    Literally got told that lying would incite little goblins to start climbing up our legs and sprawl out onto our body, and nibble off pieces of skin until we admitted to our wicked lies... that teacher was always a little peculiar..

    Our biology teacher told me I shouldn't go into forensics because I'd have to taste stomach acid to tell what killed a person. Turned out that this used to be a method of doing toxicology but is way outdated and very much against health and safety.

    On a less gross note, My chemistry teacher told there was no hope of me getting into my first choice, three years later I graduated from that exact university. Don't know if it counts as a fib, but it certainly didn't ring true.

    Now, did your Chem teacher say that to mock you or to encourage you to work harder and prove her wrong?

    This wasn't from our teachers but everyone in my junior school believed 100% completely that if you managed to escape from school without going through the gate you were allowed to go home.

    There was a patch of worn down bricks in the corner of the playground. Every break someone would be kicking at those worn out bricks trying to break through so we could all go home.

    He told me that a couple of days after my final exam, so I really hope he wasn't trying to get me to work harder.

    Either way, it's not the correct thing to say. There are ways of making a student work harder (especially one with a passion for said subject and who was A* throughout GCSE and had only fallen to a B) without telling them that all hope is lost on them.

    On the plus side, he gave me a great example of what I don't want to be in the classroom.

    Here's my list of fibs;
    -"It's not that cold" says the PE teacher in the jacket
    -"Running for 30 minutes isn't that hard" says the PE teacher in the chair
    -"No eating" says the teacher eating a roast dinner
    -"Your peroid is no excuse to get out of PE" says the male PE teacher
    -"It doesn't take 10 minutes to get changed" says the PE teacher that doesn't have to.

    Paying for a maths book that was close to irrelevant, in the hope of getting back my money when I return the book, but I didn't.
    You will get back the money when you bring back the book, they said.

    That I was going to get a E whether I liked it or not and that the teacher "quite frankly" didn't care. I got an A* but I'm pretty sure that's because I wanted to prove her wrong like it was life or death.

    There was always that story about that kid who swung back too far on his chair and died or cracked his head open lol

    One teacher tried to tell us that she was allowed to keep us after school without parents permission if we misbehaved and tried to enforce it too. Unsurprisingly, she got fired.
