Since the new school year started, I’ve noticed that a lot of people have been skipping class in the bathroom to hang out with their friends and look at their phones. Usually I don’t really care, people can do what they want I guess but this year every time I go to the bathroom during class, there's always someone standing in one of the bathroom stalls doing nothing. There's honestly no good thing about skipping class (unless you're obsessed with your phone). It’s annoying for the people innocently trying to use the bathroom, and has a negative impact on the people skipping.
There are so many reasons why you shouldn’t skip class. One of them is that it’s just annoying. When people skip class, they just stand in the bathroom stalls. When there’s actually someone that needs to go to the bathroom, they’re unable to go because they are just taking up the good stalls. When they hide out in the bathroom stalls, they are always really loud. They giggle and laugh with their friends while looking at their phones together. When kids are in the bathroom stalls and taking them up, when someone goes to the stall next to them, it makes them feel unsafe. They also always take up the only stall that actually locks/has toilet paper. We all know that basically every bathroom in the school has some faulty stalls, but the people skipping always end up using the one stall that actually works. This means that if you just have to use the bathroom quickly, you end up with a stall that either doesn’t lock or doesn’t have toilet paper. There's been so many times where I end up just not using the bathroom and leaving because of this.
Honestly if you skip class regularly what are you doing? You’re just hurting yourself. You could be missing an important lesson or assignment and wouldn’t know until it’s due. Your grades will drop, affecting your chances of getting into good high schools and colleges. You could develop anxiety if you skip regularly because of the constant stress that you miss something important. I know since we’re only in middle school people think skipping class won’t have a big effect on them but in reality it does. You may think it’s now that big of a deal, but continuously skipping class can take a toll on your academic performance. This will in turn lower your grade, and affect your life in the future.
With this in mind, you can clearly see many valid reasons why you should stop skipping class. It’s annoying for the people literally just trying to use the bathroom, and has a negative impact on the people skipping. Also if you think skipping class is cool it’s really not. This whole essay sums up why you shouldn’t skip class.
