In the world of online tutoring, things can get a bit dicey. Our tale today revolves around a tutor, let's call him 'the Scholar', and his struggle with an 11-year-old student who was more interested in video games than in Latin, Greek, or Italian. The real drama, however, unfolds when the kid's mother enters the scene, sparking a fiery feud over a missed lesson and a refund. 😲 Let's dive into this intriguing saga of online lessons, forgotten appointments, and the battle for respect... 🎭

A Tutor's Stand Against Rudeness: Justified or Over the Top? 🎓🔥

In this digital drama, the Scholar, a dedicated online tutor, finds himself at odds with a rude 11-year-old student and his forgetful mother. After the student misses a lesson without notice, the mother demands a refund, ignoring the agency's policy. The Scholar, who had even delayed his dinner for the lesson, stands his ground. He refuses to refund, sparking a fiery feud that ends with him cancelling all future lessons with the boy. The mother retaliates with a scathing 1-star review, damaging the Scholar's reputation. But was the Scholar's stand justified or too harsh? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💭

NTA: You had an appointment & sat there waiting for an hour, they didn't follow the cancellation policy or offer a reasonable reason for missing. You're totally in the right. It sounds like you weren't a good fit together anyway, so you're better off spending that time with a student that wants to be there. 👍
