'I can't wait to never see her again': Principal demands school teacher provide a doctor's note for 1 sick day despite being 17 days absent herself, teacher quits

'I can't wait to never see her again': Principal demands school teacher provide a doctor's note for 1 sick day despite being 17 days absent herself, teacher quits

Working as an educator is difficult. Rowdy kids, long hours, and meh pay all add to a common feeling of discontentment among teachers. They really aren't paid enough to deal with everything they're putting up with. One teacher described their experience with their new school principal who really had it out for them, for no apparent reason. It might be worth mentioning that the teacher works in special education, teaching kids who have learning disabilities… so it's sad that the principal's trea…

'The school doesn't have a problem with it, neither should you': Young mother told to stay out of kids' school park so a woman can use it for her dog instead, her son cries all the way home

'The school doesn't have a problem with it, neither should you': Young mother told to stay out of kids' school park so a woman can use it for her dog instead, her son cries all the way home

People who believe that they own public spaces should be fined. A pregnant lady lived near a school that had a perfect playground for her young son. However, the park was only open when school was out. So one Sunday afternoon, after school hours, she got dressed, packed her kid in her stroller, and began waddling to the park, thinking how much she would like to take a seat due to pregnancy pains. Looking forward to some rest, she got to the gate and went to open it when she noticed some coats s…

‘I won’t walk 3 miles, forget it': Teenager leaves brother stranded for 3 hours after his exam, pocketing the money their mother gave him to get home

‘I won’t walk 3 miles, forget it': Teenager leaves brother stranded for 3 hours after his exam, pocketing the money their mother gave him to get home

Being a teenager is bad enough when you don't have a sibling who thinks everyone should bow down to them. And on that note, this story is about sibling rivalry at its finest. One 15-year-old uploaded screenshots of a baffling conversation he had with his condescending sister who left him stranded for 3 hours at school after an exam he had. Apparently, their kindhearted mother had given his sister some money to use to get an Uber for him once he'd finished his exam. The money was meant for that,…

Math teacher forced to use flawed software, maliciously complies with the help of her students: 'She had an army of eighth graders [...] send thousands of emails to the CEO'

Math teacher forced to use flawed software, maliciously complies with the help of her students: 'She had an army of eighth graders [...] send thousands of emails to the CEO'

Teachers have to put up with more in one class than what most folks have to put up with in their entire careers. As the child of a teacher, I can attest that it's far more than lesson planning, class time, and grading. It's also dealing with bureaucratic nonsense, entitled parents, difficult kids, and strange administrative policies that make absolutely no sense. In the case of this story, we are primarily dealing with the lattermost scenario. Here, we have an eighth-grade math teacher who was…

'Try and sue us? Get fired instead': College students left in the cold get back at their absent landlord

Would you rather your house always be too cold , or too hot? Depending on the way your house is heated or cooled, you probably already know your answer. It's hard to get your home to the perfect temperature for everyone, since some people are always wrapping themselves in sweaters, while others are sweating it out. However, these college kids had to experience the worst-case scenario: having a freezing house for a whole winter, and being ignored the whole time. These poor college students just…

‘He lost his PhD because of me’: Employee gets boss's PhD revoked after getting fired for taking lead of the company

‘He lost his PhD because of me’: Employee gets boss's PhD revoked after getting fired for taking lead of the company

Don't mess with people if you don't have the means to back it up. One rich boss inherited a lot of money from his ancestors, which he slowly but surely dwindled away by making avoidable mistakes at work. He had a company, but he had no idea how to lead his employees, and even though most people went along with it, one employee didn't. This person, who we'll call OP, kept calling the boss out for his mistakes and took the lead so that the boss's decisions wouldn't lead to chaos. Well, you can im…

'My manager asks Karen exactly what she wants': Helicopter parent refuses to accept dorm roommates for her college-aged son

'My manager asks Karen exactly what she wants': Helicopter parent refuses to accept dorm roommates for her college-aged son

Being a helicopter parent to a toddler is one thing, but if your kid grows up and you're still acting that way, it's going to get awkward real fast. When you're raising a toddler, it makes sense to keep a close eye on them. They're whirling dervishes of destruction who can color your couch with markers one minute and climb inside the dishwasher the next. But over time, you've got to let your kids gain independence by seeing the world on their own. Too bad no one ever told this college kid's mot…

Entitled Karen blocks dude's driveway during school pickup, he blocks her right back: 'Ma'am I live here and I'd like to get into my garage'

This lady was asking for trouble. She was picking up her kid from school and decided to park on a neighbor's driveway. Now according to the neighbor, who shared this thread on the r/pettyrevenge subreddit, it is quite common for parents to back into his driveway during pickup as it can get especially crowded at that time. He is normally ok with this, as it seems to come with the territory of living across the street from a school. However, this time, the Original Poster was on his way home when…

Boarding school enforces 33% increased price structure, students rebel via malicious compliance: 'There was an uproar'

Boarding school enforces 33% increased price structure, students rebel via malicious compliance: 'There was an uproar'

What was this school's administration thinking? Not only did they decide to suddenly and without warning increase the weekly rates for its boarding students, but when they finally informed the student population, they fully lied about how big the increase actually was. Clearly, these board members could not do math on their own or they wildly underestimated the strengths of their largely STEM-oriented students. These folks were quick to calculate that the weekly price increase was not 2% as the…

‘While you're under my roof, you'll do what I say': College student lands herself a curfew after waking up sister's crying newborn, family picks sides, leaving college student to whine alone

Ah, to be a teenager and resist house rules… we've all been there. One college student named Mia moved in with her sister after attending a university that was closer to where she lived. Mia was allowed to live with her sister under one condition… don't mess with the baby's bedtime. She could come home as late as she wanted, as long as she didn't make any noise. Alas, Mia was young, inconsiderate, and entitled, leading to a big family dispute. She would go out partying, and come home, make a to…

'The mullet is totally coming back': 25+ worst pieces of advice that former high school students regret taking

People love giving unsolicited advice to high school students, even if that advice is unfounded, misguided, and totally unproductive. For instance, the concept that these four years will determine how you end up spending the rest of your life is not only incredibly false but also potentially damaging to a teenager. Most of these nuggets of so-called “advice” likely stem from adults who have complex relationships with their own high school experiences. Perhaps they regret their approach to their…

The roommate who has been driven to the point of no return is described in the story below. The original poster (OP) is a student who shares an apartment with multiple other people.

Top 25+ Exam Mistakes From Immature Students Who Didn’t Study

Top 25+ Exam Mistakes From Immature Students Who Didn’t Study

Sometimes, there is no point in pretending you know the answer on a test. Perhaps you didn't study or perhaps you're just drawing a blank. For whatever reason, you have absolutely no idea what to say and you can't even venture an educated guess. At this point, you know you're not getting any points on this question (and maybe even on the whole test). So, what does one do in this situation? Do you leave the question blank? Do you waste time trying to fabricate an educated guess despite the fact…
