#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 11th, 2018 – “Humiliate.”



The Reverend Mother looked at the boy before her and saw a crude, callous and deserving creature of all the punishment she could deliver.

It was her God-given obligation to teach boys humility even if she had to belt it into him.

He was at fault there was no doubt. She’d heard him exclaim, “bloody pen” as everyone settled down to their maths exercise. There was no way she was going to give up this opportunity to humiliate the boy in front of the class.

As it was she disliked boys. They were vile, smelly and uncouth and if she had her way she’d belt every one of them everyday.

The boy in question was stood in front of the class as she delivered her tirade on blasphemy, swearing and the disgusting practices of all boys. She knew she held the class in her hand as they were waiting for her to swing the cane.

She didn’t let them down; the boy received six of her best for being a repulsive guttersnipe. She watched him cringe as he made his way back to his seat, his humiliation complete as she felt the exhilaration of his tears.

    Oh! Boy I can empathise with that boy… I was taught by nuns and they were as vicious towards us girls too. Not only did we get the ruler but also I got regular tongue lashings, I am surprised I left school with any self-esteem. I left at 15yrs as soon as I could! I am sorry you had such a bad experience too. 💜

    Some of those nuns are going to have a lot to answer for. My Mum went to a boarding school where nuns were in charge. They (the girls) had to wear a smock while taking a bath so they wouldn’t have evil thoughts about their bodies, and sleep with their arms outside the blankets. My Mum was also given the cane on her first day at school simply because she was sitting with her behind hanging over the bench seat. She had a boil on her bottom. She copped a whack with the cane you know where. Ouch!

    I didn’t attend private schools but I’ve heard many stories about the ruthlessness of the nuns!

    Their idea of maintaining classroom discipline was intimidation and humiliation. Many of them were placed in classrooms with no idea what they were doing. I spent eight years at their hands…

  5. Not nice Michael. Not nice. Hope the witch gets her comeuppance in the afterlife.
