And I’m still calling the hatches, gears.
Bag and tag is gone and I’m still saying “ship day.”
Champs has moved two times and split once and I’m still talking about “qualifying to go to Atlanta.”
FIRST changed their website but I still type usfirst.org instead of firstinspires.org.
“Drivers, behind the line”
Calling wrenches spanners, and spanners as wrenches. Add adjustable wrench to the mix, and it confuses rookies.
3…2…1… power UP!
The Cargo is a Cube…I know different shapes, but go figure.

I’m shocked nobody has mentioned “Nationals” yet
A tech teacher ignorant to the idea of first: Did you go to Nationals?
Me:… mental breakdown its not nationals. It’s Worlds. And no. We didnt qualify.
Oh, you mean the hatch panels?
FIRST better make some more obvious names for Infinite Recharge. The item that robots interact with needs to have a short, one-word name, and be easily relatable to the shape.
We called the cube mech a gear mech all last year, too. At some point in the build season I just called everything a “thing” and pointed at it, usually after mumbling for 5-10 seconds.
