There's Not Enough Like Him

Romance isn’t dead.
But it’s not for lack of trying.

James Tate, a senior at a Connecticut high school, really wanted to ask this girl to go with him to the prom. He wanted to do something special and unique, because he really liked this girl.

So what does he do? This no good criminal and two accomplices, in direct violation of school policy and decency, cut out 12” cardboard letters and defaced school property.

Well…by “no good criminals” I mean advance placement students. You can read that as nerds, if you like.
And by “deface” I mean stick to the brick wall on the front of the school, with removable tape, the words.
“Sonali Rodrigues, will you go to the prom with me? HMU – Tate”

How sweet is that?

Well, Sonali said yes obviously and for his “crime against humanity” Jimmy got a one day suspension.
Justice was served.

Ah, if only. See school regulations state that if you get any suspension after April 1st you may not attend a school function.
Like a prom.

A shitstorm has erupted over this. Students, parents and the community are pissed off. The Mayor and even the governor of the state have chimed in, saying its bull shit.
A Facebook page with 130,000 followers is up. This story has been on local and national news. Celebrities and even Jimmy Kimmel have mentioned it. And now even a State Representative is getting involved to try and fix this.

James is crushed; he offered to clean the school on weekends. He tried to take all the blame on himself to spare his two friends from getting in trouble. Sonali is torn she wants to go to her prom but it wouldn’t be right to go without him. Students are talking of boycotting the schools prom and having another dance the same night somewhere else so they can go.
All because school Principal Dr. Beth “sand in her twat” Smith refuses to budge.

You would think in a world where guys these days treat women like crap, where music routinely refers to them as bitches and ho’s, that the school would encourage a little old time romance. So he taped letters to the wall, there was no damage done. If you have the need to punish him, you did with the suspension. There’s no need to cast this negative shadow over the prom. It affects all the kids on a night that should be memorable for them. The kid’s a romantic, he cared for this girl and he showed her and all the school how he felt. That takes real balls and is far too rare a character trait these days.

Hopefully the cunt…erm principal will grow a heart and some common sense and let the kid go. But no matter what happens
Jim,
dude,
You are SO getting laid over this.

I actually appreciate those words a lot, and I'm glad you took the apology the way I was hoping you might. I think we probably think a lot alike, I just put different names to the same concepts? Maybe. I don't know.

I should have just said, "Ditto"

Haiku my brother, I am truly happy for you. I understand how a guy can get out of sorts when the pressures of life are at your door. I have my own crosses and at times I get hyper-reactive under their weight too.
I am happy that the joy of love shines within you and your lady. May that light never dim. cherish the fact she is with you and know how luck you are to be with her.
And yes thoes shoes are real as it gets.

I accept you apology and in turn offer mine for any hardship I may have placed upon a fellow interweb stranger.

I wish you continued good fortune in life.

Sorry I was mean to you on the internet. You were being pretty annoying, but I was being more diligent in my meanness because I was unhappy after moving back to CA. Now, I'm out of a bad situation, living alone with my lady again and the shoes are real as fuck.

But yeah, you know the crazy mom story of mine? Well if you don't, it's one of my first posts. Anyway, my horrible mother helped develop a crazy strong relationship between me and my sister. She's grown a bit desperate it seems in her older age, using people and admitting horrible things (using people we both love kind of things) to me while drunk (and now that I rarely drink that means I am not drunk enough to forget the shit she tells me), all of which really upset me. Anyway, this was then more or less done to me, albeit not as horrible and fucked up as the others.

So, now the best advice anyone can give me is, "Well, there's nothing you can do, that's the way she is (she is bipolar and who knows what the fuck else is wrong with her, although I guess that pretty much covers it. But seriously, fuck. She is ridiculous) and you just have to remove yourself from it all."

Well, fuck. One of the main reasons I moved down is my nephew, her son. That's another thing, I was told about what a hard time he was having at school, but now I know why. It's her. It's her and it's his future step-father, who was supposed to be like a brother to me. And I guess he's going to be. I've been there and I've seen the shit my nephew has to deal with, he has so many obstacles and he's only 9 years old. Many of them are identical to the ones I grew up with. You may think I'm an honery douchebag who shouldn't breed, but the last part isn't true. My nephew really does benefit from having me around, I help him with his homework, get him excited about school, and more importantly I am there to relate and understand. Now, I'm supposed to abandon him to the wolves, more or less. Because trying to help was genuinely driving me crazy.

So, I went to the doctor, my sister convincing me that I might be bipolar as well. So, I unleash the brutal honesty, and my doctor tells me it's not my brain, but the insanely high stress situation I moved into. Oh, I had just finished my 2 year degree and was part of a dta to go to any school in WA that mattered. Now, I cannot go to school any earlier than November, 2012. I was pretty happy about getting school taken care of, partly because I dropped out of high school (my sister encouraged that. And my move down to CA. Horrible that our youth gave her influence over me because she has never given me good advice), so that's been another blow that's certainly magnified by the nephew/sister shit.

The one thing she does verify, is that the ad/hd diagnosis from when I was 12 is pretty fucking spot on. Which is nice to hear, that I'm not crazy like the rest of my crazy ass family. I always felt like I had dodged the bullet and it felt good to verify that. My sister was FURIOUS when I told her the news. Seriously yelled about how I wasn't taking the help I needed and that she knew I was bipolar. Fucking hell. You know what, Fallen? I don't even want to write about it anymore.

I guess this is a weird thing to do on ubersite, but I just wanted to apologize. You totally bug the shit out of me and I feel like you took things a tad on the serious side (Meaning I never went on ubersite with the intention to piss you off, and often times it only took like a sentence to spark this three paragraph response, and then all of the sudden the antagonize fallen wheels are in motion), but I was totally being a douche. My bad.

So, now you have a giant, overly personal response of your very own.

Oh, and I just listened to brando's shoes on your feet song, and it made me send loving texts to my lady. Even in my bitterness I liked the shoes on your feet review. It made me smile and feel better about life on account of I get to go through it with my lady. Which is good.

On an unrelated note, the brain science podcast is pretty neat.

Depends. The one I'm working on right now is a 10' for the tender, but I'm looking at doing a series of them between 20' and 32'. Believe width around is around 4" for the 10' and around 16" for the 32.
-----
Get yourself five sawhorse kits at Lowes, the kind that have the prefabbed metal ends for the legs and crossbeam. Use 2x4s for the legs but use 36" sections of 2x10 for the crossbeams. Notch the 2x10s about 4" deep and progressively wider as your diameter increases (won't be a perfect fit and doesn't need to be). Use the three smallest ones for the small mast and all five for the large one. Secure the mast to the sawhorses by tie-down straps, over the mast, under the sawhorse, over the mast, under the sawhorse on the other side, connect the hooks, tighten.

WIKI
Romance is the pleasurable feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.

In the context of romantic love relationships, romance usually implies an expression of one's love, or one's deep emotional desires to connect with another person.

Historically, the term "romance" originates with the medieval ideal of chivalry as set out in its Romance literature.

I mean if it was that important to him he could have simply gone to the principal with his idea and made it happen, OR at the very least found out that he was breaking a rule that could prevent him from going to the prom altogether. Sadly, the bit about folks deciding when and where what rules apply to them is true. My mother in law for example...that woman DOES NOT understand that some things just are NOT debatable/negotiable when it comes to matters of state/federal law.

It's not "following orders cop-out bull shit".

It's following the rules because they are there for a reason.

Like Sico said, when you open that window, it's nearly impossible to close. You bend the rules for one student and not another then you are, again, seen as Hitler. The next student can just say "You let Billy do it, I should be able to do it, also!". If you don't let Johnny get away with something similar to Billy's infraction, people will be up in arms. Then Suzy will want special privileges. Then Becky, Joe, Sam, Frank, and so on.

theres no indication that he is spoiled nor pussified.
you dont think that because of this all over the country trenchcoat wearing teens ar going to hoist boom boxes over their heads outside of girls windows do you?
(though how cool would that be?)

this was a non issue that became an issue because someone wants to play lil hitler with her power.
he cant go to the prom rules are rules, thats just following orders cop-out bull shit.




p.s. even though I have you in the crushing grip of reason, keep fighting me. I need to keep my mind off another issue.

So if he'd have taped the letters to the wall *before* 4/1, he'd have gotten the suspension and been allowed to go to the prom. It's only because he did so *after* 4/1 that he has the additional punishment of being forced out of the prom. Seems like that's the avenue to pursue if they must have the prom at the school.

However, the obvious thing to do is to have an alternate location off campus for the dance and completely ignore the school. Principal Victoria's "rule" only applies to her own little vinyl-tiled kingdom, so if they get together and decide to take the party across the street, they don't even have to let the obstinate bitch in the room. That would be funny indeed. Bet it'd be no problem at all to get the local American Legion or K of C or Masons to donate the venue. Plus it'll make good experience for later on when the kids have to deal with college dorm rules and homeowner associations and county councils: if they're in your way, go around them.

but isnt disobedience for the "right" reason what this country was founded on?

(cue "god bless america" playing in the background)

he didnt set out to break a rule, he set out to show his love for a girl. Isnt that the best lesson we should be teaching in schools? To care about one another?
to treat each other with civility and kindness?

(music gets louder)

James set out to do something pure and caring.
and along the way he broke a rule. Well he stood by his actions, he took his punishment like a man. He accepted the outcome of his actions and he is persecuted for it.
well I say that's wrong
and If any one here is at fault it is the school system that forgot what learning is all about.

No. The schools are charged with teaching facts.

Again, I'm not debating the punishment vs. what he did.

May be too harsh. May not be harsh enough. Not my place to decide.

There is a HUUUUUUUUGE difference between rebellion from tyranny and asking some broad to a dance.

He may not have set out to break a rule, but he broke it.

Is this what we want our already spoiled, entitled, and pussy-fied future generation to think? That if the motive is "pure" enough, the rules don't matter?

Totally agree that this principal is an asshole. OK: He broke a few rules.

But he didn't shank someone in the hall or shoot up in the bathroom. Fuckin' A....

He may have broken no civil/criminal law, but the school still has rules.

For the most part, any student on school grounds at anytime are subject to these rules.

I'm not saying that the punishment fits the crime, here. I'm not even going to debate that.

This is about America deciding that some people are subject to rules/laws and others (based on ulterior motives - in this case, pulling a Lloyd Dobbler)should be shrugged off with a sitcom-y "Whaddya gonna do?".

What we don't need to do is implant in these kids' minds that rules don't apply if your actions have the "right" reason.

FP yeah it has 80's rom com all over it
but maybe we do need to let some shit slide.
I dont know about you but all it seems like I hear about these days are people treating each other like shit.
violence and hurtful names, no respect for anyone, or even themselves.
shit man I always tried to see the good in people but damn if it isnt harder and harder to find these days.

the police said he broke no law, there was no damage to anything, he not only served his suspension. He wanted to take the heat for his friends and do extra punishment on the weekend to attone for really nothing at all.

OH SHIT! I missed the "facebook page of over 130,000 followers"!!

SHIT JUST GOT REAL!!

Are they all changing their profile picture? i mean, that's what we do now right? Inaction? Doing nothing and hope something works out?

Facebook "activism" is the new prayer.

Do we teach the consequences of actions, regardless of how chivalrous those actions may appear or do we ignore the consequences and teach the kids that life can be treated like a Hollywood romantic comedy?

And where do we draw the line if other students decide to do similar things? Do we just allow all rules to be bent to fit the notions of romance?

Fuck no.
