DP Daily Prompt: Cringe Worthy

Once in the school where I taught the principal  decided to let my colleagues class have Art instead of mine. It was supposed to be the turn of my class.I sent mine on the particular time. Moments later they came back grumbling that the Art teacher sent them back. She was told that the french teacher’s class would have Art instead of mine. I was known as someone who lets everyone walk all over me  and I never say Boo.Mr. Principal was feeling quite comfortable doing this to me yet again. I had in seconds heard my mind saying,’squeaky wheel gets the grease’, I was livid,I wasted no time and arrived in the Principal’s office, this time I was making a case for my thirty children,who always look up to me.

I told him it was too bad her kids missed Art the previous week. I didn’t think it was  my fault  or my nine year old kids. The Principal had his mouth wide open,what Mrs.Asgar is complaining? Not knowing what to do because I was furious, he told me you can send your kids too. I felt uncomfortable doing what I did,but I couldn’t disappoint my kids. So this is one day I stood my ground.I was embarrassed at my behaviour.
