We have a teacher on our school. Everyone else hates him, or at the very most just don't like him. He's incredibly knowledgeable in his field, but is just plainly horrible when it comes to the human aspect of teaching and he seems to always be in a foul mood. He's been caught breaking the school rules a number of times and a friend of mine, after walking past him reading his e-mail, said that his inbox was full of complaints. I have however seen him smile, and tried to crack a joke or two, but no-one seem to care. After I've heard how his life had been fucked over my heart sunk and I feel really bad for the guy. I suspect he might just be really sad, and I just wish to give him a hug and maybe brighten his day. But I'm scared, not just of the others, a few select knows I think they are rude, but mostly of being wrong, and finding out that he is just an a*s.. I just can't bear listening to the others talk sh*t about him. I want to scream at them, but then again, I don't want to paint him in a "condescending light".
