I am in new the town and at this school and it entails some disadvantages.
Today during the break time some boys were playing football when the head girl came to us saying it was dangerous to play so close to a group of kids who were in the playground also.
All the rest of the boys, stopped playing and started to walk further but I led the way and complained to the head girl arguing that we were only passing softly the ball, no really playing a game, so there was not risk at all.
She showed herself surprised and angry when I talked back to her, so she ordered me to walk towards a corner of the playground to stay there for the rest of the break, facing to the wall with my hands on my head.
I simply laughed at her and went towards the place my mates were playing now, whilst I saw her, red in anger, rushing to the school building.
A few minutes later, she came back with a note signed by the Headmistress for me. It was clear I was into trouble by then.
When I entered into the Head’s study she was standing, waiting for me cane in hand.
She simply said:
"Boy, let me give you an advice that will make your life much easier during your stay in this school.
When a female gives you an order, it’s in your best interest to obey it promptly.“
After that, eighteen hard cuts of her cane, reinforced that message in a clear and lasting way.
