A colleague of mine was verbally abused by an expat parent earlier today.
She was shouted at in front of the whole auditorium.
I felt for her.
At the same time, I hoped and prayed that that incident would not happen to me or anyone else.
At that point of time, I asked myself.
...."and they said, a teacher has it easy."
If you regard cleaning childrens' backsides or being verbally demoralized by a parent easy, then you have never worked before.
It's so hard to swallow rude behaviour when you have done nothing but the best.
