Top Ten Things People Should Stop Doing In School


The Top Ten

1 Bullying

This is the #1 reason for suicide

I have autism and I have gotten bullied a lot

Bullies are gay - DrayTopTens

It happens in the adult world as well. Even worse because oftentimes death threats happen. Least for me though I've had those since I was young.

2 Doing drugs and alcohol


In my high school kids smoked in the bathrooms and the teachers locked them all up because of it

Four kids in my school were kicked out in one day because of this. ONE DAY. And I even caught people doing acid outside the school gates.

Two of them were smoking cocaine, one of them were a bully and he walked into class baked. I didn't like him anyway. He should've known better. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

A guy in my school got caught dealing drugs - SamuiNeko

3 Sexual harassment

I hope I never see this in school - DrayTopTens

I once caught this guy looking at lesbian porn at school

I'm a girl and people who are obsessed with butts over personality deserve to die.

No touching people's butts,k? - Nateawesomeness

4 Getting into fights

Someone needs to tell people not to push others in a locker and then lock it!

Some kids die when they get into fights and have serious injuries and that's a serious problem and I'm not kidding about it.

What made 7th grade hell. - FrozenHatingPokefan

And that's why my year in fifth grade was terrible. - Powerfulgirl10

5 Sticking chewed gum under desks, chairs, benches.

It gets very disgusting,dare to check under our school's gym bench. - SamuiNeko

It's yuck! Whenever I look under almost any table in my school, there's a lot of gum. It's as if people are too lazy to bin it!._.

This happened at my second school. There was also swastikas scratched into my desk in one of my classes. - Lunala

Swastika drawings, bad words and certain body parts are drawn on every desk. There is always century old gum too.

6 Cutting lunch lines

I have to deal with this too often. Although it probably sounds like I'm a two year old to say this, I think it's unfair when you were waiting in line longer than they were. They can wait. If they want to talk to each other, they don't have to do it in line. They can do it at the LUNCH table. - Transformers234

A group of popular girls cut me in line every.single.DAY

I HATE when that happens. I hate when people budge in general. - PhoenixAura81

What such a big deal about cutting in line I mean food will be there and were all going to the same place

7 Borrowing items and never returning them

For real I let a girl borrow my pencil and when I asked for it at the end of class she said she never borrowed my pencil and walked of with it and it was in her hand

Whenever someone borrows my pen I never get it back! It's here one second and now it's over there covered in drool!

I never let people borrow my stuff anyway unless they are right next to me so I could keep an eye on them.

Somebody borrowed one of my pencils, and another kid BROKE IT! People these days... *sigh* - Powerfulgirl10

8 Bothering other students

All of my classes and every student does this, because I can't concentrate with the whole class talking non stop. - Gehenna

If that was against the rules at my middle school, then I would be the only student because all of my peers are horrible people. - NicholasYellow

I guess this is the reason why I'm somewhat hated in class. But others are a whole lot worse. - Powerfulgirl10

Sometimes you don’t know if you are bothering, but you should stop if someone says you are.

9 Sex

My best friend lost his virginity in the school bathroom. I lost mine in the science closet. I regret nothing. The girl's still my girlfriend so I'm not bothered but looking back, it was a bad thing and we should've gone back to the dorms.

Two lesbians at my school did each other once (by shoving a marker up the others butt.) Plus, perverts keep having conversations about porn. Believe it or not, my class had to watch gay frog porn once since the teacher accidentally played the video. And kids were LAUGHING at it. People are perverts. - Powerfulgirl10

At school? What has this world come to?

So many girls in my school lost their virginity. - SamuiNeko

Why the hell would you want to transfer to that school? Just saying' That sounds like a really BAD school. - cosmo

10 Getting and dumping your boy/girlfriend every week

I've never had a boyfriend, thank you. - PhoenixAura81

People do this in 6th grade.

There is a boy in my class who has this girl who he went at with on THE FIRST DAY OF TERM! They didn't know each other! - jmepa1234

There have been people in my school that have made ship names for each other. SHIP NAMES. Like, I also don't give a crap that so and so is dating so and so. - kaitlynrad11

The Contenders

11 Copying other's homework and test papers

I hate cheaters. That's why I never help anyone at school when they need help on homework. - PhoenixAura81

Someone copied my work in first grade. And some kid with anger issues (who I wanted to get revenge on for months after something stupid happened) copied one of my friends' math work and says he didn't. - Powerfulgirl10

That happens all the time. If someone is desperate I'll give them the answers to homework but not to tests.

Once in math, a kid stood on his chair to see other people's tests

12 Using stupid, useless slang words

I never usually say those kinds of words. - PhoenixAura81


I agree, and I'm a YOUNG TEENAGER! I want to slap somebody when they say stuff, such as, "Ratchet", "On fleek", "TRIGGERED" (I hate that word SO MUCH.), and "Lit". - HyenaLover

13 Drawing while the teacher is talking

I sometimes do that - PhoenixAura81

Actually there should be no problem with drawing during class, as long as you pay attention to the teacher as well. I draw in class to prevent myself from getting bored, and I am still able to listen to the teacher.

I did this a lot in 7th grade during math class. - Pegasister12

This isn't that bad compared with drugs and coitus

14 Working

Well if you went to a special needs school... Friday afternoon was free hour.
Go on the internet, do art and crafts, etc.


15 Starting drama

Other chicks at my school start drama all the time. - Pegasister12

I hate when this happens.

Cancer - Nateawesomeness

I’ts fine KNOWING about drama, but it’s definitely not good when you’re involved in it. - PhoenixAura81

16 Making racist comments

This is so annoying - GleamingShadow

Some black kids in school call others the n word and it needs to stop - DrayTopTens

This is such a huge thing at my school. Please take no offense in how I'm gonna say this! There are multiple people in my school that are white calling themselves and others 'Black' and I am so sick of it! They say so many racist stereotypical things like how Asians are smarter and what not. I hate racism in school and in society, I don't understand why everyone can't treat everyone as equal without all these names and stereotypes! - KaBoomOmfgXD

People say the N-word a lot at my school. Even African Americans say that about themselves.

17 Hurtful gossips

GOSSIP SUCKS! - ShopkinsLover

Gossip is awful

Friend who gossips all the time: hey,did you know that this guy was crying over not keeping up with someone
Me:and hey,did you know we're not friends anymore - Nateawesomeness

After dating this guy from my batch, I was suddenly the target of gossip. It finally went up to the point his ex-girlfriend finally called me, while she thought I was preoccupied, a slut who stole him away from her (no, their relationship was already on the rocks long before I even knew him) and that's when I lost my temper and showed all my cards.

It's been a year and up until now they're trying to suck up to me after that incident. Not sure if that even works anymore.

18 Blocking your way to your locker

That would be annoying. - PhoenixAura81

I wasn't very lucky this year with my locker. I ended up on a bottom locker, in the most crowded hallway in the upper level of the school. The kid above me is much shorter than me, he's trying to reach for his stuff, and people are on the floor getting their stuff together. I have to make sure I can actually get down to my locker, not hit someone with it, get my stuff, and escape the herd. Luckily, if I leave class right on time, I can leave right when the herd starts - kaitlynrad11

This loser has a locker right next to mine and slams the door on mine, on my hand, and my Chromebook. Once he got in my way and slammed his locker on me again, and I yelled, " Excuse me?! Back off! " Then he shoved me and rushed to his next class unpurposley.

I have my locker in between two people:My friend and an annoying girl.
Every day, the annoying girl and her friends stand in front of my locker and they just gossip and I can't get into my locker. They also don't move.

19 Imitating gangsters

"yo dawwg I'm a gangsta" I've seriously heard someone say that once

20 Cursing

I agree - DrayTopTens

21 Peeing On The Toilet


what - ShopkinsLover

22 Dating in Elementary School

My 7yr old brother has a girlfriend, I am not joking they kissed

There is a boy and a girl dating in my school and People make inappropriate jokes about them all the time. I once heard a bit tell the boy in the relationship "I bet BLANK has live because she slept with you".

23 Trying to be funny

There's kids that think it's funny to do fortnite jokes - BlueBobYT

Me on TheTopTens 24/7.

Donald Trump jokes and stuff - Lunala

24 Getting angry for stupid reasons

Especially the teachers!

Hate it. My class is so immature. One time my class did a "Beezer Weezer" game (which is like a trivia game but a review on movies we watch in music class) and the whole class got into am fed about some answer, which was correct, because they thought the prince set up tar trap on the steps of the palace on Into the Woods. I tried to settle the argument by giving the team the points, but they all screamed at me. I hate my class sometimes. - Powerfulgirl10

25 Trying too hard to get all the girls
26 Joking about Rape/Suicide

I absolutely hate this.
people do it all the time and it isn't funny - GleamingShadow

Basically every boy in my class in the 6th grade would joke about this kind of thing. I would try not to flip out, but this kind of subject makes me forget that I'm not an activist on the matter. Usually, I would say that it wasn't funny or a joke, but nobody listens to the smart people. Rape is a serious issue, and so is the matter of suicide. Joking about this is not ok.

If you hear anyone joking about rape, suicide, or both, please remember my post and tell them this:

"If you were to (commit suicide/be raped), would you want people joking about it? Some people have (died - rape/lost family - suicide) to the subject of your stupid and highly offensive jokes. Think about someone else's life next time."

27 Bullying Special Needs Students

As an autistic student I strongly agree.

28 Drawing inappropriate pictures in books

Last year my brother said one of his friends drew a penis in their textbook before returning it back to the school library. - Lunala

Exactly! Once I found A...private part of guys drawn in my text book.Just stop! - SamuiNeko

Some kid (who I'm sort of friends with) almost drew a whole penis on his paper in art class. - Powerfulgirl10

If its your book (not a library book) then go ahead but stop vandalizing gosh.

30 Littering

I always find trash at recess! It's annoying! - Powerfulgirl10

31 Slacking off
32 Raging over another pupil being lazy
33 Acting like jerks for no reason

35 Being nosy

Especially the special ed teachers

36 Drawing on desks

Once I sat at a desk with swastikas scratched into it. - Lunala

37 Vandalizing bathrooms

Once I saw an emoji poop drawing on the toilet door. - Lunala

38 Watch Nicki Minaj in freetime

We are allowed to hear music while we work and I am glad only one kid is a fan of Annoconda and she is nice enough not to play it around evreyone else

39 Saying Annoying Memes
40 Touching other kids when they don't want to be touched

I know this is coming from a haphephobic prude, but I think people should stop touching other students when they don't want to. The only touching I'm actually comfortable with is high-fives, handshakes, and fist bumps. A few months ago (as of 7/9/18), there was this kid I hated with a passion that would sometimes back right into me when I was had my back against the wall when we lined up for recess. I gently pushed him away, but some of the kids behind me said I was bullying him! SERIOUSLY?! A lot of people also touch my hair all the time because it's super curly and "poofy". Sorry for being so prudy, but that should be something people should stop doing in school. I added this by the way. - PhoenixAura81

41 Playing Fortnite Mobile In class

If I see someone watch a stupid ali-a fortnite video on their phone, it just reminds me not to become friends with that person (i won't bully of course because bullying is bad) - BlueBobYT

This is why people hate fortnite, cringy white kids showing white girls their wins in fortnite during class and brag about how much money they spent on this free decent game

42 Excluding people

I can relate to this one. People tease and insult me. I have almost no friends and it's so hard to do well in school when half your energy is spent on trying to simply survive it. Please comment here if you can relate.

43 Hating Fortnite

A butthurt fortnite fanboy put this here

I don't play fortnite but the people who don't overreact. Although I don't care about fortnite the people who don't are jerks - DrayTopTens

44 Trying to be perfect
45 Masturbating
