***BEGIN RANT***

I didn't sign up - tonight is typically a work night for me and I don't sign up for stuff (even weekly M&G's) if I only "HOPE" I can make it. Because my schedule is rigid, but not set in stone, sometimes I just show up and make room for myself. As luck would have it work called at 4:50pm because they could not confirm my patient. Knowing there was limited space and it was last minute, I called Squoddy who said - DNGRMOUSE ~ Monkey 6.9 - was out and I should take his place. Cool for me and cool for the spot not going to waste ~ Only...

Had Weenie not backed out I would have been turned away at the door because the class was supposed to be FULL. Hand-outs, work-books, etc - limited space/full ~ OVER HALF OF YOU PUNKED OUT. WTF? Next time (If there is one) If you can't commit, don't sign up. There were people who showed up early, but were TURNED AWAY because the class was "Full" of No-Shows.

Unless you were in a wreck, stopped for speeding, placed in jail, called to the deathbed of a sick person... What was your EXCUSE for hogging a spot and not showing? You Suck. Buy a calendar. Better yet have someone write it on your forehead with a sharpie so you can see it everytime you pass a mirror. But don't flake, it wasn't a M&G or a weekly ride, it was a FREE CLASS with limited space available. It was money spent by a sponsor to provide free supplies for a class people showed a lot of interest in attending. Bet if you had paid money you would have showed.

Your Loss.

***END RANT***

The hand-outs were cool, the video was okay, but the discussions were priceless and the knowlege shared was invaluable.


AS ALWAYS IT WAS AWESOME!
thats why you are my best frind

I understand that a few people may have had legitimate reasons.

Those of us who attended are giving the no-shows a hard time because it hurts everyone when more than half the people who commit to be at a class don't show up.

A simple courtesy phone call or email ahead of time would have allowed someone else who wanted to attend take your spot. If you contacted them, then great and I am not talking about you.

yea I was responsible enough to show up and I'm coming all the way from Lake Jackson!! I had to experience the highway of death called 45 during rush hour! It was free so how could I miss out. At least let the people know before the event.....

Well that sucks! I forgot all about this and didn't send him an email. I figured I'd take a chance the day of the event, and send him an email anyway. Just as I had expected, the class was full. So no go for me! I would have been more than happy to had filled one of those empty "committed" seats.

But I guess that could be a problem when a class is offered for free, since anyone that registers has no real monetary incentive to attend or not attend.
