We went to Luke’s graduation. I went to the website to find out the times and I also saw the rules. It was one of those iffy things. Rain forecast, if it was held outside we could go, if inside he only could have 4 tickets, which would be his family. No one told us where to find out the decision. The decision would be made two hours before. So said the website.
SO we decided to GO. RULES SAID: no umbrellas would be allowed. No cell phones and you would be scanned for metal at the gate.
Another strongly stated rule, no clapping or acknowledgement until after all diplomas were awarded then everyone would give the standing round of applause.
I am rooted and founded in the moral guidelines, FOLLOW THE RULES! My military background yells that, so I play by and follow RULES!
OUTSIDE must be the decision, SINCE hundreds of folks are parked EVERYWHERE and inline for the Football stadium. WE parked and got in line: BEHIND HUNDREDS OF UMBRELLAS. We were carrying the little disposal ponchos just in case.. No Umbrellas were turned away. And there was regular scattered yelling and clapping for (their)‘SOMEONE SPECIAL’.
I HAVE DECIDED IN THIS CIVILIAN WORLD RULES ARE MADE JUST FOR FUN! (just incase someone wants to enforce them) LOL I am not against umbrellas, they are common sense if you might get rain. But why make a rule if you are not planning on enforcing it? NO CELL PHONES! are they nuts? This generation lives on the iphone or it’s clone. It is also the camera for heavens' sake. There is no way they are leaving them home!
Soooo, I am already planning Stella’s Graduation 2033. I am going to have my wheel chair pushed close to the stage. I want two air horns. and when they call her name, Imma going to blow everyone away. and keep on yelling and clapping as they tow me off the field. I plan to join in, and enjoy BREAKING THE RULES! (I will fly out to Utah and practice at Elsie’s graduation, LOL)
Seriously, do you break the rules? Or are you one who reads the sign and believes it means what it says?
This is my fun post, well as close as I get to fun, LOL
Thanks for stopping here,
I do try to follow all rules, brain washing from the USMC! LOL
This might be a 50’s Packard (Lincoln?), Louis will get me if I am wrong!
