The Top Ten

Bitchy Popular Girls
one day I'm going to "accidentally" spill water on them and watch the 10 pounds of makeup slide off!
I admit that I hate homework, but it's important. You do learn things from it, and it destroys your grade if you don't do it, and it actually is an important responsibility.

Bitchy popular girls, on the other hand, bring my piss to a boil. Technically, I don't get why they are so popular... because everyone seems to hate them.
Thank God I just finished High School... To choose "the worst thing about High School" wasn't really easy. I just hate it! Everything about it. But apparently "Bitchy Popular Girls"is the worst!

try this I missed 3 months of school and I was going to fail my grade so my teacher said finish all your homework and you'll pass you grade and she gave me 211 pages
I would have a perfect grade point average if I never had any homework. I have also noticed an interesting trend: I invariably have A's in classes with little or no homework, while those that give homework daily have much lower grades.


I am so happy my dad's against homework so I won't get in trouble if I don't do it

3Waking Up Monday Mornings
Entering the shower with the knowledge that you will soon be subjected with 6 1/2 hours of boredom is like entering the 7th circle of hell. #2 getting dumped.


The first thing that comes to my mind when the
alarm goes off on Monday mornings is "this is like
hell, I just wish I were dead"


ME:awesome weekend, the schools, uh oh I don't want to go into detail.

4Annoying Classmates
Worst with bitchy girls. Those bitchy girls team up with annoying classmates to make fun of poor students. I wanna fight these annoying creatures and give justice to those who are abused by these annoying bullies


Die, people. When I was in school, I was getting fed up with some of my classmates. I always think about talking behind their backs so I can enjoy school more. I had fun in the 1st semester, but everything changed when the new semester began. I wasn't picked to answer questions very often, thanks to a nerd who's the female equivalent of Gary Oak. Like she thinks she's better than me. I know more than her anyway, like lemons have more sugar than strawberries, but citric acid makes them taste sour instead. And she says to me everyday:"Smell ya later! ". Plus she gets more liked than me. My mom told me it was because she doesn't want me to be successful. She was right, and I beat her in a spelling bee. Heh heh heh, take that, BITCH.
I am fed up with annoying classmates. I am fed up with them because those morons got my class in trouble several times. Some are stupid, some are annoying, and some, you want to show them in their underwear. My classmates in English were just stupid. I wanted donuts, but these dunces ruined this opportunity. I also have to live with stupid people in reading class, as they either made me sit at a different table, annoy me, or make me rage quit. Idiots also make me lose in P.E. activities. I also hated this motherfer who is more lucky than me. She thinks she is better than me, but she is not.

5Bad Teachers
There are plenty of these at my school. They either have completely boring and unoriginal lessons, disrespect students as if they have no rights, or both.
The worst teachers are the ones that just tell you what to do and not how to do it. My whole maths class is confused because of our teacher. Then she turns around and gives us piles of homework.
I once had a teacher who just talked and talked about stuff that had no relevence to the subject she was teaching. Then it was the end of the lesson and we all failed our grades.
More comments about Bad Teachers

I was friends with a girl since Pre-K. We were such good friends. We would always talk to each other and sit next to each other at lunch. She would always laugh at my jokes and I'd laugh at hers. Then, in 3rd grade, two new kids came: a boy and a girl. Their names started with an A and a B. My friend's name started with a C. In 4th grade, they realized that and became best friends. My best friend called me a jerk and obnoxious for no reason, I was being super nice. She always hung out with them and I was left behind. They are all nice now but they don't really consider me as a good friend. I cannot wait until I'm in middle school (I'm in 5th). I watched Mean Girls and I like the people there (except the Plastic "leader") and I think the teacher is nice. I can't wait! :) I will get to leave those old friends and get new people.

There is another group in my school that I call "The Group." It's all the people who are really rude and act like they're not and they always sit together at lunch. One of them looks at me a lot (Obviously likes me) but I don't talk back because I know that he is in The Group. The girls in the group look too skinny and I feel like they only are friends because of looks and stuff. Sometimes I remind myself that they are mean because a lot of my good friends are now with them and became mean. But luckily I have my best friend Camila who loves the same things I love. For some reason she's bullied by some people in the group so I have to stand up for her. I always have to say to them "Don't be mean! " then they say "Teasing is not bullying" and I'm like, wow what idiots. Or they'll say "You always stand up for her, just give her space" and I'm like, "What else do I do, let her be bullied by you jerks? " Honestly, get a lot of best friends instead of a clique. I have everyone in my class except the bullies and annoying kids as my friends. So pretty much 85% of the class is with me. I hate cliques!


Some talk "like, totally like this! " Some are cool girls, some always fuss about fashion. " daddy! I don't want to go. Too much nature! I need my hair poofed up every day. I need too have a manicure every 5 dAys! " Some females like me don't need fashion! ¡! Just... No. Somd are groups who call you nerd for being smart. Here the story! "Your such a nerd! You read your unfashionable books! We like to wear makeup and be so pretty! My daddy is so rich, we are going on a cruise tomorrow." - they hit me - ugh! They do that to me everyday. I need to teach them a lesson of their 'rich daddies' can't! " Tomorrow - takes a water bottle and spills it on them - oh! My makeup! You little tomboy! I'll get you back.: done : sorry that was a joke I would not actually do that. I am not a tomboy not a girly girl. I'm in the middle because high school guys scare me! :( but I can't stand cool girls
There's a clique at my school and they have nothing better to do at recess than ask me who my crush is and talk in a stupid australian accent and they think that makes them cool.
More comments about Cliques

They spread a rumor that I was gay, almost ruined my life till I screamed out in class to a guy "F*** you bitc* step up! " and know people hate me because they think that my EX didn't cheat on me when I found out she made out with another guy and their telling my new girlfriend I'm just using her... Yup life sucks... :'(
I thought I could trust one of my friends with a secret. Next thing I know, half the class is loudly asking me to ask a girl out, when said girl is sitting 3 feet away from me. Needless to say, she said no.
Kids commit suicide over drama. Its pretty sad it's kind of like bullying.
More comments about Drama

The worst is when the teacher calls the names up to the front to recieve the exams, and you can't breathe and your heart is beating because you know you failed it...

9Too much responsibility and pressure to do well when all you want to do is have fun
It's true... your college career depends on those 4 years. If my higher education was based upon my performance in middle school... I'd be at freggin' M. I. T. lol


I feel like college is where to buckle down and be serious about your career. High school (already) is where you should take varied FUN classes, like baby care, fabrication, auto, gym, computer classes (making websites or developing games). THAT would be nice.


This explains it all! We want to enjoy when we're young! We can learn too, but please, teacher's don't give us that much homework that we can't enjoy ourselves.

I'm not kidding, there are two special needs kids at my school that since they know they have special needs, can get away with anything. The two of them are twins as well so they could beat down another kid and take their money and other valuables and then fall to the ground screaming bloody murder, and the kid they bullied gets suspended. They have actually spit, kicked, punched, etc. Other kids and no one does jack. I have a disorders called Tourette's syndrome and OCD, but I would never bully another kid.

The next group of people I have to deal with is the populars. They act like they are kings and queens before the Magna Carta was signed, doing whatever they want when want. There's even this one popular kid at my school who is such a jerk to unpopular kids especially when they are considered different, but when a popular girl is around, he sugar coats it so he can "get some". What's sad is kids like me are put under the "unpopular category because either, were intelligent, we have disorders, we wear glasses, we are not in PERFECT shape, or we do not own a gun. There is even a teacher at my school who is a bully and gives kids essays for sneezing in class. When I get bullied and report to a teacher, they do nothing, so I have to either deal with it, or fight back and when I or someone else takes action against the bully, they treat the bully better than the person or persons they were bullying.

Death to popular kids and bullies. They don't deserve to live.
This has made several amazing people in my life so depressed they've considered suicide. I don't see the purpose of hurting people especially when self-esteem is such a fragile thing already. It takes a lot to make me hate something but making the stupid decision to bully earns you a right on that list. For those going through this remember people care about you. Even if it's just the quiet girl who sits next to you in class, someone would miss you immensely if you weren't there any more. So, from a loved ones perspective, suicide is NEVER the answer, and it can get better. Stay happy inter-webers : )
awwww, jeezz, I'm going to be going threw this problem now... ahh great, high school bullies now, like I'm in grade 8, and next year I'll be in high school,, now the high school bullies? , c'mon gimme a break, lolz... well if I pull off suicide next year... I'm srry, LMAO jkk jk jk... damn it, high school bullies... let's see what happens, lol

The Contenders


Hated preps so much. They are usually just as bad if not worse than the other students but because of either there mom being a teacher, them being suck ups, or rich kids they get everything givin to them. They always wear bright hollister and abercrombie and I hate it.


12Being A Virgin
what makes it worse is the people who lie about getting some because that makes you feel like your the only one not getting laid


everybody's bitchy in this matter. hey, I'm still a virgin! and what's the matter with that? and in the future we will be get laid like aman28 said


This is just amazing, I don't know how homework got so high but this should be merged with Bitchy Popular Girls, Annoying Classmates and Bullies.


13The Teachers
Don't trust Power Ranger Time Force, SPD, Samurai and Super Samurai because they are low lives.

14The Friend Zone
every guy knows about this


Yeah I ask out the monst prettiest girl in school and now were friends and she acting strange with the president of are school so I still need to find a girl friend


A huge waste of time. All it is is an opportunity for people to wear clothing that would get them shot if they wore in public, and preps to crow about school spirit.


Mine literally stank. The guys (as in boys) did not wear deodorant and started sweating profusely. Then they had to lift their arms up while dancing. Did I tell you I am a short female?

16Oral Presentations
Everyone stares and snickers if you made a mistake, and make dumb comments thinking they're funny and cool


My worst fear is laughing incontrollably in front of everyone /:


Worst thing ever. I'd rather die

17The PA System
It goes off a hundred times I day, I swear. On top of that, it always seems to be handled by someone who can't handle public speaking at all.


18Theres always either a really fat person or a really slow group of people in front of you
WHAT ARE U FREAKING WAITING FOR?!... like c'mon!, they burn time on lunch!, they slow me down... I really think the schools should have halways traffic or something... frigging gets me mad all the time D:<


LMFAO THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! Oh, and it's the worst when there's a really, really short fat midget in front of you walking extremely slow. I just wanna walk over them! Slow people make me late to class!


One time I was going to my locker for 2nd period and the guy in front of me stopped for NO REASON. Like what the hell are you waiting for! I'm trying to go to my locker! Son of a b*tch made me late too. I also hate pep rallys my school ALWAYS has them in the SCORCHING hot heat.

19Not Getting a Hint On How to Use New Math Concepts In Actual Situations
Okay, that concept seems logical, now how the hell will I figure out when and where I'm supposed to use it?!


20First Love; First Heartache
Your mind is still developing, and getting into an actual relationship for the first time simultaneously makes you feel like you're walking on air, and then the next it feels like being in a dark, deep, hole when the heartache happens.
my mom hasnt accepted my first love :(


My mom forced me to break up with my girlfriend because it is not my moms best friends daughter

21Teachers, principals, and other school authorities tell students to respect them but they are very abusive
they tell students to behave, keep quiet, but they are busy talking and shouting with each other regarding how to abuse a student. regarding the haircut, they are very strict too but when the security guards is bald and no balds allowed in the school, they should change it


I remember back when the principal assigned seats in the cafeteria and would punish us for using our Constitutional right of protests and petition.

22Nice people are seen as "nerds"
Oh my god... And people are all "don't be friends with them, they're losers, hang out with us" when they're actually very nice people.
Ever since 6th grade, this has happened. The popular kids talk about sex and aren't good role models. They even PEER PRESSURE you. One time, a new kid came to my school and she was very nice and sounded intelligent. My friend told me that she is ugly. Seriously! Why aren't popular people getting insulted? Besides, smart and nice people are successful in the future.
Tips from the "anti-nerds" how to become a cool person.
1. Get bad grades such as them.
2. Abuse everyone.
3. Got in argument with your parents.
4. If they're poor, yell at them why can't they buy the same IPhone.
5. You fail at the tips.
6. You ruin your life thanks to those idiots.

23Pep Rallies
i used to literally get sick at these things i would get dizzy from all the screaming, stinking teenagers. i eventually started skipping them. i would actually rather go sit in dirty school bathroom than go tto them!!!!


I absolutely hate pep rallies with a passion! They are do loud and pointless. I hate when everyone is screaming and dancing. It makes me mad. The cheerleaders are not even hot ( There is even one GUY in it). So me, my friend and only about fifty other kids in the whole school go to the cafe during the Pep rally. We are the smart kids in our school!
What disgusting things. It's more like a brainwashing ceremony than anything else. Cheerleaders are sex symbols, the music is so loud it gives you a headache and the whole thing is boring and pointless. I hated these things so much-thank god I graduated, no more of this crap! :D

24People With Disabilities Get Picked On
I have adhd and several learning disabillities and people always talk about me being stupid :-(
I have minor anxiety problems and I am treated like a ritard
It is mean and should be stopped.
More comments about People With Disabilities Get Picked On

Actually, many schools have compulsory athletics. My school makes me do sports every single day and, I have to say, it might be the worst thing that's ever happened to me.
I really dislike my P. E teacher during high school, he always pushed us the boys to play soccer, while I and a few friends who can't do it well get mocked!

26Gay People
I just kicked this because its random. Where is the option for "ugly bítches who act like losers, don't shower for weeks, always talk about beer, and always call every other girl in school a slut"

Better to be stoner than jocks


These people...
Oh these people...


28Student Council
As if school needs another popularity contest.


teacher's, professor's, principal's secret soldiers and they can't resist an angry adult and can't protect fellow students for their rights


This was the worst day of my life.


They're a waste of space. Send them to rehab, not school.
I got in trouble one time because they were smoking next to me when I was walking to class and I got suspended when they tried to give me some, keep in mind I'm an honors student so the five day suspension that made my gpa drop from a 4.5 to a 3.67 from missing class gives me some bias to this question.

31Dumbass Students
There are so many ignorant idiots wasting class time and doing annoying dumb things.
At least the ones in my class do someting funny.

32School Spirit

33Morning Announcements
*BEEP* Good morning!! Please be quiet while I read you meeting times for a bunch of clubs you don't care about. Then, Eleanor and Sarah will tell you how much you're being overcharged for prom tickets, and then the President of Student Council will lead us in the pledge of allegiance because she likes to hear herself talk. Finally, I'll tell you how badly the sports teams got killed last night. **BEEP**


Dumb and annoying good morning please stand for the pledge then well ill tell about stupid ass clubs and the boring ass military ball tickets retarded afterschool activites that nobody cares about nobdy is gonna want to join these boring ass activities.

34Teachers that have nothng to do but to talk, talk and talk with a surprise quiz every meeting
Oh my freakin god! There's this one teacher... I swear I learned how to fall asleep with my eyes open in his class. Then... BAMM! Here's a pop quiz on all the crap I've been talking about for the past 20 minutes! Not to mention this stuff isn't going to help you in your life...
very strict, and very lazy teacher


35Fire Drills
Even though they do get us outta class, they give me an instant headache, plus they always seem to happen when its half a degree or 114 degrees Fahrenheit.

even artists and popular people need some privacy and peace of mind

Lord Jesus it's so annoying you go to play one game and BAM BLOCKED PAGE
One thing that pisses me of about this

-They Block pages that have flash games that are family friendly
-Porn sites are not blocked websites where I am in school districts



42Call of Duty / Halo Fanboys
These idiots are dominating my year and I get judged just because I play different games. They automatically assume that Mario or Pokémon is the worst game ever, just because it's not a shooter! They think they are the ultimate gaming masters, but they would die in three seconds flat if they played Mega Man.
I don't know what a quad feed is. "Oh, get out of here."
I don't like shooters. "What the heck, those are like, the only good game genre ever."
I like Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy, "RPGs are for wimps."
They made fun of my rts's they DIE

50People talking about how "black" they are
There was this idiot 6th grader on my bus last year that tried to act cool by singing along to thrift shop, and emphasizing the f-bombs. News flash: you're an upper middle class white kid who goes to an advanced school. You're about as far from gangsta as you can get!

Why the heck do they have to make school so long? Why can't they make school like 3 days a week. You wake up Monday morning and your like no! 5 days of torture are just waiting. It screams BULLIES and major TORTURE!

I wouldn't care if we had year round school if it just started later in the day! I can't even pay attention when I'm half asleep! In may I finally ditched first period everyday because homework was keeping me up and I need sleep!

They are so annoying! When they're not screaming stupid cheers, their drooling over jocks, applying makeup, or gossiping about people who be themselves. DIE CHEERLEADERS DIE!
No one needs dumb uneducated girls to yell in their retarded girls voices and wear the shortest dresses, like go work on some homework and get good grades first!
They like
Cheerleaders: ready? Ok! We are cheerleaders we're the best so much better than the rest!

Me : die

61Stupid Uniforms
Well. We have to wear uniform because think of how many people would get bullied due to the lack of popular brands clothes.. But I agree. They should make the uniforms 20% cooler than they are now!
