My former colleagues SC and LM sat with us at the dinner table.
SC mentioned an opportunity that I thought would interest direct entry students. When I contributed this idea to the discussion, SC gave me a dirty look and stormed out of the room.
‘What was that all about?’ asked my colleague AN. I replied that I didn’t know, but would find out. Then I left the table to chase SC.
I found SC half way up the stairs. The reason for her upset was that she felt that I should have shown her more respect in the discussion of direct entry students. After all, she had a long association with provision for them prior to her retirement.
