If you’re wondering why we are raising an entire generation of pussies this may give you some insight:
Look at this garbage from the Brockton Enterprise:
EASTON – As a way to boost morale, show support for the hometown football team and as a practical matter, Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School in Easton announced that there will be a two-hour delay for class to begin on the Monday morning after the Super Bowl. The regional school, which serves nine communities including Brockton, announced the two-hour delay on Friday afternoon.The school floated the plan earlier this week, saying the delay would be based on the amount of Patriots support on display in class on Friday. The superintendent of the regional school district, Luis Lopes, said the feedback was mostly positive when the idea was teased on Facebook on Thursday.
“The show of support by the staff and students along with over 48,000 post reaches on Facebook made this an easy decision,” the vocational school said in a Facebook post on Friday “Congratulations and go Patriots!”
Class normally starts at 7:50 a.m. at Southeastern, but it would begin at 9:50 a.m. on Monday with the delay in place, Lopes said. Dismissal during the afternoon will take place as usual at 2:30 p.m. This will be the first time ever that Southeastern called for a morning-after-the-Super-Bowl delay. The regional district served by the vocational school includes Foxboro, where the Patriots play their home games at Gillette Stadium.
Lopes told The Enterprise that the purpose of the two-hour delay is two-fold. First of all, it’s a source of pride, to come together and support the home town football team as they head into the championship game. Second, Lopes said that statistics from previous Patriots Super Bowl years show that attendance is lacking on the days following the big game. Lopes also justified the proposed two-hour delay citing the fact that Southeastern has longer hours compared to many public schools in Massachusetts. At least 990 hours of core instruction are required by the state each year, Lopes said, and Southeastern is on pace to notch 1,100 hours of class time due to its extended days during the non-winter months.
That’s right. Southeastern Regional Votech decided that their students deserved a two-hour delay this morning after the Patriots went in to a first-ever historical overtime last night. Yeah. They got to go to school two hours late while the rest of Pats Nation had to crawl out of bed with hangovers, dark circles, and no voices to face the music in the real world. Give me a muhfuckin break.
Is it awesome that we won? Totally. Even I, SSTG, who doesn’t watch sports, stayed up late so that Mr. Turtlegirl could prance around our living room with our kids like he was Fred Astaire.
But you know what Mr. Turtlegirl and I did this morning? We woke up and went to fucking work like the rest of you poor, celebratory, saps reading this. Oh, and so did every other kid in New England! Well, except this ONE group of votech kids in Easton. God forbid they are a little tired while learning to trim bangs or change a spark plug.
It’s expected that you, and all your co-workers, will be high-fiving with bleary eyes, yawning in meetings, and making your interns go and get you an extra cup of coffee. Desk Girl hurled the last coffee run at the boss because it was the fifth time we sent her out to Dunks this morning. It’s part of the process. Suck it up.
Look, I get it. It’s really exciting and what the Pats pulled off had 10k to 1 odds. That doesn’t mean that a select group of kids needs an extra couple hours of sleep. Do you think Brady will sleep at all between now and Wednesday? Nope. Because he’s a winner. He knows what it’s like to have to press on. To endure. We probably won’t ever see another one like him because the future generations are straight-up doomed because of the participation trophy mentality.
Gail obviously went to a Votech and is a strong supporter of education.
Those administrators should be shit-canned for being part of the downfall of society. Just sayin’.
