Recently there has been a crisis involving the relationship between a teacher and a student. As a
keen follower of the issue, I have decided to write an essay stating a couple of arguments
explaining why the student's apology should be accepted.
I would like to, first, draw your attention to a brief introduction to the issue. At around 20:30, the
teacher raised a question regarding a sensitive topic. The student, let us call him Nob, agreed to
explain his view, but with a condition of exchanging answers with the teacher. She accepted the
proposal. Then the two parties traded their answers. While Nob could see the teacher's answer,
what the teacher received was a piece of paper containing some meaningless economics recipes
and a big "LOL" word. Having seen this, she went completely mad and hence the crisis broke out.
In this situation, it is well understood that the student was wrong. He did express his interest in
the question, even proposed to answer but eventually utilised a cheap trick to get away. The trick
did not only cause a betrayal feeling in the short-term moment but might also negatively affect
the teacher in the long-term. As a student, I wholeheartedly disagree with what the student did
but there are a few reasons that could explain his action.
Firstly, it is argued that the assumption might not be feasible. The question stated the situation is
over and it could caused no harm answering, hence the response should be revealed. However,
the student believed that by disclosing the answer, it could revive that matter, or even worse,
complicate the already-complicated issue. It is well-known that all men should abide the bro-
code; and thus any actions that could potentially damage the relationship between two men
should be avoided. In this case, the student considered the situation as one of the "potentially
damage" action had the assumption left out, thus resulting in the collapse of the deal.
Secondly, the student expected the teacher to remember an experience undergone by him. It is
told that during Nob's elementary years, he had suffered from a similar betrayal by his formal
classmate. He believed that the teacher knew this incident; and hence by raising the proposal,
Nob actually expected the teacher to know the trick before hand. Unfortunately, the teacher did
not recall the history and fell for the trick. Although this reason could not fully explain the
student's behavior, it indicated that he did think of the possible harm and were fully aware of its
Last but not least, having expressed a regretful manner demonstrated by this essay, Nob clearly
wants to give a sincere apology to his lovely teacher. It is not important how the actual answer
should be, the crucial thing for Nob is to maintain a close relationship toward his teacher, given
that the bro-code is not violated. His wish is simply to have the teacher supervised his Dota
assignments (thus he really wants the teacher to visit the library - proved in the previous essay).
Furthermore, his motivation of staying at home is laid behind the desire to socialise with the
teacher. It could be said that the teacher really plays an important role in Nob's life. Nonetheless,
he values his brothers and social ethics much more than his own self. For this reason, every of his
action should not violate a certain limit.
I hope this essay has made Nob's apology fully explained. Additionally, I anticipate his point on
the relationship including any potential interests and social constraints is clarified. He wishes the
relation could be normalised in the near future and promises such mistake will not be commited
again. If his apology is accepted, Nob expected a pleased smile from his adorable teacher.
Otherwise, he understands that the teacher might have a skeptical approach to him although that
is not at all his desire.
