    I plan to do more things like this as an incentive to get more people to
    come to the Meet. It's a year from now, planes fly into Pittsburgh and it's
    about an hour's drive to Wheeling. Make a commitment to go.

    I don't even like that it's in Wheeling - I complain about it every year -
    but I appreciate that someone is willing to make it happen.
    Sure, you paying my plane ticket?

    Yeah, and some of us you know...WORK? I'm actually not allowed to take my vacation any other time of year except late October or early January. Company policy. So as much as I'd like to go to MM, I'll never be able to.

    Same with SDCC and Wonderfest.

    Now, I DO NOT have a problem with attendees being shown something exclusive, but coming on here to rub it in the faces of those who didn't go is pretty lame, and is not gonna bolster your cause.

    I hope you get paid well because that's insane, IMO. I couldn't work anyplace with a policy that restrictive.

    Other than missing out on the stuff I mentioned, I don't really mind. My favorite holiday is Halloween, so that works out perfectly for hitting all the haunted attractions every year...I was even married on Halloween!

    Plus, I'm not a summer guy, so having time off to enjoy the cold weather is okay with me. And yeah, the pay's pretty good too.

    Some places are even worse. My sister couldn't even get a single day off to come to my wedding. Even with advance notice, they wouldn't let her go. We ended up getting married at 8:00 AM so she could be there and still get to work on time.

    For those who really wanted to go to the Meet but couldn't due to work commitments or finances, I'm going to show them a picture of a rare mego prototype never seen before and then post a thread about it to say "haha, you missed it".

    Showing them at the Meet as a reward for going = cool.

    Sharing that news with the rest of us with no intention of sharing the pic = sucks arse
