Reverse Gifts

Here's one of those things that makes me feel like I'm very far down the rabbit hole.

A teacher at my school was hospitalised for minor surgery so he was away for almost a week. Unfortunately it was the first week of term and he has a first grade class and at our place the first grade stay over at a nearby center for bonding. So it was kind of tough for everyone to cover but can't be helped because the guy had emergency surgery.

He actually came back on Friday, which I thought was too early, and he had bought us all chocolate gifts to apologise for the trouble! Note that neither the school nor the kids sent any kind of get well gift or flowers, and I was looked at strangely when I asked if we were!

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense"


  1. Oh my goodness that's unbelievable... Well, don't feel bad for asking about a get well gift - that's how people SHOULD behave!

    1. It was a reminder that even after ten years here I will still be confused by things!
