I got suspended in 10th grade for telling the teacher to stick a chocolate milk up her a**....although I could have handled the situation better...I
believe I was partially justified. Please keep in mind, I was a straight A student and NEVER caused any ruckus. I was always a polite child but I was
taught to stand up for myself. Here's the story.
We were in "cooking" class and we made chocolate chip cookies or something that day. All these years, I have forgotten exactly what we
cooked...Anyway, the teacher told us that we had 5 minutes to go to the vending machine and get a drink. I didn't have any money...sadly our family
was poor and of course my parents weren't able to send me to school with any money other than what might have been needed for a necessity. This
particular day, I didn't have a penny on me. One of the cook's in the cafeteria asked me what was going on, and I explained to her that we were
supposed to be getting a drink but I hadn't a dime to my name. She (love her heart) went over to the milk cooler, opened it up and threw me a
Everyone went back into the classroom, sat down and began eating. I opened my chocolate milk up and did the same. The teacher noticed the milk,
stopped dead in her tracks and asked "What is that?" I answered that it was a chocolate milk. Not knowing where this was going, I thought she had
went bonkers...did she not know what a milk looked like??? She got quite upset and said, "Yes, I know what it is, why do you have it?" I told her
what had happened, explaining that one of the nice cooks gave it to me. She went "bonkers" alright. Threw a hissy fit. She said that it wasn't fair
to the other students and I had to throw it away. I asked her what was I supposed to drink? I didn't think it was fair that the other students had
money to get a pop or whatever out of the machine. She said "THROW IT AWAY NOW". I said, "Better yet, why don't you stick this milk up your
Needless to say, that led me to the vice principal's office. He asked me why on earth I told the teacher (which he repeated with a chuckle) what I
told her. I explained to him what happened. He shook his head and told me that he HATED to do this but this teacher was adamant that something must be
done, so I got suspended for 2 days. He told me he actually understood, but wished I had chosen my words more carefully or came to him with the
situation. He told me the only reason that he suspended me was because they had to use me as an example. They couldn't let the other students get by
with "cussing" a teacher. I understood and took my 2 days like a champ.
So, I can't say without knowing the situation IF it was necessary to suspend the child or not. Hard to say what the word was and what the situation
may have called for.
