    in today's world, the kids will go home and sulk and pout and grovel and roll around on the floor in front of their parents..

    the parents will complain to the school

    and the school will change you in a jiffy!

    the locker was also in a relatively warm place as it got to bathe in the sun.

    i think when he opened it he had the best smelling lemon beer ever, there was a whiff of lemon and alcohol floating in the air.

    i don't know what happened after that, but i think the story was that he drank it all and enjoyed it. he's still alive.

    it is more to do with cleanliness, i think.. like you say.

    that would be a better rationale i guess, something that makes more sense than disrespect. after all, a drink is a drink is a drink. does not matter if it is plain water or green tea.

    that said, i think food is a no no. i used to get distracted in class when the guy next to me would eat chicken wings. suddenly whatever the teacher was talking about made no sense and my mind would be filled with food.

    TS info is good for the students too. If the school has teached the students that prolong storage of uncapped drinks is bad and should the student insisted of doing so, it means the students are at fault.

    Besides bringing soft/can drinks into class and consumed there is not correct to begin with. So pour them into their own water canister instead. These issue have been evolved and resolved 30years ago in primarily school, are the new generation people becoming ancient again. I think so.

    Another possibility, the school or institute is planning to do secret project that involves using lots of bottle caps. Thus take this opportunity to collect them.

    Here is an extremely complex technique call caps collection. Now follow the steps very carefully students, with the assumption that it is pet bottle and not glass bottle.

    1) Buy the bottle drink of your liking from supermarket etc.
    2) Consume the drink and keep the cap.
    3) You will have to buy a couple of brands so that the logo will be the same.
    4) After you have purchased the bottled drink from the canteen, take your spare identical cap, wash it (remember germs germs) and close it.
    5) Oh, you can always leave the supermarket sticker on the cap to show that it is purchased outside the compound, thus not subjected to restriction.

    My experience keeping 1.5l green tea back when I was in army turned out totally different. Must be something to do with the bottle cap or timing. I will definitely try it again.

    Not a very fair comparison isn't it? In a F&B establishment, there are waiters and cleaners to keep the place clean by clearing tables, etc. In a school, the cleaners keep the common areas like corridors, canteen and toilets clean while the students are expected to keep their own classroom clean. The way I see it, the rule was probably started because some previous batch of student failed to do so.

    One example from the F&B establishment. Sakura at Punggol Marina. the staff at the drink counter will open all can drinks that you had ordered which i dislike..because...
    1) hygiene issue: i don't know if their hand are cleaned.
    2) they don't serve your drinks to your table.. you have to self service..what if the customer accidentally trip and fall.. all the can drinks will be gone..

    i wonder whats their reason for doing this..? keep the ants away?
