Unable To Orchestrate Your Plan

| Singapore | Learning | November 11, 2015

(The maths class has just finished, and my teacher approaches me.)

Teacher: “Hey, do you think you can teach some of the weaker students maths during recess? Your test results are very good.”

Me: “Sorry, but I am busy training my juniors during recess. I’m afraid I don’t have any more time to teach others.”

(To clarify, I’m responsible for teaching the underclassmen violin during recess, since I belong to the school string orchestra.)

Teacher: “Can you tell whoever is responsible to let you off then?”

Me: “I am.”

(My teacher looked slightly shocked and embarrassed!)
