I have two “True” & bad incidents to share (which happened in my life):
(i) A newly transfered “head of Math” in my former high school responded rudely (for “no” reason) toward my request to “have his permission signature so that I may compete in my last chance at the Malaysian National Mathematical Olympiad or OMK 2002”:
He said “you no need to go for all these competitions because cannot do it”.
(ii) Once, I believe I arrived a little late for my “General Knowledge” (Pengajian Am) STPM tuition class.
That tuition teacher responded in front of the whole class:
“you are a disgrace to your race & because of people like you, you give a bad name”.
But God had other plans toward their insults.
(i) I won 2nd place in the “highest individual” (Sulong Category) with a “perfect score” (full marks) at OMK 2002.
The professor later told me that since he can’t give two no.1 positions, he opted to give the other person first place on account that his solution was “better written” though both are correct.
(ii) I got an “A” for my “Pengajian Am” in my STPM exam in 2002.
Today, I am a teacher/educator too.
Moral of the story?
Never use “harsh insults” toward any student especially for “trivial things” & remember that “only God is Perfect”.
Therefore, learn to “forgive easily” and don’t be a “racist” or an “evil person” especially when you’re a teacher in some capacity be it in a school or otherwise.
I *never* took a revenge for their hateful statements toward me & continued to respect them regardless, even forgiving them too (for the Lord’s sake).
# I’m not sure if I should be writing about myself like this. Lol, haha, hehe. But I guess it’s important to share so that we may be edified by it.
