Revenge of the Scary School Secretary

Sun, Nov 22, 2009


Go on, admit it. You’ve always suspected that the Scary School Secretary, who rules the head teacher, the pupils and the parents with a rod of iron, was about to snap.

      Definitely, we should make it a law ….should also have similar at Ikea, doctor’s surgery, dentist, mobile phone companies …

    Wow! I’m impressed you got this onto your blog!!! I wouldn’t have a clue.
