Why yes, yes it is.
I mean why would the school get so bent out of shape at a student bringing in a chair to sit on?
Oh you were talking about me?
Go re-read the thread and you might get it.
And in regard to sitting somewhere else, well:

I don't bring my chair from home to have a place to sit at in college.
Go to the cafeteria or something. Why can't you study at the student center?
I'm sure they have one.
They have plenty of chairs there.
Maybe I thought, "Gee, it's such a nice sunny day outside, maybe I should go sit out there and enjoy nature whilst finishing my assigned
I don't see why my reasoning matters. It's not like I was picking the chair up and beating people with it, I was sitting in it doing homework, what
most students are expected to do while in school.
The fact of the matter is that my bringing of a chair to school broke absolutely no rules. None whatsoever.
When I asked the school to show me this rule they were saying I was violating, they could not produce it. Therefore, as far as I am concerned, it does
not exist and I can bring whatever the hell I want (within reason of course) all WITHOUT having to ask for their permission.
Here, let me try and make this simpler for you...
If you got in trouble for minding your own business and not breaking any laws or rules, and the people getting you in trouble were holding your
educational or job future ransom, I'm pretty sure you would be pissed.
Now imagine they are doing all that simply because you just brought in a chair to sit on in between your classes. Pretty stupid move on the part of
I don't get how people like you can just roll over and take getting reamed by a bunch of power-tripping a-holes. "You're wasting your time", and "Why
bother", and "You won't win", I've been hearing that junk from people like you for the past 48 hours.
I'm sorry you don't seem to understand the value in standing up for one's self, but maybe when your educational or work record is getting desecrated
for absolutely no valid reason at all, then you might understand
Plus, why should I have to ask permission to bring a chair, when other students bring plenty of other crap that is way more "distracting" and
"disruptive" than an object that is not meant to be hit, thrown, tossed, or moved much at all really.
I hope this happens to you someday. Seriously. I hope some figure of authority in your life screws you over for something stupid, trivial, and
pointless. I hope you and everyone I have had to repeat this whole concept over and over to today get seriously shafted for doing nothing wrong, maybe
then you'll get it.
