E3 is always better when the booth babe is crying.Mercanary57 said:AAAAAaaaaaaaand this is why people are stupid.
Oh booth babes/strippers, now I know why you feel dead inside!
Yeah, I mean, it's not like they would EXPECT to get guys fawning over them, what with them wearing very little, being hired out by modelling agencies and standing around in nerd central, is it? lol...SadisticDarkling said:haha oh how desperate some can be xD
I know most Booth babes are far too skinny for my tastesSadisticDarkling said:haha oh how desperate some can be xD
Don't forget the ongoing drama behind the counter. When you do go out of your way for people and they don't tip. Managers being pissy anyway, probably because they got dumped the day before. It's a lot of grief to deal with, and many states let restaurants rip you off blind because "half your wage is gratuity."The_dududf said:.....They have it easier. The REAL abuse would have to be female waiters. That has to be a shitty job.
For the waiters in general you get blamed if the food's bad, or if the food takes a while. You're mainly the blame person. Then throw in the female body, and you have potential for people who've had too much to drink flirting, or acting sexually towards you. All the while you have to smile, ignore cramps brought on by standing all day and carrying heavy stuff. If you act reasonably angered back to the person, you don't get tipped, and the manager would be pissy.(That being said, guys still have it rough it's just they don't have to worry about the sexual part. That's my take on it anyways.
Low Key said:It's a freakin' video game convention! Seriously, what do they expect? I'd venture to guess there are plenty of guys who attend those sort of things and have had limited exposure to the opposite sex, let alone girls that are very attractive.
Plus, the bad experiences always outshine the good ones. I don't know how many people attend CES or other conventions, but I can only assume there were at least several hundred (possibly thousand?) guys who respected the ladies' privacy, job, body, etc. and didn't bother them beyond a picture, compared to the few who do what the article describes.

mattman106 said:Ah boo hoo. You knew the job when you took it. Good money to stand around looking pretty and occasionally having someone grope you? Seems a good deal, plenty of worse jobs in the world. Send one of these lasses on a bomb disposal course and they'd be begging to work at CES and be groped :/
Jobs that deal with service, be it booth babe or server or the like, are guaranteed to come with crap. But the alternative is not as pleasant to think about. Just because you have to endure it, doesn't mean you can't vent about it.Sylryeth said:Whelp, thats what they should expect, since theyre standing around, scantily clad, and that theyre, most of the time, at a show for nerds. And if not nerds, probably either horny adrenaline-pumped car people, or people who watch porn (see: Adult Expo).
Going by the rounded shape and the headlights (yes, I know how bad that sounds considering the context of the thread), I'm guessing a 350z.Frankydee said:I'll think I'll take what's behind her instead.
[small]That's a GTR right? kindah hard to tell from that angle.[/small]
I never said nor implied they couldn't vent. I just don't think this story is newsworthy, so that's why I wrote what I did. I'd imagine the same thing would happen if someone interviewed me about the bullshit I have to put up with at my job.samsonguy920 said:snip
