What would you do if you were caught in class using your cell phone? Chances are you would try to bargain with the teacher in order to keep your trusty device in your pocket before it gets confiscated and you can’t have it for the rest of the day.
Well, a few students in China got caught using their phones during a self-study session and they decided the best plan of action was to smash their phones.
They offered to do so to their teacher, and the teacher happily watched the madness.
From the Daily Mail:
The incident took place at The No. 2 Middle School of Dao County in Yongzhou, southern China’s Hunan Province, on September 5. The two teenagers, He and Liao, were said to have been caught using the phones during a self-studying session on the night of September 4. After their phones were confiscated by a teacher named Xiong, they found the teacher and offered to smash their phone in the classroom to show their resolution to study harder, the Dao County Education Bureau said in a statement.

The students were also humiliated before they destroyed their phones, being forced to read the harm of students using their phones to their classmates.
Unfortunately for Professor Xiong, the school headmaster says the way they dealt with it was “inappropriate.” As a result, Xiong was deducted his bonus salary and the kids were without their cell phones. It’s a tough life.
