8. “I once got in trouble for blinking too much :( I was about 5 or 6, and was trying to see how many times I could blink in a minute. My teacher didn’t like it.”

9. “I was suspended for three days for ‘gang activity’. My mom worked for Walmart and she had a box of the uniform blue vests and blank name tags. I swiped the box and took it to school and gave them to my friends. The principal wasn’t amused and called me to his office, where he accused me of being the leader of ‘some Walmart gang’. Why did he consider it a gang? Because about five of my friends wearing the vests got into a fight with some of the football team. It ain’t easy bein’ a gangsta; even with such low prices like mine.”

10. “I got sent to the principal’s office for using the term ‘breast implants’.”

11. “I once sneezed in class and my teacher asked me to step outside of the classroom. She went on and on about how it was incredibly rude to sneeze while someone is speaking, as if I had a choice. Still confused about that one.”

23. “In the fourth grade, the class clapped after wishing someone a happy birthday. My evil teacher yelled at me for ‘clapping too loudly’ and made me stand at my desk for a half hour while everyone else sat normally. The worst part was that I was a super-quiet and shy kid back then, so standing and having everyone stare at me was just the worst.”

24. “In the third grade I was asked what I was doing on the weekend. I told my teacher I was ‘going to the Effing family reunion on the Effing farm to see my Effing cousins’. I was sent to the principal’s office and had to have my parents explain it. Effing is my grandmother’s maiden name and now I know why my parents always laughed and said their name so much when we spoke of them.”

  1. I will give you one from the other side, since I was a teacher for so many years. When teaching 4th grade, one boy who was such a good kid, came in crying from recess to tell me he had said the F-word.
    Once I got him calmed down, I told him that, yes, I did have to write him a ticket because he had broken a school rule. But I also told him he could go to the prize box, because I was so proud that he had told me the truth.
    The next morning his mom stopped by to give me a hug. I had all three of her boys over the years. They were a great family.


    1. Thanks for sharing such a lovely story Ella. I would have loved to have you teach my boys.

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  3. The last one is the best, but don't kids just love making up excuses. I think I've had them all in my time.
