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


The Top Ten

1 Use social media

I go on TheTopTens during boring classes!

I go to the bathroom so I can get away with going on the site

I play games on my laptop in class.

I go on TheTopTens when the teacher doesn't realize. They are walking around a lot so I have a chance to get away, and if they catch me, they don't get angry, they just use Lanschool or GoGuardian.

I am one lucky duck. - 445956

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.

It's like the black market at my school. - Haumea

3 Argue with the teacher

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.

I usually do this.

Teachers can be very rude sometimes.

I never used to let things escalate this far, mainly because I didn’t want to get in trouble, but one teacher I had completely pushed the limit until I finally put my foot down. Sorry, but I’m not going to bow down to you just because you’re a teacher. You have to earn my resect just like you have to earn everyone else’s. - 3DG20

4 Spread secret letters
5 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.

6 Not finish projects

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

I never do my work in some classes

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

No it is never okay to bully

"Bullying" has a very vague definition nowadays.

8 Cuss at the teacher

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

A kid in my class once yelled "GO ---- YOURSELF" to my teacher over God knows what. Considering this teacher wasn't very well liked by just about anyone the kid received no formal punishment. - CloudInvasion

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

10 Play video games

That would be fun. I secretly use TheTopTens.

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

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

16 Fake your parents' signature

I know someone who does that.

17 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!

18 Talk to other students

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

19 Speak without raising your hand while screaming at the same time

Cusu shouldn't

Fights at school are bad. - Userguy44

23 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...

24 Steal

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

25 Smoke weed
26 Smoke crack
27 Use the teacher's computer

I did this one time. - Userguy44

28 Print random things off the computer

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

29 Revolt against school
30 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

31 Run


32 Skip class

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
