View Full Version : Bad Experience With Cutler

Wow deja vu, about 25 years or so ago Herschel Walker was running in a track meet at the Silverdome, where the Lions played...I went specifically to see if I could get his autograph...as he warmed up, I hung over the rail and asked for his autograph...he said later in the day when his races were over he would be at a table on the concourse signing autographs and that he would do it there...well I watched him all day...and when he finally started up to the concourse, I rushed over and asked for his autograph, he said he couldn't and that I had to go to the concourse and wait in line like everyone else...and that's what I did...and he politely signed three different items for me...
That sounds like Herschel Walker.

What if someone else asked Jay for an autograph and wasn't "in line" ...wouldn't that piss you off if you were in line?
Man, I was on a boat at Lake Powell when this thread happened. I'm never going on a vacation again!
I would have been pissed if I was in line and someone pulled that. I would have been the first one to tell the guy (and his son) to wait in line like everyone else. And if the shoe was on the other foot, and it was my son cutting in line, I would have been the first one to tell him to wait in line like everyone else.
Seriously, this has to be one of the most ill-advised threads in the history of threads ("ill-advised" is an attempt at diplomacy - the first term that came to mind was something far less kind). It's called common courtesy, and there isn't enough of it in the world. You are not more important than anyone else. I respect Jay Cutler for having the backbone to tell someone to play by the rules.

Meh. He should have just signed it. It probably would have taken him the same amount of time as telling the kid to get in line.
I don't know why I'm responding to any of this, since the thread is old, in the Butt, and unlikely to be read by anyone.
If a tree falls in the forest, and nobody is there to hear it...
Oh, never mind.
I used to do presentations for a living. I'd speak to anywhere from twenty people to a thousand people, and I'd have a fixed amount of time to finish (usually 90 minutes to three hours, depending on the subject matter). Without exception, someone would raise their hand at the beginning to ask a question. I would tell them, "You know, I would appreciate it if you'd hold your question until the end of the presentation, because I will almost guarantee you it will be answered before then." I learned not to budge on this - because if I did budge, then EVERYONE would start asking questions. And the time I had to present would be spent in a disorganized, disjointed question-and-answer session. And when my time was up, people would walk away feeling like I had wasted their time. I really pissed some people off by putting them off like that, but it was the best thing to do for the majority.
Same thing applies here.
