"The bell doesn't dismiss you, I dismiss you" refers to a catchphrase spoken by teachers after the bell has rung but who have not yet concluded their lesson. The expression has become a frequent source of mockery and jokes in Vine and YouTube videos.
While origin of the expression is unknown, it first appeared online when Yahoo Answers user Evan asked, "Does the bell legally dismiss students?" On May 18th, 2010, user Fishguy answered the question with, "'The bell doesn't dismiss you, I dismiss you.' It's always been the rule as far back as I remember…"
On September 11th, 2014, Twitter user @tbhjuststop posted two pictures (shown below) of teachers blocking doorways under the caption "Teachers be like "the bell doesn't dismiss you I dismiss you." Within three years, the tweet had amassed more than 5,800 retweets and 7,600 likes.
Less than six months later, on February 25th, 2016, Twitter user @dooleyfunny posted a video of himself arguing with teachers under the caption "Teachers be like 'the bell don't dismiss you I do' 😴😴😴." Within two years, the post has recieved more than 24,100 retweets and 19,300 likes. When the YouTuber Afro Vines mirrored the video on YouTube less than a week later, the video received more than 130,000 views.
That month, two more videos entitled "The Bell Doesn't Dismiss You, I Dismiss You" appeared online. YouTuber 4YallEntertainment posted a comedy sketch (shown below, left) on March 16th and received more than 420,000 views. The other, a Vine from Jay Versace (shown below, right) posted in March 2015 has over 7,100 views on YouTube.
