A place where you get sent when a teacher notices something bad or inappropriated. The best way to get one is to chew gum.
Kyle: Yo David. I just got a detention from Miss Hoffman for chewing gum. So I gave her the finger and got another one.

David: For real? I just chewed 36 pieces of gum in history class and didn't get a detention. I kickass.

Miss Hoffman: Who just said kickass?

David: I did.

Miss Hoffman: That's a detention.

Kyle: Haha. Sucks for you.
