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.

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.

Homework= hell and prison mixed together on a piece of innocent paper

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

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.

Just like the time my music teacher allowed us to choose partners,however one of my classmates talked and for the entire period I pretty much hated but not hated him

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!

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.

I think that just getting the right answer is great, instead of making you do sone pointless work showing

Why do they always say "But I want to know how you got your answer" after you do it right in front of them

Call on you when no one else answers

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

Call your parents over something simple

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

Make due dates too early

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

I need longer than two days to write ten pages

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

Maybe I'm just a chill person...

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

especially for parents who are little to not strict and they just don't ground him/her

The Newcomers

? Use 15-year old "memes"

The surprised kid is older than most serviceable computers

The Contenders

Cry on their jobs

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

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.

Make boring jokes

Your not funny so please stop...

Give out homework over the weekend

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!

Teachers who give out homework over the break don't know what the definition of "break" is! Our entire lives do not revolve around stupid school and work.

Be boring

You make this class depressing...

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

Tell us about their life story

Three words: We Don't Care

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

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!

I'm a very good student who does their work, and the teacher put me to work with a boy who barely did any work, another boy who always gives excuses, and a girl (which is a friend that I kinda hate) that did work, but not all what she was asked to do. I did the work I had to do, and let them do theirs. A few days before submission date, they came to me and told me they didn't get everything they were assigned. I ended up losing about 20% of my marks because of some idiots that didn't do their work.

To be honest, do they WANT to torture me?! This happened several times. Do they think it’s funny or amusing to watch a good, sensible, intelligent, hard-working, and SOMETIMES shy student be left out and publicly embarrassed by a group of kids who don’t care about the project at all? Once, in 5th grade, I was put in a group with the typical popular clique of three girls. They were very bossy and really didn’t talk to this other guy and I at all, just chatting about social media and all that. Group work is... not my cup of tea because I don’t really make friends that easily and it’s just stressful trying not to say something wrong. I’d take working alone, unless it involves something oral, any day.

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.

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.

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!

Think they are always right

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!

My science teacher said there are little universes in a galaxy which is the biggest thing.

teacher:little universes in galaxyes which are bigger than planet
me:(being in year 10 or 10th grade) sorry... what did you say
teacher: (screaming) don't talk back 1 hour detention for you!

They have an opinion and they STICK TO IT!


Even if they are wrong

Kiss up when the principal's in the room
Send you to the principal's office

I feel sorry for American students.
Go to the Principals office.
Opening that locker.

This happened to me at least twice, once in grade 1, and another time in grade 2

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.

They say they treat every student equally but they treat one kid with special stuff and let that student get away with bad stuff.

I remember one student in my special school named "Jared", he cussed left and right and he got scot free, but when I pulled the middle finger when I didn't know what it was, I got a parent's note.

My bio teacher in a nutshell. His favorite student is racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, etc. and he never gets in trouble when he says offensive things

This is my life everyday. My classmates who are kids of teachers, or are popular, or their parents know the teacher well, my teacher only treats them like they’re so special. Guess what? They’re not. They have been spoiled and babied too much already.

These kids are nothing but spoiled brats who think they deserve everything. Yesterday in art class, stupid Noah was picking his nose and his ears with building blocks and the teacher let him get away with it. He never does any real effort in class and is so lazy. Everyone except for only three of my friends thinks I'm bullying him. But let me be honest. He is a selfish, loudmouthed, half-witted mind corruptor, that nobody should trust!

Mess with kids

And I was always the one they messed with...
