When I was in primary school, we were only allowed to write in blue or black ink. One time, my teacher yelled at me for writing in "purple ink". The ink I was using was actually dark blue, but she ignored me when I told her that. I basically got in trouble because my teacher was blue- purple colour blind.

Trigger Warning

My father put his hand on my thigh while I was sitting on the couch.

I moved away so he no longer could from where he was sitting on the ground.

He moved his hand FURTHER UP my thigh than where it had been.

I reflexively (very gently) slapped his hand off of my leg, out of fear.

My mom started yelling at me. Later, she said that I should have โ€œgently removed his hand with a smile.โ€ She also said it was my fault for staying in shape (from MARTIAL ARTS, which I do so this sort of thing doesnโ€™t happen.)

Now, my mom is still mad about what I did, and I do not speak to my dad.

after that she called my mom and my mom actually spanked me because she believed it as well.

I was driving, my mind in another world, when I got pulled over by a policeman. He was sightly irate, said he had been following me for a mile.
I said, "I didn't hear your siren".
Reply: only had my lights on.
"What did I do?" For no known reason I was scared to the point of

If this is true and you drove a mile without seeing flashing red and blue lights in either your rearview or either side mirror, you shouldn't be driving. Officer was justified to be irate. A driver that oblivious is a danger to others and I don't wish to share a road with you.

Y'all remember that they closed all the schools on March 13? Well, 2 days before March 13 I felt really sick so I went to get my temp checked. Well, my temp was like 97 which was weird. The nurse told me to keep coming back after every class. I told one of my teachers and she said "Well if ur sick ur temp should be going up!" She went and had a huge conversation and probably argument with the nurse. I later felt very nauseous and threw up in the toilet. Well, since no one saw it except about 10 girls I couldn't go home. I had the flu I gave half of my class the flu because they wouldn't let me go home. Because, I wasn't there on March 13 I couldn't get any of my stuff out of my locker until the summer... thanks Mrs. Kassens

Once, I and my sister had a little dispute outside (no idea what it was, probably something stupid), but anyway, I decided to go inside because she was, like, screaming at me.

-So, around this time, I had a habit of locking the door when I went inside the house because my parents would get annoyed when I didn't.-

As I was going inside, I L O C K E D the door, and my lazy ass stepdad, sitting on the couch, got up and was like- "I saw that whole argument going on outside there!" "You wanted to lock the door to get back at her!"
And I, VERY CALMLY, tried to explain to him that I sometimes do that. People make mistakes. But NO. He had to DRAG the whole thing on and make it even more of a problem by blaming me for something that wasn't really my fault.
He then proceeded to send me up to my room and SCREAM at me for 45 straight minutes.

Keep in mind that my stepdad was also pretty annoying and was clearly trying to mess around in places that he did not have authority in. He also gave me odd vibes.

very off topic but once, he took my sister to one of those "Daddy-daughter" dances (when my father had asked to go with her) because my mom thought that it would be a nice "bonding time"
She refused to dance with him and both of my parents got really pissed off at her. Made me pretty mad.

I was young but I still remember this really vividly.. I was maybe 4 or something, and I had got into trouble for saying something cheekily, I didnโ€™t even say anything cheeky, apparently it was the way I said it, I canโ€™t remember what exactly. We had a โ€˜time out stepโ€™ at my home and my dad sent me there, which was reasonable. However, I had a cat soft toy that I was very attached to, I literally carried it everywhere. My dad took the soft toy away and got mad at me when I started crying. I stayed there for about half a hour, crying, not because I was in trouble but because of the soft toy incident. He isnโ€™t as strict anymore, but my dad was quite strict, and would sometimes grab me by my wrist and drag me, for example if I was taking too long. I donโ€™t think he intended it to hurt but it was exceedingly painful.
My mum also gives me into trouble whenever I snap at my brother. He sometimes tries to โ€˜run me overโ€™ with his scooter, and my mum barely gives him into trouble, but I get told off-

I told him that I did NOT cut class, that we had a pop quiz even and to check with my teacher. He calls her, confirms I was there and gives me detention anyway. Why?

After a couple of hours of begging and arguing with him (my mum agreed with me but she is a coward and never supported me) he forbid me to take the dog to the vet. So I left the house with the dog to pay with my own money. My father followed me and grabbed me, trying to pull me back home but I got rid of my jacket and kept going with the dog. At the end he just followed me to the vet. It turns out that the dog ate something poisonous and was in a lot of pain. Not only I never got an apology from either of my parents but also my father started mentioning to everybody how "I scaped from home" and how bad a daughter I was. I cannot hate him more, he abused me verbally for years, he only touched me that time. I am still hurt that my mother never defended me a single time.

Having a bread fight inside the house:
My sister and I were young and the babysitter started it as a game.
She let us crumple up pieces of bread and hotdog buns to throw at each other.
Then we cleaned it up and she put the bread pieces up high into baskets my mom had hanging on the wall.
Later on, my dad accidentally knocked down one of those baskets and stale bread crumbs went everywhere.
My sister and I told him about the babysitter but he didn't believe our story and grounded us for lying. And made us clean it up again.

When I was little, I was OBSESSED with wearing dresses/skirts! I wanted to feel like a princess all the time (LOL I'm such a girly girl), so I had several simple dresses and some skirts that I would wear to school. One day, my mom told me I had to wear pants because it was too cold. I got mad and tried to change her mind, but she wouldn't budge. So I wore the pants and smuggled a skirt to school in my backpack, changed in the bathroom in the morning, and PLANNED to change back after school. She never would have known if my silly little, like, first-grade brain hadn't forgotten to change back. (The reason is so dumb, but I get that I was punished... I was being really dishonest and obviously my parents didn't want THAT to become a thing.)

This was back in 4th grade or so. This kid kept kicking my chair which was really annoying. And add on the fact that he was tapping his pencil on his desk and turning his squeaky spinney chair around.

I have a hard time concentrating if someone's making loud noises behind me so I told him to stop. He looked at me and started kicking my chair again.

So I got pissed and raised my voice a bit. This was probably my fault.

The teacher, who was talking to the "popular" girls (who were the teacher's pets,) in an obnoxiously loud voice, looked up at me and said "[my name], WE ARE IN INDEPENDENT WORK TIME, NO TALKING."

And then proceeded to promptly put me outside the classroom with a form to the principle and my parents.

I ripped it up. It was stupid.

A friend and I were at the school yard right by my house, and we were hitting baseballs around. The school yard was enclosed by a wooden snow fence (this was back in the '70's). We got the brilliant idea of hitting the snow fence with our bats and seeing who could make the chunks of wood fly the furthest. We must have been having too much fun and forgot what time it was 'cause my mom walked up to get us and saw us in action. No "time outs" back then!

For bringing water bottles in school. I was about 15 and got (my first and most horrible) bladder infection. I had to take giant antibiotics every 4 hours and had to drink as much water as I could while also going to the bathroom often. I came to school with my meds and 4 large bottles of water. I followed the rules and took my meds to the nurse. About 2nd period hit and I needed the water. I pulled a bottle out of my bookbag and started gulping. Everyone started staring at me. My teacher was furious. I had no idea what I was doing wrong. Apparently, the yr prior a girl brought in water bottles full of vodka, and from that point on water bottles weren't allowed in classes ever. I was told I should be using water fountains. I was told I can only use the bathroom out of class twice a day bladder infection or not. I was told out of class water fountain fountain trips were twice a day as well. So I ended up staying home from school and damned near had to go to court for truancy. *shrug*

I'd just switched schools and I knew nobody except for one girl trying to be 'popular' whom I'd made friends with, and she invited me to this sort of 'picnic' where there would be awesome snacks and we would make slime. Eager to get to know some people, I volunteered to bring the food coloring for the slime. We made the slime on the cafeteria tables, everything went great. Fast forwards to the short recess after lunch, we're heading to the track to eat some food when the teacher came up and told us the principal wanted to speak with us. We were obviously confused, since we'd cleaned up after ourselves (so we thought). It turned out we hadn't and the younger grades had waited for ten minutes for the custodian to clean up our mess. Thankfully, my parents to this day have no inkling of it, but to put a long story short, I got in trouble for trying to make friends with the 'it' crowd

I totally forgot about the spider!! So at bedtime, she and I are in my room and we hear dad yelling for her at top of stairs. First and Middle Name!! She went running. Two seconds later, I hear my name yelled. First and Middle! When I got up there, my unhappy dad was holding the rubber spider in his fingers. "Why did you put this in Grandma's bed?!!!!!" So I had to explain that I had meant to put it in my sister's bed...... Anyway, Grandma was not mad.....
