The Walk Of Shame.

Another  picture prompt with the Friday Fictioneers over at Rochell’s place. Requirements… A hundred word flash, inspired by the picture on loan from Amy Reese. Go on over and join in or read the individual stories  by pressing her name                                     🔜  Rochell Wisoff-Fields.


He shouted, his face against mine, his breath steaming my glasses. Men shouldn’t need to shout, my Gran said a good man knows how to be respected. I can’t hear what he’s saying; it’s loud. Mr Waddington said, “be healthy, don’t eat sweets and such, or smoke. Eat fruit and vegetables they’re healthy”. I said, “How can you teach us that sir? I see you eating crisps, smoking, drinking from a flask like my dad keeps next to his bed… and you’re fat”. That was when he shouted and made me do the walk of shame to the headmaster’s room.



Have you ever walked that corridor, sent shamefully past a whole class lips twitching scared you might pee your pants? let me know in the comments I would love to hear.

    • I would have been too… *gulp* a corridor was somehow worse, not only one person would see you but teachers from other rooms tutted and shook their heads. Thank you for coming i will pop over to your place soon; *hoping* “maybe a cup of tea will be available”… *thinks* we wil see. *big smile*

  1. Dear Ellen,

    I still remember my fifth grade teacher yelling at me and shaming me in front of the class for a ketchup stain on my Scout uniform. To this day it hurts and that was a long time ago.

    Obviously that teacher’s actions are speaking louder than his shouted words. Well done and an A+ for reader participation. 😉

  2. Ah, yes! I have walked the hall of shame. My principal hauled me out of class and gave me shit – not over food. He overheard me telling a classmate during recess that I don’t study for exams. Gave me a lecture and yelled at me ‘Now get back in there!’ I’m an A student. Thanks for the memories! 🙂

  3. Do as I say, not as I do. Isn’t that what they teach. I’m amazed at how many people in the health profession do such a poor job taking care of their own health.

    The shame part was the biggest factor in the punishment and designed to serve as a major deterrent to future bad behavior. It was highly effective on most of us.

  4. Gran was so right – what a horrible man. I had a dentist when I was a kid – he had some of the worst teeth I’d ever seen and they were always coated with plaque when he leaned over to examine me! Nice tale and though your character was sent to the Head, she definitely retained the moral highground!
