Also, I love that the first teacher put a sad face on the slip. I don’t know why I find that endearing, but I do. I bet she’s really young, like just out of college, and she still has high hopes and dreams for shaping the future through our young people.
I suspect that in both cases some plucky student got hold of a blank detention slip and wrote out a joke detention to post on Facebook. I just can’t envision any teacher anywhere being so uptight as to give someone detention for either of these innocuous and quite amusing school japes.
“Innocuous and quite amusing school japes”? Are you kidding me? There has to be a website somewhere for the vocabularily gifted to post such amazingly perfected sentences, and IT ISN’T HERE. Go away weirdo.
Doubt these were faked. The HS I graduated from, even in the 90s, the women teachers were beyond uptight twats. During a study hall I had a pass to study at my locker. Spanish teacher didn’t like that and bitched. Showed her my pass and said that would be all for the day.
Only had detention (or my school’s version of it) twice – once when I was like six that I don’t remember properly and once in my first year of high school for “speaking too loudly” – three minutes before school ended. The funny thing was the teacher sent another guy two minutes later.
Oddly enough, when I was 10 I got up and screamed at my teacher that she was a bitch and other angry things and all I got was a light scolding. Probably because she was a bitch.
I’ve been out of high school for two years now, and I can say in my way too rich public high school, teachers really don’t have anything else to do. I’d imagine these kids go to a pretty good schools if these teachers are needing to find reasons to punish students.
