Demerit slip


I was once a row monitor in chapel. I didn't really write people up as long as they weren't flagrantly breaking any rules. The only person I really wrote up was myself.

I'd never been really late to chapel until I was selected to be a row monitor. Then twice in one week I was over 25 minutes later. I wrote myself up both times, and 25 minutes late counted as an absence.

I got myself restricted to campus for the 50 demerits that gave me. Then I got a nasty letter telling me I could no longer be row monitor because I didn't care about the rules.

Yeah, I wrote myself up for infractions that seriously penalized me, and I wasn't trustworthy any more.

i never wrote anyone up either ... until i got a note in my box scolding me for not having written someone up who was absent. It's funny because everyone changes chapel seat assignments about 3 or 4 times a semester. The first thing you want to fiind out is who the row monitor is. Then you know who not to let see you doze off (an offense worthy of a couple of demerits) or see you study (considered cheating).

I never wrote anyone up for sleeping. Mainly because I always slept in chapel unless someone like Nonnemacher preached. Which is funny because most people went to sleep for Nonnemacher, but he's one of the few who ever had anything to say other than "obey your elders."

I did write one guy up for doing his homework during class... and only because he had about four books open all spread out in plain sight. People who did it covertly, I didn't mess with. That guy, he made it impossible for me not to do that.

How many demerits do you get for "making eye babies"?

Ryan DeBarr said...

That "eye babies" story is not true. That whole article contained a lot of serious flaws.

PCC has some ridiculous rules, but that one didn't happen, I'm sure. I never heard that term once when I was there, not even in a story.

maybe that was more my time, Ryan.

"optical intercourse" was occasionally whispered in hushed tones, jokingly.

ckhnat said...

i could ask my friend who was a "chap" ... but i don't think she would know. my gang generally stayed away from those areas ... got too weirded out.

Ryan DeBarr said...

Everyone heard about "optical intercourse", but "eye babies" is too much.

I stayed out of Club Commons too. I bunkered down in Geritol.

I read in another blog that at PCC you aren't allowed to sit in a seat that had just been occupied by a member of the other sex...

The Borg said...

Because, if you did, you might end up having their babies...

ckhnat said...

THAT one has no foundation. What probably happened (some people get a kick out of this) is that whoever he talked to knew he was visiting and started making up all sorts of stuff just to wig him out.

What?!! No way?!! REALLY?

And people believe them because they have so many other wacky rules ... why not?

The Borg said...

Or they believe them because they want to...

Wow... nobody ever told me that. I guess it was just pure luck that I never got written up for doing that. I must have done it a thousand times and never got caught.

Separate stairwells exist because some of those students will make out any place they can. It's really pathetic.

The reason they're itching to do so many improper things is because they hate their parents for sending them there. And quite frankly, many of them aren't saved. They think that being a Christian means coming forward at an altar call, praying a quick ABC prayer, and then following a bunch of rules.

And the college, rather than dealing with the fact they have hundreds of students headed for hell, students who shouldn't be there, chooses to clamp down on them even more. In fact, if you even hint that salvation is more than fire insurance, in their eyes you're suddenly a heretic teaching a works religion.
