Teachers are underpaid and overworked professionals who are doing their best to impart valuable knowledge to their sometimes ungrateful students. These teachers probably reached their patience threshold and are trying very hard to keep it together whilst still fulfilling their job responsibilities. If you have had teachers like this, thank your lucky stars this was the worst thing they can do – unhinge you while making you laugh all at the same time.
Your Time’s Up
There’s no better way to terrorise your students but to remind them that time is perennially passing, unlike their grades. It is also a good way to tell them that salvation doesn’t rest on the clock or them looking at it whenever they are stumped in answering a test question. This is your teacher’s way to tell you to focus on the question and give your best answer, while also instilling bloodcurdling fear.
The secret to a test is to not spend too much energy on one item. Go with your gut and hope for the best. Also, do not let your teacher’s antics intimidate you. It’s just them giving tough love where tough love is due. Also, make sure to study next time. It’s for your own good too.
Teachers are omniscient beings
Teachers are not gods, but they know what you are up to even before you start doing it. They’ve been there, and done that. They are experts in identifying who are faking it, and who are doing the real studying. Give your teachers some respect and pay attention to the lessons they are imparting. You’ll never know when you’ll use Einstein’s Theory of Relativity so best to keep that handy inside your brain.
Then again, you have two choices. Either master the art of the poker face while reading texts while your cellphone is on your crotch, or stop looking at your phone while its on your crotch. Can you not wait until the class is over? Remember, patience is a virtue.
