There was only one concert that I waited in line overnight and that was Morrissey’s 1989 concert at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre. After waiting 10 hours in front of Tower Records, a girl I hated from my high school cut in front of us minutes before the ticketbooth opened and being the introverted girl I was back then I said nothing. I just seethed in anger as I watched her get a ticket before me. Pure anger filled my very soul and I just didn’t have the backbone to say anything about it.
I would have to say if that girl tried that now and it was a line for a PS3 instead of a man who some would say has made a career out of whining, somebody would get slapped. Now I’m not saying that I’m one of the crazies waiting in line 9 days before its released. That’s just insane…or wickedly smart (imagine the markup these guys can add to their consoles on eBay). I’m just saying that I’m 33 years old now and with a few verbal fights under my belt it just wouldn’t happen now.
