    man.. i just had a flashback about kindergarten when i used to get into trouble my teacher would make me go in the corner and hold my arms out for hours on end. I remember that shit used to have me hurting baaddd.. i guess it was better than getting paddles from the principal.. (back when principals used to paddle)

    then the years of 5th grade to 7th the principal would come into class make you put you hands up against the blackboard and whip the shit out of you in front of your fellow classmates.. man that was fucked, thankfully i never got any of that but i remember the crying from the kids that got it while we all sat back and laughed.. oh man..

    all through the years i was "writing lines", if anyone remembers those two words you'll begin to feel that pain in your hands just from repeating those infamous words again. writing lines, not on the chalkboard but on paper, 500-1000+ lines on top of homework.. I would like to thank the teachers that made me do that because im an expert fast hand writer now.. in high school everyone would be amazed at how fast i wrote 5-8 pages in a half hour sitting or less.

    what did your teachers used to do? im curious as to what punishments were for you in our generation versus punishments in the "whiskas era"

    Heh writing lines is about all I remember. There was never any physical punishments like whipping.

    One kid in my class who had to write lines quite often stashed on of those things that music teachers use (they hold 5 or six pieces of chalk so they can draw the music lines or whatever you call them) in his desk. He tried to use it to speed up the line writing process but the teacher figured it out cause any error would be repeated 5 times in the same spot, lol.

    we'd get our name on the board, with a check next to it if it was a repeat offense.


    Although, we had "in house" which was like in-school suspension from classes. You had to go sit in a cold room, in a little cubby. They would bring you your assignments and you spent the entire day, week or however long in utter silence. Bathroom breaks were on a schedule, and you had to go around the campus helping clean up during the afternoon for 30 minutes. No fun at all. I spent like 2 weeks in there b/c I refused to take off my awesome death metal shirts and cut my hair (we had a county rule against hair below the collar for men). After 2 weeks, I acquiesed, and claimed the "man was just trying to keep me down". I graduated in the top 10 of 375+ kids in high schoool, NOW WHO IS LAUGHING!!

    I remember loosing almost all of my recesses by having to sit in the "office" during third grade. I was a "bored" student and way ahead of the rest of the class, so I made it entertaining for myself. Whipping my ass didn't work....I just laughed right along with all my classmates. I was rather unruley in gradeschool. That paddle stung/burned....but not bad enough to cry over. I got in a huge assed fight in the 6th grade and had to punch the mats hanging on the gymn wall for a half hour once....bloody knuckles by the end of that one. Writing lines, ass whippings, staying after class, cleaning chalkboards and erasers, KP in the cafeteria, spending recesses in the principal's office and having my desk moved out into the hall were a few "choice" punishments I remember the most.

    lol I did that exact same trick. We had spankings, timeouts, sitting alone, all that crap. Spankings worked the best because nobody wanted to be spanked in front of class.

    I remember i only got in trouble a few times. My elementary school had a punishment were during recess you had to stand on a red line that was painted parallel to the the outer walls of the school. Lunch detention and suspension were punishments for more serious offenses though

    i wonder if the cleaning of the chalk erasers have any effect on our lungs now..
    i remember us having to do that as well, we'd go outside and slap the erasers together to clean them of chalk dust, no telling what effect it had on our lungs.
    then we'd get into trouble AGAIN for slapping them against the walls

    The worst we got was a detention, or being yelled by a teacher.

    I'm with Scrubbin, no way would a teacher ever hit a kid!

    I had to do lines and no recess once when I was in 4th grade, and once i had lunch detention for being being late in high school.

    My senior year one of my teachers tried to give me a referral for leaving class without permission, but seeing as it was the 2nd to the last week before graduation and i had a pretty perfect record, the assistant principal laughed and tore up the paper.

    When I was younger I was naturally left handed. I did everything with my left hand, from eating, to throwing, to writing etc. In my early days of Catholic school, they didn't like the fact that I wrote with my left hand and forced me to use my right hand. If I didn't, I got a nice smack. So unfortunately, I began writing with my write hand and never recovered since because my writing is pretty illegible.

    I left the Catholic church when I was 9 or so and went to public school. To this day I'm the only person in my family that isn't a hardcore practicing catholic and I'm the also the only one that didn't go to private school.

    i was a good kid. i only got in "trouble" once in kindergarten where I had to go sit on the "thinking mat" lol. just some mat in the corner away from everybody facing the wall. that was about it. i never got grounded by my parents or anything. although I think I did get my internet privileges reduced at one point. my parents pretty much didn't have any rules for me. i turned out well though. never did anything bad.

    I went to hippie schools where you didn't get in trouble :p

    Nah. In elementary school I gut suspended twice for fighting (he started it!), I had behavior reports home every week, and I had to talk to the counselor.

    I've never been in "detention," hell, I don't even know what the punishments at my schools were since I never got in trouble.

    See, the key isn't to be a good kid, the key is just to not get caught. ;)

    I got suspended in 5th grade for "rough housing" which was the equivalent of fucking around in line waiting for water after gym...My teacher wrote a letter and my father showed up wondering how in the hell that warranted suspension and it was dropped. Granted, I did my fair share of fcuked up things *after* 5th grade but nothing to warrant suspension. I think she just hated me for not paying attention and getting decent grades.

    Ass beatings were common place until the liberal 80's in oregon. Graffiti and vandalism and classroom violence showed up at about the same time....Hmmmmm. Any correlation?
    There really weren't any teachers that got carried away swinging that paddle at me, I got what I deserved. It didn't change my behavior, but it may have served a great deterent to the other students.

    We'd have to lift our arms out at our side and balance 2 to 4 dictionary's on the palms of our hands for 10 to 15 minutes. If you dropped it before the time was up you would have to begin again.

    That will build some strong arms!

    There were no physical punishments at my schools, I believe they stopped in the 80's. I was a trouble maker in early elementary school. Though the only punishment then that I remember was detention. Which I had to goto quite a lot then.

    I was pretty obnoxious when it came to girls too (guess I still am) and would annoy them on purpose. One girl I remember I would argue with her, and we would throw nasty comments back and forth, well one day I called her a female dog. Well we had recently learned that it was also called bitch, and so since she knew that she said that I called her a female dog. What she didn't factor in is that she got super pissed, and got in trouble for yelling and cussing, and nothing happened to me. :)

    Late elementary school, 6th grade I believe, I started to hang with some bad people. Needless to say, one of them was stealing cigarettes from my step mom, got me in trouble. Not only that, I can't remember if it was before or after, but we got caught smoking cigarettes near the school. I know what you might think, I didn't take my step moms cigarettes, I hate smoking.

    In high school I learned to be friends with the teachers, so I almost never got in trouble. :)

    I never stopped getting into trouble.
    There was always just too much fun in mischief. Schennanigans were just too easy to pull, and too fun to pass up.
    In grade school it was the balogna on the cafeteria cieling, spit wads on the clock and darts made of pencils and sewing pins. In high school it got really great. Home made gun powder, attempts at nitro glycerin, flooding the halls, plastering lockers with roadkill skunks, smoking in the can, and making firecrackers. Those were the daze my friends. most of which are probably felonious activities in today's world.

    yeah i went to hs with miller and middle school, we were never hit or sat in a corner some times it was more like the students ran the classes, now that i look back at it i don't even think i ever served any of the detentions i was served, except for an in school suspension when i was caught smoking out side the school. dude miller remember ms Hammel's class? we basically just talked the whole time, and when there was a test every one just cheated off of the three people who actually read the book... it was chaos!!!
