Has anything like this happened to you?

We love hearing anecdotes from our authors. Our author of the month, Meg Fabian, recently shared this memory with us…

Back in the early 70s I was teaching in an infant school in North London. The children in my class were quite young and the loos were outside across the playground. ‘Accidents’ were very common. We kept a supply of clean underwear and clothes for children to change into.

On one occasion there had been many accidents and I had run out of spare clothing. When I gave one little girl our last clean pair of pants, I asked her if she would pleeeease ask her parents to send them back to school as soon as possible.

The next morning, I was running late so I caught a bus instead of walking to school. The bus was crowded and sitting down the front was the little girl with her daddy. She was delighted to see me, as children often are to see their teachers out of school. She called out, at the top of her voice “Oh Miss, my daddy’s got your knickers in his pocket”! 😮😂
