It's getting to the point that I can't stand to attend public functions because there's bound to be people there.
And most people suck.
Today I attended a conference with other people and came very close to having to kill them all. It started with the dumbass who came in late then sat next to me eating an apple. I didn't pay good money to attend this shit so I could listen to an asshole chomp an apple while somebody is speaking. Then I nearly had to kill the two idiots behind me who were talking the entire time. And don't get me started on the bitch wearing fifty bracelets who was clanking and jingling every time she moved... which was often, because she was taking notes and flipping her hair every ten seconds.
It's this kind of inconsiderate bullshit that causes me to become homicidal. People PAY to attend conferences so they can learn stuff. But you can't learn stuff when you can't hear anything because people won't shut the fuck up and stop being a distraction.
It makes me want to hold my own conferences.
With an attendance of just one person... ME!
Unfortunately, the fee to attend such a conference would be a lot more money than I got.
Psycho Cat sez...
The good news is that once I blow this popsicle stand, I'm off to my sister's house.
It's party time.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
The bitch with the jangling bracelets reminds me of a scene from the original “Auntie Mame” with Rosalind Russell.
A great movie, IMHO.
Oh noz… Blogography can haz becum a cat blog!
I have this overwhelming urge to send you my bank account number, SSN and mother’s maiden name.
PSYCHO CAT! I IZ UNDER UR CONTROLZ!
I feel your pain as the same thing happened to me many years ago when I paid to attend Nikon Digital Photography School. Idiot eating an apple was there too! That bastard. It’s people like him that keep me from going to most public events and the reason why I rarely see a movie within two weeks of opening, and when I do, it’s the first showing of the day @ 11 am. Even then there’s some dickweed making too much noise which leads me to concur that most people are douchebags. Present company excluded. 🙂
That is sooooo annoying. It happens to me every time too. I have found myself in situations like this too many times. It’s even harder when you are running the conference because you don’t want to be rude to the attendees.
Having said this, I feel the same way about being around people lately too. I thought I was just PMSing but since I’m not alone (and I doubt we’ve managed to sync our cycles from such a distance), I’ll put the blame where it belongs: On them and their jingling bracelets.
I hate conferences too for similar reasons but then I always have trouble staying awake, I have to the Ipcress File thing and jab nails into my hands!
psycho kitty, que est que c’est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Oh, dear, hahahahahaha at “Today I attended a conference with other people and came very close to having to kill them all.” Funny.
Maybe you should attend a conference on how to pay better attention to things you care about.
And maybe this would help you focus on happier things.
that’s probably the cause of many of your
“episodes” where you feel homicidal. Know what I mean?
