The school I went to had a really old fashioned headmaster. He wouldn't allow the girls to wear trousers, we all had to wear skirts. Also, the coats had to be navy blue; and the headmaster threw a fit cuz my coat was black. My mum basically told him that if he wanted me to wear a navy blue coat, then he was welcome to buy me one, but she couldn't afford to replace a perfectly good coat at this time. So I got to keep my black coat. The head also banned football from being played, cuz he thought it unladylike. What did we play instead? Hockey.
