    always loved a good chase from the wagman haha and even was took back to school and sat down in the heads office and when they went out jumped out of the window and away again hahahaha
     
  2. I spent about 2 years out of 5 in secondary school the rest wagging it either at home or around West Didsbury/fog lane park. Wagman was always bothering my mum, could tell he fancied her so never gave me too much bother other than having to go back every now and again for a fortnight.

    Grew up living in fear of the wagman. Never laid eyes on him and had an image of him looking like some kind of Bond villain with a trench coat, trilby and a briefcase.

    Of course attendance at school may have led to being able to use verb tenses correctly.
    Just saying...

    The Manchester truant officer in the 60s was a bloke called Lunt...generally known as Lunt the Cunt.

    A very good friend of mine barely attended high school for the entire five years he nominally was supposed to and Lunt was always trying to catch up with him (and failing).

    Wagged it twice and was caught twice under unfortunate circumstances, one of them being my mum ringing the school to tell me to come home for a doctors appointment she had made for me only to be told I wasn’t in school. Both instances resulted in a strapping and fully deterred me from future transgressions apart from the FA cup final replay which seeing as my form master was also pulling a fast one to attend he couldn’t really grass me up.

    I’ve wagged in the sense that I’d feign sickness to my mam. Always regretted it. Day time TV was and is fucking tragic.
