‘Love Struck’ Child
The pretty young schoolteacherwas concerned about a 12-year
old student. One day theteacher asked the student, “Raj,
why is it your schoolwork has become so bad lately?”
“I can’t concentrate,” Raj said. “I’ve fallen in love.”
“Is that so?” the teacher said with a smile. “With whom?”
“With you,” Raj answered.
“But, Raj,” said the teacher, “don’t you see how silly this is? It’s true that I want a husband of my own one day, but I don’t want a child.”
“Oh, don’t worry teacher,” Raj said reassuringly. “I’ll be very careful.”
A person’s words can be misconstrued by another party. This can lead to unintended consequences.
