These lot have to be pretty much the worst bunch of people I have ever met. I have been going to public schools for my whole life, there are 2 words that describe these characters
naive
ignorant

and maybe liars too..

Everyones mummy and daddy is so rich, that the place effectively becomes a lying fest to see who can spout out the most bull. One chap will say that they have a new computer, the other will then say they got a better one and it goes on and on. It's like a competition.

Another chap who thinks he knows it all about cars claimed in January that he will pass his test within 1 week of turning 17, we all know that's not going to happen, he was 17 last thursday, he hasn't even passed his theory yet. He has a land rover defender, which he will use to drive to and from school every day. I was talking to him about the car, which he bought used, I asked him how many miles its done
"erm, its either 38,000 or 88,000 , can't remember"
ok,, does it have a service history?
"dunno"
How often do you have to service it?
"dunno"
He clearly doesn't have a clue. In another conversation we were talking about cars, I said that non ford cars don't have electric demisting windscreens, he then goes on about how his dads' car (sharan) and his defender have them. I explained to him that land rover = ford and the sharan doesn't have it. He still thought he was right even when presented with facts,

What a moron.


I was having a conversation with another bloke which went onto the topic of holidays and travel, he just said that he will only ever go to western europe or the US for holidays. I asked him why, he said because all other countries are unstable! I try my best to explain to him that its simply not true, but it turns out that he once went to egypt, had an awful time, and never wants to see asia/africa/s. america again. Although I, to an extent, agreed with him about Egypt not bieng the nicest of places, still thought he was ignorant and naive.
Another girl I was talking to was going on about how she went to Tunisia for holiday, I told her that I had been there, and tbh it wasn't that great. She said "not if you go to <insert fancy 5 star hotel name here (forgotten the name>"
I then asked her what she thought of the place, she replied that they only went out a couple of times, it was too dirty outside. She could have sat in a hotel anywhere in the world!

Another bloke (possibly the stupidest one I know) during business studies, we were talking about how businesses accomodate different types of customers, we were talking about mosques in airports, and he says, trying to be funny? clever? I don't know, "Sir, are the mosques there for suicide bombers to make their last prayers or what?"
Everyone just fell silent and stared at him.

Another chap, who is real cocky, thinks he is the funniest guy on the planet (although he does make me laugh) passed his test in december, bought a 1.6 focus zetec for 7.2k from carcraft. Writes it off and only has 3rd party insurance! How his parents didn't get fully comp, I don't know. He was probbably drinking at the time as he crashed it at 1am on a saturday night, though he claims he was sober.

Just shows you what kind of people frequent these places :(

Don't get me wrong, there are some really nice people, especially a few of the teachers, but unfortunatly these happen to be in the minority.

they do my head in.

was in a pub at durham once... and they were talking about something and one of them swore and they all chuckled (in a very posh way)

i left

durham is full of rich students anyways... most the time they arent even clever, it requires no intelligence or brain capacity to repeat from textbooks...

yet these are the people that will land the good jobs, money makes money.

anyways... nevermind.. who cares

Ill have to agree with this, ive been on a few trips in the past where schools are merged, the main one that springs to mind is my Young Enterprise course when we had to do the end of year financial status presentation. Everyone was there and got on great, except the one and only private school there, the Royal Grammar School, and if i said my true views on them id get banned. They are arrogant little sods that have nothing better to do than stare down their noses at you as if you were dragged up. Yes, they are better funded and had all the projectors and fancy equipment, but they were, and are far too cocky for their own good, to the point that no one bothered with them at all, they were left to themselves while all the other schools slated them, and when they lose, phwar, its like all hell breaks loose as they are such bad loosers when they get beaten by a phesant school such as Burnside High.

So glad i grew up in normal school with normal kids, i enjoy being the 'normal' person in society and not one that looks down on people.

Ill shut up now, could go on all morning, but then id never get any sleep.

Other than to point out you attend a public school, the purpose of this thread is what?

(No, this reply is not motivated by jealousy, guess what I went to one as well)

The reason they don't know what a public school is is becuase it's a term thats hardly used these days - most fee paying schools are reffered to as private schools. It seems more sensible that way as well - public implies public sector, which of course is something these schools are not part of.

And of course you are nothing like these people and paid for that rather lovely Mondeo you have all yourself yes? :D

But he isn't ranting about people who have mummys and daddys to buy them things.

It's about them lying about stuff to try and get attention and act like they know it all.
