to two girls for a mock interview at a bank - one was Mae West and the other Racquel Welch. One girl blonde, the one brunette girl each 15 yrs old. Is it just me or are they weird names to choose?

Yes. Inappropriate

They're just names of famous women.

It's odd they had to have names which were not their own but I don't think those chosen are particularly odd.

Myra Hindley and Eva Braun would have been odd!

Given that it's unlikely the teenagers would get the reference, or that the maths teacher is old enough to have -erm - memories of the ladies in question in their prime, I don't really see a problem tbh.

Both known for their big bust. Hugely inappropriate.

Are they? There was me thinking they were known for being actresses.

Didn't realise they'd also starred in page 3 shoots back in the day.

It's not just you and they are weird. Neutral names or their real first names.

I would assume young 'uns wouldn't know who they were.

ExitPursuedByABear Sun 28-Feb-16 17:11:56

Possibly a bit odd. Who gave the names?

They were known for being 'sex symbols'. It's not the same as calling them Judi Dench and Margaret Rutherford.

originalmavis Sun 28-Feb-16 17:12:59

Mae West was very funny. Died very young as she couldn't/wouldn't have a blood transfusion I believe.

Both known for playing a lot of roles where they were basically wank fodder. Exactly how a 15 year old should be encouraged to think of herself - not!

Were the boys known as Magic Mike and Mr Big?

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 28-Feb-16 17:14:22

Ah so the Maths teacher is a pervert for using those names. I see!

I think you should complain to the school op, hopefully they'll sack him. hmm

Think that was Jean Harlow, originalmavis, who died young I mean.

Both known for having big boobs? News to me. I thought they were known for being actresses.

Grilledaubergines Sun 28-Feb-16 17:19:34

Male or female teacher?

acasualobserver Sun 28-Feb-16 17:20:35

Seems like a funny maths lesson to me.

EscobarsMule Sun 28-Feb-16 17:22:06

Male teacher. This was in 1992 by the way.

Birdsgottafly Sun 28-Feb-16 17:24:25

They were primarily sex symbols, not a description used today, but that's what they were.

Inappropriate, definitely.

whitershadeofpale Sun 28-Feb-16 17:25:02

1992 as in 24 years ago?!

Get over it, it would have been barely worth mentioning at the time.

Birdsgottafly Sun 28-Feb-16 17:26:12

""Male teacher. This was in 1992 by the way.""

That explains it, perving off teen girls was still overlooked.

If today, then it would be a 'warning' offence.
