exploitation.

story #1 | The Lecturer

During my mother’s college days, she was fortunate enough to get a brilliant lecturer who innovatively approaches the concepts that he teaches in his classes. But the class students ridiculed his accent.

Does it seem fair?

It obviously doesn’t. But we all have done it, haven’t we?

When he’s been told that his accent was subjected to ridicule, he told that he’s well aware of it. He also mentioned that he was fine with it and chose not to comment on it any further.

So, why was he fine with it? Because he’s beyond all of us, that’s why.

story #2 | The Colleague

My cousin mentioned a colleague who gets to do everybody’s work just because they are ‘off for the day’ or when they wanted to get off of work early. This is not uncommon or wrong because there’ll always be uncertainties.

But the real reason why he mentioned this particular person was because his team members were exploiting him without any bounds just because he won’t say no to their requests.

When my cousin told him that his team members are deliberately piling him with their work so that they can get off early, he said he’s well aware of it. He added that it's good for him because it will improve the understanding of the project as well — of course, with a smile.

So, why was he fine with it? Because he’s beyond all of us, that’s why.
