Today I was totally thunderstruck when Cass told me that she wore her PE t-shirt that her friend had dropped on the school’s wet and dirty toilet floor! If you are a product of Malaysia’s public schools, you will know just how dirty, wet and stinky these toilets are. Totally disgusting.
Cass had asked her bestie to follow her to the toilet to change into their PE t-shirt in the morning. After she had passed her PE t-shirt to her friend to hold, her friend dropped it on the stinky floor! For fear of getting punished by the PE teacher for not wearing PE attire, Cass wore the stinky and wet t-shirt anyway. Oh. My. GAWD!! I get crazy thinking just how she could have worn the stinky and wet t-shirt!! There must have been some rocks in her head!
I gave Cass a long lecture on how she has to use her discretion and her brain to think when situations like these happen. I told her that she has to learn to speak up and have the guts to tell her teachers of what happened. She ain’t going to wear a t-shirt smeared with shit just to avoid being punished. She has to learn to speak up for her rights. I hope she has learnt a lesson today.
