Teachers are in a position where in some situations they can be most influential person in someone’s life. Unfortunately that can be in either a positive way or a negative way. Some teachers are great, while others aren’t as good as they could be. These Reddit users opened up on the craziest things they’ve ever had a teacher say to them. Check it out!
When I was about 9 our teacher asked the class what we wanted to be when we grew up. One kid said he wanted to be a bin-man (a garbage man, for US readers?). The teacher went into a rant, saying that jobs like these were for the lowest, most unintelligent people in society, and that he should aspire to be better than that. Finally she asked why he wanted to be a bin-man anyway. “Because my dad’s one”, said the kid, by now in tears. (bassolune)
Age of 9, lost my father in a horrific accident. I returned to school a few days later and after attendance was taken the teacher said to me in front of the class “The class got together and sent flowers to your father’s funeral, I paid your share so make sure you bring in $2 tomorrow as I need to be paid back”. She then went on with the lessons. (Tess_Mac)
This wasn’t said directly to me but… In middle school I had a teacher grab me from the lunch table and drag me to the principals office. After grilling me for awhile and telling me I know what I did, they finally revealed to me that the teacher stated she witnessed me suggestively sucking my thumb while staring at a female friend of mine.
I was just biting my nail. (troha304)
