Slow news day. If the family can afford it then that's their business how they spend their money.

Just a further attempt by the media to demoralise public servants....So, what's the moral of the story?!? - teachers can afford to take pay cuts because they get pressies like this?!? :sneaky: :sneaky:
As the talks have broken down, there's nothing further for them to report so they concoct something farfetched like this!!

Many of my friends/family are teachers and they've never received anything like that. Candles etc. are the norm and I've heard some say that they would prefer not to get gifts as they feel embarrassed.

the phrase "more money than sense" springs to mind immediately.

In the name of God......... people are really thick. Competitive mummy syndrome methinks.

I wouldn't be shocked by this at all. Of course it's OTT but I wouldn't assume the parents were trying to "achieve anything" by it, it's probably just the normal amount they'd spend on presents, I know a few families like that, they just wouldn't have a clue that it wasn't appropriate.


My take on this too - I have received "token gifts" from clients before that made me cringe they were so OTT.
