RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Apparently I suck at driving

Because instead of going 60 or 65 in a 45 zone, I go 50 at the most.

Try a gear that makes high speeds seem slower. Low gears scare the hell out of me.

It's not that I'm scared; I don't want to get a ticket. If I get a ticket, I won't get a car of my own (I currently have to share a car with my dad; he said I'll get his car if I go a year without getting a ticket).

Going that slow will get you a ticket. Drive about 5 under the limit if you're nervous.

Theres a 10 mile per hour tolerance. for example if its 65 miles per hour you can legally go 75, and 55 court will dismiss in your favor even if some cop did try to ticket you.

I have no idea what you think I said, but I said I always drive 5 over the limit.

Re: Apparently I suck at driving

Apparently I'm a pussy because I won't let one drive with one of my friends in the trunk.

To put it simply, he wants to be in the trunk for the purpose of startling people while we're moving.

What we're doing right now is a disaster waiting to happen. We do Chinese fire drills on a near-daily basis.

On one occasion, we've done a Chinese fire drill with three cars.

It's where you stop at a stop sign or a red light and everyone gets out of the car and switches seats.

Agreed. What if some butt is too busy ramming plants up his ass to notice the red light and runs two of your party down while you are carrying the drill out?

Technically Chinese fire drills are legal, so it would be entirely his fault and I could sue him and probably win.

Re: Apparently I suck at driving

Chinese Fire Drills are the bomb. They're absolutely hysterical. I've really only seen one or two in my life, and I can tell ya - I've near died laughing every time. Not so much because the whole switching seats is funny in itself, but because the people doing it know they're being funny, and well, I'm one of those people that can't help but laugh when someone else is laughing. And with 3 cars, I bet you really made some random people's days!

As for the whole speed thing, go at the speed limit or 5 over. I was in a car with a cop one time, and she was like, "Hmm, that persons going slow... that's suspicious." So, yeah, if you're looking to not get cop attention, go a bit faster than the speed limit. Plus, if your going under the speed limit with cars piled up behind you, you'll end up making them all mad, and they'll try and go around you and stuff, which can be more dangerous. Plus, if they honk and stuff, you'll be all stressed out, and it's not worth it.

But as for going 65 in a 45 zone - that's rediculous, I agree. If assholes on the road are doing that, then just let'em do it. It's not worth getting pulled over for.

I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. The sinners are much more fun.
Everyone can back up their opinions. Some people just do it a whole lot better than others. - Rebelnerd

Re: Apparently I suck at driving

I "raced" with one of my friends today, and I lost, again. We were driving on a small road alongside a mall (one of those roads that you go along when you're trying to find a row of parking spots), and I refused to go more than 30. My other friend went 60, and another friend went 80 down the parking lot.
