Everyone has a break point. If you have to deal with difficult people at work, you know how hard it is to be calm when it is especially hard.
For one of my classmates in high school, my teacher had a rather funny reaction. She did not stop whining, and she began to really annoy. By chance, the teacher went to his desk, said that he had something for her, and threw a small object on her lap. It was a nipple for a baby. It was lost by the whole class, and, fortunately, she took it pretty well. After that, the nagging subsided for a while.
But it’s Worse for Students.
Not only do they have to deal with common problems at work, they also have to deal with students who have pain in the ass.
Teachers spoke on the recent AskReddit thread to tell how they are taking revenge on troubled children. It’s too cool not to share your stories.
Enabling at its finest.
Once I caught a student who was turning over compositions that I knew that her mother wrote and then her mother clearly plagiarized the composition.
As an opportunity to compose a task for a 31 percent assessment, the student (that is, her mother) was supposed to write an essay of 5 pages with 9 academic sources (the original was an essay on 5 pages with 5 sources). I knew that mother would enslave this, and she did. I hate parents like her.
You’ve missed it.
This child was / is a sociopath. Would do things intentionally to emotionally hurt other people. He lied constantly, even to his mother in front of my eyes, and my mother laughed when she called her.
She always defends her crap. He also blamed my incredibly patient, super sweet girlfriend of the year when she made him throw him at the wall.
In any case, for 17 years of teaching he is the only child whom I even remotely hated. After months of his horror, I began to wait for days when he was absent, to do extra special lessons and activities that were extremely funny, just to let him miss them. Then, when he arrived the next day, I asked the children to write in their journals that they had learned about what they liked in this lesson, just so that he knew that he had missed it.
