This is why I like how my school uses a drug dog at random to go through the school
It is an interesting difference. The US is very freaked out about drugs. But the main reason is that extra-curricular activities in high school are usually administered under one large supervising body, so if its sports, band or even a math club they have to all be treated the same if they travel and compete. It's something to do with administration and funding for clubs and...something.
In the UK you're lucky to be punished for having a cigarette in a school, let alone drugs. We had people that turned up high for most of year 11 (age 15-16) and absolutely nothing was done because they were coming to school instead of skiving. I think people got punished more for wearing black trainers instead of school shoes more than anything else. A drugs test seems crazy, and the school would probably lose government funding or something ridiculous if they even asked for it.
You didn't try to talk about it tho? No ones going to go up to the bitchy girl with the screechy voice and ask to smoke. Legitimately, my high school did have a problem. White bitches get Xanax x and aderol. Guys smoke and trip. If you can't tell how high some of these kids are you shouldn't say I'm wrong. Maybe not in your situation, but every high school student I know, around districts and states will agree with me. Pay attention.
Some of the younger generations have absolutely no manners.. I feel sorry for you Op.
Why are people picking this apart? I say it and I'm twenty two. It doesn't mean literally the younger generations. Most highschoolers are 14-18. Alot younger compared to a twenty year old that lives on their own or has their own family. So yeah her being 20 has nothing to do with it. We mean when we grew up in 'our generation' people weren't quite as disgusting. It was more innocent in the mid to late 90's. No one would even think of doing that (unless you just lived in a really weird area lol)
We're picking it apart because she's either insulting her younger family or she's insulting millennials and gen Z's. Generations are wierd. Familial generations can vary widely by society generations. My dad is a baby boomer and my mom is a Gen X'er. Even further my siblings and I are all millennials.
And it turns out that Jazzy, you, and I are all millennials. It's also possible that the kid in the story can also be a millennial. When generations end is a fuzzy area. Depending on who is asked it ends before 2000 or after it. Also because generations prove shit. When my dad was in fourth grade my dad's class gave his teacher a mental breakdown. My mom got pregnant when she was in high school and I did jack shit in high school. People are people in all generations. Only thing that changes is culture.
My issue is the use of the word "generations"... The use is incorrect. A generation is a group of people born over twenty years. Baby boomers are 1940-1960. Gen X are 1960-1980. Millenials are 1980-2000. Gen Z are 2000-2020. So, if you are currently 17yo (born in 1999) then you are a Millenial and have one generation after you (Gen Z.) It's usually the last 10 years of the Millenials and the current school age of Gen Z. That people complain about.
Wow you guys are just taking my comment way to seriously.. I know I'm mature I don't need you telling me I'm not, back when I was younger I respected my elders (still do) especially in school none of my teachers had trouble with me and of course there's the bunch that think it's funny jizzing in cups and ruining a person with authorities day (teacher.. Ect) welcome to the Internet were everyone has different views from you
