Yeah, No Seriously. Where the F%&# Are My Tickets?
Greetings Evil Geeks. I wish I could report that all is well here on Asteroid G, but we’ve been simmering up a big ass batch of not well for the past few days. We’re only two weeks away from the Nerd-pocalypse that is the New York Comic Con, but instead of rejoicing in the glow of the impending amazingness, we’re furiously pacing the halls of the Evil Geek Lair repeatedly asking ourselves one question: WHERE IN THE BLOODY FUCKING HELL ARE OUR TICKETS!!!!!
I realize that the con people are trying to manage a gargantuan amount of ticket orders, but give me a freaking break here! I ordered these tickets back in June, specifically just to make sure that we were ensured access to the con. I wanted this problem squared away, I wanted to not have to worry about it, it SHOULD be an afterthought right now, but here we are. We’re two weeks away from the show and our Evil Ticket Vault is despairingly empty. What the holy hell NYCC? What’s the point of having people order so far in advance, but making us sweat it out on the ass end of the waiting period? You certainly didn’t have a problem charging our credit card for those tickets, why don’t I have them in my hand by now?!?!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to throw shade at the hardworking folks who bust their asses to assemble this amazing experience every year, but I’m starting to get a little concerned. I wish I was able to say that this is the first time the Brotherhood has experienced Con Ticket Related Anxiety, but it isn’t. Last year, if you had coughed up the extra 30 bones to get a ticket to the recording of “Jay & Silent Bob Get Old” with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, it was never really made clear to you that they weren’t going to mail you the actual tickets for the event, but instead you had to wait in line at the show and pick them up there. After we were getting close to the show date and I still was without the tickets, I called their customer service department and was actually told that they were mailing the tickets to us soon, which was an outright lie. I called them up again they day before the show and finally was told how it was all going down. I’m worried I”m currently trapped in the middle of yet another customer service nightmare involving the con again.
I’m trying to stay positive until I know for sure that something is wrong, but signs are pointing to trouble. Our Evil Geek Spies have reported that others have already received their tickets, so we’re officially upping our readiness alert to Defcon 4. Prove me wrong NYCC. Please prove me wrong. Ok, anger vented, rage subsiding, urge to smash vanishing… Oh look, the Green Lantern movie is on. Anger rising, rage returning…
EVIL GEEKS SMASH!!!
