Sorry for the random rant, but I really need to get this off my chest.
In my country we've always been old fashioned and not so long ago it was thought that actresses were sluts. Yes, I know that's ridiculously stupid but it's just the way it was.
As some of you may know, my mother is an actress. I've never had any problems so far until this year when this kid started spreading rumours about my mother being a prostitute (in the literal way, you know, charging for "services") and the worst part is some believed him. He never dared to say that to my face. At first I managed to tolerate it for a few days but then, he finally came to me and said my mother was a dishonorable person and that everything she ever achieved was a product of selling her body.
I broke his nose. I know it's terribly wrong but what would have you done in my position? Tell the teacher? I'm in highschool for god's sake. Luckily all I got was a sanction (basically a note in a piece of paper no one really cares about)
But what upsets me the most is that few years ago, when this kid entered my school he behaved normally, but one year later his lifestyle suddenly got better and automatically he started treating people badly, disrispecting teachers and adults and acting like everyone was his servant.
How does one manage to go from living in a small apartment and driving an old golf to living in a ph and driving an S class?
Turns out his father smuggles electronics and DRUGS into the country. (Illegally of course) and the worst part is he bragged about it in a PTA meeting. Yes, you read correctly, a freaking PTA meeting.
When I tried to "clear" the rumour and told everyone the truth about his mysterious lifestyle improvement I was told that at least it was more dignifying than being an actress.
Are you SERIOUS? Since when being a narc and a smuggler is more honourable than acting in the movies and earning your money and buying everything you have on a honest way.
I'm just so mad right now.
