The world is round, not flat like capathi.

On Saturday, we had double periods of Maths for the last two periods of school. It was 5 minutes before the bell rang.

Our Maths teacher asked us to do 2 questions. She added, “If you can’t finish your work, then you don’t go back.”

I looked at my friend and said, “What if I don’t finish my homework and make teacher wait until 2pm? Will she want to wait for me?”

My friend kept silent for a while and  replied, “Haihyah, as long as you don’t make her cry la, then it’s okay.”

I asked her, “If students can’t make teachers cry, can teachers make students cry?”

The bell rang. And our Maths teacher said, “Thank you class.”

On the other hand…

On Friday, we had our prayer meeting after school. I was leading and we were praying for our protection over our school. Then we prayed for our teachers.

But before we did, I told them that sometimes, we should understand a teacher’s background. Maybe they came from another state, and they do not have friends, they are lonely. After all, they too are humans. So we should be considerate, and still respect them as teachers, no matter how boring or how crappy they may be.

It is funny. The ‘persoalan’ is, how can teachers gain respect from students, when they cry and then throw their temper? Doesn’t that reflect what they do not learn in teacher’s college?

How can teachers gain respect from students, when they are suppose to be mature adults, teaching the next generation, when they do not think before they talk? When they do not mean what they say?

How can teachers gain respect from students, when they give advice on life when it totally doesn’t hit reality? When students thought that teachers has been through so much more in life than they have?

How can a teacher gain respect from students, when they side the ones they like and pick on those who comes from a lousy class with looks of a criminal in their eyes? Where is that justice student’s hope for in the area of discipline in school?

Conclusion: The world is round, not flat like capathi.

    “If students can’t make teachers cry, can teachers make students cry?”

    Yuppers. But not every one of them.

    This kakanda is in midst of conflict management/resolution also … Dunno how things will work out lah. Just pray and hope in God.

    People, people. Sometimes it’s all too easy to crawl under the table and hide and stay there. Bleargh.

    I learned today that the earth is not round. It’s actually flatter at the north and south poles and is an ellipsoid. Which means it looks kinda like a hard-boiled egg lying on its side.🙂
