Maybe the teacher was just having a rough day, or maybe teachers don't always know best. Nevertheless, some of these punishments sound uncalled for.

    How Dare You Get Punched In The Face

    From a Redditor:

    For “fighting.” The school a**hole sucker punched me and I didn’t retaliate. It was even caught on tape. The zero tolerance policy is one of the stupidest things ever.

    It Was An Accident Ms. Helm

    From Redditor u/Isthisinfectious:

    I tripped on a loose tile and bumped into a teacher causing her to spill her coffee on herself. I apologized and showed her the tile.

    She went on for months about how I did it on purpose. Even got the principal and my folks involved. For the rest of the year she told me I couldn't come back to her class unless I apologized for doing it on purpose.

    Never went back to her class. Though I initially apologized for the incident, I never once apologized for doing it "on purpose". F*** you Ms. Helm.

    The Answer Is... Milk, Eggs, And Bread

    From Redditor u/ultimateredditrabbit:

    I got in trouble for "cheating" on one of my math exams. The teacher found a piece of paper in my pencil case. I got sent to the principal's office. When the principal asked me about what I wanted to say in my defense, I simply told him to take a look at the note. It turned out to be a shopping list. I was allowed to re-take the exam the following week.

    It's A Normal Thing To Do

    From Redditor u/alfalfarees:

    Clearing my throat before reading out loud to the class. She yelled at me and threatened detention because she thought I was faking it for attention but I don’t see how.

    Also more context I was a quiet kid so I wasn’t one to create drama to begin with, it just made me not want to talk more than I already didn’t want to

    Edit: bruh this blew up a lot. shout all to all my quiet and awkwardly shy homies out there who feel the pain of being reprimanded for the rare times we actually do talk.

    Breathing Is Distracting

    From Redditor u/mbhghghhhh:

    For using my asthma medication in class. I was told to keep my inhaler in the office, and to use it in there only. I was told it was 'distracting.'

    Know what else is distracting? The sounds of someone gasping for air and having to be removed from class.

    He's A Full Blown Doctor, Dude

    From Redditor u/Macabalony:

    Grad school. As in. Full grown adult. One of my patients was a chill guy. We had one of those relaxed relationships. He would fist bump me after treatment was completed. The dean of academic affairs did not like that. Got a 45 minute lecture on doctor patient relationship and how dare I violate that trust with a fist bump.
