Top Ten Marching Band Problems

Turkeyasylum
These are all problems that are very marching band-esque.

The Top TenXW

1Not being able to go to many competition or many trips due to budget cuts.

Cutting sports funds down and increasing music funds would do us all justice. - Turkeyasylum

2Band uniforms that toast you when it's hot, but provide absolutely no heat when it's cold.

A senior told me the year before my Fresman year, that the ambulance carried away more band members than football players because they kept on passing out because of heat exhaustion.., - AnnaOfArendelle332

3When the band is forced to go two hours without a water break.

The words "water break" are the most soothing things anyone could say to me while marching in drill block for an hour in hot weather. - Turkeyasylum

I always was happy to hear the words "5 minute break@ - AnnaOfArendelle332

4When the band director says "one more time".

One more time? More like four more times. - Turkeyasylum

5When it rains during a football game or competition.

Hide the plumes guys, hide 'em! Don't let 'em get wet!

It's also bad for front ensemble instruments and a nightmare for color guard. At least the tubas and their berets don't have to worry... much. - Turkeyasylum

6Section leaders who either don't give a crap or give too much of a crap.

Agreed last year's senior (Section leader) was nice and helped me but when I missed up he became the devil that is what I like. But this year we have someone who thinks he is the boss of me when he barely knows what he is doing (Such a hypocrite) and some who is nice like the section leader last year. I can't wait when I'm a senior or when he graduates so I don't get bosses around by idiot. - 2storm

I've had to deal with the former of the two before, and trust me, it's not fun. - Turkeyasylum

7When the band director goes on a thirty minute tirade about kids in the band wasting time.
8Annoying band couples.

You know, you don't have to kiss every two seconds! - Turkeyasylum

9Band tans.

You know, those tans you get coming back from band camp. My friend once wore a watch to band camp, which left a tan that didn't cover where he wore his watch! So funny... - Turkeyasylum

10Annoying, loud metronomes.

The Contenders

11Your tire getting blown out and you have to push the percussion instruments
