    I just remembered my Drama teacher in year 5 put me in a cupboard for reading the stage instructions in a play (I was basically the year 5 joker). Good old days.

    Thankfully I didn't. I had a horrible geography teacher anyway. She was about 26 had less charisma then Jeremy Corbyn and pretended to be a bit younger than she really was. Great combination. Definitely not sarcastic.

    Fully agreed. I don't see why it has to be mandatory for so many schools. It is politics and economics that should be, but those aren't even an option. Logic.

    History isn't that bad. It's just way too general and lacking when it comes to actual application. But I got an A* so oh well.

    the main thing i didn't like about history was actually my university's attitude to it. they told us on the open day "we don't focus on the world wars because obviously you have done that so we focus on the stuff you haven't done like the french and russian revolutions, the english reformation, industrialization etc" given i had studied everything they taught and had the word wars excluded from the syllabus for a generalization i was a bit hacked off

    She ignored him and just walked away. He continued saying things like that to her all year.
    Really? I deffo wouldn't be able to cope. Why didn't she call him out on his strange behaviour?

    The teacher was a strange guy - we were used to it.
    Also we're talking about a 13 year old, shy, "goody-goody" - Even if it happened now, she would probably do the same.

    my male chem teacher once went "Guess what I'm shaking under my desk", and starts doing a very sexual looking hand gesture... obviously as sixth form students we were all pissing ourselves.. it turned out to be a lint bunny he was shaking, and he did realise afterwards why we were all laughing

    My Stats teacher went up to a friend of mine while he was waiting for his Core teacher and started to talk to him about smashing chairs. He loves maths tricks. And he sets more homework than all my other teachers put together. That's him in a few sentences.
    What like, "there are 10 chairs in this room, if I smash two together, how many hours will it take for you to repair them?"
