Saudi man finds 20-year cheat sheet in ear
Ear, what’s this? Man uses piece of paper to teach his children moral of his story: ‘don’t cheat at school!’
A Saudi man has made an unusual discovery which has forced him to take a trip down memory lane, albeit an uncomfortable one.
Lodged in his ear for almost 20 years was a piece of paper that he used as a cheat sheet in school exams. According to a report in Saudi newspapers on Sunday, the man, who was not named, discovered the piece of paper after he began to feel “excruciating pains” this week.
He had felt the pain in his neck as well as his ear, but believed that there was merely dirt trapped inside.
“He graduated from the university then got married and had children, but he forgot all about that paper he had stuffed deep inside his ear,” Al Jazirah daily said.
“As he was getting old, he started to feel severe pain in his ear… at the clinic, he was told by the doctor a piece of paper is causing the pain.”
But the newspaper also reported that the man was not proud of his actions, calling on his own children and other young people to not cheat at school.
In keeping with the moral of his story, the man had the slip of paper extracted and kept it and show “to advise them [his children] not to commit the same mistake he had committed.”
The cheat sheet had helped the man pass an exam to graduate at a school exam before enrolling at university, the newspaper reported.
