Would you have gotten in trouble in school for drawing a hand sticking up the middle finger on the board?

Asked by Nevada83 (1022points) January 14th, 2020

I did once in 1st grade, and no one even understood what it was I drew. I’m still shocked I didn’t get in trouble.

I was a serious student, so I wouldn’t have done such a silly thing!!!

@LadyMarissa this was in 2004/5, Lol. I definitely became a more serious student later on.

Only if caught.

I drew a lot of very elaborate and bizarre drawings across chalkboards while skipping classes in school, whence I was able to see reactions as the class filed in. A drawing of flipping the bird I would have considered kinda, um, meh… dull and stupid.

One of my favorite was a stupid ‘sun’ character, as speaking to a child audience, leading the children to sing bizarre cultlike songs and teachings. Dream sequences and alien abduction paraphenalia and scenes inspired by Dark Shadows and Freddy Kruger were common.

I’m not sure on 1st grade, but I would have gotten talked to somehow I am sure, if I didn’t know it’s meaning.

Yes. In grade one I said the F word and had to drink a mouthful of sunlight dish soap.

I used to draw them on the backs of the teachers as they were busy with the board.

I went to four different schools.

Age 6–10: Yes, slightly. Maybe something like being written up in “the book”.

Age 10–12: Yes. I had a British teacher, and he would not have been amused. I think he would have sent me to see the headteacher, who could be scary for troublemakers. That school was big on integrity and respect.

Age 12–16: No. At Free School, that would have been completely ignored.

Age 16–18: No, teachers were busy dealing with real problems.

I would have drawn it lefthanded, I’m a righthanded person, then they would played hell proving it was me. I once wrote: “KISS MY ASS!” On the blackboard and then pulled the map down to cover it. I wrote it lefthanded. They suspected it was me, but couldn’t prove it. They turned the matter over to my parents to solve. My parents couldn’t prove I did it. Even under the threat of a spanking I still denied it. I hated that teacher with a passion, and it was my last act of defiance before I went to Junior High. The teacher began locking his door during the lunch break.
