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

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. - emraldYE

I have never had this happen to me - Ajkloth

3 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

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. - LemonComputer

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 Detention For Something You Didn't Do

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

Yes can totally relate

6 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

I once mixed up Spanish And Gym so I went to gym and got into my gym clothes, and then it hit me “none of these people are in my gym class” so then I had to go to Spanish and I was like 15 minutes late. Luckily I have a very nice Spanish teacher so she didn’t care. - Alapisboy

7 When Kids You Don't Know Have A Crush On You

It's this boy in 6 grade and he likes me and I'm like :( I don't know you

8 Student Behind You Kicks Your Chair/Desk

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

I think this is really annoying I'd turn around and say stop and they would say they weren't doing anything

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

11 Forgetting Lunch Money

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

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

12 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!?

13 People Walking Extremely Slow In Front of You When There Is No Way Around Them

Like at my school there be a crowd of people and it's a slow walker and there isn't no way to get around them so you would have to walk slow

This annoys the heck out of me, MOVE OUT OF THE DAMN WAY.

I just push them and they have to deal with it

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

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

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.

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

18 Nosy Teachers And Kids

21 Teachers Who Turn Unfair Into Fair
22 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.

I used to have the best biology teacher, it is my favorite subject. but she quit and got repaced with some random dude off the street. I knew more than him (no joke) I could flunk a test and then reclaim it and get a perfect score.

44 Teachers that don't understand people are different

I despise my teachers because of that, one even kicked me out for not using her "methods". I've spent so many classes arguing with teachers who don't understand my brain is different and that's why teachers hate me. - Internet-User
