Teachers Share The Moment They Questioned Their Students' Intelligence
Teaching is a VERY stressful career to pick. It's not just about needing to know material and confidently deliver it to a classroom of students, but it also accounts for a little bit of making sure they don't do anything stupid during the school day. And the students in this Reddit post, well, let's just say they aren't exactly teacher's pet.
Reddit user 12345burrito asked:
Teachers of Reddit, what was your "how are my students this dumb?" moment?
Definitely not a fruit.
Me: I'm thinking of a fruit that is yellow and very sour!
Student: Chickenpox!- SnapesDrapes
"One of my 16 year old students asked, while starting a multiple choice test, if it mattered what letter he chose."
"I just stared at him."
"Sometimes there are no words."- Happy_Birthday_2_MeGiphy
50% is generous.
"Not a teacher, but was helping my friend who's a TA go over some first year essays."
"It was an essay about video games, and aside from the format being nonexistent, one of the first sentences was something along the lines of 'there are many examples of video games, such as the Wii and PS4 and Zelda'."
"Unfortunately, she wasn't allowed to grade any papers below 50%."
"He got a 50%."- icntread
Not a good example of a student.
"I asked my students to write a sentence and give an example."
"One of the students (age 12/13) asked 'what's an example?'"
" Actually really hard to explain."- askerman2000
Ah yes, the mythological dinosaur.
"'Are mermaids real?'" followed shortly by "'I don't believe in dinosaurs'."
"She was 16."- MooshanGiphy
"Don't know if this counts, but I was a TA for a semester in grad school (never again)."
"One student submitted this paper I will never forget."
"Basically, the author was wrong because the student found the argument 'boring'."
"In explaining the author's argument, he got most points wrong and then proceeded to say he had a better argument."
"His argument WAS the author's argument."- ontologyisrad
No. No they did not.
"I have a poster on my wall that says something about not believing everything you read on the internet, and it attributes the quote to Abraham Lincoln."
"Student said, 'Wait, did they have internet back then?'"- whateverreddit88
That was just a bad decision.
"I teach swimming lessons and lifeguarding courses."
"During one, I was trying to teach them CPR and instead of showing them first, I told them to show me what they already knew about it."
"I then proceeded to observe 15 16-20 year olds do the weirdest stuff to those poor training dolls."
"My favorite though was the kid who did a two foot jump onto the chest of the dummy."
"The dummy slid out from under his feet like a cartoon banana and he landed on his rear end on the pool deck."
"Good times."- masterroadtripperGiphy
Process of elimination.
"A classmate of mine in elementary school had this exchange with our teacher:"
"What's the answer to this [multiple choice question with 3 choices]?"
"I don't know."- gunnyfreak
Sounds like they were trying to get out of writing a paper.
"Three weeks into writing a research paper."
"'Okay today we'll continue writing the body paragraphs of the essay'."
"Student: 'What essay?'"- TheRedMaiden
An accident waiting to happen.
"In the same class hour, the same student not only tore apart a pen and covered himself with ink, he pulled the spring apart and clamped it down on his tongue."
"It cut him so deep, he couldn't get it off."
"He them somehow managed to dig a pencil into his hand and then the lead broke off inside him."
"It was like every moment I looked over, he had hurt himself in another way."- AzthiothGiphy
"I wasn't a teacher, but when I was a senior in high school, a junior in my newspaper class thoughts that women produced breast milk for their boyfriends/husbands to drink while having sex."- omglookawhale
"Taught really, really, really, remedial math in NYC High School."
"Always looked for reason for students incorrect answers to help them understand."
"One student gave the answer '2' to a question that in no way could come to that result."
"Going through few more papers, same question, same answer appears."
"While handing out papers next day, I casually asked one student how he arrived at the answer '2?'"
"Response: My teacher, that phrase always meant they were referring to their Middle School teacher, always said to guess if I didn't know the answer, but don't guess the first answer because that's probably not right."
"Is it apparent to you they are talking about taking a multiple choice test here?"
"Well, boy genius has 'translated' this bit of educational nonsense into guessing '2' for anything he didn't know."
"Never bothered to ask the second kid!"
"BTW, I had finally decided to give only True/False exams, and partial credit."
"Still couldn't get passing marks for most kids."- saguaro_48
Wall phones? Really?
"Watching a video about dinosaurs."
"A 13 yo asks 'how did they get video of real dinosaurs if they are all dead?'"
"Same girl also wanted to know how Mayans communicated with each other if they had no cell phones or 'wall phones' as she called them."
"And my evaluation and raises depend on these kids."- BikerJediGiphy
Yes. Yes it did.
"Not a teacher, but a witness to the face mine made which was definitely, 'how are my students this dumb?'"
"It was 7th grade Lit and we were reading through The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank."
"We had discussions throughout and the teacher would have us write a summary of what we had just read before class ended."
"When we were done with the book she did a slide show of pictures showing the attic they were in and the secret entrance."
"About halfway through these pictures we hear a boy in the back go, 'wait a minute. WHOA! This really happened?'"
"She stared at him for a very long time."- kyle-and-karens-kid
I should have kept my mouth shut.
"Not a teacher but once I asked what a keyboard was, in a computer class."- GMAI72Work Typing GIF by MOODMANGiphy
"I'm not a teacher, but I've got a couple of good ones."
"8th grade: We were having student-teacher debates in a mock-up of labor unions."
"Half the class were teachers, the other half were students."
"In this particular incident, we were arguing about whether students should receive harsher punishments for swearing in the halls."
"The debate was going along pretty well, until one of my friends, who was leading the opposing side, and I'll never forget this, said, 'Well, you hear people dropping [N-words] in the halls all the time-'"
"She quickly realized her mistake, but everyone else, including myself, just kind of pointed and said ;OHHH!!!'"
"The debates were brought to a quick end after that, but I must have been in hysterics for the rest of the period."
"10th grade: We were in biology having a discussion about animals and the reproductive cycle."
"Another one of my friends literally didn't know chickens mate."
"She even tried to say that she just thought that chickens laid eggs randomly."
"I was probably in hysterics for a good while afterwards."- Illustrious_Spirit91.
Someone who clearly shouldn't be teaching
"I’m not a teacher by I was in his class."
"One time a guy in class didn’t know the answer to the equation, so the teacher gave him hints, after so many hints he still couldn’t come up with an answer, to this day I still remember his reaction, the teacher got so angry he literally called the poor kid an [R-word]."- TheSxberDude
It's what we used to write with, way back when
"On a regular basis, my freshmen students cannot work a pencil sharpener."
"It all started with a regular, old school sharpener screwed onto a counter."
"But, within days they broke it."
"So, I bought an electric powered sharpener."
"I always get a 'Mr., the sharpener isn't working'."
"Me: "what's the problem?'"
"Usually a) lead stuck inside b)its clogged up from all of the pencil waste."
"In either case they always ask 'what should I do?'"
"My response is the same every time, 'I don't know. Figure it out.'"
"They never do and put the sharpener back down."
"Usually, resulting in them borrowing a pen from a classmate."
"It's both ridiculously hilarious and pathetic."- ElZarigueyapencil crank GIF by shawy animationGiphy
"Not a teacher, but a student."
"I probably spent more time laughing in my high school American History and Macroeconomics classes than I have in the rest of my classes combined."
"My classmates would often spit out the stupidest questions or remarks."
"Here are some ones that stand out in my mind."
"In my American History Class, the teacher asked if we knew why the Phoney War happened."
"A student raised his hand and said "Because Hitler wanted to take his men trick-o-treating.”.
"The teacher passed it off as an obvious joke and moved on, but something tells me he may have been serious'."
"I forget the exact context behind this one, but a student once asked 'Are you talking about the Pacific Ocean or Pacific Continent?'.
"I have no words for this one.
"A student once asked 'Who wrote the Truman Doctrine?' as a question."
"Ignoring the obvious stupidity of that question, the teacher literally just said the answer ten seconds prior."
"We were talking about Obama's presidency up to that point a couple months later, and the same person asked 'who wrote Obamacare?' as if he wasn't in double digit age when it was recent news.
"The teacher was introducing our Vietnam War unit."
"He said that to understand the Vietnam war in full, we would have to have a brief conversation about geography."
"To that statement, a student interrupted his train of thought with 'Aw, I hate math', as what seemed like a genuine complaint."
"In my Macroeconomics Class, the teacher was talking about the first writing assignment we would have to do."
"He said we shouldn't write in contractions on his papers."
"It's a grammatical thing."
"A student responded with 'like when having a baby?' when the teacher said that."
"Like what the f*ck was he thinking."
'Which line is the demand curve?'."
"This would probably be an okay question if we were just learning about supply and demand, if the graph wasn't labeled, or if the graph was mislabeled, but it was April, and the graph was fully and properly labeled."
"Mr. Pongress and Dr. Costello weren’t particularly outstanding teachers for any reason, good or bad, but years after I had them, the amount of stupid questions and remarks they received from our classes alone made me feel a little sorry for the things they had to put up with sometimes."
"Even though I was usually in a laughing fit after the remarks were said."- TheTrueBrawler2001
Thievery at it's sloppiest
"When marking assignment and i noticed a student has copied from another, word for word without making the slightest effort to paraphrase."- writing-tips.
"My students tried turning in plagiarized papers."
"Unfortunately they're so dumb that they neither bothered changing the file name or paraphrasing the content."
"I think almost 50% of the kids in class sent me the same paper over and over again."
"Spelling mistakes and all."- Slaisa
Did you really think I wouldn't notice
"I’m a university student interning in a 6th grade classroom."
"Caught a kid cheating on his test who had THE TEXTBOOK WIDE OPEN in the glossary, while his test paper was on his desk."
"There was another kid the same day who didn’t do his homework so he began copying answers from a friend while the teacher went to the restroom."
"I ratted on him as soon as the teacher came back."
"What’s hilarious about both of these is that somehow the kids thought I wouldn’t notice and/or care if I saw them."
"Like y’all, I’m in school to be a teacher."
"I need to get on Ms. H’s good side in order for that to happen."
"That means ratting on your cheating a**es."
"But I’ll gladly continue to let the kids believe that I won’t notice - sometimes it’ll pay for them to think you’re dumb."- H8rsH8Frustrated Ryan Gosling GIFGiphy
You can likely pass by just showing up... or not.
"Not a teacher but for sure one of those stories."
"So our math teacher at the end of the school year gave us an exam with everything we had during the year."
"Everyone failed except for two students."- ItsMeLyz.
I can't with this one.
"I'm not a teacher but when I was 13, someone in my class asked the teacher how to spell DNA."- greywolf_18
I think we all can agree that teachers deserve way higher pay.

So be vigilant with your wallet.

"Donating to rich Twitch streamers. I’ll probably never understand why people do it."
"I remember watching one guy drop $60k to Ninja. I was making 30k a year at the time, this guy drop double my salary in one stream."
"Credit Card interest."
"When I first go a credit card I used it only when I was short on cash, but it ended up me throwing money at stupid things because I knew I had a credit card to fall back on if I needed it."
"Now I use my card for the points, and I pay it off about every two weeks. While I'm still not great at adulting, at least I figured out this part."

"The $50 scratch-off lottery tickets you can buy in Iowa."
"I used to work for the VA lottery. I got to see the numbers, the payout was only about 20% (if that) of profit for scratch-offs. Slightly higher for the draw games. But print-n-play was almost 1-1 for payout vs profit. Don't know how it is now or how other state's payout margins are, but print-n-play is where it's at if you're gonna play anything."

"Buying cheap crap you have to replace."
"My dad once told me to not spend excessive money on tools at first. Buy them for dirt cheap, and learn which tools you really need. And when they break: replace them with quality ones. Buying pro-grade stuff you don't need is wasted money."
Spending a little extra can go a long way.
Cheap doesn't often equal quality.
FlexCostume Clothes GIF by Big Brother AustraliaGiphy
"Buying ridiculously expensive clothes to flex."
"Clothes are a two-way issue. Good clothes last a long time and the price is worth it for the comfort on top of that. But some clothes are 100x the price and 1/10th the quality. So there is a fine line here."
Pay to Lose
"Pay to win games."
"I played a lot of mobile games with in-game currencies. I have never spent a cent on these games. Why would I spend hundreds of dollars if I can enjoy the game and learn how to play even if it's slow? And many items don't even help you at the game. It's just skins or titles that only show other players how stupid you were to pay for a free app."
"Gold Food, or more accurately food that is covered in something called gold leaf. In my eyes, food is worth buying if they provide a great amount of nutrition for considerably good prices. After all, you probably avoid paying 50 million dollars just to buy a few molecules that are useless to your health and needs."
"And then there's gold leaf food, sure the food looks fancy but at the cost of a ludicrous amount of money! And with the gold having no usable nutrients at all, it is just not worth it to buy such expensive food for a relatively small amount of nutrients."
"For instance, Industry Kitchen (hopefully that's the name of the place) in NYC serves a pizza with a gold leaf covering for a whopping price of $2000. While at my home country which is Indonesia, Domino's serves an American Classic Cheeseburger Pizza (IDK that's a thing) which is the most expensive pizza I could find on the website costs around $7 which is just baffling to me."
"Fireworks, I love them, but it's like $50 per second for the good ones."
"Yeah, I end up spending probably $300 each summer buying fountains and batteries and helicopters and cardboard tanks and sh*t--none of the big professional skyrockets. It's absurd, I'll be the first to admit."
"But it's fun!"
"Crazy expensive day. Guaranteed at least one relative will kick up a stink. Massive pressure to be The Happiest Day of Your Life. Everything doubles in cost if you say it's for a wedding (dress, suit, cake, venue) Just do the quick registry office paperwork, have a surprise party, and run away for a long honeymoon with the money you saved."

"Gambling for sure."
"I live in a small town where a casino is the big attraction They've had numerous people crap and pee themselves because they didn't wanna get up from the slots because 'it's just about to pay out.'"
Gambling is the greatest way to lose money.
Addiction will take everything if you let it.
We all have strong opinions about something, but when we think of opinions, we often think of hot button topics like political subjects.
But as it turns out, sometimes we can have just as strong of opinions of our preferred types of pasta.
Redditor PeeB4uGoToBed asked:
"What's the best pasta shape and why?"
The Right Answer
"I prefer my pasta, like my nuggets, to be dinosaur-shaped."
"This is my true answer, but if I have to pretend to be an adult, I always say Cavatappi."
"Radiatori. Thick and perfect for pasta sauces."
"They're so fun. They're my favorite, ahead of rotini. I just like ridges, I guess."
"Best for mac and cheese."
"My first time having cavatappi mac and cheese changed my life."
"Cavatappi gang, RISE UP."
"I see your cavatappi and raise you cavatelli."
"Cavatelli is the bee's knees, man."
"The shell shape stores cheese and sauces, so with each bite, you get tons of flavor."
"Yes! Mac n cheese always tastes amazing with Conchiglie, I don't make the rules."
"Rigatoni. My favorite dish is baked rigatoni with bolognese. I love the texture of the ridges and the larger hollow part scoops up the sauce very well as compared to ziti or penne."
"Cascatelli. Some crazy f**k got obsessed with answering the OP's question and invented this."
"Cascatelli is great, but his second round of shapes, specifically vesuvio, might be better."
"Agreed. Vesuvio is peak."
"I prefer quattrotini. I find it has better forkability and toothsinkability."
"Fusilli because it's silly."
"Bucatini is the best of all worlds. You have everything that's great about the long noodles and it's hollow! It absorbs sauce and oil on the inside."
"I hate bucatini! You can't suck a protruding part into your mouth because of the hole in the middle. You can't pick it up with a fork, because it's too slippery with sauce."
"Penne... because the sauce is in AND on it, lol (laughing out loud)."
"The pasta that would literally drive me insane if I tried to make it from scratch."
"I came to say this. Just something about it. Amazing mouth feel. Great texture. Good with light and heavy, meaty sauces."
"This one. There’s something so nostalgic about it for me. And I feel like it does well with most sauces. A very versatile shape for a variety of pasta dishes."
"Linguine: the spaghetti that went to private school."
"I am totally on board with linguine. Flat to catch the sauce and thin enough to cook evenly for the perfect consistency! Pairs with many sauces too!"
"Flat pasta is better than round pasta (like spaghetti) for sauces and flavors being absorbed. It's long enough to give the lady and the tramp vibes and not feel like you're a kid eating some superhero shapes out of a bowl like Fusilli and Farfalle can give off."
"It's thicker than tagliatelle to give it enough girth to feel like more of a main event than just being the bed your sauce and toppings sit on."
"Overall, it's just the best all-rounder in my book."
This conversation just goes to show how many pasta options there actually are in the world, some that we may have not even heard of yet, because of them being invented in 2020!
But it also goes to show that we all have our favorites, and we can have very strong opinions about them.
One of life's most unfortunate moments is when we feel our lives are genuinely in danger.
These horrific moments can involve the behavior of people with malicious intentions or just being at the wrong place and time.
Even though many people live to share their harrowing stories, the trauma doesn't necessarily go away completely.
But all anyone who's experienced a terrifying ordeal can do to find peace is to count their blessings and be grateful they are survivors.
Curious to hear from strangers online, Redditor Fearless-surfur-ee asked:
"What was the scariest incident happened with you?"
These Redditors experienced heart-stopping false alarms.
"Half a dozen masked men broke into my bedroom, threatened me and my girlfriend, realised they had the wrong house, apologised and left. Edit - I told the full story here a while back."
Witness At A Shopping Mall
"Similar thing happened to my Aunt. She witnessed an attack at a shopping centre (on going disagreement between 2 well known families) and was threatened. A few days later one of the older family members approached her in her driveway and apologised profusely for the younger persons behaviour and offered her compensation. She was so scared she just said no thanks and he left."
Sometimes, you gotta listen to your gut.
"Wife and I took a dark exit towards out neighborhood. Whole backseat full of bags cause we went shopping at the mall. There’s a red light at the intersection once you get off the exit and we pull up to this tinted oldsmobile. They were in the right lane to go straight or turn right and we were in the left lane to turn left."
"Nobody is around, maybe 10 at night. I turn left and look in my rear view and it’s the car that was next to us a bit back. I pull in my driveway and just had a really weird feeling, so I told my wife I’m gonna reverse and drive around the block. She thinks it’s weird as hell, but as we are reversing, this dude is walking towards us from that Oldsmobile parked around the corner. I dip the f**k out and make it look like I was just turning around and drove like a mile away before heading back."
"Just had this gut feeling, man. Who knows what would have happened? But it was scary as f'k, nonetheless."
A Tragic Stop
"Friend borrowed dad’s Benz to take wife on anniversary date. He stopped for flowers and was followed home by someone thinking he was wealthy. He was shot dead in his driveway in what turned out to be a gang initiation; you did the right thing."
These Redditors looked down the barrel of a gun...and lived to tell their story.
"Was at a train station that was empty and I was sitting down waiting for a train and a man walks over with a bag, opens it and takes out a shotgun and points it at me and I just stare at him, he then says 'you're not scared are you' then puts the shotgun back in the bag then walks out of the train station."
"Actually not sure if that was the scariest or weirdest or if I was even scared."
The Right Answer
"Reminds me of the time a guy put a gun to my neck and said, 'What would you do if I pull the trigger right now.'"
"I was in a completely apathetic state of mind at that time anyway and said, 'Not much I can do, but I'll haunt you.'"
These Redditors experienced medical emergencies.
"Last week had a heart attack after almost recovering from chemotherapy."
"I asked the nurse if I was going to die and she said I’m in the right place and they will look after me. Then I got more scared then I ever have before"
"I should not have survived but I did."
"The scan came back and we found a mass. We'd like you to come in to talk to the doctor today or tomorrow. You should see if someone can drive for you as you may be upset afterwards"
"Can I come in next week, I have a trip planned?"
"The doctor says you should come in today anytime and we will clear an appointment for you."
"Luckily that doctor kicked a**. 3 years post-surgery. Scans are clean in August and I move into the "only 10% chance of reoccurrence" bracket."
"Felt sick, kind of like the flu. Felt completely fine in the morning, but got worse as the day went on. It was the middle of the night and I was up with my husband and our new 6 week old baby. I was pumping breastmilk."
"Next thing I know, I’m waking up to EMTs surrounding me on my bed telling me not to move or sit up. My heart rate was incredibly high and blood pressure incredibly low. They took me to the hospital and no one knew what was wrong with me for a while. They kept asking me what drugs I took. I kept telling them nothing (which is true). I just had a baby, the biggest 'drug' I was taking was Tylenol. They didn’t believe me for a while."
"I couldn’t remember a lot of things at this point. I could barely even remember my own kid’s name. I couldn’t tell them who the president was or what year it was when they asked. It was a weird feeling to have memory missing. Kind of like having lost some puzzle pieces. Talking was also kind of difficult."
"After a BUNCH of tests, turns out I had a UTI so bad that I went into septic shock and my kidneys were shutting down. Didn’t know I had a UTI because I was still healing from childbirth and I am pretty asymptomatic when it comes to UTIs. I don’t feel pain when I get them. Spent a few days in the ICCU. Was extra scary considering my brand new baby was at home and I wasn’t and there was a chance I wouldn’t make it home at all."
"In the end, I thankfully made a full recovery."
"Not as intense as some of these other stories, but please don’t sleep on a UTI guys. Sepsis is no joke."
The last time I truly feared for my life was when I was at a party and a fight between two drunk partygoers turned into a Swiss army knife fight.
I'm not kidding.
A couple of my friends and I jumped off the second floor balcony and got chased in the parking lot.
After some fumbling with the car keys, my buddy managed to get five of us crammed into his car and the perpetrator started pounding on the rear window with his fists and bloodying it up from smashing his knuckles onto the glass.
The police came just in time. Thank you annoyed neighbor who called the cops on us for our blood-curdling screams disturbing the peace.
Perhaps the best thing about our friends is that we can always rely on them.
To help us out, to give us words of comfort and wisdom when we need them, or to just be a willing pair of ears.
Even so, our friends still have a way of surprising us, as well as disappointing us from time to time.
Sometimes they'll do things that just make us groan and roll our eyes but are easily forgiven over time.
Other times, however, they might do or say something which can only be described as "f*cked up."
Potentially putting an effective end to your friendship.
"What is the most f**ked up thing you've seen a friend do?"
Those Poor Cats...
"A guy I worked with was about to take his wife on a trip back to their mutual hometown in another state."
"They had a pair of delightful kittens and they asked me if I would watch them while they were gone."
"I had little experience with cats but these 2 were just wonderfully playful."
"I gave him a call when he got back to arrange returning the kittens but he said they had picked up a non-cat friendly dog on the journey and he would just drop off the kittens in the woods."
"Needless to say, I kept them and they were wonderful furry friends for me and eventually to my wife and kids."

You Don't Mess With Family...
"My best friend had just broken up with my brother—who had moved over a thousand miles and changed jobs to be with her—citing personal differences."
"My brother was devastated, but I tried to respect her decision and be a source of support for both of them, especially because they truly weren’t the best fit."
"But then she shared with me, because she knew that I loved her and would be happy for her so long as she was happy, that she’d been cheating on my brother for the past month and had found her soulmate."
"The depth of my brother’s heartbreak, already immense, was further compounded by the infidelity."
"To my bewilderment, she truly couldn’t understand why I was ending the friendship, seemed so distraught that I would end a years long relationship over something so 'small'."
"And I still can’t comprehend why she thought telling me would result in anything other than a complete door slam."
"Hannah, you still suck."
"And I’m still angry."
"I had also asked her to be the maid of 'honor' in my upcoming wedding."
Some friendships can withstand fundamental differences of opinion.
But no friendship is worth hanging onto when people (and kittens) are physically or emotionally harmed.
