From Probyn Steer
Somebody (male) suggested loudly that we should challenge school authority’s rules about dress code by wearing “Walk Shorts” the next day. I volunteered immediately.
Walk Shorts and short sleeve shirt and Tie and long socks were the components of the Walk Shorts” fashion.
The next day, I turned up in said dress. Unfortunately, no one else did.
Not having a spare set of “correct” uniform, I just had to carry on.
No real results happened until we went to Maths period.
We had a new, young male teacher (Mr Edwards I think) who told me to leave his classroom because he didn’t like my dress.
I replied, “Well, I don’t like your suit, but I don’t attempt to eject you from the class.”
He said no more, and we carried on the lesson.
It wasn’t until a year or so later that I realised I had been “set up” and the idea was to embarrass me.
I’m still as gullible as I was then. Now, I would probably fall for it again. I’m not real smart, but I can lift heavy things.
I want to know if anybody else remembers any part/parts of this.
