If your parents got mad because you got detention, just tell them that the detention slip may be worth a lot of money one day once you're famous.
That's what happend to John Lennon. School detention sheets detailing the Beatles singer's childhood misdeeds will go up for auction in late November.
The two detention sheets were from 1955 when Lennon was a 15-year-old teenager at Liverpool's Quarry Bank high school. Lennon's naughtiness include "fighting in class", "talking", "shouting", "chewing," "shoving", "having 'just no interest whatsoever,'" "silliness" and, most interestingly, "sabotage." On one occasion, Lennon got three detentions in a single day.
The sheets were supposed to be destroyed, but an eagle-eyed teacher saw the name "Lennon," written on them, and decided to save them for safekeeping. They're expected to sell up to £3,000 (US$4,800) each in late November auction at TracksAuction.
