Crazy school trip stories
** Many years ago a young teacher took a school party on a trip to Paris and Eurodisney. When they returned,the Modern Languages P.T. said to one of the girls who had been on the trip:
"Did you enjoy your trip to France?"
The girl gave her a look of utter contempt and replied:
"We werna in France. We were in Paris!"
** Whilst enjoying breakfast recently in a Paris hotel, a Dundee teacher overheard a group of American schoolchildren, who had arrived the previous evening. They were clearly experiencing the breakfast buffet for the first time.
'I can't find anything I like here - there's not even any bread'.
'Oh yes there is', says her friend, 'it's a tube (pronounced toob), the
bread's a tube!'
* On this particular trip to France, S2 pupils were staying with French
families who provided them with a packed lunch each day. The kids were
comparing their food when a voice was heard shouting in a broad Dundee
accent from the back of the bus - "Eh've got twa sassidge rolls!" When
told by the Modern Languages teacher in charge of the trip that such
delicacies did not exist in France, he repeated his claim and marched
up to the front of the bus.
His teacher had to point out that his host family had provided him
with two pain au chocolat!
