This is a question Eccentrics

We all know someone who's a little bit strange - Mum's UFO abduction secret, or the mad Uncle who isn't allowed within 400 yards of Noel Edmonds.

Tell us about your family eccentrics, or just those you've met but don't think you're related to.

Mr Weir(d)
Old Mr Weir was my high school metalwork teacher. He was a little eccentric to say the least.

One of his favourite rants was "Nothing is perfect !" God help you if you ever finished a piece of work and said the P word with him in earshot. He was also quite relegious and took it seriously.
One day the class knew they were going to have a theory period instead of a praticle. Somebody crept into the classroom during break time and drew a large pentogram on the board. Mr weir would not go near the board and he couldnt persuade anyone to clean it off for him. Result in a praticle period for the class.

He only owned one suit that he wore to the friday assembly. It was an old green thing. This coupled with his beard and short round body made him look like a lepruchan.

He was also proud of his thrift . On at least one occasion he told the class how his wife was only allowed to buy clothes from second hand and charity shops. He was also immensly proud of only spending $50 a year on materials for all his classes, despite a budget well into 4 figures .

Mr Weir drove a diffrent car each day of the week because " I like variety" . He owned 7 Austin Maxis.

Truly one of the greatest characters in my school years.

Did you go to
Bognor School, or is it just something about woodwork teachers and religion?

I wonder if the 'something' is that
JC was a carpenter?
