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

They probably mess with you because you can't take a joke. I personally love to mess with people who can't take a joke, and I'm sure others do as well

then don't teach as a career. they seem to be messing around all in good fun. you need a sense of humor to be a professor

That's hot.

Life's too short to get stuck in a job you dislike! Go searching for something that makes you happy, even if it doesn't pay quite as well

Yes 18. Together they can take over the world. Well, at least they can try.

Sorry to say it. But how is it an FML!!??

Aww that's mean.

They probably don't mean it in a mean way though

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.

this guy's way too sensitive

They probably mess with you because you can't take a joke. I personally love to mess with people who can't take a joke, and I'm sure others do as well

They're probably hoping that if they keep trying, one day he'll develop a sense of humour!

I agree. This guy doesn't sound like someone who'd be fun to have as a teacher

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."

the only way to fix this is an idgaf attitude. the ones who get pissy are prime targets for harassment

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 Call me square or outdated, but I think unrespectful are students the real problem here and not a teacher who can't take a joke.

yeah but is name-calling really a joke?

then don't teach as a career. they seem to be messing around all in good fun. you need a sense of humor to be a professor

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.

In home ec are you a pinkie pie?

Let's see how many people get the reference...

I got it, where's my cookie?

#80 I got it. Since you're getting down voted, we'll probably have to split the cookie.

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".

You forgot sunscreen.

Captain obvious strikes again!

No shit? I wouldn't have guessed!

Holy shit you must be captain obvious from those hotel commercials

apparently you do as well .. considering your username. :P

Mr. Pink from Reservoir Dogs ☺️

No way. He's a teacher, Pinky and the Brain!

Then he'd better learn how to "narf" if he wants to truly embrace the Pinky persona.

Shoulda warn sunscreen and YDI for not being passionate about teaching

Hey Kid! Leave Mr. pink alone!

Uhh what? YDI for not liking your job?

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.

#10 "should've" & "worn"

At least you got to go surfing. You should tell the kids to quit it
