its about time
I got paddled many many times in school up to my 12th grade year
our high school would bring you in front of class and get 10 licks with the paddle in front of everyone... you learned your lesson.
and I did, and I knew when I screwed up big time. If I smarted off I was immediately apologizing for losing my cool to avoid standing in front of
classroom getting paddled.
I did get in 2 fights, 1 was with a weapon I had a butterfly knife and pulled it when 2 guys tried to jump me I told them 1 at a time I'd put it up.
Well the 2nd guy backs off and I put the knife away and started fighting 1 on 1 course I got 15 licks for that in the principals office the other guy
got 10 and my butterfly knife was taken and my dad had to come to school to pick the knife up before i could get it back.
Course back then we were allowed to bring guns to school, which most people are like WTF?!?
ill explain, in deep south GA. back in late 80's early 90's you were allowed to bring a shotgun or rifle to school as long as you had a gun rack or
a gun lock in the vehicle. You also had to bring a copy of your hunting license to the office and a letter from your parents as well as hunter safety
course proof. All hunters who brought their guns for after school hunting trips with the hunt club also had to give copies of their car keys to the
office and hunters were not allowed to go back to their vehicles during the day only when school had completed.
I only brought a 20 gauge to school my 11th grade year, cause after school we'd all go dove hunting in the school field. And we'd have an amazing
School was much better back then and paddling was a good thing.
Course my first 2 years of highschool our school had a smoking section for students in 1988/1989, It was funky going from elementary school to
highschool and seeing teachers and students sharing the smoking section.
They banned student smoking on campus in my 10th grade year, and my school highschool was 8th through 12th. We didn't have middle school we had
elementary which was 3rd through 7th. And the way the student smoking section worked is you also had to have a letter from parents acknowledging you
but in 1991 they banned that
I loved highschool soooo much freedom and fun, the paddlings hurt but noone acted out, never had trouble even with students having guns and we had
a hunt club on campus and our yearbook had them all lined up with deer heads, gator tails, rabbits, squirrels and dove They'd call it the critter
collection, and it was good eatin' during hunting season if the hunt club was successful they'd bring the meat in for school lunches, and we'd have
deer steak, gator tail, rabbit stew and such for school lunch... those were rare but amazing.
