I genuinely feel bad for teachers these days…

And this story illustrates my feelings to a tee.

A teacher named Kevin talked to TikTok viewers about why he ended up quitting a teaching job…on the first day.

Kevin said that his first day on the job as a teacher was in August 2023 and he already had major reservations.

He explained, “I don’t want this. I went to school for no reason. I thought I could handle it.”

Kevin added, “These kids are just mean. They’re rude, they’re smelly, they were sneezing everywhere. So today’s my last day.”

That’s rough…
