If you have appointments, be on time for them, or even early. If you are running late - call. If you can’t make it - call. It wastes people’s time and often messes up other people’s appointments/schedules. We all know shot happens, often out of your control, but 30 mins late for an appt you scheduled with no call… Not cool
It’s really fucking annoying when someone says “don’t take it personally” and you do. I at least say to others, “it’s hard not to take it personally, but here are reasons you shouldn’t…”
I just want to say,”fuck it,I’m over this shit”, and leave for the day and go watch shit on my dvr and hang out in my room
Yes, I shouldn’t take it personally,but ya know what, I do, it feels like my work/time isn’t as valued. I got told maybe I should “mind” a little bit more and then I won’t get asked to do bullshit stuff. Oh yes, that’s a good work strategy, be difficult and refuse to do stuff….
This is too bad. Part of what the person said, I didn’t really follow. But, umm, famous people in the end are just that, PEOPLE. They are allowed to go to conventions and when they are done with any obligations, enjoy themselves. They are allowed to have friends go to these cons and support them (maybe this is what that person meant by entourage). And if they want to take pictures with people in costumes… that’s up to them, just like any of the rest of us can ask someone in a costume, “hey can I take a picture/be in a picture with you/hang out?”. They don’t owe you anything and they can say no if they want. If you’re in the autograph line and you paid for said autograph and a celebrity refused to sign your approved item, that would be one thing, but getting upset when you approach them on their own time and they decline isn’t right. Yes, it might bum you out a bit, of course when we see someone we like, we want to say hi, have a moment whatever, but that other person doesn’t owe that to you just because they are famous. You wouldn’t expect that if you went up to a random cosplayer and asked for a photo and they turned you down because they were busy, or eating or tired, or with friends - would you call them a dick and say they owed it to you? It’s too bad, because Wil does seem like a nice guy, and most accounts i’ve read, he does try to interact with is fans as much as possible. People suck
This person is on some kind of jihad to prove that the “don’t be a dick” guy is actually a dick, and in the process completely dehumanizes me, makes a ton of assumptions about what’s really going on inside my head that support her idea that I’m a person with an enourage, and basically makes me never want to go to a con or anything like it again, because nothing is ever good enough.
