M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //I know.// //[laugh] I know! [laugh]//

F814 //No, I had that as well.//
F812 //[laugh]// //[laugh]//
M811 //I think most people have feet that are slightly bigger than//
F813 They kept telling me so I think I was really abnormal.
F814 But then you must have, has anyone ever heard, and it is actually true, your foot's that distance from there to there?
F812 Yeah.
F814 And it oh it's the exact distance. But then you must have one arm that's slightly bigger than the other as well if your feet totally fit it. //Does that make [laugh] sense?//
F812 //But I've not put, like, that// foot in, do you know what I mean, each foot //in an arm//
F814 //I haven't tried.//
M811 [laugh] each foot in each arm, every combination //possible//
F814 //You can't,// //you can't really do that with that foot, but//

F813 //Aw//
M811 //Mm//
F812 //No but// seriously, like, things that you don't remember and when you, obviously you start thinking about it and you talk about it and you think //it's, it feels like//
F813 //That's dead funny [inaudible]//
F812 forever a wee bit and then you think, "I'm only twenty-one!" do you know what I mean //[inaudible]//
M811 //Yeah.//
F813 //I know.// I think I'm dead old at being //twenty-one.//
F812 //Uh-huh?// No, I don't feel it's that, I mean the girls at dancin as well, they're, I mean, some of them come in with things and you think, "Why?" and "What, what is that!" [laugh] but these, all the dolls that are out just now, there's one, eh, oh God, I can't even remember the name of it now but it does everythin, It, it's like a living thing, you know, like, you get these sort of simulated babies, //that's probably what it's like.//
F814 //Yeah.//
M811 //Yeah.//
F813 //See when they got like, Caprice and all that,// //programme when Caprice and all that had them.//
F812 //Uh-huh, and// you think, "But why, why?" //I mean I know you had dolls and it was like,//
F814 //[inaudible]//
F812 and you chucked it away after a couple of minutes, //you weren't really interested!//

F814 //No, I never had one.//
F812 //I did have one.// //I will admit I did, but it k-, it died, like, every day.//
F814 //[laugh]// //You obviously were not a very good mother [inaudible]//
F812 //No!// //You had to feed it and,//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //like, put it to sleep.//
F813 //But even now, like,// do you remember you used to get Frosty? Do you remember Mister Frosty? //Nowadays you get, like, Mis-, like, McFlurry//
M811 //Yeah. For drinks?//
F812 //I never ever had one and I always wanted one.//

F813 //With some lots, with some nice E numbers in it, get you hi-//

F812 //Sodastream.//
F813 //Sodastream, I had one of them// //in my house. I loved it!//
F814 //They were revolting!//
M811 //It's just like, who came up with// that idea, "Right, we're gonna do this thing, we'll make water fizzy, then you'll get a re- //revolting flavour and then//
F814 //So you put syrup in//
F812 //[laugh]//
M811 //mix it," it's like, "go and buy a can of coke!"//
F813 //But then, why don't you just buy the bottle, I suppose.// //Yeah.//
F812 //mm// I know there was a //kinda, a hype//
F813 //But it was cheaper, it was cheaper,// //apparently.//
M811 //[inaudible]//
F812 //You can get// //ones now, it's, like, McDonald's makers//
M811 //you know why it was cheaper, it was crap.//
F814 //Yeah, cause that's what she was saying, McFlurry makers and stuff.//

F814 //Yeah.//
F812 //It was just like// a head an //shoulders?//
F813 //I never had// //[inaudible]//

F812 //So was your mum//
F813 //No.//

M811 //[cough] [laugh]//
F812 Was your mum quite conscious of, like, what she bought you in case it //was kinda//
F814 //Yeah, my mum// and dad are both dead kinda political and everythin has to be politically correct so I was never allowed, like, Barbies or, I was never allowed golliwogs, other people had //golliwogs but//
F813 //I had a golliwog!//
F814 they were, they were //based on, like, black slaves or something and that was totally [inaudible]//
F812 //I never had a golliwog. I never knew [inaudible] but//

F812 //If you went, if you go down now//
F813 //[laugh]// //[laugh]//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]// if you think about it, like, kids just go, "I want that, I want that, I want that, I want that", and that, a lot of parents probably don't go, "Oh, you're not having this //because of this" and,//
F814 //because of, uh-huh//

F814 //of them would actually// work. It's just //herbal mixes, it's like cat nip and stuff.//
F813 //No, that's what I thought but I thought even, but I thought// //there's, there's loads of police about, why aren't they, why aren't//

F812 but then you're saying, like, you've got your neds in the dance //tent and then you've got//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 your moshers in //[inaudible]//
M811 //[?]Well, same as[/?] Leeds.//

F814 //Oh my God!//
F813 //I know,// //I, that scares me, I just get pure terrified.//
M811 //it's really bad though, cause you're like, "Right", the crowds, like push// up, so I'm just, like, "Right", //[inaudible]//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 not witnessing //anything [inaudible] [laugh]//

F812 //[laugh]//
F814 //[inaudible]//
M811 //I'm not seeing// //anything.//
F812 //And there's not an age// limit to be a ned //obviously!//
M811 //Yeah.//
F814 I went on the ferris, oh, actually there were some neds there, cause I went on the ferris wheel, I totally, I had to persuade my friend to go on the ferris wheel with me cause she hates it //and I//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 was like, "It'll be great, it'll be great", and we paid four pounds; it went round once. //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 But they, like, cause they want as much money as possible, they //totally fill up the//
F813 //I suppose it's quite good to// //see right down.//
F814 //carriages,//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 and we were here with these two neds and my friend Laura hates heights //and they kept doing that thing//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 where you, like, spin it and //everything like that, and Laura was sitting here, pure//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //Oh no!// //And you don't wanna say anything, you don't wanna//
F814 //"Oh my God!"//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
M811 //[laugh]//
F813 //even say,// //"Look"//
F814 //I, I was// eventually, like, "Look guys, can we maybe?", and they were pure, "Na!", [laugh], I was like, "No, my God, I just want off //this thing."//
F812 //How to negotiate// with a ned. //"Look guys, right, come on", [laugh]//
F814 //Please.//
M811 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]// //[laugh]//
M811 //No, there's usually like, the Leeds ones though, like, I've only//
F812 //[laugh]//
M811 ever been twice and only for the day just because there's only really been one day, //well my brother lives in//
F813 //Yeah.//
M811 Leeds so we just sort of go
F814 Uh-huh
M811 occasionally but it's usually quite a mix, there's usually one day that's more like, sort of rock and metal stuff //and me and my brother go to the one that's//
F813 //And then they have a t-, yeah.//
M811 a bit more indie, one that's a bit more //somethin else, but//
F812 //I've honestly can// never say I've ever kinda got into the whole //proper concert.//
F813 //Yeah.//
F814 But I didn't think I would be like that at all until I went last year, and last year I was looking forward to the bands and dreading the camping and I ended u-, I can't, some of the bands were good but I can't even remember the bands //that clearly, it was the camping//
M811 //Yeah.//
F814 that was amazin, it was so good, //except, like, when I got home on the Monday//
F812 //[inaudible]//
F814 total wreck, hardly //any sleep.//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 Right, cause we'd woken up later than everyone else so when I eventually opened the doors to our tent there was, like, pure //tumbleweeds floatin about all these//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 discarded tents, no-one there! //So we got up and we drove//
F812 //Oh my God!//
F814 home cause my boyfriend was driving but I got home and I was just shattered and I was sittin on the couch and mum was, like, "Are you gonna go and have a bath then?" and I was like, "Oh, I can't be bothered, I'll go in a minute," and she was like, "Kerry, you really smell". //[laugh] Aw!//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 There's nowhere to have a shower or anythin //so//
F813 //I love// Maroon 5, I got their album, like, //last week, and I//
F814 //Yeah.//
F813 I lo-, I love it. //Have you heard it?//
F812 //Well,// I've got the album but I don't know //[inaudible]//
F814 //I quite like a lot// //of them.//
F813 //I love it.// I love it, I've listened to it, oh, mind you I'm gettin a bit sick of it, I've listened to it about //like, five hundred times in the car,//
F812 //I do that with music though.//
F813 the same song over and over //again [inaudible].//
M811 //It's one of those things, like, I// quite liked the first song when I heard it and then I heard it a million more //times and then you're just sort of sick of the whole thing.//
F814 //And you just get sick of it.//
F812 //Yeah. But do you not think the radio, the radio// totally, like, I always listen to Clyde One, and I don't, I've never ever got into, like, Radio One and all the kinda, //you know,//
F814 //mmhm//
F812 and I always listen to Clyde One, and it's, they just kill songs, as soon as they come out they just play //them, solid,//
F814 //Again and again and again.// //Yeah.//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 //and by the time// it's even come out when they start playing it, like, two weeks before a song comes out //by the time//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 it comes out, you're like, //"I am fed up with this already".//
F814 //You just hate it, I know.//
F813 Totally.
F812 And you buy an album and you, I mean I really only buy an album for the one song that I like and then I get to like //the rest of the album.//
F814 //Yeah.//
F813 //Actually, you end up// preferring the other ones better and //you get fed up with the one//
F812 //uh-huh//
F813 that you //know.//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 //Cause it's that way when//
F813 //That's like//
F812 you were younger you always bought CD singles? //Now I've got hundreds//
F814 //I never buy them.//
F813 //I did as well.//
M811 //[inaudible]//
F812 //of CD singles// and, but see it was that way, you would get your pocket money and we used to go into Clydebank //on a Saturday,//
F813 //HMV, like three// //pound [inaudible]//
F812 //uh-huh//
F813 go in to, like, //W-, Woolworth's [inaudible]//
F812 //But see if you went out, if you went out// on a Saturday with like a fiver, that was your bus fare to get wherever you were going, your lunch and s- you could buy something and normally it would be, like, a CD //single, so you would come home,//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //Yeah.//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //like, "Ha, yes! I've bought a single!"//
M811 Cause I used to love goin up to Edinburgh on the Friday afternoon cause we had a half-day at school //so a Friday afternoon, you're like, "Ho-ho!"//
F812 //You'd a half-day//
F813 //[inaudible]// //They get, they get//

M811 each period was, like, ehm,
F812 Forty-five minutes //or something?//
M811 //Thirty-five// //minutes.//
F814 //That's//
F812 //Thir-//
F814 way too short //to do anything!//
M811 //Most of them were//
F812 //But did you have double//
F813 //Whit? [inaudible]//
M811 //most of them were all//

M811 //Ours were pretty much always doubles so// //that's an hour and ten.//
F814 //Right.//
F813 //That's like an hour and ten.//
F812 when I went to school at first, high school at first it was like that and you had doubles and then there was like, a, a double lunch so you could have either an early lunch or a late lunch and dependin //what day your//
F814 //Oh right!//
F812 period fell you were, you know, early lunch or late lunch but it got changed to fifty-five minute periods and you ended up having six a day but we were kicking up a fuss cause originally we finished at quarter past three and then they extended us to twenty-five to four.
F814 You finished at quarter past three? We used to finish at twenty past four!
M811 //We,//
F812 //Did you?//

F814 //It was horrible.//
F813 //[inaudible]//

F812 //Oh, I// //would be gutted! [laugh]//
F814 //The thought of going through//
M811 //I know.//

F813 //Aw!// //I was like,//
F812 //at school! [laugh]//
F813 I think I was, I was bad, I think I started hangin out with the wrong kinda people, //you know, at the beginning of secondary, like, when I'd just started//
F812 //That's totally got a big influence [inaudible] [sniff]//
F813 secondary, like, I was a wee bit neddy, like, you know, like, I was into all my sovereigns and my Berghaus jacket and all //that and wearin my//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //hexagon [?]rings[/?] or hexagon bangles, did you have them?//
F813 //tight lemon jeans with uh-huh, all [inaudible] the gold bangles,// //I had, I had a//

F812 //[laugh]// That was so //funny!//
F813 //No, I was a bit// //neddy, I think I hung out with the wrong kinda people//
F812 //Oh no, I did have all that kinda stuff as well.//
F813 and so I got suspended in second year for, I was getting bullied and, and ehm, I basically told the French teacher to F-off //and ran away from//
M811 //[laugh]//
F813 school and my mum was gutted cause she worked at the school and she was really disappointed in me
F814 What was she at the school?
F813 An art teacher. //She's still working//
F814 //Right.//
F813 she's still there but, ehm, and so they never really liked me //after that.//
F812 //Oh right.//
F813 Even though I was good //I mean I c-, I had settled down and//
F812 //But then I think havin your mum in// //the school, would that not have been a problem?//
M811 //I was never that bad, like, I never// really gave, there's only one time I can actually remember givin, like, really bad cheek to a teacher but that's cause, like //there was//
F812 //You get frustrated I think// //at school, that's a big thing.//
M811 //there was, like, there was one, there was one//
F813 //You do get frustrated.//
M811 teacher, I remember when I came to the school he was just like, looked at me, looked at my name on the register and was like, "Oh, are you Neil's little brother?", I was, like, "Yeah", and he just sort of went
F812 //See that//
F813 //Didn't like [?]even[/?]// //[inaudible]//

F814 me and then Maths and that were totally, "Oh //no".//
F812 //mmhm//
M811 //Yeah.//

F814 //Yeah.//
F813 //Yeah.//
F812 not even a hundred yards, it's, so you could fall out of bed if you stayed over and into school
F814 mmhm
F812 and, ehm, altogether there was about sixteen cousins at the time when I was in primary school, //so when I was, f- say//
M811 //[laugh] [throat]//
F812 for instance primary four, there was maybe, pretty much nea-, near enough all of us were there in some stage or had just //left or were//
M811 //[cracks knuckles]//
F812 just comin in, //and the//
M811 //[cracks knuckles]//
F812 teachers were //really really//
F814 //Ah!// //Stop doing that//
F812 //aware// //in a, is he clickin his, oh I hate that.//
F814 //[inaudible] [laugh]//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 Ehm, I think because, ehm, my mum, well there was a couple of the, the, the sort of, sets of cousins that weren't, weren't that bad boy, you know, and it was my, one of my aunts has got four boys who were just, they could sta-, start a fight in an empty house, do you know that way, there were just //awful,//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 mmhm
F812 and, ehm, I was alright in primary school, I was more kinda interested in sport and stuff, I wisnae really kinda academic and, but because we all had different surnames, cause it was obviously all sisters that the, they didn't know who was who, but when they worked it out //and they were, like,//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 "and to look at you, you would think butter wouldn't melt and you're related to //them and," you thought, they grouped us all together though,//
F814 //That's rubbish though.//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 //Yeah, that's crap if you're//
F812 //they thought because we were// //from the same//
F814 //not saying//
M811 //Yeah.//
F814 //anything.//
F812 //family, ehm//
F813 //mmhm//
F812 but I cannot, I can actually remember o- one day in primary school that t- two of my cousins started fighting each other, like normally //they would all start//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 fights with just random people, you know that way, //"I don't like//
F814 //[laugh]// //But then they ran out//
F812 //you, so"//
F814 of random //people. [laugh]//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //They ran out of folk to fight, so they were, like, "Right, me and you then, that's it".//
F813 //[laugh]//
F812 So, they started just having a fight and the teacher actually came and got me out my class and told me to go and separate my //cousins!//
M811 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 Oh my God, that //sucks!//
F812 //Uh-huh.// Ehm, but see what you're sayin just, like, havin siblings in the school or havin family, they totally brand you //because they think,//
F814 //uh-huh//
F812 "Oh, you must be"
F813 But it's quite good, see when you see teachers now, like, I was at the airport the other day and there was a teacher, one of my old teachers, and I remember speaking to her and you know that way you just think, "Oh my goodness, like, like, next year I could be, like, in your job". //Do you know what I mean, do you know that way?//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //I know.// //That's what scares me.//
F814 //It is that, it is that good, the sort of realizing that "You weren't that [inaudible] and you didn't know everything.//
F813 //It's weird. It's like, and do you know//
F814 //You didn't really have a right//
F812 //mmhm//
F814 //to treat me like that".//
F813 //My dad was// //sayin to me, my dad was sayin//
M811 //Yeah, I know.//
F813 to me, "You know Kirsten, you know, quite, quite honestly you could actually be more qualified than them by the time you leave," and y-, it puts it into perspective and you think
F812 Yeah, a lot of //teachers didn't go to//
F813 //It's weird.//
F812 uni, they just went to, like, teacher training //college, didn't they?//
M811 //What I found//
F813 //Yeah.//
M811 was by the time you were doing, like, sixth year or Sixth Year Studies or, like, Advanced Highers and stuff you o-, like, quite a lot of the time teachers didn't know stuff. //They actually, like,//
F814 //Yeah, that's// weird when //I realized that.//
M811 //genuinely didn't know.//
F812 //But then you don't acknowledge it// because you think, "Oh," you know, if you were //were to//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 I, well I definitely would never have said
F813 Oh no, you wouldn't //challenge them.//
F812 //Oh, you wouldn't have,// no way, cause //they're//
M811 //Like, I// I remember too, this was actually in the Higher, or maybe it was Standard Grade, I can't even remember, no it was Higher, yeah, and one of my, it was like Physics and I was, I was crap at Physics but, //like, one of my friends//
F812 //[laugh]//
M811 was really good at it and this teacher was just setting her some circuiting for her, like, "Oh, it's the bulb's not coming on," he was, like, "Oh," he was really stressed out, //my friend was, like, "Just leave it me," and, like, changed all these wires about and just//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //like, it was so embarrassing for him but it was just// //like//
F812 //Do you think teachers// do get embarrassed though cause //I know, but see when//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //[laugh] They're robots. They're human!//
F812 if I'm at, when I'm at dancin and I'm teachin the kids they'll, some of them will have ideas and they'll come up, "Why don't we do this?" and I'll be like, "Yeah, why don't we?" and things that, you know, I wouldn't go, "No", whereas I think sometimes in, in schools if a pupil or whatever was to have quite a good idea the teacher would be like, "No" because they hadn't thought of it so it would make //them,//
F814 //Yeah.// //But I think, the thing//
M811 //mm//
F812 //do you know what I mean?//
F813 //mmhm// Totally.
F814 about schools, aye, but the thing is at school though as well, you're not taught to question what they say //so it's not like, you're not, you're not, you're not going to start arguing//
F812 //That's why you come to uni! [laugh]//
F814 with them about their //point of view,//
M811 //Yeah.//
F814 //so I think//
F812 //uh-huh//
F814 they've got the right just to say, "Listen, I'm right, you're wrong //shut up with this."//
F812 //mmhm, mm// Yeah.
M811 //School is actually really//
F813 //My dad//
M811 bad for you, like, a lot of the things that //they teach you and, like,//
F814 //uh-huh//
M811 they really put you down a lot of the time //as well I think.//
F814 //They, yeah.// //And there's always only one way of doing things,//
F812 //I can remember a teacher//
F814 sorry, I was [inaudible] //[inaudible] when I did,//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 //uh-huh//
F814 we did Hamlet in English Lit in first year and I was just like, "No, what, what these peop-, lecturers are saying is just wrong," cause the teacher that I had in fifth year was just like, "This is how you interpret //Hamlet.//
M811 //Yeah.//
F814 This is what happens, go and learn it //and write it in your exam".//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 //And that's the way I//
F812 //mm//
F814 //remember it.//
F813 //My dad was sayin// that, "Isn't it funny how, like, eh, policeman just seem to get younger and younger and younger?" //and it's like,//
M811 //[laugh]//
F813 as you're g-, like, you can imagine, like, my dad's, what, like, fifty now, and like, when //he was wee//
F812 //Uh-huh//
F813 policemen were, like, these people to look up to, now my dad's, like, "Oh, that nice young policeman", //who's, like, about twenty-one, do you know what I mean?//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 It's like, "How dare you stop me for speeding!" //[laugh]//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]// That is quite strange, you don't think of that at all.
F813 And teachers but I mean, like, one day we're going, teachers are, that are teaching our kids will probably be younger than us. Do you know what, you know what I //mean, like?//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 Well, if I think about it, the thing that's frightening me, I'll be at teacher training next year and I'll be going into a class at the age of //twenty-one//
M811 //[sniff]//
F812 where there'll be kids at seventeen. //Now that//
F814 //Yeah.//
F812 kinda //freaks me out a wee bit.//
F814 //Because you're going to be so close// //to their age, are you gonna//
F812 //Uh-huh//
F814 have the whole respect //thing there?//
F812 //And are they gonna be, like,// "Well, who are you?" do you know what I mean, "You're not //that much older than us."//
F813 //And also if they're young// //[inaudible]//
F814 //But the thing is though, you, you,// you c-, you can do that with any teachers, I don't think age //matters that much a lot of the time.//
F813 //You might get some boys// tryin to slip you //their phone number.//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //No, I a- [laugh]// See
F813 See, we had loads of teachers like that, like y-, all the young teachers that came in, they were //always getting totally hounded.//
F814 //All//
F812 //I think that's shocking, that's shocking.//
F814 all the teacher trainers, training teachers that came into our place ended up going out with, like, the fifth and sixth year //girls and stuff//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 like that!
F812 Bit risky //really.//
F814 //I know.//
M811 Mm, that's really quite [inaudible], we had some //weird [inaudible]//
F812 //You're totally compromising your// whole career if you do that //do you know what I mean? That's//
F814 //Mm//
F812 //not even,//
F813 //Yeah.// //Did you see that thing in the paper//
M811 //Yeah.//
F812 //it's//
F813 about a guy who ran away with a y-, a girl of, like, sixteen, one of the //teachers, did you//
F814 //Yeah,// //he was, he//
F812 //Let's face it,//
F813 //see that?//
F814 //was forty or something.//
F812 //Busted are singing songs// about it //so.//
F813 //Are they?//
F814 //Yeah.//
F812 //Aye that,// it's like a Busted //song about your//
F814 //"That's what I go to school for"// //[laugh]//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 Is that what it's a-. //Incredible, I'm not even//
F812 //Uh-huh//
F813 listening to the lyrics or //payin any attention//
M811 //Uh-huh//
F814 //[laugh]//
F813 //but [laugh]//
M811 //I mean, like,//
F812 //So it just shows you//
M811 there was one total mental teacher in my school, there was about, only there for about six months, //they're like a sort of//
F812 //Uh-huh//
M811 I don't know, like, a temporary kind of, just dossed about
F812 Yeah.
M811 two class-, I think they, like, their main thing was RE though and, like, she got in, like, total trouble //for telling, like, all these//
F814 //RE teachers tend to be a bit// strange.
M811 //Yeah, they were telling, like, one of my//
F812 //[laugh]//
F814 //Just in general [laugh].//
M811 //friend's wee brothers, like, came// to me, he was like, "Our RE teacher's been telling me that Saddam Hussein's the anti-Christ" and //stuff like that, and, like, everyone was just//
F814 //Seriously?//
F812 //Oh my God!//
F813 //[laugh]//
M811 like, "Oh God" and, like, //I had her one time//
F812 //It just shows you what you// //[inaudible]//
F813 //If it gets back// to some parents //do you know what I mean, they cause//
M811 //Yeah.// Like, I had her once, like, like one of my teachers was ill or somethin and she was in and she's busy, like, telling, like, me and my friend, like, one time she went to Dunblane and got lost, this was, like, after the whole Dunblane //thing that happened and then//
F812 //Uh-huh//
F813 //Uh-huh//
M811 she was telling us, like, supernatural forces were, like, drawing her towards the graveyard and stuff, we were just sitting, //[taps table]//
F814 //Oh my// //God!//
M811 //This is// //really freaky, and it's just, like,//
F812 //There is something strange// //about people [laugh]//
F814 //Weird!//
M811 //"Oh God, why are you, like,// in here telling //me things?"//
F812 //But then, some//
F813 //[laugh]//
F812 kids, I mean, like, more so in primary school but if you think about, I mean, you idolised your primary teachers, they were just //like, you put them//
F814 //Yeah.//
F812 on this pedestal and you loved them. //It was just,//
M811 //Yeah.//
F814 //They could do nothing//
F812 //you know?// //Uh-huh!//
F814 //wrong. Even if// they were really really nasty //cause my P one//
F812 //Uh-huh//
F814 teacher was just, I don't know why they let this women deal with young children, she was terrifying //but it was still like at the end//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //Oh God!//
F814 //I still gave her//
F813 //I remember//
F814 shortbread //and like.//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //Took//
F813 //I stuck my tongue// //out, I stuck my tongue out//
F812 //presents for Christmas.//
F813 at my primary one teacher cause she told me off and I went [sticks out tongue] //and I remember getting in//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F814 //[laugh]//
F813 //to so much trouble for it, like,// it was as if I'd //threatened to bomb the//
F812 //[inaudible]//
F814 //[laugh]//
F813 //class and, like, you know, effed and// //blinded, you know it was//
M811 //It was like the worst//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //Now they'd probably stuck their tongue out back at you, play a//
F813 //[laugh]//
M811 //Primary school was so//
F812 //game.//
M811 embarrassing though, so many things, like, I mind there was this wee guy in my, well, he wasn't wee, obviously I was pretty wee at the time as well,
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]// //[laugh]//
M811 //cause, like, in primary one we had, like, a teacher for four days of the week and//
F813 //[laugh]//
M811 one on, like a Thursday or something, like, we absolutely hated and every time he started crying and wet himself, it was //like, every Thursday, he was//
F814 //[laugh]// //Wee boys always wet themselves like that!//
M811 //so embarrassed [inaudible], he was, why do people wet//
F812 //[laugh]//
M811 //themselves in primary school?//
F813 //The toilets in the schools are// //tiny!//
F814 //Tiny!//
F812 //They're not when//
F813 //Like//
F812 you are //small//
F814 //Do you know what I// //was going to say though about, see in secondary school,//
F812 //though [inaudible]//
F813 //No, but, like, when you go in when you're older, like//
F814 did you not think, see when I was in first year of secondary school //I was really scared//
F812 //It felt huge.//
F814 of like the fifth and sixth years, I showed them respect, they went down the stairs before I did, I would not say anything and then by the time I got to fifth year there was pure wee neds in, like, first year, like, "Fuck off!"
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F814 //Pure//
M811 //[laugh]//
F814 "who are you and why are you pushin me down the //stairs?" [laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]// //[laugh]//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //That's the thing, like, I remember though, like,//
F812 //[laugh]//
M811 in primary school, "Aw, primary seven, //can't wait to be then," and I remember being, like,//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 "Oh, I can't wait to be fifteen cause then I'll be able to get fifteens out of the //video shop and stuff like that."//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
M811 Then you get to, like, "Oh, the sixth years, they're so cool, I can't wait to be that," and now you're //just like. I know//
F812 //And no one showed you that same respect.//
F813 //I've always wanted to be twenty-one.// //[inaudible] mmhm//
F814 //No, I always wanted to be eighteen,//
F812 //Have you?//
F814 I never //wanted to be twenty-one.//
M811 //Yeah, you kind of got bored [inaudible]//
F812 //Bit of a boring age//
F813 //Oh, I always wanted to be twenty-one.//
F812 isn't it? //There's nothing else to look forward//
F813 //No.//
F814 //Forty,//
F812 //to after you're twenty-one.//
F814 fifty //death! [laugh]//
F813 //Twenty-five!// //[laugh]//
F814 //[laugh]//
F812 //That's not an exciting age.// //You've got, like, your//
M811 //Yeah.//
F813 //[laugh]//
F812 your, as you say your sort of, where you want to be //by then.//
F813 //At twenty-one you// can drink in the US and you can drive a lorry.
F814 Oh good //cause I'm so desperate to do both of them [clapping]//
M811 //[laugh]//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 Here comes my road trip through the US! //[laugh]//
M811 //I drove a lorry once.//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 //Did you?//
M811 //I'd to drive a removal// van in the summer.
F812 Callum has got the most hysterical CV. //Honest to God.//
M811 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //Cause like I always work for agencies.//
F812 //You should listen to what he's// what, some of the jobs he comes back, I, every summer and you go, "So Callum, what have you worked at this year?" he's like, "Well this year I was a removal man, then I worked in a library," or no, what was it you did, you were, //ehm, you've done//
M811 //What have I done, I've// //I've worked//
F812 //hundreds!//
M811 in a pet shop then I //picked mushrooms,//
F813 //That's dead cute.//
F814 //Then you picked//
M811 //then//
F814 mushrooms?
M811 Yeah, for about three weeks //and then quit because it was so [?]awful[/?].//
F813 //For, like, a restaurant or something// //[laugh]//
M811 //No just like, just in like these//
F812 //No, just in a big field! [laugh]//
F814 //For this for fun or was this your//
M811 //massive, eh//
F814 employment?
M811 This is my employment, yeah.
F812 How, did you get paid per mushroom?
F813 [laugh] //[laugh]//
M811 //You got a basic wage but you got a bit more, like, the weight of mushrooms picked.//
F812 So if it was quite a big mushroom you'd get more if it was just, like, //lots of smaller ones?//
M811 //Well they, they told you what you// pick, you know, like, the //blue, the blue things they//
F812 //That's hysterical.//
M811 come in in the shop? //Yeah, punnets.//
F812 //Punnets.//
F813 //What happens if you picked the wrong// mushrooms?
F812 [laugh] Magic ones! //[laugh]//
M811 //I don't know.//
F813 //And then, like, you got, like, sued by all the people, like, in the// //[inaudible]//
F814 //Are we meant to finish soon or?//
M811 //They're all, they're all// //[inaudible] [laugh]//
F812 //Oh just keep going, you can't, wait till Callum tells you this story, it's hysterical.//
F813 //[laugh]//
M811 Well, like, the blue things, we just got them, like, every day we went in they're, like, "Right, we want to pick these kind of mushrooms," they had fancy names for them, and, like, and this weight and that was, like, related to the, the size of punnet, //[inaudible]//
F813 //Did you wear gloves?//
M811 Yeah you had, it was so, oh it was horrible cause you had to get, the bus picked you up at seven in the morning and drove you out to the country and it was just, like, every day I used to stand there, like, waiting for the bus //in the freezing cold.//
F813 //But you now know where the field// is, we could all go.
M811 It's not a field, it's like, they're in big, //you know like sort of dome sort of things? They're in there.//
F813 //Oh right, like these tunnels, uh-huh, yeah, I know what you, like plastic dome things.//
M811 //Yeah, so I never had//
F812 //Fill your punnet!//
M811 a clue, they were, like, "Oh, pick this kind of mushroom and this sort of weight," and I was, like,
F814 Just put them //all in!//
M811 //Don't know, like, lo-// you had to, like, lay them in these big crates though, the punnets, like, in two layers and people used to cheat and just layer the bottom with upside down empty //ones//
F813 //[inhale]//
M811 because you got paid so they'd be //picking half the much, half as many but getting//
F812 //[inhale] That's terrible!//
F814 //But didn't you get pulled up about it the next day though?//
M811 //paid double.// Well they didn't know because you just, as soon as you finished a crate you put it and then like //[inaudible] They didn't know who was//
F814 //So they didn't know who was doing it then?//
M811 doing it and, like, there was so many times just in the three weeks I was working there, they were like, we got pulled up, they're, "Right, the front now! And like, som-, who's done this?' and if //we find out who's done it you're sacked.//
F813 //Di-, were they giv-, was it well paid?//
M811 It was, it was like, it was at wee-, it was only at weekends so it was like seven, it was like seven pounds an hour //or something.//
F813 //That's quite good isn't it,// //especially when you're like//
F812 //Right, so there's mushroom// mushroom //picking,//
M811 //After the// mushrooms then it was //removals, I was doing remo-, I still//
F812 //[inaudible]//
F813 //[laugh] After the mushrooms!//
M811 sort of do that in the summer now, like, every so often, like, cause it's, then it's, like, signed on //at this agency//
F812 //I can just see Callum, like,// you know the Chuckle Brothers' //sketches? To me, to you!//
F814 //[laugh]//
M811 //[laugh]// //so it's like, so I've signed on with this agency//
F812 //[laugh]//
F813 //[laugh]//
M811 so they get me, like, it's all, like, manual labour so it's like, ehm, //what do you call, like,//
F813 //It's, it's// good money for that cause I've done that before.
M811 It's not great money, it's like four fifty an hour //or something. Yeah.//
F814 //Really?//
F813 I did this thing where I worked, like, three, three days and I got three hundred pounds for it.
F812 Really? //Bloody hell.//
M811 //Sometimes you get,//
F813 //mmhm,//
M811 like, wee tips and stuff, like, if you're doing, like, a house move then //some people, like, I got//
F814 //Yeah.//
M811 twenty quid //one time.//
F812 //But d-, were you// not saying sometimes you had to pack the people's stuff? //Like some people didn't//
M811 //Yeah, like,//
F812 pack their boxes //and just went, "Oh, right//
M811 //and you just//
F812 you, you've to do //that.//
M811 //You'd have to come in and it'd be like, "You do that, cause//
F813 //Would you be expected to do that?//
F814 //Oh my God!//
M811 //like, I think, like, most// of them say, like, you know, "Pack your stuff and we'll get the boxes, you know, we're do-, we don't want to be held responsible //for breaking stuff and"//
F812 //Surely you should be, like,// and then //put ornaments//
F813 //I, I wouldn't ma-, see if I was// moving house, I wouldn't want other people //poking through my stuff, would you not?//
F814 //Neither would I, raking through all your stuff and//
M811 //Yeah, that's what I'd be like, yeah, and you're just having to through all your// drawers and taking, and you're just, like,
F814 //Oh my God!//
