    Anything in KS3 Chemistry, GCSE Chemistry and probably A-level Chemistry (if I'd taken it any further to find out what is actually true).

    When they tell you to stop rocking on your chair because " they knew someone who cracked their head open doing it" no you didn't boss.
    When they told us that they added that said person lost a bucketful of blood before the ambulance got there. :eek:

    Telling us that a particular topic was not on the GCSE syllabus – despite showing the teacher the syllabus, he claimed we had the wrong version and that the reason why the specimen paper contained said topic was that they sometimes add random stuff to try it out. Of course he was the one operating off an old syllabus and he had to send all of our parents a letter of apology.

    One teacher tried to tell us that she was allowed to keep us after school without parents permission if we misbehaved and tried to enforce it too. Unsurprisingly, she got fired.
    If you go to school in England then she's correct.

    I dyed my hair a GORGEOUS shade of red in year 11, felt so good, walked around with my head held high all day then as I'm leaving the school gates my head of year comes up to me and sneers "That hair looks ridiculous on you", and it was a goddamn lie, because looking back - I looked FIERCE and a snooty woman just had to spoil my day with a nasty comment.

    I find that if you do get the promised food it's usually rubbish as well :rofl: At uni we got promised a buffet for the welcome day but it was just cold chicken and it was really disgusting :yuck:
