Top Ten Most Annoying Things Teachers Do

The Top Ten

Give out lots of homework

Yeah, its really annoying like why. Home is our break. We are basically like adults because we both work but we have to work at home too. My parents work at home too but at least I helped them and it makes it less harder for them so ya. I am a good boy. Why do we need work if I already do at home.

I mean, they don't even help us that much, and we actually get punished for not completing it.

Homework is terrible. It's a waste of my time, it's very boring and it's very annoying.

My college does this sometimes. Good thing I get extra time to complete them.

Say that the whole class is in trouble because one person did something

Tell me about it. It's happening far too frequently now, that I'm seriously getting convinced that teachers do this on purpose. Now, I'm a person who's never been into trouble at school individually because I never did stuff purposely at school. I had this one teacher that gave us a 30 minute lecture for not being in class on time, being on our phones and fooling around in class. I don't do either of those stuff and some of the other students who were in my class don't either. But for some reason, it was everyone else's fault and the teacher gets even more mad when one kid was laughing during the lecture. I really DISLIKE when teachers do that.

This lil kid called Michael does apsilute hell and I don’t blame the teacher but with the things Michael does she gets mad and as she says it she looks at the whole class and it is just him! She does say she feels sorry for some of us but I can’t help getting annoyed by it sometimes

I absolutely hate sitting at the back row of school because all of the annoying guys sit there. The teacher only let the students go to lunch from the front row because most of the 'good girls' sit there. The teacher never notices me and gets me to stay back with all of the boys because all of them did something but not me. I hate sitting at the back row.

YES! When I was in high school my special ed teacher heard 1 kid joking around during lunch and then she yelled at the whole class for it.

Keep the students in the classroom until they say they can leave

Oh my gosh this is so infuriating. I had a teacher in my freshmen year of HighSchool who did this. It is the last class of the day sadly because one time he made everyone stay after class for almost 10 minutes because the class wouldn't stop talking, and I missed the bus home!

I absolutely hate it when teachers do this and also when they punish everyone for one persons mistake. I feel like I want to just walk out of the classroom >:(

Yeah, good luck if you have bladder problems if you aren't wearing black pants, because everyone will laugh at you thanks to the teacher.

Yes! The bell has gone! They make us stand behind our chairs quietly. I mean, if we come to class after the bell, they get annoyed but they keep us after the bell. To all teachers, if the bell doesn't dismiss us, then it's also doesn't tell us when we get to class. Technically, we can come whenever we want. This is especially annoying if it's break, lunch or the end of the day, especially if you need to catch a bus or something.

Ban talking like it's a sin

My school is religious and I HATE the head teacher everyone hates her my mum is a teacher in the school and always calls her a witch

OH yes, talking is what everybody does. And they ban it. Our teacher always says, "Want to talk? Go outside and have a lovely chat, and come back in."

My teacher is legit crazy. He said why are you talking and then I tried to explain than he screamed at me like what

Teachers need to stop with banning talking. They got to learn that kids deserve to talk. Just do it!

Give out homework over the weekend

What the heck? I don't have ANY resting time in the weekends. I actually get the most work over the weekends. "Just because there is no school doesn't mean you don't study." SERIOUSLY!

One time I was talking in class and my teacher said, "School is not for socializing! " So I said "Home is not for working" and got detention for 3 weeks.

Like when I'm going to the philippines the school system gave me homework on my vacation day and it pisses me of,because its vacation and it's escaping the boring lives at school, but they want us to bring homework at vacation and ruin our fun vacation and it's like plague or a disease making people sick this homework at the vacation days or the weekends is the plague or disease to our brain. #BoycottHomework

This is so annoying! My writing teacher assigns essays over every weekend, and once Monday comes around, she's all like, "So did you do anything fun this weekend? I went to the beach! It was so amazing! " Like no! No, I did not do anything "fun" thanks to you!

Make you show your work

My math teacher always tells us that we have to show our work for every little problem. And if you missed at least two or three or more that is counted as incomplete even though you showed you work for the rest. That beyond annoys me and gets me stressed cause if your work is not neat and your work looks like the Greek alphabet then that is counted as incomplete. So our work always has to be neat and have to show how I got the answer for every problem to be counted as complete.

I can normally complete a worksheet in 5 minutes. Showing my work to the bare minimum to even pass brings it from 5 minutes to 1 hour. To get a perfect score, it will raise that up to 3 hours. So, there is 36* as much showing work as there is actual work.

Teacher: What's 1+1?
Student: 2
Teacher: Show your work. And if you don't, you lose marks!
Screw you teacher!

This should be number one! I almost failed math because of this

Call on you for an answer when you didn't raise your hand

When that happens, the frustration and furiousness inside me always wakes up (but I stay calm anyways)!
I don't raise my hand, I don't know! Is that so hard for teachers to understand?

So, I was in class and I SUCK AT MATH. And I wasn't raising my hand, so if u don't raise your hand they shouldn't call on u. So I didn't have it up, MY TEACHER CALLED ON ME! UGHH

Why do they do this? I don't want to answer this, so why choose me? It's like our opinions doesn't matter!

This does not help the student at all

Give you homework on a lesson you haven't learned yet.

When we're starting a unit my teacher gives us the hardest question in the entire unit. We can't see the future, you know.

This happened so many times

Call on you when no one else answers

If no one raises there hand, then apparently we don't want to answer.

Make due dates too early

Let's say I have a project. A really big one that has to have 10 pages in google docs with no pictures and letter size 11. But the time they give us is 1 week. Don't they collaborate with other teachers or something? They have NO IDEA of how much homework we regularly have. I always have to sleep at 12 pm at least once a week.

This is so annoying! The teacher assigned a big project about the the branches of government, it looked very confusing and I had to spend 3 days just buying the supplies! And the project was due 6 days after given. I worked really hard but it still wasn't fully completed and I got in troyble.

One of my teachers always does this. Like we have six papers we have to finish tomorrow and I don't even understand this piece of crap. And I am like can we at least have three or four days to complete this?

Even more annoying when they don't even tell you the due dates

The Newcomers

? Make students sit next to people they hate
? Force you to tell about yourself

The Contenders

Call your parents because you did something bad

Especially annoying because you KNOW your parents are going to be grumpy about it even if you didn't do it or it wasn't your fault.

Even in your teens they will still do it, like seriously? Not that it ever was my problem, but your threatening to call a teens parents? Come on.

My parents are so strict. No matter how many times you try to convince them it was the other person

This gives me anxiety about going home and makes stressed for the rest of the day

Tell the entire class "I'm just gonna sit here until you're quiet" and then give a 40min emotional and spiritual speech about how the class is wasting time

My art teacher does this. She walks into our class and starts complaining about her job. Most of my class takes a nap during that time. Then she says that we wasted her time.

It doesn't make the teacher look scary or intimidadting. It just makes them look stupid because they are wasting even more time than it would take for them to just tell the class to be quiet

My teacher does this and everyone just has this frozen annoyance and disgusted look because she blames us yet only two people talked and she had to form a whole speech and then by the end of it, we have to go. Then she gives what we were supposed to do in class as homework! 😵ugh

Honestly, in like Year Five, this teacher was super nice (heck, he let ten year-old me annoy him to oblivion! ) but also kinda lazes off. He had to call in a literal devil-teacher and he yelled at us for 20 minutes straight about the 'standard of Year Five' and how it's decreasing rapidly.

Call your parents over something simple

If you simply breath teachers will call your parents...

When all they do is repeat the directions when you don't understand the assignment

When you have a question, don't go ask him/her. They will literally repeat the same thing over and over again. Just ask a friend who knows.

I had a teacher. (I will call him/her X). Anyway X was telling us instructions that half the class didn't understand. Then X said that if you didn't understand it then sit on the carpet. So then X repeated word for word the exact same thing again. Of course, since X said it the exact same way again. None of us understood. I'm assuming you know what happened next. X just said the word for word exact same thing again. Like before, no-one got it. X just sighed angrily and sent us back to our seats. I guess X just expected us to know everything and that we were bluffing when we said we didn't understand it. In the end, only half the class got any work done - Unnamed Google User Remade


At tests that’s all they do annoying!

Think you always have a attitude, when you don't

Maybe I'm just a chill person...

Lose your work that you hand in, then make you redo it.

In high school I do all my work and hand them all in on time, then I get Es and 0s on my report card

This happened to my friend. He handed it in and then the teacher lost it and kept asking him to hand it in.

Had to do an algebra assignment 4 times before she didn't lose it.

Once, my algebra teacher lost my test and he wrote on my report card that I was absent

Cry on their jobs

I'm just trying to get out of class teacher, I don't care how your dog died...

Make boring jokes

One of my teachers literally SHIPS me with students.

Your not funny so please stop...

Send you to detention

One time I got detention but my teacher had to leave because she was having a baby. She left before she gave me detention for eating in class.

But we can go have an hour detention for mispronouncing words like thug or flock, man, I feel bad for the Japanese import student.

Yea it happens, it also reminds me of when in Kindergarten we had a peer who was sent to Detention for some reason.

You ma miss out on work AND it doesn't even teach you anything or give you a lesson

Assign group work and put a sensible student with a group of idiots

This is something that all sensible students share. WHY DO THEY ALWAYS PUT US WITH A BUNCH OF IDIOTS? I literally feel like talking to air when I try to start working. I was actually paired up with the dumbest kid in class because I was the smartest and apparently, my teacher wanted me to help him. Well, I did all the work while he watched youtube and played games secretly. I actually got a D on that project and a 1 for teamwork. EXcuse me, but it was him who didn't do it!

You have NO idea how much I HATE HATE HATE that so god damn much! Whenever a teacher assigned us partners, everyone groans already because we all know that it's not going to be easy. I HATE getting assigned with people I cannot stand. And they know I can't stand them! So they do this all on purpose! That's all I needed to know!
And if it's not that, if you don't have anyone to be with, they pair you up with this person who you don't want to be with and they don't even care. If there's one thing I like about the Coronavirus, it's not getting paired with annoying people all the freaking time.

I'm always the one in the group who has to do 99.1% of the work and the only thing the other members might do is put their name on the worksheet. One time I got assigned to three girls who were just on their phones the whole time and didn't care to do research. Yet they got mad when I highlighted their names in strikethrough text and credited myself 4 times on the presentation. Cost me a full letter grade but at least my teacher understood why I was that frustrated.

Teachers who assign a group for you to work with. I hate this. I get it, teachers think it's good to be able to work with other people, and it is, but they should at least let you choose a group, because 99% of the time they're going to put a good student with a complete idiot and the good student's grade with suffer, all because of the bad student, so think about it before you assign groups, are these students going to get on and are they both going to do their work? Ideally, let the students choose their own groups, but make sure they are not with somebody who could distract them, and also if a good student gets a bad grade, you know why - you assigned a sensible student a group of idiots. Also, don't yell when a student gets a bad grade, because you know why!

Get a 100% percent on a grade and they mark you down to a F.

I don't get 100%, so I don't have to worry about this!

3 people.
1. Ms white Reynolds Copeland.
These people really piss me off.

Be boring

You make this class depressing...

Keep you after the bell

One time I had to stay 3 minutes after class because my math teacher said "You can't leave until all your notes are written down and I check them."

Again "The bell doesn't dismiss you I do." Then sit there for a second then they say "What are you doing the bell rang"

This gave me anxiety about being late for my next class or about missing the bus or missing my lunch

This happens often and it ends up with students almost missing their buses.

Think they are always right

What do teachers these days have against admitting that they're wrong for once in their lives? They think they're always right, they don't give a care about the person defending themselves when they're in trouble even when they have a good point. Teachers are out to get innocent students that try to work hard in school and do NOTHING wrong on purpose! And I'm sick and tired of it!

Just because you're an adult and lived longer doesn't mean you are always correct, and make no mistake. When they do, he punishes the student who proved him wrong for "harrasing" him. We all have opinions you know!

My math teacher would always pester us saying that the decimal doesn't move and one tudent (for some unknown reason) starts arguing with the teacher how the decimal does move and the rest of the week they argued about who was right. The week after the teacher decided to solve the problem and send him to the principles office saying he was "harrasing" her and the rest of the class.

My history teacher said that in our diary it says that we should have "highlighters" which means more than one. We all started to check in our diary and I was the first to find the equipment page. And guess what, it didn't highlighters at all!

They show favoritism towards other kids

Yep, that happened to my class. It was just because her mom is a teacher at our school. Literally everyone thought so! Then she started being mean to me and my bff, then I told my teacher! She apologized. Then started showing favoritism to me! Then she got in trouble a LOT! And now here we are CORONAVIRUS

My 7th grade english teacher favored my sister over me. She always requested a parent conference for me when my sister did the same thing.

OH MY GOD THIS IS SO TRUE. I had a teacher in 9th grade that would treat a girl in my class better than anybody in the entire school. She’d let her go on her phone, talk with friends, go to the bathroom, you name it. Would she let me do that? HELL NO!

If one of my teachers were like that, if one kid got the "favoritism", I would do the same stuff as that kid and not give a crap until the teacher allows no one to do it.
