OUR school secretary, overworked as usual, received yet another of those anonymous and potentially time-wasting phone calls this week.
"We are updating our records," said the caller cheerfully, "can you give us your DFEE reference number?" It's one of the innumerable facts Hazel is able to recall instantly. The inormation changed hands and as the conversation was ending Hazel, polite as ever, asked the caller to identify themselves. "Oh," was the slightly surprised response, "We're the DFEE." 'Nuff said?
