The little girl was one of the brightest kids around but had a learning disorder. So the principal summoned her parents to explain how things were in school. A discussion ensued on what could be done to help the case. After a good long 15 minutes, the principal turns to the mother and asks her whether she can quit her job. "You have an earning husband to take care of the expenses, don't you?" Of course, she doesn't retort the way she'd prefer to out of respect but every single voice in her head screams "Why me?" For some weird medieval reason, the principal assumed that it'd make sense to have the mother spend more time with the ward instead of the father. Not only that. The honourable principal even assumed that the husband was doing financially better than the wife. It didn't stop at that. The clincher being the principal was a woman too.
