Bad boys

It has been quite a long time since we've had a group of boys to stay and this time we were lucky enough to get the "bad boys" group.  The group has one boy who always has his trousers hanging down to show off his undies, one boy who only comes to school for the "fun" things, one boy who is craving a cigarette but can't have one as the teachers searched their bags before they came, and one boy who is great at judo and enjoys teaching everyone else how to kick each other very hard.  Two teachers stood beside them at the opening ceremony thingy and kept looking anxiously my way as they gave the four of them harsh warnings.  It made me happy to watch - as predicted this kind of group is a really good group to come to stay.  Away from the teachers they are polite, but still have a bit of personality to them.  They don't nod and bow continuously, but know how to have some fun.  They are only here for one night, but are saying they want to stay on a bit longer.  Sometimes the bad groups really are the best!


  1. I feel the same way about the bad boys in my English classes- at least your guaranteed an answer! :) One night is such a smidgen taste of country living, too. What a pity!

    they have charmed you into letting them use the axe then :) Laughed at the one craving a ciggie. Glad it was a good group. Loads better than quiet or bitchy girls.

  3. Don't underestimate how good you are at what you do!!

  4. I liked this story Jo! And I agree 100%. I think your last line said it the best...

    "Sometimes the bad groups really are the best!"

    So true! : )
