DP Daily Prompt: Plead the Fifth

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

What question do you hate to be asked ? Why?

When I started teaching, I was asked many times, what is your grade certificate?

I will explain what this means when we apply for a teaching position in the province where I live, the department of education reviews our educational qualification and they give us a certificate on which they print the grade. This is essential, it helps  to know what someone’s salary ought to be on the basis of the grade certificate.

There was one particular teacher, who wanted to know what my salary was. The moment anyone finds out about the grade they instantly know what that person’s salary is.

She annoyed me a number of times, eventually she found out. Her mother was a secretary in the department of education!

365 Writing Prompts: Back to the future

A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future.To whom would you send something, and what would you write?

Realistically speaking I cannot think of sending messages to any one if I’m unable to understand what kind of service will be invented in the future.

It seems so unreal, but if I become an optimist and make myself believe there will be an invention and I will have the opportunity to send messages to people I have met along the way, I certainly would send a message to a young lady I met a while ago.

One winter morning I met a young girl in the shopping center, I don’t know who she was, I was worried how to climb the snow bank to get on the pavement, I almost wanted to turn around to find a spot where the path was clear. I was surprised when she offered to help me, “I will  help  you to get to the pavement”, she said.

To this day my mind wonders who she was, if I can miraculously locate her wherabouts, I will use this service to write a  note to her, the message will read, “thank you for helping me that morning,  you are the reason this world is  a wonderful place to live in.”
