Detained

By Sonakshi - 11/09/2020 13:03 - United Kingdom - Cambridge

Today, I forgot to bring a letter to my secondary school, so I went to detention. I told them it got lost, but it's only when my parents phoned and told them the same thing that they believed it. So I got detention for nothing. FML

So you "forgot to bring" something that was lost? If it was lost before it got to you, then you couldn't forget to bring what you never had. Otherwise, it sounds like you got it, forgot to bring it, and claimed that it was lost in an attempt to avoid any repercussions.

The amount of times kids used that excuse was probably so high it’s just an automatic detention...

You got the detention because you didn't turn in the letter. They don't care why.

3.5 periods? We spend the whole day in there. I actually liked it.

we usually do too, idky they only let me stay that short of a time. maybe cuz i was a good kid and never got in trouble and that was my only offense my whole high school career. but hey, my ex shouldn't have pissed me off then told on me after I punched him. doesn't matter, karma got me almost a year later...twice. ahhh, high school. don't miss that shit

well at least you have honest parents. Mine would be like "no I have no idea what happened to that letter" and leave me in detention

Ok, so you learned a life lesson; life isn't fair. They hear type of excuses all the time. If they believe it every time, the school will be overrun with chaos.

You went to Detention when you really weren’t supposed to? Remind them the next time you go to retention that you now have one on reserve. Maybe you won’t have to do detention then. Because you already served previously.
