It seems like times have changed since I was a kid, after a primary school was forced to apologise after sending a crude text message to parents.
According to the Daily Mail, the message was sent to parents reminding them about mass at the school the next day, and included the line: “If we can wash your dirty willies please bring them along. Thank you.”
I know, how rude.
But don’t worry guys, it was all just a hilarious mistake. Six minutes later they posted a correction saying the message was meant to specify they could wash ‘wellies’ not willies.
I am so sorry it’s WELLIES!! WELLINGTON BOOTS. Sincere apologies for any offence caused.
The text message, was sent from ‘St Mary’s Primary School’ – although the exact location of the school is not clear.
