I seriously have little to no respect for the percussionists in my school band.
During marching season they’re all arrogant shits,
and during concert season they sleep and talk in the back constantly while the rest of us are attempting to please the conductor.
I don’t CARE if some of them don’t play during different songs, be respectful!!
I’m almost ashamed that my boyfriend is part of that group…
Earlier I heard a girl I know complaining about how the drama department doesn’t get enough respect.
Excuse me? Fuck you! You get full houses all three nights whenever you have performances for plays and whatnot…and people PAY to get to see them!! The drama department gets interviewed and gets a story in the local paper (most of the time on the front page) for every play!
The school band on the other hand has never gotten respect. The principal acts like it’s so easy and meaningless to play an instrument and play the pieces that we are assigned…but no, you stupid fat man. Even though our concerts are free we still only get maybe 2/3 of the seats filled…and they’re all just family of the band students. It’s not like our band is terrible or anything, we’re actually really good.
I really hate how people look down so much on the beautiful music we perform and look so highly on school plays. Come on, nobody here even knows how to act right. They all suck major.
Respect your elders.
They hold so much knowledge and stories and secrets.
They won’t be around forever.
