An angry teacher has called Tony Jones from her school to launch a heated defence of teachers' work ethic.
TJ mentioned, with a level of cyncism, that student-free curriculum days often fell conveniently around long weekends, such as the coming Monday before Anzac Day.
Try and do our job for a day.Teacher, Joy
Joy, a teacher, was not impressed.
"It is really disappointing to hear you sneering at teachers for their curriculum days," she said.
"This bullying of teachers, and it is bullying, this is what gives a parent a license to call me on a Monday and say 'Are you the 'C' who teaches my kid?'."
TJ: Where are you at the moment, are you at school?
Joy: Yep, I'm teaching. Yep.
TJ: You're teaching? And it's 9.40am and you're phoning me up?
Joy: Yeah, because I'm preparing a lesson.
TJ: Hmm, a lot of preparation...

Poor Tony. If they don't the profession then leave! Too toxic to be in charge of kids @3AW693— S.B. (@lollyexpert) April 20, 2017
