I just don't get either when these people complain they're broke when they attend so many cons, one would think the travel expenses would be a consideration on their budget.
I never got this either. But it seems to be a trend with alot of people. ALWAYS complaining that they have no money, yet they're just blowing it left and right going to one con after another. ^^;
Lack of priorities.
Now don't get me wrong, it's fun to meet up with people that have similar interests but con life != real life, the reason you might get jaded with the people around you in current situations is because you're dealing with them constantly.
Some people are jerks at first meet, some people turn into them the longer you actually hang out with them. So I can't consider a meet up a total determining factor, though it does help give you a better judge of other people's characters.
