KISS ME SAYONARA

Before going off to Beppu last week, had quite a shock upon hearing the resignation of my boss as the University Vice President...

What a waste, as he is such a nice guy... friendly, approachable, jovial, and most of all, humorous...

I was actually looking forward to working with him for a prolonged period of time...

Reason for the hara-kiri?

He took responsibility for the academic harassment case that happened while he was the Dean of the Education Faculty some time ago...

Apparently, professors attached to the arts and ceramics department at the Education Faculty refused to admit a couple of foreign students into their classes...

The case had been brewing for about a year and a half as the Education Faculty unsuccessfully tried to cover up the case...

The group of errant professors received various punishments ranging from severe warnings to salary cuts.

Some were told not to report for work for several months.

After coming back from Beppu, had another shock...

This time, a professor from the Medical Faculty was axed for sexual harassment... (again?)

He purportedly asked a female student to come to his office...

Once inside his office, he forced himself onto her, demanding for a kiss...

He is 52, and she is like, perhaps 21...

This case too, was brewing for more than a year...

As in the academic harassment case, the Medical Faculty tried in vain to conceal the case...

Hmm... after such an incident, I wonder what remains in life for the perpetrator...

Assuming he succeeded, that's just a few seconds of bliss, licking a young lady's mouth...

This, followed by a lifetime of...

Shame? Joblessness? Guilt?

Oooh, what a waste, don't you think?
