Students Share The Funniest Thing The 'Quiet Kid' In Class Has Ever Said
It's always the quiet ones.
The school years of life are trying, emotionally erratic and can often leave scars. Everybody plays their character. Some of the most remembered people are what we all colorfully label.... 'The Quiet Ones.' You know, the kids who never say much either because they feel ostracized or left out or perhaps they genuinely don't care, because they have better things to focus on. Then tend to blend into the background and then one day they shock us all when they suddenly open their mouth to react to the moment. And when then happens, often it is beyond memorable!
Redditor u/LethalCritSteel3 wanted us all to discuss those kids we underestimated back in school by asking.... What was the best thing the "Quiet Kid" has said or done in class?
LOUD & CLEAR!Giphy
Once it was right before winter break and just as the bell was about to ring to end class, our teacher cut in with "Oh, I forgot, you have homework over the break!"
Everyone groaned, and even the quiet kid in the corner let out an "what an a**hole."
Well, teacher heard it and said "What did you say?" to the kid.
To his credit, he put his head up and loudly said "WHAT. AN. A**. HOLE!"
We all stated cracking up and the teacher's face turned so red. I caught up with the kid after the break and his excuse was "the teacher already heard it anyway, I wasn't going to get away with it, so since he asked I answered." TradeMark310
Why thank you.....
I was best friends with the quiet kid in High School. He spoke to me almost exclusively, and quietly enough that others rarely noticed.
One day, the Loud Girl noticed.
"Oh my God he talks? I haven't heard you talk since sixth grade!"
Without looking at her, he leans in real close and whispers something to me.
"He says he only talks to interesting people."
I'll always remember this, partly for the ego boost he gave me, but also because of her reaction.
"Screw you! I hope I don't hear you for another four years!" WryAnimalCord
There was a guy named Phil in my high school psychology class who had pretty severe Aspergers. People were often mean to him because high school, but I genuinely liked him. And while he was very quiet, when he did speak, I thought he was hilarious. One day my teacher was jokingly giving me crap about protecting my sensitive information. I yelled out my social security number extremely quickly, almost in gibberish. Phil repeated it back verbatim and told me he was going to steal my identity. Then he put his cape on and ran out of the class room. I hope Phil is doing well these days, he was awesome. carolinav13
More of the Same....
Teacher: "Now even though clones are the same genetically they may come out differently. If we cloned James here his clone might have more access to-"
Quiet kid: "friends."
Teacher doesn't even argue and just looks sadly at the kid. Not as extreme as others but still completely unexpected. super42695
My friend decided he hated the quiet/weird kid. He wasn't super quiet but he didn't have any friends. One day my friend kept throwing those tiny chips ahoy cookies at the back of the quiet kids head who was sitting by himself at lunch. Quiet kid picked up one of the cookies, stood over my sitting friend, and smashed the crap out of that cookie on my friend's head. It was amazing. ltrain228
Not your cup of tea....
Not in school, but I teach middle-to-high school kids (13-17) how to umpire baseball games. There was one kid, 13 years old, who was very quiet, reserved and shy and I thought, "This is not the vocation for him." A week later I swing by the field to evaluate him and see if I can help him with anything. I arrived about 5 minutes after the game started and I could hear loud, confident and definitive calls coming from this kid. I was floored. His mom came up to me and said that becoming an umpire has completely changed his personality. Kennsing
Don't play with fire....
6th grade science class, teacher was out of the room and we were messing around with hotplates.
While messing around one of my classmates burns his hand pretty bad on a hot plate and has to go to the nurse.
Right after he leaves the room, quiet kid enters and casually says "smells like burnt flesh in here" and just sits down like it was nothing.
Everyone turned and just stared at him. sikysik
There was a girl who went the entirety of middle school never speaking a word unless absolutely necessary. One day the class was being rowdy while the teacher was out of the room and in the raspiest, deepest voice ever yelled "SHUT UP!" We all shut up. Hydracorvus
Seventh grade, new kid named Nick started school halfway through the year. He sat next to me in English class and didn't say anything ever. One day, we were reading poems out loud and critiquing each other. One sorry fella read his, and every line started with 'if I was a bird.'
"If I was a bird, I'd live in a tree. If I was a bird, I'd fly to school. If I was a bird..."
A few people offered polite criticism. The teacher called on Nick for his opinion, and he said, "if I was a bird, I'd poop on all of you."
He got kicked out of class and I still laugh every time I think about it. We became friends and he was actually a pretty nice guy, I think he just couldn't resist making that joke. irwinlegends
And Stewart's if you're lucky!Giphy
This one kid in high school said he wanted to go to Harvard, and this quiet dude in the back of the class said "Harvard? No. Stewart's maybe." Stewart's is our local cosmetology school. Whole class lost it.
Good on you Kid.
Korean Kid in Canada, socially awkward, didn't speak english very well, physically not coordinated playing any sport even running. That was until we were on a field trip and at lunch we went to a place with Dance Dance Revolution. It was like the videos, playing on both pads, hands on railings, blasting the game to oblivion setting high scores only to beat them. He had the entire leaderboard before we left, first time I saw him smile. One of the most impressive things I have ever seen. trumpsnorthernwall
I remember going to JR high in this small hick town in Texas while i was on probation (thats a long story). Had a quiet kid who was actually really popular, not bullied at all like most quiet kids. Anyway, I was new, had only been going to the school for about a month when this happened. We had a substitute teacher for one of our classes. She was doing a quick roll call and got to his name.... "Piojos." She said "Thats an interesting and beautiful name, what does it mean?" he said "lice." There was dead silence and confused looks all around. This kid had been going to this school since kindergarten (small town), and had ALWAYS gone by Piojos which was his nickname. Nobody had a clue what it meant, let alone that it was't his real name. All of his paperwork at the school had to be updated and everything. I thought it was hilarious. TheDirtSyndicate
There was a fly in the room, he threw his pencil straight up and SKEWERED the fly and the pencil got stuck in the ceiling, it was those really weak plaster tile things but it was the coolest thing I've ever seen. I wish I could go back in time and record it. annon6969420
The Show Must Go On!
Classmates used to throw crumpled paper balls at her every day because they knew she wouldn't react. One day she started picking them up, spitting on them, and throwing them back. The teacher just smiled and watched. yolodgaf
The quiet kid in my class was sorta bullied by this kid who had a cleft chin. One day the cleft chin guy insulted the quiet kid, and the quiet kid came back with the insult "is your mouth so filthy because someone f**ked you in the chin?" It was 6th grade and the whole table (we were seated as groups) busted out laughing. It was a dirty joke, so check, and it was aimed at a bully, double check. He became known as the "chin f**ked" kid, which was hilarious to us 6th graders. AshDinges
He was the typical quiet, good kid who always made good grades. He was also the best drug dealer at our school. Since all the teachers saw him as this innocent angel, he never once got caught. Wh00pity_sc00p
My friend was the quiet kid. In high school drafting class, back when drafting was done on paper, there was another kid harassing him from across the room. He took his t-square (about 2 feet long, made of wood, sharp edges) and whipped it across the room, hitting his harasser square on the side of the head. The resulting head wound required several stitches. d0gf15h
When I was a kid I was obsessed with the Simpsons, and one day I kept narrating everything in the DuffMan voice "Duff Man says, OH YEAH" etc.
Eventually the quiet kid next to me stood up and screamed "Shut the hell UP! I don't give a f**k what the Duff man says!!!"
He got in trouble and I didn't, cause the teacher hadn't heard any of my duff man quotes. I still think about him sometimes. I'm sorry man, I was being so annoying and you didn't deserve to get in trouble. wavybranches
A girl that used to sleep during class went to the director office because there was too much noise in our philosophy lecture.
Next class right after she started sleeping and the "Quiet Kid" woke her up and warned her he wasn't going to let her sleep ever again.
The British Way....
My wife told me of a really really quiet kid in her class. No one ever heard him speak because he has some sort of mental thing and the teacher knew not to call on him. The last week of school this kid finally speaks. 100% British. This is in the cornfields of the midwest.
Leave Britney Alone.
We're in health class, on the topic of domestic abuse.
Somehow the subject turns to how Britney Spears received backlash for abusing her kids
Kid in the back says, "Probably because she hit her baby one more time."crabpropaganda
The BP Boys!
One time we had a huge man for a guest speaker and when he arrived he was eating a foot long and his excuse was he missed breakfast and the quiet kid muttered "I doubt that!"
Almost exactly like from trailer park boys.
Edit: for anyone who hasn't watched trailer park boys I highly recommend it! aidantradingcs
We had a kid at our high-school who refused to speak for the entirety of our high school career, even if a teacher called on him. The day we graduated he spoke for the first time. His reasoning for his four years of silence was "just because I could." ohhh_hey
Quiet kid in my theatre class, there for the crew type jobs. Our teacher asks us questions daily, and the days question was "What's your favorite Easter candy (or normal candy if you don't celebrate)?"
One kid said chocolate bunnies, and the teacher asked what they liked it filled with. Kids chimed in with stuff like, "Peanut Butter!" or "Marshmallow Cream!" But this girl just says "Organs." In the most monotone voice imaginable. _blehhh_
My sister told me about a quiet guy that asked to go to the bathroom but the teacher refused and so just stood up and peed himself in class. Drum-Major
Ultimate power move. GooseNGander
The air is Choking...
I was in a marketing class once and the instructor put up a slide with advertisements for Axe body spray. He asked the class "what do you think this product is for?" and the quiet guy piped up and said "Birth Control." beakerbrains1785
The dorky short pudgy kid was being bullied by the really popular class jock. Dork rushed the jock, pulled his shirt over his head and began beating him pretty good hockey style.
The jock actually transferred schools the next year. Not sure if it was because of that or what but he wasn't popular anymore. Reddit
Geometry teacher was bragging about how well he drew circles and going on about how one day he would draw a perfect circle. He asked us what would happen if he drew a perfect circle.
My friend, a sweet, quiet girl says rather loudly "You die." Can't really remember the reaction of the class, but I laughed and the teacher looked totally crushed. MorbidMunchkin
We all Die.Giphy
A little short blond girl with a really high pitched voice read a poem she wrote about how death is unescapable and everyone will die. tortsys
In the last semester of senior year, we were assigned a pass-fail essay. If we made any grammatical, stylistic, or formatting mistake, we would fail. It was traditional for the seniors of each year to write and bomb said essay, and the teachers would never stop gloating about how impossible it was.
The quiet kid in my class wrote a perfect essay. Kangaroodle

People Break Down The Most Disturbing Wikipedia Pages They've Ever Come Across
Every now and then, who hasn't found themselves falling down a Wikipedia rabbit hole?
Even if the sources of information found on the page are dubious.
This doesn't stop people from using it as a quick source of information when necessary.
And with links to other pages readily available, people often find themselves learning information which was a far cry from their initial search.
Gaining information that these same people would no doubt be much better off having never learned.

Wikipedia can be an endless source of information.
At least 80% of which you would probably be much better off not knowing.
The most surefire way of hurting someone is not by physically attacking them but rather by using words.
Indeed, saying something to someone you know will deliberately hurt them will leave a far more lasting impact than any scar or wound.
Petty name-calling or completely false accusations are fairly easily brushed off.
Then there are the things people say to others which can simply never be forgotten, and no amount of forgiveness will ever make them forget.
Words that are so harmful, or information so traumatizing, that the only way to describe it is "f*cked up".
"What was the most f*cked up thing someone said to you?"

"Many years before that."- Remk0h
Placing Blame Will Never Change Anything

They say actions speak louder than words.
But some words leave a much more lasting scar.
Do you have any to add? Let us know in the comments.
People are attracted to who they're attracted to.
We really can't control what revs our engines.
Everybody has a type of what they like in another person and what they don't.
Well, most people do.
There are a rare few who like anyone and anything.
One big attraction issue is height, particularly when it comes to dating apps where people can exclude certain heights.
Redditor xanzznax wanted to hear from all the guys who have been unceremoniously turned away because of height, so they asked:
"What is the best response to 'I don't date short guys?'"
I just like to be the shorter one. Sorry.
But... I'm the small spoon.
NibblesJim Carrey Conan GIF by Team CocoGiphy
"Bite her knees."
"Couldn't reach, went for the ankle instead."
No Hard Feelings
"When on Tinder I wrote my height because I know women have preferences (and some dudes will ridicule the tall woman, short man relationship)."
"When I matched with taller women who also wrote their heights, I would always ask if they where ready for this kind of long distance relationship. They always responded with a laugh, and if they didn't want to date, no hard feelings, they don't owe me anything."
"Adding in a non self-deprecating joke is helpful because it implies you know your height & that some women have preferences but you're still confident and you haven't made it your identity. It shows you have a sense of humor which is very attractive."
"Some shorter people have an insecurity complex and this is what gets in their way of dating compared to the actual height, and when they're like this they're typically unaware that it's their personality that's doing them in but blame it on the numbers."
Is what it is...
"If a woman says I don’t date short guys it’s understandable, a man might feel a bit insecure. I’m not short but I’m skinny and I’ve had many women say things about my size and I’m still a bit insecure about it. I don’t let that insecurity become a problem anymore. I’m of the mindset that I can’t control how I feel, but I can control how I react to my feelings."
POOFGIF by VPROGiphy
"Laugh loudly, disappear with the use of smoke bomb."
If we could all just "Poof" away in difficult situations.
WarningFootball Yes GIF by State FarmGiphy
""Hang a 'you must be this tall to ride' sign around her neck."
"Exactly, if that's their preference, move on."
"Ironically, I've never been 'rejected' in this way by a woman I asked out. Only women I haven't asked out. I have had women tell me they only date tall men or they couldn't date me because I'm short, but it was seemingly random. Like, I hadn't asked them out or shown interest. It's actually kind of hilarious."
"Short guy here, I'm 5'4, I used to get rejected by taller girls a lot, my favorite way to deal with it was just to say thanks for being honest. For some reason they would later introduce me to their friends who were maybe my height or something. A lot of them said that when you handle it like an adult its very attractive, and while they might not like short dudes, they def have a few friends who do."
"Because disliking short guys, tall girls, skinny guys, fat girls etc... is at the end of the day a matter of personal preferences. No matter how much you cry, scream and sh*t yourself about how unfair it is, it won't make you attractive to that person. Just move on with your life and find someone who'll love you for who you are."
Leave it...Amy Schumer No GIF by Saturday Night LiveGiphy
"I dated a guy who was like 5'6" or something (I'm 5"4'). It super wasn't a problem for me in and of itself. What was a problem was that HE kept BRINGING IT UPPPP!!!"
"All you short guys out there, I always found it EXTREMELY attractive. There are plenty of women who do. So rock the shortness, someone out there is admiring the cut of your gib!"
Be calm in who you are.
Do you have any similar experiences? We'd love to hear about them in the comments.
People Confess Which Professions Attract The Absolute Worst Kinds Of People
Everybody needs a job.
But some colleagues can be an issue.
And some careers and jobs bring about those that have work ethic issues.
So what do we do?
We make it work, of course.
We pray and hope everyone will do their best.
Redditor Glaurung1536 wanted to discuss the people we all work with, so they asked:
"Which profession attracts the worst kinds of people?"
Some jobs are the worst. So maybe it's not always the people.
Bad InfluenceSchitts Creek Comedy GIF by CBCGiphy
"Ok so not really a profession but… there is a certain subset of musicians who are also wannabe influencers… particular people who are very on twitter. so back-stabby and clout hungry."
"I’m a casino dealer. People losing money brings out the worst qualities in them. Especially when I deal high limit games. Plus the pit boss/supervisors won’t throw a person out who is literally spending thousands. Doesn’t matter what they do or say. The casino doesn’t want to lose those kinds of patrons."
"They’re catered to. They can be so awful to the dealers. The job has made me look at humanity in a completely different light lol."
"Pro relationship tip: Bring a date to the casino and see how they treat the dealer if they’re losing. You’ll see what kind of person they really are. I have about 10 years of experience in the industry."
"Stockbrokers. I have some friends who are stockbrokers. I love them, but man, they are some bullsh*t artists. And not like, 'Oh, they're a good salesman, and could sell you anything,' No, it's like they make sh*t up as they go along and try to sound confident in what they say."
"I have met a couple people who were successful, lifelong stockbrokers. To be a successful, lifelong stockbroker, you actually have to like what you do. They all had crazy eyes. Each and every one."
"Tow truck drivers. At least 80% of all the tow truck drivers I've met have been felons, and about 98% have been shady d**kheads."
Tow truck drivers are definitely gruff.
Bouncedargentina deal with it GIFGiphy
"Bouncers. I swear those people are always looking to create trouble so they can exercise their right to kick a**."
"Former bouncer in my youth, and I can 100% confirm that most of the drama we were in was caused by the two biggest guys that just wanted to f**k with people and brag about it while we were having our after-shift drinks."
"Absolutely lifeless humans. Audio-visual bottom feeders with a camera, searching for scraps and the next payment. Not only does their profession provide something that is arguably valueless, but the means to produce it is abominable. Predatory mannequins that need removal."
Sell. Sell. Sell.
"Pyramid scheme. Property agents."
"I have had a few friends that have become realtors later in life. The ones that stayed with it, it totally changed who they are. After a few years they are hardly recognizable as the same people. Vein, shallow, and 100% of the time they are in character and trying to sell."
"I thought I wanted to be an architect… but then I met a bunch of architects. And architecture students. And architecture professors. And they were pretty much all A-holes. It was weird. I mean… how could it be so consistent? But there ya have it."
"I used to teach in a program that often fed students into the world of architecture."
"Every semester I would orchestrate one charette where I would bring in architects to critique student work. No matter how much coaching I did (to both visiting architects and students) students would feel crushed by the feedback. There were almost always tears."
"I often hear back from students that it was the most impactful part of our work together."
Hands UpSuper Troopers Police GIFGiphy
"Law enforcement - double-edged sword, because it attracts the best and the worst."
"The best in people who want to help, protect, and do good. The WORST in people who want to exact authority over people. Power-hungry a**holes who are insecure and have short fuses and low tolerance for defiance. If you can't handle someone defying you without losing your sh*t, you shouldn't be a cop."
So many jobs full of questionable people.
