I think some students think I'm irrationally angry when I get upset and demand immediate end to:

1. Wearing a hat when entering a classroom;
2. Sitting at the back when they know my rule is: sit at the front;
3. Speaking Korean in English class.
when students find it acceptable to yell "TEACHHHHHERRRRR" instead of simply raising their hand. i mean, ****** hell, i assume korean teachers let them do it in their classes, and how it doesn't drive them absolutely insane is beyond me

I have one student whom I've NEVER seen without this one specific hat on. I'd feel bad at this point asking her to remove it. I've been teaching her over a year now.

And agreed, some of my smaller classes will try to sit at the back and leave 3 rows open up front. They could at least hide their disdain for learning English :rolleyes:

People who don't respect the

"Exit before entry" rule

Elevators, buildings, T-junctions.  Seriously, it isn't difficult!

Smoking as close to a doorway as possible whilst being (technically) outside means that everyone who enters or exits the building has to breathe your smoke.  Spitting while smoking means that whilst beathing your smoke, they have to walk through your spit.

Arseholes who drive though green man crossings when you are on them, then pretend the don't see you by staring ahead.  Who only looks forward when they drive?

Yup. Repeatedly screaming, literally screaming, at you for attention when you are 2 feet in front of them and helping another student drives me up the wall..and it happens every single day, every single class, lol.

Also, a few students singing, laughing, turning around in their seats and doing it repeatedly after you called them out on it. Having no consequences for most things makes me crazy.

I have a rule to raise your hand and wait that we've went over many times and they still do it. I started just ignoring them and when they get quiet and raise their hand, then I pay attention to them. They seem to be catching on.

This sort of thing winds me right up.  Is there a more beloved character than Apu?  So sad.

Like the Mexican cultural appropriation this is a form of racism. Thinking Indians can't deal with someone immitating their accent as well as white people, like Scotsmen for example

+1.

CNN has become just awful. 

They are more an editorial opinion site than factual news.

Hold onnnnnnnnnnnnnn, Apu is being written off of The Simpsons due to racial stereotyping?????

Holy hell, remember when they went to Canada? And they played with Canadian stereotypes? Guess who was upset? NO ONE

But those overly sensitive, ***** Indians, I guess they're all upset. They're so bloody weak, you tell an Indian that you don't like their shirt and they crumple on the ground and cry like a little ****.

Wait............ Do I sound like an azzhole? I do, do I? Well, if you're for Apu getting written off, that's how I see YOUR thought process.

Why not write off Groundskeeper Willy? He's a walking stereotype. Professor Frink, he relies on the scientist/Nerd stereotype. Comic Book Guy?

Apu is brown though. And if you're brown, you must be so bloody weak minded that you can't handle a character like Apu.

I don't think it's the Indians who are upset.
