A video emerged online showing a man crying while pacing around in a room, using his shirt to wipe away his tears as he sobs uncontrollably.
The man in Henan, China, was apparently crying because despite him giving his son tuition for a whole year, his son scored an unbelievable 6/100 on his maths exam.
The boy’s mother said that her son usually scores around 40 to 50 marks on his tests, and at times even scoring an 80 or 90 out of 100 marks.
So the latest 6/100 score was a devastating blow to the boy’s father who felt like he put in so much effort into his son for nothing.
A flurry of encouraging comments came in, with many netizens understanding how the man feels, while others deduced that the man probably taught his son the wrong things instead.
Another netizen asked whether it was possible that the son did it on purpose.
