Irish mammy writes list of rules for her son ahead of his Leaving Cert holiday
A young Irishman is planning a Leaving Cert holiday with friends to celebrate his freedom – but not total freedom as he has been given a list of rules from his mammy.
Mick Molley of Co Wexford has completed his secondary education and is heading to Santa Ponsa, Majorca to let his hair down.
It is a classic rite of passage for Irish teenagers and the class of 2018 fully deserve a non-stop party in the summer now their studies are complete.
However, that’s not to say that common sense should completely go out of the window. It’s important to take care of yourself, after all.
Mick found this out when he discovered a note on his suitcase ahead of his trip. It was from his mother, who had written him a list of rules he must abide by on his holiday.
The rules were as follows:
1 – Avoid balconies completely
2 – Walk away from fights
3 – Late night swims result in drowning – don’t do it
4 – Stay away from dodgy tattoo parlours with dirty needles. Don’t ruin your body by getting a tattoo
5 – Stick with your friends
6 – Look out for everyone
7 – Use condoms
8 – Have respect for yourself and others
It seems like a pretty sensible list to us at Ireland Calling, and gives Mick and his pals plenty of leeway. He’s actually got off pretty lightly there.
Mick has posted a photo of the list to witter page
