So yeah, went to the con, sold out they told me, come back at 1:30, then 2:00, then 2:40, finally went home writing it off as a loss and fuming, still pissed about it.
Guess I should be happy I only paid 11 in bus fair compared to the 30 to 40 it would have taken had I gone by car. Then again, I hate wasting any money especially given my current situation. That and the 4 hour round trip for nothing.
Sorry, just felt angry enough about this to start a thread.
