    Anything my GCSE maths teacher ever said when she wasn't going through something can come out under here, I remember once a lad asked "Miss, can I go the toilet?" she would reply with "i'm sure you can at your age" before an intensive investigation into why he didn't go at break. Every one of her rants ended with "when I say jump, you say how high" and she would say "okay" after every sentence. And before every test she would reminisce about the time she allegedly ripped up a boys test paper who cheated, in front of the class making him cry uncontrollably, whether it was true or not she never failed to remind us. My all time favourites she said to a lad was "I've got my gcse, I've got my a level and i've got my degree, what have you got?" and when she said to another "On results day we'll both be opening envelopes, my reaction will be good because its my wages, what will yours be?" and her most used one "it doesn't bother me if you don't want to work, I'm still getting paid". Surprisingly enough many in the class didn't like her sarcasm, but I liked how she was fair with you if you were fair with her!
    Your math teacher used to "teach" my one fro. Year 9 onwards sat at the back filing his nails telling us to work through a book when I confronted him about this he said if you don't want the benefit of my teaching go to the head I did I wen't every year and the guy did nothing THANK ALOT FORIST IN WINNISH thanks to you my skills on math go no higher then year 8.

    *Bell rings for end of lesson. Everyone gets up to move.*
    Teacher: "That bell is for me to know what time it is! Sit back down, I tell you when to leave this room."

    Or the more common one: "You are year 11, I have year 7's that are better behaved than you lot!" xD

    You can teach yourself the next chapter to prepare you for the independent learning of uni.

    Well that's great except when half the class fails to get their grades for uni as a result. They're prepared for uni, but they haven't got in so that's great :P

    “It’s really not that difficult”
    And then the whole class replies with "yeah, you're a teacher, so it's easy for you!" xD

    Then the teacher gets into the whole "what is there not to understand? Tell me exactly which bit you don't get", to which everyone replies "all of it"

    I had my hair in a mohawk type style and one of my teachers came up to me and asked "has someone in management spoken to you about that?"
    It really annoyed me -.-
    Another annoying one is when teachers say they were too busy to mark your essays... *****, well next time i will be too busy to write the thing!

    the counting one where they go from 5 down to one and then stand in silence but what annoys me is that in primary school once they got to 1 it would then go up to 1 and a half, 1 and a quarter- the teacher didn't realise she was actually counting up again lol

    this made me laugh

    Maths-

    "The rest of this is trivial so you can work it out".
    "You already know the answer to this".

    Physics-

    "This will never come up in the exam".
    "You don't need to know why that's true".
    "Here is the equation for.." (When no derivation is provided and instead just the equation is given)

    Chemistry-

    "Hasn't your other teacher gone through that practical with you?".
    "You're over-thinking this".

    When you disagree with a teacher and they sense you are correct and they just say "don't be cheeky/don't answer back." So annoying.
