Michael is quite good to answer an email. He has a school email address and during the week, a message to that address will get a pretty much instant response as even a dull email from me appears to trump what might be going on in class. Again, I have to question the school’s iPad policy.
Me to Michael forwarding on an email from the school: See attached re updated school uniform policy and the school coat [Image and details of school coat attached].
Michael: Are they still trying to flog that useless wafer masquerading as a coat? [He feels the cold].
Me: I see on reading the policy that it is obligatory for all classes next year except sixth years, so you’re exempt.
Him: One struggle across all classes.
