What is something you got in trouble for in school?


In elementary school I got in trouble for eating paper.

How did you get in trouble?

Well, because I was one of those kids who was go-go-go, I wouldn't eat because I wanted to go to recess, and so I would be doing an assignment and then eat the corners of the assignment paper.


In kindergarten we had to wipe up our tables every day, after snack time, before recess, and I really didn't want to. So I just went out to recess and my teacher caught me. So I cried.

Did they tell your parents?

Yeah. It was a really bad day.


Back in high school, I had just gotten my license and I was going to a playoff basketball game for a high school team and I'm in a hurry, there's a lot of people and I'm backing up and I don't have enough time to look and I run into a post. I hit a post. Right after I got my license.

Did your parents get mad?

Yeah... It could have been a lot worse.


I got in trouble for not telling my mom where I was.

Where were you?

I was at a pool when I told her I was in a movie.

Would you do it again?

I probably would.


In elementary school we had this garden, and until you were in eighth grade you couldn't go into this garden. It's like a big privilege. And I left my plate out. And they literally kicked every single guy out of the garden, because of me. We lost all of our privileges because I left a plate out there. That was probably the most trouble I have ever been in. And everyone hated me for like a week because I screwed up.
