One poignant example is today's class. The assignment in the Erettsegi (Hungarian maturity exam, much like the HSC in N.S.W., The Abitur in Germany or the Matura in Austria) book was to explain to the examiner why the student would be a good babysitter. They had to cover such points like:
- Do you have any younger brothers or sisters?
- What would you do to entertain the child?
- What would you give the child to eat/drink?
- What would you do in case of an emergency (ex. Crying)?
The boys, however gave a slightly different response. One of the boys kept repeating that he hated small children, and finally assisted his group (himself, one other official student, and one student who comes although he has already taken his language exam (he just sits in the back and listens to music)) with the following responses:
- We would feed the children fruit, vegetable and beer milkshakes
- We would take the kids to the pub and a metallica concert (lifted on shoulders so not to get squished)
- In case of emergency we would take them to the hospital (yes, even if the kid is just crying).
