Slippered At School
I was at school in England in the late 1970s and early 1980s and they still had corporal punishment - the cane for the boys and the slipper for us girls. I was quite good academically and usually well behaved so my only experience with the slipper came as a bit of a shock. PE teachers had a reputation for being keen on the slipper and Mrs. Hammond was no exception. She got fed up with girls taking too long to get changed back into their uniforms after the lesson was over and one day she announced that the last girl out of the changing rooms would have to bend over for a whack of the slipper. It was very effective in making us hurry up and, although it was only one whack and not really a serious punishment, no one wanted to be on the receiving end. Well one day I was chatting to my best friend Tracy as we were getting changed and we both suddenly realised to our horror that we were the last girls left in the changing rooms and one of us was going to get the slipper. Tracy made a mad dash for the door leaving me the last one. So I had to bend over in front of the other girls and I got a whack of the slipper across by back side. It didn't half sting !!!! Needless to say I was never again the last one out.
