Anyone else enduring 'Sports Day' at their school today?
« on: October 12, 2017, 02:37:29 pm »
By "enduring" I mean the sheer noise of the event. Not the kids running around having fun but the K-pop blared at an inexplicable volume and the teacher screaming non-stop into the microphone at decibles high enough to be heard in space. Honestly, the yelling is just beyond comprehension. It's so unnecessary and extreme - and this is a residential area. There are people who work night shift who shouldn't live to this level of noise when trying to sleep.

Glad the students are having a fun day, they deserve it, but surely it can be done with Dr. Goebbells screaming blue murder into a microphone.

Goodness, glad I live in a small town.  Our sports days are never very loud. 

Today there was an event for the elderly at the gym though.  Heard lots of drums.  I imagine there were lots of old people dancing hahahah

I live in a small town, too. Not only was the music and yelling extremely loud but for the first several hours it was piped into all the classrooms in the school - even though all the students were outside.

Loud music and shouts at a festival/sports event. I'm stunned. I have never encountered that at any sporting event in my life before.

Define "small town"  :smiley:

Yea, that sounds bothersome though.  Like I get it, it's a festival, but it's not my cup of tea.

Your complaint is ridiculous. You're literally complaining that someone is on a PA at a sports event and people are yelling and cheering and that they have music.

Congratulations you've literally described every High School Football game in America.

Just because your life is full of stress and misery right now doesn't mean everyone else has to shut up and be miserable too.

This country does seem to have a knack of screaming into microphones at maximum level, so that it's so loud it's distorted beyond what anyone can understand anyway.
See: supermarkets, protests, any stores grand opening, school prize givings etc.

The microphone's purpose is to amplify your voice, it's not necessary to scream into the thing. They are designed so as the user can avoid screaming.

Damn you all are lucky. I've never had a school blast kpop during sports day, but that would make it even better! Every sports day I've been able to attend (since I work at multiple schools) has been awesome! My former main school would even pull some strings so I could attend sports day. Basically I had duties I needed to do, which was true since the school was small for a city school. I always got to help out for the races and certain events.

I just changed main schools recently, and couldn't attend their sports day as it was on one of only two days that I'm not at the school. Feelsbadman.

Also should mention I'm not good friends with my handler/coteachers there yet, so it wasn't like they would go out of their way to ask my other schools to let me attend.

Surely, you've watched 'The Naked Gun'. You know exactly what to do.
