You know when a conversation isn’t going anywhere
I was in Std 9 or as it is called now Gr 11 (second last year of Highschool in South Africa). I had changed schools, from a private school to a government school.
I was shocked when I went to a lesson which was called “Cadets”. They actually expected us to march. I was thinking Nazi fucking Youth League. So I had the following conversation with one of the teachers:
“Mam, please may be excused from doing this, I don’t see the point.”
“Marching is very important to learn uniformity.”
“What is wrong with being unique, did not all inventions come from people that thought out of the box?"
“You learn to work together and to be a team”
“It is about discipline”
“So mindless zombies are preferable?”
