Thi aad Whitley!!

One day,me and Alan Wilkinson,Ronnie Leyland,[football team members],and Norman Taylor,aal ran through thi corridor and oot by the main entrance,to the left of thi building,instead of the way we should have cum oot,and aad Nicky the Headmaster,[Mr Nicholson],saw us and called us back inti his office...

....caned three times on both hands...in a very slow,controlled,terrorising fashion,hummin ti hesel',searchin amang aal thi canes he kept hidden from school inspectors,among rolls of maps etc,swishing them in front of our faces,..."too thick....I want one that's really going to hurt,to teach you all a lesson...hmm...too thin.....!!",until we were shaking by then,but none of us wud admit we were scared stiff,even though we had this all before!

We never came oot that door ever again!

Eh whey,larn thi hard way,we knew it was against the rules!!

We were only aboot ten years old......
