Haha, I see. Well, to answer your question: No, I've never been to a boarding school
I did, however, work for my school as an assistant lab technician in the mornings, so I used to get there at around 7:50 a.m. There's always the usual early birds, and usually tired lol. So, I normally have a wide smile on my face, which grated on someone who seemed a little off with me that morning
. And every other morning, for that matter.
That's where the comment came from
And yes, the interchange was pretty amusing in places hehe.
