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. - emraldYE

My locker is easy to open - Captaincrunch2015

So true! it's so funny seeing peoples reactions

2 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! - emraldYE

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. - Captaincrunch2015

Going first is my worst fear for presenting or a speech - Ajkloth

4 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! - emraldYE

5 Getting the Period Numbers Wrong

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. - PositronWildhawk

That happened to me once. I accidently skipped 5th period because I thought it was 6th. - Pegasister12

Walking into the wrong classroom...just horrifying. - emraldYE

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.

6 Detention For Something You Didn't Do

Yes can totally relate

7 Student Behind You Kicks Your Chair/Desk

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

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

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

I simply wanna kill that student : )

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

22 Teachers Who Turn Unfair Into Fair
23 People Walking Slow In Front of You

"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.
