Top Ten Things You Shouldn't Do at School but Do Anyway


The Top Ten

1 Use social media

Social media is a very bad thing.

Some students use it - ElSherlock

We all do that

We have school iPads, and I always secretly use this website. - sadical

2 Chew chewing gum

I do this every time, if your caught you get excluded and many people in my school has been caught, but I have never been caught- what's wrong with trying to make your breath nice, I don't wanna talk to people and have them think that my breath stinks. - idontknow

Nobody cares about that rule where I'm at. In my school, if other students see your gum, they'll beg you to have it. If you're a new kid who needs friends, that's an easy way to get 'em. - Cesium

I'm fine with chewing gum unless it's under the desk. I usually chew gum for a whole class period than spit it out into a trash can afterwards.

There was a time I chewed like five pieces a day at school, but never got in trouble for it. - Entranced98

3 Argue with the teacher

My second grade teacher was Cruella De Vil, she hated every student (except for the teachers pet) and bullied us so I went ballistic screaming "We don't deserve this awful treatment" And she said "You need help".

My art teacher was totally the daughter of Satan.

Teachers can be very rude sometimes.

I do this all the time because the teachers constantly blame me for things that I didn't do and when I try to prove my innocence they either wouldn't believe me or let me speak.

4 Go to the toilet for a whole lesson

I nearly did this in music class in 6th grade. I had stomach cramps and I nearly had diarrhea and I spent the majority of the class running to the bathroom trying to go.

It's not worth it. The smell of piss and crap will destroy your lungs, plus, it's filthy in there. - Haumea

A student in my class always uses the bathroom for too long. The teacher ends up having a short talk with him. - ShopkinsLover

I've tried. It definitely is NOT worth it.

5 Spread secret letters
6 Not finish projects

I never do my work in some classes

I go to study not to finish damn projects of no use! - Ananya

I do this a lot

This is the only thing on this list that I have actually done. Though this is usually a rare occasion. -Anonymousxcxc.

7 Bully

How to make people hate school.

No it is never okay to bully

"Bullying" has a very vague definition nowadays.

8 Cuss at the teacher

I don't talk to my teachers... - sadical

That is very perverted and they should be arrested.

How is it perverted or criminal? It's crude but shouldn't land you in jail. - CloudInvasion

I remember doing this back in 5th grade because my RELIGION teacher asked me how long my d--- was.

You had a right to do it then. You should've asked them if they had one too. - Skullkid755

Eeeww that teacher needs to go to a mental asylum

9 Get pissed off and leave the class

I only did that once, but I regret absolutely nothing. - 3DG20

That would be awesome

In our class, teachers usually do that - 0744rose

My aunt did this in the 70s or early 80s when they refused her to go to the bathroom, and this was middle school. She told them " the h*ll with you" and used the bathroom and walked all the way home, and told grandad why she did it and he was ok with it.

10 Put your feet on the table

Well I sleep on the table

Lol this is also typical athana - leafstar

The Contenders

11 Play video games

That would be fun. I secretly use TheTopTens.

Sometimes, I play on my Nintendo Switch in class. I play MarioCart8 against my friends who do it too! My teacher never noticies!

Pretty much everyone at my school with a DS snuck in some sessions of New Super Mario Bros. here and there. Such fun times... - Entranced98

Played my Game Boy during recess in Elementary School and have played on my 3DS sometimes during class when the teacher does her lectures.

12 Masturbate

Are you not meant to do that?

Umm definitely not me

There´s some nasty people at my school who masturbate during lunch time in the bathrooms and that's so disguting

Yah if you want to get in big truble

13 Cheat

Cheating is very bad because if you cheat and you go on tpo the next grade you will have nobody there to cheat off of and you will fail.

14 Eat

15 Revolt against school

Why the hell - qwertyu234567

16 Fake your parents' signature

I know someone who does that.

17 Smoke weed
18 Speak without raising your hand while screaming at the same time

Cusu shouldn't

19 Have hoods up

I'm a loner, so I do that. - Hanjax70

Unless you have to wear uniform.

20 Jumping Off A Cliff

There are schools near cliffs?

Wow dangerous if your school is next to a cliff lol.
In the 1950s teen girls would be thinking of Cliff Richard haha.

why not?

Really? Cool! I’ll do that next time I go to school! Except I don't have cliffs. How could this happen to me? I’ve made my mistakes! - sadical

21 Listen to Justin Bieber

I secretly listen to music and not pay attention!

I would agree, but I thought this was Things You Shouldn’t Do At School “But Do Anyway”. No one listens to Justin Bieber anymore. - 3DG20

Its not the school faculty which will be mad...

just the 99.9999999% of classmates and a part of yourself won't...

22 Draw all over the boards

In a regular class you can't do this but when I was in high school we have this period called grade room where you can do whatever you want. The teachers allowed the students to draw all over their whiteboards and chalkboards. It was lots of fun!

23 Talk to other students

It's creepy when it's quite in class, I like creepy!

24 Smoke crack

Sniff cocaine - qwertyu234567

25 Pick your nose

Why would I do dis

26 Fight

Fights at school are bad. - Userguy44

27 Skip class

I skipped 2 whole minutes of class because I was helping a teacher! I’m such a cool rebel bad girl! - sadical

Admit it. We’ve all skipped class at one point of our lives, right? If that’s a no, then you’ve never been a teenager. I’m just kidding, but you may not wanna do it in grade 11 because your grades that year pretty much determine whether you’re gonna get into a good college... But you can do it any other year. Just don’t get caught. - 3DG20

28 Eat paper


29 Spill sand all over the table

Lol will geg in trouble atsome point - leafstar

30 Steal

One time, I forgot to return a pencil. Now, the FBI is trying to track me down. Don't tell them I wrote this comment! - sadical

In 3rd grade, I stole a neon green marker from my classroom. I'm going to jail.

I stole like 20 felt pens and a spring balance. My execution is near. - Entranced98

31 Use the teacher's computer

I did this one time. - Userguy44

32 Print random things off the computer

I printed random NYC itineraries and pictures of my favorite things while at school

33 Be on other websites

Once a student got into trouble for being on a pirating site in Computer Science class.
That's not the only thing: I've seen people look up Google Maps, memes, the list goes on. - Rocko
