    I got told off for jumping over the 'bummer's mat' at school. Basically, anyone who trod on it (just a hessian mat in the corridor) was a bummer. Anyway, as I approached, I ran and leapt over it and got caught by the English teacher who made me walk over it properly to everyone's amusement - and he was oblivious to the shameful act of doing this

    One lunchtime a window got broken and the blame was lumped on a lad I often would hang round with, for some reason he always attracted a lot of hate and people were always having a go at him. He didn't do it because we were hanging about on the other side of the school when it happened. He was questioned and told the teachers he was hanging round with me, all of a sudden I was prime suspect and I got dragged out of history and read the riot act by a teacher who despite not knowing me at all, basically called me a liar and said that my honest account wasn't adding up. It didn't half get my goat, I was fuming and I remember going home and trying to cool my temper with a massive bowl of ice cream. It kinda worked.

    The window-breaker was never caught and funnily enough, the then-head of year occasionally comes into where I work and I always remember this little incident when I see her. Isn't it funny how little things from school can still stick with you years later?

    I farted down a microphone during morning assembly, i hid behind the stage curtain was where all the music equipment was, switched on the mic and let rip. There was two massive speakers at each side of the hall and it was really loud. The whole school fell about laughing (apart from the teachers). I got a good telling off about the misuse of school equipment.

    It was in 1992 i was 14 at the time. Teachers hauled me out from behind the curtain, and i took a bow on the stage in front of the whole school (years7-12) which got even more laughs, it took about 20 mins for everybody to calm down and teachers to get back to some kind of order. I became something of a school celebrity after that. I still know a couple of old school mates and when we talk about our school days we still laugh about it.

    At my secondary school we had to walk down the road to a nearby sports centre for PE because we didn't have the facilities on-site. I once bunked off with two of my friends and one of them put her foot in a manhole and had to have stitches in her leg, so we all got loads of detentions and had to be "escorted" to PE from then on.

    I got in trouble during a German lesson once because we had an assignment to write about ourselves as if we were writing from the future, then the teacher would read them out and we'd have to guess who had written what. I put down my job as "porn star" and the teacher read it out as "adult film actress" in a deadpan voice, then lectured me about how this wasn't as funny as I thought it was (no, it was funnier)

    Got dragged in front of the headmaster for doing "WWF Wrestling" on the Drama Studio stage one lunchtime, there were about 20 of us crammed on there having a right Royal Rumble...

    For repeatedly referring one of our teachers as 'David Bellamy' - he finally had enough of us doing it and exploded, mainly at me. It was scary, he went all red with anger.
    For breaking the door handles off by bending them upwards and snapping the square rod that went through the middle.
    Probably quite a bit more if I think about it........

    For some reason the bummer's mat makes me giggle I'm sure we had stuff like that but I can't remember what the forbidden actions were.
