    Isn't that an incredible waste of time and resources? Why wouldn't we try and find a job or something they enjoy doing and help them learn that? Maybe that's what they're doing but I doubt it.

    We had a downy in wood shop class. The teacher owned an apple orchard as well and would sell apples and cider to students on the side. One day the kid was asking what cider tasted like and we told him it was great but you had to drink a half gallon at a time. He downed the whole jug and spent the rest of the day in the bathroom with the shots. Comes in the next day and does the same thing. Shop teacher cut him off after that.

    Yes, the worst part of this story is, in fact, that they put the kid in shop class. Miracle he still has his fingers

    This is by far one of the funniest threads on this site. My stories aren't really that funny but I did grow up with a special needs kid. Jonathan is a great guy and has a mild form downs which led to some humorous situations. I went to school with him growing up and he also went to my church. I guess the common theme for him was he didn't give a damn. He would grab girls asses giggle and run off. He would also sing loud and deep in church like he was an oprea singer. You could easily pick his voice out if you were sitting within 50 feet of him. He also had terrible timing so he would hold notes too long through the pauses and make everyone giggle (we were like 12). He also loved basketball (he was terrible) and his go to shot was the wilt skyhook. I guess the most memorable story was when he shit his pants in second grade walking to the cafeteria. Once again he didn't give a fuck that shit was dripping off his pants he just kept walking, determined to get those chicken nuggets even though he was leaving a trail for 100 yards. Most of my memories from elementary school are pretty hazy but I will never forget the exact spot we were in (right in front of the art room door), what he was wearing (black velcro tennis shoes, blue jeans and a navy turtleneck) and the WTF look on his face when the teacher told him he had to go to the office and get cleaned up instead of getting his chicken nuggets. We had to walk in a line and the majority of the class was dodging his shit trail and the teacher finally discovered something was up. I really did liked the kid because you will never meet a sweeter human being. Somehow he got my cell phone number and still calls me from time to time. That kid can always bring a smile to my face. I am upset that I didn't appreciate him more when I was younger and got to interact with him regularly.

    I was lifeguard at a camp way back when

    A state representative's son was allowed to go for his swimming tag to have access to the waterfront

    This little smug prick was about 1/16th way through the swim and went for his best titanic impersonation

    I jumped in and attempted a textbook rescue and this little prick about drowned us both trying to fight me off with his super retard strength

    I'm pretty sure I ended up dragging him out by his hair

    Mr state representative wanted me to let him try again because his son got scared and I said take a hike

    Momdukes taught Special Ed growing up. I could fill a book with stories....

    One guy was a good buddy of mine named Orlando. Mom taught him in first grade and he was always pretty slow mentally. He somehow made grades to come out for ball though, and he was a helluva running back. Mom took us to the KofC pool after practice once and me and him were in the deep end checking out chicks sunbathing. They'd lay down on their stomachs and I was showing Orlando how you could see some side-titty if you looked just right. I got out to get a Coke and he comes with me and I turn around and his dick had managed to come out of the front of his shorts. Fucker had to be 12" long and he was ready to roll. I pushed him back into the pool, but a lot of people saw it. He just laughed, never had any idea what happened.

    We always took one girl named Amy home, and one day she kept complaining in the van about how bad she had to go to the bathroom. We get to her house and start up the sidewalk and she yanks her shorts and drawls down to her ankles and starts waddling/hopping/stumbling to the front door. She made it to the bathroom, but the weird part was no one said a word, like it was some normal deal. I couldn't quit laughing so I wound up getting in trouble.

    Had another one named Jason who would try to do absolutely ANYthing that anyone else did. I had a friend who could run up on a tree trunk and flip himself completely backwards. Ole Jason gave it a whirl, made it halfway and lawnchaired himself. The sound of him getting the wind knocked out of him and the aftermath remains one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed. He once wanted to play basketball with us once so we let him, and he kept wanting to be skins. Fine Jason, we'll be skins.. He takes off his shirt and he'd drawn about 10 circles, getting sequentially larger around his nipples with a blue pen. We were in cafeteria once and a fight broke out and Jason jumps on a table to get a better look, and takes a header from a ceiling fan that had to have been running at about 5000rpm. Damn thing hadn't been cleaned in years and dust went every-fucking where. Split his head wide open. I got asked to leave my 5th period class because I couldn't make myself stop laughing.

    People are people, and funny stories are funny stories, but they were literally the most loyal, honest people you'd ever want to be around.

    While I wasn't in Horticulture III with you, I have heard this story from at least 5 different people who were in that class. I must say, old friend, you tell it the best.

    Might be my favorite post in TMB history.

    Fantastic thread. Reading this made sitting with my pops doing chemo much more enjoyable.

    Had this one tard in HS who thought whenever he shook hands, it means he had sex so he would refuse to shake hands with any of the guys at school and would chase girls around trying to get a handshake. He would make orgasm sounds when he shook a girls hand and because he didn't have Tim Tebow-esque tard strength and was harmless the girls played along. At the end of the day he'd always rattle off a long list of girls with whom he had sex with that day.

    I once got asked out by a downie, named Melanie, via love letter in the middle of PE Sr. year.

    She handed it to me and stared at me while I read it while hanging with my football teammates all down'd up and doe eyed. Then my teammate took it from my hand and showed everyone while dying laughing. Melanie ran away mortified.

    i ended up getting yelled at for this, getting called an asshole jock, and having no heart.

    Yeah, the guy who is nice enough to the ese kids that one misconstrued it for romantic feelings is an asshole, meanwhile you encouraging this girl to do this on the middle of PE in front of all my teammates? GTFO you shitty handler.

    Every now and then her face will flash in my head while I'm jerking off. Sometimes I wish I had fucked her just to see what it'd be like....
