Were any of you people school patrols when you were a kid?

I was a patrol in the 6th grade. I wore an orange plastic sash that went diagonal like a seatbelt. I was in charge of keeping the little kids in a front entrance before the morning bell rang for them to go to their classrooms.

I wanted to be a traffic patrol (yes, back in the day school kids were allowed to be crossing guards), but they wouldn't let me. I complained and the principal made me clean the erasers. Chalk dust everywhere.

Yes, I was traffic patrol.

Yes, I was a Patrol Boy way back when.

There were no AK-47s in those days but we were issued 4 war surplus hand grenades each school term.

Good times.

5th Grade. Bike Patrol - "Directed" traffic of kids leaving school for the day.

Even in childhood, you could see the Nazi tendencies reveal themselves in some of the patrols.

We also had a silver badge that was worn like a brooch. I liked the badge, but thought it clashed with the orange sash.

No, nobody in my class was autistic.

School patrol? You mean a safety?

Oh, yeah. I was traffic patrol. Still have my pin (small badge) issued by AAA. This was in the sixties.

I was. Everyone in my family called me a "little stinker" just because I happened to be the only one with any sense of responsibility.

Cunts. All of them.

Who you calling "you people", punk?

In my school it was considered kind of nerdy to be a patrol. Not infrequently I would overhear a kid saying to the Patrol, "You're not the boss of me!!!"

I was Captain of the School Patrol. It was all downhill from there.
