Snot nosed kids with shit names.

Last week the wife dragged me around a few prospective primary schools for our offspring. Given the fact that our eldest has just turned one and the second is yet to hatch, I thought this was a little premature but she insisted. She likes to plan ahead.

Anyway after a day of driving around, it boiled down to two choices:

1. A nice little CofE village school, very well funded, 60 inch flat screens in all the classrooms, new fixtures and fittings etc. It's a mile away from our house and there is even a free minibus that will pick the sprogs up from the end of our drive, head teacher is an ex squaddie, seemed like a top bloke. Most of the kids in our village go there so our sprogs will have plenty of mates.

2. A posh private school on a converted farm, it's nice enough, has better sports facilities than the village school but isn't noticably better in any other way, it's half an hour drive away so an hour round trip twice a day and it costs 6 grand a year per sprog.

Obviously the missus wants to send the sprogs to the posh place, she thinks it will be good networking for her and the kids and all her mates send their kids there. She thinks the kids will get a better head start in life if they go there.

Now clearly I'm thinking the first place will be better, it's free for a start and I don't need the hassle of driving for 2 hours a day. The only thing I learnt at primary school was how to play football and how to make a rubber band gun, I'd rather save the cash for a decent secondary school or uni education.

The thing that really swung it for me though was the vast array of kids with utterly shit names at the posh school. What is it with middle class people these days? If there had been anyone at my school called Rufus they would have been bullied to suicide.

While looking at the kid's coat rack with their names on, I noticed the following:

Rufus
Lucas
Lawrence
Kai
Oscar
Hazen
Eden
Hermione
Lancelot
Hunter

Then as we were leaving I heard a mother in the carpark calling out to her son Mylo.

Any of these names would have at least warranted a daily beating were I schooled. Are parents these days exposing their kids to a life of bullying and torture?

Tell her to fuck off the kids woud be surrounded by little shits with names like tobias/sebastian and Jamie oliver freak names plus he'd just get tormented by the normal kids around the village for going to a posh school.

It helps them to man up. I am convinced Twinkle-Toes Pansy Derek Roger_The_Cat will thank me when he's older

On a serious note don't waste your money on the Private Primary School. Your brat might be thick as shit. See how they get on in Key Stage 2 first.

Basically, yes. It's creating the early case for bullying and persecution that hardens these kids into either drop outs, psychopaths or nasty little people in the city, and what ensures that the middle classes regulate themselves...

I've heard some stupid names in my time:

Paris
Troy
India
Archie (and I'm not old enough to remember when Archibald was an acceptable name)
Ezekial (nor am I aware of knowing any Amish types)

Wha's wrong with proper names?

Just my personal opinion but £6k a year at the primary level is a complete waste of money, if I was in a similar situation in terms of scooling my folks would have disowned my by the time I was 9!
Like you said, save for Uni, by the time your kids are old enough, you probably will have needed to save £6k a year for them anyway!
Or better still, get them in the Army at 16, thats what I'll probably do if I have any...

In terms of shit names, my ex used to want to call any potential offspring Bradley because she fancied the Gwar cunt that used to be in Eastenders!

No because these people will only associate with other people of the same type so the names are rendered normal, acceptable and even something to be aspired too.

Ravers,
Put the foot down remember that £6K a year at the current price what will it be when your rug rut starts. The money has got to come from somewhere so you'll need to give up the alfa and your toy's .....you going to stand for that?

What the fuck is wrong with Lawrence as a name? All the others yes, but Lawrence? There's been loads of them. I admit that they normally shorten them to Lawrie, Laurie, Larry, Loll or Lozza etc., but how many Michaels do you know that get called Mick/Mike?

...and your kid will get tormented by the posh Tobias and Sebastian etc for being poor and common - unless of course your families second and third cars are brand new Mercs and you routinely spend Christmas skiing in Chamonix. Lose-lose situation for the child.

Roger_The_Cat is spot on - stick with your village C of E primary school - you will be pleasantly surprised.

My wife has various friends who like to think they are middle class, and have named their kids, Noah, Lucas, and Barnaby.

I also, and this is a personal gripe of mine, dislike people who insist that their kids are called by their full name. i.e. Joseph not Joe, and Benjamin not Ben.
I like to think my kids have normal names, that were chosen as a, my wife & I liked them. And b, they can be shortened (because you know their mates will shorten them.

Ravers on the flip side, what are the names of the kids at the Council school?
I also have a, shall we say lower class friend who who called his tribe of kids, Leona, Tesni, and Cian.
One of the scrotes* here in work has kid's called Destiny & Tianna.



*He's not a nig..I mean black, either.

I'm glad most of you chaps agree. The money isn't really an issue, but I do think it's a bit of a waste. I reckon most of the stuff kids learn at that age is from their parents anyway.

The missus thinks the posh school will be great because she can go to all the socials and compare Range Rovers in the car park.

I just have visions of my kids being the odd ones in the village that all the other kids throw stones at.

Seemed to be fairly normal, nothing untoward that particularly stood out, James, David, Christopher, Jack etc.

No, your kids will be the ones throwing stones at the rich cunts.

Although if you send your kids to the posh school, they'll probably have better pickings from robbing dinner money off the toffs.
You could be like Fagan, and get the school fees back from sending your Artful Dodgers out to rob in school.
It's worth thinking about.

I went to a Private school from the age of 11.

The coat rack names at my school were:
Mohamed,
Abdul
Yu
Xing
Jocheim

and many other Muslim/Chinese/Jewish names!

As for the Primary bit...it will improve your childrens manners and politeness (although naturally parents can do this too, without spending £6k for someone else to do it) and perhaps give them the chance to learn a musical instrument. I am not so sure if, at such an early age, the Privaye education will have anything over the Village school.

My nephew and niece (pad brats) went to the local village school and got a superb grounding, for free. I went to pick them up one day and was stunned at the school. Far far better equipped and less children than my private school in London.

As for life in a Private school..I was bullied for having my education paid for. If ones father was not a Saudi/Iranian/African Prince, a CEO of a multi national, a Staff Officer or owned a bank, then you were treated as if you were something on the bottom of their shoes.

Did it do any harm? Yeah..I think it did. Would I send my kids to a Private school over a good "free" school...well, I didn't as the local school had a fantastic reputation and my kids grew up with friends in their street who went to the same school. I left school with no real friends as I never mixed with them outside school time as they all lived miles away.

Oh..and my Head Teacher was done for running a peado ring several years after I left. Private schools have very few checks on their staff and you tend to find plenty of suspect teachers in the Private system.

Ah fuck it..I am off to top myself after reading that!..Goodbye cruel world!!!

The Alfa is already gone. Couldn't get the baby seat in it. Now we've a got a big fuck off 4x4.

What has my life become? I feel empty inside.
