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…

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…

My teacher cut the tube for my insulin pump because we couldn’t have headphones in class

Deranged teacher takes 'No Headphones' too far, cuts diabetic kid's insulin pump tube

Wherever there is something that someone could possibly do in this world, there is someone out there taking it way too far. This is a phrase that I have uttered in the intro of these threads more times than I could possibly begin to count — but it remains as accurate and as relevant as ever. Some people just take something and run with it, we humans consistently fall prey to this due to the logical fallacy of feeling ‘moreish’: if one of something was good, then one more will be even better. Bu…

School Fires Teacher When They Try to Give Notice, So They "Burn" Their Grade Book and All Records

A teacher gave notice and was swiftly fired by a vindictive principal, who then wanted access to their teaching records.

They report that they enjoyed their time at this school until a new principal came on board. After handling constant nitpicking about insignificant things, they had had enough. The teacher, Reddi…

School Promises to "Provide Dinner" For Teacher Appreciation Week, Gives Them Uncooked Spagetti in a Bag

These teachers were promised that they would have dinner provided to them during teacher appreciation week. Normally such an offered gesture brings to mind images of a home-cooked or catered meal. Instead, teachers were delivered plastic bags containing the barest store-brand basics that might help one to cook a pot of spaghetti (some assembly required.) The image has gone viral prompting bewildered and outraged responses online. The images were posted to the popular r/ antiwork subreddit by Re…
