When I was as student teacher on placement a little girl told me that I had the same name as their cleaner and that her daddy had said that she didn't have to do what the cleaner said and she didn't have to do what I said because I wasn't a proper teacher.
Yesterday's news that Pontins Holiday Camps had previously discriminated against people booking accommodation who had Irish sounding surnames really is dreadful. It brought back to my mind the coincidence of an office based environment I worked in during the 60's......my surname then was Blizard, but I worked alongside a colleague whose surname was Frost! Two other colleagues in the office had surnames of Sparkes and Cosier! Two cold and two hot! Any other GN with similar story?
