I Will Win Yet Again And You Can't Do Anything About It!! (evil laugh)

16th May, it's Teachers Day! My heartfelt love to all the teachers who ever taught me, especially those who amused me, gave me more than enough attention, and inspired me to be one of their kind - one heck of a radical teacher. I was blessed to study under the wings of some of the best teachers in the country.

Anyway, I am waiting for tomorrow.... as our Teacher's Day festivities will be celebrated in school on Monday. Every year I never fail to get the most presents from students. Most of my classes will provide and even some former students of mine who has already left school will send gifts to me.

Gosh, I am super popular...

The secret to this success is; I do ask them directly.
"What are you going to give ME this Teacher's Day?"

Call me someone with the altruism of a cat, or a shameless adult, but if you never ask, you will never get, RIGHT? It's not like I'm forcing them to give me stuff, as I never accept expensive things from students. Believe it or not, I am TEACHING them a lesson many other teachers REFUSED to teach.

If you don't give something, You can never get anything.

And then the lot of you gasped and tore your thinning hair off your scalps - Are YOU teaching youngsters how to bribe?!!! The nerve! The scandal!

Yes and no. But that's life. If you don't give your best, you can never achieve your goal. If you never appease your boss, you will never get that promotion. If you make your colleagues hate you at work, they will never cooperate with you. If you act like the dumb-ass you really are, nobody will want to play with you. If you don't give her flowers and chocolates, you will never get her kiss / into her bed / some extra marks / to know her so you can really start dating (pick your fav) etc etc. The list can go on and on.

I bet when tomorrow ends, the usual comments will be aired without fail like every year; "How he did it? Oh you don't know he's forcing the children to give? By God, look at that mound of gifts on his desk! I've been teaching in this school twice longer than him, yet I get so few...."
I never said I was nice and handsome. But being so bloody fascinating can make students attached to you (and remember you for ages, something to tell the grandchildren). That makes me truly LEGENDARY, eh Rock Chef? :)

Uniqueness rules!

p.s. - Will post the pics of the Teacher's Day celebration soon :) And I think "Fairy Oddparents" is cool. Yay for Crocker!

I want to see the pictures. Since I am a fan of yours, I expect you to get a bundle of presents. You deserve it. You show up at school and herd the kids around and teach them so they can pass the tests. Have a great day at school tomorrow.

First I am a Melayu but I prefer to expres myself in English. Second, I was a temporary teacher once upon a time. For five long years, mind you! However, i was certain it was just not me. Nah! I'll never make a good teacher.
Your comment for that Alice in Wonder Land's poem is rather off-track and quite ticklish too. Me too, I love eating chicken and ducks,

Love the Crocker pic.

You did indeed say you were handsome prior.

I love that you have a celebrated teachers day. That is so awesome I can't stand it. We do not.

A very Happy Teachers Day to you Shadowthorne! Waiting for the pics of your mountain of gifts! :)

PS: Interesting view point. I guess you are right. And yay to you for educating the tiny tots on the weird ways of the world! :)

Rock Chef said...

Being a teacher who is remembered does make you truly Legendary - I pass the title on to you right now!

Hm we don't have Teachers Day here - gifts are given on the last day, when it is too late to be thought of as a bribe!

I did nit really know how those teachers perceived me. I was an asthmatic child and of course, real P.E. is out. However, I came out the better guy these days. Its a lovely profession. At the end of the day have to admit that life itself is an uncompromising teacher.
