Cue Card Answer:
This is an interesting topic indeed. Lots of memories are there in my store about the school days. But the most important of them was the fighting with a friend and getting punished severely for that. In fact, I do not know how I started the fight and later was punished. Even, the school authority asked my dad to come and mitigate the issue. So, it was a good trouble for me that day.
Actually, I started fighting with Joseph as he took my pen. I left the pen on the desk and he took that away though I forbade him to do that. When I went to get the pen back, he said he will return it once his writing is done. But I was impatient. I asked him several times to give that back. He denied and I slapped him. We got engaged in a scuffle and several other students tried to stop it. Later, the class teacher came and shouted to all of us.
However, I did not feel guilty for the fight. Actually, it was not my fault at all. He took away the pen that had lead to an untoward situation. But it was an undesirable event for me and for him too. The guardians arrived and settled the issue. But by this time, both of us were too tired and suffered some minor injuries in our bodies. Interestingly, I was skilled in such small fights and thus Joseph received more than he gave me.
I can remember this because we are not very good friends. We share a very good bondage and work in the same office here in Munich. So, whenever I remember the matter, I start laughing unconsciously. The later events were not that much beneficial for us. Our parents punished us in different ways. But those are memories now.
