I am in a marching band at a high school, and during my stay for 3-4 months, I feel a bit suspicious...
So far there are rules regarding joining rehearsal, that says forget anything else and stick to band... and I do not mean normal stuff.
If you are sick, you have to go.
If you got stuck in a road, you have to go.
If you or one of your family members are either in the ER or dying, you have to go.
If you have an appointment, for the doctor, dentist, or eye doctor, you have to go.
They will kick you out!
Also they told me this yesterday,
If you do not wear a hat, you are either kicked out or marked as unexcused absent.
Just for not wearing a hat too.
So what they are trying to show me (or us all band members), is that forget about your health, your family, and your friends, and join their band.
Sounds a bit like NWO to me (meaning the schools are acting like so too.)
Forget about your health, your family, and your friends, and join them.
If you do not agree, or they do not like you, they will throw you out!
I do not know, but they all look odd to me.
Am I being paranoid, or something is wrong here?
