Top Ten Most Annoying Things Teachers Do

The Top Ten

1 Give Out Lots of Homework

I hate homework it's like paper versions of hell

2 Keep the Students In the Classroom Until They Say They Can Leave

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.

My maths teacher does that. She once kept us in class for 10 minutes, and I'm sure the van drivers were pretty pissed off.

Some of my teachers do that all the time! It pisses me off! - Pegasister12

They don't even notice the bells

3 Say That the Whole Class Is In Trouble Only Because One Person Did Something

Yes once some kid printed too much paper and the hole class got into trouble and he said the printer cost too much money

It is so bad that teachers do that, well at least some don't - 170253

This one is so annoying...! - Danguy10

Definition of my high school homeroom teacher during my last few years in high school. On kid was reportedly joking about another student and my teacher summoned the ENTIRE CLASS back to homeroom before the last class of the day and proceeded to YELL at all of us saying that were bullying despite the fact that I was innocent. Not only was it so embarrassing because the neighboring classes could her her, but after the late bell to the last class rang, she still kept us until she was finished yelling at us. I was in tears from it and she doesn’t care about my feelings. 10 minutes later we can go to our last classes and I had to explain to my teacher and classmates why I was late, all while I was crying. They were all very supportive of me, unlike my
a-hole homeroom teacher who doesn’t give a @&%^! I’m SO glad I’m not in high school anymore!

4 Ban Talking Like It's a Sin

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 treat like not talking in class like it is the 11th commandment in the bible - Ihateschool

5 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 am really good at math and they make you do garbage tactics that do not work and have no score effect but only make me go 30 minutes slower - Ilyas678

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

6 Make Due Dates Too Early

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

7 Call Your Parents Because You Did Something Bad

Ew... And its always the ones who try and be nice. - Finnmclachlan

8 Send You to Detention
9 Send You to the Principal's Office
10 Give Out Homework Over the Weekend

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.

That sucks because I have plans for weekends and I'm not gonna waste them doing homework

My French teacher once set us homework over Christmas break to write a paragraph about a famous French person.

The weekend is our free time not homework time

The Newcomers

? When they give a huge speech about one thing you have to do in class, and take up the whole class talking about that and then yell at you for not finishing it

This has happened to me so many times

The Contenders

11 Keep You After the Bell
12 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

Yeah all the time

true

13 Treating you like a baby

Definite

14 Assign Group Work and Put a Sensible Student with a Group of Idiots

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.

15 Get Mad at You for Following Their Exact Instructions

Yeah

This happened three times today, with two unique teachers
First one (math teacher):
Teacher: Ask me before pausing the test (testing on a computer)
Me: (finishes test in 5 minutes and ends it)
Teacher: I TOLD YOU TO ASK ME BEFORE ENDING THE TEST
He said pausing, not ending. He also established a rule that, before submitting a test, you must review
your answers independently.
Second one (computer administrator/teacher):
Teacher: Don't log in (means don't login to any websites, computers login to user account
automatically), don't touch the mouse
Me: (opens many (20,000+) Google Chrome windows using the keyboard only)(still following the
instructions)
Teacher: BRING IT BACK TO THE BLUE SCREEN! (they have a blue desktop background)(and,
please don't call it that, even 1st graders know it is called the desktop)
Me: Invokes Blue Screen Of Death (following the instructions)
Teacher: (almost gave detention, then noticed I was politely following ...more

16 Discipline You for No Reason

YES! My art teacher yelled at me for making a very loud yawn during class and said "Are you uninterested?! " Like, no, I'm tired!

What you said cracked me up!

17 Be Jerks
18 Call on You for an Answer When You Didn't Raise Your Hand

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

19 Think they're superior to the pupils

This story actually happened.

*phone rings*
Boy: Get the phone! Get the phone!
Teacher: *answeres phone*
Teacher: Excuse me, you are a pupil, I am a teacher, you should know your place.
Like really?! We are all equal, there is no student/teacher hierarchy. Stop putting pupils down for being younger.

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