Top 10 Most Annoying Things Commonly Said by Teachers

This is a list of some annoying things teachers say to us students, and it involves things teachers say repeatedly that annoy us. Not to be confused with the list of worst things teachers say to students, where the teacher's remarks have actually have a negative impact on your grades, etc.
The Top Ten
1 I don't care who started it

Killer: *enters your house*
You: *gets a gun and a aim*
You: *don't you dare move*
*Cop comes to house*
Cop: why are you two fighting?
You: he's a stranger and entered my house so I-
Cop: I don't care who started it! Jail time for BOTH of you!
You: this is unfair! I didn't do anythin-
Cop: stop making excuses!
*arrest both you and the killer*

My teacher said go back and walk, and I did it in front of a whole auditorium. I even heard some kids laughing

I'm a kid so this happens at my school all the time it's so annoying!

2 Class, the bell does not dismiss you, I do!

I hated this especially when at the end of the day and I want to go home and my bus driver would have no shame in leaving me. I have had teachers make me stay a few extra minutes making me tardy to another class and that teacher wrote me a tardy and did not care why I was late I am to be there by the bell. However a few teachers would dismiss early which was always nice.

Ah, I remember when the bell rang and I jolted off and everyone in that class was staring at me.

If the bell doesn't decide when we leave, then it doesn't decide when we arrive either.

3 I'd expect that kind of behaviour from her, but I'm really surprised at you

My English 2 teacher said something similar to this when I flipped her off. I'm apparently the first female student who has done this to her.

That's very insulting for sensitive people.

4 I'm just gonna wait until the class gets quiet

And when the class is totally silent, she is STILL waiting...

Teacher:I'll wait
My class:*stops talking for a sec* "OK! " *goes back to talking*

5 Tell me the truth right now or else

That sounds like a teacher is unnecessarily threatening a student.

Teachers threaten students all the time!

6 If even one of you doesn't do as I say, all of you will be punished

Collective punishment really sucks.

7 Something's obviously very funny, so why don't you share it with the rest of us?

No I don't, that's why I whispered it, duh!

8 Go back and walk

Whenever my teachers tell me that, I walk until he or she is gone from my sight, then I RUN.

Another annoying line.

This sucked if you got caught running in the hallway and they make you go back and walk

9 If you're so clever, why don't you come up here and take the lesson?

Honestly, I could probably teach the curriculum better than my teacher does.

10 This is your last warning
The Contenders
11 Honestly, it's like talking to a brick wall sometimes
12 You have earned yourself a detention

I earned myself 3 lunch detentions when I was in 8th grade, and I regret nothing.

The 1st one was back in October 2019 for not doing my homework, the 2nd in February 2020 was for flipping someone off because they were laughing at me, and the 3rd was also for not doing my homework in either late February or early March 2020.

Honestly, detention isn't as bad as they say it is and you sometimes even get to draw during your sentence.

13 No, you can’t go to the bathroom!
14 Your behavior is out of control
15 Give me your phone

This never happened to me, but I've heard it happening to other kids.

16 This is for your benefit, so pay attention
17 Stop acting like you're in kindergarten

I have nothing to say

18 Come on. We're waiting.

That is annoying, especially when you want to take your time.

19 Would you do that at home?

Interrupt the teacher, yes, because my parents did it to me.

Yes. I would do that at home.

20 Don't worry. You're not in trouble

They're lying when they say this nine times out of ten.

Do worry. You are definitely in trouble.


Most teachers never really care about their students' feelings, anyway...

22 I've had it with all of you!
23 You're getting paddled by principal

What about "the principal will whip you with his belt"?

24 You're in (insert grade here) you're not in kindergarten!!!!

I just have no words

25 This is a classroom not Sephora or beauty school

My 8th grade math teacher once caught me tattooing myself with a pen in September 2019 and said "This is a classroom, not a tattoo parlor".
