    God I hate smug mums. The ones whobrag about how gifted their little darlings (LDs?) are. I secretly ( no openly) hope their kids grow up to be drop outs with tattoos and piercings and a thirst for strongbow.
  2. Lily, you should read the "Wot no text books?" thread on there (Secondary Education).
    It is quite jolly. I stopped when I spluttered coffee over my keyboard on reading the comment (from a teacher) that it is more difficult to graffiti penises on a IWB than a text book.

    Yes, but it was our lamented, lost troll QT who said that.
  7. Good gracious, quite safe, seren! I shan't be going to the trouble of registering with the online equivalent of the Daily Mail "Femail" section!
    I'd like those posters who hide behind an alternative username to be a bit less chicken though.

    ...which you pointed out if only I'd read it properly. [​IMG]
  9. ewwww, yuck! Did you read today's startling headline?
    "Clever girl! A new look without breaking the bank for the new First Lady of Labour".
    Can it get any more patronising?
  10. someone on here has apparantly been bragging about how when she goes out with her daughter, they're mistaken for sisters - according to page 6 - come on - 'fess up - who was it?

  11. LOL, is QT having a rampage?

    Oh, I think he's been gracing Mumsnet with his presence for some time. [​IMG]
  13. This thread has made me laugh today. I just found the 'shocked by the hatred of kids and parents on TES' thread on Mumsnet and and having so much fun reading it!

    What's not to like about kids, parents and teachers?
    They are particularly endearing when you mix them together.

    I wouldn't say I hate them per se ( being a parent myself) I just dislike the smug yummy mummies who think they know how to do my job when I know that they can't control their only brat so would last 5 minutes in the classroom. And I dislike spoiled children, although I realise it isn't the child's fault.
  16. I know we are not really supposed to do all that again about names and implications (and hey, my son has a "naughty boy name")...
    but when I was teaching in my last IS school, I had a pupil called Jasper.
    I don't think I need to say more. His sister, btw, was called Persephone.
    They were horrors.
  17. Lily you are famous now. How funny that they are talking about you there! Curlygirly - I agree.

    give me Britney, Kylie, Teejay, Beejay, Deejay and Saracen ( I kid you not) anyday over Ptolemy and Rupert!
  19. Oh, yes, I have tought two Ruperts. Floppy hair and big mouths. Both of them.
    I know, one should not generalise *slaps wrists*.
