Responsibility: noun ( DUTY ) /rɪˌspɒnt .sɪˈbɪl.ɪ.ti//-ˌspɑːnt .səˈbɪl.ə.t ̬i
something that it is your job or duty to deal with
The word itself sends shivers down my spine. I remember when I was in Primary 4 and my teacher wrote in my report card that I was responsible. I thought she was quite mad. I am not, nor have I ever been, responsible.
A while later I realised I had misread 'responsible', she had actually written that I was 'responsive'. That made a lot more sense. I was relieved.
I've gotten a job offer and am going to hear their $ offer soon.
