Jimmy Youngblut bravely uses his phone in the middle of class, despite the threat of confiscation.

The rebel

The final method that is utilized for a momentary phone check is one that is only even attempted by the scruffy scoundrels that exhibit an air of stealth and vigilance. They don’t use a laptop, human shield, or disgraceful posture. No, these daring few simply whip out their phones for the world to see. It’s a gambit. A play on the student’s likability throughout the room up against the tenacity and ferocity of the class itself. It’s bold, dramatic, heroic, and, sadly, rarely ever attempted. If someone wants to make the statement “I don’t care about the rules,” “the law doesn’t apply to me,” or “rules are made to be broken,” this is the way they do it: in plain sight, playing Tetris while everyone silently holds their breath. Caution: this is not for the faint of heart, these people mean business.
