School days have given us the best years; even the worst times at school turn out to be great stories to recall during reunions. It’s a lot more special when those moments are shared with our school barkada like the times we got called out by our teachers for misbehaving or for causing trouble. Corporal punishments were bleak then but there are some ridiculous disciplinary actions we can’t help but laugh at.
We asked people about the most hilarious corporal punishments they received and the results will make you LOL.
“Nu'ng high school kami, tinuturuan ko ‘yung classmate ko kung paano mag-gitara. Naingayan ‘yung teacher namin kasi may ina-annouce pala no’n. Sinira niya sa harapan namin iyong gitara. ‘Yung hitsura ni Ma’am parang nag-rak ‘n roll.
- Vera, 25
“Binuhusan ng isang timbang tubig ‘yung classroom namin kasi walang gustong maglinis. Literal na bumaha sa classroom.”
- Jeric, 25
“We marched around the campus noong grade school because mahaba ‘yung buhok namin. Never got the point of that.”
- Gab, 26
“Third year high school kami no’n noong pina-punas sa mukha namin ‘yung basahan kasi hindi nilabahan ng cleaners. Naubos na kasi ‘yung basahan tapos tinambak na lang lahat sa timba. Buong klase ‘yun tapos kanya-kanyang punas. Dampi lang ginawa namin pero kadiri pa rin.
- Carmela, 23
“Grade 2 ako no’n, kakulitan ko ‘yung tropa ko tapos pinagalitan kami. After no’n, dinala kami sa kabilang section at doon nag-stay for the rest of the day. From Section 1 to Section 21 real quick!”
- Arvin, 24
“Isa ako, kasama ‘yung top 1 namin, sa mga hindi nakagawa ng assignment noong Grade 3. Nilagyan kami ng placard na ‘I’m lazy,” mga 1/8 illustration board ang laki. Pinag-room-to-room kami sa lower sections para maging example.”
- Sean, 24
The punishments are quite embarrassing (other times scarring) but looking back, it turns out to be fascinating memories that would make us burst into laughter. Feel free to share with us the most ridiculous school punishment you’ve experienced in the comment section below!
