When water bottles don’t make it into the recycling bin and nobody picks it up, and when they’re thrown in the trash.

When students walk out of the classroom after last period before the final “amen” is said after prayer.

Although some of the pet peeves are unjust, there will always be the battle between those educating and those being educated. Just remember to always be courteous and respectful to both teachers and students, no matter who you are.
