Times People Realized They Were The Jerk

There are times when we make assumptions or statements without realizing the full scope of the situation, and we end up paying for it. Sometimes that realization happens right away and other times it takes a little while. There are also times when we straight up know we're doing some unsavory business while we're doing it.  There are just some regret-filled times when people realize they're the bad guy.

Times Students' Parents Obviously Did Their Work

Sometimes people think it's the students that ae the most challenging part of a teacher's job. That's only true most of the time. It can actually be the parents trying to interfere too much with their kid's education. Sometimes a teacher can just look at a finished project and go, "looks like dad did a great job." Sometimes it goes the other way. Sometimes teachers have no faith in students but they succeed anyway, like this student who won an art contest to spite their rude teacher.
