    No Sign Language During Silent Lunch

    From Redditor u/future-unperson

    No sign language during silent lunch punishment

    My lunch period was so loud we got put on silent lunch for over a month straight. I decided the only clear solution was to teach my entire table sign language so we could still talk without getting in trouble. Apparently it was "unfair" to the kids who didn't know how to sign, so we had to stop.

    Male Students Cannot Wear Hair Accessories

    From Redditor u/sprittytinkles69

    Male students are not allowed to wear hair accessories. We had the rule about hair not touching collars, couldn't be past eyebrows, or over the ears. I grew my hair out and just put it up in hand bands. After receiving multiple detentions and fighting them and winning, the next year, they made the rule

    State Sheets Only

    From Redditor u/Cueball-2329

    I friend of mine in a military school found out the regs never stated what color the bed sheets for a bed made for inspection had to be in. So this mad man went and bought power ranger sheets and made the perfect regulation bed. I have never seen so many Sgts loose their sh*t but be unable to do anything since the regs were perfectly followed. Needless to say the next year they were updated to state sheets must be plain white.

    Must Leave After Your Shift

    From Redditor u/ SANTAAAA__I_know_him

    At a ballpark I worked concessions at, they had an all-you-can-eat promo day where tickets were more expensive than usual, but concessions around the stadium were free (excluding alcohol). So I worked that day and of course it was chaos, but when the lines started dying down later in the game they started sending some of the hourly employees home, myself included. But of course, I didn't go home. After I clocked out, I stayed in the stadium and got some cheeseburgers and Philly steak and soda and found an empty seat in the crowd for the last few innings.

    Next year, same promo, but new rule for staff: if you get sent home early, you have to actually leave the stadium.

    Uniform Hemmed Too High

    From Redditor u/bravosarah

    I took my uniform pants, and made them into shorts. Uniform protocol policy stated pants must be hemmed, but didn't say how high. Lol

    They do now, but I don't work there anymore anyway. They let me keep the shorts for the summer tho. That was pretty cool.
