Worst School Pet Peeves

The Top Ten
1 Locker Won't Open

You're often late to class because of this, or have to get a teacher's help. And it's pretty embarassing standing there and yelling and slamming at your locker as people walk by.

I have tried pulling it and repeatedly kicking/banging on it which doesn't help at all...

This happens to me a lot! Then like I get help and I'm like late to class

The cause of people being late to class

2 Missing the Bus

Especially bad if it's the afternoon. Then, you have to walk home or go into the office and look like an idiot.

I wish this would happen to me in the morning

I have never had this happen to me

3 Passing Papers Back the Row; Forget to Take One

This isn't the worst pet peeve, but is certainly one of the most humiliating. Then you have to ask for the paper because you DIDN'T TAKE ONE!

4 Drawing #1 for a Presentation

Presentations are already embarrassing enough, but it's especially bad when you don't know what to do AND you have NO EXAMPLES to help you!

If I'd have to perform it to the class, I hate them.

If I don't have to perform it, I actually kinda like them if they're for science or geography.

Every time there is a presentation either the kid in front of me or a random kid gets it. I am normally #10 or 12 but sometimes I am 2.

Going first is my worst fear for presenting or a speech

5 Getting the Period Numbers Wrong

Once in primary school I started eating my lunch after phys ed because the year before we had lunch after phys ed on wednesdays (early in the year still), and I had my lunch at the table as we had to eat indoors before going out, then my teacher asks me "what is that? " (Imagine just sandwich crusts in a glad bag at this point), and I say, innocently, "my lunch...". He tells me to throw it away as he tells us what we'll be doing next. I almost died.

I once went out of my Maths class, feeling like it was break, went into the school library, and only just realised I'd missed the next lesson when the librarian said "pack up, folks; it's nearly break". I nearly died.

That happened to me once. I accidently skipped 5th period because I thought it was 6th.

I thought we had swimming (in gym) so I went and got my swimsuit on and stuff but I realized it wasn’t my class so I had to change back into my clothes and that’s the story of how I was 15 minutes late for class

6 Detention for Something You Didn't Do

this little 3rd grade kid had punched someone like the other person wouldn't fight back he had got what was coming to him then I got blamed for being black

I got a suspension for this once. I also got in trouble with my parents. It is 1 million times worse than a detention.

Luckily we don't have detention in where I study.

Yes can totally relate

7 Student Behind You Kicks Your Chair/Desk

A stupid boy kept doing that during my exams, I wanted to break that smug ugly face of his.

It's REALLY hard to concentrate with your entire desk and papers rattling.

It drives me crazy when people do that! I can't concentrate like that!

I simply wanna kill that student : )

8 Kids Who Rush Through Their Work

That’s me, because I just want to go on TheTopTens instead of do my work.

9 Kids Who Tell Every Classmate They Possibly Know If You Do Something They Think is Bad

Thinking they do everything right...girl bye

Guess what? Sadical is listening to music in class! Hey Bob, sadical is listening to MUSIC! Mr. John, sadical is listening to music! I bet it’s bad!

10 Forgetting Lunch Money

Always bad when you have to starve or ask someone to buy you lunch.

Well at my school everybody brings their own lunch and sometimes people will bring money for the canteen. So this is not a problem, but forgetting your lunch box sucks.

The Contenders
11 People Walking Extremely Slow in Front of You When There is No Way Around Them

"Hey excuse would you mind WALKING FASTER poorly HOW THE HELL IS ANYONE GOING TO GET TO CLASS WITH YOU WALKING LIKE A ZOMBIE?!?! " I just think it's so disrespectful when people walk so damn slow in front of you or worse, just stop and start talking. What the hell?!?! Why would you do that? Why can't you just move to the side and talk with your friend and let me through?! No you just have to stop and tell your friend about what Jennifer said to Amber (or whoever) sorry I do not care about them. When I tell you to kindly move to the side you start to cuss me out?!?! And then my teachers ask me why I'm late to class...if only they knew.

I just push them and they have to deal with it

I hate when kids do this

There’s people who just stand still in the middle of the hallway.

12 Getting Too Much Homework

Myt teacher says there is no homework 30 min later he say there is homework

I hate homework when I get a lot of it

Oh yeah, homework is very annoying.

13 Reacting Too Much Over Farts

Why is it so important that you have to embarrass the closest kid next to you that farts just so you can be "popular" for be being just rude!?

14 Surprise Quizzes

People who don't study are pretty much done for when they forget about a quiz or the teacher just surprises everyone with them.

15 When Kids Annoy You and Get Away with It

I be want to be choke them and the teacher

Happened to me so many times.

16 When Teachers Treat You Like You Don't Know Anything

My special ed teacher in high school thinks that I'm dumber than a 1st grader. In the class, we only did super easy stuff like very basic addition, counting coins, telling time, etc. It makes me feel stupid.

Like, shut up! I'm not a five year old, stop trying to make whole lectures about everything

I kinda don’t know anything though

2+2 anyone (everyone's hand in the air five minutes to pick someone) or the other way around

17 Feeling Gum Under the Desk

I hate when that happens!

Just gross. Enough said.

18 Tripping in the Hallway or on the Stairs

I fell in a puddle in the hallway once and the whole day it looked like... you can probably tell

I tried to walk cute and I wasn't looking and just fell

Not just embarrassing, but it HURTS.

19 Nosy People

All special ed teachers are nosy

My 7th grade english teacher.

20 Kids Who Sniff During Tests and Don't Bother to Blow Their Nose

OK I admit that I’m guilty of being one of those kids, but I have pretty good reasons for it:

-cold and allergy season. I am an allergy sufferer. Even taking allergy medication before school doesn't help.
-I ran out of tissues (I usually pack a few of them whenever I go to school)
-teachers will not let me go to to the bathroom to blow my nose during test

It’s also annoying when it’s not during tests

I’m that kid who sniffs during tests 😂

21 Dabbing Students

Dab on the haters

22 Getting in Trouble for Something You Were the Victim

That always happen because The Annoying Orange is on the air and Justin Bieber exists

That is just degrading and insulting

I got in trouble for being a bullying victim in 1st grade and in high school :(

23 When the Teacher Hovers Over You

Special ed teachers in a nutshell

This happens to me cause my teachers kinda know that I don’t do my work

24 When People Don’t Give Your Pencil Back

This happened to me quite a few times. If one comes to school or to class ill-prepared, like not having a pencil or few on hand, then they should suffer for it. A pencil, more so, a box of pencils is not expensive at all! I wish I had the backbone to say that to those constant pencil-borrowers at the time, but unfortunately I was too nice to say anything back then. Still agitated me greatly all the same.

Literally, you give them your pencil and they don’t give it back when it was to only borrow
