Today, I returned to my teaching job at a local community college after surfing for the weekend. I'd got sunburned, one student immediately noticed and said to me, "Morning, Mr. Pinky!" Now they all do it. My students are assholes. I hate teaching. FML

Actually, this is pretty flattering!

if this is the worst they have come up with, I don't think you're doing too bad.

I'm sure I'll get downthumbed for this but really grinds my gears.

I hope this attitude of yours doesn't show when you're teaching, OP. assholes? really? perhaps you treat them like assholes, so they act like assholes to you.
there are too many teachers that can't find a job. maybe rethink your career choice, OP. someone out there won't mind teaching those "assholes."
we have to teach these kids to be more respectful.

I don't even think they were even trying to be mean or mess with him. It's a joke and it's funny. Lighten up and I bet your job teaching will be much more fun. Joke around with them, even come up with a better nickname, "uhh that's Mr. Crispy thank you very much."

Oh the times! Humor or not, when I think about my time in school, we'd NEVER would have dared to call our teachers with nicknames. Call me square or outdated, but I think unrespectful are students the real problem here and not a teacher who can't take a joke.

And seriously, if that's the worst your students have said to you than you've had it pretty easy. While college-aged students should be more mature, OP either needs to grow a thicker skin or find a new profession.

Gee, considering how the MLP fandom keeps flashing their status as horse-loving manchildren at the slightest mention of words like "pink", I think people will be reminded of it and "get the reference".

I'm a teacher and a vocal advocate for my profession, but sometimes students are assholes (I've got two published FMLs to prove it) and sometimes my job really sucks. Sometimes I hate it, complain about it, and threaten to quit. Doesn't mean I'm not a good or passionate teacher-- it means I'm a human being who gets frustrated with her job like everyone else. Though OP should toughen up a bit, I can see how this situation would be annoying.
