    Text - 17 hours ago Choosethebiggerlife 393 points Former high school teacher. Once had a ninth grade boy submit a half-finished assignment with multiple penises drawn on it (both sides of the paper). I asked him what in the world he was thinking and he said his friends had drawn them (yeah right) and that he wanted credit for the work he did. I believe I did give him some credit but I also told him to reconsider turning in that kind of material to his female teacher.

    Text - polkadot8 12.0k points 18 hours ago One time I printed off an essay in a hurry and grabbed all the paper that was on the tray. I was still living at home at the time. Got my essay back a couple weeks later and flipped through it and realized I'd included multiple pages of grocery store coupons/flyers that my dad had printed. Professor made no comment on it but I felt so silly

I printed out my paper in college and didn't realize my mother's recipe was stapled to the back. Got an A and a "thanks for the recipe, it was delicious!"

    Text - roughhewnends 3.4k points 15 hours ago I once had a student send me a screenshot of Lazytown porn with a caption that just said "Love you!" Edit: she didn't accidentally send it instead of an assignment, she accidentally sent it to ME instead of a friend- our emails apparently started with she same combination of letters.

    Text - noctif 17.2k points 16 hours ago In college, someone caught on to the fact that one of the professors never read our weekly essays and instead randomly assigned a grade. One of my friends submitted the same essay every week, just under a different title. He got varying A's and B's on all of them.

    Text - anywherebutarizona 2.8k points 15 hours ago My college roommate wrote poetry. Her assignment started with a B but she sent her poem titled "backseat love" to her professor on accident. Very erotic poem Noticed immediately and frantically ran to his office and supposedly caught him before he opened it. Made him delete it. She was a mess for a week after that though.

    Text - SpacefaringGaloshes 1.9k points 16 hours ago I once pulled an all nighter to finish a paper during exams week, my brain was so fried. My roommate had been helping me edit it so I was giving different versions different titles. The version I ending up submitting was entitled, "itsnotoveruntilthefatwookiesings.docx". Roommate noticed it right after i sent it. I about died then slept for 4 hours. Professor never said a word. I can only hope they too were so burnt out they didn't care.

    Text - flat-ass 17.7k points 15 hours ago 2 Kind of related. My senior year of high school we had one assignment where we had to write a letter to our future selves and our teacher would wait 5 years and send them out. i got my letter this year, and got all excited to read what I had wrote. Imagine my surprise when I opened it and there were two pieces of scratch paper. I had totally forgotten until that moment that as a perennial slacker in high school I hadn't actually done the assignment and

He showed me the assignment that I handed in and the heading read "(my name) has a tiny ass dick" my friends are assholes.

    Text - 15 hours ago ckamp620 427 points I taught a sociology course a few years ago and had a student submit an assignment with, "fuck you, you sexist bitch" as the response to a question. When I asked her about it later, she told me that she often writes in her initial responses or thoughts about questions, and she must have forgotten to delete/change this one!

    Text - Quaznarg 6.1k points 14 hours ago A friend in college changed every instance of the word man into "Batman" in one of my papers. I noticed, and did a find and replace for every instance of Batman. I didn't anticipate there being "Batmen" as well.

    Text - barelyaboveaverag3 5.2k points13 hours ago I used to teach German. A lot of students don't understand how obvious it is when they use Google Translate. But this one submission really stood out. The assignment was just a typical weekly journal entry submitted online. I started reading this one kid's submission and pretty quickly realized that he had written everything in Google Translate... and translated it into Dutch. Not Deutsch. The kid turned in an assignment in the completely wrong l

    Text - 14 hours ago notseansaccount 723 points Somewhat relevant story. I worked as a graduate assistant for a university for their history department. I was basically a glorified paper grader, but I enjoyed it and it paid pretty well. Students had to write a 2-3 page paper on the code of Hammurabi. One person wrote a paper on Harambe
