Prat of the Month

Oi, teacher, stop shouting!
Step forward Mrs Joyce Walters, aged 50.

Walters has won £150,000 damages from her local authority because, as a teacher, she developed nodules on her vocal chords. She claimed that her unruly pupils meant that she had to shout a lot, and has now had to give up the vocation she supposedly loved.

If she was so hot at the vocation she loved, why could she not control a classroom without bawling like a parade ground RSM from a Carry On film?

Prat she might be, but she's smart enough to con a local authority out of £150,000 that could have been spent on education.

Full Story

Perhaps the nodules also developed while she was shouting in the bars she frequents. I'll have to try that one for £150,000.

Sitting behind desks has made me overweight. I want compensation!!
