I have never had to produce my diploma ever in my life.

Mine was also withheld by my school because I had 'after school time' to make up.

I said "keep it".

We expect the utmost class and professional behavior in our damn ceremonies, thank you. They are OUR ceremonies, after all. That's right, us, the parents. We don't give a rats patootie about whether you want to go or not. We know if you had it your way, you'd just assume forget the pomp and circumstance and have the day off; diploma in the mail.

You're not there for you! You're there for the principals and teachers and parents who are there to celebrate your life's work; your passage into adulthood. Let us applaud your monumental achievement, your coming of age. Let us have our day in the sun!

/yeah, I'm full of shiat

As soon. The phrase is, "you'd just as soon forget the pomp and ceremony". The implication being that forgetting the pomp and ceremony is as preferable as participating.

May I see your diploma please?

It's kind of refreshing to hear a story about this, instead of the typical "my child can do no wrong" kind of parent.

You've gotta be f*cking kidding me? Withholding a diploma for kneeling on one knee real quick? All graduations have goofy guys who jump in the air, throw a frisbee into the crowd or lift up their gown revealing shorts and a Hawaiian shirt or something like that. It's all in fun. No reason to withhold diplomas. And how can a school punish him when he's graduated the school?

Thank God I'm not in school anymore or have any kids. Schools have gone completely nuts. Do you know a lot of schools now have a "school resource officer", aka a cop, in the school at all times when kids are there? If a kid gets in trouble at school these days (for even the smallest offense) they don't get sent to the principal's office, they get arrested or threatened with arrest for disorderly conduct or some other BS charge. Talk back to the teacher? That's an arresting, and maybe a tasing.

My13-year-old nephew was riding on the school bus home and a kid exiting the bus grabbed his hat off his head then threw it back in thru the window. The bus driver said "It's mine now" and my nephew asked for it back and the bus driver said no and that he needed to shut up and sit down or she was calling the school resource officer to meet her at his house and have him arrested for disorderly conduct for not sitting down. This is what schools are like now.

I graduated in the 80s, and my high school made it clear that doing any of the above mentioned things would result in them making it an enormous hassle to get your diploma after the ceremony.

Graduations are the most boring, awful things on planet Earth. Here is your day:

1. Wake up super early
2. Fight for a parking spot in the middle of a converted field somewhere
3. Sit in an auditorium for an hour waiting for it to start, even though you got there on time
4. Listen to introductory speaker ramble for 20 minutes
5. Listen to a second speaker ramble on for 20 minutes, even though they really don't need to be talking
6. Listen to the keynote speaker ramble on for an hour
7. Have the valedictorian give a talk for half an hour
8. Call up 200 people one by one and have them each cross the stage, none of whom are allowed to do anything interesting or different whatsoever
9. Go to the car, then sit in traffic for an hour since everyone leaves at the same time

Why the fark would anybody want to put up with that?

I think eventually my college mailed mine to me, but like hell I was going to the half-assed graduation at the end of winter semester instead of the full one at the end of spring semester. I had to move my ass out of my apartment, anyway.

My parents were proud though, and framed it for me. That was nice.

You forgot about the shiatty musical number sung by people who have no business being up on a stage.

/for college, it was two stupid twats singing a very breathy version of Katy Perry's "Firework"

And that's exactly why I don't show to them. My current school had Speaker Boehner last year. This year is Cardinal Timothy Dolan. Yeah, if graduation didn't suck enough, no way am I siting through that too.

Again though, you don't actually need your physical diploma to be a graduate right? So who gives a fark?

Going to my graduation was a farking chore to everyone but my parents. Most kids who didn't peak at high school felt the same way.

I went to my graduation, and we didn't even get real diplomas. We got a rolled up sheet of paper that said "This isn't your diploma. It's in the mail. Should show up in a week or two," or something like that.

If schools aren't even giving out the diplomas, why bother going to the graduation? It's meaningless.

Organize the students and parents to get together in their own ceremony, they can parade in their gowns, and whoop and tebow it up.

Same here. Odds are this kid was the same way. The documents were already printed and in the mail before the graduation started. It was a total bluff by the administration of the school.

Being from a large school our admins handled it differently. The quote was something like this "We have 2000 graduating kids, if everyone does something stupid and it only takes up 2 seconds we will be there over an hour more then we need to be". This killed everyone's plan to do anything other than shake the had get the diploma holder.

13. Watch your parents and relatives get drunk, and depending on your family, you may or may not have any.
14. Answer the same goddamn questions over and over about your plans, even though everyone already knows them.

I suggest you never procreate because if you think giving up a single day of your life for your child is such a terrible thing you are in for a horrible surprise.

I couldn't stand people I'm friends of friends with on facebook going full retard with the tebow shiat. They're not even football fans let alone Denver fans.

At least that GB^2 shiat doesn't make sense anymore.
