You reap what you sow
But the thing that really got my attention was a side comment by Yvonne Chan, a member of the State Board of Education. The transmission went on her fancy car, and she was looking at $10,000.
Back in 1968, she taught Special Ed. She happened to run into one of her former students at the dealer. So instead of having to argue about who would spring for the transmission, she got out of there with a new car. I was moved to remark that it was a good thing she treated the kid right 35 years ago in class! It took a while, but Yvonne Chan reaped what she sowed, and it's a good thing for her that she sowed some good seed back in the day.
