Ten Worst Things About High School

Ten things you hate the most about high school in general.

The Top Ten

1 Homework

try this I missed 3 months of school and I was going to fail my grade so my teacher said finish all your homework and you'll pass you grade and she gave me 211 pages

I would have a perfect grade point average if I never had any homework. I have also noticed an interesting trend: I invariably have A's in classes with little or no homework, while those that give homework daily have much lower grades. - Randomwaffle23

The reason for that could also be that the class that gives more homework is just a harder class overall. Easier classes tend to give less homework, at least at my school they do. - Revrad

Actually I disagree. Homework is something anyone has the capability to do if they really put their mind to it. Sure, it may eat up your time and it can be confusing and hard to complete, but you're given the whole day to do it. It's better than tests and quizzes, damn I hate pop quizzes. However, I actually enjoy homework to an extent and it gives me the practice I need to do better on tests, which I loathe. - MSA33

Completely true.

2 Bitchy popular girls

one day I'm going to "accidentally" spill water on them and watch the 10 pounds of makeup slide off!

I admit that I hate homework, but it's important. You do learn things from it, and it destroys your grade if you don't do it, and it actually is an important responsibility.

Bitchy popular girls, on the other hand, bring my piss to a boil. Technically, I don't get why they are so popular... because everyone seems to hate them.

Thank God I just finished High School... To choose "the worst thing about High School" wasn't really easy. I just hate it! Everything about it. But apparently "Bitchy Popular Girls"is the worst!

Don't even remind me of them... - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

3 Bullies

I'm not kidding, there are two special needs kids at my school that since they know they have special needs, can get away with anything. The two of them are twins as well so they could beat down another kid and take their money and other valuables and then fall to the ground screaming bloody murder, and the kid they bullied gets suspended. They have actually spit, kicked, punched, etc. Other kids and no one does jack. I have a disorders called Tourette's syndrome and OCD, but I would never bully another kid.

The next group of people I have to deal with is the populars. They act like they are kings and queens before the Magna Carta was signed, doing whatever they want when want. There's even this one popular kid at my school who is such a jerk to unpopular kids especially when they are considered different, but when a popular girl is around, he sugar coats it so he can "get some". What's sad is kids like me are put under the "unpopular category because either, were intelligent, ...more

This has made several amazing people in my life so depressed they've considered suicide. I don't see the purpose of hurting people especially when self-esteem is such a fragile thing already. It takes a lot to make me hate something but making the stupid decision to bully earns you a right on that list. For those going through this remember people care about you. Even if it's just the quiet girl who sits next to you in class, someone would miss you immensely if you weren't there any more. So, from a loved ones perspective, suicide is NEVER the answer, and it can get better. Stay happy inter-webers : )

I hate bullies. They just bully folks for their own amusement. It's not funny because some people take it in a serious way. - 23windomt

awwww, jeezz, I'm going to be going threw this problem now... ahh great, high school bullies now, like I'm in grade 8, and next year I'll be in high school,, now the high school bullies? , c'mon gimme a break, lolz... well if I pull off suicide next year... I'm srry, LMAO jkk jk jk... damn it, high school bullies... let's see what happens, lol - SmoothCriminal

You're lucky. In England, we have secondary school instead of the separate middle and high school. if you find a bunch of bullies in year 7 ( equivalent to 6th grade), you are stuck with them till year 11 (equivalent to 10th grade)! At least you can change high school easily but for me it will be very hard (p. S my school sucks).

4 Waking up Monday mornings

Entering the shower with the knowledge that you will soon be subjected with 6 1/2 hours of boredom is like entering the 7th circle of hell. #2 getting dumped. - fireinside96

The first thing that comes to my mind when the
alarm goes off on Monday mornings is "this is like

5 Bad teachers

There are plenty of these at my school. They either have completely boring and unoriginal lessons, disrespect students as if they have no rights, or both.

Teacher tenure should be removed! Who else agrees with me?! This allows all these horrible teachers to get away with their faults without any fear of losing their jobs. SOME OF THEM SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN HIRED IN THE FIRST PLACE! I say what the government does is remove tenure, cause honestly, I don't give a crap if a teacher has been working 20 years if they are terrible at their job. To whoever is reading, I hope you have yourself the best day/night and love yourself.

The worst teachers are the ones that just tell you what to do and not how to do it. My whole maths class is confused because of our teacher. Then she turns around and gives us piles of homework.

I feel your pain! This is my math teacher, and I'm only in 6th Grade. She also encourages us to ask questions, but when we do she humiliates us by saying "Um, you should know this" or something. And she CAN'T TEACH! Like, she goes WAY too fast (I understand it is a GEM class, but still! We're 11 and 12)! She'll be going over slopes, 2 minutes later she's done, everyone's confused as hell, and she gives us 4 incredibly difficult worksheets. I HATE MY MATH CLASS! - Absolite

I have plenty of these in my school, teachers beat the students in a very horrible manner, I remember when a girl in my class got 56 slaps for not putting a comma (, ) in computer programming. - Ananya

Wow. I don't even think it's legal for teachers to hurt students anymore. That's harsh. - Absolite

6 Annoying classmates

Worst with bitchy girls. Those bitchy girls team up with annoying classmates to make fun of poor students. I wanna fight these annoying creatures and give justice to those who are abused by these annoying bullies - ronluna

Die, people. When I was in school, I was getting fed up with some of my classmates. I always think about talking behind their backs so I can enjoy school more. I had fun in the 1st semester, but everything changed when the new semester began. I wasn't picked to answer questions very often, thanks to a nerd who's the female equivalent of Gary Oak. Like she thinks she's better than me. I know more than her anyway, like lemons have more sugar than strawberries, but citric acid makes them taste sour instead. And she says to me everyday:"Smell ya later! ". Plus she gets more liked than me. My mom told me it was because she doesn't want me to be successful. She was right, and I beat her in a spelling bee. Heh heh heh, take that, BITCH.

Lol, I started dying of laughter when I saw it say "Smell ya later". definitely GAry - Absolite

I am fed up with annoying classmates. I am fed up with them because those morons got my class in trouble several times. Some are stupid, some are annoying, and some, you want to show them in their underwear. My classmates in English were just stupid. I wanted donuts, but these dunces ruined this opportunity. I also have to live with stupid people in reading class, as they either made me sit at a different table, annoy me, or make me rage quit. Idiots also make me lose in P.E. activities. I also hated this motherfer who is more lucky than me. She thinks she is better than me, but she is not.

At my school it's worse. I'm in 6th grade, and some of the kids are just perverted. Some kids (actually, a lot) ask for NUDES from their girlfriends. Also, there is this one "popular" girl who likes to take advantage of the fact that she is pretty by shoving her ass in a boy's face. It's awful. - Absolite

I don't really care for most of my classmates anymore. I use to hate them but now it's like whatever because it turns out that they're actually decent people who have no filter. But this one girl in particular makes my blood boil. She's one of those popular wannabe girls and also a tumblr wannabe at that just to fill in some details. She gives me dirty looks, says disrespectful stuff, and just gives me a vibe. I was changing in the locker rooms for gym and I accidentally hit her on the shoulder and she turned around and gave me that one look and I said sorry and she just continued to glare at me and talk crap about me to her friend in "secret". It gets worse but I don't have the time to explain everything she's done and said to me over the past 2 years. I just want to fight her because I know how to fight but I have a reputation to hold up as the good student.

7 Tests/quizzes

The worst is when the teacher calls the names up to the front to recieve the exams, and you can't breathe and your heart is beating because you know you failed it...

School sucks

When you get an A- or below on your test and you're Asian...

8 Access denied websites

One thing that pisses me of about this

-They Block pages that have flash games that are family friendly
-Porn sites are not blocked websites where I am in school districts


Happy Wheels is available... but not Roblox or Minecraft... logic please? - HeavyDonkeyKong

You know the schools do this so students do good in class right? I think that spying on students with Goguardian isn't good but having certain websites blocked so kids can do the right thing in class is important - 445956

Schools can be so strict. In middle school they only blocked sites that were necessary, now in high school, they even block everything on Google Chrome Store. What the hell.

9 Too much responsibility and pressure to do well when all you want to do is have fun

It's true... your college career depends on those 4 years. If my higher education was based upon my performance in middle school... I'd be at freggin' M. I. T. lol - suthrnbell0105

Yeah I'm stressed pretty much all the time and it is awful - LilPumpTheGod

You can only be a teenager once, highschool may enrich the experience of being a teen by surrounding you with friends and peers M. But there is an IMMENSE deal of social, academic, and in some cases sexual pressure. When all you want to do is stay home and watch T.V. your forced to go out and feel tons of pressure. When you just want to go to school and talk to other kids the whole "social ladder" stabs you in the back and dictates who you should and talk to. When you just want to go to a school dance without being pressured by the grinding "tradition" you realize unless you want to be shunned and labeled as uncool you can't say no! And when you just want to hang out with your squad you realize you are failing a class and need to study because you just bombed a quiz. GET THE POINT? HIGHSCHOOL IS TOO HIGH PRESSURE! In middle school you feel social stress, in college you feel academic, in highschool you are presented with both! Like seriously? It shouldn't be like this. Highschool ruins ...more

I seriously feel like passing out when I see my grades, because I feel like I will become a homeless person. Why does college look at how much homework I did in 4 years of high school can't they look at test scores and how many extracurriculars I'm taking or something else. Why aren't 14-17 year olds' allowed to enjoy themselves a little free time instead of studying and finishing homework all night.

10 Teachers, principals, and other school authorities tell students to respect them but they are very abusive

they tell students to behave, keep quiet, but they are busy talking and shouting with each other regarding how to abuse a student. regarding the haircut, they are very strict too but when the security guards is bald and no balds allowed in the school, they should change it - ronluna

That is screwed up. Lucky for me, my school isn't like that and what you said reminds me of a video I saw on You Tube. A 9 year old had a friend with cancer, so she shaved her head to show support. Unfortunately, this got her suspended and I was all like "what? " If I was at that school and had no hair for any reason whatsoever, I would be pissed off if I got suspended for it because that would ruin my record of never getting suspended. - Murvine_Taylor

Today the policeman gave me a stern talking to

13 When people get neglected just because they are different in some way

This does happen to me constantly, even though I'm in good shape, near perfect health, and very smart, but simply because I am shy, serious about school, help out friends when they need me, and don't like "cool" students who purposely make other kids feel bad, I am neglected and treated as an outsider, just because I like to play the good guy.

I have friends in school, but I have barely anything in common with ANYONE. And a lot of times when I try to talk, they keep talking with my other tablemates. I hate it so much and I think I need to learn to be more assertive. - PhoenixAura81

Very true.

I've literally been like this a lot even outside of school, hence I grew up mostly to myself or a lot of times to my parents.

14 Drama

They spread a rumor that I was gay, almost ruined my life till I screamed out in class to a guy "F*** you bitc* step up! " and know people hate me because they think that my EX didn't cheat on me when I found out she made out with another guy and their telling my new girlfriend I'm just using her... Yup life sucks... :'(

Kids commit suicide over drama. Its pretty sad it's kind of like bullying.

I thought I could trust one of my friends with a secret. Next thing I know, half the class is loudly asking me to ask a girl out, when said girl is sitting 3 feet away from me. Needless to say, she said no.

Ohh, my god! I had this "friend" that used to come to my school. There were times when we were cool and others very bad (I'm gonna talk about the bad stuff)

We got into more than 1, 2, and 3 arguments. Whenever I had to deliver some bad news, she would take them way too seriously and have a huge meltdown, especially when I bring up bad news that can be fixed (Example: Trouble with her siblings or being bullied). One time, my dad and I had a little talk about a disagreement her and I had. And he said to stay away from her if the behavior continues.

The following day, she started running up to me and said she needed to talk to me. I told her that I couldn't be near her anymore. And she started to throw a massive fit. Damn, drama sucks :( - ILoveCodySML

16 The popularity list

The whole concept of popularity needs to be destroyed at schools, because no, you don't go to school to be popular, being prom queen does not get you to a college or impress anyone in the real world so, if you're popular, and you're reading this, at least try to befriend a normal kid with a normal life and stop being a fake

I gave up on popularity a long time ago, it would be nice to feel accepted, but the things you have to do to get their are ridiculous and are against my morals

I always wanted to rip that thing to shreds. It is the most pointless thing ever - GoldenRocket

I was only noticed because I was over protective of my friend - LaST_LiGHT

18 Bad words

Once you get in middle school everyone starts saying bad things to one another and it is wrong.

The N-word is literally a nick name in my school! and "F--- you" is now a complement! These kids are so dumb! - Slipperyjack40

Litterally the first day of my time in high school, kids I'd known for years broke out entirely and were swearing like their life depended on it. I don't get it? I swear if I'm in pain or just annoying situations, but these kids were doing three curse words at a time. It was awful.

I hate when the students curse. They think that cursing makes them cool. The students will never say a sentence without cursing. It aggravates me very much.

They're a waste of space. Send them to rehab, not school.

I got in trouble one time because they were smoking next to me when I was walking to class and I got suspended when they tried to give me some, keep in mind I'm an honors student so the five day suspension that made my gpa drop from a 4.5 to a 3.67 from missing class gives me some bias to this question.

When I go to the bathrooms I always smell weed - GatorBoy

I've seen some students smoking weed or vaping at the marketplace just outside of my school, or at parties. First of all, I'm ashamed that many people are fine about this, and secondly, it's sad that these people are basically ruining their future. - ethanmeinster

21 Homophobia

I go to a religious school and thankfully, this doesn't really happen here. Most are accepting of different sexual orientations and genders or lack thereof. Still, I hear kids (mostly the younger ones) joking about it as if it's funny and cool to do so - and I'm like, "STOP." So stupid and horrible, especially when they pretend to be innocent once I confront them

People treat you like a gimmick, like you're a different species. No, I won't tell you how I can do that to myself or how I can disappoint my family like that. Because people who say that need to go away and re-evaluate their own lives.

Also, telling me I need jesus in my life isn't going to change my lesbianism, just saying.

Strange that people think the only way to cure homosexuality is worshipping a 30-something almost naked man nailed to a cross and being whipped by other men...

I constantly have to hear from my "smart" classmates how they think any of the nicest guys in class are actually super gay or bisexual. They usually say "he should kill himself" or they tell a girl in the class to date him so he isn't gay anymore.

22 People with disabilities get picked on

One guy picked on me I have Autism and ADHD so I act different, he got mad at me for wiggling my fingers, and for scaring on of my friends as a joke, he got mad at me lots in grade 10 and once in grade 11 - trains45

I've got autism. People picked on me in 6th grade like crazy! I'm in high school now, but people still talk trash about autism. They say stuff to each other like "stop being autistic". I'm surprised that I survived middle school without committing suicide. Things have gotten a lot better for me. My only problem is fitting in. People don't exclude me, but I don't like how anyone acts anymore. I don't like what makes people cool in high school. I just have a problem with the way the world rotates. - Slipperyjack40

I have autism, moderate depression/anxiety, and ADHD. I'm in 7th grade. back when I was in 4th grade, people rarely picked on me. I guess that's because they felt sorry for me. I never really liked my friends being al baby voice nice to me, and wanted honest opinions. but back then, those were happy times. but it 6th grade, it turned into a living hell, which is why I have my depression. people, have made fun of me and called me "a retarted little *ussy who needs to grow some balls", "whiney". I was kicked, pushed really hard into a locker, given the finger. my 15 year-old brother years ago was tied to a tree with one of his friends and left to rot for for 2 hours till they finally escaped, I was chased into a stall and had my foot pounded to a pulp. the list goes on and on. that's why I have depression. I sometime lie down and think, "why haven't I committed suicide yet? " and then I realize: "it would break my mom's heart, to relive that moment ...more

23 Racism

Bruh my science teacher is white and he teaches at a school where most are asians and he would constantly pick on this korean girl and tell her she's japanese not korean the poor girl even fell into a depression because she thought she was adopted...even my science teacher is a doctor that doesn't mean he gets to accuse someone's race and tell them what they look like

My high school special ed teacher constantly picked on me, the only Asian kid in her class, for no reason at all.

I'm still in high school. But, I do remember having something like this happen to me, here's my story:

Sometime after I started freshman year, I was walking around with one of my friends (in the morning). We came across a group of girls (who happened to be some of her friends as well). I kinda backed away, because I was shy. Then, one of them said: "Why is she shy? Is it because she's Asian? "

Seriously?! Just because I'm shy, it doesn't mean it's because of MY RACE! THIS SUCKS! >:( - Stazemar000

Based on my experiences at secondary school, there were always cliques who picked on (mostly Asian) other ethnicities. One of my best friends constantly got called a 'dirty paki' by this cesspool of racists who undoubtedly adopted half of these opinions from their parents, Despite the fact that numerous friends of this guy had told teachers of these insults, and more often than not they would go off with no more than a measly warning, likely to do it again in future. Racist supremacists suck.

Yeah people should stop insulting Pakistan simply because they are with china - MChkflaguard_Yt

25 Pep rallies

i used to literally get sick at these things i would get dizzy from all the screaming, stinking teenagers. i eventually started skipping them. i would actually rather go sit in dirty school bathroom than go tto them!!!! - luvtoread

I absolutely hate pep rallies with a passion! They are do loud and pointless. I hate when everyone is screaming and dancing. It makes me mad. The cheerleaders are not even hot ( There is even one GUY in it). So me, my friend and only about fifty other kids in the whole school go to the cafe during the Pep rally. We are the smart kids in our school!

I don't think I have pep rallies but if I go to one I would be traumatized. I hate crowds AND loud noises. It doesn't help that people would scream for no reason. - MusicalPony

As a highly introverted person, pep rallies are an absolute nightmare. A lot of the time, they happen at lunch so I can skip them, but sometimes our study hall period will be replaced by a mandatory one. My school is well-known for its overall great school spirit, and it’s no wonder. These kids scream like crazy, and the ones who lead the events even have scripted ones to make the event more entertaining or whatever. I don’t even like my school, and I hate crowds of screaming people, so these are basically hell. Not to mention, overly-peppy people are just plain annoying.

What disgusting things. It's more like a brainwashing ceremony than anything else. Cheerleaders are sex symbols, the music is so loud it gives you a headache and the whole thing is boring and pointless. I hated these things so much-thank god I graduated, no more of this crap! :D

27 Cliques

Oh. God. I hate cliques SO BAD!

So here's how they are divided at my school...

The Jock Guys: All of the guys who are athletic. That's literally the only a way a guy can become popular. By their athletic abilities. All of the girls (both popular and unpopular, with the exception of me and a few others) like them. It's insane. Most of them are mean, and it's EXTREMELY rare to find a NICE popular guy.

The Jock Girls: The girls who are athletic. They don't exactly care about looks as much as some of the popular girls do, but some of them do. They usually are found talking to the popular guys and the other popular girls. If an unpopular girl is actually ATHLETIC, (like me), they will get criticized just because they aren't popular. They won't even be considered athletic, even when they actually are.

The Girly Girls
All they care about is their hair, their clothes, their nails, their purses, and boys. Literally. That's IT. I am actually a tomboy here, so ...more - Minecraftcrazy530

That stinks. My school isn't as bad about this but I do sense some sort of drama/clique thing going on at the school (which I never pay attention to). Yeah at least your school doesn't sound as bad as my school in terms of school spirit, running (during gym class), sports, and "greatness". Literally my middle school shoves the concept of greatness down your throat every single day, so much that it makes my brain want to implode. Also for the announcements why do the sports teams get a special announcement time every day while the other clubs rarely get mentioned. Then there's gym class where every class in an outdoor unit you have to run a lap around the quarter mile long track, walk a lap, then run another lap. Also in like the first month of school I'm pretty sure we ran like 4 miles if adding up all of the times running on the school track and also running a couple of courses just a little over a mile long and today when we had to run like half a mile. Yeah that's my school. - Anonymousxcxc

I was friends with a girl since Pre-K. We were such good friends. We would always talk to each other and sit next to each other at lunch. She would always laugh at my jokes and I'd laugh at hers. Then, in 3rd grade, two new kids came: a boy and a girl. Their names started with an A and a B. My friend's name started with a C. In 4th grade, they realized that and became best friends. My best friend called me a jerk and obnoxious for no reason, I was being super nice. She always hung out with them and I was left behind. They are all nice now but they don't really consider me as a good friend. I cannot wait until I'm in middle school (I'm in 5th). I watched Mean Girls and I like the people there (except the Plastic "leader") and I think the teacher is nice. I can't wait! :) I will get to leave those old friends and get new people.

There is another group in my school that I call "The Group." It's all the people who are really rude and act like they're not and ...more - maddyparrot22

Honey enjoy middle school while you can because next year I'll be going to the level of schooling that I will call The Supreme Fire Nation Terror. - Anonymousxcxc

My clique is so unique it deserves a category of itself! So here's the cliques at my school.

Athletic boys: Most popular guys in the school. Most are nice, well to me. I'm close to being as popular as them but I'm not athletic so I'm not one of them. Some, if them are mean, especially the ones in High School.

Athletic Girls: Some are popular and some are not. Some are girly girls, others just don't even care at all.

Prissy Popular Girls: If your unpopular and you so much as say one world to them, they'll accuse you of hitting on them and get their boyfriend of 1 week to beat you up. They whine about every single little thing! They also have super good hearing too since they tell everyone, especially me to turn their music down. Even when I'm at the lowest volume but still able to hear the music, they tell me to "turn that satanic mess down! " But they put their stupid pop songs all the way up. They never get in trouble!

Nerds: People don't mess ...more - SirSkeletorThe3rd

28 Popular kids

I think outcast kids are the best kind, but I'm a middle schooler, so why am I here? - 445956

Some are popular for the right reasons as in they are respectful to adults and students, they think about their friends before themselves, keep their grades up without cheating, they give advice, they aren't obnoxious/seek attention, and don't start conflict. These are the kinds of students that will be accepted into college and have a good life after high school. The bad kind are the exact opposite of this and life won't look too good for them after high school.

Sorry, but it just seems super egotistical. Double if they whisper to their friends immediately after.

Sometimes nice, sometimes jackasses.

31 Animal abuse in some schools

Animal abuse IS terrible, but where are you going to see it in a school?

There Is nothing worse than animal abuse in any situation, whoever does this and enjoys this deserves to become homeless bums, and burn in hell for the rest of eternity. I'm passionate about wildlife.

"Nothing is worse than animal abuse" Holocaust is better?
I know you love animals, but you gone too far. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Last year I did an after school club where we raised turtles and released them in their natural habitats when they got bigger and it was so nice. I even got to take one home over spring break (there were two named Squirt and Crab Cakes)

I can't stand animal cruelty/abuse. It really shocks me and breaks my heart. I know I'm an animal lover but that is disgusting

32 Bratty kids getting special attention from the teachers

In my English class, there are these boys (and a couple girls) that are pretty mischevious. They talk when my teacher is trying to teach, yet, the kids who make all the noise give us "good kids" look and feel like crap. They get all the attention while we get NOTHING. Some of us (including me) feel like we're invisible or something. There was this one time, when my teacher called on me to answer a question about the book we were reading, but before I could say the answer, some girl interrupts me. My teacher told her to be quiet and marked-off points ( I think it was -5 or something)

In my math class, there are also a couple annoying kids (one of them being a girl). The girl makes way too many comments when my teacher is saying something. She doesn't even listen whenever he tells her to be quiet. - Stazemar000

I am one of the smartest kids in the school, with an IQ of 162. Note, I'm not bragging, because smart kids don't get JACK at my school. No, really, to 95% of the teachers I am practically invisible to the naked eye. Whereas the kids who make all the noise and give all of the other students crap about doing well, existing, etc. get ALL of the perks, and ALL OF THE GOOD GRADES THAT MANY INTROVERTS STRUGGLE FOR! I have a 3.99 GPA and I still get good grades regardless, but the teachers are constantly screaming at me whenever I get tired of the morons in my class not finding an answer, and after that, I am called selfish! I'm not trying to be selfish, all I would like are a few good grades, that's all. If you can relate to this, please like.

P.S. I am also bullied too. Don't feel bad though.

Yes. Teachers give them the time of day and often don't give them punishment. They're just getting attention and annoying the hell out of the other kids!

It remembers me a boy of my class, His name actually means attention & He is the best attention seeker I ever see, He just shows his charm & easily escapes from Punishment. I hate him and excepting me Every girl found him cool - Righteous

33 Teachers that complain about wasting time but give long lectures that waste time

Yeah, so true. My English teacher always goes on about how we are spoiling ourselves and how we should study instead of having fun and how stupid and ignorant we are... Jesus! Have you realised how much time you are wasting? Just get on with the damned lesson! I hate such teachers so much. They are actually doing what they tell us not to do! It makes me so angry, I wanna bash their head in a ' wall!

So true. They complain about wasting time, but they do it themselves with doing lectures. How hypocritical - MangoFruitJuice

My French teacher does that a lot for 3 years.

Teacher :You are wasting a lot of useful time
Me: you are wasting a lot of useful time because you are dragging on and repeating yourself!

34 Annoying catchphrases

Yes like YOLO and laugh out loud - JollyRancher

My friend's catchphrase was "highlight poppin', bodies droppin" and it wasn't annoying at all - LaST_LiGHT

Anyone who says swag and yolo repeatedly should be knocked upside the head with a shovel

Wait a minute! Are you saying there are still people that use that?! - 3DG20

I used to have a lot of catch phrases...

35 Backstabbers

Eh, they were present for a very long time *cough* Brutus *cough* - styLIShT

I had this one girl in school who my friends and I let her sit with us and all she did was complain. the worst thing was that she backstabed us and called me and my friends stupid things. She told people I was loopy in the head. luckily I don't have to see her ever again

I've dealt with loads of those since elementary school, I hope they don't follow me to Bergen Community in 2016.
They also showed up at a production I attended.

My school had a lot of these kinds of people. They are extremely fake and annoying. Such people are also hypocrites, as they tend to point out what other students do wrong but never realize their own mistakes. One girl at my school told me that her friend was "full of s***". She did not realize that she was being just as fake as her friend by secretly saying something rude about her. She also acted polite when she was around me, but it was obvious that she was only pretending to be nice. If I was not so afraid of being rude, I would have told her that she is also full of it.

36 Religious extremists

This girl at my school was trying to force a student to believe in God... In case you have not noticed, America has the freedom of religion. Due to that, I do not care if you worship a potato chip, just do not try to change someone just because they do not believe in the same things as you do. - LostDream258

Ugh this one girl who my sister met (a narcissist that no one liked) was completely insulting my sister's religion just because it was different than her's while getting everything about it completely wrong by saying things like how in this particular brat's view it's apparently similar to Islam (when it's not) during this Girl Scout camping trip (from when my sister was in like 8th grade) or whatever so my sister was crying so she and the other girls in the troop moved tables so the bratty girl told the troop leader that everyone was being rude to HER so the girl actually made my sister apologize for something she didn't do. Yeah basically I hate over religious people who can't seem to accept that other people don't believe in everything that you do believe in. Dear god hopefully that doesn't happen to me this year. - Anonymousxcxc

I am a Jesus freak but I don't enforce but only preach. If you don't believe me fine, Actually the Catholics are the ones being mean to me (not all just those in my school) the Christians and atheists are cool. I read the Bible but a teacher of mine had me sent outside. I was praying and someone said "stand up and pray with us" I said "Don't disturb me I won't pray with you and your catholicism" but then again I was in trouble.

The kids at my school who are jesus freaks and what not seem like they have sticks up their butts and they never have any fun because they are always praying or begging for forgiveness like damn loosen up and go have some fun get your nose out of the bible and go interact with humans who gives a damn if you "sin" you're only a kid once.

Yes yes they will pick on you of your not there religion I am an atheists deal with it

Well, I'm a Catholic Christian, but I will deal with it. :) I totally respect your religion. - Murvine_Taylor

Always happens to me, not that I suck though

Always happens and I'm not the worst

I get picked last, then either one kid showboats the whole game so I don't do anything, or I blow everyone out of the water

38 Anime fans

True I'm not a anime fan but you should like what you like - GatorBoy

I don't like anime but hating someone purely JUST because they like anime is a bit harsh.
If they are a psycho fan or a rude person however I understand - Lunala

Almost everyone that I know of loves anime, I don't have anything against it but they talk nonstop about it, it gets really annoying after a while

I'm going to say it once, and again. Anime High is not like real High.

41 Having horrible teachers ruin subjects you love

I had a horrible sub lots ruined my photography class made me afraid to go there when she subbed, I had her ruin my computer science when she subbed there 2 days, then next she sub in my photography class I was afraid to go there - trains45

Yeah I had a bad teacher kinda ruin art class, and I enjoyed art class - trains45

My grade 7 teacher ruined my gym class made me upset and mad a lot and almost made me hate gym class

When learning devolves into annotating pages upon pages and packets of homework in your favorite subject, your interest can be ruined. There is so rarely teachers who care more about their students then their pay, but when they come buy, it's good to let them know.

42 Crappy WiFi

Mcdonald's wifi

There are like 5 school wifi net works at my school and they are all good except for the guest wifi... which is the one the students have to use - Revrad

Many people are too busy walking around for a single bar, which is why this is pretty low.

My friend once got signal on a hike up a mountain over the summer and yet he couldn't get wifi here. what.

44 Dirty toilets

Someone shat in the soap dispenser, then in the sink, then on the floor. Those restrooms have been closed ever since. If it happens again this year, it has to be a staff member - Haumea

LOL. One time when I was taking a piss in the boys toilets at one of those things that you stand up at, I forget the name of it, the kids next me we're all peeing on each other and it was absolutely disgusting. There was pee going all over the walls and the floor and the kids had pee al over them.( if your a girl I'm just telling you they only have the things u stand up at in boys toilets). It was so disgusting but when someone started to pee on my leg I had to fire back.

At my school, the boys toilets are horrible. There are doors that don't shut (sometimes I've had to tape them shut), missing doors, missing toilet rolls, missing soap, broken hand dryers, and graffiti and poop (sometimes) on the walls.

Toilet flush doesn't work on some on my school. - Lucy1402

45 Fake gangsters who being cap guns
46 Call of Duty / Halo fanboys

These idiots are dominating my year and I get judged just because I play different games. They automatically assume that Mario or Pokémon is the worst game ever, just because it's not a shooter! They think they are the ultimate gaming masters, but they would die in three seconds flat if they played Mega Man.

This was the reason why I hated Call of Duty at some point ( I no longer care about Call of Duty at ALL). - MusicalPony

I don't know what a quad feed is. "Oh, get out of here."
I don't like shooters. "What the heck, those are like, the only good game genre ever."
I like Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy, "RPGs are for wimps."

I don't play either game, but Halo has an AMAZING theme song. - PhoenixAura81

This kid said that Undertale was trash because it lacked blood and violence. What is wrong with this generation?

49 Kids standing in front of your locker

I had students do that I just ask them to move and they did - trains45

Yeah that can be annoying but there are worst things about high school than this! - Evilgangster666

These kids wonder why I say to them "can I have my locker? " in a snobby way. I mean, if me and my friends were blocking your locker, then you would be pissed, too. Right?

I just push them

50 There's always either a really fat person or a really slow group of people in front of you

One time I was going to my locker for 2nd period and the guy in front of me stopped for NO REASON. Like what the hell are you waiting for! I'm trying to go to my locker! Son of a b*tch made me late too. I also hate pep rallys my school ALWAYS has them in the SCORCHING hot heat.

LMFAO THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! Oh, and it's the worst when there's a really, really short fat midget in front of you walking extremely slow. I just wanna walk over them! Slow people make me late to class! - asdfalexia

I was late twice to a class because of these people. If I was late once more I would have gotten a detention. What I decided is to just shove past them and if they give me a dirty look I don't care because I'm more concerned with not being late.

Today was the best day of my life do you want to know why a cliques of girls were standing in the hallway and people were getting late for this group of girls and soon everyone got so frustrated that we all just ran them over some of them were crying "mMY MAKEUP" but we didn't care and do you know what the teacher sent all the girls to the principal office for gang related activity because in my middle school we are not allowed to stand in big groups like thator we will get sent to the principals office.
