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.

Weird and Wild Things Kids Did At School

When you get a few hundred to a thousand developing adults into one building and try to get them to follow rules for 7 hours a day, you are setting up a recipe for weirdness. Some kids wanted attention. Other kids (most of us) were trying not to be cringeworthy and failed. Other kids (also most of us) were just bored. We all remember a day at school, trying to get through some drab math exercises when another kid would lean over and say "dude, did you hear about what Jeremy did?" And what an interesting time we'd all have recounting Jeremy's shenanigans. It's not just the kids, sometimes teachers say weird and wild junk too.

Entitled Classmate Gets Raw Potatoes for Snack Day

It's a whole lot presumptuous for this classmate to insist on a whole new snack day inspired by this person's free donuts, but they seemed to have gotten the picture. For another funny story of someone refusing to be bullied about donuts, here's a new employee who is not having free donut day.

Tumblr Story: Teacher Underestimates Students in Social Experiment

And with that, maybe there's evidence the world won't completely slip into utter chaos. Sure, the strangeness of students can result in some weird and stupid school stories, but that doesn't mean students are necessarily complete animals all the time. Sometimes it can be teachers who say weird and wild junk.

Student's Roommate Refuses To Clean Up, Student Child Proofs Kitchen Cupboards

Many of us have had our unfortunate encounters with an inconsiderate, immature, and grossly entitled roommate at one point or another. It's as if they fell through the cracks when it came to picking up the necessary tidbits of knowledge from the rest of society about how to be a socially, environmentally conscious roommate. It seems like this student's decision was fair enough considering the circumstances, and the fact that the dude seemed as if he wasn't going to change his ways. Check out some more roommate drama with this guy who outwitted his roommate using the Pavlovian Method

Professor Insists On Lengthy Essay Being On One Page, Students Comply

Well, that professor got exactly what they asked for. Sometimes, as a student you encounter a teacher who seems to carry on in such a way that indicates they're the one who ultimately needs to be schooled. Fortunately, these students had their wits about them, and happily, maliciously complied. Can't imagine that the teacher was too stoked about the outcome.

Teacher Given Pink Slip, Chooses Least Qualified Students for School Project

School drama can be strange. While it's probably not advisable to use the mediocre work of students to get back at faculty, this teacher played it cool in an unfair situation. That said, teachers often totally misjudge their students, like these students in this social experiment. In a twist on teacher/student expectations, here's a student who won an art contest to spite their rude teacher.

We've got our fair share of excuses that were clearly blatant lies, and then we've got the brutal, unexpected reasons that kids didn't turn in assignments that were just crazy enough to be actual truths.

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.

Teachers' "That's Amazing But Please Stop" Stories

Students are curious and motivated individuals especially when it comes to breaking the rules or mocking each other. They'll go to impressive lengths in order to tastefully vandalize restrooms or expertly cheat the system. You can't tell them it's the right thing to do, but it's at least impressive. To give the kids some credit, here's a Tumblr thread on a teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment.
