Mean teacher

At work, we just hired a couple of summer interns from the local high school.  It is my job to be their mentor and project manager.

Today we held our first estimation session, and after it was over I was aware that I had come off rather brusquely.  This is a personality trait that I am well aware of in myself and am working on.  I asked my colleague if he noticed it and said he did, but he is used to it.

So, I decided to apologize to the interns for my manner.  Their response:
“That’s ok.  We’ve had mean teachers before.”
