Wait, what are “percussionists that get offended by being called a drummer” supposed to do if this happens in a show?

NO BUT THIS STILL DOESN’T ANSWER THE QUESTION WHAT DO THE STICK TAPPY PEOPLE DO WHEN BIG NOISE MAKER FALL DURING NOISE SHOW?????
One time in indoor my band director was trying to get us to embrace the emotion of the song and end it with a bang he was like ‘Get mad! This song is about a couple fighting! Pit, smack the crap out of those cymbals! Get mad! Look mad! FEEL MAD! Don’t be afraid to hit the cymbal. Hit it hard, you aren’t going to hurt it.’
Little did he know the past few weeks had been really bad for me and I decided, fuck yeah stress relief. So we played through the song and progressively got more and more pissed off and he was like ‘Yeah! That’s right! Show them anger!’ and we get to the cymbal crash and
That was the most godawful noise I have ever heard in my life. Why? I cracked the cymbal. It was only about 3/4th of an inch long, but it cracked clean through the cymbal. With a marimba mallet.
My director just kind of stood there for a second and went ‘Ok, don’t hit the cymbal that hard.’
