Whilst attempting to avoid returning to work after lunch I came across an article about a young woman and her mother who are suing her former school because she didn’t score well enough to get into law.
Rather than accept the blame for not pushing herself towards something about which she is obviously passionate or even showing up to all her classes, she has chosen to place the blame firmly on the school.
To my mind, I know exactly where she should place what she’s proposing, but then this wouldn’t be a very impartial post. They claim her behaviour is typical of a bored but gifted student and perhaps the huge promises made by the school (And wads of cash demanded) means they should be fielding at least some of the blame.
Just like former Labor MP Craig Thomson claiming his phone was hacked so people could smear him, at what point do we stop making excuses, stand up and take the blame? What does it take for someone to say “Ok I arsed up, so where do we go from here?”
For the record, if it turns out someone did actually hack his phone to smear him consider me pre-admonished.
