Ok, so story goes kinda like this:

*skip over italic part if you know nothing about high school mock trial, I'll explain it in sports/music terms in a sec*

So this year in mock trial I'm a witness (been strictly an attorney for the past 4 years) and the second time we've ever went through questioning my coach basically told me a I was terrible, so I just walked out of the room with my attorney to work on questions, fuming mad, for obvious reasons. Is it fair for him to pass final judgment on me even though I've only had a swing at this twice? He's never even sat down to help me with it.

Sports:

(Hypothetically) You play football (american football) and you've been a safety your entire career. One game your couch tells you to sub for QB. Your coach then tells you that you suck donkey dick at being QB and isn't supportive at all. Is it ok for him/her to judge you based on that first performance, even though they've never sat down to help you with it?

Music:

You just got into your schools middle school band and you're just picking up the trumpet. You teacher puts you on the spot and asks you to perform at a level you're not really capable off. You fail, and (s)he yells at you, tells you that you suck, even though you just started. How do you feel?

Ok, I think I explained the basic situation so everyone can understand now. So I know my coach was probably just trying to light a fire under me to get me really going, but WTF, he was a strait up dick to me in front of everyone. Kinda pissed me off. How would you feel if you were put in a situation like the ones above?

Sports: If you've been a 'safty' in football, you need to learn to spell

Music: That has to be the worst teacher ever

You were probably shi*t. It's your own fault.

So I'm a "safty" and my Couch is yelling at me.
Is he yelling at me to start playing football and to stop sitting on him trying to spell the position I want to play?

Is that like salt water taffy? Or is it different?

Hence the quotation marks.
But I do like salt water taffy. Mmmm.

How can you grade a witness? They only say what they see, or lie. Dramatic acting isn't supposed to be in a courtroom...

But sure, people get judged on their first trys lots of times. See the Political Thread

Mock trials basically not "who wins the case" it's "who performs it better". I know, I think it should be on substance and not delivery (like, ya know, in that thing they call "real life") but it's not judged like that

Thanks bro. I was unaware and not making a joke out of the situation.


To TS, your coach probably should have been more patient, but he wasn't. C'est la vie.
