Short Man, Strict Parent
Remember that high school gym teacher that everyone feared due to their strict teaching style? Well, it turns out that some strict teachers also turn out to be strict parents. After all, there is no school system code of ethics stopping them from using whatever punishment they like at home.
The person in this story remembers their gym teacher having a bit of a short man’s complex. That complex made the man a perfect candidate for a show called World’s Strictest Parents. After the show aired, this storyteller could be happy that they did not have to dig holes as a punishment like the teacher’s children had to do at home.
