Worst Things Which Happened That Ruined School For These Guys. BIG TIME.
I had to pee. Then I asked to go to the restroom. The substitute (full time teacher for another class) said, "You don't have to pee. Just sit down."
After a bit more pleading and begging I just peed my pants. I was 8 and totally mortified. What made it worse is that the teacher told my parents that I should have spoken up earlier and accidents happen.
I still think I should have peed on her desk. (madhatter09)
I think so too!
#12 The Closet And The Shower
When I was in middle school (11-13yo for those of you outside of the US), I had to help put away the equipment after PE. The closet was locked and the teacher said he'd be right back. We had to take showers after PE, because that's what you want to do when you just start puberty is be naked in front of 25 of your friends. This was last period so if you wanted to catch your bus, you didn't want to be late.
So I waited and waited. The teacher never came back so I went looking for him. He got the key. I put the equipment away and skipped the shower. I was barely dressed when the bell rang and I started to leave. The teacher lays into me for not taking a shower. I explained it was his fault. That didn't go over well. He made me take a shower and oversaw the whole thing. I'm sure this is comical to young people now who could imagine their parents outrage, but this was a different time (1980). Parents barking orders at the school wasn't a thing yet. So after the shower he lets me go. I miss the bus and walked home on a cold November day all because this a**hole locked a closet.

Tough times indeed.
A couple weeks into my freshman year, I transferred into a more advanced science class. On my first day in the new class there is a quiz. I asked the teacher if I was exempt from the quiz, since it was my first day. She said no. I did well, especially for not having been taught any of the material. Here's what bugged me: The final question on the test was
"What country is ticket from?" Of course I got it wrong. The sentence doesn't even make sense. She wouldn't give me any clarification during the test, so once it was graded I asked what in the world she meant. Turns out "ticket" is her pet bird, Ticket. For one, capitalize the name of your pet. Also, that's not an appropriate test question. I told the teacher I had no idea that was her bird. She said "Well, now that you know I'm talking about my bird, I'll give you another chance. What country is my bird from?" I was stunned that she thought I was now equipped to answer this question. I wasn't in class to hear her reveal where her bird was "from." I guessed something like Chile. She says "Wrong. It's Africa." AFRICA!? That's not a country. I was so mad.
She also arrogantly proclaimed every so often for the first few weeks if anyone spotted her making an error, they get an instant A for the year. I can't count how many times I busted her in class, but she never stuck to her word.
Last of all, some random girls I didn't even know told the teacher I taught the bird swear words, and I got in trouble for that. I never said a word, much less swear words, to her bird. (Jos1986)
Student life sucks!
#10 When the teacher's wrong
I was in the school finals of some general knowledge quiz/competition. The question I was asked was: "What is the collective noun for a group of Whales?"
I answered confidently: "a pod".
The illiterate bloody teacher had "a school" written on her answer card. Refused to listen when I assured her it was indeed "a pod". Her ignorance cost me the grand title and I was practically in tears (in front of the whole school) at the injustice of it. Everyone then labelled me as a bad loser.
Will never forget it. Still seethe on it from time to time. It happened in 1985. (pawnografik)
We get you man...
#9 Double Standards
A teacher told me I couldn't keep a bottle of water in my locker because "it could be vodka or something."
I told her she could smell it and check. She said, "that's not my job" and that I could just use the drinking fountain.
I asked her if she would use the drinking fountain instead of her mug/the tap in the teachers' lounge.
A girl in three of my classes was allowed by the administration to have her cellphone during classes because her father was dying. I was aware of the situation since it was happening for a weeks and she often had little break downs. One day, in first period, her phone vibrates while the teacher is talking. He disregards that fact that she'll allowed to have her phone and demands she hand it over to him. I believe he said something along the lines of "I'll read it and if it's not your mother then I'm keeping it (her phone) for the rest of the class because it rang while I was talking". Well the girl flips out, starts crying as soon as she sees her phone screen. She said no, she's leaving. This starts a stand off between the teacher and her. He ends up blocking the doorway while still demanding her phone. His logic was if he didn't know it was her mom texting her then he can't let her leave. At this point, she's inconsolable and everyone in the class is screaming at him to let her go. Like "f**k your complex dude, let her go!" and he's screaming back "I'm in charge here!" to the point the class made so much noise that security came in to see what was going on. Security tells the girl just go to the office. Her dad did die that day and she wasn't in school for a month. The teacher had a leave of absence as well and we had a sub the rest of the year. From then on, students were not allowed special circumstances for cell phones and teachers were not allowed to block students from leaving. The real kicker is this was intro to photography and most students were there because we had to take a mandatory elective. (Poosinex)
My teacher lost my finals then made me retake them while making passive aggressive comments about me trying to cheat. 2 weeks later she found my original final on her desk under a pile of papers. (Ty0005)
#6 Banking on Race
We had this multicultural fair at my elementary school and the faculty wanted a Japanese kid to do origami at the Japanese station. I was the only kid that knew origami. I was, and still am, Filipino. So, they had me pretend to be Japanese and do the paper cranes and frogs and s**t. It was just ridiculous. (animatorguy2)
#5 One Sentence
9th grade. Was loading onto the bus in summer school. A kid sat in a seat that a girl wanted. I told him not to worry about her. She proceeded to slap the s**t out of me. As she was rearing back to slap me again I pushed her away. At that exact time the driver gets on and sees me pushing her. We both go kicked out of summer school. I was only going so that I could graduate as a junior. She f**ked up my whole plan for high school. (Ch8s3)
#4 Victim becomes the Blamed.
Last year of Primary School, I was being bullied on a daily basis. One kid stabbed me between the shoulder blades with a compass. Teacher, seeing the blood through the back of my shirt declared that i'd done it myself to my mother :/ (Totally_Tove_it)
#3 No power in words
10th Grade class. Relatively early in the semester, but getting a 90 so far. One assignment was to make a flash animation. There wasn't really a formal submission process, and students just had to show the teacher that the assignment was done. I was the first one to finish. I showed the teacher. He said good. I moved on to do other assignments.
About a week later I got my updated class average, which dropped to 78 somehow. I talked to the teacher, who said he never saw my flash assignment. I argued that I was the first one done, that he even commented on it, and my friend was sitting right next to me when I showed it to. He was basically like "Nope, never saw it."
Eventually got my average in that class back to mid 80s by the end of the semester. But the f**ker should have had a better submission process than "just show me it’s done". (chan_jkh)
I had my person and all my belongings searched on 4/20 simply because of who I was and I was acting "lethargic". The asshole vice principle opened my bag and said it smelled like marijuana (in the pocket where I kept my cologne). Sent to ISS, my home away from home, because they couldn't prove I was high, but, they "knew" I was.
Definitely didn't smoke. Knowing something like this was coming. (jmccarthy611)
Was talking to the guidance counselor about how it was ridiculous to me that a single missed assignment would drop my grade by 20-30 points, regardless of its importance.
She said "just because something is wrong, doesn't mean you should try to change it".
Why the f**k would a guidance counselor give that type of advice to a freshman in high school (sttbart)
