We grew up hearing from our parents that our school days are the best days of our lives and you know what? They weren't wrong.
In many ways it was a carefree existence. All you had do was turn up, knuckle down for about four or five hours and generally run around like a headless chicken with all your mates at lunchtime.
But let's not pretend that primary school wasn't full of d*cks. Here's a rundown of the worst kind of Irish primary school student who all had the unenviable talent of constantly ruining your day.
We're sure a lot of you teachers out there will relate to this:
1. The sporty kid
They were literally good at everything and they actually looked forward to P.E. What's that about?
2. The teacher's pet
Teacher won't be there in later life, hun.
3. The one who told on everyone
Why? What good could come of it?
4. The annoying bully
Why are you even here?
5. The lick
Worse than the teacher's pet. At least the teacher liked the teacher's pet.
6. The nice kid
Euggh... Like, painfully nice.
7. The rebel
Oh, how we hate them, but also how can we be more like them?
8. The maths whizz
How in Christ's name is this so easy for them?
9. The gross kid
Sticky face, snotty nose. You know the one.
10. The one who was always distracting everyone
Could someone please turn him off? Some people are trying to learn!
11. The one who everyone fancied
With their perfect hair and chiselled jawline. But are they funny? Oh, they are? Shite.
12. And finally, the one your parents always compared you to
"Well, I wonder how Thomas down the road got on in this test?"
"Shut up, Mam."
