Is this an idiom or something? June 26, 2013 11:44 PM   Subscribe

In a film,a teacher says to a student who is going to fight with a classmate. "Tidd! You take one more step and you'll think you were born in detention. Get back to your seat." What does "born in detention" mean? I googled it and I only found some articles like,"Uncertain future awaits babies born in detention.." So is this a sort of exaggerated expression of "being detained"?

Hey, there. This doesn't seem to be Metafilter-related (something about the site itself), so you can go ahead and post this at Ask Metafilter to get answers. Closing this up now, let me know if you have any questions.
