Every school has them, whether we like it or not. Some schools, you can't wear hats. Other schools, you HAVE to wear dress pants. And still other schools, you can't even have purses.
Well, recently in America as most of you may or may not know, there have been a string of cellphone-called-in bomb threats, shootings in schools and colleges (though to be honest those are few and far as far as I can tell, I could be wrong though), and of course thefts varying from pennies to thousands of dollars (WTH) and of course to cell phones, toys, hand held game systems, laptop computers (again, WTH), I could go on.
At my school, our purses now have to be smaller than a textbook; if they are bigger than that, you are suspended for three days.
Personally, the only reason I even HAVE a purse is to carry pads, pencils, chapstick, and my agendabook around. It's barely big enough to accommadate any of this. I also carry my backpack around due to being incredibly clumsy: when I go up staircases carrying my stuff, I trip on the top stair EVERY TIME and throw my stuff everywhere. Then idiots kick it around for fun and it takes me almost all of the 10 minutes I have between classes to gather it back up.
On that, we're also forbidden to have our backpacks/sportsbags/etc. out of our lockers. I call shenanigans: I NEED MY FREAKIN BACKPACK. If I was able to, I'd explain why to the principals but chances are, they'd roll their eyes.
Funny thing is? There are still idiots running around in SUPER mini skirts and nobody cares. Personally, I don't want people carrying my stuff for me, even with my ankles acting up constantly; that's why I use the messenger bag I have. I don't trust people at my school because all of them have been known to take things if the person who needs help is a nerd.
What's next? I don't know about my school, but a kid in my math class says that the next thing they'll demand is that ALL POCKETS be sewn shut.
I don't know about you guys, again, but I can't fit ANYTHING in my jeans pockets; my butt's too big and to be honest front pockets are too tiny to hold anything bar a piece of gum and MAYBE an mp3player/ipod.
What are the stupid rules at your guys' schools?
