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

Cop: your under arrest! Me: is that so hmmh! Cop:that is enough of that you have the right to remain silent whatever you do will be used against you in a court of law you have the right to an attorney if for those who cannot afford one will have a attorney given to you you have the right to know and do you agree with the rights than shall it be!

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.

Ever notice how whenever a list mentions autism and someone's says that they have it? No offense but I didn't know they're were that many.

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

For listening to certain music

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

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

Ok one time I showed my friend a Slipknot song called "Wait and Bleed", which is one of the few songs by them that doesn't even swear. The teachers got mad and wanted me to put my phone on her desk. She told me I'm not allowed to listen to music that swears when it only said "hell" in it.

I can't let my parents find out I listen to metal at all, or I'd be in a lot of trouble and all my music would probably get taken away since they think that it's all going to be satanic and violent. My parents are very annoying.

For missing an episode of a TV show

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

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?

For breathing

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


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

Wut... I hope you’re joking... because, wouldn’t that teacher have been fired? That’s even worse than having to run up and down a staircase as punishment (mom’s teacher)

For using your device or playing games

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?

I barely have anything else to do when I'm bored.

There are actually lots of things to do, so this is an excuse. You could read, draw a picture, play outside, spend time with your family, study, tidy your room, make up a fun story using your imagination, play board games, or with siblings or friends, you could play hide-and-seek or tag (Outside.)

For "wasting" money 

I bought a lot of things that my mom won't like e.g. Grand Theft Auto V, Mortal Kombat X, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. She even thinks Mario Kart is inappropriate though it's only rated 3+ and these f( )kers who rated MKX are dumb cause MKX only has gore and nothing and a BIT of cursing. No nudity but they sit I'll rated it 18+. She says I'm wasting my money and isn't criticizing my evil older brother for wasting his money, I only spend cash on a few things and I'm thrifty. My brother on the other hand is the opposite. He spends his money on Disney DVDs and buys the same one TWICE. MY mom does NOTHING about it.

In 2013 one of the arcades at Seaside Heights NJ had a coin operated horse. As usual, I got on it. I had no idea that it was broken until I put some quarters in. It would not move at all. I thought that it didn't move because I was over the weight limit (it had a sign that said max. weight is 75 lbs), so I got off of it. It STILL wasn't moving. My parents were like "Good job you wasted my 50 cents on a fake horse that doesn't even work".

I spend about $1-$3 each summer on coin operated horse and carousel rides. Even though it's not a lot, my parents think I've spent nearly $30 riding fake horses over the years. They say "you waste da 50 cents on the horse ride that only goes back and forth for 1 minute! "

Come on, I only do this once or twice PER YEAR!

My parents said that I should spend my money less. What's the problem of buying something? They give me that money so I can buy whatever I want

For getting hurt

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.

I saw a GoAnimate video once where Caillou got hit by a car and got arrested for it.

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

For wearing certain clothes

This is for real. Schools and restaurants and other public places enforce dress codes all the time.

I hated when I wear a Harley Quinn top, my family finds it very inappropriate. What a stupid reason!

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

One time, I got in trouble for wearing sweatpants and a T-shirt and not a dress or skirt.

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 at 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

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

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! >:(

For Existing

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

In GoAnimate, Boris has grounded Caillou for existing.

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

This is what leads to suicide

The Newcomers

? Being bullied
? Getting a girlfriend/boyfriend
The Contenders
For eating junk food

For Asians it’s eating in general. Then they make you lose weight if you gain even 1 lb. My relatives are Asian and they have this food bipolar thing where during vacations and family parties they would feed a lot of food to us and afterwards our parents would call us fat and make us go on a diet.

Vegetarians need to eat meat to be a big boy/girl. Some vegetables are good but some meat is good to me.

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

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

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 not playing with younger 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!

Lol who plays with siblings?

I got in trouble for refusing to play with my younger cousins >:(

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.

God help you if you're not a conservative in a conservative family! Seriously, my mom tries to force that crap on me because I'm a moderate.

When my dad was alive, I got punished by him for not agreeing with his conservative opinions (I am a moderate as well). When I give him a liberal or a moderate opinion, he tells me that I am being brainwashed by liberals at school. Luckily my mom is liberal enough to defend me from my dad.

It really sucks to get in trouble for thinking that Sonic 2006 or such, are much better than The Lion King.

For not wanting to eat something

In November 2010, my mom made soup. It was good. Then suddenly the next day I got very sick for some reason. Not only did I got a bad fever and was very weak, I also threw up. The vomit was chunks of what I had in last night’s soup. I thought that the soup got me sick and I refused to eat it for quite a while. Mom served it again the next day and my relatives made it for a party that Christmas. Both times they forced me to eat it. I did everything I could to tell them that I absolutely WILL NOT eat it at all, from whining to pleading to throwing a tiny fit. My mom got mad at me. I explained to her the reason for my refusal, but my mom got even madder and claimed that it was probably a stomach virus since everyone ate it and was fine but I was the only one who got sick after eating it.

I still refused to eat it. I was so afraid that it will make me throw up again. It took me several months before I could accept it back into my diet.

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! )

In GoAnimate, the troublemaker will not want to have a certain food for dinner, but the parents will make them eat it. This infuriates the troublemaker to the point of flipping the table. Finally, the troublemaker gets sent to bed early and gets grounded.

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.

For not wanting to go anywhere

I've seen grounded videos where the troublemaker's family wants to see a certain movie and forces the troublemaker to go with them. The troublemaker does not want to go, so he/she tries to distract the family and by the time they are all at the theater, the movie is over. Finally, the troublemaker gets grounded.

I also saw a grounded video, where Boris 'needed' plastic surgery and the whole family went, even though Caillou did not want to go.

Another thing I've seen on those kinds of videos was that whenever the family member makes a stop, the troublemaker takes too long.

One time I wanted to go to my friend's birthday party at Sky Zone since I got invited, but two of my cousins had a birthday party at Chuck. E. Cheese's on the EXACT same day. I was forced to go even if I hated Chuck E. Cheese's and loved Sky Zone. That's one of the worst things that could happen in your kid life.

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.

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.

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.

Thumbs down this comment for no particular reason

Parents: (yelling at me because my cousins/sister did something bad and I got blamed for it)

Me: FML! >:(

Mom: So? Who cares if you think your life is horrible?

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

Nothing wrong with reading a book it would be dumb to get into trouble for it

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

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.

Ever since my mom babysat my cousins I have an unwanted obsession with baby paraphernalia that I just can't seem to get rid off from my mind, especially with baby bottles and diapers. I DO NOT have an ABDL fetish, I just can't get the thought of them out of my head. DO YOU THINK I WANT TO BE OBSESSED WITH THESE THINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE? OF COURSE NOT! I see them CONSTANTLY and it reminded me of my childhood and my mom's babysitting job.

I have GOT to get rid of this stupid obsession somehow...

I can’t stop thinking about vulgar humor (butts, buttholes, privates, baths, massages, nudity, toilet humor stuff like pee and poop, diapers, etc...). My relatives claimed that they were offensive, but they talk about them all the time, especially when they’re talking about young children, babies, and toddlers. They’re all now stuck in my head since I hear them talk about that stuff all the time.

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

For watching SpongeBob SquarePants

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.

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

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 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?

I never took my phone to school, but I seen someone get into trouble for bringing his ipad to school

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

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

For playing video games

I'm kinda pissed that Mortal Kombat X is rated M without a good reason. Even Black Ops 3 is similar and still rated M. The MPAA is too strict. I even got grounded once for playing. Grand Theft Auto V.

Especially if it's M-rated or whatnot when it has no effect on real behavior. It is fiction, not reality. What's wrong with people nowadays?

I once got in hot water because I was playing American Truck Simulator. YES AMERICAN TRUCK!

This sucks if it happens different if you were on it all the time with no breaks
