..A Manager's& Supervisor's Learning Tool' (Ushers)

This questionnaire is a learning tool to assist you in your understanding of the big picture of Supervision in Ushering so that procedures can easily become secondary to focus and enjoyment during the event. Please make multiple copies of the questions so that you can requestion yourself until you feel confident in your understanding. Please remember that flexibility and consciousness are the priority in all situations and that the answers provided will change as we discover new ways to proceed..(end of introduction)

Translation: Learn this stuff but recognize that it might be wrong because we are such bovine-like creatures.

Was that a joke or is this really something they give to ushers?

Unfortunately, this is not a joke. It was mailed to the so-called usher co-ordinators and supervisors prior to one of the Long Beach programs in the mid 90's. There was a husband-wife team at the time with the husband as head of security and the wife in charge of the ushers. Everyone thought they were very conscious. Now, that was a joke!

'Everyone thought they were very conscious'

That must be the new premie-speak. I'm way behind. Back in my day, people were 'very devoted' or sometimes 'in their heads'.

I like the 'very conscious' one. It means absolutely nothing and is just about as watered down and tepid as you can get.

premiedom is the most buzzword laden place I have ever been. I am very conscious too.

the glascow coma scale....
Message:
I say that they all seem to display signs of minor head injury because none of them could get the full 5 points on the verbal response. Some, like our long lost Keith, are totally incomprehensible, others, like Melbourne et al, would get three or four points but never 5, confused conversation but able to answer questions occaisionally but mostly innappropriate responses with discernable words.
