Teachers aren't all buttoned-up shirts, taut rulers, and strict classroom policies.
A lot of teachers are eccentric weirdos with their own rich interior lives outside the school halls that sometimes spill into their work. While this is an obvious fact to type out as an adult, for kids and teens, the realization that their teachers are weirdos just like them can be downright revelatory.
In a popular Reddit thread, students (and former students) shared the weirdest thing they've caught their teacher doing.
My history teacher back in high school was the fucking best. I'm just going to list some shit he did.
Day 1 of class, he starts ranting about how strict he is and how rules were meant to be followed and out of nowhere, he grabs his stapler and says "right away mr president!" And runs out of the room. Doesn't come back for 20 minutes.
