As I mentioned in another post, I did commencement today. The same thing happens every single time, to where I should be accustomed to it, but I'm not and I still get pissed off. Sometimes when a person's name gets called, his or her friends and family "hoot and holler." That's not the worst thing in the world, of course, even though they are asked not to do it. But sometimes they keep "hooting and hollering" to where they drown out the name of the next person. I teach at a school with a lot of first generation college students. For a lot of them and their families, graduation is a really big deal, and so it pisses me off when others are so inconsiderate.
