Not happy with my refusal, they decided to ask a colleague for permission when he came to assist me. Suddenly I heard my colleague scolding one of them and I asked him what the student did after she went back to her seat. He said can you imagine she just called you Madame Truc. Even if she doesn't know your name that doesn't give her the right to call you Madame Thing. The annoying thing is she is african. Doesn't she also have respect ni ?
On getting home, I decided to do some digging about the meaning of the word. I had fallen inlove with it. Truc. Madame Truc. Lol!!!
Here is what I found :
Truc has three meanings :
1. It can mean "tip"
2. It can mean "trick"
3. It can mean "thing"
Tip : A secret information or advice given to be helpful
