This story is about Tyler, a young man who found himself in a sticky situation during his high school years. Faced with a teacher that refused to mark papers correctly, Tyler took it upon himself to serve up some own-brand revenge – with disastrous consequences! Let’s take a look.
A Teacher With a Terrible Reputation
It all started a couple of years ago, back in October 2021.
Tyler had just completed his high school diploma, but decided to go back for a fifth year to improve some of his grades.
The Worst Teacher Ever
During his previous year, Tyler had the misfortune of having a teacher nicknamed Mr. Lazy.
Mr. Lazy had a notorious reputation for being a terrible teacher.
Students’ Efforts to Avoid His Classes
Students would go to great lengths to switch out of their classes or drop them altogether.
Unfortunately, Tyler didn’t make the same choice!
He ended up with Mr. Lazy as his grade 12 physics teacher at the university level.
Lack of Organization and Structure
To Tyler’s disappointment, Mr. Lazy hardly talked about physics at all.
In fact, he didn’t even have a syllabus, a schedule, or even a Google Classroom, which was quite common in schools in Ontario.
Instead, Mr. Lazy stored all his files on an unorganized Google drive, showcasing his laziness.
Negligent Marking and Assessments
Marking was another task that Mr. Lazy loathed. Instead of proper assessments, he relied on online multiple-choice tests.
But these tests held little significance, as Mr. Lazy would simply assign grades based on what he thought each student deserved.
The Dismal Final Mark
Tyler had been doing fairly well in the class, maintaining an 86% average; however, when he received his final mark, it showed a dismal 72%!
This devastated Tyler – it meant his university applications would be affected.
Mr. Lazy’s negligence cost him the opportunity to pursue the programs he desired!
Inquiring About the Low Grade
Driven by frustration, Tyler sent an email to Mr. Lazy inquiring about the low final mark.
He highlighted his previous 86% average and questioned how such a significant drop could occur when the lab was only worth 5% of his grade.
Unfortunately, Mr. Lazy never bothered to respond.
Mr. Lazy’s Negligence Continues
Determined to resolve the issue, Tyler enlisted the help of his mother, who sent an email to the principal detailing the situation.
Only then did Mr. Lazy bother to address Tyler’s lab.
But instead of providing constructive feedback, he simply returned it with a score of zero without any explanation.
An Unjust Zero
In Ontario, it was almost unheard of to receive a zero on a 7-page lab, regardless of its quality.
Mr. Lazy had failed to provide any guidelines or expectations for the assignment.
After writing the lab, Tyler had asked his mother’s opinion, who, as a high school science teacher and former engineer, deemed the lab worthy of around 80%.
Taking Matters Into His Own Hands
Disheartened by the lack of support from his school, Tyler decided to take matters into his own hands.
He felt the need for revenge against Mr. Lazy’s negligence.
He Had a Plan
His plan involved printing stickers that depicted a scathing message: “I would rather watch TV than mark a lab -Mr. Lazy.”
A talented family friend, who happened to be a graphic designer, created a quick design for the stickers, and Tyler then ordered them from a website.
A Country in Lockdown
Unfortunately, before he could execute his plan, the COVID-19 lockdown was reinstated, and schools remained closed.
Undeterred, Tyler patiently waited for the following year to put his plan into action.
Strategically Placing the Stickers
When the time came, Tyler plastered the stickers everywhere he could think of, ensuring Mr. Lazy would be confronted with them constantly.
He strategically placed them on his door and along his daily routes.
In addition, he left piles of stickers around the school, hoping that fellow students would join in his cause – which they did.
Mr. Lazy was short, so Tyler made sure to place the stickers in hard-to-reach areas like fire exit signs and ceilings.
In total, he managed to stick 200 of them around the school!
The Irony in Mr. Lazy’s Actions
On multiple occasions, Tyler observed Mr. Lazy scraping off the stickers in frustration.
Tyler couldn’t help but find irony in Mr. Lazy’s actions.
He spent more effort removing the stickers than he would have if he had simply marked Tyler’s lab.
Confrontation and Consequences
Unfortunately for Tyler, his mission came to an abrupt end when a teacher caught him in the act.
Soon, he found himself facing a group of stern vice principals, demanding an explanation for his actions.
Calling Out Inaction
In response, Tyler asked them why they had never raised his mark with Mr. Lazy, and they all fell silent, so he took the opportunity to express his disappointment with their lack of intervention.
The people who were supposed to look after students’ wellbeing were the very same ones ignoring it.
Unfortunately, he took his crusade too far, boldly calling them lazy and incompetent, which did NOT help his situation!
Expulsion and a Bold Stand
In the end, the school authorities deemed Tyler’s actions premeditated, targeted, and labeled it as harassment!
As punishment, Tyler was expelled and banned from the school grounds, while Mr. Lazy took a brief hiatus but soon returned to “teach” at the same school.
Despite the consequences, Tyler had no regrets. If he had a second chance, he’d do it all again, only with even more stickers this time!
