What is a rule at your workplace/school that you think is stupid?

Do you have any stupid rules at your school or workplace? This can be any rule, whether it be a dress code, something that is banned, or anything else! I find these things hilarious, so please share them!

"No leggings/jeggings/yoga pants,"

-School.

Why? This is so illogical... You should start some kind of protest where everybody (yes, everybody!) wears leggings/jeggings/yogapants to school

You can't put water bottles on the desks?

This is such a stupid rule! I mean, drinking water is a human right?

No bandanas! It supports gangs!
Seriously?! I have a cute wolf bandana that I might like to wear in my hair! How would it have anything to do with a gang?!

Don't do any makeup. Almost every girl in my class break this rule and teachers never punish them.

We are not allowed to drink water (!) during class. This is so stupid, I mean, drinking water is a human right? Honestly, I don't care, I do it anyway. And so should everyone else!

In my opinion, kids should be allowed to have water bottles in class. I am allowed to because of my heart problems. You can have a water bottle in class where I go to school, but not in gym class, which I think is dumb. You run around a lot in gym class, and you can get dehydrated easily, especially on a hot day. That's not healthy.

Yes, I also think that's not healthy. Dehydration can lead to headache and nausea, and therefore you can't concentrate well in class. Teachers should know this. I can understand that we aren't allowed to drink coke or soft drinks, but water is a human right. Especially on hot days, drinking not enough water is dangerous.

The school rules seem to be alright where I live, although they have become more lenient with their cellular phone policies, which is nice...it would be a tad bit better to have some extra freedom on the use of phones...Also...a funny quote my teacher during the first week of school showed my class was quite interesting to think about...He fact they tell eighteen or even seventeen year olds to decide their fates, their future jobs....yet they tell us we must ask to use the restroom...Although See More▼

No dating! Everyone in the school likes someone, but the teachers say that we can't date!
Marvel_Gleek
Our school bans dating too...so couples only date outside of school.

Whoa, is that true? Dating belongs to the private life of the students, and teachers are not allowed to make rules outside of school!
