It was before I went to the school, but our physics teacher used to enjoy telling the story.

My physics teacher hit someone off a moped by smacking him in the face with a shovel.

Ahh.. School. How I miss it.

ours never did anything like that (though by the 1990s he'd have been in trouble anyway).

He did like to yell though, when required. I remember having triple A-level physics to round out the day; where anyone from 5th year down had a single period followed by a double. There were a bunch of 2nd years making a right racket outside our room, so he went out to deal with them, even went as far as to bring two into his prep room for a stricter dressing down. You could have heard a pin drop when he came back into our classroom; even though we had been perfectly well behaved before
