We all have a friend that does something that makes you cringe or just enrages you. Share stories. I'll start off with a little one.
>Rooming with friend H, L, R, K, and N at con
>H and R have celiac
>No biggie, we make sure they have plenty of gluten free food to eat.
>One night K and I want to order pizza
>R checks out website to see if they offer gluten free
>They don't but he doesn't care, he'll just have something else
>H does care
>H throws a hissy fit
>H cries and accuses us of not caring about her disease and how we just want to eat pizza in front of her and brag that we can
>We don't order pizza
>H feels happy but then starts complaining about having nothing to eat in the room
>There is so much gluten free food for her to eat
>But she doesn't want any of that
>Asks if we can go to the store and buy her something else

What do you think determines how much you spend on merch at a con?
I just got back from a con that I usually kill it at, with 1/4th the money I made on average the three previous years I went. I polled other dealers, who were equally as broke and confused, so I went out and asked attendees why no one was in the dealer's room/AA. Turns out the programming was amazing this year, and no one had the time or energy to shop. A bunch of people told me they often had 2-3 things they wanted to do at the same time.
When I attend cons, I always to carve out at least and hour to shop. Will you forgo even peaking at the dealer's room if the panels/meetups/events are good?
