Little kids can do some outlandish things like scream and whine, but you might be surprised to find out that some young students have manipulated the situation to such an extent that it almost cost teachers’ their jobs. Teenage students can be even worse as some pose an actual threat to school administrators’ safety. Read on and discover a newfound respect for the teachers you grew up with.

Reddit user MimosasMadeMeDoIt writes that one spoiled little girl she had would throw daily tantrums. The moment something did not go her way, the girl would scream. The worst case the preschool teacher could remember was one day when the girl came into class in a noticeably dreadful mood.

The teacher tried to calm the girl down and was met with a punch in the jaw! Apparently the girl, “packed a pretty good punch for a 5-year-old.” Rather than getting into trouble, the little girl was not reprimanded by the school since her parents made generous donations to the school’s director.
