I was seated in a hard and cold chair. And over piles of books I finally saw my student? a big boy who seemed very unhappy with my visit. Giving me an indifferent look as a response to my "hello," he sat down impolitely with his Walkman on.
The father ordered me to take out my certificates. Having examined every line, he insisted that I take a test so that he could judge by himself.

"OK." He finally raised his eagle eyes. "Your accuracy is 90 per cent." "Is that enough？" I asked.
"It's enough. But don't you think your reading speed is low and ……"
"And Sir," I couldn't help interrupting him. "It's also enough for me to not have to bear this here."
I stood up and went away, leaving him astonished.
