They used to accuse me for something in the dining room and they’d say, ‘Oh stand in the corner', and I refused to do it ‘cause they didn’t tell me what I did wrong, you know. they probably thought I was doing something wrong in the dining room, which I wasn’t, and they just picked on me for no reason and I just refused to stand in the corner because I didn’t, a) I didn’t know what they were on about, so probably ended up going to the headmaster, or headmistress’ office.
