Argument Against Open Campus Lunch Policy

1459 words - 6 pages

One day, Jennifer and her two best friends, all of whom were juniors, took advantage of the open lunch policy and went out to lunch in her Toyota Camry. Since all of them loved Japanese food, they decided to go to Tempura House, which was only two minutes away from their school, Loyal High School. When the students ordered their meal, Jennifer, pretending to be over twenty-one, used her sister's driver's license to get Japanese beer, or sake. Although the owner of the restaurant thought that Jennifer and her friends looked young, he suspected nothing. Believing that school hadn't ended yet and that Jennifer was over twenty-one, the owner then brought the eager students their food and sake. After many cups of that strong liquor, Jennifer discovered that lunch was almost over and they were going to be late to Physics. Being drunk and confused, the three of them dashed out of the restaurant, jumped into Jennifer's Camry, and drove way past the speeding limit. Much to everyone's disappointment, as Jennifer tried to cross the railroad track, the gates of the track went down and signals warned drivers that a train was coming. Jennifer, whose mind was slumbered by the liquor, believed that she could cross the track before the train came. Unfortunately, she did not make it in time. The train hit the Camry and sent Jennifer and her friends flying out into the air. Sadly, none of them survived. This unfortunate and rather gruesome incident leads me to believe that open campus lunch policy causes disruption among people.Even though this opportunity presents students with feelings of independence, open campus lunch policy worsens the public's traffic situations. Specifically, the vast number of students going out to lunch causes a wide range of traffic issues. Take the case of Charles, a responsible yet impatient senior from Esperanza High School. One day, after Charles finishes his meal at In-n'-Out, Charles realizes that he's going to be late to his math class. Charles then tries to drive through the enormous number of cars, all of whom are students under the same situation as Charles. Feeling extremely aggravated, Charles ignores the traffic rules and goes twenty miles per hour over the speed limit, driving on the empty lane of the opposite direction. Unfortunately for Charles, a cop stops him and gives the foolish lawbreaker a big, fat speeding ticket for going way over the speed limit and driving on the wrong side of the road. Much to Charles' dismay, his aggravated parents discontinue his weekly allowance and ground him for half a year. A similar example of a student troubled by the great number of cars is the case of Amy. Amy, competitive and impatient by nature, has always wanted to be the first of everything. Consequently, she hates to wait in line. But with the huge number of students going out to lunch, getting held up in traffic and then waiting in a long line to order one's food is very common. To solve this problem, Amy decides that she would...
