The rush for noo­dles

The Borneo Post - Good English - - News -

JEREMY rushed down the stairs two at a time. Five min­utes has passed since the bell rang and the can­teen would surely be very crowded.

The can­teen was packed with stu­dents by the time Jeremy ar­rived. He dashed straight to the noo­dles stall and joined the long queue there. He was al­most at the front of the stall when he no­ticed that there was only one plate of spaghetti left. Without an­other thought, Jeremy pushed his way for­ward and shouted out his or­der. Sev­eral boys in front of him pushed away and told him to stay in the queue. How­ever, Jeremy ig­nored them.

The stall­holder was clue­less about what was hap­pen­ing. She gave Jeremy the last plate of spaghetti, A boy in front of Ja­son was fu­ri­ous be­cause he wanted to or­der spaghetti too. He snatched the plate from Jeremy and told him that it was ac­tu­ally his. In the fight, the plate of spaghetti flew out of Jeremy’s hands and landed on the floor.

A teacher ap­peared at that mo­ment. When he found out what was caus­ing the com­mo­tion, he rep­ri­manded Jeremy harshly for what he had done. The other boy was also scolded for fight­ing.

Both boys were pun­ished and made to stand out­side the prin­ci­pal’s of­fice for the rest of the re­cess.
