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.

The director is just as much a moron as the student, you should report it to someone who will deal with the student, harassing is bad enough, stalking is even worse, he could become a peeping tom, and the next even worse, talk to your parent, or some adult !!!

I went to singing lessons with a friend who was too shy to go on her own. It was with her music teacher. It wasn’t until we went to the first lesson that I realised why she didn’t want to go on her own, as 5 minutes in he said to me, “Your beautiful voice would be so much more if you sang whilst pole dancing for me”. I was too shocked to even reply.

It reminds me of something I was told by Japanese women. "A lot of women don't report sexual harassment because other women usually comment that this is only to look popular and that usually it's a way for ugly people to raise their image. So not too make enemies of other women, they just shut up". I couldn't believe my ears but I was told many many times that same exact thing so I guess many women here are taught the same ... To be fair, my wife never heard this but she works alone, at home so that may be an office thing.

This reminds me of a story with my principal in middle school. In 8th grade, this one guy would constantly sexually harass students, not just girls, but boys too. Humping, groping, attempting to shove a pencil up one of my male friends' butt, and constant sexual and disgusting comments. He expressed a liking for incest and actually asked me for a blowjob. He was incredibly racist against Asians, and sexist to boot. I told my principal of all these concerns, and she tells me "Well, we don't want to label this as harassment." Excuse me? If that isn't harassment then what the hell is!? People could get fired, fined, and even imprisoned for less!

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?
