If there’s one thing you can say about high school, it’s that there’s never a shortage of drama.
It was fun, wasn’t it?!?!
Are you ready for a wild trip down memory lane?
Folks on AskReddit relived their crazy high school days. Let’s take a look.
1. Nice and wholesome.
“Worked at McDonald’s my senior year.
We used to have our girlfriends come over after closing (12:30 am) we would drink, watch p*rn and go f*ck in the ballpit/playground area.”
2. High as a kite.
“Every year we had a student vs. teacher basketball game. The main Chad McChaddington pulled me aside 15 minute before the game and asked me to smoke.
Him being the most popular and sought after guy and me being.. me. I said okay. I had a blunt with wax on it. We got super stoned and he went on to play. Not just “stoned”, we were properly destroyed. Like autism.exe running on administrative level high.
I sat in the bleachers and watched this dude high out of his mind face off all the teachers, security guards and principal and dunk on them. No one even suspected he was high.”
“Senior year, i got directed by a janitor to grab some towels from the Janitors Closet to clean up a spill in my classroom.
To get to the closet I had to pass by the teachers/staff break room. I saw an open teachers edition algebra book and no one around….
Easiest year for Math.”
4. Oh my God.
“One of my classmates shotgunned his parents dead and went to prison.
I liked the guy. He was a good kid. He was liked by all. He never did anything bad to kids in school.
He never made fun of or picked on other kids. He was slightly popular.”
5. Bad boy.
“Was in stage crew.
Got a bl*wjob up in the roof catwalk from girlfriend while hundreds of people were watching the annual musical. Never missed a spotlight cue, no one saw or knew.
Never told anyone I went to HS with.”
6. Time for payback.
“Guy I went to high school with got kicked out of our school and not too long after that overdosed over a weekend. A teacher made a comment somewhere along the lines of “he got what he deserved”.
I didn’t even know the guy, just knew of him. I went home that night and created a fake Yahoo email account and emailed every single teacher and staff member about what the teacher said and pretended to be a rich donor demanding an apology in front of the entire school at the end of the upcoming end-of-year assembly by the teacher who made the comment or I would never donate another dollar.
The next day I saw a couple teachers reading my email on their computer, so I know it was a conversation topic among the teachers. I got a couple responses, one from my English teach saying he could tell it was a student email from the emotion it was written with.
There was no apology in front of the school, but I know the teacher who made the comment was thoroughly embarrassed. I never told a single person about the email.”
“The principal likely used her connections with local and regional politicians to cover up a huge scandal involving cheating during the finals.
Some seniors managed to send one of their parents (a lawyer, no less) infos about the exam’s topic and the mom put the answers on the school’s bathroom windowsill.
The students went to the bathroom and got the answers, but the exam supervisor got suspicious about the unusual coming and going, checked the bathroom and found the papers.
They called the cops, the finals were suspended but eventually went on as scheduled with the kids involved getting top marks.
Later on there was a trial for fraud, but to nobody’s surprise, they were all acquitted for some reason.
The kicker? They were all upper-class kids and the principal was a staunch Communist back in the good old days… But I suppose class struggle took the backseat to the school’s and the principal’s good name…”
8. Sounds like a TV show…
“I lived a double life in high school.
My home life was spent manufacturing amphetamines while I played nice at school. None of my friends knew for years that I was a cook. I gave my friends weed to keep them away from the harder drugs.
Once I got older about 17-18 I realized the people who raised me were f*cked up and manipulated my loyalty.”
9. The pusher.
“I would pay the student office assistant every week for vacant lockers and their combinations to stash tons of weed in.
We had police as security at our school who would bring dogs sometimes. I would rotate lockers and keep it all split up. I would never have anything one me.
Once one of the lockers got busted and they never found out who’s weed it was.”
10. Caught in the act.
“I accidentally caught my teacher watching p*rn during lunch when I went back to get my phone and I sort of blackmailed him into giving me a good grade in the class because chemistry is hard.
Apparently it wasn’t the first time someone caught him either. All science teachers are weird”
11. Party time.
“Group of girls had lesbian orgy and recorded the act.
School authority never found out..,at least till we graduated.”
12. It was you!
“In the lights room in my high school’s theatre there was a couch that no one sat on because some tech crew got to rehearsal early and heard a couple going to “Pound Town” from outside the door.
The room was locked, none of the students had keys, and the couple was gone when the tech head opened the door; so, no one ever found out who it was.
I was the one receiving the pounding. There was a way to get to lights from back stage with an easy to pick lock. Snuck in, boinked, snuck out, never suspected.
Some of my cousins go to my old high school and apparently the couch is still there and is still referred to as the s*x couch… so that’s my secret legacy.”
13. Bad teachers.
“I went to a small school in Colorado.
In 8th grade our pottery teacher fell asleep with a lit joint or something and his house burned down. The cops found his stash. He had to give a really cringey “I have been living with my secret drug addiction” speech to all of us in class.
Thing was most the teachers in that town were doing a lot worse drugs then pot. We had math teacher come to class trippin balls on acid one day.”
“All those cuts, bruises, grass stains, cracked ribs, and broken teeth weren’t from playing football. Sorry mom.
There was fight club at school with like 30 members and we did not go easy on each other. I guess it can still be a secret if it’s a shared secret.”
15. Still there!
“There’s still a good pint of Jack Daniel’s hidden inside the ceiling from 10 years ago.
I checked last year day when my nephew was graduating.”
16. I know that dude!
“I was at a party in my senior year of high school.
I didn’t know the guy who lived there so I didn’t investigate when I smelled pot coming from the back of the house.
But I did notice that among the half dozen or so teenagers coming out that room later, a couple of adults were with them.
One of them was my chemistry teacher who seemed rather surprised to see several of his students in the room.
He quietly left the party.”
17. Nice work.
“I sh*t myself Freshman year and then fell in mud on purpose and made sure everyone saw so I could say it was all dirt.”
“I had a really good friend in the 12th grade who had killed himself and for the rest of the year I’m pretty sure I was the only one that had ever realized he left, so I never told anyone.”
19. Totally extreme.
“Some kids in the senior class that graduated after mine strangled two football players to death, mutilated their bodies and then had an orgy on top of them.
When they got done they played video games and smoked weed next to the corpses.
Everyone went to prison and one of the girls that was a participant/accessory just got out of jail on good behavior this year I believe…”
20. Mischief night.
“Our boarding school mascot was a tree (lol) that was on the campus in a prominent spot.
On Mischief Night, I had study hall with two other students; we were all sociable but not close friends with one another. We decided to completely TP the school tree, and stole loads of rolls from the library bathroom. We snuck out of our dorms after midnight, absolutely covered this massive tree in toilet paper, and snuck back in.
We didn’t know the next morning was when all the new incoming freshman visited, starting with a tour under the school tree. It also rained, so the tree was dropping globules of wet paper for days. The deans of the school flipped and assumed they knew who did it (notorious senior pranksters) but couldn’t prove it or punish anyone.
Twelve years later, I mentioned in passing to my BFF from high school that I was the TPer, along with these two other random people. He was shocked, and had never for a second thought it would be any of us.
Not the most wild crime, but it is satisfying to have gotten away with it!”
“Sold tons of pirated video game discs that I would torrent and burn from home.
Not from a rich family but i was a baller at school..also sold fake bus tickets”
22. Wild times…
“Our ancient history teacher, a man in his 60s, was busted for having a minuscule amount of marijuana.
He went nuts in class outing parents and prominent town leaders as cocaine dealers.”
“I had a music teacher, married with a kid, mid-thirties.
There was a rumor going around that the teacher was sleeping with a student, but nobody knew anything for certain. Their interactions were far beyond a norma student/teacher relationship.
Fast forward to when the student turned 18, and the teacher left his wife and married the student. They are still married and I believe they have a couple kids now.”
24. Stoned to the bone.
“Before school started us marching band kids would have “heck week” where we practice marching band stuff all week so we were ready for the first games of the season.
School picture day was also that week. That day I had gotten so stoned with the sousaphone player that I passed out waiting in line to have my picture taken.
Someone’s nurse mom rolled me out on a chair and gave me some water, and to this day everyone involved thinks I had heat exhaustion or something from marching all day.”
25. Hiding out.
“I managed to hide my pregnancy. I had her 2 weeks after graduation.
No one in school knew. Thank God for hoodies and being a very small woman, even when pregnant.
It helped that there were 5 other pregnant girls that year for people to focus on.”
26. Getting it on.
“Coaches were secretly getting it on with underage students.
A lot of us had our suspicions due to the coaches always riding around with girls on their carts during Lunches A & B, but ultimately we were just like “whatever” about it.
We weren’t surprised when one was fired our senior year, and another two years later. I think there was a string of at least 3 or 4 coaches getting arrested for it.
My high school was pretty crazy.”
27. Studying abroad.
“We went on a school trip to Germany and the hostel we stayed at had windows that could be completely taken out in fire emergencies.
So me and my friends would take out the window at night and use the drain pipe to scale down the building (was only like 2 floors up) and go take in Germany’s night life.
Nothing like coming back at 4am and drunkenly climbing the pipe.”
“The lug nut bandit.
There were four instances of cars having their wheels fall off after leaving school. It became a big deal and the school even told us to check our lug nuts before leaving school. I never bothered because I knew the truth.
Car 1. Myself and two friends were working on another students car in mechanics class. We replaced the rotors and brake pads for him. As teenagers do, we get distracted and forget to do more than hand tighten one wheels lug-nuts.
After school that day the car made it about three blocks before the wheel fell off while driving.
Weird thing to happen, sounds crazy.
Car 2. Myself, and two friends (different friends from car one) take the regular tires off of buddy’s car and put spare tire donuts on. We then did donuts and brake torques all over town one weekend. Buddy changed his own tires and the following week one of his tires fell off while driving. A total accident.
But now the lug nut bandit theory starts to get thrown around.
Car 3. An acquaintance that doesn’t know its all fake decides he could use this theory to get rid of his car, and successfully loosens his lug nuts and writes the car off.
Lug nut bandit theory now confirmed in general population.
Car 4. Some other guy in school uses the same logic as car 3 and also successfully writes off his car and gets insurance.
Lug nut bandit theory is now law, school installs security cameras in parking lot.
I’ve told a few people about the truth, but it’s always fun to tell again!”
Okay, you know the drill…
