Like a lot of fellow fans, I have just returned from Celebration V. I went because I love the Star Wars genre, and everything that has to do with it. I have followed Star Wars since the first screening of Episode 4 in 1977. I noticed one thing about my fellow fans--the vast, vast majority of the people I met that enjoyed Star Wars were always kind, generous, considerate and were always ready to talk to a fellow fan. I found this to be true throughout the years... ...until now. I will reference the VIP experience thread on this forum. Folks, I will say, without reservation, that I read indications of some of the most selfish and elitist attitudes I have ever experienced. What do I mean? 1. The people who take great pride in barging in the lines for celebrity autographs and photographs. 2. Barging in lines to panels and other large events. 3. I did not think that getting "Knight" and "Master" privileges allowed such rude behavior. 4. Rude and insensitive behavior toward volunteers and Security personnel who were staffing these events. These people--especially the volunteers--worked long and hard hours, going without sleep and food to try to make this event as pleasureable as possible--and I applaud their efforts. These people are also given specific instructions concerning the running of the events and the lines going to those events. 5. Just because you have a VIP pass, it does not mean that you should bully these volunteers--or anyone else who happens to be in your area. You make yourself look really immature, selfish and inconsiderate. If the VIP pass does allow you access to a line, then show some manners. Saying "thanks" or "excuse me" and "please" makes people behave toward you in a courteous manner. Barging in and being loud makes you look like a dolt. Whenever people see you acting like this, they will pass the word around about you, and you may not appreciate what you hear. Bottom line--purchasing those passes does not give anyone the right to act like a bully. Remember, there are thousands of other fans who may have saved and scrimped to attend a Star Wars Celebration. Put yourself in their place. Edit: Sorry, but as you've said, there is another VIP thread already. Try to keep everything in a single thread.
