    Good Friends Push You

    | London, England, UK | Bad Behavior, Physical

    (I am learning to drum in a drum group, and a friend and I are the only ones learning a certain kind of drum. We’re a little lacklustre.)

    Tutor: “Not good enough! Push yourselves! [My Name], [Friend], push yourselves!”

    (My friend turns towards me and pushes me.)

    Friend: “Done!”

    Me: “He said push yourself, not push me…”

    Classic Violence

    | Blacksburg, VA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Musical Mayhem

    (I overhear this after dropping my son off at cello lessons.)

    Teacher: *to two children* “Violins are NOT weapons!”

    And Drums For A Comedic Rimshot

    , | Scotland, UK | Musical Mayhem, Rude & Risque, Students, Teachers

    (We’re being taught guitar in my first year music class. During the class, one of the strings breaks on my guitar. I am going to get another guitar from the store cupboard.)

    Teacher: *shouting* “Oh, you’ve left your G string behind!”

    Me: “Aren’t guitarists used to finding those lying around stage?”
