Some email correspondance. Incidentally since they have lost my application and its a new one, they have no idea what my disabilty might be. Ironically if you didn’t know. Its dyslexia.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your swift response. I shall resend my paperwork presently.

Meanwhile, you and your colleagues might want to consider removing internal communication threads before replying to an email originator. Including discriminatory remarks is both insensitive and unprofessional.

application. My details are as follows:

Back to reality, oops here comes gravity.

  • I must write 8000 words in the next 4 weeks. Boo
  • My law exam is on May 7th
  • Today i must write a presentation on the magnitude and prevalence of discrimination.

This week’s lesson from social work is;

  • If your child says ‘oh i’ve seen this college course in *****, i think i’m going to apply.’ The correct response is ‘wow, thats great, i’m really proud of you and will support you as best I can’ and NOT ‘*sucks teeth* Ooooh, that will be very hard work you know, you HAVE to realise what hard work that will be’ and so on and so on. Please also be mindful of saying ‘what?? Beauty Therapy? You can do better than that!”. This may well be true but its about what THEY want out of life, not YOU.
