Armed and not dangerous

By littledonny - 12/05/2017 18:00

Today, I went to school wearing the same jacket I had gone hiking in the previous day. When I found out that I had left my 2" pocket knife in the pocket I immediately turned it in to the front office. They promptly had me arrested for bringing a weapon on campus. FML

That's on you. Never tell pants wetters that you have anything that they are afraid of.

why would you tell them that you had it?

To be an honest person so you wouldn't get in trouble if it fell out or someone saw it. But I guess they would've been further ahead to try to hide it.

Do they do jacket checks at your school or something? I probably would have put it in my bag wrapped up or something, because although you had no ill intent people are quick to jump to conclusions :/

jesus christ jacket checks? you know your countries bad off when school staff check kids for weapons. again more reasons that im happy to be Canadian

It sucks that happened to you, but you do need to watch where you keep things

I do not envy you having to grow up in these times, when the weak and afraid outnumber the strong and the general policy is to never use education to address unreasonable perceptions that the ignorant might carry lest they be upset or offended by the knowledge. Fortunately, what the school likes to call your "permanent record" is absolutely not permanent at all.

So you're one of these so-called "strong" you're referring to, huh?

Perhaps I am and perhaps I'm not, but this FML is not about me. I'll offer this: I understand that someone who is responsible enough to know the rules about knives in school and honest enough to make an attempt to comply with those rules (as ridiculous and unreasonable as they might be) when he mistakenly brings a 2" knife to campus is not the person of which the weak and afraid writers of those rules were thinking.

If you are just sporting a two-incher in your pocket, you shouldn't be whipping it out to show it. Nobody would notice it in your pocket, and if they did, nobody would care.

At my old school we had a policy that if you had been hiking/camping over the weekend and you brought your pocket knife with you to school after because you forgot it was there. If you turned it in, nothing would happen and your parents would just come get it at the end of the day. Definitely FYL, OP

Don't tell the bureaucracy more than they need to know OP.

This has happened to me. the difference is, I hide it in the bottom of my backpack for the rest of the short time I'm there.

Is your dad the same guy from my hometown who was so drunk that he pulled up behind a parked cop, got out and asked the cop to arrest him for drunk driving?
