    First off. I support cell phones at schools. Never know when you have to call your parents after school. I know I need mine.


    Secondly, I don't have text messaging. Never felt the need to when I could just call them.



    But when you're sitting in class, and you whop out the cell phone-- when the teacher's trying to oh, I don't know. Teach you something important? -- and hide it behind a purse or a jacket.... You really deserve to have it taken away.


    You're not fooling anyone. If you see someone looking down into their jacket/purse/bag and not moving....

    Texting.


    And then I went to spend the night at a friends.
    We ATTEMPTED to play some wii.


    AHAHAHAHAHAHA. No. He got him some texts.



    Texts should be used responsibly or something.
    There's good times for them.
    And there's more bad times for them.


    So yeah. Rant over.
    Teenagers/young adults these days.

    Trulen I agree 100%. Sometimes people are idiots with texting in school and deserve punishment.

    Yeah, but at the same time...it's kind of weird...because now at college you can just openly text in class and not get in trouble for it.

    I agree, USING your phone in school should be banned.

    But what do you mean by, "No. He got him some texts."

    Haha, sorry that you feel that way Trulen. I personally would have died in my classes had I not been able to text, teachers don't really "teach" anymore, they read out of textbooks, when...oh wait I can do the same thing. Sure it's annoying when you're trying to do something with a friend and they're texting the whole time, but it's a way to keep in touch without having a verbal conversation which in my opinion is much more annoying to listen to. I text pretty much everywhere, I don't look at my phone anymore when I do it, I text under desks, while driving, watching movies etc. I'm not one for calling people, I prefer texts so I'm on the side of those advocating texting.

    LOL this reminds me of a time my friend answered his phone during his Geography class. The teacher was up giving a lecture, and then we hear "hello." Everybody turned around and looked at him. "Oh, hi mom." *moves phone to the side* "It's my mom." "Oh, I'm just in Geography class." "Ok, bye mom." LOL the teacher was so pissed.


    On topic: I don't really see anything wrong with texting in class, but I do find it comical how stupid people are in thinking that they are being secretive. It is usually pretty obvious that they are either masturbating or texting.

    I agree with Dakuda...again.

    I have never texted and probably never will. There's nothing so important that it can't wait for a voice call in the hall after class. That office policy sounds awesome.

    On a side note, has anyone realized the person with the worst spelling in this thread is the heaviest texter? ...Just something to ponder.
