    I had plenty of the old top buckle of my trousers breaking off, meaning I had to walk around with my hands in my pockets to keep the top of my trousers up and together until I could get to the nurses office and get a saftey pin.

    Oh, and the old forgetting its charity wear what you like day and coming to school in your uniform when everyone else is in their own clothes! Did that once, Dayum it was embarrassing. I ran home crying actually :(

    Far too many to recount. I particularly remember getting to go on a ski trip aged 11, with the year above after one of them had dropped out. We were all sharing rooms, and it became very apparent that I was the only one without pubes. And that I didn't really know what pubes were. Which was bad enough and made me the subject of much teasing.
    And then I decided to draw some on in secret, with biro, which my roommates found understandably hilarious when they found out some days later as I proudly announced I had sprouted a full set overnight. They were a bit blurred.

    When I was still in junior school, I guess I was about seven, we were all getting changed for some kind of physical exercise in the cloak room, boys and girls together since we were so young and only putting on shorts/skirts for the thing.

    I was away with the fairies, utterly lost in some daydream or another and undressing on autopilot. My brain decided that since I was undressing and it wasn't bedtime, I must be getting ready to have a bath.

    I was alerted to my error by one of my fellow girl pupils saying my name loud and shocked as I peeled off my knickers, which alerted everyone elses attention to me standing there completely naked with a 'whu?' look on my face.
    I feel your pain. I went to a birthday party at my friends house aged 5-6 and we had a handstand competition and being quite the little gymnast I won easily and stayed up for about 2 minutes while all else failed around me. After a while I noticed the sniggering and then that it was a bit drafty with my dress over my head, and then it dawned on me that I had forgotten to put any pants on.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Fire alarm, all 1000+ kids standing in rows in the car park and the PE teacher who was awesomely mischievous decided t was the perfect time to sear my mates bag. Pulled him tithe front, in front of everyone, and then continue to extract one porno mag after another in what was a picture perfect performance. Much to the immense humiliation of my friend with the whole school creasing.

    To this day I believe he knew all about them and had it all set up, including setting off the alarm.

    The annual dress down days were the only days in the calendar I actually wore full uniform, partly a result of my warped sense of rebellion, partly because I was too poor for a school uniform and everyone else dressing down meant I could borrow my friend's :(

    At 13 I was totally in love with this girl and so i wrote a poem, took it into school the next day and read it out to her at lunch with her friends next to her...i was that soppy and besotted plus this was back in the mid 80's...and i was ginger

    needless to say i was laughed at and suferred the repercussions throughout the rest of my high school career (moved right down the boy-rating chart)
    This one has to take the cake!

    In year 8 or 9 (I don't remember which), a couple of guys from my year convinced me before a lesson to turn a squash ball they'd cut in half inside out, and put it on my forehead to make a vacuum. I'd seen them doing this, so I thought nothing of it, but of course I forgot to take it off my head as we'd started filing into the classroom after I put it on. Everyone thought it would be hilarious (they were right) not to remind me, and I only remembered that I had put it a couple of minutes after.

    When I took it off, there was a big, perfectly circular, deep purple bruise right in the middle of my forehead. It was about the size and colour of a pepperoni slice and stayed visible for a week or so. The bus I took to and from school also collected pupils from a couple of other schools on its route, so I was the public laughing stock of a fairly large portion of town \o/

    I was furious about it at the time, at least for the first day or two, but a classmate who took a picture of it at the time (against my wishes!) sent me the photo a few years after it happened, and in hindsight it looks utterly hilarious

    I did that a few times, sometimes out of forgetting and sometimes, like mowgli, out of totally badass rebellion against The Man. However, several orders of magnitude more embarrassing than that, is thinking that it's the day before it actually is and going onto the bus wearing your own clothes when everyone else is in uniform, then getting off after a few stops and walking home (past all the other schools' pupils who are waiting for a different bus) so you can change into uniform but by the time you get into school (late, naturally, drawing further attention to yourself) the pupils who saw you on the bus have already told everyone.

    Not that I'd know or anything

    Turning up to the wrong school for my Higher German exam. I was lucky to get to the right school in time

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    This reminds me...

    I was standing in line during a fire drill behind a friend of mine. All of a sudden a long streak of white appeared down the back of his head and uniform blazer; pigeon shit. Both his hair and uniform blazer were jet black, making this stand out all the more. Poor guy was almost in tears as a teacher lead him in the direction of the toilets through a few hundred kids laughing at him.

    Edit: forgot to mention - the lad's nickname from then on was 'Pepe' (after Pepe le Pew).

    Wheeto's cereal came with those half round ball jumping things, you turned them inside out and they'd jump up from the table. I did the same as you Fatiguez when I was about 8 and stuck two to my forehead for two long, but I made it worse by telling everyone they were love bites from my "girlfriend".

    I've just remembered one. During Music class in year 7 or 8 my friends decided to tell me that Sarah Lane (might not be her real name)- widely considered amongst us men of the world (we were about 12) to be the least attractive, most funny looking, weird acting girl in the class- fancied me and was going to ask me out. They also told me they'd told her I would say yes.

    On hearing this news, fuelled by panic, inexperience and immaturity, I stormed into the neighbouring room (we'd all been split into groups) where she was with several other girls and loudly blurted out in the way only a stupid child can, "I do not fancy you, do not ask me out!" to a bunch of confused faces, before quickly returning to my room to fits of laughter, only to be told that they'd made it all up.

    Smooth.

    In science class we were doing experiments with the bunsen burner, some paper caught fire on my burner so I chucked the burning paper into the sink - and to smother it I chucked more paper towels on it. Realising what a idiot I was I opened the taps...the gas taps.

    Drawing on pubes has got to be my wtf moment of the year so far.

    Thanks local.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I did *exactly* this with one of those sucker-arrows. Difference being I did it to myself, and kept the thing on damn near all afternoon, convinced of my comedy genius.

    Welcome mrpon. I was a strange child.


    I think we should hold a hoover hickey amnesty.

    I still have the picture of me aged 12 with what appears to be a large pepperoni glued to my forehead.

    Not that any of you fuckers are gonna see it.

    Not really school related but I once ran down to the corner shop but naked. I was an odd child.

    And to think, years later you commit a similar faux-pas by changing your username to one of the opposite gender.

    Were your friends annoyed when the returned uniform was stretched and torn?

    Yeah, I did that.

    I recall having my photo taken in the first year of high school and the photographer suggested I smiled with all my teeth. This was not a good idea and I am pretty sure it has effected how I smile in photos up to the present day.

    I was a real life "briefcase wanker".

    On my first day at comprehensive school I genuinely turned up with a briefcase because my mum was convinced everyone would have one.

    That first episode of The Inbetweeners was hugely uncomfortable viewing, brought it all flooding back.
