There are so many breath alternatives, if this occurred in the morning, they could've brushed their teeth. They could've used the gum before (or after) class, not in between. They could've gotten Tic-Tacs, breath freshening sprays, or, if worse comes to worst, some small hard candy.
But did you guys know that chewing any type of mint gum while studying and then chewing the same kind later during a test helps with remembering what you studied before hand? It's because the human brain associates the things we learn with other senses to recall them easier later. This is why some high schools tried handing out hard candy mints during testing a couple years back. They couldn't hand out gum because of those who may have had braces which is common for high schoolers.
It's gum, and this may be one of the worst situations that could have happened. Funny how you break the rules and there are immediate consequences . I'm also trying to figure out how you don't throw up every time you drink water or eat...
