Most Annoying Things About Teachers


The Top Ten

1 They get really mean for the dumbest reasons

My special ed teacher in high school got mad at me for the following reasons:

-another kid put stuff in my backpack
-messy classroom
-me doing my homework
-being 1 second late
-delivering a pizza
-attempting to get seconds during a class holiday party
-having the wii remote for more than 10 seconds during a game of wii sports
-expressing my own interests
-using the computer
-having fun in graderoom
-having our backpacks with us
-joking around with friends
-drawing pictures
-another kid trashed a different classroom
-trying to explain my side of the story
-accepting gifts from other teachers
-visiting my favorite teacher

I am sure there are many more reasons, but I can't remember them all...

When I was in 1st grade my teacher got mad at me because my shoes where squeaking because it was raining and took me into the hallway for it then said that I said I wanted to go in the hallway when I didn't. Then another time a girl ran into me and took me to say I was sorry and held me their and my mom and older sister saw it and then I ran out crying all the way home. I was so happy that my sister made her cry at a parent-teacher meeting and if I see her in the store I glare at her.

I got in trouble for doing work from a different subject after I finished all my work. I was so pissed. And a boy who chews gum in class is just told to spit it out... Talk about inequality. - ArtyLily

My Spanish teacher Ms. Garlic (not her real name) wrote me up for laughing at a joke, getting up to throw trash away, and asking to go to the restroom - idksoleavemealone

2 When you don't have your homework and give them a good reason why you don't have it, they still get mad

Yes I had a teacher who did

You might have it in your locker and you still get a demerit?!

That's very dumber think - belarbi

Me: We had family time
Teacher: Still have demerit
Teacher: Still a demerit
Me: Ffâ€"

3 They brag about a student

(When I was in high school, a kid brought in the latest Apple product to school)
Special Ed teacher: Look class, (insert students’ name here) got a new toy!

They bragged about me to the other students, but they bragged about an autistic kid to me.

It just annoys me

4 They don't do anything about you getting bullied

Had that last year. I told the teacher about some kid and she said "Not my problem"

All in the 4th grade me and my 2 friends were getting bullied and we kept asking and asking them to stop it and guess what? One of US moved classes not them and the teachers always are mean to us

If they did there wouldn't be people committing suicide due to bullying at school! !

This should be number one. One time in math I was being bullied by a few jerks and I reported it to the teacher but the teacher didn't do anything(then again he was a substitute but that's still no reason to not do anything about it)

5 Whenever you have had a really long tiring day in the afternoon then they bring out that you have homework
6 They give you around 4 hours of homework

I had to read SEVEN CHAPTERS for my online classes last week!

I got 16 hours of homework per day in 3rd grade. Now, I get 45 hours of homework per day in 7th grade.

No you don't

7 When it's the first time you have not brought in your homework yet they get extremely mad at you
8 Dumb punishments

I got a referral for laughing at a joke. - idksoleavemealone

True. When I was in 1st grade kids had to face the back of the classroom while standing on a small piece of carpet with an x duct taped onto it if they were being bad. I have been sent there quite a few times.

True in January I got into trouble for holding the door open at the end of the day and the teacher said don't hold the door open your letting the heat out, I was doing that to be nice

True I hate it when they get mad at you for stupid reasons like once when I was holding the door open in January and I was trying to be nice

9 They always want quiet

I hate that so much

I had a teacher who would scream "SHUT UP" every 2 minutes, even when there is no talking.

Well I kind of understand them about that.

10 "Let's talk about" conversations that go on about for 30 minutes

Especially the lectures about behavior. They don' teach us anything. All it does is waste 30 minutes of our lives when we could've been learning stuff or doing homework!

They are like human talking Angela's - Ihateschool

There goes 30 minutes of our lives :(

The Contenders

11 They never understand
12 They mispronounce your name too

I honestly hate this. It makes me so annoyed. My Maths teacher is the only one to mispronounce it. My name is Sidney and of course, you know how to say that. She pronounces it as: Side-knee. She even sometimes calls me 'Side' instead of Sid when calling me the shorter version. Got detention once for screaming at her while telling her how to pronounce it!

My teachers constantly misspell my last name

DAILY. REFERRALS - idksoleavemealone

Ugh, I hate this. My name is Tayo (the a sounds like an I) and my teacher always says it wih a long A. And people who no my name ask how to spell it. PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME!

13 When you ask to go to the the bathroom and then they say why didn't you go on the last break when it was about 3 hours ago.

Right now I'm in 5th, and our teacher is HORRIBLE about this! "Why didn't you go at lunch recess? " Wow, good question! "Because I have a life." And I didn't need to! Freak, just LEMME GOOO.

I'm not allowed to use the bathroom, even during break, then they say that.

14 They think you do something that is bad when you did not

I was put in lunch detention for bullying when I never even bullied anybody! The kid that told the teachers that I was bullying her probably thought that me and my friend(Whom didn't get in trouble) were laughing at her when my friend and I were probably laughing at something funny that happened to me or said friend in the past or at a joke one of us made. Still, I told the teachers that I didn't bully that student. Guess what? Still got lunch detention anyway!

My friends AirDropped 3 images to me which I don't want, which were drawings of silly things. My teacher saw it and said I can't use the computer for the rest of the week. On the same week with Parent Conferences.

In high school another kid trashed a classroom AND THE TEACHERS ALL FRAMED ME FOR IT! Later, surveillance tapes proved my innocence.

I think this kinda means naive. but here's the tip,speak to the teacher FIRST and do not let the bully speak first or,the teacher will believe you. i think this is the teachers now. very naive. also,doesn't mean I laugh doesn't mean I already done it. i was kind of laughing and,that means I was close to crying.i'm very sensitive,guys. also,i am a bully. but doesn't mean that I'm a bully doesn't mean I'm the big bad always,also.i'm 8th at the class and because they think I'm the suspect of the incident,i became 13th. i can't speak to the psychologist,because. i have social phobia. you confused now? I am a bully and I have social phobia,i can't talk to strangers because,i have paranoia. if I get to know the strangers in days. i can talk about him/her. that's it,i'm sorry if I'm talkative much

15 They take pride in killing trees

Then they complain that students do it

My teachers are paid to do it.

16 They talk for the whole period, and never let you get work done. Then, they complain that it's not finished.

Mays science teacher was mad at us instead of the sub - idksoleavemealone

My* - idksoleavemealone

True on my 1st 2 days of computer science my teacher would stop talking for the hole block I got very board and wanted to do something

So true I thought I was the only one that noticed this

17 They don't let you go to the bathroom when you really have to go

I wish we could wear diapers to school because of this

My math teacher does this. There's a rare chance that she'll let me go to the bathroom though.

It's true, even my friends pee in their pants and when it does the teacher will say "it's your fault" how idiot

18 They won't accept the fact that you have a life outside school

Sometimes, I had so much homework that I couldn't spend time with friends whom I hadn't seen in a long time. - railfan99

Once I had so much homework that I couldn't spend time with my aunt and grandmother who were both visiting from CA at the time.

19 They show favoritism towards mean kids and punish good kids

When I was in high school I had a special ed teacher who would constantly reprimand me, the good kid, for nothing.

This should be first. Teacher favoritism is extremely damaging in a school and it has left my impression of a few teachers permanently marred. - railfan99

20 They lose your homework and claim you didn’t turn it in
21 They always think they are right
22 “I don’t care who started it!l"
23 “the bell does not dismiss you, I do!”

My high school special ed teacher once was yelling at the entire class and when the bell rang for the class class she refused to dismiss us because "she wasn't done yelling at us" >:(

24 They treat you like a little kid but expect you to act like an adult

Perfect description of my high school special ed teacher:

Forces us to act our age, but makes us learn kindergarten math.

25 They're sexist

I'm my school they always called on girls

They are always hard on the guys! Even as a girl, I don't think it's right. Just because you have a v@gina doesn't mean you can get away with everything!

26 They call you out just for one mistake.
27 They tell you not to be on your phone when they are on their phones

This doesn’t even make sense like we can’t use our phones but they use it right in front of us - idksoleavemealone

28 They never listen
29 They demand respect but they don't respect you

Students: (talking quietly)
Teacher: (yelling/screaming)THAT IS VERY DISRESPECTFUL, NOW BE QUIET!

Yelling and screaming at students DOES NOT count as being respectful, OK? >:(

30 They will scold you and say in-appropriate things to you just because you did not do your homework.

This applies to ANYTHING that you do or say, not just homework...

31 They expect you to be perfect
32 Giving everyone detention because of 2 guys messing around

Oh yeah, and instead of teaching she was rambling on bout how we needed to be safe from the flu and how her immune system was weak (she got one of the nicest kids in trouble for sneezing) and how her family died because of the flu and how she fell from the bleachers (to be honest she deserved it) - idksoleavemealone

I remember once I had a sub for my 1st pd science class. She was TERRIBLE, even though she thinks she was nice. She overreacted about everything, including her old age. And she gave our class 2 detentions because 1 dude was messing around. Mrs. Coffee (not her actual name) was mad - idksoleavemealone

33 Giving homework on the busiest weekend
34 They only care about school work
35 They deduct points from your assignments then wonder why you're failing

I once had a teacher take like five marks off one of my essays just for missing one word out of the title. Worse still she only took two marks off my friend's essay for the exact same thing! - Entranced98

36 Summer homework

No one got time for that

37 They don’t allow bathroom breaks

They even do this to girls that are on their period...

38 They humiliate students in front of the entire class

It happened to me in college. I was so embarrassed and scared that I cried my eyes out really loudly. Luckily the school staff and the other students helped me that day.

39 They give you the evil look

At least the demon headmaster was fictional. (Book/T.V. Series)

So scary!

40 They give you a zero on work that you already completed and turned in

They lose/misplace it and then give you a zero because "you haven't turned it in"

41 They think they're your parent
42 They don't let us have fun in class

The really strict ones think that school is all work and no play!

43 They are strict
44 They are mean
45 They can be racist

My high school special ed teacher constantly picks on me, and I was THE ONLY ASIAN KID IN THE CLASS!

46 They will punish the whole class because of one person
47 They complain about you going on your phone but then after the lecture they go on their phone too
48 They gossip about students
49 They tattle on you to your parents

Phone call homes

50 They give out pop quizzes
