Yes, I was disappointed (but not anymore)
June 16, 2017 7:16am CST
There was a task given to me and it took me days to finish it because of the difficulty of the task. A promise was given to me that my hard work will pay off. I thought that it would be recognized this afternoon on the Conference but the only people given recognition for the same task that I did were 2 higher authorities. I felt extremely disappointed and I felt insulted. It was like I was ignored. Is it because I am just an ordinary teacher that my hard work is not good to be recognized in that event. This is not the first time that I felt humiliated. I know I am not holding a high position in the school but I was the leader in our department. I represent the teachers in our school. Sad to say, when the school head were introducing the Head Teachers, he skipped me and he said "Sorry, I don't know you." He said it in front of the students with microphone on. I was deeply hurt because of those words. But I just want to forget those things. What I did when I arrived home this afternoon is I put all my disappointments in doing cardio exercises. I kicked hard, I bend my body as much as I could. I transfer all those disappointments in doing exercises. I am happy to be back here in Mylot. How have you been?

@annierose Oh puhleezz! You have the right to feel bad. First, they assured you of a reward if you able to accomplish the task. And secondly, the principal was rude by not knowing your name. (How could a principal not know your name??).
These happen in life. Some are adept at taking credit and staying in the limelight. I recall one incident when I submitted detailed costs of products for approval of prices and the official asked those who represented our company questions they could not answer; they had to admit the person who did the hard work was not among them.
