Ego issues

Daily prompt-Ready,Set,Done.

Starve your ego,feed your soul.

Today something happened in class that got me thinking about how big a person’s ego can be.

Recently I had my mid term exams.Today our teacher announced that the papers had been corrected and we could come and check our marks.So as I hear, a guy from our class,lets name him Mr.X went to see his papers as well.I think he expected more marks so he began arguing with the teacher about how she didn’t teach according to the textbook.I mean who talks like that.Did he expect to be spoonfed every detail from the textbook?That was one thing.Instead of being polite in asking her where he went wrong,Mr.X was rude.

This hurt my teacher deeply as she had put her soul into teaching us this subject.She was one of the best teachers in our dept. I’d often heard other classes complaining about how poorly they were taught this subject and how they wish they had our teacher.

When she asked him in class why he did so,he bluntly replied “I’m sorry if I was rude,but I don’t think I was.” Seriously?An ego filled apology.I even saw a tear slip out of the corner of her eye.I couldn’t understand how someone could be so insensitive to sadness.What would he lose if he just said those three words “I am sorry”.I don’t get it how some people these days can talk like that to someone in authority,without any feelings of guilt or regret.Would he lose a little of his ego,if he apologized?

Now,thanks to Mr.X our teacher got so mad that she has stopped teaching like the way she used to.So who suffers because of Mr.X?The entire class.

So why i’m telling you people all this?I was really upset with Mr.X’s attitude towards our teacher,and writing this made me feel better.I  even tried talking some sense into Mr.X but he was adamant.

      Thank you:) I know sometimes we students can be difficult to handle.Also I know how much effort each teacher puts into taking even one class.We should at least respect her for that.
      I hope the Mr.X in your class isn’t causing too much trouble lately.

    How about talking to your teacher and telling her you like how she teaches? If enough of you do this, perhaps she’ll go back to taching the way that is natural for her and the way you all prefer.

    Ugghh I so know where you are coming from Jess, We have not just one but so many Mr. and Miss. X’s in our class. And we have so massively payed the price for it, The teacher gets so angry at all of us and it effects our grades too sadly.
    Sorry you guys had to go through it too, I don’t know how to avoid these situations though 😦
