Doud Chronicles: Power Trip Essay, Research Paper
The story Disney?s Doug Chronicles Power Trip is about Doug and his problems
at school. Doug?s problem was that Vice Principle Bone chose Doug to be the hall
monitor. Doug was surprised because he was hand-picked from all the other students. At
first Doug thought that it would be dorky, he put on the orange belt but as he was walking
to class all the other students were walking the opposite direction, Doug saw he friend,
Skeeter. Doug asked ?whats going on??
?Principle White Announced that there was going to be an assembly in the
auditorium,? Skeeter said. The assembly was about a police man from the city, Doug saw
how he looked in the uniform and he started day dreaming about him being hall monitor
and how he can impress Patti (Doug has a crush on Patti).
On Tuesday Doug was doing his regular routine of being the hall monitor, Doug
saw Roger the school bully, walking by as the tardy bell rang. Since Doug was new he let
him slide and just give him a warning, the other kids in the classroom were amazed that
Doug actually stud up to Roger.
On Wednesday Doug felt he had more power. A student went up to Doug
congratulated him.As Doug was going back to class he saw Roger and his gang in the
hall Doug pointed at the clock and Roger left disappointed.
On Thursday, Doug was getting a little carried away, he was standing on a
stepladder with a megaphone in his hand barking orders. Doug saw Patti running but he
just asked ?would you please slow down?? Skeeter walked up to Doug, Skeeter started
talking but it seemed that nobody was home. Skeeter walked away mumbling disapoitedly.
When Doug went home he still felt like he was in control, he started telling everyone
what and what not to do, everyone was angry at Doug.
Finally on Friday morning Doug once again caught Patti running, Doug was
nervous of what to do, he tried not look at her eyes as he was giving her a detention slip.
Patti was undoubtedly upset. Doug really felt bad and he decided to wait for her before
she got to detention but unexpectedly it was Vice Principle Bone to arrive first, Doug
looking at his feet told Bone that he was retiring from hall monitor. Patti overheard the
conversation, Doug apologized to Patti about giving her detention and he admitted about
getting a little carried away. Patti replied by saying ? Doug you used a megaphone in a
twenty feet hallway!? Doug invited her to get ice creme after school when she was done
with her detention. Patti agreed and said ? You know, you did look kind of cute in your
little orange sash.? Doug smiled, embarrassed. Doug waited for Patti was glad to retire.
I think the moral to this story is basically don?t get carried away with things that
make you popular because you might up ending losing your first and real friends
