12. This reminds me of something that happened to me as a kid.

Back when I was in elementary school way back in the 1990's (god I feel old) I had a toy star wars gun that made noises and lit up when you fired. I wanted to bring it to school one day, because it was going to be a fun party toy and we were allowed to bring toys, but my mom told me that I couldn't because she thought it might get me in trouble. Even back then I thought that was stupid policy. Things must be a lot worse now though, because we had watergun fights several times during the spring months and the teachers would even bring guns and join in. Sadly, I doubt that happens anymore which sucks, because I think it's a good thing for elementary school teachers to kind of be friends with the students. It's not appropriate for high school or college, but it was one of the things I liked about elementary school.
