Lads, I've just opened my packet of mozzarella sticks and there were 13 in there rather than the 12 there's supposed to be.

I thought I'd share my outrageous good fortune with you in the hope that my good luck rubs off on you. If it does, let me know.

I once had a stretch of at least a fortnight in secondary school where my lunchtime pack of mini Jaffa Cakes had not the advertised six, but seven of the delicious little cunts in.

It's a crying shame that many children these days are deprived of things like Jaffa Cakes from their packing up because they'll get confiscated by the lunchbox gestapo.

My typical pack up at school was a cheese sandwich, a packet of crisps (Hula Hoops, Wheat Crunchies, Squares or cheese and onion Walkers), a chocolate biscuit along the lines of a Penguin, KitKat, Club or the one that was like a Gold bar but had wheat embossed on it, possibly a Babybel and a yoghurt. Never did me any harm.

I remember once I had to sit opposite this fat lass and she had corned beef sandwiches. Fuck me, they stunk. I always associated her with cows and stinky corned beef sandwiches after that. Last I heard of her she'd got married to a mobile DJ who is about 30 years older than her.

That sounds proper grim. What are the parents supposed to make their kids these days or is it all school meals?

It varies from school to school but chocolate bars are a definite no in many, a Muller Corner with chocolate rather than fruit compote is borderline as are crisps. They expect things like vegetable sticks instead.

Never heard it called this, so I thought you were yanking. But then the crisp brands stopped that line of reasoning. So I assume it's a northern thing.

I do suspect part of it is to stron-arm parents into paying for school dinners, which there will no doubt be a "profit" margin on. Like with the way they all force youth buy their own uniform from their own shop,and go solar as to incorporate anti-counterfeiting measures so you can't buy knock offs from the Asian shop that sells all the school uniforms.

Abolish schools and replace them with something new honestly, it's too muh of an unsalvageable mess.

I ordered a Chicken Deluxe from McDonalds and when I got it home it was just two Chicken Selects on a bun.

One man gets an extra mozzy stick and another pays £5 to be lied to because the kitchen ran out of chicken.

Academisation has been a disaster for the school system. Most of it nowadays simply revolves around increasingly arcane, arbitrary rules whereby the child is invariably punished for a parent's refusal to shell out for whatever new money-grabbing nonsense they are trying to push. In this case it's just that they want parents stumping up money for the school dinners, so they make pack ups a hassle.

When you combine that kind of opportunitism with the kind of flawless instinct for petty tyranny school teachers have, this is what you end up with. They know they have the power to make you jump through hoops so that your kid doesn't end up in detention every week, and they just can't help abuse it. Some of the more absurd ones I have heard lately (from the resident Raging Indignant Mum at work) include a water bottle with the school logo on which is the only vessel children are permitted to drink from, or jumpers that have different colours for the year group, to ensure parents buy a new one each year and can't recycle them to younger siblings.

It's a good job I don't have kids because I'd probably have petrol bombed their school by now. I never took well to authority while I was a student, I can't imagine dealing with it as a parent and somehow keeping your temper.

It's not just academies that do this. A couple of years ago my daughter's school banned rucksacks and made everyone buy a school branded book bag instead. You've also got to buy a school branded PE shirt and they're also phasing in school branded polo shirts so the parents of the younger kids can't buy a relatively cheap multipack of plain ones from the supermarket anymore.

My cousin was told by her kid's preschool that they're "sugar free", which means treats and sweets that contain or are made of refined sugar are frowned upon. Even homemade biscuits must not contain noticeable amounts of sugar. The only sugar that's allowed is fresh fruit, with the exception of fruit that could be choking hazards, like grapes. Apparently the professional mums parents petitioned the preschool to adopt that as a school rule, and there aren't any exceptions, and children aren't allowed to bring in refined sugar products even if individual parents feel that their kid can handle a chocolate bar or a fizzy drink.

It's this fucking bigotry which boils my piss even if I don't have kids of my own. You are fast tracking your kids for years of therapy with all this overparenting and busybodying.

We've had to buy my daughter a year 6 leavers hoody, when I say had to I mean the alternative is her being the only kid out of about 90 without one. They cost ~£16 and they were given out at the start of last week so they could all be worn for the last couple of weeks of term, but they had the bright idea of getting them in black so they're completely unsuitable to be worn in summer.

My other half is also going nuts about getting thank you presents for the teachers and teaching assistants. Fuck knows why this became a thing.

The grape rule is silly because if the kid's taken out by a grape it's called "natural selection". However, refined sugar is basically complete dogshit-poison and you should do everything possible to avoid it and especially avoid giving it to kids.

Though I'd like to know how, besides pinching some, they're figuring out which homemade snacks have too much sugar. I think they're just pinching some though, aren't they?

This makes me think you're the only man in the country buying these things.
