Rafael: Go away and stop following us. Our club is for boys only.
Hannah: But I want to join.[audio:http://libsyn.com/media/eslpod/ESLPod753.mp3|titles=ESL Podcast – Enduring Hazing]
Rafael: You do, huh? Did you know that to join our club, you have to go through an initiation?
Hannah: Okay, I’ll do that. What do I have to do?
Rafael: You have to endure weeks of hazing. We’ll be putting you through your paces to make sure you’re club material.
Hannah: I’m willing to do that. I can do anything you boys can do. Watch me!
Rafael: I’m not so sure. If you want to be one of the guys, you’ll have to do everything we tell you to do, even if you don’t want to.
Rafael: Yeah, everything. If we tell you to eat dirt, you have to eat dirt. If we tell you to stand outside in the rain, you have to do that, too. Get the picture?
Hannah: Yeah, I’ve got the picture.
Rafael: If we tell you to pull a prank, you have to do it. If we tell you to streak, you have to do that, too.
Hannah: You can’t be serious. That really crosses the line.
Rafael: We decide what crosses the line and what doesn’t. See? I knew you’d be too chicken to join our club.
Hannah: You’re right. I don’t want to join any club where the members are stupid enough to do all of those things. I’m starting my own club – one where you don’t have to humiliate yourself to get in.
Rafael: Suit yourself. I knew you weren’t club material.
Hannah: Thank goodness for that!
