This is my very first rant, not to much makes me mad, I try to be a nice guy. No push over mind you, but pretty easy going.
Many know I live in the city of Chicago, a lot of kids, Jews, Muslims, blacks, whites....the whole melting-pot. Ages 8-14
A lady in my building is very well known in the city, not sure what she did for the city but it was up there. She had I million dollar park just put
in, in the last year.
I was talking to Lil(the lady) about the kids new more to do, I have a bunch of older people in my building, like 65 and older( you know the people
that have forgotten what it was like to be young and frankly lived in a different world. They call the police on the kids and what not. Tell her I
would like make a team and coach them.
She thinks that its wonderful and blah blah blah. She said she had noticed us over there everyday.
So I start organizing the kid, by playing football, I have taken about 20, we meet everyday at 4 pm, I am teaching them to be a team and How to play,
not just catch the ball.
Doing drills, running laps........
Lil makes the calls and I needed to cut my roster to 12, 8 starters.
SO, I go to the rec center and the lady was ready for me, she gives me a BOOK to fill out, I'm talking 35 pages of personal info, and on top of that
I have to get finger printed and DNA.
ARE F...ING KIDING ME? TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE COUMUNITY, TO VOLUNTEER MY TIME, I HAVE TO GIVE UP ALL MY PERSONAL INFO?
I am really stuck, how do I tell these kids that they cant play because I refuse to my rights violated, they have been working so hard, and its not
like I have anything to hide.
Part of me can understand the why they do it this way, but # your killing me.
I would rather take a voice stress detector test or blood pressure liar test.
