Shocked People Reveal The Most Insane Thing Their Teacher Did That Should Have Gotten Them Fired.

We've all had some pretty bad teachers. Sometimes, a bad teacher may go beyond the normal realm of terrible teaching to do something much worse.

Here, people share things that their teacher did that should have gotten them fired.

1/28. When I was in high school I was the schools student photographer and yearbook editor. Well, I was asked by several administrators if I could photoshop them to make their boobs look bigger. I did.


2/28. When I was in high school we had a series of 'bomb threats' made by bored kids who wanted a half day off school. As a result, we had to do a bunch of lockdown drills. My Spanish teacher at the time was a really sweet alcoholic, beloved by his students. Super nice guy.

So one day we have to do a drill in his class. He looks over the instruction sheet the administration has passed out, then rummages in his desk and pulls out an 8" hunting knife. Holds up the knife with a grin and says, "Hey, if the bombers come in here, it's 30 to one! We rush them, yeah!" No idea why he had that knife in his desk.


3/28. I had a 8th grade english teacher leave his projector up while emailing two different woman very graphically and about how his wife was out of town for the week.


4/28. My third grade teacher told a girl in my class, "No wonder your parents didn't want you."

She was a foster kid. Everyone knew.

What an evil jerk.


5/28. There was a science teacher at my high school who was teaching freshmen at the time. One kid just wouldn't quit disrupting class no matter how many warnings she gave him, so after maybe the third or fourth warning, she very normally walked back to the kid's desk and slapped him in the face. He actually fell out in the floor but got back up and sat in his desk. He didn't say anything the rest of class.

His dad actually worked for the school board, so after school he went back and told her he was going to tell his dad. She replied with, "I don't give a crap what you tell your dad."

6/28. I had a teacher once call me aside in 5th grade and say, "You deserve to get picked on. You deserve it. If you'd just act normal, kids would like you. Maybe you should stop playing with those dumb yu-gi-oh whatever cards and try to fit in."

I will never, ever forget that.


7/28. One of my high school math teachers would look at porn during class. Pretty much all of the students knew that he was doing it, but no one said anything because he was genuinely an amazing teacher and we didn't want to lose him.


8/28. My old science teacher was ex-ASIO (Aussie CIA type thing) and water boarded a kid during class as a science experiment. It was awesome, and now we know why it's so dangerous.


9/28. My old German teacher used to cuss out the principal in German. Best teacher ever, but had no censor. Still working in the school surprisingly.


10/28. Not many illegal things went down by the teaching staff at my high school, except for that one time a teacher slapped a student. The kid in question was an insufferable fool. The type of guy who thought he was funny and WOULD. NOT. SHUT. UP. He'd be the only one laughing at his antics.

The English teacher was known to be pretty strict, so other students egged him on, saying they knew he wouldn't act up in her class. So he went all out.

She didn't do anything aside from the normal sit outside of class and detention routines, but after a month, she just had it with him (story continues on the next page...).

While he was jabbering over her lesson, she stares at him, throws her book down on the ground, marches over to him, slaps him and yells something in very terse Polish. No idea what she said. Probably something about how Hawthorne would not be disrespected in her classroom, I don't know.

Anyway, we all gasp. Collective silence. Someone actually cheers and we all start clapping. Boy starts crying. Teacher walks back to her book, picks it up and tries to resume teaching, but it's not going to work. It takes a couple of minutes for her to calm down, and finally, she apologizes to the kid, to the class, tells us to read on our own and excuses herself.


11/28. Junior year in high school. American politics teacher had enough of this really rude student who would constantly interrupt him while he was talking. He blurts out, "You're so dumb you're going to need a tattoo on your inner thigh saying 'insert here."

She didn't understand the insult.


12/28. My best friend started sleeping with one of our professors (who also happened to be one of our bosses at a research center) in grad school. At my University, this isn't such a big deal and students can date professors. However, she was on his Master's Thesis Committee, meaning that she had grading power over him, which was against school policy. This really frustrated me because I was busting my butt on my thesis, with little guidance, while he did not give a crap and she would help him a lot. Everyone thought he was a genius. They both left at the same time - she got a better position and he went to a different program. But it still pisses me off that he breezed by.


13/28. In year 8 we had a replacement teacher for drama who despite being somewhat of a hippy was not a drama teacher, he was known as a very lazy teacher however.

Anyway, our drama classes were two hours long, his method if teaching us was to play 'games', one of which was called 'quiet'. This game involved turning the lights off in the windowless room and lying on the carpet for two hours without talking.

We played this game 4 out of the 6 classes we had him.


14/28. 8th grade. Have 400+ lb teacher (no exaggeration). If he thought you did something wrong, he'd pin you to the wall and start applying On you until you confessed. Sometimes it was something as little as taking during lecture.


15/28. This teacher would actually drink in the middle of class. Like, literally tell kids to do work then take a hit from a small flask he had in his coat pocket. This was in high-school.

16/28. My principal had sex with one of the guidance counsellors in her office. During school hours. A student walked in.


17/28. I had a Criminology class and the professor stared right at me when describing the average criminal "shaved head, 5"9, muscles, dark skinned". I am all those things. I was also the only non-white in the class. It got weird.


18/28. My first grade teacher would yell at us non-stop; she never lost her job, but they did make her stop using lunch denial as a punishment.


19/28. Professor at my college asked the only Black guy in class if he liked watermelons.


20/28. My 10th grade history teacher, who was known for throwing erasers at sleeping kids or pouring his morning coffee on them.

One day, we were sitting in class, and this other teacher walks in the room out of nowhere (like usual), starting to talk to him about something while he was directly in the middle of teaching class (also like usual). I guess he finally had enough of her interruptions because before she got halfway across the room, he turned to her and said, and I quote:

"Oh, Nussbaum... quit bothering me, and go jump in an oven."

21/28. Coach at my high school smoked weed all the time with the basketball team.


22/28. 11th grade history class. Me and 3 other kids are shooting wasps at each other (a sheet of paper rolled really tight into a small half-cigarette shape and bent in the middle, you fling them using a rubber band and they sting like hell). History teacher was a vet and took no crap. The kid misses me and hits teacher square in the chest. He asks who shot it and kid responded. Teacher made him pick it up, and eat it in front of the class. He chews it for about 20 mins but it was sooo dense that it just wasn't working. Teacher told him to spit it out and write the Declaration of Independence by hand while alternating different colored pens every other letter.

Everyone loves him and he still works there.


23/28. One of my teacher's used to fart on students if they fell asleep during class... Not a fireable offence but should be.


24/28. Once in middle school a teacher grabbed a kid's lunch, took a messy bite out of it, and then threw it in the garbage bin. This was all because the kid was eating his snack before recess instead of after.


25/28. My very pregnant speech teacher walked into class and shouted "Never name your children Elizabeth! Elizabeth is an IDIOT'S NAME!"

Elizabeth started to cry.

26/28. We were in grade 6 in the a first story classroom. This kid wont stop clicking his pen, the teacher asks him several times and he wont quit it.

The teacher is obviously over asking so takes the pen and throws it out the window. After the lesson, he says the kid can go fetch his pen. Kid goes off to find it.

Kid doesn't come back. Small voice floats through the window... turns out, the pen got stuck in the tree outside and the kid is now stuck in the tree with his pen.

Teacher goes out (awkwardly dodging the principal) and proceeds to tell the kid to jump and he will catch him.

He missed. The kid broke his arm.

Kid's mom laughed when she heard what happened and said he deserved it.


27/28. A gym teacher in my junior high, with the assistance of some lackey students, locked a student in a bathroom stall and poured buckets of water over the stall door on him.

The teacher wasn't fired. He was offered early retirement at his full pension. There were no repercussions.


28/28. A teacher at my middle school used to straighten her hair in the bathroom every 30 or so minutes.

Not really illegal, just extremely odd.



Those of us who live in New York live this truth on a daily basis.

Sometimes, you just meet a person who isn't quite all there. It's hard to tell at first, but then you talk with them for a little while and it just becomes abundantly clear if they're two eggs short of an omelette.

The stories of how you find out are so interesting. But yet, they teach us to look for clues when we interact with others.
