OMG! So I was just reading this post on SDK's blog for people who graduated with 3rd Class from the University and their experiences so far. Not sure why but this particular comment cracked me up.
Funny as it may sound this comment raised a lot of questions in my head. Why did hubby feel the need to lie; was it out of the shame that's bound to come with graduating with a 3rd class, OR because wifey is really smart and he felt intimidated by her 1st class OR because he knew the kind of attitude wifey has; the 'cos I'm super intelligent and I don't want my kids getting your dull genes' attitude?
It makes me wonder if when people lie to us we're sometimes the reason they do so...
And lastly, you know I just have to ask; what would you do in the woman's shoes if you, with your 1st Class and super achievements, just found out that your spouse who you were led to believe was super smart and a high achiever isn't exactly all he/she makes out to be?
*this is not to say that I think making a 3rd class is sign of dull intellect, nor that it should be a limitation*.
