Cheating Student Thinks They Have Professor Fooled, Learn Otherwise

Honestly, these students got off lightly. Things could've ended up much, much worse than they did for them. This definitely isn't the first time that we've come across a revenge that took place within the realm of education. There's just something about people not wanting to do their tests/essays/etc that results in acts of truly glorious revenge.

Well, the teacher in this scenario sounds like she was way outside the line. Fortunately, the student's mom was ready to unleash a righteous revenge.

Twitter Thread: Guy Assumes Classmate's Stealing His Seat, Learns Otherwise

Someone's chopping up some onions in here, man. I swear. These aren't tears from sadness. Just a simple biological response to some fresh cut onions for an afternoon omelette. That's all. Alright, seriously though, this story from Twitter user @thomas___mcfall is making the rounds again, and it serves as quite the powerful example of the importance of not making assumptions about people that you don't know. In this case, the setting is a classroom, and the characters involved are a couple classmates from different corners of the world. One classmate mistakes another classmate's completely genuine niceties for selfishness/insensitivity. It turns out that he couldn't have been more wrong. 

Guy assumes that his classmate's stealing his seat every day, but he learns otherwise.

Teacher Uses Gummy Bears To Retaliate Against The System

Let this be a lesson to all of us that the power of gummy bears should absolutely never be underestimated. Gummy bears can motivate someone to dig deeper than they otherwise would never will themselves to go. Good for the teacher for using something that they already had to improve a situation from the unwanted place that it otherwise was stuck in.

The only logical next step is to write a note back to the classmate that wrote him this one, and say "not much, you?" But, just make sure that they have to wait at least 10 years before reading that.

Student Corrects Teacher, Teacher Can't Handle It

While it is a teacher's responsibility to know things, they're still human and are capable of getting those things wrong. It's when a teacher says something wrong and doesn't own up to it when things get weird. What's the value in lying to kids just so that you can maintain a false sense of authority? Sometimes teachers don't give their students enough credit, like this tumblr thread about a teacher underestimating their students for a social experiment. With the veritable weirdness some educators display, luckily there are also teachers who pulled total bro moves.
