Dear Alice: Dance team tryouts were a few days ago and of course my coach hates me and put me on JV again instead of Varsity like I was supposed to be. Everyone else was bumped up except me and two others. Now I have to dance with freshman and be the bad group again. Should I threaten to quit so the coach will put me on Varsity? -Outraged '

Dear Outraged: Definitely don't quit. Your coach will not bump you up to Varsity. The coach just thinks that you would benefit from one more year of JV, and if you quit you won't get to dance or compete at all. Plus your coach will just laugh and let you quit because no coach would bump a quitter up to Varsity. Don't ruin your reputation as a hard worker because of hurt pride. You are way better than that! -Lots of Love, Alice
