Glenn had just arrived at school on his first day of year seven. His first two lessons flew by and at break, he decided to head to the toilets. Hardly being able to reach the door handle, with all his strength, Glenn shoved the door open. Inside, there were several other boys minding their own business and as you would expect, Glenn paid no notice.
One of the boys looked over to his friend and shouted,

Glenn didn’t know what to do to - be scared or to act casual? Suddenly, his mind was made for him as he realized he hadn’t washed his hands. The perfect excuse to edge away from the situation and try to work out what to do.
