Writing my punishment lines ideas because it

Does anybody else have to write lines on a regular basis in addition to being caned?

If so do you have to write them in detention? If so what are your detentions like?

Have you ever been given lines in a public place? (I was given 100 lines, “I must not forget to buy teabags at the supermarket” in front of a very confused checkout girl last week. I found the public humiliation to be a fantastic turn-on, my girlfriend didn’t stop laughing for about an hour afterwards, and who knows what the checkout girl thought!

How many are reasonable for a mild punishment and how many for a severe one? (anybody have any particularly interesting school memories?). Did anyone ever get lines from a prefect at school?

Anybody know any links to sites concerning other forms of school discipline (lines, detentions etc?)

If anything I find the idea of written lines as much of a thrill as cp, especially those nervy minutes while the finished product is inspected for neatness and completeness. It’s not a pleasure I often have, sadly.

I was once playfully given a written punishment by a primary school teacher friend who ordered me to start at 600 and write out thus:

600 – 1½ = 598½
598½ – 1½ = 597

right down to 1½ – 1½ = 0. She still doesn’t know that I actually went away and did it.

My only genuine school punishment was a very unimaginative one: 100 lines of “I must remember to give in my Religious Education book on Friday morning”. Not more than an hour’s inconvenience, and the RE teacher was quite nice anyway, so I rather enjoyed it.

I must admit to actually quite dislike writing out large numbers of lines, but I really enjoy the thrill of being given them and the apprehension when I am actually handing them in.

I much prefer writing them out in detention but I normally only get them to do on “Girl’s nights out” when I’m stuck in on my own. It’s effectively a way of banning me from using the internet cos I’m normally given so many to do that I can’t do them all and still have time for a bit of surfing. It takes me about 40 mins to do 100 on average so I can get up to 400, depending on how long she is out for.

I’d never thought of only writing out one less than the total. That would give me a chance to actually do the punishment but still get another punishment for not doing it properly (my lines are ripped up and repeated if they are late, untidy or incomplete.

Pete – you are faster than me, I can only manage 1,000 words an hour on average. Perhaps your girlfriend should make your lines a little longer, or insist on the use of block capitals, which really inflates the tedium and time it takes. Just a suggestion!

I often had to do 100 lines at school – and I hated it. My dad, who was a teacher, once shpwed me how to fix 2 pencils together and so write 2 lines at once, and half the time it took.

Writing my punishment lines ideas on each

Later I managed with a lot of selotape do join 5 pencils! I also had some fun handing in exactly 99 and being very amused that no teacher ever noticed my deception.

Oh dear! – what kind of punnishment do I deserve for revelling in these happy memories today?

I have a vague recollection of reading a quotation from a late C19th novel in which a schoolboy begs for his punishment to be “commuted to 500 Latin lines”, probably instead of the cane. So he appears to consider 500 lines to be about as severe. I doubt that the schoolmaster agreed.

However. lines in the 1890s was a more onerous punishment than today. First, the fountain pen was not yet available and the pens of the day would write only three or four words before needing to be dipped and blotted (or ‘pounced’). Second, ‘lines’ really did mean lines, as in lines of verse, usually Latin and most likely Virgil’s Aeneid. To copy out 500 different lines in a foreign language is rather worse than repetitively writing a promise of good behaviour. It also saved the master any trouble thinking of what to write: he could simply bark “Take 100 lines” and the pupil would know that he had to write out lines 1-100 of a pre-arranged text. Thirdly, the then universal cursive copperplate handwriting was much more fiddly than today’s styles. It involved extra pressure on the nib for downstrokes, and lighter pressure for the thinner upstrokes. Awkward if you want to write fast.

Today, 100 lines of 12 words can be written in about an hour, even if you’re not too fast. Personally, I would rate 1-3 hours as mild, 4-7 as moderate, and 8-12 as getting towards severe.

At my school the religion teacher, Miss Franklin, always gave two punishments for us when we misbehaved in her class. Firstly for detention we had to write the first 5 pages of Genesis ten times. When everyone had finished. We were each called to the front of the classroom where we each got six good whacks with the paddle. I don’t know if anybody on this forum ever had the paddle before, but six whacks with it brought you to tears. What made it worse was us girls having to bend over in front of the boys.

Hi, Im Kay and I’m still at school in the UK. Lines are given a lot at our school, an all girls private school.

If we are caught doing anything wrong during the week, we are asked to report to the head girl or Headmistress on a Friday lunchtime, and collect our Weekend writing punishment.

This could be betewwen 500 and 1000 Lines usually.

We either accept them or we get put on report and have to attend detention every lunch break and evening until the teacher decides different.

I hate writing Lines, they make my fingers blister, but its the better of two evils.

It must be a deterrant though, because I am rarely in trouble these days. (touch wood)

I have never experienced CP Jon, so I don’t honestly know.

I would maybe choose CP because it’s all over with there and then?

Honestly, I am really not sure?

Kay, It’s too bad you haven’t had any CP experience to help you make up your mind. You must have some interest or you wouldn’t have found this site. It’s really unfortunate that CP has been taken out of the schools. I’m sure that you would have been interested to find out what a few strokes of the cane on the seat of your knickers from an experienced Headmistress, or a few whacks of a plimsoll wielded by a strict games mistress would be like. Who knows, you might never write lines again. Jon

At my grmmar school in the late 1950’s we were often given lines to write after the school day had ended. They were then inspected and if there was any error anywhere then we were called into the deputy heads office and given the cane ( six of the best ). I always thought this was a double punishment but no-one ever queried it in those days.

One of our teachers ( the Art teacher ) had an interesting way of applying class yime punishment. He would make the culprit bend over and touch their toes and then leave them in that position for as many as 20 minutes. It can make you sweat and can make the back and legs ache. Also it is quiet embarrassing to be left in the position and of course the work being done was not being done whilst you were bent over amnd this had to be done later.

I’m still given lines to write – usually 100 at a time although I have just finished writing 500 for spending too much over the Christmas period.

My wife inspects the lines when I have finished them and, if they are not satisfactory gives me the cane. She allows 20 minutes per 50 lines. This is Ok at first but gets really hard when writing 200 or 300.

Personally I’d prefer to be given the cane first instead of the lines. The trouble is that I usually get it after writing them anyway as she always finds something wrong with my writing of them

Found an interesting program at this address:

FOW, for “Fond of Writing”. Or typing, as the case may be. Can be used for long-distance impositions (over E-mail) as well as domestically. And it saves the disciplinarian the trouble of checking!

For a more traditional punishment could the lines be handwritten and then scanned in? I don’t see how the recipient would be able to cheat if they numbered the lines on each page? has anyone ever tried this?

That would be another possibility, but it’s likely that the file created would be large and unsuitable for sending over E-mail.

The potential for cheating depends on the quality of the scan. You could try sticking a strip of numbers on a page of lines, and hope that it doesn’t look too obvious on the final image. Also hope that the disciplinarian does not notice the similarity between the pages. It all sounds too risky to me and would likely result in a further, even more onerous imposition.

I enjoy giving lines when I am in my more dominant mode and I can see the value of them having hated having them at school 1964/69 on a number of occasions as a poor pupil who probaby deserved all she got.

Then I was made up to a prefect and gave them out myself. That really was fun. At my school the favoured way was to award the victim, usually some first or second former a page of the school dictionary, (which we all had to carry at all times,) to write out.

Later on when I went to teacher training college I continued to give out lines, most notably in one secondary modern school where I did a six week teaching practice. (Pity looking back I never carried on with my teaching career.)

I would suggest that any one who wants to punish a partner with lines gives them the task to write X number of times, “I must not. whatever.” stipulating, to be written a a sentence and then spervise the punishment.

That avoids the tendency of the punishee to write words in columns. Woe betide the pupil who does!

Another way to avoid columns-writing is to set a line which is simply too long to fit on a single line of the page. Or insist that odd-numbered lines are written in red, even-numbered in blue.

A particularly nasty punishment was recently suggested to me by a teacher friend. Take a sheet of graph paper – standard A4, with 2mm, 1cm and 2cm squares marked off.

Got one? Now colour it in. Every 1cm square is to be a solid block of colour, with no white showing through. Furthermore, you will alternate between blue and red, to create a chequered pattern of 1cm squares, 18 across and 28 down (standard dimensions for A4 graph paper).

I had a go for an hour using Papermate nylon tipped pens (thick felt tips are not allowed!). I think the completed task would be around four hours of utterly mindless tedium. And it can be checked for completion in an instant.

Shading in the 1cm squares is easy compared to what we had to do.

Our assistant headmistress used to give us one sheet of A4 graph paper and we had to write the figure “5” in every small square ie 100 in every Cm square.

This task was usually given at a weekend and would take 6 or 7 hours to complete.

It was the hardest and most tedious thing I have ever been given to do.

That sounds DIRE! Even I blanche at that one, and I LIKE this sort of thing!

I thought the point of the punishment was tedium, but that sounds more like punishing with eyestrain. Which, incidentally, is the reason my teacher friend insists on colouring of the 1cm rather than the 2mm squares.
