One of the ladies I work with got a call tonight that needed to be transferred to 911. It was for a cheerleader who broke her foot. I looked at her and asked, "you didn't laugh on the phone, did you?" which actually made her laugh. She never laughs.
It's official: Cheerleaders are almost universally loathed. (no offense, Janette! lol)
And so, we got to wondering how this young lady happened to break her foot at 1:30 in the morning at her hotel. Possibly by cheering? Funny... I thought that the finals of the competition ended tonight around 11 pm. Maybe she should've been in bed. Or participating in a nice quiet activity instead of doing back handsprings on the cement.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not glad that she got hurt. I don't wish pain and suffering on anyone. I'm not even saying that she got what she deserved. Maybe she fell out of bed and that's how she broke her foot.
I am, however, going to say flat-out that cheer chaperones are lacking in common sense. The chaperone in the room had one of the other children to call 911 rather than calling herself. Because a child is definitely the one most likely to be able to give the dispatcher the information needed during the call. Right?
