We all know what kind of difference a good teacher can make in someone's life. A skilled educator has an opportunity to inspire students to pursue their goals and talents, can recognize their strengths and give them the most important knowledge they can offer. While we all should celebrate all of the amazing teachers out there, many schools still lack compassionate, thoughtful and talented teachers. A Twitter user who recently started a thread asking people to share their crappy teacher stories proves that some people are simply unsuited to do this important job. In the eye-opening and shocking thread, people shared stories of harrowing teachers who abused their power over students, humiliated and bullied them.

Talking of respect, I had a new ROTC teacher come in screaming at us talking about if you respect me I'll respect you while showing us zero respect. I made it my main mission in life to make him hate his and I succeeded. I got many other students on board and he barely lasted the year.. I'm willing to bet I took years off that man's life.

Hi man. Many women and particularly young women have irregular periods, so one month it could be 28 days, but the next 12 etc. That is why "safe days" aren't a real thing.

I had a male PE Teacher yell at me during class to get my "fat ass" moving. When we had to run laps around the track.....back in the 80's. I was a super shy kid and it was awful. I was so upset that before the next class, I tried to drop a really heavy dresser drawer on my foot in the hopes of breaking my foot so I wouldn't have to go to class, it didn't work. I never told anyone about it.

Wow. I'd have been screwed. I have endometriosis which caused me to have super irregular, heavy and long periods. When I say long I mean I'd literally Have one for three weeks or a month sometimes longer. Most days whether I was actively on my period or not I had cramps so bad I didn't want to move or couldn't so swimming would NOT have been an option.

As someone who has always had extremely irregular periods, I can't explain how incredibly stupid this is. The female body, especially when it is going through puberty, is not nearly as neat or predictable as this mouthbreather clearly believes. We are not on a schedual, we do not have planned periods. Stop making the poor girls' already confusing, hormone-heavy lives even worse.

I was an anxious child and it was mortifying enough to have to tell my Male swim teacher that I was on my period, but then we had to sit on bleachers off to the side and he would tell anyone who asked why I wasn't swimming so then the whole class knew when I had my period. Horrible!

We didn't have a pool at my school, but having your period was not even a consideration for track or other gym activities. You just pushed through it like you have to do with life as an adult. That's what tampons and advil is for. You don't get days off work every month if you have your period, unless your job is swimming with sharks. Maybe if men got periods it would be a revered national holiday every month, but women don't have that luxury.

eh, it is their job to track non-participation. Period (no, not the menstruation kind). However tracking your periods is just poor behavior, it should be more about how often in a semester instead of "every 28 days."

One teacher told my youngest (of 3) sister, "Why can't you be creative like your sisters?" That hurt. I'm glad she got past that, but it took a while. She now does interesting crafts (great colour sense!). Plus, she works in PR, marketing, travel writing, tourism, would make a very good manager-- I can't praise her enough!

So how does one gain the right to feel sad? Is there a quota system (10 worst situations on the entire planet) or is it based on a checklist (must have 9 out of 10 specific events happen over the course of 25 hours) or do you argue for your right before a jury of one insensitive art teacher?

Ah, yes, I watched the whole thing. It was originally an all-girls school, and it eventually became a co-ed high school. It is now defunct. The whole thing was so sad. The head priest, the brotherhood, and their lackeys sexually abused the poor female students.
