When you're growing up and going through the torment that is school, it's easy to forget that teachers at the end of the day are just regular people.
They procrastinate. They dread getting up in the morning. They don't want to go to work and would much rather party the night before and sleep in.
And there are times when they could care less about the homework they've assigned you, even if you did turn it in.
We've all had at least one teacher who hasn't had their crap together, and honestly, it's hard to blame them. With major cities experiencing overcrowded classrooms, and teacher salaries becoming less and less appealing, it's no wonder more educators are finding it more difficult to give a damn when they enter the classroom.
Not that that's an excuse to take an obnoxious amount of time to grade a paper. Like this one teacher who let three months go by and still didn't grade their class' essays.
Or this teacher who did the equivalent of "the dog ate my homework."
Fucking Mrs.Riley in AP COMP when she swore she would have our papers graded after spring break, but instead spilled water all over them and didn’t get them graded until the last week of our junior year. She then blatantly told me she didn’t read mine and just gave me an “A”.— Stevie Beer (@steviecbeer) May 20, 2018
Some professors just never learned to get themselves organized and as a result, their work suffers.
There's no shortage of students who relate enough to the grade-waiting struggle.
This is scary spot on. And we should definitely get them a cake.— abigail (@abigailep_) May 21, 2018
Which is understandable, you go through all of this trouble to do your homework and then you wait, and you wait, and you wait.
Sometimes, teachers don't spite their students by being lazy with their work - they just get straight up savage.
Like this one educator who won't tolerate any tardiness.
There's this teacher who offers up quite possibly the most embarrassing communal pen to whoever forget a writing utensil in class.
Some teachers have decided to give up on motivating certain students, and would rather roast them instead.
The only thing worse than a professor who won't turn in your assignments on time is one who messes up a meme attempt.
Some teachers are so tired of bad behavior, they've resorted to just burning their homework assignments.
Some teachers fail so hard, there's no going back.
At least it's better than being the kid who got pranked by this professor.
Hey, just because you're a teacher, doesn't mean you can't have some fun. And sometimes, that fun comes at the expense of education.
