    In Primary, we got told the fire alarms also worked as a CCTV with sound so if you said/did anything bad and it was caught on the 'CCTV', then you'd be punished. Funny thing was, these fire alarms were literally everywhere in the primary school, so I was scared until a teacher told us it wasn't true!

    "I can guarantee that you all are going get Us in GCSE Business!" My Business teacher said this before my other business teacher came along and she singled me out for some reason.

    On results day I came out with an A and her class did worse than mine in their exam. Her face was priceless but it was great to see my Business teacher light up because he was a brilliant teacher

    This isn't a generic, cliched thing but it's funny. An English teacher from our school was suspended after he told the class he was just going to nip along to the photocopier but instead returned to the school 2 hours later with a new suit, a haircut and drunk :laugh:

    The story about the kid who used to swing on their chair?

    How they broke the legs fell back and split their head open. Classic.

    Really? I guess we were just lucky then, but I don't think our primary teachers knew what went on at high school, they just wanted to stop us interrupting

    Dont swing on the back of your chair, "I knew a kid that did that and hit his head as he fell off"

    Every teacher told you the same story

    not a big one but "you heart is to the left of your chest"
    but it is. did you know that your left lung is smaller than your right lung because the heart takes up space?

    the left lung is smaller because the heart is tilting towards it.
