Mr. Griffiths... I am from the 67 era... That whole thing is so true.

Lawyers.



I recall getting several swats with huge paddles in my school days... and they hurt like hell!!! Plus the teachers seemed to enjoy giving them to troublemakers like myself.

Today they would get sued.

That's why all the kids are such little sh*ts today... They can't get disciplined!
It's stupid...
