Some people are just plain evil.
I like to believe in humanity’s inherent goodness and that not everyone is born evil. That something in their circumstances causes them to be the way they are. This hypothesis, however, does not always hold up, especially when we see stories like these. Some people become drunk on power and fail to recognize that what they are doing is wrong, but power does not change a person; it only reveals their true self. So, even if they claim to be acting as bad cops for the benefit of others, they are acting selfishly at the end of the day.
And the same can be said for Ms. Umbridge. As you might expect, this is not her real name, and she was given it because she resembles the characteristics of the cruel pink loving teacher from the Harry Potter series. I have to say that I disliked her even more than Voldemort, and that is saying a lot. While this Umbridge is not as cruel as her namesake, she comes close with her sweet exterior and cruelness lurking beneath. But one student had had enough when she refused to stop picking on this one person.
So she got exactly what she deserved before she could force the student to write on her bare skin. So read the story for yourself by scrolling down.
Things were going well for this student at school but that was about to change.
In comes Ms Umbridge and everything is flipped on its head.
She apparently hated one particular individual and there wasn’t any reason for it.
This teacher did everything she could to fail this student.
Even when they tried their best, they couldn’t improve their grade.
The student asked many people for help, even the devilish teacher herself.
But none of that worked and Umbridge was hellbent on picking on this student.
As you can expect, the student was done with all of the drama and unfair treatment.
So the student decided to change classes because that was the only option left.
So they went to the principal and things seemed to be going well.
And so the meeting time was set and the day was fast approaching.
Umbridge thought she had this in the bag.
She was ready to lay into this student.
But she hadn’t expected all the evidence that had been mounted against her.
So the class was changed and the student seemed to be doing well.
By the end of the semester, the student was back in the honours class but Umbridge was nowhere in sight.
We have all had to deal with unfair treatment in life and the feeling of inferiority never gets better.
