15 Times Teachers Had To Discipline Kids But Were Secretly Amused
One of the great things about living in this era is the sense of humor most folk aspire to apply as a filter on their life when considering interactions and how to react accordingly. It’s incredible how much people have lightened up and sharing those moments of light-heartedness has become prevalent in so many ways.
The following posts deal with teachers who have experienced an interaction where the student was inappropriate. But while it borderline required some form of discipline, it also secretly amused the teacher and may make you chuckle too.

I had a limited number of pencils to give out so I grabbed a handful of colored pencils and told kids they could use them if they needed to.
The one black student looked at me and said “oh sure, giving me the COLORED pencil again”
We both burst out laughing, pro tip kids if the teacher laughs then you’re going to get away with it
South Indian immigrant kid. Strong accent. Kids were riffing “yo momma” jokes. Kid hems and haws and gets everyone’s attention, then drops: “I, too, would make fun of your mother, excepting that cows are sacred in my culture.”
Kindergartener shoved her hand into the spinach at the salad line in lunch, held it up and shouted, “leafs is for sheep!” Before throwing it in the ground in disgust.
I had to walk away while another teacher scolded her for wasting food because I couldn’t keep a straight face.
We were doing some very basic fermentation experiments in high school, the one where you add in different amounts of yeast, warm water, and sugar in flasks and you place a balloon over the top to see which one expands the most (aka produces the most carbon dioxide). Anyways, one of the groups overdid it and their balloon exploded sending a gooey yeast mess all over the four group members. One of the kids stands up, removes his goggles, and shouts “I f*****g love science!” at the top of his lungs. This happened to be during an observation. The admin was also trying to suppress her laughter.

Elementary PE class was getting lined up to leave the gym. Biggest kid in my class bent over and of course, had half of his butt crack pop up the back of his pants. The smallest kid in class with his high pitched voice proceeded to yell, “Release the Kraken!”.
I was getting ready to get on him when the big kid started to lose his mind laughing. Once he started, the rest of the class and myself started. Big kid was an awesome young man and said he thought it was hilarious.
I teach kindergarten. One of my sweetest little girls, coming inside from recess, smiles and says “man, it’s f*****g cold outside!” I asked her to repeat herself, and sure enough, I heard her correctly. Hard not to laugh
I teach preschool, 2.5/3yos. We have a student with a speech delay. He talks but it’s not terribly clear. Except during an incident last week. A little girl was being mean to him. He said “Sally is being a B***H!”.
Coworker: Um…oh! A witch! You called her a witch, right? Like from Halloween?
Kid: No! She’s a B***H. Not witch! Sally is a b***h!
Very hard to correct him (and tell mom about it) with a straight face.
To be fair, he wasn’t wrong. She was kind of being a b***h to him at the time.
My wife, a middle school teacher, once told a kid to walk over and flip off the light switch so the class could see the overhead projector easier.
so…he walked over and gave the switch the bird.
After telling kid he needs to buckle down and get work done..
He point blank told me that if I just sit there on my a*s all day, he can sit on his a*s and not do work too.
Ballsy move kid. It didn’t pay off as I sent him downstairs but I still chuckle about it.
Had to discipline a student for getting a whole class to sing Stacy’s Mom to a pupil called Stacy. Which was really, really funny.
A student signed his name “Dixie Normus”. That gave me a good chuckle.

Male teacher here. Teaching sex Ed. Going over methods of protection. I was talking about condoms and this guy said, “Hey, Mr. G4m3c0cks, you know that barcode at the base of every condom?”
I said, “Don’t think I’ve ever noticed that.”
He replied, “Oh, I guess you ain’t gotta roll yours down that far, huh?”
I laughed probably harder than I should have.
Had a lovely senior class that I adored. The girls started asking if they could be like my daughters (I was 28 when this convo happened). And I say “of course!” And another says “can I be your favourite daughter?” And I laugh and say “of course!”.
Then one of my boys says “can I be your favourite step-son?” And I had to keep a straight face and send him out.
My male coworkers had tears and were pissing themselves with laughter when I told them.
He then had to explain to our principal and his mother what the reference meant.

I teach 7/8 year olds at the minute. At lunch time I overheard Child A say to Child B that they can’t eat something because they have a nut allergy, then Child C comes in with the comment “but are you allergic to THESE NUTS?” as he cups his balls/pants.
I had to give out to him of course, but I was laughing on the inside! As the child was in tears for getting in trouble haha.
First day of school, I’m learning names of my freshmen and taking attendance. I get to one of my last students and his name is a little challenging to pronounce. I give it a shot and ask how I did. He responds in a very flamboyantly, stereotypically gay voice:
“Umm… that’s fine but I don’t want to be called that.”
Me: “Okay, what would you like to be called?”
“Why don’t you call me…Daddy”
