Stories Of The Biggest Scandals At These People's Schools.


This article is based on the AskReddit question "What was the scandal at your school?"

(Source can be found at the end of the article)

1. We were watching a movie in chemistry class, and the lights were turned off. All of a sudden while watching, one of the girls screamed and our teacher turned on the lights. We all turned around and saw one of the girls in our class giving a guy a blowjob during the movie. Our teacher almost got fired because he didn't notice it happening immediately.


2. Someone created a Facebook hate page for our school where the admin posted offensive posts about the principal and teachers (basically hate) and he got caught after a few months of running it. The posts were actually very funny and the page was quite the talk of our school.

Turned out it was the student leader of our school who created the page. Drama ensued. The police was involved too. He was then made to apologize in front of the whole school at an assembly, but he had no remorse. He was smiling the entire time, and trying not to laugh.


3. I had a student start spreading rumors that I was cheating on my wife with her. I'm gay, I'm married to a man. My boss and I had a good laugh about that silly rumor.


4. One of my best friends (still one of my best friends, actually) was pretty much a walking scandal. Openly gay dude in a small school in southern Appalachia. Every single day, there was some new whisper about him, something he did that just inspired people to carry on like he was some kind of witch. Apparently he was breaking into gay bars, sleeping with male teachers, partying like the sinful sodomite he is, and was dying of three different venereal diseases.

Also, was running off to join Broadway a couple of times.

Which is funny, because when his dad kicked him out, my mom took him in, so the most I usually saw him do was get high, botch making pizza, and think way too hard about Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

5. A couple got caught having sex in the Biology lab. He was using test tubes to pleasure her, and after a few rounds, the test tube broke while inside her. They freaked out and that's when the lab teacher walked in. They took her to the hospital, and both of them were expelled later that week.


6. The principal stole money from the school that was supposed to be for the Russian Club. There was no Russian Club. He ran off with one of the secretaries to Disneyland.


7. Had a French Teacher who had a "hearing aid service dog". Then later the school found out she had no disabilities and the dog wasn't a registered service dog. She got fired for lying. Basically just wanted her dog there.


8. This senior right before graduating made these weed muffins and delivered them to another high school down the road. They left them in the teachers lounge as a prank. 19 staff members ended up eating them and had to go to the hospital.


9. Basically, the senior prank was going to be that they start a water ballon fight in the middle of the main building. Principle denied it. Seniors decided to do it anyway. There I am walking to class when all of a sudden people start shouting and I see water balloons flying everywhere. Then it escalated. Started off with people throwing water bottles, but it started getting out of hand quickly. People were throwing whatever they could get their hands on, and this quickly spread through the rest of the school. Some kids even stole the security guards golf cart and crashed it. Police where called in and stayed there the rest of the year, about 2 weeks. Also, we weren't allowed into the middle of the main building, we had to find alternate routes to get to our classes, and were not allowed to just stand around inside the building. A few seniors were suspended and were not allowed to walk at graduation, if they even did graduate. And I hear from my sister that senior pranks are still not allowed. It's been about 8 or 9 years since all this happened.

10. A kid in my religion class my sophomore year brought a huge water bottle filled with vodka one day to class. He proceeded to drink the entire thing. The kicker was that he had also taken 2 Vicodin before he drank the thing. Ended up foaming at the mouth and had to be taken by the ambulance in a wheel chair. He lived but was expelled afterwards.

We weren't allowed to bring water bottles for a while after that.


11. Our 8th grade earth science class was supposed to go on an overnight camping trip to apply stuff we learned in class. Ended up not getting approval from the district to do the overnight, so we did a day trip to the state park instead. We were sent out on different trails to hike in groups and fill in these packets. One (coed) group ends up sitting at a picnic table instead and one girl is teaching the other girls how to give good blow jobs and demonstrating on her boyfriend as a chaperone walks by to check on them. So much drama and we all got interviewed one by one at school on Monday. Boyfriend got suspended for indecent exposure. Girl got talking to.


12. The girl who hid her pregnancy from friends, family, everyone. Then she delivered the baby by herself in a shed behind her house one night. She came to school the next day and left the baby in the trunk of her car, a candy apple red fully restored 60s Mustang by the way. Someone heard it crying thankfully and it was fine. When confronted, her excuse was that "I didn't want to miss school and didn't have a babysitter". Her family still didn't know she'd had a baby when they were called. By the police.


13. Oh man i forgot about this until now. In middle school we had to take sex Ed in 7th grade. Our teacher was new to the school, young (mid-20s I would guess), pretty blond. All the boys had crushes on her. Somehow someone discovered she had been a model for some nude stuff before she started teaching (I don't remember if it was full out porn, but definitely soft core stuff) and found the pictures. They got copies and hung them all over school. She quit.

14. This girl claimed that the science teacher raped her after he wouldn't give her a better grade. The guy was actually a really great and respectful teacher. He was a bit weird but hey what do you expect from a science teacher. Word got around and then administration heard about it and the girl fessed up and told everyone it was a lie. The teacher was basically forced to leave town after this because apparently people don't like alleged rapists around their children. So basically this high school girl completely ruined this guy's life over a C in science. It's sickening that even though we're technically innocent until proven guilty it doesn't really work out that way.


15. Kid defecated in a bin for a 10 bet. Teacher found it while taking a class into the classroom containing said bin, causing her to run out of the room to the toilet where she vomited. CCTV was used to find the culprit who was expelled. Worst part is he didn't even get the 10.


16. I had a blog back in the early 2000's when I was in 8th grade. I shared it with a couple of my classmates. Didn't have anything terrible. Mostly rants and a couple of pictures of me and my friends doing dumb stuff (typical junior high stuff). Well my school got wind of it and decided to give my parents a call.

The principal sat me down with my parents and printed the entire website. They showed them all the posts and pointed out all the curse words that I had used (I went to a catholic school). Then they said that I could be facing lawsuits for posting my friends pictures online without their permission. It was this whole big deal and my class thought I was going to be expelled. They even notified the high school I had applied to and told me I was facing rejection (another catholic school). 1 week later and nothing came up of it. The whole thing blew over and I didn't hear another word about it. My parents and I still laugh about it to this day.


17. My theatre department went through 8 theatre teachers in 3 years. The first one who had been there for 10 years or so was fired for sexual harassment and it was like a snowball effect going through one teacher after another after that for other reasons. Needless to say rumors were flying everywhere.

18. When I was in Grade 8 my class was the worst class in the school. Majority of the students were beyond disrespectful and just out right horrible.

I have multiple stories from this class.

1Teacher planned on paying his mortgage after school and meant to keep his money in the car, instead he left it in his coat. Someone shoved their grimy hands into his coat and stole his mortgage money and also took the classes field trip money at the same time. The police were called in to investigate, but the student responsible was never caught.

2The class outright made a supply teacher cry during a lesson in front of everyone. I forget the full reason to why she was crying, but I remember everyone was so evil to her for no reason, she was incredibly kind, people just saw her as weak and took advantage.

3Everyone was pantsing each other so the police were called to teach everyone about sexual harassment.


19. One of the kids, who was a well known memer and had multiple meme accounts on twitter created a twitter account named (name of my school district) shooter and posted some things about Columbine and said he was going to shoot up the school. Apparently he meant that as a "joke" and was creating a "meme." He got expelled and half the school (my half) thinks that what he did was horrible, while the other half worships him as the "Dankest Memer."


20. Two teachers were having a affair, (both were married and had a family) wanted to take things "further" and found a prostitute on Craig's list to have a threesome with at a motel, Turns out it was a undercover cop. Most shocking thing I've ever heard because they were both pretty cool people .


21. Jock went out with the smartest girl in school. Smart girl was very nice and tho not gorgeous she was very popular and loved. Jock was kinda picked on until he started dating her and got a lot of positive attention after they were a couple. One day someone was looking up an 16+ dance club and found pics of the jock and a promiscuous girl at our school grinding and kissing. They weren't centered in the pic more of a "Where's Waldo" thing but it was clear it was them. They denied at first, then said those pics were from a long time ago.

People called the club and it said all the pics were from that month. Their stories kinda fell apart after that. Smart girl was crying the day the pics broke out, jock was isolated from all social groups, promiscuous girl walked in at lunch and some people chanted slut. It was intense. I felt bad for smart girl obviously because she was so nice and didn't deserve any of it but in hindsight I feel like the other two got too harsh of a treatment.

22. There was nothing major but the one I can remember now is the day that there was supposed to be a school shooting. Apparently someone wrote something on a locker or something so the news spread and everyone discussed whether or not they were going to school. It ended up being a pretty hilarious day at school if you had a sense of humor about it. Kids were wearing hoodies and shades in the hallways trying to look shady like it was them. One teacher wore a shirt with a target on it but they quickly shut that joke down and made him change.

I forgot about it and got stoned that morning and during first period all the teachers were called out for a quick talk about how to handle the day. After the teacher left I started getting paranoid that the shooter was in the classroom and it actually freaked me out pretty bad until someone made a comment about wiping and we got on the discussion of standing or sitting when you wipe. That calmed me down.


23. The (former) vice-principal got caught changing his sons grades so he would be eligible for more academic scholarships. Needless to say he got caught and now teaches grade 8 socials at another school in town.


24. A pretty unattractive girl who was largely ignored by 99% of the kids in my grade started dating a fairly unattractive guy who was new to the school.

One fateful day, the guy and girl were caught by a school maintenance dude having sex in the handicapped stall of the boys' bathroom in the senior wing. Other kids had walked in, seen naked bodies writhing around under the stall walls, and alerted the maintenance dude.

Soon it circulated that the guy had been kicked out of several previous schools for this exact same thing. He and the girl disappeared from school for a while - eventually the girl came back. She was from a culture where doing this sort of thing can rain down serious punishment on you so there was a rumor that her parents had tried to send her to live with relatives in their home country.

At first the girl claimed that nothing had happened and it was just rumors. Then she claimed that they were only making out with some of their clothing off. Then she claimed that it wasn't full penetrative sex. The next year, she was gone again.

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like


My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

- shicole3



I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Albert or Arnold


Whether Albert Einstein or Arnold Schwarzenegger would be more useful to have around during a Zombie apocalypse. How on earth would Albert Einstein come in handy!?

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.

I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.

An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

Stupid microwaves. Having a man child talk down to me about how microwaves work only for him to google it and prove me right. He slept on the sofa that night.

Shower Schedule

My friend keeps telling me that the norm is that a person should shower once a week. This has been going on for years. I'm almost convinced he's trolling me.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence


How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

Male Chickens

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

Lightning McQueen

Me and my friend were drinking underage, we ended up in an argument of whether lightning McQueen's eyes were blue or green. Somehow throughout the whole thing both of us never thought to straight up google a picture.

Woman wanted ice on the bottom of her drink.

Now read that sentence again and try to imagine arguing with that particular brand of stupid.

Time Zones Exist

Coworker claimed that it was the same time of day and the same season on the whole globe. Had to get 4 coworkers to confirm to him that time zones do in fact exist.

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

"that's orange"

"no, it's red"



It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Andre 2000?


I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)

The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.


Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.

I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.


Balloon to Heaven

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky. He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space.

And he got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.


Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.



Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.




3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.


Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.


Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.


Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.



My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.



How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).

How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.


Dogs and Chocolate


I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.


Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.


Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.


Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.


Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.


Stars In Their Multitude


I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.



My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.


Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.


Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...


Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
