22 Things Only Girls Who Went To A British Girls' School Will Get
The bus stop and the corner shop were prime locations for talking to boys.
You had a very complicated relationship with the local boys' school.
The bus stop was the best place to meet boys.
Apart from on Fridays when it was all about the corner shop.
But of course the corner shop wasn't just about boys.
There were always girls who tried to get out of P.E. every time they had their period.
If you'd just got your ears pierced and you couldn't take your earrings out, your P.E. teacher made you cover them in plasters.
You always had the weird chunky lump around your waist from rolling your skirt up.
If you stayed for sixth form and didn't have to wear a uniform you know how little effort girls can put into getting ready in the morning.
Your common room definitely included a sacred "man wall".
Any male teacher under 40 was automatically a full on sex symbol.
There was a lot of bitching and gossip, but by the end of seven years there wasn't anything left to bitch about.
Everyone knew everything about everyone else's sex lives, or lack thereof.
Talking about any bodily functions was not a big deal.
And your desks were covered in just as much rude graffiti.
Your toilets were always blocked because everyone flushed tampons all the time.
All girls know the pain of the saggy crotch tights and therefore it was totally acceptable to stop in the middle of the hallway to yank your tights up.
No one actually got changed in the locker room because it was gross and usually flooded.
It was also where the dreaded lost property was kept.
So you definitely just got changed in the loos instead, or just in the middle of your form room.
The toilet is also where all the major crying happened.
Learning without boys was actually amazing.
And it definitely gave you some of the best years of your life.
