'A guy wrote "Superman" as his answer on all 10 questions': 30 Ridiculous school assignments that students actually turned in

These teachers were baffled by the papers they received from their students. A lot of kids really don't want to go to school. They don't want to wake up at the crack of dawn, don't want to sit still in class all day, and they certainly aren't keen to work on homework. Luckily, there are plenty of brilliant teachers who can motivate their students to want to be there. Some teachers try to make their lessons modern by implementing movies, while others can make any lesson interesting with their ex…

Teacher Gets Epic Payback on Group of Slackers During Senior Ditch Day

Teacher Gets Epic Payback on Group of Slackers During Senior Ditch Day

This epic mode of payback has people divided over whether or not this teacher is a brilliant mastermind or entirely out-of-line. Truth be told, it's a very tough call. On the one hand, we love when students who think they can get away with manipulating their teachers get their well-deserved comeuppance. On the other, it's clear from this teacher's first-person account of the whole debacle that they got a lot of joy out of radically affecting the future of these kids, particularly when it came t…

‘[We went] to the museum of work’: 15+ Bizarre School Field Trip Fails

Field trips almost never go as planned. There is always some unexpected mishap, be it big or small, that gets in the way of the event and often makes our teachers extremely annoyed. Sometimes, it's their fault too. I mean, who in their right minds would think a group of 12-year-olds would enjoy a trip to the museum of work to learn about the joys of the eight hour work day? And who in their right minds would think that a camping trip in November in frigid Canada would be a good idea? As someone…

'Your mic is still on': Teacher roasted for gossiping about a coworker to a student, everyone overhears

This teacher took to the internet for sympathy after talking about a coworker behind his back with their microphone still on, but she failed to mention that the person with whom she was gossiping was a literal child. Let's take a moment to break down the various levels of unprofessionalism that are embedded in this story. First, there's talking smack about coworkers. Look, this behavior is unfortunately inevitable in many workplaces, but if you're going to do it, you should speak privately with…

Internet debates if using 'stage directions in asterisks' is professional or not

'Why is my teacher role playing with me in a formal email?': Internet debates if using 'stage directions in asterisks' is professional or cringe

The internet is always up in arms about some silly nonsense *shrugs ambivalently*. There are obviously many serious and big issues going on in the world, and it's nice to take a break from those important things to ponder the silliest and tiniest debates going on. This debate was flagged by a subreddit just for drama in the comments section, aptly named r/subredditdrama. The drama du jour was started after u/Justthisdudeyaknow posted a Tumblr meme from 2020. In the post, a student is surprised…

‘I can’t do my job like this': Teacher shares declining interest in job due to students phone usage, leading to discussion about teaching

‘I can’t do my job like this': Teacher shares declining interest in job due to students phone usage, leading to discussion about teaching

I can't begin to imagine what it's like to teach nowadays. I witness kids' behavior in public and it already infuriates me. I can't fathom what it's like to teach them. Here, let me tell you a story. One day, I was ordering a hamburger at a place, and in the line before me was a tired, worn-out dad, and his obnoxious child with their eyes glued to the phone. The dad had to repeat, 'What would you like to eat' about ten times before the kid stopped ignoring him and mumble-replied. Then the kid b…

'[It] made us look absolutely hilarious': High school kids get back at teacher who's obsessed with cold-weather running

No one is more sarcastic than a determined teenager. It's like they have a special knack for it. And since their teachers spend hours with them each week, they're bound to be on the receiving end of that sarcastic sense of humor now and again.

‘You’ve made your bed so lie in it’: Art student gets even with teacher after being picked on for 6 months, her entire class gets rearranged

There will always be those who believe we are gifted and capable of achieving success in life, and there will always be others who think we will never amount to anything worthwhile. The secret to success is to never give up and to never allow someone to bring you down. The story that follows is from a frustrated student. OP has been studying to teach art. As part of his training, he must work as an assistant to a senior faculty art teacher for six months. Although OP was ecstatic to have the op…

‘You are not university material’: Student gets back at guidance counselor who told her she wasn’t smart enough to get into college

It should come as no surprise that the comments teachers make can haunt you forever. Sure, there are the words of encouragement that can empower you to pursue a particular path, but there are also the subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle insults that can damage someone’s self-esteem. The only positive outcome that can arise from dealing with these unfortunate comments is if they become a motivator for you as you continue to do what you want and be who you are despite what a silly authority figure…

‘Actually, I don’t need your permission': Student gets back at principal who gives classmates demerit points based on dress code

‘Actually, I don’t need your permission': Student gets back at principal who gives classmates demerit points based on dress code

One student became furious when her school principal gave one of her friends demerit points for 'dress code violations'. The most annoying part was that even though she was wearing the same thing as her friend, she didn't get told off. In a sense, this student was upset that they hadn't been punished. That's some real loyalty right there! The issue was bigger than that, though. This principal would only give certain girls in the school dress code violations. Unfortunately, this was a recurring…

'I am, in fact, a customer': University student calls out their professor for providing "bad service" after receiving an unfair grade

While it's probably a controversial take, the argument stands with strong reason: If you're a landlord or a professor or in any other position where someone is paying you for something you're providing them… you're providing a service, and the person paying you is entitled to good service. Far too many of these "service providers" not only regard this as unnecessary but also regard themselves as above the person paying them and use this to placate their nagging conscience. Who hasn't had a land…

'Want the files in a USB? Okay': Boss insists teacher hands in her reports using a USB, she maliciously complies

Every employer has a particular way of doing things, but sometimes their rationale is so illogical that complying becomes nearly impossible. This can be especially true if their methods are only beneficial to them and no one else. To make matters worse, when bosses tend to do this, they also tend to mask their selfish needs as something beneficial to everyone, but little do they know, we all can see right through that nonsense. This teacher was pressured by the head of their department to deliv…

'I knew they would definitely fail': Substitute teacher gets back at cheating students by making an uncheatable test

The shenanigans our classmates orchestrated under the supervision of unfortunately unaware substitute teachers are something that we're likely to remember many years afterward. It's one of those things that are such a universal experience that long ago worked its way from real life over into becoming a trope in popular culture. The greatest example I had of this was in 8th grade when my Advanced Geometry teacher had a few weeks off work, and we, of course, were to be taught instead by a substit…

‘You don’t get any credit': Student presents project to entire school, making sure classmate doesn't get any credit, leading to classmate getting removed from school program

Every kid wants to do well in school without actually putting in the hard work, or maybe that's just me. I wasn't the brightest crayon in the box, nor did I put in the work and effort to get good grades, and looking back, I can see how annoying that must have been for the other students, especially when I was involved in a group project. Those were the absolute worst… One student got really petty after one of his classmates tried to take partial credit in a joint project after not doing a singl…
