comming from a school who sent out a letter to parents politly reminding them that black/dark charcoal was not the norm and that dark blue/navy was the proper uniform,my beloved mummy only went and bought me a blue uniform.

 

lo and behold 'I WAS THE ONLY P.RAT DRESSED IN A BLUE UNIFORM' out of about 500 pupils,and could not get away with nuffing at all.

 

AND THAT INCLUDES FORGETTING THE FOOKING JUMPER. :( :( :( :censored: :censored: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Reminds me of my internship with work,
When i started they give me two pairs of ford blue coloured overalls,
But everyone else had baby blue overalls,
Meaning i couldn't take an extra 5 minutes tea break or anything because i stuck out a mile from the rest.
Thankfully they employed me afterwards and my overalls are now the same colour as the rest,

Crazy the things we remember from school aswell,
I had an ALF lunchbox,
Anyone remember ALF ?

And my ginger school mate named Garret but everyone called him carrot :lol:

My national school was called Stonetown school in co. Louth
Its still in operation today,
Was four in my class including myself all boys,
Was 50 pupils in the whole school :lol:

The desks had the ink pot holders from the days where the actually used quills,
And there was a stove at the top of the class where they lit a fire lol
I remember the first computer they had "windows 95" :lol:
Used to wheel it around on this custom built table with trolley wheels and an extension lead,

Nial Sloan was my teacher he even drove a Vauxhall and hit me a belt every now and then for getting me guides wrong lol

Our computer studies were on ZX Spectrums with thermal printers and BBC B computers that took forever to boot up.
My high school (Charles Dance went there :D) was replaced by a housing estate but my primary school is still in existence but is the most saught after placement in my city.

I got caned twice for bunking off and faking a sick note ;), (naughty me).

My bezzy oppo used to have a Spectrum.
3 hours trying to load up Manic Miner or Jet Pack Willy via tape and when we finally got it loaded we'd play it for 10 minutes, get bored & switch it off.
