I just spent, on the way to a visit lesson, a delightful bus journey in a very crowded 214 with a mother with two children, one of whom was sitting next to me but half the time screaming at his mother to give him more smelly greasy chips so he could slobber and dribble over them, threatening to spill them over me, while practically climbing on top of me to yell at his mother some more, demanding some more greasy smelly chips,, while the other kid, a littler one in the pram, was screaming and screaming non-stop. This is recommended for developing patience and strength of character, on neither of which I felt I needed any strengthening whatsoever... I of course didn't say anything. She was clearly harassed by her circumstance, no point adding to that.

I got off the packed bus one stop early. Arrived at my pupil's building, rang the intercom without any answer. After a short while there appears.. the young mother with the pram and the two children on two. She enters the building and glances back at me with extreme suspicion....
