What we are as adults is strongly coloured by the events and people in our lives during our troubled teen years. that time of tantrums and tears, experiment and excitement, angst and agony. go on.....admit that you remember what it was like......that time when you were groping around trying on various hats, testing them to find the one that was the perfect shape. tossing authority style titfers out of your pram with the disgust only an adolescent can adequately achieve.....ohhh yes.....i KNOW you remember !
TITFER IS COCKNEY SLANG FOR HAT (TIT FOR TAT).
