Have you just been in school and came across something you wish you could un-see? Though it’s good to be comfortable in your surrounds, here’s things you should just not do. Seems that people don’t know between wrong and right. Many don’t even know the difference between time and place either. Most people may even be guilty of these, how embarrassing, right?
One thing not to do in school is talk to yourself. If you forget something and suddenly remember, fantastic. However does it need to be announced to the world? Talking to yourself in public makes you look like a wacko. It’s best to keep silent in those situations. Just don’t be that one person who talks to themselves.
Another thing not to do is pick your nose. Sure, it’s annoying when there isn’t any Kleenex in sight or something is peeking out, this does not make it excusable. Toilet paper is another wonderful replacement for Kleenex and can be found in just about every school bathroom. Just don’t pick your nose. Not only is it very disgusting it is also provides gossips to your classmates.
Third thing you should never do in school, that tons of people are guilty of, is adjusting yourself. So if a girl gets a new pair of underwear or bras that doesn’t want to work or just doesn’t want to cooperate, go somewhere no one can see and adjust yourself. Sure, your comfortable being yourself and all, but your classmates do not want to see you picking a wedges. Guys if you need to adjust yourself shake a leg! We are in a school setting.
Now one thing to never do in school that just about everyone is guilty of is passing gas. Yes, it’s natural and yes it just happens sometimes, that’s excusable. For the students out there who just sit in class and fart aloud then giggle about it, it is not funny. I’m sure your classmates don’t want to smell your body functions. If you can go out of the classroom and go to the bathroom to do it then that’s fine. Again, no one wants to smell you.
The last one to mention is do not stare. Staring at people is rude. The people who sit there and stare at their classmates, don’t, it’s weird. When people realize they’re getting stared at it makes them uncomfortable. If you see someone with a ridiculous outfit on, don’t stare. Who knows what their situation and style may be. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but keep them to yourself for the sake of being polite. Just don’t stare.
I’m sure after reading our “Things not to do in school” you’re probably remembering a time you committed one of these acts or you may have had a friend who has. Let’s not add to those regrets.
