Radio ‘pranksters’ have a playground mentality
WHEN I started a new career in teaching I was unprepared when, during playground duty, a lovely little girl ran up to me and, in a string of obscene words, told me what I was and what I could do.
She had obviously been primed by others to do this, as I was new. She stood there, full of herself, awaiting my reaction. It was so incongruous that I had to hide a smile before taking her aside for a good talking-to.
It is equally incongruous for adult, educated, successful and rich TV personalities to do the same thing to provoke a reaction or hope for applause. Immature, or what?
