The first thing you learn at school

I was flipping through some pages in Pamuk’s book Istanbul and I got to read this worthwhile passage, and I am so glad someone said it so beautifully- 

“The first thing I learned at school was that some people are idiots; the second thing I learned was that some are even worse.”

Reminds me of the bitter memories that I have had from my early schooling, even now, it’s exhausting. Exhausting to even remember how exhausting it was to bear with some of those idiots. 

And now a curious question festers in my mind: what was the first thing you learned at school?
