So I’m in science right now, and I am exceptionally bored. We just finished doing our topic test on the human body, and although I now know much more about the rectum than I ever wanted to, there were still questions on the test that I had to guess at. For some reason, teachers like to ask us about things they never told us about in the first place.
So, in recognition of that, here is a new list.
Things Teachers Do That We Wish They Didn’t Do
1. Give us assignments. Late.
I know assignments are basically your whole job. I get it, I do. But when you give us a week to study for a big exam, or 8 days to complete an assignment, we get a little tetchy.
We are like Boy Scouts. We are big fans of being prepared.
*my science teacher is telling me that the one I guessed at required lateral thinking. I got it wrong.*
2. Ask invasive questions.
Such as, ‘why are you taking your bag to the bathroom?’
I’ve gotten his question more than once. Sometimes, a teacher will realise and apologise. That’s totally cool, thanks for that.
BUT PLEASE DO NOT STARE AT ME WHILE THE CLASS STARES AT ME, ALL SILENT, WONDERING WHY I COULD POSSIBLY BE TAKING MY BAG TO THE BATHROOM.
I don’t want to go into graphic detail (and you might know how graphic I mean), but I will do it if you keep gawking at me.
3. Dad Jokes.
Please, Mr Science Teacher, if you are reading this, stop. It’s not funny. I’m still annoyed that you lost me a dollar.
That ‘lost a dollar because of Mr Science Teacher’ story tomorrow!
