Why?

So the elementary school kid’s PE teacher told the class (ages 8 and 9) about his PE teacher. So his PE teacher, if the kids did not get ready in 4 minutes, would come into the locker room and disregard what and how the kids were dressed (or not), and come close to their faces and yell at them for not dressing up on time. Or he would twist the fingers of the kids in a painful manner.

I wonder why our PE teacher thought it a good thing to tell this story about his teacher, to his students. Traumatize them? Passive aggressive way of discipline? An emotionally hurt former kid now relaying his childhood terrors to the next generation? What? Aren’t teachers supposed to know better, than relay horrors to the kids?

What was his motivation?
