Educators everywhere are relating to a viral TikTok video of two teachers hilariously revealing the savage things their students have said to them.

Alissa, a California history teacher who manages @teachinginstyle on TikTok, and her colleague shared the video this week that has since garnered 3.5 million views and comments from fellow teachers detailing what mean things their students have stated.

Alissa — who captioned the video, “Nothing prepares you for the audacity that high schoolers have” — started off the flurry of insults with a student’s jab at her single status: “A kid looked me dead in the eyes and said, ‘It makes sense why you’re not married.’ ”

Her colleague then disclosed how routinely ungrateful one teen was to her.

“At the end of every class I ask my students what they're grateful for, and most students say things like ‘you’ or ‘mom’ or ‘the sun,’ ” she said. ”[But] every day this student says, ‘I’m grateful I get to leave this room.’ ”

Throughout the video, the two teachers took the mean things in stride, laughing each time they recited one.

Some were as short and simple as, “One time a kid told me that he hopes I get hit by a bus,” while others used more imaginative phrasing such as, “One time a kid told me that he thought I would actually be a really good teacher if I didn't have the attention span of a small squirrel.”

One other student, meanwhile, didn't even reveal his loathing verbally, opting to instead go online to judge the teacher’s footwear. “A photo of my shoes that I wear every day to work ended up on a hate account. They got rated 1 out of 5.”

Meanwhile, some of the zingers that teachers shared in the comments section also focused on teacher attire.

“I wore a pair of yellow overalls once and my middle school kids told me I looked like Curious George’s friend. I haven’t worn them since,” one said.

Another teacher also got ridiculed by a cheerleader. “One of my favorite outfits was a green top with these yellow pants,” she wrote. “One of my cheerleaders said I looked like buddy the elf. I haven’t worn it since.”
