Rude names

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

‘‘Yes you, what’s your name boy/girl. No, not your first name or the lot, just the one at the end.’’

The Chron­i­cle’s re­cent re­ver­sion to sur­names re­minds me of times long ago at a strict board­ing school – and I thought I had es­caped!

Yours is a com­mu­nity pa­per, a good one, but this is sim­ply ir­ri­tat­ing and rude. Let’s just have some ba­sic good man­ners for so many de­serv­ing peo­ple in our dis­trict. Save the sur­names only for the naughty ones.

Very lit­tle jour­nal­is­tic ef­fort is re­quired to fix the prob­lem. Please do so.
