Today My Confucian Sensibilities

Today my Confucian sensibilities were once again offended when a student demanded that I relocate to another table so that he and his circle-group could sit;naturally I told him that, since I am Master and he Disciple/Pupil, he must defer / submit to my will;but he countered that Confucian principles have not guided human behavior in Japan since the mid-1880s, and that, as my client, he is entitled to the table;in the end, I had no choice but to yield the table and eat my lunch in the mud。
