I drank gin from a Smurfette thermos in the locker room.

My friends and I cornered the quarterback of the football team and beat him mercilessly.
Gotta say even today that that was a fun afternoon.

I was expelled for half the year but it all worked out because I was already taking advanced classes at college and earned course credits in the interim.

Nothing. I was every teacher's dream.

I did once get taken down for something a friend of mine did; the hs principal was in a mood to make an example, and dissuade other people from hanging out with this girl, and attempted to play then "See what happens when you associate with these types? You get taken down by association" game" My parents met with him, and while the consequence wasn't rescinded, they were very open that, no, they were not in favor of his tactics of socially pressuring students to "not be friends" with others, and I knew that I wasn't in trouble with THEM for being friends with a girl the principal wasn't fond of. It was the only time I was ever disciplined at school, in 13 years of public schooling.

Talked out of turn. I was a bit of a goodie-two-shoes.

During homecoming week it was a unwritten tradition at our school for the seniors to "initiate" the freshmen by catching them around town and taking them out in the country a couple miles, making them walk back in. During the week each class would be working on their floats so it wasn't hard to catch unsuspecting freshmen.

A couple other seniors and I picked up a smart a** younger brother of one of our classmates and hauled him only a mile out of town, but made him strip to nothing except his shoes and socks. We told him where his clothes would be ONE BLOCK into the town. He had a corn field to run in up to the city limits, but was going to have to hoof it that one block between houses to his clothes stash.

He reported this to the Superintendent and surprise upon surprise we got called into his office. The kid lied and said we took money from his billfold to get us in more trouble. We didn't, but still had to pony up the amount he said that he was missing between the three of us. We walked out of the office basically getting our hands slapped after giving the kid the money we didn't take and giving a "heartfelt" apology. I've got to say it was worth it just from the laugh we had watching his naked butt run into that cornfield. Our "victim" and I have laughed about this several times over the last 40 years.

Today, we'd have been arrested, given a permanent record, and most likely expelled from school. Back then, the Superintendent had the power to handle nearly everything with the backing of parents. My how times have changed.
