30 of the Funniest Times Students Spotted Their Teachers Outside of the Classroom

When you’re a kid, it doesn’t occur to you that your teacher has a life outside of the classroom. But like anyone else, they have an array of interests and hobbies that have nothing to do with their profession. Like one Redditor, who was at the store and saw their English teacher shoplifting underwear. You never really know who’s a panty thief in their spare time, but you definitely don’t expect it from the person teaching you about iambic pentameter. 

To that end, Redditors have cackled about the funny, awkward or shocking times they spotted their teachers in the wild, and a lot of these educators know how to party.

nickasummers . 7y I had a college professor who was a massive dick. Не would mark down your grade for asking questions if he thought the question was dumb.

iamkuato . 7y It's never awkward for me. But one of my favorite times it was awkward for them was at a local music festival. This was one of those 3-day-weekend things where everyone is enjoying some sort of mind-altering experience or another. I ran into a group of students who were just blazed (tripping on something) - I mean barely functional. I let them try to play it off for a while before I showed mercy and moved on. They tried so hard to seem sober. Freaking hilarious. ... 1.2k

My mom had to go to the store for something, but didn't want to leave me home alone, so I went with her, despite my 101(F) fever. We're at checkout and I see my teacher, and he's seen me. Panicking, I told him that I'm sick and not playing hooky. Не laughed and said he was.

miss0tique . 7y 17, senior year. Snuck into a 21 and up bar with some friends that were not from my school. Get to bar and wait to order drink, bartender is current Art Teacher. Something she likes to do on weekends I assumed. We stare at each other for 2 seconds then she asks what'll it be for all of us. Order gin and tonic, she serves me drink, and we go about our night. School was the same, so 10/10 would drink with art teacher again. Gin and tonic was good too. ... 3k
CuseHuh 7y I was baby sitting for one of the high school teachers probably when I was in 10th or 11th grade. Him and his wife get home and I call my dad to come pick me up and I was just hanging out in the kitchen waiting for him, chatting with the wife about the kids.
