Top Ten Stupidest Reasons to Get in Trouble

We all have those days when our parents just get mad at us for stupid reasons. Here's ten of the dumbest reasons to get in trouble.

Shout out to BlueFrostOfThunderClan for helping me make this list!

The Top Ten

For being autistic

Whoever made their kid get in trouble for being autistic, let me tell you this: Did your child ever CHOOSE to have autism?!

I'm not saying they're all like this, but most autistic people I've met are either violent, unintelligent, or whiny. And this is coming from an autistic person!

While I do not necessarily agree with your comment, I know where you're coming from. I am autistic, and I do not like being autistic because as a child, I got placed with unsuccessful autistic students and not successful, nice students. As a result, no one (except for Special Ed teachers and a few special needs students) knew me at all. That made me feel lonely. You are an awesome person.

I'm autistic and I really hate it when "normal" people bully those with autism for no reason.

I hate how people use Autism has an insult! I hope all people who used the word Autism as an insult burn in the depths of hell!

As much as I agree that people should stop using autism as an insult, sending those kind of people to hell sounds harsh. You should at least give people that insult autism a chance. They might grow up and eventually become nice.

For listening to certain music

This is annoying whenever people get mad at me of what I listen to or tell me to delete a song, like let me listen to what I want to listen to, at least it doesn't happen to me very often

You should really go to my school and talk to the people who blast Look at me by XXXTentacion through the school's microphone.

Why would people get in trouble for listening to certain music? A couple of curse words won't cause the end of the world or anything!

Yup. It's true. All these reasons sound like reasons that would be used for someone being grounded in a lame Go! Animate grounded video.

Yeah, like listening to music with sexual and inappropriate lyrics. - DynastiSugarPop

For missing an episode of a TV show

This would be a dumb way what if you were not home to watch the T.V. show

People get in trouble for this?

Ever heard of iPlayer?

I have missed every episode of my favorite T.V. shows. I even missed a new episode of The Loud House!

For breathing

This be really dumb way to get in trouble we have to breathe



I had a teacher who was so strict, you weren't allowed to breathe during her lessons.
She would stand out in the front going


For using your device or playing games

This be annoying I don't use it 24/7 I do take breaks, different if I was using it too way much and never took breaks

See everyone, this is why you should stay at the back off the classroom, wait...i got caught too...nevermind!

This is just unfair! Its our devices! I'm not on devices 24/7. What do you do when you're bored?!

That's so messed up. What else will you do when you're bored?

For "wasting" money 

Lol I spend so much cash on hypebeast clothes and expensive stuff.

Me: (spends $100+ on birthday/Christmas gifts for myself)

I don't waste my money... because they're's nothing I want to buy.

Control freaks and their whacked up ideas

For getting hurt

But what if it's so serious that you need to go to a hospital? That's so messed up.

On GoAnimate, I saw a video of Caillou jumping on Rosie's bed, getting injured, and getting in huge trouble. In that same video, Rosie jumped on Caillou's bed, got injured the same way Caillou did, and got proper treatment and care.

My Asian family thinks that no matter how minor an injury it, there is a chance that it could be fatal.

*Falls off stairs* *gets arrested*

For wearing certain clothes

If you're wearing see-through clothes, I think scolding would be needed.

I wanna wear jogging bottoms and a hoodie but of course, I have to look all fancy and formal

There's a fine line between wearing whatever you want and dressing up for a porno.

My dad wore a tool shirt and got suspended cause the ranch looked like a penis.

For farting or burping

Once in grade 5 at the beginning of the school day my old principal gave us an assembly to get mad as us for burping and farting the whole school was in trouble or grade 4-9, can't remember 100%, I thought it was really stupid that she got mad at us

YES! When my younger cousins burp it's OK but when I do it my parents reprimand me for "overeating", even though I say excuse me and they don't! >:(

This happens a lot on GoAnimate videos, but I rarely see this happen in real life.

For Existing

I calculated my misery, and it is true me existing is the worst disasters ever

My existence can not be fixed, and I feel hated.

This is what leads to suicide

In GoAnimate, Boris has grounded Caillou for existing.

The Contenders

For doing homework

Why should someone get in trouble for doing what he/she is supposed to do? That does not make any sense.

This happened to me...while I was in another class!

I had to do my homework! Different if I didn't do it

For eating junk food

Balance is the most important thing. All meat or all vegetables, both are unhealthy.

Go away, vegans. You can't tell me what not to eat!
Don't worry, weed is vegan.

Meat isn't junk food. Stupid hippies! In fact, meat can be as healthy as your vegan crud.

So what if I had a few slices of pizza?! What I eat is not your concern!

For not playing with younger siblings

Lol who plays with siblings?

I don't have any younger siblings, so I unfortunately would not be able to relate to this one.

Exactly! I can barely relax with my brother!

Ugh! When I don't want to play, I DON'T WANT TO PLAY! DAMN!

For hearing a dirty joke in a cartoon show

When I was younger my parents wouldn't let me watch Simpsons because of this.

Not my probably that Adventure Time was supposed to be a teens show.

Well, at least I didn't get in trouble for that.

For watching Regular Show

WHO EVEN HATES REGULAR SHOW? I respect opinions but I don't get why someone would hate this awesome show. Oh, cause it's supposed to be for adults but teens watch it instead?...Well same with a South Park. I'm always nagged for watching that show. It is t THAT bad.

For having an unpopular opinion

A lot of people I know cannot respect or try to change my opinion on things. When I told one of my friends that I hate anime the started saying "Why? " and "It's Awesome! ". and when I tell someone to stop ranting they start ranting about my opinion. I still wonder why I am still friends with these people. And I was ranted at by 15 people just because I said "I don't support Donald Trump". And my brother will not shut up with his ranting.

There are just some unpopular opinions that are more honest or even better than some popular opinions. (Like saying The Lion King should be hated and not deserve the praise it gets, while saying another film(s), like, well heck, even the worst non-Disney films, are better than The Lion King) Sorry but that's the truth.

@Disney1994 You can stop saying your life sucks. At least you're not in poverty.

Disney1994 will spank me with a belt for this if I was his child

For having a horrible life

It depends on how you define "a horrible life". If you're defining a horrible life because you or someone you love is homeless, being abused, or lives in extremely violent place, then I can understand why this is a bad reason to get in trouble. However, if they are just hating their lives over different opinions, then this is no particular reason because their lives are not actually horrible. They just claim it is horrible because people have different interests.

No one should have anything handed to them on a silver platter, but no one should have that said platter thrown at them before the person who threw it beats them down.

@Disney1994 Just say your opinion instead of saying that your life sucks over and over again.

I just know Disney1994 put this on here.

For not wanting to eat something

In November 2010, I had a soup that made a second appearance as vomit the next day. As a result I developed an aversion to it in fear that it will make me sick again. That December, I went to a party and that particular dish was being served. I absolutely refused to eat it due to my experience the previous month. My mom was mad at me. (It's gonna take me a while before that was accepted into my diet again! )

My dad forced me to eat some gross soup a few times. The soup itself looked like somebody ate too much and couldn't take it. And I'm talking about Chunky's soup.

I absolutely hate how some parents raise their children. I was forced to eat small servings of food that tasted like garbage at what they call a "fancy" place.

My grandma HATES it when I don't like something. She always says, "Oh, one day you'll like it and regret today when you didn't eat it."

For not wanting to go anywhere

I'm always this way. I prefer to stay alone in my room all the time. I understand having to go to school, but other than that, I don't want to be dragged around to places I don't care about. I also get forced to come outside of my room and "visit" with my parents, even though I hate that too.

This list is pretty relatable - and really well-made.

That used to happen to me all the time when I was younger. Since I am old enough to stay home by myself, this rarely happens anymore.

When I don't want to go to shop, I didn't and stay home.

For having unhealthy obsessions

The problem is that an unhealthy obsession can ruin your life. Just look at those rabid Jiminy Cricket fangirls on deviantArt; their unhealthy obsession with the character came to the point that they treat him like he's a real person, their boyfriend, their true love or *gasp* their mate, so much that they dream of getting it down with him, and once they realize the errors of their ways they threaten to commit suicide by writing suicidal journals or comments on their deviantArt pages. This is not good behavior, and can be very bad for your own health, well-being and reputation.

I'm surprised Disney1994 didn't comment on this item about hating his life over this.

My mom is upset about me having a thing for Apache helicopter porn.

At school, people never watched Strange Things but I do. My parents watched it and even my sister.

For reading a book

How could you get in trouble over this?! It's for entertainment and learning! If anybody gets punished over reading a book, then I fell so sorry for them.

My parents only want me to read chapter books, and my 5th grad teacher won't let me read comic books

What? People get in trouble for reading books? What is wrong with this world?

That's so dumb

For watching SpongeBob SquarePants

Nothing wrong with spongebob it be dumb to get into trouble for it

A lot of parents say that spongebob is bad for kids and yet they think that caillou, dora the Explorer, and other baby shows that have a bad influence on kids (or that don't teach anything) are actually good for them. Even some scientists believe that! I totally disagree. I'm sure that "scientific study" that said spongebob is too speedy for kids and that useless educational shows like caillou have a good influence on them is false. People these days are becoming WAY too overprotective over some things.

That happened to me, and it felt brutal. A lot of parents say that SpongeBob is too inappropriate for children yet they think that the live action shows that Disney Channel plays these days are kid-friendly enough for their children to watch. Those kinds of parents are hypocrites in that sense.

I once saw a GoAnimate video where Little Bill got grounded for watching SpongeBob.

For defending yourself

That's happened to me a billion times, and I did not like it at all.

No right to defend yourself? What if you're in danger?

There is ro reason for trying to do the right thing and geting in trouble for it

When my cousins were younger they would be aggressive towards me and I would end up getting in trouble for it >:(

For hating Justin Bieber

This actually happened. I told my parents I dodn't like him or 1D and they said 'oh well you need to be nicer. You need to have an open mind. Your music sucks too.'

For taking a device to school

My dad yelled at me for taking my tablet to school back in 7th grade. Now my mom grounded me for taking my phone to school! WHAT? She grounded me because of THAT?

But what if you need to take a device to school?

I don't bring my laptop to school, I use tablets

Happened to me
