Teachers Who Pulled Total Bro Moves

Our academic lives were needlessly fraught with tyrannical, despotic excuses for educators who taught us more about fear than we ever learned about math. That's why it's important to remember that some of them are thoughtful people who care about what they do, like this teacher with a great dihydrogen monoxide lesson or this teacher who fought the power using gummy bears.

Things People Accidentally Trained Their Pets to Do

Pavlovian conditioning can be a powerful thing. Just by sheer association, pets can learn very specific things, like how this smart dog learned the dinner criteria. Some pets take it a step further, like this dog who figured out how to herd a lawn roomba. Pets can learn a lot of very specific things. Usually it has to do with treats.

Frustrated Tutor Gives Wrong Answers to Lazy Student

School can be hard and regrettably expensive. Seeing your classmates not take anything seriously and still pass can be frustrating when you value your education, like this entitled college slacker who demanded their classmates notes and got denied. Also, if they're trying to be something like a doctor, you'd hope they actually study and know their field. This tutor got so frustrated with a ridiculously lazy student that he went and gave him some answers. Not the right answers, just some answers. Other teachers have wily ways of outsmarting cheaters, like this old professor.

Teachers Share Their Worst Parent-Teacher Conferences

The life of a teacher is pretty wild. Teachers can see some incredibly dumb kids. Sometimes a good teacher will do a kid a solid. Teaching can be funny and full of chaos. Sometimes parents have a very limited idea of what a teacher's job actually is, and take any criticism of their child personally. These are some of those times parent-teacher conferences were a little wild.
