    Middle School Kid Brought A Taser

    From Redditor u/magnummentula:

    Educational assistant, but whatever. A makeshift taser. This kid had rigged up a "taser" using a couple of 9v batteries, wire, tape, and some sort of button from what could have been a toy.

    It wasnt dropping kids, but it was enough to make you jump. I was impressed, but also wanted to pull the little sh*ts arms off and slap the snot out of him with his own arms because he kept stabbing girls in the chest with it. Middle school kids are a weird point where they are too smart for children, but are certainly not human.

    A Toddler Had Dragonflies

    From Redditor u/plzupvoteme:

    Live Dragonflies.

    He was a little 4 year old boy that would never listen to any of the rules and generally just cause a lot of trouble. Anyway, he would catch dragonflies, without harming them. When you told him to release them he would open his backpack and 2 or 3 dragonflies would fly out.

    Students Joined In On A Teacher Prank War

    From Redditor u/theoreticald**kjokes:

    Well this is my f**king time to shine. My coworker and I had a mild prank war going on. Somehow, the students caught wind and decided to instigate by stealing things from his room and taking it to mine and vice-versa. Here are some of the things I've had to take from them and return to him:

    His car keys

    His entire desktop computer

    Portraits of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson

    Pumpkins from his Halloween decorations

    His desk chair

    His car keys again

    A student desk

    His travel mug with his name on it

    At this point I'm convinced my coworker just doesn't want his car

    And somehow, in the five minutes between his class and mine, they managed to flip all the desks in his classroom upside down. I'm not making this up.

    When I was a casual teacher I confiscated a knife from a 5 year old. He threatened me with it when I tried to get him to do his work.

    It was my first week.

    A Teacher Literally Paid For Her Confiscation

    From Redditor u/-EvidenceOfSin-:

    Had a teacher confiscate/ pay for a raunchy drawing. We had a really good artist in our science class and during the lesson he drew our science teacher as one of Jack's French girls. She was so impressed with the work she said "wow, that's incredible, highly inappropriate. But incredible. Wait right there" got her purse out and gave him £10 for it while explaining why you should only draw life models and not in science class.
