Teachers have it hard, man. After years of going through the sh*tty educational system, some how these people decided they wanted to pursue the career of teaching young minds. And if you’ve met most teachers outside of the classroom, you’d know that they’re probably miserable. They’re thinking of the next lesson plan they have to draft, grading a bunch of papers, and dealing with their students (who are mostly ungrateful, let’s be real).
My best friend is an English teacher at a middle school and the last time I visited her, she asked me to meet at her school. I walked in not knowing what to expect and everything seemed fine and dandy up until I actually stepped foot into her classroom. Kids are f*cking awful, especially at that age. Not only do teachers have to drum up lesson plans and figure out how to get this information to stick in the brains of these ingrates, they also have to deal with their poor attitudes. No wonder teachers love happy hour and can’t wait for the weekend almost more than the rest of us do.
But there are bad apples thrown into that bunch, that’s for sure. Yes, teachers are underpaid, unappreciated, and work so hard without the acknowledgement but some teachers are just plain a**holes. Who knows if all the years of working in the sh*tty educational system turned them sour or not but one thing’s for certain, they probably shouldn’t be teachers anymore.
