My school was a real old fashioned school and very strict like something from the 40's or 50's. lf the kids didn't finish their homework or rule the straight lines on their pages they got belted by the teachers with a thick and hard strap. l recall one day half the class was brought up the front of the room, all lined up and waiting to be strapped for not completing difficult math homework. One of my ol' mates got so scared that he farted everytime he got hit, and the bloke also pulled his hand away once causing the teacher hit himself. The poor bloke was belted many times.
My old science teacher was one of the worst. He was a real nice bloke but he was an old fashioned disciplinarian. This bloke would jump up into the air and smash the living daylight out of you. l remember him saying once to a kid in a really funny tone "you have been a reak naughty boy, now depart and retrieve the strap out of the briefcase, you're going to get smacked". Remember, we were young blokes of 14 or 15.
Another teacher used to talk to us in a horrible manner. We were men of age at 17 or 18 and he'd say "now children, be silent and do as you're told".
But the worst of the worst was when l would play it up with my mother and she'd told me "just wait until your father gets home". When she told me that you knew you were gonna feel it real it good. You'd be scared until the old man came home. As soon as he puledl up the drive it was the end of that and you were going to experience pain in a short time. The old man would take the strap out from his pants and give it to me good. Everyone's old man used to take the strap out from their pants and belt the kids real good when they acted up in those days. It was not a big deal
Anyone else get the same at school?
Did your old man ever do the same?
