The principal of the school asked everyone to be 30 min early for the exam. 30 or so hours of overtime were paid, and she had to monitor students herself.

'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…

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…

'Wait your turn': Karen demands random student help her with her shopping, teacher puts Karen in her place

'Wait your turn': Karen accosts ex-employee and demands they help her with her shopping, teacher puts Karen in her place

It's often said that we should seek to better the world by helping those around us, but what if those people needing help are demanding help and being incredibly rude about it? Better to let the world burn if that's how it's going to be. There's no shortage of entitled people who have a 6th sense for the goodwill of others and look to latch onto that goodwill-doer like a leech and absorb all of the goodwill that is to be had. This student was helping a retired teacher from their school when the…

Artists: Did you ever have a bad art-school critique that really set you back, knocked you off your pins? What was it? Keep it short; don't exaggerate. Often, it can be the least thing. Have you ever made a "revenge" work of art? What was it?

'I...was told “oh but you know only people with talent get in right…?"': 30+ Artists share the harshest critiques they've ever heard

Everyone's a critic, including the very teachers who are supposed to guide students along their path to success. When senior art critic Jerry Saltz asked artists to dish on their worst art advice from teachers, he got some incredible responses. He posed the question in a tweet, asking, "Artists: Did you ever have a bad art-school critique that really set you back, knocked you off your pins? What was it? Keep it short; don't exaggerate. Often, it can be the least thing. Have you ever made a “rev…

'To this day, I still have no idea why the teacher treated me this way': Cunning teen claims to get teacher fired with her own words

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. He basically had a teacher who would constantly put him down, including with some horrific insults that are just straight-up bullying. So he decided to get back at her using her own words, and it turned into an absolute s***show for the teacher , Ms. Frank. Check ou…

Professor says research paper isn't long enough, so student gets one published to a history journal

There are times in our lives when we face the challenge of someone who holds authority over us. This challenge may not be totally fair — or even sensical — but it necessitates a response all the same. We then have a choice at that point, do we rise to the challenge? Or find another path? This student decided to rise to their professor's challenge when they were told that their paper wasn't long enough, despite being within the required length range. When the time for the next paper rolled aroun…
