'Most of us simply ignored her...But a dozen of us decided to comply': Principal ignores teacher's schedule, ruins her own Friday

School testing is an important part of a student's year, and these tests have to be administered with exact time measurements. This teacher shared their experience with this on r/MaliciousCompliance – they got to talk to their boss in a way that most people only dream of! As u/Djorgal shared, they work part time as a math teacher in France. Since they only work part-time, they kept telling their principal that they wouldn't be able to cover the entirety of the student's upcoming tests. With the…

What's a rule that was implemented somewhere, that massively backfired?

'They removed the trash cans... The amount of litter skyrocketed overnight': 30+ Real-world examples of new rules that backfired hard

'What's a rule that was implemented somewhere, that massively backfired?' The question was posed to the r/AskReddit community, and they really delivered with some outrageous tales !

Want to put my kid in detention for farting. You can pay for the cost of getting him home

Terrible Teacher Gives Gaseous Teen Detention, Mother Goes to Principal and Makes Her Pay, Literally

Sometimes people need a little bit of monetary consequence to let them know that their actions have been bad; it's the only stimulus that a lot of entitled, narcissistic, or power-tripping people will respond to. And, while I can't agree with the notion that a teacher should normally have to pay for punishing their student's poor behavior, in this instance, it's clear that this teacher was just abusing their power and really mistreating and harassing this poor student. It's incredibly dishearte…

As commenters have suggested, if he had merely approached the conversation as if it was an old inside joke rather than something that he was harboring deep resentment over, he could have won his old classmates over and finally been rid of his demons in one swift stroke. Instead, the monkey's paw has curled—and the prophecy comes to pass. He is now, and forever wi…

Think of your worst teacher ever, and imagine the satisfaction of getting them fired. Well, this kid lived out everyone's dream, as he shared in a popular post that garnered plenty of praise for him and condemnation for his teacher.
