Being a teacher is hard work — there are the grueling hours, screaming kids, and a paycheck that leaves much to be desired. I mean, teachers mold and shape the youths for f*cks sake! You’d think that would entitle them to a little bit of bank, nah mean?
But probably the most soul-sucking, eye-roll inducing, and annoying parts of being a teacher is dealing with overbearing parents. Maybe they’re helicoptering their way into the classroom with a bad attitude and an inflated sense of entitlement. Or maybe their lack of awareness to their child’s needs makes you want to pull your hair out.
So the next time you’re thinking of storming into your kid’s school, demanding that their teacher or professor or counselor is doing a sh*t job, you might want to ask yourself — is my child being a d*ck? Am I hindering the teacher in working to the best of their ability? Am I being a d*ck?
Chances are, if you’re about to go all apesh*t on the 23 year old 1st grade teacher who’s right out of college and spending tireless hours to make sure that YOUR kid is learning and succeeding and flourishing — then yep — you’re probably being a d*ck. And you should definitely chill the F out.
