‘Confession’ – 2

(No need to add any other comments to the ones below)

Dear (X) – One of the many things I’ve done in life that has been valuable is learn how to write English for a Master’s thesis. I also taught English for some time, and that helped too. So I have a few comments on your first attempt to write this so-called apology. 1. Saying how old you are is irrelevant. 2. You might want to reference a few other time-tested teachers who define Enlightenment. 3. As this is theoretically an apology, it’s good to be truthful. Saying that you made your students’ lives “difficult” is beyond a lie. You pathologically enjoyed torturing us. 4. There is a flaw in saying that you apologize only to those who read this so-called apology. If you are truly engaged in the work you say you are, you need to rethink this statement. 5. Oxymoron alert! There is no integrity in continuing to teach at the same time as you step down because you realize your ego is still getting in your and your students’ ways. 6. You’re actually “looking forward” to working with some of the students who have borne the brunt of your being “difficult”??? From a comprehension point of view, this defies comprehension. Better luck on your next draft.

… it is good to see he is starting to awaken. Hopefully he will one day fully apologise for the damage he has done to many human beings…

you must be kidding.
