17 Moments In Primary School That Were Truly Heartbreaking
Being partners with the teacher was the worst.
P.E. was a drag at the best of times, but forgetting your kit and having to exercise in your vest and pants was a downright nightmare.
As was being forced to sit on the knobbly bit of the bench.
Not getting an invite to someone on your class's birthday party was the ultimate rejection.
Followed closely by asking someone if you could join in with their game, only to be told: "ummm I don't know, it's not my game."
Being sent out of the classroom and having to watch your classmates through that little window in the door was actually painful.
But not as bad as getting a time out during Friday afternoon playtime.
Nothing was more shameful than accidentally calling your teacher mum...
...apart from getting stuck with a terrible, embarrassing nickname.
Being picked last for any kind of group activity was rejection at its finest.
And ending up being partnered with the teacher was enough to push you over the edge.
Having to play a really shit character in the nativity was the ultimate slap in the face.
Being the only person still writing in pencil because you hadn't gotten your handwriting certificate was truly heartbreaking.
But you didn't know true shame until you were picked to read aloud, and then stumbled on an unexpectedly long word.
And you didn't know true pain until you smacked your face on a crash mat.
Scraping your knee in the playground made you feel like a fallen soldier...
...and it was only made worse by having to tend to your wounds with a wet paper towel.
And finally, there was nothing worse than starting the school year wearing clothes that were miles too big.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
