Personally, i wasted every minute of my education. Left school at the age of sixteen with practically nothing. I'm not about to blame anyone else for my failings, but somewhere between my home life / schooling, something went drastically wrong.
Fortunately, i met a good woman at the age of 17 and turned things around! I joined the RAF (that soon makes you grow up) and started a family (that also soon makes you grow up). I'm now trying my best to learn from all the mistakes that were made during my upbringing, and apply those lessons with my own children. It seems to be working, too; they're both wonderful kids!
Me: Children, would you like some Cake?
Children: No thanks, Dad. Can we have some Grapes instead, please?
Do i wish i'd tried harder at school? Definitely. On the upside, i can make a Forkilft dance like a Ballerina!
