Second grade teacher kept marking my paper with a horrible grade.
When I was a kid in the second grade, we had a teacher who taught us how to write in cursive. I'll call the teacher Mrs. K. She would be a good teacher if she only stopped giving my paper a bad grade. Every Thursday, a woman would come in and she and Mrs. K were clearly friends. I never knew the woman's name so I'll call her Miss T. As said, Miss. T would come in every Thursday and show us how to print letters of the alphabet as well as show us the difference between capital letters and small letters. Miss. T would write some letters on the chalkboard and when she left, Mrs. K would have us write down the letters on a piece of paper. Every time I wrote the letters down, I did my best to make them clear and readable by taking my time. However, the next day,when I was at my desk and got my paper back, Mrs. K had stamped my paper with a sad duck with tears in its eyes and the word "UGLY" underneath the duck. This actually hurt me very much and when I managed to get a look at the papers of other students, their paper was stamped with words of praise. As far as I know, I was the only student who had the ugly duckling stamp no matter how hard I tried. Every time I saw it, not only did it make me sad but, looking back on it now, I wish that I had started crying loudly so that I could not only embarrass Mrs. K but, so that she would feel guilty for giving me such a horrible grade.Oct 28
Did you go to school in Redmond, WA. By chance?
No. First Street School in Pennsylvania.
You probably reminded her of an ex.
What does that have to do with me getting a bad mark on my paper?
Women do stuff like that - in their own mind they are getting revenge. Amazing what horrible ** they will justify.
Revenge for what?
