Behavior Card Day is the name of a school day where someone (usually the teacher), passes out color coded cards to others in a group, normally in a grounded video. However, grounding scenes are not always present. These videos usually take place in school, where the teacher hands the cards out to students/characters. Behavior cards come in a wide variety of colors and consequences (reward, neutral and disciplinary card colors vary by user). Usually the troublemaker may get in dead meat, due to behavior. The phrase "dead meat" is a term in itself, meaning to have a student permanently expelled from that particular school.

Dead meat card and underworld card

If the card is a dead meat one, the color of it may usually be black or sometimes red. It means the one who received this card (usually that troublemaker), is permanently expelled from school, usually by a loud scold done by a teacher. Most of the time, the troublemaker may ask for another chance upon receiving the card, which is usually met by a shout of "ABSOLUTELY NOT!" followed by the expulsion scolding. After that, the troublemaker goes to the principal's office and gets expelled. After that, the principal phones the troublemaker's parents, which will always see the troublemaker(s) get grounded and punished by the parents. the underworld card: if the card is the underworld card, they will be sent to the underworld and never see the teacher again!

  • Homework passes are the only rewards given out in real-life, if students worked hard.
