Sample Answer:
Thank you for this nice cue card topic. Fe months ago my physics teacher refused me entering the class in college. Unluckily, I made late that day for some reason. Hence, the teacher, Victor Douglas, did not allow me entering the class. I was late for around 10 minutes owing to a serious traffic congestion on the streets of Manaus, located in the north region of Brazil. Therefore, I was extremely disappointed. The matter had a negative impression on my mind. The cue card questions appear delicate and I love answering such questions. Here go the remaining answers.

Usually, college classes begin by 8.00 am. The students and teachers are asked to be there by 7.30 am. I made a mistake on the day. I slept late night. Consequently, made a late wake up next morning. Started for the college hurriedly and got stuck in traffic jam. Being peak hour, everyone tried moving their respective destinations hurriedly. So, the street to my college was blocked. I had to walk all the way to reach college.

I became a victim of injustice by this particular teacher. He did not like me for some particular reasons and my outspoken nature helped him taking decisions against me. His enmity against me was natural. I was disappointed that he did not allow me attending the class after an explanation of everything. He just kept saying some usual words against making late in class, insincerity in studies, he could not prove anything against me though. Considering the situation, I became disappointed.  

My feelings were limitless then. I felt sad inside. My classmates and friends laughed at me. I turned their subject to mock. I urged the teacher several times to attend the class, but he did not permit me. I think he was laughing inside his mind. He enjoyed my situation. It was a terrible experience.
