Not Saved By The Bell

, | USA | Bad Behavior, Students, Time

(At my college library at closing time, we signal by pressing a bell at 15 minutes, 10 minutes, and then 5 minutes to close. There are always two people on closing shift: one person stays at the checkout counter to help people check out books and the other person walks around the floors, politely reminding everyone that it’s time to leave. One night, after I have rung the 15 minute and 10 minute warning bells, a girl storms up to the checkout counter.)

Girl: “Someone up there keeps ringing a bell. You need to make them stop. It’s very loud and I’m trying to study!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, I did. That’s our closing warning bell. We’re closing for the night in 10 minutes. Please pack up your books to leave.”

Girl: “Humph! Well, you shouldn’t make it so loud. I have a test to study for!”

(Guess who made me and my shift-mate 10 minutes late to close that night while she packed up her books?)

The Shakers Of The Education World

| Wellington, New Zealand | Bad Behavior, Language & Words, Teachers

(Two earthquakes have struck central New Zealand, and have twice resulted in the closure of the university so it can be checked. The first was on a Sunday, but the second was on a Friday, resulting in varying forms of this being said by lecturers the following Monday.)

Lecturer: “Now, if there is an earthquake, remain calm and get under the tables until the shaking has stopped. Once it has, calmly get the f*** out of the building, because I really don’t want to be in here!”

Making A Complete Asperger Of Themself

| Birmingham, England, UK | Bad Behavior, Bigotry

(All R.S. students in my year are taking a day trip. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, which is a mild form of autism that hinders my social abilities. My friends end up at the back of the bus, five in a row. I sit in front of them with another friend. One friend has the habit of calling people autistic when they do something stupid.)

Friend #1: *randomly says something dumb*

Friend #2: “AUTISM!”

Me: *whips head around to stare at him* “Yes, you called?”

(Everyone broke out laughing, including him, as he tried to explain himself. I wasn’t offended and found the whole thing hilarious.)

Avoiding Drama

| MO, USA | Bad Behavior, Teachers

(The drama teacher is a lot more laid-back and far more sarcastic than the average teacher. His classroom is on one end of the school buildings, well away from all the rest, right next to the parking lot, and he knows a good percentage of those of us with cars are sneaking out for lunch if we can avoid the parking lot patrol.)

Drama Teacher: *lunch bell ringing* “Hey, who’s going out for lunch today?” *pointing at raised hands* “Where are you going? You? You?” *waves cash at chosen student* “Okay, I want a [Sandwich], fries, and a chocolate shake, and if you get caught I don’t know you. Get out, all of you.”

A Note-Worthy Incident

| Los Angeles, CA, USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body, Staff

Substitute Teacher: “Good morning, class! I’m Miss [Substitute Teacher], and this is my first day teaching a class!”

(Cue seven-year-old kids acting up for a couple hours. My friend finds a washer under his desk and puts it on his finger, and finds that he can’t take it off. He approaches the teacher, who also can’t take it off.)

Substitute Teacher: “You’ll need to go to the school nurse. Here’s a note.”

Note: “[Friend]’s finger needs to be amputated.”

(My friend reads the note. He doesn’t know what “amputated” means, but knows it can’t be good. He goes to the school nurse.)

Nurse: *reads note* “Oh, boy! We’re going to have to cut your finger off! First we’ll have to break it one way, then the other…”

(While my friend is practically fainting at the thought of going home missing a finger, the nurse has already soaped the washer off.)

Nurse: “Okay, who wrote this stupid note?”

Friend: “Miss [Substitute Teacher].”

Nurse: “That new lady that came in today? Go to the cafeteria and bring back a packet of taco sauce.”

(My friend does so. The nurse tapes his finger down, puts some gauze and taco sauce on the end, and sends him back to class with a note of her own:)

Note: “The deed has been done!”

(My friend goes back to class and shows the teacher the note and his hand. She turns pale, and takes off down the hall screaming.)

Friend: *chases after her, showing his (uninjured) finger* “It’s really okay, Miss [Substitute Teacher]! See?”

(The substitute kept going, and was never seen at that school again. I don’t know who took over the class for the rest of the day.)
