Today, a pupil alerted me to a carving that another student had made on the main door of my teaching room (he or she probably used a compass).
The legend read:
" Mr X Sucks Cock".
If a student feels the need to insult me in such a way, it means I must be doing something right and I'm really quite honoured.
Mr X has definitely arrived, but I hope the caretaker gives the door a good lick of paint by the morning because this isn't the kind of reputation I wish to foster, thank you very much.
