    My favourite has to be: "you wouldn't do this at work then why do it at school?". It's true though!

    "The cleaners refused to clean the form room yesterday... because it was MESSY!"

    "They're not called 'free' periods... they're called STUDY periods!"

    Period 1: "The bell is the signal for me to end the lesson soon, not for you to pack up and leave."
    Period 2: "You should be lined up outside this door WHILE the bell is ringing."

    "The library was left in an absolute state last night. Therefore we are going to lock it. It's sad that a few individuals ruin it for everyone. If you know who did it please come forward."
    - one day later, after many complaining phone-calls from parents -
    "The perpetrators have confessed! Library's open again." :rolleyes: Did they seriously think anyone believed them?

    It was a common theme with my science teachers having a thing against the arts/creative subjects. They always used to say "Well, if you're finding this too hard then you can always study film and media".

    I did Drama. :getmecoat:

    'Walk!'(When you were running')
    When you were whispering to your mate in class 'would like to stand up and share your conversation with the rest of the class'
    When you were in primary infants 'youre not in nursery anymore. You should know better than this' when you in juniors 'youre not in infants anymore..' when you were in secondary 'youre not primary school children anymore. .'

    "Something's obviously funny, would you like to share it with the rest of us?"

    "No I'm not telling you my first name, it's private" yet other teachers saw no problem in telling you.

    Also when it looked as if someone wasn't listening, they would challenge this person to tell them what had just been said. Usually backfired when there person was actually listening so something like "next time face the front" was used as a reserve remark.

    The story about a boy leaning back on his chair who fell, cracked his head and died.
    I got told a variation on that. There was a boy swinging back on his chair with a pen lid in his mouth, then fell back and choked to death on the pen lid

    I actually quite like this, because it wound people up so much. This teacher was the wettest guy you could imagine. Kids would walk all over him but when he brought out this line it infuriated them. It went like this.

    "Tim, stop doing that please".
    " siiiiiir I'm not doing anything..."
    "I know... That's the problem"

    Chaos ensues.

    In my school, that phrase was necessary! The cleaners had to get hepatitis shots because students were urinating on the floor and pooping on the toilet lids. It's horrendous to walk into the girls' toilets, only to find a used sanitary towel stuck to the wall.

    There was so much litter outside that we ended up with seagulls nesting on the school roof, waiting for food. It pains me to say that I've been pooped on at lunch. Multiple times.
    Yikes! I'm guessing this is East London/Birmingham/Leicester/Luton/Bradford?

    I hate when a teacher would have a conversation with the class about making a mess in the form room and how the cleaners had complained about the mess. "It's not their job to clean up after you" But it is though, isn't it?
    In ouren school we had break out space when every there was a mess in then head of year would tell uses they not there to clean then year group would say but yes they are three to clean
