I remember the brouchure they showed me when I was considering becoming a teacher: "Long holidays; knock off mid-afternoon; hot and cold running strikes; never put in a full day's work so long as you live!"
That's certainly what I had in mind this afternoon when I had last period off: Headed out the door at half past two, bus fare in hand.
An hour and a half later, I actually left school, sneaking out the back way to avoid the violence-prone parent camped out the front again whom I've managed to annoy, having to circle round to a nearby cashflow machine because I've given my bus fare to a student who had no way home.
I've watched Goodbye Mr Chips from start to finish, dammit, and all four seasons of Welcome Back Kotter - even after Gabe Kaplan left, and I don't remember this happening in any of it...
