My sister is graduating college this weekend and my parents are beside themselves with excitement. BUT they are also convinced that the CIA will raid your house and throw you in Gitmo if you don't stay for the full four hour ceremony. My mom just spent half an hour trying to convince me that we need to be there by 7:30am to get a good seat, because the whole thing starts at 9am and Shaina gets graduated at 10am and then after that there are THREE MORE HOURS of ceremonies.
I am trying to tell her that I have never heard of anyone sitting through the whole ceremony. In fact, it's my understanding that there is a short break between each school, so that the people who just saw who they came to see can leave and the people who are still waiting can move forward. I have always heard of people popping in to see their kid walk across stage and then bail.
Am I wrong? Or just an a-hole?
