Yeah, I heard about that, too. I thought they were just punished the one night. My son said they weren't sure if it was for real or just part of the hell week mind games that the rdc's play. Oh well. . . . sounds like they've moved on now. Been a busy week for them.
Yes, my son also wrote about the bathroom incident and the extra PT. Figured it was part of the, "mind games." Not too worried about it.
Also, his girlfriend got a letter yesterday saying they had their promised phone calls taken away because they got into trouble. (I don't know why). They had to stay up late writing the instructions over and over again.
Don't worry, calls or no calls, letters or no letters -- we will all be done with this stage soon!
Thanks Jen & Margaret. As my son described the workouts... he couldn't see how the group would survive them if they had to do them every night for 2 hours. He said one SR had a seizure from the workout, but appeared fine the next morning. My son works out frequently, and so he felt he could survive the extra workouts, but he worried about his fellow SRs... I did wonder if really there was no offense & it was a planned lesson, so to speak. Yes, we are getting near the end. I know these exercises will make them stronger in the long run. I hope perhaps I see a letter today. Am anxious to hear what he has to say. Thanks again.
