13 People Share Their School’s Dumbest, Stupidest Rules


Every school had some uniquely dumb rules – at my elementary school, we were banned from playing with pogs during recess because teachers thought it constituted gambling. To be fair, if I had any money to bet on pogs, I definitely would have.

Still, it’s incredible to hear about the ridiculously stupid weird rules some schools had – and this r/AskReddit thread has some of the best:
