Freshmen year in high school; the teacher made all the answers to the geography final "C" on the scantron (bubble sheet). Being the "smart" student I was, I purposely changed some thinking no way in hell are all the answers C. Let's just say I did not do that well Source
8th grade science class. My final project was running my mouse, Taylor, through a maze to get some tasty treats at the end and time him. Very simple project, but I was absolutely getting an A. The biggest part of the project was bringing it in and demonstrating it for the class. On the due date, I dropped off my maze and mouse first thing in the morning (science was my last class of the day), making sure it was in the back of the classroom so he wouldn't be disturbed throughout the day.
I arrive to class several hours later, pull the lid off my maze, and... wait... where's Taylor? His travel container is empty. I look around the room for a loose mouse, but I don't see him. I ask my teacher about it. "Who's Taylor?" she asked. "My pet mouse--he was in his travel container inside my project but now he's not there. Did you see him?"
"That was YOUR mouse?" she asked.
"Oh, I just put it in the snake tank a few minutes ago because I didn't know where he belonged."
So I turn to the snake tank, and there's Taylor... being eaten by a snake... backwards... so he's screaming... F---ing horrifying.
She really had to go out of her way to get the mouse out of his travel container... Remove the lid from the maze, then remove the lid from the container, get the mouse, put both lids back on... And the project/container had my name written in Sharpie--how could she not have known whose he was?! Ugh... hate that woman...
Still more--because I couldn't demonstrate my project, I failed it.
Edit: My mom definitely went in and threw a fit with the principal. My project was ultimately graded based on my experimental data without the demonstration--an A. It was the following semester that it was finally resolved, so it had to be corrected on my record. My mouse could have somehow escaped, but he was mostly lazy and I doubt he would have worked himself up to escaping TWO lids. Because I couldn't prove she didn't just find poor Taylor running around (because, naturally, picking up strange mice is what most people do), nothing came of the second bit. There were a few other students who said they saw her snooping through the projects from my class, but we were all just kids and nobody believes kids... except for Mommy.
Edit 2: Unfortunately, it is possible this teacher really is that stupid Source
When I was in middle school, our entire class was lined up outside our American History class after recess, waiting to get in. We waited like 10 minutes, wondering where our teacher was. He suddenly bursts through the door and is SUPER PISSED OFF. There is practically steam coming out of his ears.
He divides the class, putting 5 people on one side of the room, and the rest of the class on the other. On the floor, there is a large rectangle of masking tape. He gives rolls of tape to the 5 selected students, and instructs them to bind the hands of everyone on the other side of the room. Everyone in the class is creeped right out.
As our hands are being bound, anyone who speaks gets hushed immediately by our furious teacher. He stares them down with an intense look of disapproval and gives the slitting-your-neck sign language with his finger. When everyone is bound, he makes the class lie down, one by one, inside the taped rectangle. He then instructs the 5 students to tape our legs and mouths. Kids start to protest, but he yells at them to be quiet and lie down. When the entire class is bound and gagged on the classroom floor, tiled up like sardines, the teacher turns off the lights and leaves the room.
Everyone starts freaking out, ripping the tape off, getting up. Chaos descends. Nobody can figure out what the f--- is going on.
The teacher comes back into the room with a huge grin on his face and says "Now you all know what it's like to be on a slave ship heading to the colonies!"
He was fired a few weeks later Source
