I was watching iCarly with Little S tonight and it was about getting detention.
Believe it or not, I got detention once in Jr. High School. My really good friend Jenny just happened to be the principals daughter. We also just happened to not be allowed to chew gum in school. However we were allowed to chew gum on the bus. We lived on one side of the school district and the Jr High was on the other so we had about a 45 minute ride to school each morning with stops along the way. Jenny and I had a habit of stopping in to see her dad in the morning to say hi and just check in. Well you see where this is going right? We walked in one morning with gum in our mouths. Not one to play favorites (I actually think he was harder on us) he had us spit out our gum and gave us detention right there on the spot. I couldn't believe it. I was mortified that I had detention. I was a goody goody and didn't get in trouble.
A few years ago Teen got detention in High School. I honestly can't say that I blame him for getting it and if I were in the same situation I probably would have gotten it too. He was in science class in 7th or 8th grade and they were learning about rock formations. The class was mostly boys and the teacher was talking about basal cleavage. You know what happened next. All the kids started snickering. Teen got into one of those uncontrollable laughs. He was sent to the back of the room and told to turn his desk around. Then the teacher proceeded to say basal cleavage several more times. He just couldn't stop laughing and soon he was given detention. I couldn't even yell at him, I just laughed as well.
So have you ever gotten detention? If so why?
