Homework Help: science (chem)

This pertains to using a pasteur pipette.

I have this weird problem when I use a pasteur pipette.
I go and draw the liquid into the pipette and as I'm transfering the liquid to another container it sporatically squirts the liquid in the pipette out as If I had intentionally did that. (It isn't good especially when chemicals are flying all over the place)

Why does this happen with the glass pasteur pipette but not with the plastic pipettes??
Also the glass pasteur pipettes have a tendency to leak as well which is frustrating...

Is it that I'm using the pipette improperly??
