name on the paper
The bane of every teacher's life is the child who doesn't put their name on a worksheet. I don't care how competent or incompetent the teacher is, this is a problem in her class. For seven years of primary school and then up to six years at secondary school the teacher says,
" What is the first thing you do when you get a sheet of paper?"
And the children reply
" Put your name on it"
Today my partner got a phone call enquiring if someone at this address had applied for a job. A little confused David asked if it was a Primary School, to which the person on the other end of the phone replied, no its McDonald's. David immediately worked out that it was my sixth year at secondary school son who had applied and answered accordingly. McDonald's were not at all sure to whom to offer an interview to as Tony neglected to put his name on the application form.
Says a lot about the staff at McDonald's that he got an interview.
