I may have been "that guy" at Connecticonn. In my defense that weekend was the beginning of the custody battle that led to my daughter living with me.
One dude at a relatively small and isolated campus of 12,000 people was unavoidable. One single, solitary dude.
Yes, there's some irony in this post. ;-)
... the "that guy" type people out there aren't typically malicious, they're just clueless and often not really at fault. Shit sucks for them.
It didn't help that you could never completely avoided because they would come to RWAG or Anime club.
Yes, there's some irony in this post. ;-)You are a thousand steps behind the "that guy" I am describing. Truly. He was a pioneer of being "that guy."
I think someone earlier in the thread thread said it best: If you think you're a That Guy, you're probably not. While it's possible, I think one of the key factors of being a That Guy is a complete lack of self-awareness, as that's a factor that tells you when to back off or press forward.
Also... I never had experiences with having to physically avoid a person since middle school. That you guys had to do that in college... is... well... odd to me.
I sort of know that I am That Guy, in that I do not mesh well with others. I try to make up for it by doing as many cool things as possible, so if people don't like me, they might like something I do. It's probably why I run games more than I play them.
Yeah. I'm 99% certain I was "that guy" at Paxes. :-/
