    What’s the most ridiculous rule at your school/old school?

    My old school banned Pringles. We weren’t allowed to have them on sight. At the time they were on offer at the local shop. If we were seen eating Pringles or had them in our bags etc, we got detention and the Pringles were confiscated.

    My primary school definitely had some very strange rules, to name a few:

    - We weren't allowed to date (and I mean even innocent things like hand holding were banned)
    - We weren't allowed to touch each other - at all. No handshakes, playing it/tag, etc..
    - Trades were disallowed (not even Pokemon cards or Beyblades)

    Did anyone else have these strange rules?

    It's not just in your primary school...like, it's not my school, but I have friends whose school forbid the distance between two people to be less than 20 mm. Like they have to keep an at least 20 mm distance everywhere...

    In my school now, there are some wierd (stupid) rules...

    --We aren't allowed to seat on the sofas on the corridor (Yeah, we are never allowed to do so, and no one ever sits on the sofas, not even the teachers. So why are these sofas there? Why did the school buy them?)

    --We aren't allowed to use the tables & chairs right outside the library. Like no one ever uses them, like the sofas. So why did the school buy them...?

    --During breaktime, we have to go outside of the school building, even when it's literally freezing outside the temperature is like -10 celcius and the winter wind is blowing. However, the school is very "kind" and provided us a place to rest in during break time when the weather's horrible outside. (For example, when there's a storm): The library. So. If we're not outdoor, we have to be in the library. In winter or during terrible weathers, we always get an over-crowded library.

    I think I can make a thousand horror stories out of these weird rules.

    in primary school they literally banned all forms of entertainment at break or lunch e.g Match attacks , lego modles , pokemon cards , those little pokewalkers literally everything they banned. All because one idiot thought it would be funny to steal other kids stuff

    My primary school wouldn't let us outside when it was raining, so we had to spend break/lunchtimes crowded into the hall. I was bored stiff.

    My school banned us from having our jumpers off in the hallways which makes 0 sense when it’s something like 25C outside and the material the jumper is made of caused some girls to nearly faint.

    My high school maths and geography department banned us from saying "Nandos" because 2 teachers were seen on a date in nandos and of course it spread like wildfire so if anyone was heard sayng nandos you would get detention.

    Nandos? Seriously?! Wow, that's the strangest one so far. Just when I was contemplating the useless furniture, boom.

    We had to ask permission to take ours off. But they were "kind" enough to have the odd day when it was too hot for you to just take your jumper off.

    That's kind of like my school... you have to ask to take your blazer off. It really ducks during hot days, but thankfully most teachers address their classes on those days, giving permission to all... (If only it could be that way all the time...)

    in years 10/11 a lot of the boys started playing these gambling games in the corridor at break and lunch

    eg: you get a 20p coin, at least one other guy gets a 20p coin,. You all stand equal distance to the wall and flick your coin towards the wall and whoever gets it closest WINS all the coins used.

    It was pretty addictive. Corridors legit turned into casino's

    some people who were skilled legit made a lot money doing this.

    eventually the teachers became aware and cramped down, and would frequently go searching in area's known for this sort of activity at break time.

    at the time, i thought it was silly that they banned it... but looking back i can see why they did it.

    Your tie had to have a certain (I think it was 5) amount of stripes.

    That's absolutely ridiculous! Who'd come up with such a strange rule? Why?
