The Paddle Was The Rule Of Law

I went to a school in a very very small rural school district. When you got in trouble there was no detention or iss, just the paddle. I was paddled many times during my younger school years, but it wasn't until high school that they really made them hurt. Our butch female coach would paddle the girls and boy could she do a good job. She paddled me probably about 15 times over the course of my high school years. The worst one I ever got I'll never forget because it hurt for about 3 hours and did leave pretty good bruises. I was given six slow drawn out very hard licks. I don't know if that kind of crap is even still legal. I went to high school in the 90's and a lot of people can't hardly believe that kind of thing was even still going on. I can say though that I am in no way damaged from it and at the time I think the practice actually worked well in that small school.

Sounds like, you got the Board of education applied on the Seat of understanding.

I can remember being in school when paddling was really common.....some of the girls where really scared of the paddle.

I went to high school in the 60's and paddling was pretty much a thing of the past. But it was legal, and if a teacher sent you to the principal, and decided on paddling, you got sent to the swim coach. He paddled with enthusiasm, and took pride in his "blisterings". Never got one, it was rare, but we were all in fear of his paddle.

Interesting story can't even imagine that but I know it happens.

Did boys get paddled in your school too and did you ever see a guy get his butt busted in school? Did you ever get spanked at home and did you have siblings that were paddled or spanked in school or at home?

Was it the same witness all the time or just depended?<br />
Did she paddle the previous captain like she did you? <br />
Where did she keep her paddle? <br />
Would you let her paddle you now if possible?

Was the office sending you to get paddled by her? Or did you get in trouble with her too? <br />
Did she ever joke about how she paddled you afterwards? Not right away but like oh, you don't want to get paddled by me....type of thing?

No, the principal wouldn't paddle girls at all. Now some class room teacher's did there own paddling. But, most of the teachers were women, and they knew coach would do a much better job than they could. But, if you were sent to the office, the principal would take you down to the coaches office to get your licks. Only girls though were not paddled by the principal.

Yes, my coach would always embarrass me especially in front of my ball team. She would have to remind everyone on the team how hard she busted my *** that day.

And yes, me and my best friend often got in trouble in her pe class or the ball field. She would run us till we puked, and sometimes she would give us licks in front of the whole team.

Did you and the female coach have a unique bond because of the amount of times she paddled you? <br />
Did the coach get a witness?

She also coached my softball team, so we were close anyways. I lead in home runs and was team captain. So that meant she was extra hard on me. I knew for a fact she would use force on me than some of the other girls. She held her ball players to a higher standard.

Yes, there always had to be a witness. And when it was over you always had to sign a paper stating how many licks you got, what it was for, and that's really all that happened. The witness had to sign too.

What position did you get paddled in?<br />
Did you cry? <br />
Did you get paddled more or less than the other girls?

When you were going to be paddled, you were to bend over with your feet about a foot apart and both hands on the desk for support. I never cried at school because what I was used to getting at home was ten times worse. I was mouthy and obnoxious so I got it a lot. But, there were a couple other girls who also got it just as often as I did.

Never bare I assume was always over gym shorts?
