The lesson leaned from school days was of hate, blame, and grudges. The fantasy of escape supports this, as the notion of best days of life takes second place to the countdown to the end, of the days and the contact with others. In the early afternoon minds wonder from recycled teaching plans, and head towards the gates, the busses home, and the fist in the face of that week’s hated favourite.
Of course, this is the best preparation possible for the office. Vacuous games continue with the politics of well dressed backstabbing and self importance.
