Mean ol' grouch

I lost my temper tonight at work. I didn't yell or anything, but I was very short with a student. And now I feel guilty. For being short with her. For telling her she should have known this from months ago. And for judging her for something just because I don't understand how it is possible to not understand things I find so easy.

I have a hard time. I never know if people don't get things because they are lazy or bored or dumb or what. And I know I shouldn't judge them for something just because it is not what I would do. But, I have a really hard time with someone who is repeating something they have learned months ago and that should be second nature to them by now. I mean, if half way through Grade 2 a kid looked at the teacher and said "What is "F" again??" wouldn't there be a problem here?

So tomorrow I am going to apologize. In the mean time, I am going to let good christian guilt eat at my stomach. No wonder I have ulcers.

  1. You weren't that mean, and it needed to be said. How can someone intentially give poor service because they don't care enough to try? If that is the case, maybe they should show themselves the door. Umm...buhbye!


Crap monkies say "what?"
