    "One day there was this lad James. He was a good lad - always getting As and A*s. But he wouldn't stop swinging on his chair. One day, he swung too far, smashed open the back of his head on the wall and that was the end of him. So stop swinging on your chair."


    "I had a lad named Big Phil in my PE class. Good lad - captain of the school's basketball team. One day he forgot to take off his ring before a match. He went up to try and shoot, got his ring caught in the hoop and ripped his whole hand off. So take off all your jewellery now."

    I imagine that's the worst that can happen - certainly not smashing open your head :lol:

    Probably was the worst, I spent a week on the sofa as I wasn't supposed to lift my head up too much. Pretty annoying as a kid so I never did it again after that.

    When I was in reception, we used to sing songs in assembly like most children do at that age. One of the song we sung was called 'He's got the whole world in his hands' and as we were walking out we were trying to work out who came up with that song and the teacher said that they had come up with that song! He also started listing off other songs we had sung in assembly and claimed to have made them up too. Of course we believed him, it only dawned on me when I was older that he lied.

    I was told handwriting and presentation always mattered, however, that costs time during the actual exam. Especially in maths where it wasn't massively important.

    If the whole class passes, (meaning C's or above- which we all did) we will go somewhere like Chessington. They never even bothered to treat us to the cinema.

    I was told all the GCSE's I wanted to take were full and my stronger subjects were History and Geography (I got an E in both as I had zero interest in any of it).

    This was 14 years ago when we had like 4 options....

    I remember back from primary school when my teacher said "when the wind blows, your face will stay like that forever", in an attempt to get people to stop sulking when upset. Well, to us, it meant that whenever we felt the wind blowing we should quickly put up our biggest smiles, teeth included.

    Nowadays though, I think I would prefer a sulk for a face than an eternal, soul-piercing smile.

    The most dumbest one. Our teachers decided to tell us that suddenly, they will submit your TRIAL exam grades instead of your REAL exam grades in GCSE to your college. Probably to get people to really take things seriously, but everyone was freaking out about it.

    Tbh, how did they even pass their GCSE's. It was so obviously a scam.

    In year 10, my geography teacher used to pick on me at least once a lesson. This time, he asked me to answer a question about freeze-thaw weathering (basically to describe the process) and I started my sentence with "because" since it was verbal feedback. As soon as I said "because" he cut me off with "ah! you can't start a sentence with because. when you're in an exam...blah blah blah" I ended up having to repeat my answer 4 times EVEN THOUGH IT WAS GEOGRAPHICALLY CORRECT, all because I started with "because" smh
    This is so frustrating!!

    Yep I remember that one. No earrings because you might rip your ears off!
