Grrr.... some people really suck.

So, I had to wander on over to my sister's house for some paperwork and I ended up coming home with an internal zip drive (it was an extra and I got it in exchange for a monitor I lent her a while ago) and a new assignment.

My niece is having problems with the dipshit that teaches music at her high school (which happens to be my old high school). This guy has given her a fair bit of trouble in the last year, and my sister met with him and the assistant principals once already in the hopes of resolving this situation but apparently that didn't work. See, the asshole was in charge of getting paperwork done for the U.I.L. band competition. Last week, he informed my niece at the last minute that he hadn't gotten the music for her solo so she wasn't going to be able to compete. She'd been practicing for a few months and he barely came up with that crap right now? What a fucker. Then on Saturday my niece performed in a trio and it turned out that her teacher had submitted the wrong music so they waited around for 2 hours until they found out that they were disqualified when the results were posted.

Now, I'm all for being patient and giving people the benefit of the doubt, but if it were me, and a student had complained and her parents had come in etc... I would make damn sure that no "mistakes" popped up in anything that had to do with her. At least I would if I thought that I might get in trouble. What most bugs me about this guy is that I'm pretty sure he's thinking that no one is going to really make a stink about this and he's almost right. I don't like butting into my niece's stuff if I can help it, but honestly, I find it offensive that someone would sign up to be a coach for an extracurricular activity and then do stuff like this for (what seem to be blatantly) personal reasons. From what I heard my niece's trio was good enough (and there was little enough competition) that it could have probably made it to state and it was the only group that had a decent shot. More to the point none of the other teams made it and hers did a really good job and they didn't even get judged. Sounds at least a bit unfair.

So, tomorrow, I'm probably going to meander on down to ye olde high school to talk to the admins about ripping him a new orifice of some sort. I don't like it when random fuck-ups mess with my family. This makes Victor very unhappy.

who's the band director now?

gonna swing by to see Cain?
Some Mr. Mata person.

I might. It depends on what my schedule is like tomorrow. I have a lot of random stuff to deal with so it's going to be one of those days. If I have time I might try to swing by around lunch time-ish and see what the current Hgh-Q team is like.

I have a lot of pissed off energy pent up....

Want me to kick his ass?

My band director in high school was an ass, but he got stuff done... almost to the point that you were on his bad list if you didn't try out. Good luck with this.

Re: I have a lot of pissed off energy pent up....

Heh, thanks for the offer. I might take you up on it, but first I wanted to intimidate errr convince his superiors into taking some sort of positive punishment action to make sure that he doesn't do something this stupid again.
what a jerk! I know how you feel, though...when someone messes with my family...I could hurt them...especially for my daughter.
Yeah, messing with the family is a big no-no.

I find it hard to believe that he would do something that looks so blatantly retaliatory. I kind of just want to walk up to him in class, smack him upside the head and just ask him: "What where you thinking? Are you really that stupid?"

It's just amazing how bad some of this stuff has gotten in the last few years. I remember when folks would teach stuff like that because they genuinely liked working with students and they wanted them to do as good as possible etc... I mean, this guy must feel like such a champ, he's a grown up and he's taking out his frustrations on a 17 year old kid. Loser doesn't begin to describe him.
