MIAMI - JUNE 16: English teacher Radka Tomasek speaks to the class at the English Center June 16, 2006 in Miami, Florida. The school holds adult education classes that include English language classes for people who have immigrated to the United States. U.S. President George W. Bush recently said, ?Part of the greatness of America is that we've been able to help assimilate people into our society... And part of that assimilation process is English. I believe this: If you learn English, and you're a hard worker, and you have a dream, you have the capacity from going from picking crops to owning the store, or from sweeping office floors to being an office manager.?

Oh, how we love Buzzfeed!

There’s no doubt that kids say the darndest things. One of my first jobs was as a camp counselor and the children were honest…sometimes brutally honest! If I was having a bad hair day, or if they didn’t like the colors I was wearing they would make sure I was the first to know! I can’t imagine what teachers go through on a daily basis. Buzzfeed asked teachers to share the biggest insults they’ve ever received from kids. Warning…some are pretty harsh!

Insults teachers have gotten from students include:

  • “I asked a kindergartener to join the line so we could go to the library, and he said, ‘Why don’t you lick my chicken nuggets’ and pointed to his genital area.”
  • “A student once grabbed my face and told me I had the face of a man and the nose of a dog.”
  • “I was working with a student when a fly kept buzzing around me. The student looked at me and said, ‘It’s flying around you because it knows you’re dirty!'”
  • “Sixth-grade student: ‘Are you getting enough sleep at night?’ Me: ‘Uhh yes? Why?’ Student: ‘Because those bags under your eyes are turning into mattresses.’”
  • “I was talking about the Disney Princesses to one of my preschool students. I said, ‘This one is Belle. She has brown hair, like me!’ He replied, ‘You’re not pretty like a princess, though.’”
  • “A child in my class came up and said, ‘Can I give you a hug because you’re all squishy around the middle like a teddy bear.’ I had a salad for dinner after that.”
  • “I was about 6-7 months pregnant when one of my third graders turned to me and said, ‘You know, you don’t look pregnant. You just look like you’re getting fat.'”
  • “I couldn’t tell if I had makeup smudged under one of my eyes or not, so I asked a student to look. She examined me pretty intensely, then said, ‘No, I think you’re just old.'”
  • “A little girl asked me (a man) if I was pregnant. I said I was pretty sure I wasn’t. She informed me there is a test I could take to find out for sure.”
