoenixAura81

I pretended to do that. Ghosts aren't even seen or heard by normal people. - DynastiSugarPop

20 Chewing gum

Uh, I chew gum all the TIME (only bubble gum and fruit-flavored gum, I hate mint). Not being allowed to chew gum in school is a deplorable rule. - PhoenixAura81

I can't name one teacher I have besides my music teacher who doesn't chew gum themselves. And he's awesome and chill.

In my school, you are allowed to chew gum in class.

In my school, the students like the chew on chewing gum during class, and the teachers got mad at It - MLPFan

21 Wearing the ''incorrect'' type of shoes

Wearing the wrong shoes to school is one one thing, but getting suspended over it is utterly insane... - Modde

I wore my mom’s high heels to school once and I twisted my ankle. - AlphaQ

At my elementary school if we wanted to wear shoes like flip flop they must have straps on the back of them

My friend wear wrong type of shoes and my teacher just gave him dress code. - njalabi63989

22 For having a birthday on 4/20 and being suspended for being on weed

Avicii died on April 20th of 2018. - PhoenixAura81

That doesn't make can't help your birthday being on 4/20

Same with the Columbine Shooting and Deepwater Horizon oil spill. - JoeBoi

That's not stupid, it's cheesy. If you're over 18, go smoke some weed. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

23 Disliking Pewdiepie

Good - XxembermasterxX

I don't even watch Pewdiepie. I've never watched a single video. - PhoenixAura81

Most people hate him. Wthexk - AlphaQ

24 Twerking Twerking

That picture though. - XxembermasterxX

This genuinely makes sense to be suspended for...

Oh god... That atrocious picture, it burns my eyes. HELP ME! - BlazingParasol

I hate twerking. It's disgusting. - PhoenixAura81

25 Being fat

I understand that shipping classmates is terrible, but for being fat? You can't get skinny overnight.

That is rude

It says that if you are fat you get suspended for 20 years

I’m skinny as hell so this isn’t a problem for me. - AlphaQ

26 Sitting down

That's stupied


27 Dying

This very stupid and there retarded

HOW can a DEAD body be suspended?

why would a dead body be in Suspension? - TeamRocket747

28 Playing pretend

In Wunderlich, I don't like how people think I'm weird for pretending to be a ghost at school. I moan, try to float, and think that I'm dead. - DynastiSugarPop

29 Talking
30 Killing a fly on school grounds

I would hate to be suspended for THIS. Ugh. - Kaylow34

If kids were to get suspended for doing this kind of stuff, then we would all be suspended. Think about it: You are obviously always walking around the school on the sidewalks and grass. But you step on bugs that you can’t see or that you didn’t notice, so should we get suspended for something that wasn’t intentional? So you see, it’s stupid

31 Wearing yoga pants to school
32 Having a horrible life

That sounds like something someone like Disney1994 would think. - anonygirl

33 Shipping your classmates together

I do this some in a sexual way, but let's keep that a secret. - XxembermasterxX

Okay, I'll be honest here.
For example, a friend of mine had a crush on this boy when we were in 7th grade. The three of us are classmates now. So when the teacher assigned them to sit near each other, I'm like "I SHIP IT" and would fangirl in the inside.
Another example, the boy and the girl are friends. And they once sat near each other. The two would talk to each other so closely. And one time, the boy lended the girl his jacket and I thought It was so cute.
And unfortunately, while I don't really like anime yaoi nowadays, I ship two of my male classmates because they're always hugging each other, helding each others' hands and one even said that If he didn't got the same public high school (In here, private elementary and middle schools are the bomb, but as for high schools, people rather choose public ones to have a higher chance to get into the most prestigious universities in the country. Although many rather have college ...more - MLPFan

9 kids in my 6th grade shipped me with a girl.
I found out that girl has a crush on me like I have a crush on her.

I ship some of my classmates… Some of the are slash ships (sorry). - PhoenixAura81

34 Pretending to kill someone
35 Listening to rap

Rap is over rated and crappy

I listen to rap all the time, - AlphaQ

I listen to I'm The One, Him & I, Lose Yourself, and River at school.

Rap is awful. - LordDovahkiin

36 Pretending to throw a grenade
37 For taking a phone to school

Taking your phone to school is for spoiled teens who get angry and throw tantrums when their parents tell them that they can't bring their phones to school. School is meant for learning so you can graduate, not going on social media, listening to music so you can concentrate or recording or taking pictures of people. About 100 million students brought their phones to school and the whole staff can ban the whole thing. When the teacher takes away the student's phone when they are not doing their work, they take them to ISS, get sent home so they will lose their phone privileges and even get sent to the principal's office.

This never happened to me. I got sent away from 1st period for being a phone to school. Back in 8th grade, my teacher took my phone for bringing it to school. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

38 Pretending to be a ghost

People think I'm weird for it. - DynastiSugarPop

39 Wearing white-soled shoes

Is wearing white-soled shoes a crime? - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

40 Kissing

I technically had my 1st kiss at school. At a Valentine’s Day ball my school hosted. I was 10 turning 11 at that time and I went outside the hall and we kissed on the stairs. - AlphaQ

This might've been a good moment for you, but isn't 10 turning 11 a little young to have your first kiss. - PhoenixAura81

41 Visiting your favorite teacher
42 Disarming a student

This happened in Florida when a student disarmed a would be shooter on a school bus - Zombieguy745

43 Helping your friends

This does happen in my school - Carsrule300

44 For writing stories about teenagers getting pregnant

Uh, that's fine if someone gets suspended for that. - PhoenixAura81

Whatever happened when you write fan fictions about Star Butterfly being pregnant even though she's 14 and you get in detention until 5 while the principal makes you clean the desks? What's next? Teenagers getting pregnant with ghosts?

45 Using your phone during class
46 Another student misbehaving

When I was in high school another special ed student put stuff in my backpack when I wasn't looking. I ended up getting suspended for 2 days.

47 Not wearing a bra

This Honestly bugs me the most. like WHY can't I BE COMFY WHEN I'm TAKING A TEST? I’m always feeling super restricted and I can't think if I’m not comfortable. A girl got suspended for this because it made a male teacher feel uncomfortable. It was hard to see she wasn’t wearing a bra, So WHY was he looking at her breasts in the FIRST place? This world is Honestly messed up

48 Not taking drugs

What on earth is this I would never go to a school that forces you to smoke weed everyday


49 Trying to explain yourself

Well I didn't get suspended but when the vice principal tried to take me to the office for something a teacher thought I did I kept telling her I did nothing wrong she started threatening me to call the POLICE on me which is very retarded.
