Ooooooo kinda ass hatty to call me on my shit but Im sure all situations on the Playa are measured by the manner of YOUR experiance. Let me break it down for you. I found a face value ticket in Reno. SHARED a ride into BRC with members of ACLU . The IDIOT whom did not have his own ticket-( nor could charm a ticket from any that may have exsisted for any WORTHY of atending the event)- was GIFTING us a ride into the event.He was responsible for himself.
NOTHING is free pal- his gift was costly..I in hind sight consider the sorce-and IT is my FAULT for knowing such a dip shit and beleiving him to have his shit together enough to buy his OWN TICKET. I tried along with the doods from FREESTYLE to wait with him at will call as long as humanly deemed fair. Almost most of that afternoon- Considering our having the self reliance to dig up our own ticket and camp outfittings- It came time to part ways. He was ejected from Will Call after the graciousness of Perimeter to allowed him to circle like a sad vulture for any hope of a residual MIRACLE ticket for longer than they find usual to tollerate- IT was embarrassing-but Hes a little slow but hes also a selfish leech with no respect for the event- but hey this is current revelation for me, I fell for the" Im too dumb to use the internet, or be self reliant angle ." You know..PITY.
I should of been savy enough to that and I kick myself for not picking up on it and parting myself his company when we arrived. My exhusband lost a limb and often would feign helplessness and hard luck as being a play on manipulating people who felt sad for his condition to gain advantages he could have easily managed on his own with effort like the rest of us.
The question came down as to how to get members of the truck WITH tickets to their camps and his truck back to him. He was asked to vacate the Will call by sundown Monday nite. We had patiently suffered thru his less than earnest attempt to look for a ticket finding him getting stoned and sobbing in various RVs and
It was desided that we would use his truck and that he would do his best to work for a ticket or find a ticket if he could back in Gerlach. I drove him back in to Gerlach- and helped set him up camp with friends of mine who run the stands set up in Gerlach - He was stablized- his plan was to stay after the event and get on striking a particular Camp I have been with forever. I then drove back with the truck to BRC with my LEGAL ticket and proceeded to burn. Arriving to my camp of certain noteriety- I was told No room at the Inn for a matter of planning and dues so I camped with one of 4 other kick ass camps who had yet to Camp plan their heads up their asses and rocked OLD school having more than enough room for me- we parked his truck I set up my camp with my new placement and awaited for either news that he had gotten a ticket and he could have his stupid truck- (keys were on the dash)or it would be returned after Exodus thinned out.
I still had shifts to attend to at my usual camp and Came to find on FRIDAY when I arrived for activitys planned for by my camp- I was givin a message that implied that despite the impossible MY HUSBAND(not ex either) was waiting for me to pick him up at the gate." My husband is rather unavoidable detained - he would NOT be unfortunatly waiting for me at the Gate.
Translated and after much cross checking from my camp and thru other service camp participants also running their shifts - It came down to the jack asshat had bought a braclet from a early departure and tried to lie his way past the brain trust of our famous gate nazi hippy hunting elite- with THE MOST STUPID LIE Im sure they have ever heard-
I was have been traditionally one of few members willing to stay after the party was over and come Monday would be apart in striking this camp for every year I have been a campmate - The Camp - a blended camp of various other services like rangers- dpw- and such..mixed in with a helping of fresh Playa noobs-
Our camp has a respectability and a well earned reputation
SO- I dont just hand over my ticket and dissapear into a crowd of 50000 people as you say
. ..Im also not involved in any stupid shit that would prenessetate me to try and be anything more than interested and co-operative in assisting to any matter Perimeter (ate lunch with them that day) or the Rangers ( can you say 10-7?) or anyone working the infrastructure would involve me in..
Regardless of how long Ive been going- or who I shared a job or art space with in the 80s- or who I know at the LLC or the countless bonds Ive enjoyed with any of the crews- or the book Im writting- ect- I still was a member of the truckload that was driven to BRC in a douchebags truck. I was asked to assist in decyfering the details of what was he had professed to the Gate.. In fact he was so unintelligable due to his speech problems It was generally thought maybe he was telling the truth and I could translate what they didnt understand- His story was so completely full of shit they realized after I spoke with them that he was a SNEAKY HIPPY FUCK.
Asshat said he had a wrestling game with me- I was his woman ( COUGH!COUGHCOUGH!!!) seriously ...? And that I had his truck and his keys and "as a joke" left him behind in Gerlach .
Nothing he said made any sence- and matched any fact - and when confronted by BLM he broke down and confessed..still The rule states to thro the Burner out with the Bath scumb .. Thats it.
SO There Mr.Inspecter Clueseau!!.. Do you need a crime scene reinactment with barbie dolls and sock puppets to re-inact all out for you or can you just fucking take my word for it? - Perhaps you might want to conduct a deeper investigation with BRC CSI and uncover the facts not submitted as evidence for supporting that "something just aint right here" feeling in the pit of your well seasoned e-playa gut. STFU your bustin my balls and I jump for trolls once maybe twice before ....well before Ill probably do it again ..um cause Im silly that way..so ENJOY! Im voting you as ANOTHER ASS HAT known as an Ass Hat After the fact-
What would you have done? I love where this thread might go...
To make matters further for the ass hat awards- The AH texted me thru my FB to tell me how HE - ( after the skillions of veteren burners who got the short end of the ticket at this burn) has been gifted a ticket FOR FREE because he is working for a guy whose son works for the Plug and Play camps as a sound guy and he will give him a ticket for this years burn to come and do set up with him!! Durpdurpdurp! And Cuz this guy gets like 10 plus extra tickets that "THEY" just give him for set up.
Then he asked IF I got a ticket yet and said he wishes me luck cuz its so hard to buy tickets and that hes unconcerned for the luck of others. I said I doubted he would actually get those special tickets.
If he makes it on the Playa..I cant say that his truck wont somehow wind up on Wall Street- double parked...
If you needed the clarification Thats the meat of matter. But now that Ive spelled it out for you in crayons ..let me conclude by saying Im not sure what your getting at . hopefully this will clear up whose burried in Grants Tomb Hmmm?
