It does not matter whether you are stupid or intelligent. The bottom line is, if you don’t have the manner to treat the very person that teaches you day in and day out, you are just asking for it. Manners, or ‘adab’ or the lack of it, or ‘kurang ajar’ is simply not tolerated in my vicinity. When somebody comes into your class, and you pretend like you’re deaf and dumb, how do you think the person think? Especially the person is the very person that will teach you something that you don’t even know exists before? The person is not asking for any type of standing ovation but at least do acknowledge the other person’s existence. Don’t be so rude. And don’t be so ignorant. Maybe your parents haven’t taught you well, but when you have been told a couple of hundred gazillion times, do put that into that thick head of yours. We have some manners of etiquette that we live by. Some people don’t follow it because they think it’s bullshit. However, until you are qualified and allowed to even think all this is bullshit, you are hereby adhered to the rules and regulations listed by the institution that you are currently residing in. Not that hard of a thing to do, right? Considering the fact you are still a minor and what you say will be supported or neglected by the powers that be, you have to follow the rules and regulations. Even the food on the table is not yours, not even the clothes on your body. So don’t pretend you are so smart and able to live by yourself, because the fact is you would not have been here if it wasn’t for those people that you are ashamed to acknowledge. Do have a bit of courtesy and wipe that smug of your face and sit up straight and don’t slump on the chair and don’t talk when somebody is explaining something and answer when people ask you things. Do you know how annoying it is to ask something and get ignored instead. Because we are the ones who will stay here when you out there, fending for yourself, and asking respect in return from somebody that deserve your respect but don’t want to give it.
