    "you'll get prizes for doing your homework"
    I remember that one time the teacher forgot she said that... I can still remember how offended I was :'/ (usually that teacher gives out prizes for the best homeworks)

    or that one time the teacher made us do a whole 5 pages research on kenya AND DIDN'T EVEN COLLECT IT (he said we would get in trouble otherwise. I wasted so much time)

    Omg, omg, omg. I can completely relate with the frustration of handing in something you've spent hours on and not even having any feedback from your teacher. It's the WORST feeling ever. Yet, don't you find, other people seem to not bother about having it handed it back to them, even if it's been like 2 months? I suppose that says how much time they put into it (ie zero).

    The biggest fib I was ever told was that the fleshy bit between thumb and index finger was where our wings once sprouted from when we were pterodactyls because they're what we evolved from Primary teachers are weird.

    But on behalf of the teaching profession: sorry guys. We'll do what we have to to get you to work. My year 11s are still waiting for the Freddos I promised them at the start of the year :shh:

    And the difference between GCSE and A level explanations kills us. We hate doing it but it'd break your brains if we didn't! The worst thing I have to do is teach it the way the exam board explains things rather than how stuff actually works. Bleurgh!
    Teachers always promise sweets but never deliver or they say things like if you win you get a prize and then the prize ends up being ' the pride of winning '

    Back in year 9 my English teacher didn't mark our books because he had tonnes of ' year 11 mark to work ' and then when we're in year 11 he didn't mark our books because he had tonnes of ' year 13 mark to work ' ..... He also taught me film studies GCSE and didn't mark our books for 6 months and also one time he was like ' oh sorry but I left your books on my kitchen table ' ....

    This one is really **** when I was about to go off to Spain I revived a letter asking me to come to collage for an emergency meeting because I had failed my BFD so I called up the collage asking why I had failed turns out the course leader told his boss I hadn't handed in a pice of work😬 game over right I mean why would they believe me saying I had handed it in. Luckily my Dad for some reason was with me when I went and handed in said pice of work he took the phone and said to the guy he was there so there was another phone call half an hour later from the boss turns out the course leader had had another "look" and turns out I had passed.

    Why was this a lie well I had made a formal complaint about the course leader earlier in the year and my guess is he just wanted to fail me because of that makes me wonder how many other people he'd done that to. Lucky my Dad was there though.

    Lies I told me teacher:
    - I got my coursework under control (to my AS/A2 Media Studies teacher)
    - I lost my work, so I have to do it again( To the same teacher above)
    - I forgot about my homework, will hand it in tomorrow/the day after (To my English, Biology/Chem, Sociology, Psychology teachers)
    Spoiler:
    Show
    The true reasons I lied, was because I was having Depressive and anxiety episodes, at the time so I couldn't do the work/come into the Colly.
    Lies my teacher told me:
    - You will be fine in the exam, you will get an A/B - MUDDA ********. probably got a C/D :bawling::bawling:
    -Your media essay was fine, near perfect. Don't worry about the exam - MUDDA ********!!
    -We will accommodate to your mental health issues, and be understanding; that lasted like 3 months and they stopped.

    Not exactly a fib, but it does have an omission.

    "If you don't wear your seatbelt, you get a bad conduct."

    That was the teachers' policy on seatbelts in primary school and didn't explain the reason why. If asked why, they would just say the above line again.

    A bad conduct was a mini-detention where you wrote out lines or de-weeded the front lawn of the school. It could be easily interpreted like it was the only bad thing to happen to you if you don't wear a seatbelt.

    A family friend found it weird and then told me why they had such a policy in absolute graphic detail. Needless to say, we never saw him again...
