I kind of feel bad about this now, but I remember that way back in my Freshman year of high school in gym class, we were misbehaving, and a substitute teacher totally lost her sh*t, told us to “f*ck off” and walked out.
Wow! That was quite a moment. Of course, a bunch of 14-year-old boys thought it was pretty funny at the time, but now I realize that she must’ve been going through a hard time…or maybe she just had a terrible temper.
Whatever the case, the point is that sometimes teachers say bad things in front of classes.
Here’s what AskReddit users had to say about this.
1. Never had it.
“During English class we were watching Tomorrow When the war began. Those of you who have seen the movie know they start the movie talking about s*x.
The teacher goes, ‘S*x is not that great, I have actually not had s*x’ He’s a full 30 year old man and says that to a bunch of 13-14 year olds.
Those were the days…”
2. That doesn’t sound right.
“Freshman year in high school a classmate called someone a “chode” in gym class.
The gym teacher asked him what that means and the student explained “A chode is a good student”.”
““At least half of you will be dead by the time you reach 20 years old”
To a class of 11 year olds…”
4. Imagine this…
“Teacher was using an example to illustrate a concept. He was a very nice, bubbly man, we all liked him.
He points at a random student and says: “For example, Bob, imagine you’re adopted-”
About half the class cringed as they knew what Bob was about to say: “Um, I am adopted”
You could see the gears turning in the poor teachers mind omgohfuck I can’t say sorry because that implies that being adopted is bad, omgohfuck
The silence was palpable as he tried to think of something to say, he eventually just turned to another kid “….are you adopted?” “no” “Ok so, imagine Steven is adopted-” lollll poor guy.”
5. Oh, man…
“The father of a class-mate died in a motorcycle accident, he went into a corner too fast and crashed into a tree.
A couple of days after the accident (which was the first day my class-mate went to school again), our physics teacher decided that it is a good moment to teach the “speed doesn’t kill you, acceleration does”-lesson. With the example of a motorcycle driving into a tree.”
6. Uhhhh. Creepy.
“He told our whole English class quite seriously that for his 30th birthday he wanted two 15 year old girls to sit on his lap, and he even named which ones.
I don’t know what he was telling us for, maybe he thought we would pressure them into doing it or something.”
7. Good aim.
“New year, new teacher and his introduction was: “If you are loud I will hit you with the chalk”.
We all thought it was very funny but the next day we learned what doom was because he never missed.”
8. It’s Daddy.
“I had a professor that had given us an in class assignment.
He was a sh*tty teacher and we were first year students so we didn’t finish it and he told us to take it home and finish it and when we were done to “bring to me. Bring it to daddy.”
He was Greek and didn’t know the context, but he was the head of the department so we all held back our giggles and left.”
“She read out my name and looks at me and says , “Your parents named you this?””
“I once had a substitute teacher for my health class and he went on this long rant about how r*pe can be justified.
So many people complained about him.”
11. It’s their fault!
“I had an art teacher that got caught drinking. Apparently someone from the previous period told on her.
The vice principal came into our class and told her to come with him. We all heard her yell “they drove me to drink” from the hallway.”
12. Hahahaha. Wow!
“His name… “Harry Balls”.
No .. really.. he was a substitute teacher who wrote his name on the board and said, ” I will give you 3 minutes to laugh, but then we gotta get to work.”
13. An eye for an eye.
“Worst thing and also best thing. History class.
Kid punches the kid in front of him in the back of the head.
Teacher sees this and says, “now he’s gonna punch you in the head and your all gonna sit there and watch because there’s nothing you can do about it”.”
14. Bad teacher.
“Had an English sub.
He was clearly in a hungover state taking naps on an hourly basis. When he is awake he’s not being a good “teacher” he would cuss openly infront of the class, ask us what we were doing (we didn’t know) and one time he was hitting on some freshman girl loud enough for his flirts to be heard by the whole class.
He was later removed for “unknown” reasons.”
15. A line was crossed.
“”I’ll squeeze your balls, little man!”
It was an all guys high school and the teacher was the headmaster/a catholic brother/teacher. He was saying this as a follow up to a kid acting up and being a wise ass.
He says “oh, you think acting up means you have balls?” Kid says “yeah” amd then he responds to the kid with that gem…
Everyone was weirded out and thought a line got crossed.”
How about you?
What’s the absolute worst thing you’ve ever heard a teacher say in front of a class?
