Top 10 Most Annoying Things Teachers Do

The Top Ten
1 Give out lots of homework

The person who invented homework deserves to be sent to DAVY JONES LOCKER! Now, you might think, why would such a heartless and sadistic person do this to us? Because they wanted to hear our reaction. Teenagers are the most fun to make angry because they don't cry, they complain in a teenage way that is entertaining to watch and they can't do anything powerful because they haven't fully grown yet. The person' who invented homework's ghost after they died watches people complain about homework, just for their own amusement. That is really sick.

"Why do we have homework?"
"It makes you smarter."
"But you have SIX HOURS to teach us over a course of 200 days a year for 12 years!"
"Yeah, but you'll be fine. You can handle anything when you're a school student, you can stop doing cool things to do homework because you're a school student and are capable to do so!"

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.

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.

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!

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.

In my school, it was the entire GRADE. so some kids are being loud at lunch, right? Perfectly normal. Lunch aids overreact. Next morning: tables have to have 4 boys and 4 girls! Like, what is that going to do? Another time, they made us sit by class and that was annoying cause I had no friends in my class...

3 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!

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!

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!

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.

4 Make you show your work

Long story short, I'm Asian, my teacher is racist, I showed my work and got the questions right, my tablemates got it wrong, they didn't show their work, the teacher marked them right and me wrong, turns out I was right and they were wrong, the teacher still marked them right and I had to stay behind after class, get a lecture only to realize I'm right, she still marked my tablemates 100% correct and me 75% correct.
The End.

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 always answer my answers right and don't want to go back to the hassle of redoing it all.

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

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.

One of my old teachers would literally rant to the entire class about our disrespectful behaviour or we didn't do or work properly. This still happens. My homeroom teacher now talks to us about kindness even though she's not very kind herself!

My Science teacher always tells us that type of speech, and says we should stop acting like babies and grow up when just 15 minutes she said "Don't touch that it DANGEROUS! You are too young to touch citric acid!
It really is annoying:S

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.

6 Call on you when no one else answers

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

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

Obvi in history class I wasn't raising my hand bc I didn't now the answer and the teacher went like "I'll choose the ones not raising their hands." like bro if I didn't raise my hand then I don't know the answer there's a reason why I ain't raising my hand here.

Usually teachers do this because they think your not paying attention too. But you don't have to know all the answers! Once I was taking notes and my health teacher said "Liz pay attention! " I got so mad!

So my math teacher calls on kids who didn't raise their hand because other kids are, and I quote, "doing all the work." I am super shy so even in late May I can't talk in front of the class without dying.

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?

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

LOL! This happened to my friend, we had this big workbook we had to do which was supposed to last two weeks, my friend wasn't there for a day because she got sick, so when the day came for the teacher to hand back our workbooks the teacher said my friend didn't turn it in, so my friend went home and looked all over the place for it, but it wasn't there, so the next day the teacher gave her a spare one, so she worked on it until 3:00 in the morning, then a day after she handed in the workbook the teacher informs her that she had lost the workbook under the desk. so in apology the teacher gave my friend a binder clip shaped like chips

It happened to me right in eighth grade, with my Manifest Destiny packet for my United States history class. Ms. Fichtenbaum asked for my Manifest Destiny packet, but I couldn't find it anywhere, so she had to text my dad to inform him about it, and then he told me to work on it, that I couldn't even find it at home, so I had to draw out the maps and rewrite the whole story on blank paper instead, and when I turned it in, Ms. Fichtenbaum marked it as a late grade and an F. And it never happened in sixth or seventh grade, not even ninth grade or later.

YES! In science we had to take a form home for our parents to sign and if they don't sign it or the teacher does not get it we can't do any labs. So at the end of one of my science classes I put the form on her desk and the next class she said she didn't have my form!

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

9 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!

One time after lunch my high school special ed teacher forced the entire class to go back into her classroom to yell at everyone over a harmless joke that she took WAY too seriously! Also when the late bell rang for our final class, she wouldn't let us go because "she wasn't done yelling at all of us yet". SO STUPID! >:(

Ugh I was tying my shoes in class and then the teacher said "Come on don't tie them now let's go" and when we went she was like "Why aren't you're shoes tied? " Like really?!

10 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.

We didn't learn it yet, why do they force it in/on us!?!?!?!?!?!?

The Contenders
11 Call your parents over something simple

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

I hate when this happens

That would be the worst if they called your parents for forgetting a pencil or something

12 Simply repeat the directions when you don't understand the assignment

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

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.

At tests that's all they do annoying!

13 Think you always have a attitude even when you don't

Maybe I'm just a chill person...

I ain't even doing anything to them all I do is listen to their words and speeches

14 Ban talking like it's a sin

I mean in a test it's fine and I understand but when you a talking to try and get to work, the teachers blame you more then talking to make people angry. When I was assigned to do the chairs, the library teacher (the strictest one, everything can make her unhappy.) was assigning the groups and I missed out on the group choosing so I tried to ask someone to recall to me and the teacher looked at me and said, "Even the good kids a talking." I was a good kid (a favourite from my year six teacher.) and because of this dumb rule of "don t chat back to adults" I kept my mouth shut.This doesn't imply when a kid is a non-stop chatterbox who annoys people. I would've said to the teacher "Even the strict teachers can't understand why I'm talking." Don't say its because I'm naughty, it's basically the stupidest rule in school I ever listened to.Get this, the most biggest idiots in the school get treated better when they're Finally behaving.Then your normal, kind and disaplined kid always get ...more

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."

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

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!

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 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.

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!

16 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?

17 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.

18 Make boring jokes

My teacher likes to make a lot of dad jokes. He knows they are corny but he still does it. If he has the opportunity to make it he will.

One of my teachers literally SHIPS me with students.

Your not funny so please stop...

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

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.

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.

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!

20 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!

How does that work?

21 Be boring

You make this class depressing...

22 Call your parents because you did something bad

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.

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.

I think it is ok they know how to make this behavior stop from going farther than it already has.

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

23 Talk about their life story

So, today we're going to do pages 19-39 in class and 40-50 as homework. But anyways, this weekend, I went to Taco Bell! I ordered 1500 orders of nachos, and then I carefully placed them into a structure! I placed the first nacho at the bottom, the second nacho next to it, the third next to the second...(1 hour later) Oh, it looks like we're out of time. You'll be doing pages 19-50 in your math book as homework. Bye, class!

Don't worry, we all have to do things we don't want to do.

Yeah once my teacher was telling us about her parent's life story like why

Once my teacher spent a whole lesson telling us abut when they had diarrhea

24 Keep you after the bell

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

I have to get the bus!

I'll be late to my next class!

Either After school detention or the Teacher's dismissal and not the bell crap

25 When in 8th grade when people are having trouble with work they say "you're almost in high school" as an excuse not to help them

And they are the ones who claim every reasonable explanation is an "excuse."
