basically what my school is doing now, except it's not for detention, every kid has to do it
it's perfectly understandable that all private schools got hit hard with the recession but my school has decided to make sophmores, only sophmores, which i am, dedicate their free periods to work around the school so that they can fire some staff people and save money
so we have to pick some form of work detail and do it during a free period, i have to do grounds crew so we go and do the kind of labor you described mainly on the headmaster's fucking house
the fact that they forced us all into this eventhough none of us were in trouble and they make us work in our free time pisses me off. i've always been happy to help out the community or do stuff like this but only on my own volition, when i'm forced into it i get pissed off. and to add insult to injury my school paid ben from ben and jerry's 20,000 bucks to come to our school and sweat for 30 mins while he talked about how fat jerry was
i'm still ripshit about this, i'm not being some entitled little bitch who doesn't want to work, i just think my school should get its priorities straight. don't get me wrong, there are plenty of kids at my school who need to get their hands dirty and work for once in their lives but i think it's a little ridiculous that my school pushed us into this and only for sophmores

"People always ask me, 'is it worth it, getting hurt that much?' and the answer is yes, I would do it all over again, have six more season ending injuries in the next 10 years to keep doing what we get to do, there's nothing better than sliding down snow and flying through the air"
