I’m not sure if there was possibly something in the water, but I felt like my high school had MULTIPLE weird kids who were always acting out and creating chaos.
And I rather enjoyed their antics and they provided a nice break from the monotony of everyday school life!
But there are definitely still some things those kids did that I’ll never forget…
Here’s what folks on AskReddit had to say about this.
1. You just made the list.
“He had a book where he would write in people that wronged him.
I got put in for smelling like soap!”
2. Very odd…
“There was this really mentally f*cked up kid I could probably write a book about.
He went through a phase where he was obsessed with JFK, printed out pictures of him and taped them to everything, his binder, truck, locker, etc. idk what happened but later that year all those pictures changed to pictures of Hitler.
He referred to this as the time that “the devil overtook him with evil”. He did this same sh*t with William Shatner and a teacher at our school, but the bizarre satanic Hitler obsession takes the cake.”
3. Getting it from both sides.
“He stabbed me with a #2 pencil in my collarbone area.
I went to the hospital but they said I was fine. My step dad said I would do anything to get out of school.
F*ck both of those guys.”
4. He was hungry!
“Had a container of Red Kool Aid powder in his desk and he would open it and eat it by the handful when he would get bored — usually an hour after lunch.”
5. Who was he…?
“He said he was Sonic The Hedgehog, when someone asked his name he would say “I am Sonic” and run away as fast as he could.
He even wrote his name as Sonic on homework and tests.
Most people never knew his real name.”
6. The crowd watched in horror.
“During my 6th grade graduation, our class sang a song.
Weird kid is standing next to me on stage and suddenly projectile vomits and some of it landed on my shoes. Impressively, he still kept singing while I stood there wide-mouthed in horror and disbelief.
I’ll never forget all the gasps from the crowd.”
“At an all-school assembly during my freshman year, a motivational speaker posed an easy rhetorical question to the crowd, and the weird kid in my grade unnecessarily shouted out the answer, to every bored person’s sudden delight.
For some reason (trying to maintain his authority?), the speaker asked our weird kid, “What’s your name, son?” Without pause, weird kid STOOD UP from his chair and loudly proclaimed, “MY NAME IS BOOGER.”
This announcement was met with raucous applause and laughter from the entire student body.
It was gloriously random and weird. From then on the weird kid was known only as Booger in our small town. It fit him better than “Shawn,” and he owned that name until graduation.”
“In fourth grade a girl ate a whole mechanical pencil next to me. She also regularly ate whole sheets of paper and erasers.
The pencil really sticks out in my mind though.”
9. This is revolting.
“His desk was in front of mine in Japanese class.
He would pop his back acne and eat the puss when he was bored. It was absolutely horrendous and people were pretty mean to him.
But in hindsight his mom used to drop him off and handles of vodka and/or beer cans would fall out of the car when he got out.
He was probably just going through it………. but in a strange way”
10. Wonder what happened to him…
“He was a genius, all top scores.
One day he called a friend of mine and said: “Hey, what are you doing this afternoon? Do you want to come here so we design a time travel machine?”.
Who knows where he is now.”
11. A legend.
“Guy in Jr. High had an unsightly amount of ear wax and was obsessed with James Bond, who he claimed to be his uncle.
He would loudly proclaim that “James Bond will kick your *ss” to anyone who questioned his affiliation with James Bond, made fun of James Bond in any fashion or denounced James Bond’s skills. He would literally get into fistfights to protect the honor of James Bond.
There was also a girl in my elementary school who never wore shoes and was known for her impressive f*rting skills. I’ll never forget the day when our class was sitting on the library floor during a lecture by the librarian how to handle/read/fold a newspaper (the 90s were weird).
It could not have been more boring when all of the sudden out of nowhere the girl unleashed a massive f*rt that kept going and going, and kept getting louder and louder to the point that the entire class was in full blown hysterics while the f*rt continued to rage on.
The hero we needed that day. Legend.”
“Dressed like the Queen of England (hair, shoes, and everything) from Elementary to Middle, then dressed like a doll for a year, tried to hook up with everyone.
Got kicked off stage at a talent show for doing a burlesque routine, would work her s*xual prowess into every oral report, and her last year she came to school 2 times in just a mini skirt and bra. I
didn’t know her personally at all but, I’ve kind of suspected she might’ve been abused or something.”
13. Doing better now.
“He regularly threw chairs around the classroom and one time he even held a pair of scissors to a teacher’s throat.
That was in primary school.
He was seriously throubled but seems ok now.”
14. Pretty mild.
“Cut his own hair while in class, mentioned that he would conquer the world with a revolver.
Ended up setting fire to his house and was sent to a mental asylum.
Pretty mild stuff.”
“He wrote in my yearbook “When I was 6 years old, I went into a cornfield. I didn’t realize it was a maze. I was stuck for several days without food or water. When they found me, the doctors said I’d never be the same. Good luck in college!”
16. Perhaps a genius?
Made an album of electronica called “Hook anthems” and each one was a soundtrack for different mundane tasks of his life.
He sold only one copy to a maths teacher – and it’s also one of my life regrets that I didn’t buy one too.”
17. That’s pretty funny.
“The albino kid in school. He would take off running down the hallway with one hand straight out in front of him and yell, “white lightning!”
He was weird but everyone liked him.”
18. He was always gifted.
“Poured his juice on the table at lunch and suction cupped his mouth over it and inhaled it all like a hoover when you put it directly onto a hard floor.
He’s a lawyer now.”
19. Cat Girl.
“We had a cat girl.
She would wear all black and had cat ears, cat gloves, cat collar, and even a cat tail, and she would walk around the hallways meowing at people. If she didn’t like you for whatever reason, because she never actually spoke to
anyone, she would hiss at you and swat at you until you left, but sometimes she would chase you.
She had two friends if I recall correctly, and she would nuzzle into them and purr. She was the ONLY person who acted like this, and she was that way my entire highschool years, albeit a year younger than me. And I’m pretty sure she was in the special ed classes.
I graduated in 2018, and I often wonder where she is now and if she’s still meowing at strangers.”
20. That’s kind of sad.
“This girl decided she wanted to be pregnant.
She proceeded to ask probably half the people in our high school if they would impregnate her, and then when that didn’t work she brought a zip-lock bag and asked for guys to j*zz in it.
Everyone called her Sperm Bank after that, and I honestly can’t remember her real name.”
“After one of my female friends rejected his advances he proceeded to jump off of his roof, twice, and broke both of his arms.
Second thing, he made a wooden weed pipe in wood shop and then tried to smoke out of it in class.
Another weird kid, who I might mention probably had a cognitive disability, so I don’t want to be mean, hid under a bridge in town and drank multiple bottles of Pepto-Bismol, and then went to school acting like he was drunk. He attempted to get people to drink some with him, and then went back to the bridge and tried to light stuff on fire until the police arrived.
Another one, a true looney toon of a guy, shortly after high school was caught with a large amount of guns in his trunk, rifles pistols and all that, and went to prison/jail over a multitude of crimes. Don’t even think he was in a gang, just pure insanity drove him to do insane things.”
22. Just in case…
“Ended up in a mental institution because his parents bought him a new mattress and while removing the old one they found multiple mason jars full of blood, no exaggeration 2 gallons total.
There was a police investigation and turn out it was all his blood, his only answer as too why was “just in case”.”
23. The guy liked his cookies.
“There was this huge guy, tall and wide, in our classes. To support his impressive body, he ate a lot.
He’d bring an entire roll of cookies (like 20+) and stack them on one side of his desk. Them he would take on bite out of cookie number 1, and put it to the other side of his desk. Then he would take one bite out of the next cookie and place that one on top on cookie number 1.
He’d go through the wole stack, until all cookies were partially eaten and in a neat stack on the other side of his desk. Thenhe would do it again, take one bite of the top cookie and place that in the original side of the desk, bite the next cookie etcetera.
After maybe 15 minutes of biting and stacking, the whole lot was gone. Now we weren’t even supposed to eat in class, but he always got away with it somehow.”
“Humped my desk for a solid minute while maintaining eye-contact with me, and then said, “thanks” and just walked away.
I’m a guy, this was 15 years ago, on my first day at this new school, and I was just eating lunch at my desk, and this dude just walked up and went to town. No context, no introduction, nothing.
Didn’t even buy me dinner first. Just wham, bam, thank you desk.”
“Robbed a gas station dressed as a ninja, armed with a katana. Stole cash from the register, all the cigarettes he could carry, and a bunch of lottery tickets.
He then fled across state lines with a 17 year old girl (he was 19). Not a great result for him.”
“Was in the band during some down time, some guy kicks off his shoes and socks and bites the ends of his toenails off.
Most of the class “casually” migrated towards the other side of the room.”
27. Criminal mastermind.
“I’m from a small town. There was this weird kid who was a year older, but he was so weird that even the younger kids would pick on him.
I didn’t really know him, but I put him in the weird but harmless category. He graduates, and then decides to rob the local Taco Time with a shot gun. Well, it is a small town.
The kids working at the Taco Time all know him, and pretty much everybody in the Taco Time also knows him. He got two years.”
“So, there was a guy at our school when i was a freshman that everyone called “wolfman” who was weird in all the bad ways.
He claimed to have super powers: teleportation, DBZ like energy creation and what not. All the girls said he would he just stare at them if they had class with him. He hung around us freshmen and did his best to “flirt” with the girls. For an example of his “flirting” he once told a girl that while astral projecting, he saw her face on Jupiter. Needless to say, girls stayed away from him.
He graduated though, and his brother started at the school. Now, “wolfman” wasn’t a tall guy by any strech of the imagination, maybe 5 feet at most, but his brother was a good foot shorter than him. He looked liked he belonged in 3rd grade (he never got any taller). It didn’t help that he always wore a child’s goosebumps jacket, that made people start calling him goosebumps.
He was even more “convinced” of his powers than his brother, but at least he was less s*xually creepy, but that’s all he had going for him. One memorable day i was in math class, and he started shaking violently, people ignored him, so he started flapping his arms around.
Wondering if this was an actual seizure the girl next to him put her hand on him and asked if he’s ok, he growled back “take your hand off me, this power is too much to contain!” She started yelling at him for faking a seizure and he went back to normal death stare foward grumbling about his powers.”
Okay, now it’s your turn!
Do you remember the stuff that “the weird kid” did when you were in school?
