Time to Write: Random Words 13 July

A three word writing challenge from Rachel this week.

There had been a lot of unrest, secret meetings and collaboration when things had finally come to light, and she had a hidden agenda when she arrived as Guest Speaker at her old school.
Walking through the familiar corridors, she remembered the taunts and bullying tactics from her teenage years, the ridicule and hours of detention at the hands of one who should know better, one who had used and abused their position to climb the ladder of success.

As she took the platform, she shuffled her notes and addressed her audience of staff and parents alike. She kept her personal feelings in check throughout and few anticipated the curve ball she delivered directly to The Principal at the end of her speech.
‘For services NOT rendered and for years of dedicated squandering and misappropriation of school funds for personal gain, I have the ultimate pleasure in confirming your removal from office.
You, Ma’am, are a disgrace to your profession. You have no compassion for your students or your fellow staff, and The Board have sufficient evidence to dismiss you without honour or reference. You have twenty four hours to clear your desk.’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Yay! She must have felt so satisfied delivering the end of her speech! 🙂

    • I thought so. I had one teacher who was a bit of a bully and picked on me all the time in sports because I was heavy, though NOT the heaviest in class, but then my parents weren’t on the Board of Governors.

        It is really sad at how some teachers can be! Sorry about your experience.

      • It’s the way it goes, but it did start me off on the diet fads and worrying about my weight. Thanks ‘Teach’ (not) !

        Sadly some people don’t think about how their words and actions can affect others!

      • Grammar school did me no favours, but I did get one up on the careers teacher (different woman) who said I didn’t have the brains to work in a bank. I served her from First Till position and sweetly asked ‘How would you like your money Miss Barnes?’
        Oh how I wish I could have shown her what I was capable of and responsible for when I was a financial analyst for an International Bank!

      • joyroses13 says:

        Oh that is awesome! I bet she was speechless when you gave her mown to her.
        Great job in becoming a financial analyst for.the bank! That is one job that I know I couldn’t do! Me and numbers just don’t have a good relationship. LOL!

      • She had the grace to flush.
        I loved my job as an analyst as numbers are my thing (you may have guessed actually), but my job was literally to balance the books different ways for four European Offices of the Bank. One report had 69 columns, and they all had to balance, cross balance and cross reference. Bliss. 😀

      • joyroses13 says:

        Oh gosh! It’s good that we have whizzes like you with numbers. If all would be like me, we would be in trouble! LOL! My husband often wishes he would have been an accountant. He loves numbers too.

      • I was always good at mental arithmetic at school, and in later life because I could add up and subtract quickly, people loved me to chalk for them for darts games!

    Well said! Glad something was able to be done about it. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
