Ok why do teachers get mad at students wearing hats in class? Today my teacher said something like its rude to wear hats in a building (class) and he said he was trying to change his ways because he is older. He also said something about texting (bc students were texting in the back) but didn't really get too angry, and just said its give and take. Is it that rude to wear a hat or text in class? I mean i'm paying to go to school and i should be able to do what i want in class as long as its not distracting other students?
