This morning I picked up a schoolteacher going to work at one of our local schools, and on the way there she asked to stop at a corner shop. A few minutes later she emerged carrying what she told me was her breakfast, this consisted of a bag of crisps and a chocolate bar. Well talk about double standards, our kids are constantly taught about healthy eating and the need to eat a balanced diet, perhaps that's what they mean by balanced a choccy bar in one hand and a bag of crisps in the other. I guess it's something some of our teachers may have in common with some of the health care professionals I pickup, a lot of these people are overweight and rank as some of the biggest drinkers and smokers in the town. I guess with these folk who should know better that it's a case of do as I say and not as I do.
