Today, a student threw her hot coffee at me after I told her I was giving her an F. For months I've been telling her she needs to hand in missing work, but she thought I was bluffing. She got suspended, but my clothes are still ruined and I still got burned. FML

OP here. Luckily, the burn is not bad at all. I don't even need medical attention. The skin is just red and a bit sore, similar to a minor sunburn. It will be 100% gone in another day or two. She was suspended for the rest of the school year. I do not intend to take legal action, because she will likely be back in my classroom next year. (It's an adult education program, so there are no restrictions for accepting students with records. Pretty sure this girl already has a few assault charges in her past.) Thank you for the support and sympathy! :)

You could probably press charges against her, as well. I would. Teach that little brat that there are consequences to her actions.

wow, the **** is wrong with her? Hope she gets expelled.

Kids are like that in my school too...

Expelled and or charged with assault.

Yeah I don't see how suspension is an appropriate punishment for assault.

Assaulting a teacher is usually an automatic expulsion.

I hope she gets suspended, or even expelled. That's NOT how you should treat a teacher, no matter what.

I don't think the FML could have been clearer when it said "She got suspended"

Ack! Your going to make people do their own work? *throws hot coffee at you*

This would be one of the very few FMLs where someone suggesting legal action isn't an OVER-reaction. Press charges against the little bitch.

While that's a great idea it may depend on the school's course of action. If the school doesn't want the police involved and will discipline the kid internally it can get complicated.

It's not really up to the school what OP does. If OP wants to have the police involved, the school can't really say anything

I'm hoping she gets expelled, and I hope there are no other students like this that you deal with on a daily basis.

She needs more than a suspension! You could have been badly hurt. Really sorry OP, teachers go through way more than they should.

She needs to be given the gift of stainless steel bracelets. That is assault.

im wondering where she got hot coffee. i know, insensitive, but other people covered that. i cover the logic questions.

Did/does your school/college not have a canteen or cafe?

Mathalamus 24

i have never seen a school that sells coffee. must be the kind of school i went to.

I don't see the logic in this question. She could have got the hot coffee at any number of places, a cafeteria, a coffee shop or even a gas station nearby, perhaps she has a very well insulated travel mug?

I'm not sure why you're having trouble finding logic in OP having hot coffee..... I always take a mug of coffee to school with me and it stays hot for a good while, but I can't say I've ever thrown it on one of my teachers.

Both myself and my boyfriend went to "disadvantaged" schools. They both had canteens that sold tea, coffee and, even, hot chocolate and other food and drink items. His school was even considered more disadvantaged than mine, so the students got tokens every week so they could get either a free breakfast (toast or cereal and tea or coffee) or a free dinner and drink in the school everyday. The college I go to is considered not the greatest in facilities either and lacks serious funding, but we still have a Starbucks, a Costa, a snack room and a massive canteen; all of which sells tea, coffee and hot chocolate...Which leads to the question: did you get your education out in a forest?

My school had nothing but water fountains and a milk.vending machine. We couldn't bring our own coffee or drinks in any containers because "it might have booze in it". This is from a rural area in PA and a school of about 4000 kids.

My school had 2 soda machines and you had to chug what you bought because it wasn't allowed in the classrooms.

Not usually what people mean when they say, “Feel the ‘Bern’” lately, but I think it applies here. Hope you heal quickly so you can stop feeling it soon.

what does this incident have anything to do with Sanders? Or politics in general?

why was this voted down? it's funny

Because OP got burned... "burn" is pronounced the same as "Bern." Does this really need to be explained? You know the phrase "feel the burn" wasn't invented for Bernie Sanders, right?

I'm assuming she's a teen and its sad how this generation expects so many handouts. she'll get a wake up call soon.

Why assume she's a teen? I'm in my 30's and I know some ass-hats like this who are my age.
