The Garda Band was coming to the school to perform for us. They were to set up in the hall but were running a bit late.
One of my colleagues was passing by the hall door when she heard the sound of a ball being kicked around. Pulling open the door she announced
"You know you are not allowed to play ball in the hall unsupervised!"
She was stopped dead in her tracks by the sight of three red-faced gardai looking sheepish, while one of them held a football under his arm.
"Eh sorry", he mumbled "We're just waiting for the rest of the band to arrive!"
