Top Ten Worst Reasons to Get Detention
The Top Ten
A boy, 7, was suspended for throwing an imaginary grenade while playing. - Mapleshade
Stupid, teachers are stupid these days...
This happened to someone who was playing like his pencil was a gun and got sent out.
Oh yes, THAT makes since and everything. Good call guys
Isn't hugging a way of showing you like someone, and have a positive relationship with them? What if they were choking and you had to hug the thing choking them out?
A girl had to mis lessons because of this. A bit extreme, don't you think? - Mapleshade
I never knew you could be suspended because of this. What damage comes from hugging?
What was extreme, the punishment or the hug? - PositronWildhawk
Because of this and other offences, a Cambridge college gave over 700 detentions in one day. - Mapleshade
Laughing is human nature so unless it's very repetitive and annoying we shouldn't give detention.
Why? That's so dumb! Maybe because it pissed off the teachers.
Why give someone detention for this? Stupid, really. My teacher is strict and uselly enjoys singling me out fro it anyway.
It's not stupid though. You shouldn't be getting pregnant as a minor student anyway, so I say this rule is perfectly understandable. - 3DG20
Now that is just stupid not your fault unless you planned it.
I mean, it kind of is if you carelessly went and had unprotected sex with some guy as a minor student, so the rule is completely understandable. - 3DG20
Its stupid that you would get detention for that
Not really. You shouldn't be getting pregnant as a minor student. - 3DG20
A girl once went outside of school premises to buy lunch. The fear of being told off sent her into cardiac arrest, and she ended up hospitalised. - Mapleshade
What about middle finger? Lol! - Ananya
A six year old boy was given a detention for making a gun gesture with his hands and saying 'pow'. He was accused of threatening a fellow student. - Mapleshade
Yeah one time I did a gun gesture and I got in very big trouble
One time I did a gun gesture
This is dumb and a dumb reason
Not really a stupid reason lol
Yeah actually, it kind of is, because teachers are the same people who talk about how bullying and discrimination is so bad and how you shouldn't do it, so it would be extremely hypocritical of them to get someone in trouble just because they love someone of the same gender. - 3DG20
Let people be how they are.
In elementary school, it's understandable to an extent, but high school teachers really need to get tf over themselves. They're just words, and everybody there is either a teenager or a grown adult. - 3DG20
$637 for swearing? That is so dumb! This is called high school everyone will swear!
Victoria Mullins, 18, had to pay a $637 fine for swearing in class. - Mapleshade
Then I and my friends should be poor
An eleven year old boy got detention for farting loudly on the school bus. - Mapleshade

No. Just no. I go to school to learn, not to change my physical appearances for people that I seriously couldn't care less about. - 3DG20
An eight-year-old boy got a detention after refusing to get a haircut. One of the school's uniform rules was for no boys' hair to be below the ear. - Mapleshade
I am a boy and I hate people cutting my hairs above the ears
Some schools have dress codes that are rather sexist.
You have to be a robot and accept everything teachers say otherwise DETENTION! Which is stupid because they also say to not be afraid of being yourself
Isn't school about learning? If being yourself helps you learn, then JUST DO IT - Skyleesue811
This should be first, it's hard enough being yourself. - TheHabsFan
I will not abide by those rules! I'm there to learn, not to pretend to be somebody I'm not all because people I could not care about don't approve of me, so you can take that rule and shove it up your ass! - 3DG20
Are you serious?! What are you supposed to do then? Pull a Logan Paul, record it while laughing and post it on the internet for views? Smh. - 3DG20
Oliver Adams, 16, prevented a suicide attempt after sneaking out of school to by some fries. The school said they were very proud of him, but still gave him a detention. - Mapleshade
THIS. IS. DUMB. The sneaking out would be understandable but the kid stopped someone from killing him or herself. - 906389
'He wanted to die, you should have let him'
I got a 4 hour Saturday detention for wearing a hoodie in P.E (gym class)
This is real, and it's stupid. I got detention for having my hoodie on, on a cold windy day
So a perfectly healthy fruit isn't allowed, but McDonald's, pizza, chips and pop are? *Facepalm* - 3DG20
Tom Bosley, 16, breached his school's health and safety rules after he ate an apple outside of a designated area. After refusing to attend his detention, he was threatened with expulsion. - Mapleshade
This happened to me
So by that logic, I can't listen to a completely appropriate metal song, but I could listen to a rap song promoting drugs? As long as they're not blaring the music out loud, it shouldn't be that big of a deal what they're listening to. - 3DG20
What?!?! How is that bad if they have headphones in? - Skyleesue811
Unfair right? Ask my fourth grade teacher. - AnonymousChick

Two people were dating a teacher found out and they both had a detention
One time this school year when I cough the teacher to me to sign my name on the paper I'm in 4th grade now
So if someone is choking and about to die then detention...
yep great job teachers you could of just caused a kid to die from this - lol2016
They should get in trouble if they're doing it on purpose to be funny, but having them arrested over it is way too extreme. - 3DG20

Wow that is pretty dumb
Wow, over an opinion?
This happened to people I know, they were outside the classroom and the teacher told the, they had an office detention, (stay in office after school) one of the highest levels of detention.

My friend accidentally went in the girls' restroom when he wasn't looking at the sign. He was in detention apparently for the reason of intentionally stalking when it was an accident.
Today I got a detention because a bully kept harassing me, so I told them to shut up. I got detention for 30 mins at lunch! and the worst part is that the bully didn't get detention.
