What I Should Have Said (#1 of five million)

Something reminded me just now of the prof who marked down my paper with a comment like this:

“This is not accurate. I lived in Singapore for 8 years and their perspective is different from how you’ve explained it here.”

What I should have said:

“Thank you so much for your comments, Professor XXXX. I’m so embarrassed. I had no idea that living in Singapore for 8 years was a pre-requisite for your course. I thought that reading countless books and articles by respected experts would be enough to do well. Thank you for all you’ve done for the world. If I would have headed out into society with a good mark in your class based on all my hard work, while lacking your hard-won insights into the Singaporean psyche, who knows what could have happened?!?!?!”
