Top Ten Most Annoying Things Teachers Do

The Top Ten
1 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.

2 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.

Teacher: Do your work
Kid 1: your work.
Teacher: Oh somebody being smarts detention for 2 hours for whole class
Kid 2: But only 1 kid done it
Teacher: You want longer detention? Ok another smarts 5 hours now
Kid 3: But this is unfair!
Teacher: Another smart kid! 8 hours now.
Kid 4: Thanks a lot other kids because we are only 4 kids in class because the classes have little amount of kids.

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.

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

3 Make you show your work

Teacher: asks question that is impossible to show work and knows it
Kid: answers right
Teacher: Show your work
Kid: But it is impossible to for this question
Teacher: Show Your Work All The Time Or... It's Wrong!
Kid: Now I Know you knew
Teacher: Well It's Wrong

The Show Your Work Show part 2
Teacher: Here is 55 pages of homework due in 2 seconds show your work or I murder you kid: does it but has no time to show work Teacher: That's it throws knife random kid: dies Teacher: Yay got him Kid: I am back from my job Teacher: NOOOOOOOOO WRONG KIDDDDDD. I did part 2 because I saw someone replied to me that never happened

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.

This happens all the time in math and if me and my classmates do equations vertically, we have to explain everything that we did to solve the problem in word form

4 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.

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 >:(

My Medieval History teacher keeps students in until everyone is "standing behind their tucked in chairs."
-Annoying if YOU are ready
My biology teacher waits until everyone is lined up perfectly, and holds it for 1 minute.
-Annoying if you are the one civilized person
My math teacher waits until all the borrowed calculators are returned
-Annoying if you have returned or haven't borrowed a calculator
My ELA teacher waits until everyone is cleaned up, silent, sitting "properly," and facing her
-You know the drill

5 Give out homework over the weekend

It's even more annoying when teachers don't let their students work on their assignments DURING class, like when I was in college, I took a class called "Typography, Technology, and Image," taught by Lorraine Tady(rhymes with potty), and she gave us critiques EVERY day in class, even having TWO critiques in one day, and NO time to work on our projects during class, IT'S SO ANNOYING! UGH!

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!

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!

6 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

Teacher: why I have no time for going to a 100 Trillion dollar beach cries do you know why because you keep talking you son of b-t-hs this give me a break that blah blah blah you guys are evil cat I said that because I did this and that stop being evil this I am giving you homework of how you feel about ruining my life by talking that. The end

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

7 Ban talking like it's a sin

At my old elementary school, teachers would always yell at students for talking even when they're talking quietly or whispering. Then they somehow have the entitlement to start having these loud conversations outside of the classroom laughing like maniacs WHEN PEOPLE ARE WORKING. The hypocrisy, I tell you. I just hate it.

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!

8 Call on you when no one else answers

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

9 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.

Okay class we're gonna start a book report on the book we just read woman peace and you better finish it when it's due in 2 seconds what nobody finished had nobody even started that's it I'm murdering you all rose decks kills everybody

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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

I hate it when teachers go " aight kiddie kid kids what's one plus one?" and then they see Jimmy, Timmy, Billy, Clyde, Dave, Gage, Colby, Luis, Greg, Rebecca, Mackenzie, Toni, Courtney, Olivia, Emma, Mya, Izzy, Gwen, and Charlotte raising their hand because they all know it's two but the only kid who isn't raising hand is Steve so they go " How about Steve," Steve asks " Can you ask someone else?" then they go " I didn't call on somebody else I told you," then Steve goes "Uhhh uhhhh three?" the teacher says "No idiot it's two!" then all the kids make fun of him

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!

12 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

13 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

14 Call your parents over something simple

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

15 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!

16 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

one of my teachers does this and says " well I've said the directions multiple times so you should know how to do this, if not you're staying after school" then my whole class had to stay after school


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

Maybe I'm just a chill person...

18 Cry on their jobs

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

They don't care about how their students feel, only themselves.

19 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.

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 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.

20 Make boring jokes

One of my teachers literally SHIPS me with students.

Your not funny so please stop...

In science my teacher made a joke and it was boring but now it’s the most popular joke in school that it’s are school meme 🙄

21 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

22 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.

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

once a teacher kept us in 40 minutes after the bell had rung

24 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.

25 Be boring

You make this class depressing...
