We all know the World Cup Panini stickers can be a popular hobby in World Cup years. One teacher proved the popularity of the stickers in a somewhat unprecedented and disgusting act. 

In Colombia, a teacher has been accused of stealing stickers from one of their students for the sake of boosting their own collection. 

A student had their stickers confiscated after the teacher in question caught stickers being exchanged during class. The same student later saw said teacher putting the confiscated material into their personal book. 

For shame, teacher. 

"It's no way to give an example to young ones, taking stickers away for your own benefit," the mother of the student told radio station RCN.
