What was your worst hotel or roommate experience?I went to some hick con in shithole Arkansas, where the motel accused our token black friend of trying to steal the continental breakfast. At Momocon, I tried to go back to the room for a nap and found my friend and his wife banging a Toga cosplayer.
My friend didn't finish his cosplay in time and we had to finish it in the Hotel. (we had a group cosplay) That alone would have been fine but he just kept whining and procrastinating so I ended up having to hand sew a big peace of his costume. + I was too hungover to eat the Continental breakfast so it was an extra succy con.
Friend proceeded to fuck her girlfriend in the bed next to mine trying to pretend they weren't. Most of the con the both of them just stayed in the hotel room. This ended up not being so bad because I ended up making some friends there wandering around by myself.
Back in my poorfag days, there was a rando that was in our room because we needed to bring the cost down and he ended up bringing in some underage kid to the room and gave him alcohol
My friend told me this story of how she shared a room with this girl she knew from Scotland at a con once. Scotland girl shat in the bed, didnt flush the (shared) toilet and refused to use deodorant for the con until the last day, so the entire bed reeked of sweat and shit.
My worst hotel experiece was sharing a room with my unrequited crush, as she got dressed for the con and bed in front of me because "she trusts me enough to see her underwear", yet i had to sit there and listen as she gushed about her crush all night and it broke my heart.
>>10507817I've got two but they go together.Con 1: 15-16 years old. Dad has connections with Marriott. Negotiated for us to stay in the presidential suite with just a couple of close friends. Rules are simple- no noise, no parties, and because we are 15 year old girls, no boys in the room. My mom will be checking on us once a day, but she trusts me. Its supposed to be chill. I come back in the evening and not only has my "friend" invited her boyfriend, who was not invited, into the room- they are making out on one of the king sized beds. My mom walked in with me. Guess who got yelled at? I tried to kick that boy out six or seven times over the course of the weekend and told him he was not invited, and he absolutely could not stay the night. He kept inviting his own friends over as well. His girlfriend refused to kick him out and I ended up getting bitched at for it, and nearly lost my hotel benefits. Con 2:Ten years later, hotel issues with same friend. Negotiate for presidential suite at the Ritz. This time its a gift directly from the hotel manager, who is a family friend. I write him a long thank you letter and instruct everyone to bring a small gift- like a box of cookies or maple syrup or a jar of honey or some shit. Same friend doesn't bring a gift. Complains about having to sign the card. Has free access all day to the concierge lounge but is afraid to go alone and cries/goes hungry when no one has time to go with her. Forgets to reserve tickets to a movie premiere, then gets mad that we go without her. Tries to wear flip flops and cargo pants to a 5 star restaurant. Texts her (new) boyfriend the whole weekend even though this is a girls trip. Gets lost in the convention center bathroom because she walked out without us, screams at us for abandoning her (we were all still in the bathroom and never left), and cries herself to sleep that night when I call her out. We are not friends anymore.
A guy in our room clogged the toilet, so we just kept shitting all weekend until the pot was 100% full.
>>10510111I want some hotel hookups
>>10510111The ritz is so nice!!Its fun being rich :) I like staying in luxury hotels and taking a relaxed approach to cons as a mini vacation its more fun in my older age : 27 and 11 months
>>10507817I held a room party at otakon with a few tripfags back in, I wanna say 2013? One of them stayed in the bathroom when we all left. One of the girls had to go back to the room to get her bag and found the bathroom guy jerking off in the room. It was not his room and needless to say I never spoke to him again.
first out-of-state con, I roomed with randos at Acen around 2010one of their friends came in at midnight with a fucking trumpet
>>10511029Vapid cunt. The wall is incoming
>>10511195tbf that's kinda funny
>>10510026Either go for it or leave, there is no happiness to be found in limbo
Friend brought a random guy to the room for the day, I caught him later sniffing my wig and bath towel, "because I dressed up as his waifu". The final straw was when he got up in the middle of the night, walked over to my bed side and just stood over me for a good 20 mins.My friend tried to defend him saying that he is autistic and then turns and says on social media that I bully disabled people.I room myself ever since
>>10510111>Con 1: wahhh rich white girl "problems">Con 2: wahhh more rich white girl "problems"Your ex-friend can do better.
>>10512431Naryt but their reply was valid. Good job bringing race into it tho. Probably a dumb American.
>>10511195That sucks. This is kind of related since it's also someone being obnoxious as fuck at ACen.I remember the year this dude was blasting his fucking boombox on my floor in the Hyatt and woke up a bunch of flight attendants and pilots.
>>10507817>trying to steal the continental breakfastHow the fuck do you "steal" coffee and a stale donut? The most desperate hoodrat couldn't be bothered to sneak into a hotel for such a shitty reward. What cheap fucking hillbillies.
>>10507817We were with 3 friends and a boyfriend of one of us. The hotel was very very cheap first of all so of course we booked it, cheap bitches we are. It was very hard to get in there and we found out that it was an old industrial small hall thingy with only one suite. The stairs were horrible and it was overall very creepy. Also after we got back from the con, it was like 10pm so not that late, we got phonecall from the owner that 'it was way too loud and we should be asleep by now'. Turned out that the owners lived in the lobby area. We then spoke in almost whispers and the owner called us again that she's gonna call the police if we're not quiet. It was odd lol. Never again.Sorry if it's all over the place, broken english and all that.
>>10513198Oh forgot to add, there was a minion plushie and my friends poured red wine all over it. RIP red wine and minion plushie. I was the one who booked the place so i had to pay for that too.
I shared this story some time ago, but the worst hotel experience my group had was luckily not mine. I used to book 3 rooms for my cosplay group that was split into three rooms: guys girls and couples. I usually put it to where the girls and couples rooms were next to each other but the guys room was elsewhere. Since the guys would often stay up way too late drinking we would use their room as the party room then go back to our rooms to sleep.To try to make the story short, certain people in the guys room complained about my rules. Namely no drugs, no friends sleeping on the floor, security deposit in advance and you can have it back after the con. So I tried to make things easy on them and had them book their own room.After they had to book their own room, the person who was booking didn't have a credit card that could cover the security deposit on arrival. I usually brought the booze for the party but since they had their own room I didn't provide them any. Then they had two people get in a fight and break the room's TV which got security called on them and upon discovering a BONG in the room, they called the police.People got arrested and they got charged for the damage. The person who booked the room later complained that I didn't bring them any booze leaving them high and dry for the party and complained that I wouldn't give him any money for the room damages. So glad I cut those people off when I did. They weren't even part of my cosplay group after that incident.
I crossplay and my body shape/facial features are absolutely NOT feminine-looking by any stretch of the imagination. I eat right and do a lot of running so I have a proper weight with a relatively good tone, but that doesn't change the face that I'm 6'0", broad shoulders, beard that re-grows five seconds after I shave it, etc.Anyway... Me and a 5'8 manlet acquaintance of mine from the local cosplay group decide to go to a con as Hilda and Ravio from LoZ:ALBW, with me as Hilda obviously. I'm psyched about this because I really love Hilda's character design, so I spend a good chunk of time & money getting her costume to a muuuuuuuch higher level of quality than I've ever bothered with before. Dress, tabard, staff, belt, wig, pointy ears, circlet, the works. Basically everything but the red contact lenses. Let me tell you how hard it is to find non-fetishy opera-length white gloves for someone my size.Day 1 of the con, we're in the hotel room getting dressed up. I can say without bias that I looked better in that Hilda getup than I've ever looked in crossplay before. A friend of mine even helped me practice my makeup ahead of time in order to soften my features a bit, and I sent her a picture of the finished product and she was really excited and happy about it (and she's not the type of person to blow smoke up my ass). I exit the bathroom and my acquaintance looks me over from across the room, and he has this weird crestfallen expression on his face. At first I thought it was because maybe he was sad about the discrepancy in our costumes… he had clearly half-assed his (didn't even have Ravio's black-and-blue scarf, for instance, which IMO is a signature part of the outfit) so I figured he was just pissed that I upstaged him so massively.
>>10517132We get to the main room of the con and this guy instantly starts talking about finding other groups of LoZ cosplayers so we can get pictures. I'm like, okay, I guess so, and we wander around for a while. He finds what he's looking for when we run into a Yuga and Hilda pairing in which the Hilda is very clearly female (and cute tbf). Acquaintance bothers them about getting some pictures, which they're cool with, and then he asks me to take the pictures because "it shouldn't have more than one Hilda, right?" Yuga and girl-Hilda raise their eyebrows at him but play along until I'm done taking pictures. Then girl-Hilda swaps with me and takes some pictures. Ravio-acquaintance then tries to chat with girl-Hilda, who by now is trying to avoid having his spaghetti spill all over her dress because everyone within 50 miles can figure out what's going on at this point.Tl;dr this fucking guy lives in some anime alternate dimension of reality where he thought that a 6'0 masculine dude crossplaying as Hilda was going to be hot enough to fuck, and was disappointed that it didn't happen, and then went off looking for other Hildas to fuck. He eventually found a fat, female one, followed her around for most of the con, and didn't get her number or socials afterwards. My asshole remained unpenetrated.The happy ending here is that I ran into some really cool people from other groups, including a (female) Astrid from HTTYD who gushed forever about my costume and helped me with my makeup on day 2. I'm still in touch with her and some of the other people even after moving to a different state - never talked to Ravio again after we checked out of the hotel.
this thread reminded me how much i hate con degeneracy, maybe covid wasnt so bad to take it away after all
>>10517134> Tl;dr this fucking guy lives in some anime alternate dimension of reality where he thought that a 6'0 masculine dude crossplaying as Hilda was going to be hot enough to fuck, and was disappointed that it didn't happenChrist. I'm glad that nothing bad happened to you and you made some new friends out of it!
I always love reading these threads for the entertainment value. Part of me always feels a little sad that I’ve never had any friends into convention stuff that would lead to horror stories anyway. Win some, lose some.
In 2019, me, my “friend”, and two of her friends from her work who I barely knew went in on a room. Going out of town, haven’t had quality time in a while, having fun joking about our cosplay, I had a way over the top meme Power Girl ready, really looking forward to it.I ride down with work friend 1, seems nice, fun road trip, and we all meet at the hotel Thursday night and find out my “friend” invited her bf which makes five. Sorry, “friend” says, but you can get another room and work friend 2 invited her brother and his friends and they need a roomie. That’s now eight if you’re counting along at home. Let’s slow down here to unpack this horror so you can appreciate it.One. The brother and his two friends were 14.Two. I was 27.Three. Of course I had to pay for the entire room because lol broke teenagers invited last minute lol.Four. The only room left in the hotel, in the entire area, was the SINGLE that work friend 2 reserved at the last minuteFive. It wasn’t a nice hotel and the room and bathroom were tiny.Six. The only costume I have is the most revealing, biggest meme of a Power Girl you can imagine because lol out of town lol let’s all make a joke of it lol.Seven. I don’t have that much else to wear because lol at the con in costume all the time lol all I need is comfy stuff for the drive and at night lol.Eight. Everyone in the other room ditches me leaving me to be babysitter.Nine. Thursday night to Monday morning. Four days. Four. Days.Ten. I didn’t drive. No car. I’m stuck.Eleven. I can’t ditch them at the con so they trail me around like a little leering cloud of perverted orbiters. So...to recap: I get ditched by my “friend”, end up stuck in a tiny single that I’m paying for with three teenagers, with a meme Power Girl costume I wouldn’t wear in public at home, for FOUR DAYS, and get literally harassed by said teenagers for the entire con.I’m still bitter.
>>10530380Die in a fire you swine.
>>10530386To be fair, what defines a "meme" Power Girl cosplay?
>>10530445Mostly, extremely excessive cleavage.
worst con hotel experience: bedbugs. cosplay plans were literally destroyed. worst con roommate experience: nothing too bad. there was that one idiot whose alarm goes off every 10 minutes from 6:30am to 11am, and who usually ends up leaving the room after checkout time.
>>10530485>bedbugsI’ve never had this happen to me but I’m so afraid, what’s it like and how do you know?
>>10530366>So...to recap: I get ditched by my “friend”, end up stuck in a tiny single that I’m paying for with three teenagers, with a meme Power Girl costume I wouldn’t wear in public at home, for FOUR DAYS, and get literally harassed by said teenagers for the entire con.Getting harassed by horny young boys is a Power Girl thingPoints for comic accuracy
>>10512614>Good job bringing race into it tho>Probably a dumb Americanhypocrite
>>10530366How exactly did they harass you? Couldn't you have gone to con security?
>>10530380Sorry for the mean reply, I was cranky last night, but you still get nothing.>>10530631Omg, that’s ridiculous, lol.I’m such a filthy casual, I just now looked up her backstory, but honestly I mostly chose Power Girl because lol big boobied blonde lol. No clue the Power Girl/horny boy thing even existed much less was so much a meme they made Power Girl and a 13 year old boy be love interests and date each other in the comic books and moves. Yikes, lol.Thanks for making my day though, lol, in between the constant cringing I’m in tears from laughing. I’m living one of those, omg it looked so much worse than I realized at the time, moments right now, but, lol, in hindsight it was (accidentally) the best cosplay ever.I was cranky when I posted last and maybe exaggerated my rage a little, but it was a very, very tiresome ordeal and definitely my worst con experience. No bedbugs, though, so not the worst here.I forgot to mention I had to sleep on the floor by the bathroom door because that was the only place left in the room. I tried to claim the bed and make them sleep on the floor but they. just. would. not. shut. up. about. it., so I gave up the bed and that didn’t leave me with many options that didn’t involve the embrace of a 14 year old, and, yeah, no. So I got stepped on and tripped over a few times in the middle of the night. Just another little misery from that weekend.>>10530801And do what? Get them kicked out back to the hotel room I’d have to go back to? There were literally no good options, still mad at her for putting me in that spot.
>>10530860Sorry to hear that anon but I'm glad you can laugh a bit at how silly it all wasFour days? Oh god they probably masturbated with you in the room. I hope they didnt touch you or anything.Hope you told your friend what a shit their brother was and you dont speak to those people anymore.
First con I went to me and a mate were dressed as the wrestling duo "Legion of DOOM" and some faggot dressed as a darlek had a problem with us, constantly ramming into our ankles hitting us with his eye stalk and plunger arm told the cunt to fuck off multiple times got too much and I snapped pushed his darlek suit over pulled the weedy lil fuck out and powerbombed him in the middle of the con. Best part is people thought it was staged because my mate grabbed me and dragged me into the crowd.Up to that day I was neutral on the Dr who franchise (prior to the major reboots) to fucking hating the who fandom ever since.
>>10530919Yep, I don’t speak to any of them. Really more mad at my “friend” who kicked me out of the room and ditched me. The guys, disgusting, but what can you expect from them?They would have had to be sneaky to do that, but, I didn’t ask and ignored everything suspicious like my life depended on it, lol. They tried a few times to get gropey but were mostly too awkward to succeed, it was a lot dumb talk and neverending, every second of the day leering. The worst part was having to put out constant hostility to keep them from acting up even worse, plus the crowded room and never being alone. Plus just generally being mad about the situation.
>>10531052sorry meant to reply to >>10530930
>>10510111>We are not friends anymore.Good
>>10531066All of these stories are crazy to the point of being unbelievable and also too weird not to be true, lol
>>10531513Lol "Big tiddy Power Girl cosplayer forced to room with 3 horny teens" sounds like the plot of a hentai doujin
>>10531518It sounds like the plot of a normal Power Girl comic, I found so many of these gross pics last night after I saw >>10530631 seriously, wtf is wrong with DC, lol
>>10531521Maybe they want to sell the comic to horny teens so they put a self insert character who gets to see her tits? Idk
My ride backed out on me last minute, but I already paid for the hotel and things weren’t great at home so I was really tryna to get away for a few days. Ended up on a 7 hour ride with a dude that turned out to be a total pos. You know that guy at the convention? The one who’s obviously a total loser but picks a popular cosplay that hides his face, lies about his age and says shit to girls like he’s in the military when it turns out he literally works at fucking Burger King. He’s that guy. First off, literally the WHOLE ride over he talks to me nonstop about how big his dick is and how he needs special condoms. Also he assured me that he’s amazing at sex and made his ex cum all the time. Then proceeds to tell me that past a certain point a girl doesn’t really get to say no, because guys really can’t control themselves. I kinda knew he was a piece of shit, but I legit hadn’t realized he was so bad. Anyways, the whole con I’m just trying to avoid this dude as much as possible, but there’s this girl that’s clearly into him for some fucking reason. And they’re talking and flirting and whatever. She seemed age appropriate and really smitten with the guy (who knows what he told her about himself). On the way back, in an attempt to talk about literally anything other than his peanut dick I asked him if he got her number to which he replied: nah, she’s not really my type, I’m looking more for 8’s and above.This dude is like a literal 2. At best. He then starts talking about how his ex liked to be spanked or some shit and I pretended to be asleep the rest of the way. Never talked to that guy since. What a fuckin douche.
>>10531527Know their audience, I guess, but way to break suspension of disbelief in a story about flying alien superheroes.
>>10531529We could have a whole thread about pathological liars on the con circuit.
>>10530958I've had a few kids at cons "accidentaly" touch me where they shouldn't but mostly I see them filming me on their phones if I had to sleep in the same room I'd be terrified of them filiming candids
>>10507817Got hammered, left a larp, went to a hotel with my ride and other carpool guy.Front desk is manned by a fairly bored woman who lets us use the pool despite it being closed.So far so good.The other guys go in naked. I don't, because I don't want to fuck the receptionist. Whatever.I'd suspected one of the guys was gay for years. Not bi, flat out gay and in denial. Not an issue in and of itself, but... Cue 45 minutes of trying to convince me that I needed to strip so I could come over and experience the pool jet on my asshole. Eventually the other guy asked if I thought my girlfriend would get mad if he fucked a prostitute in the hotel room. Told him yes. Truth was I just didn't want to see him fuck whatever horrendous abomination he'd be able to dredge out at that time of night.Overall 8/10, would laugh at again.
Went to Birmingham MCM, booked a cheap room with a friend. Turns out it was the pub a UB40 song was filmed in. Friend couldn't stay anymore so had my boyfriend at the time come with me. I checked in, there was an off-license inside the pub, the guy behind the counter wouldn't let me have late check out despite whatever I booked in saying so, because he "had to go to the airport". I worked nights so this was horrible to hear. Him and his coworker argued about it a bit in a different language, one of them insisting its fine and then another saying it wasn't. The decor was weird. Trumpets everywhere, musty green, stall toilets that were closer to the rooms than the designated room toilets.We went to get Five Guys and he locked us out. At 10:30PM. A pub. This was also St. Patrick's Day iirc. He let us back in then we were locked in the building which was instantly terrifying. The room was fucking freezing, I've never had a worst night's sleep than in that place. It had two single beds and one chair. That was everything in the room. We checked out, we can loudly hear someone getting shagged, then the pub owner is just running around with a phone saying "someone left their phone isn't that wild?!"I am glad that I will never ever stay in a place that cheap again, it was not worth it. Also the pub burned down like last year. Not remotely surprised.
>>10531527Well the ‘07 power girl series is a raunchy comedy that shouldn’t be taken seriously in comparison to Batman.
>>10531810Ick! I didn’t think of that! Don’t think they did unless they were sneaky, guess I have to assume they did it but nothing’s surfaced.We’re kinda sidetracking this thread now but I don’t mind pics or vids at cons. I know some people are taking creep shots but I am in public, and we work hard on these things, getting pics taken is part of the fun for me.They did try to get grabby. I put a stop to that quick. I’ve had some kids “accidentally” touch me where they shouldn’t too, like when wanting a pic or just random times. Younger teens I cut some slack if they are trying to be sneaky and not overt and rude, they are still figuring things out, and idk, so what, they briefly touch a butt or boob and it makes their day. I’ll even flirt with them a little if they are cute. They are usually pretty timid, it’s easy to let them know the boundaries with some side eye or a snarky comment. I’m pretty friendly when not being a sarcastic bitch and meeting people is part of the fun, also loathe the hover hand, dude my shoulder isn’t hot lava lol. A 30 year old feral neckbeard should know better and gets much less leeway. Sometimes you just have to bluntly shut someone down because they’re jerks or can’t take a hint. That was the worst part, in addition to the million annoyances I had to be as mean as possible the entire time, it put a damper on meeting people and really ruined the whole experience.
>>10532196>I’ll even flirt with them a little if they are cuteThat’s pretty creepy to do anon ngl. Wtf.
>>10532198Just a little to make them smile, not enough to be creepy.
>>10532198I don't think anon meant she was flirting seriously. She just jokingly wanted to give the boys a nice story to tell "Wow bros that cosplayer totally flirted with me!" Like come on, not everything has to have some sexual undertones, stop being horny.
>>10532220Thanks, you said it better than I did.
>>10531529That horrible moment when you realize you still have six more hours stuck in a car with that creep.
>>10532196Did you manage to have any fun at the con while you were babysitting the 3 amigos?Presumably people wanted to take pictures with you and stuff.Would you cosplay PG again when (if...) cons come back?
>>10532216>>10532220Imagine op is a guy fan. That’s nasty.
>>10533505No anon, see when women sexually harass boys at the con, that’s cute. It’s only when men flirt with younger girls that it’s creepy and gross.
>>10533435Some people wanted pictures or would talk, but not nearly as many as usual, I think I had permanent rbf because of the three pendajos and it scared people off. Plus the panels and artist alley and stuff weren’t interesting, I don’t know if it was the con or my attitude.Probably not going to cosplay Power Girl again. I learned way too many perverted things about her backstory here and now the shame is too great lol.
>>10533505>>10533507Yes, because that’s exactly how it happened. If you can’t see there’s a difference between a kid making an awkward pass at a cosplayer when getting a photo and getting a wink and a flirty comment back instead of deranged screeching about sexual harassment, and some feral neckbeard cornering a girl and pawing her, then I don’t know...
1. Second hand misery, but I saw someone with one of those two wheeled luggage things for moving stacks of boxes topple it over and spill a big pile of comics outside the hotel the night before a con. Helped him pick them up, turned out he was an exhibitor and about half the stuff he'd brought to sell was ruined since it was raining and the ground was so wet. I felt so bad for him.2. First con I could legally drink at. Pretty much zero experience with alcohol beforehand. Got black out drunk with some friends who were staying in another hotel, friend I was rooming with went back to our room at like 1am but had to come collect me from reception at like 4:30am where I was trying to go to sleep on the floor. I couldn't work the lift and had just gave up. Apparently the staff took my key, looked up our booking and phoned our room to ask she collect me because I was that far gone, and told her they'd have called the cops if there hadn't been someone there to take responsibility for me because there was no way I could be left alone. I say apparently because I've got no memory of any of this. She was pissed, and abandoned me the next day to go to the con herself while I stayed in the hotel and cried my way through babby's first hangover.
>>10511717>>10511969>>10531529>>10531850Do you ever just lose hope in men all over again
>>10533574I’m 7 hour ride with a pervert story and I’m a guy fwiw. But yeah, men, especially men in the anime/con space are generally the worst.
>>10530486The bites you wake up with in the morning.They'll only come out when it's pitch dark, but you can see their eyes and shit it's creepy as hell.
>>10533574The advice given to the friendzoned dude is mediocre advice, but the back half is accurate. If you catch feelings for someone that is so comfortable with you they'll undress and talk about their crushes in front of you, chances are high that declaring your feelings will probably be a 'betrayal of their trust.'It's not healthy to hover over someone as their 'friend' because you want to date or fuck them, not for you, not for them.
>>10533509Anon, the only reasonable thing to have done in your situation would have been to put your foot down, my choice of words would have been 'If you leave your children with me I will not be watching them and will be finding someone else's room for the night. As is, you were a literal bathroom doormat. Your 'friend' planned that shit behind your back so she could hang with the people she liked, and she knew you'd be accommodating.Remember, no matter how lonely you are or how earnest they seem, work aquaintences will never be real friends. You shouldn't encourage it until after you've left the job. You are friends of convience in a hostage situation where there's only so many of you getting out alive (getting promoted), and that doesn't improve until you join unions or enter into no stakes positions.
>>10533611The two biggest mistakes were a poor choice of a friend and riding there with someone, that’s what trapped me there. I haven’t talked to her since and I’m always driving myself from now on...if we ever get cons back. The other two were her friends from her work so I never saw them again.The three stooges got ditched just like I did, that’s why they followed me around the whole time. I hate them and they are disgusting, but you have to feel a little sorry for them too.
>>10533581That’s so disgusting.
>>10533710Literal bathroom doormat to those 'pitiable boys' Love yourself more anon, don't let anyone treat you like that.
>>10533574Nah. Those two were idiots, doesn't reflect on everyone.
>>10534026Who at that age had everything figured out? I can’t be too hard on them even as annoying as they were when I think of all the cringe stuff I did at that age. They were ditched too and were mostly just doing dumb boy things, and if I didn’t firmly set boundaries then that’s as much my fault as theirs. Teenagers will always push the limits. I don’t know, I’d rather save most of the hate for the truly deserving.
Con 1 - Girl who was supposed to be rooming with my group told us AT THE CON that she wasn't going to room with us because she wanted to save money by staying at a friend's house nearby for free instead. We were all kind of upset because we had to pay more for the room than what we thought, and she could have told us this BEFORE the con. Later in the day, I was doing a photoshoot and came back to the room to get changed, and when I walked into the hotel room, that girl and 6-7 people I had never seen in my life were chilling in the room with their suitcases and clothes scattered everywhere, and the room was completely trashed (garbage and scraps of food all over the place). Apparently, the group that girl wanted to stay with needed a hotel room after all, so one of my roomies let them in to use our room for the weekend for free. Con 2 - I went to a con with that same girl who was willing to let those people use the room for free. She told me she had hotel arrangements and everything, and that we'd be staying with a couple of her friends. Stupid me should have asked for more details. Turns out, there was no hotel room. We spent the first night at some girl's dorm at a college campus an hour away. I was in my early 20s at the time, and there were a ton of teenaged weebs staying with us. I couldn't get any sleep - I was trying to sleep on the floor while the teenaged weebs spend all night screaming about Hetalia (it was during THOSE days). I remember gross stuff too, like, at one point I went to use the bathroom, and someone had peed their pants and left their dirty underwear on the floor RIGHT in front of the toilet so you couldn't use the toilet without having to deal with this. We spent the next night at my friend's friend's brother's house an hour and a half away, where they were having a party. There was a fight the next morning and cops were called, so we couldn't leave to go back to the con until that was taken care of.
>>10535389Also, I should clarify in the first story that those people did not, in fact, end up using our room for free. I was rooming with my sister, and we were both pissed and kicked them all out and yelled at the roomie who let them in. That girl also stopped going to cons. She said the reason is because there's always too much drama. The most drama I've had at cons is because of her, so....
>>10535389>I went to a con with that same girl who was willing to let those people use the room for freestories like this are why i always have a 1 strike policy now.
>>10535393It's basically a fact that people who say they hate drama are the ones causing it, They usually only hate that it happens to them.
>>10535389>someone had peed their pants and left their dirty underwear on the floor RIGHT in front of the toiletWhat kind of subhumans are these?
>>10534586And what did you teach them about what to expect from women that day I wonder?
>>10535533the fuck is wrong with you?
>>10535533What should I have taught them? Should I have treated them like nothing and ditched them, too? Should I have been so off-putting and treated them like monsters, destroy their confidence, because they are going through the most awkward years of anyone’s life and are dumb, self-centered, and horny?Boys are going to act retarded and be interested in girls and think about sex constantly, it’s not wrong. When they learn not to be dumb and annoying, these will interact with women just fine, because they are very handsome boys, very confident, just dumb and unpolished. They pushed the limits a little but they literally don’t know yet. They’ll grow up, most people do, and when they do they understand stuff like this.The con was horrible and they did not make things better, I can complain and call them names because I was the one they tormented, but they aren’t bad. As frustrated as it makes me to think about the annoying, it wasn’t even intentional, they liked me, even some puppy love, and I’m ok with that and ok with them. I don’t know what kind of supposed lesson I could or should have taught them.Now the three who ditched me and her dumb looking bf who looks exactly like a soijack meme, them I hate.
>>10535618I read that as self-righteous huffing about supposedly teaching them to treat women as a doormat. Not as some other kind of snide implication.
>>10535686That's hwat I got out of it too. I still want to know what the fuck is wrong with the anon in question. Life isn't a fucking hallmark movie, powergirl anon isn't going to magically fix three teenagers and teach them valuable life lessons, nor should she even be fucking expected to.
>>10535833nta but you are still missing the point. >>10535533 is essentially bitching at the OP for being a push over when she should have stood up for herself.
>>10535533>>10535679>>10535861>14 year olds full of hormones>busty woman wearing a sexy outfit with a literal boob window>force them to be together 24/7Its like waving a steak infront of a hungry dogYou're going to get a reaction
>>10535402A lot of times they thrive on it even when it happens to them.
One time I shared a room with a bunch of weebs. I was supposed to share a bed with one guy but then one of the creeps tried to con his way into switching places with the non creep dude at which point I kicked him off the bed and made them both sleep on the floor.Another time I came back to my room I shared with a different group of weebs and opened the door to see that one of the dudes was taking a shit with the door wide open. Now I just pay extra to have the whole damn room to myself.
>>10535679Boys do not have a default "be shitty" state. They can be properly socialized like girls are. It just takes actual parenting instead of "Boys will be boys" nonsense.
>>10533574> all over again Nah. Once you have dated a few you know not to expect anything from those talking piles of garbage anymore. Men are a waste of time, space and air. Next
>>10536264Relatable. The number of times my broke ass ended up sharing a room with the worst kind of con orgy is too damn high.
>>10507817Once my friend decked me in the face after screaming at me for like ten minutes because I was "keeping him up". I had been in the lobby for like three hours prior to this, he just woke up to me coming back into the room. We're still bros lmao.
>>10536396be careful not to cut yourself on all that edge
>>10536467Butthurt scrote detected
>>10536481Be sure to adopt at least ten cats, that's the minimum number needed to completely devour your fat ass when you kill yourself at 45. Don't be rude and make the fire department have to deal with 200lbs of liquified blubber wrapped in a "this is what a feminist looks like" shirt.
>>10536605Is that your plan, scrote? It'd be better if you skip the rest and kill yourself now
>>10536481>>10536605>>10536618>>10536620shut the fuck up and just get married already. i can't stand you incel/femcel idiots bawwing about how much you hate men/women and then taking every opportunity to talk to eachother and derail shit. if you hate eachother so much stop interacting.
>>10536624Then leave, this is 4chan, home of the incels, what the fuck did you expect lol
>>10536385They do. It’s called puberty. Socialized, you’re talking about them like they are animals. They aren’t, even if they do act like it. They’ll grow up.>>10536396Yikes.
>>10536680Socialized is a term that actual people use, anon. It's not degrading.
>>10536683I’ve only heard it used to describe training animals.
>>10536686Nayrt but socialization is a term often used in child development. And humans are animals too. Socialization is less about training and more about learning how to interact with others, especially outside of your immediate family. It's more complex than that but far different than just training a pet to sit or something.
>>10536697Ok, that may be so, but I suspect other anon was using it to degrade them. Maybe I’m a little sensitive, we spent four entire days together and a lot of bonding happened, or maybe just Stockholm syndrome lol.
>>10536640i don't care about them being here in general, but it's annoying that they hump eachother's legs as soon as they see one another posting.
>>10536680>like they're animalsI hate to be the one to pop this bubble for you anon but fact humans actually are animals, and social ones at that
I used to have a local cosplay friend back in like 2012-2014. In my town cosplayers and weebs weren’t exactly common so I took what I could get. Poor younger anon didn’t realise what unholy shit I was gonna witness. The last con i attended with her I booked two separate rooms, she was in the second once since she fucking smells.the only clothes she had were her two cosplays that she travels in which already looked like it’s never washed. It was to the point where we had to FORCE her to shower by locking her in the bathroom after she refused to shower or brush her teeth because she did the before the con. Not to mention she thought it was actually normal to leave used feminine products just out in the bathroom. She also smacked some poor cosplayer around the head with a real frying pan which they later had to go to hospital for. Thanks skidders for the con memories
>>10536817>Stockholm syndromeyeah, sounds about right.
>>10530366I have literal nightmares about scenarios like this
>>10536396they hated her cause she told the truth.
>>10531529>Then proceeds to tell me that past a certain point a girl doesn’t really get to say no, because guys really can’t control themselves.That reminds me of a time I booked a room at an AirBnB with an MIA hostess. It was an older house and although I had my own room, there was guy staying there as well across the hall. The owner who left the first day I got there, didn't tell me this dude was staying there at the same time as me nor that she was taking off. He seemed OK at first but awkward and maybe on the spectrum. At some point though he would go out of his way to start a long conversation with me even when I was heading out, and he seemed to always turn the conversation risque out of nowhere.Well one time he was talking about women jogging or something, and said like>yeah and with some of the skimpy things they wear, you can't expect a guy who sees you to stop himself!like WTF?!? Oh and guess what, this stupid house didn't have a lock on my fucking BEDROOM DOOR and she books it co-ed while leaving. So yeah after that encounter I packed my shit up, moved to some motel for the rest of my stay, and I think got a partial refund from my hostess after a strongly worded message about the situation. To be fair she was really nice and understanding about it after the fact, but she seemed clueless and naive.
My boyfriend got drunk with his friends and shit himself in his sleep. Kept trying to wake him up all night but he was out cold. We all ended up evacuating the room and sleeping in the hallway because it smelled so bad.
>>10530366One costume 3 days of con going sounds horrible from your end though.
Used to work night shift so when I got off I drove 4 hours down to Columbus, OH for Matsuricon. My friend said she her apartment was close to the con and we could stay there for the weekend. Host apparently didn't own a car and since I had all this shit in my car and we where gonna party at her place we where gonna drive seperate with host going with another friend. Somewhere along the line the friend said no and instead the host took the fucking bus back to her house and to make matters worse I then had to stuff 2 extra people in my packed car. Her aparment was NOT close. It was a good 45 minute drive and in a horrible gheto hood in a very shitty and rundown apartment. Of course we got there before her and had to wait a 2 hours for her to get home, so we all just waited outside in the middle of this parking lot as neighbors and gang bangers walked by and harrassed us. Finaly host comes and her aparmtment is on the top floor and is is fucking rank nasty and hot as hell. Her windows do not ope and since she is "poor" she refused to turn the AC on. I of course pass out and host decides to draw a bunch of dicks on my face in permanit marker on my face that was a bitch to wash off.I gave in and got a hotel for the night across from the con for us cause I was NOT doing this for the weekend. Host of course did not pay me back or pitch in for anything despite saying she would and never has, also pretty sure she stole money from us cause we sure where missing some spare cash in our wallets. I wish that was the end of it but it sure wasn't and boy is that story a fucking nightmare.
>>10536856You’re arguing philosophy or biology when the other anon is just here to insult.>>10538135There’s nothing I can say that will avoid the venom from certain people now because I didn’t dehumanize and hate them. They are disgusting idiot pigs who ruined the entire con, but they are my disgusting idiot pigs who I basically lived with and took care of for an entire weekend.>>10538470Always give yourself an independent way to get home, that’s my big lesson. I would have just packed up and driven home if I could.>>10538697A white leotard? Yeah, I had changes, I know better. One drunken idiot and I go from Power Girl to fruit punch and rum Girl. And that and a cape are literally the costume.
>>10538727>I wish that was the end of it but it sure wasn't and boy is that story a fucking nightmare.Please continue.
>>10538760Host owns a little ankle biter dog. I guess it was her mom's or something that she stole but needless to say Host has stated many times in the past how she hated the dog and never seemed to give a shit about pets or animals and it was clear she was doing the bare minimum to take care of it (probably why her apartment smelled like shit). OF course all things must come to an end and the dog dies. Despite her stating how much she hated the dog Host is in tears over it's sudden death, and being poor and unsure what do to a quick google search says that putting a pet in your freezer for a few days so it doesn't rot is a good idea. She is crying and crying about her dog and my friends who live close to her are idiots and give in to her sorrow by taking her, a grown woman, to the shelter to buy her a new pet. They decide on a kitten since Host is I guess more of a cat person and cats are in general easier to take take of. My friends literally buy her a baby kitten and all her supplies. Host is crying how thankful she is and her new angle. Maybe, 2 days go by and we all get a text in our group chat over the kitten. Apparently this kitten is the spawn of satan and has been destroying her apartment. She hates the kitten and the kitten is so crazy that she can't control it and it needs to go now. Everyone is now freaking out cause Host stated she could handle a fucking cat and specially after 3 day, let alone a literal kitten, seemed impossible. One friend goes over to her apartment to see what is going on and to all our sarcastic shock it all looks the same. Friend tries to get info out of her but Host is just incoherently screaming and now saying that she was tricked in to getting a cat and how her apartment doesn't even allow pets. It would have ended their but then the friend made a horrible discovery....
>>10538766....Host still had the fucking dog in her freezer. It's now been 2 weeks at this point since the dog was originally put there and all it's wrapped in is a tiny ass dish cloth. As you can expect friend got in to a fight with Host over how disgusting that is and now all of us are banned and blocked and anyone who asks her about taking the kitten from her just get's ghosted for a few days or the conversation changes. Normally it would stop there but another friend of ours who HATED host and finally sick of her decided to go out and spend some money on a full background check from the Ohio police department on Host. Here is what Host has told us about herself over the 5+ years I have known her,>She is originally from the south.>She is actually black but somehow came out white>Her mother is dead and has showen us her facebook profile.>Her father left them when she was born.>She has a black brother named Delarious, which a few years ago she made a gofundme for his funeral which our friends donated money too and raised 2k.>She has had sex 6 times, all 6 of which have been rapes.Here is what the report found.>She is white.>Her family lives in Columbus.>Both her parents are white.>She has 2 other white sisters who are still alive.>No reports on rapes but multiple reports of her assulting her family and a few other people.(Of course I called this all out when I first met her but since all my "friends" told me I was being a nazi bigot and all my black friends where totally ok with her screaming and calling everyone a nigger cause "she was one of them" and I need to stop being a trump supporting racist but whatever.)
>>10538781Anywho, all this was told to me 2 months after it all happened cause I generally hate her and after all this Host either blocked everyone or people just blocked her. The few people she didn't block reported about a month later that Host had been taking pics with her dead dog, so that means the dog has been sitting in her freezer for 3 months. The cat is nowhere to be found, Host was also in to voodoo and would hunt squirls, chipmunks and other creatures to make voodoo charms and performs curses, and well a few of her charms and such sure looked pretty feline. 4 months later Hosted tried to make another gofundme for her fake brother and was partnering with a bunch of random onions boy twitch streamers to raise money to start her voice actinc carrer and make a polit episode of some TV show she came up with. After that I have no idea what happened to her. This all happened summer of 2019 and I stopped talking to that group because they are all a bunch of SJW cunts and complete cucks who constantly hang out people like Host. For my ending here are some pictures of Host along with the black lady she claimed was her mother that fooled everyone in to thinking she was black. I'd tell you hosts real name but in all honesty I do not know it, as another thing I left out form part 2 of my start is that she also changed her name multiple times. If you are going to a con in Ohio and you see this thing, stay away from her, or feel free to put the beast down.
>>10510111tfw I can't stay at 5 star hotels during cons because all of my weeb friends are poorfags
>>10538790Still not as good as the wizard of oz story, but I give it a 7/10 for fake ass black lady
Not sure if this counts but I staffed at a con and some staffs receive the privilege of having a hotel roomFirst one is mine: >Rooming selection was done in a similar fashion as lottery: you need to be approved first and then they randomly assign you roommates as long as it's not coed>Receive a room because I practically finish at 11pm/midnight and have to start at 6am>Befriend all the people in the room >One of them warned us that he snores >Didn't mention he was as loud as a bear >Nobody in the room got any sleep except for him >1 roommates even came forward and told us that he sleeps with industrial level noise cancelling earbuds and he was still hearing the guy >We still laugh at this Other is from a friend of a friend >Get assigned a single room for himself >On the last second, he gets assigned a roommate because the guy sucked up to his friend who had a strategic level of influence in the con >Friend was fine, as long as he gets sleep>Guy brings one of his buddies because he can show off that he is important in the con and because he has a hotel room for free>Friend still tolerated this eventhough he shouldn't >In the middle of the night, he wakes up to the guy drawing dicks on his face (or the guy was dry humping him, I don't remember) while his friend was filming >Friend finally report this to the con >Because the guy had a friend inside management, he didn't get any reprimand The guy got kicked from the staff after it was found out that he was harrassing female staff. His friend ghosted the con multiple times during the planning phases and nobody knows what is going on with him
One year me and my partner decided to set up a stall to sell some of my nerdy artwork in my country's main Comic Con which is in a large glass roofed worlds fair-like exhibition hall the worst part was the drive there and back which is like nearly 5 hours from where we live as it's semi-country lanes to the nearest motorway which driving on that only takes only 2 hours to like get to the Comic Con building from the place where we finally got onto it, as we were finally about to get into the city where it's held there was a holdup due to an accident so we were there for just over 40 minutes once that fiasco was over we tried looking for the hotel we booked ourselves into (which is like a 15-20 minutes underground train ride from the Convention) and we got lost trying to find it as my partner wasn't used to driving in places like this city and most of the buildings looked the same we then came to a main road which we thought was going to take us to our hotel we then followed it for while but we then found out we were miles away from where we wanted to be when I looked up the name of the street in Google maps and compared it the map we printed out on Google Maps so we turned back, followed another road we turned into only to find out we got caught behind a slow moving cement mixer my partner tried to swerve in and out from behind it until it eventually got out of our way only for a bus to take its place, the bus was more luckier as it then speeded off a few minutes later then we saw what could be a shortcut (only for it to be a courtyard) after that mistake the sun was then going down and we were still like miles from the hotel
>>10538989My partner then needed a piss so I jokingly gave him my tall Coke Can I brought with our lunch at the rest stop on the motorway hours ago he refused because he thought I might chuck it out of the window or give to a policeman to drink or people on the street passing by would see him pissing in our car even thought I was only joking and he didn't get the joke, but luckily enough we then came to a roundabout and according to Google maps it was only up a road we had to get onto first and then turn off after many feet but my partner suddenly went up the wrong road and I told him to turn back he eventually did and we truly on our way to the hotel only for us to try and find which side of the road it was on as the place it was near on the map we printed out didn't have the place it was near anymore and it didn't even have a actual car park which was at the side of the hotel and was more of a residents car park as it was quite small and in like an alleyway and there was another car trying to get out and we waited for that one to pass only for us to get in and my partner was trying to park our car In one of the most tightest spots after that but he soon did it eventually after really what was now 7 hours and 35 minutes since we left home we made to our hotel where we were staying for several days as we did our artwork stall for this Comic Con
>>10538790I exclusively check these threads for ohio con drama and this didn't disappoint, 7.5/10 would believe
>>10538989>>10539000Bruh, punctuation doesn’t cost money.
>>10538758I've never seen someone so allergic admitting they should have said 'no'
>>10538781>Dog in freezer for 2 monthsI meeeean, if she wasn't being grote and storing it open the way you described, this would be fine, even morally, from the standpoint of processing the dog into a memorial taxidermy piece. The 'hunting small animals' bit is a little eh, much easier just to find bones on hiking trails unless she happens to be a fair shot with a BB gun. You could totally report her for killing non-invasive species either way though, hint: any bird bones are inherently suspect and might catch her a misdemeanor. She's in desperate need of meds and therapy though, that's for sure.>Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, take alone is a misdemeanor violation with maximum penalty of six months in prison and $15,000 fine, and commercialization is a felony violation with a maximum penalty of two years imprisonment and $250,000 fine
>>10539077Prosecute under the Migratory Bird Act for a bad con experience? What is this insanity even, lol?
>>10539052Sorry, I wrote it quite quick and i just remembered it didn't take 7 hours and 35 minutes to get to the hotel we stayed at for our Comic Con week from our house (or hometown). The journey took 8 hours and 29 minutes even though the journey time is supposed to be around 4-5 hours by car but we stopped a few times, got lost trying to find the hotel, and got stuck in traffic.Also the journey back home only took us like 6 hours and 35 minutes as we had to go to the convention building to get (and put away) our stall and have a little Tour Bus like drive round the main part of the City. Before getting onto the motorway which didn't have any traffic holdups this time round.
>>10507817At Manchester MCM there was a small dumpy guy in an absolutely amazing Chrono from CT. I complimented his cosplay and he autistically said thanks. Later on I'm talking to this girl he apparently likes and he challenges me to a fight outside. I laughed at him so he swung for me and I put him down with one right hook. The girl went off and I didn't see her again all day
>>10539215Anon knows crazy chick from con scene killing animals and has a dead dog covered in a towel next to her frozen peas, who may or may not be killing off limits species without a care. It would be their own fault for getting in trouble.Bird bones are pretty easy to spot, and only invasive species are ok to collect.
>>10510026that's rough buddy
>>10539273Pretty sure you got thrown out m8
>>10539075I'm pretty sure she knows that.
>>10507817I've never been on this boardare you all really femanons or are you trannies larping?then again i know a cosplay girl, she looks like a goblin and used to be obsessed with FF7i guess some girls would find their way here....
Vegan roommate established the rule "no animal product for consumption or storage" as soon as we arrived. Didn't let anyone know beforehand. Not even milk, eggs, fish, nothing with the least tiny trace of animal in it. Later called me "out of touch with human civilization" for being unable to make food for myself as an adult (on her rules).Started asking cosplayers if stuff was real fur or real leather and acting like a stuck up holier-than-thou cunt talking about how the textile industry is harmful, or how her fabrics were ethically sourced.Never roomed with anyone ever again.
>>10541171I can't believe these people are actually real. Sorry you had to room with a cartoon caricature.
>>10539075Said no to what and done what, exactly?
>>10541171God damn, I would have told her about my real fur coat out of spite.
>>10541022You seem very lost, little boy
>>10541022Mostly trannies, femboys who like to sew, and a few female bridge trolls with poor hygiene. :)
>>10541830ah, explains the replies
>>10512027your "friend" might be slightly autistic as well
>>10537851I can picture that lol
>>10535679>Should I have treated them like nothing and ditched them, tooThey aren't your family. If I were you I would have told them to beg his sister for a place to stay, or random strangers, or to sleep in the street. They weren't your problem, it's not your responsibility to teach them manners, it's was your acquiatance's who is the sister of one of them, if she failed in her duties, then tough shit lol.
>>10536385>girls>properly socialized lmao
>>10517134>>10517132can we get pics of you as hilda,anon
Does it have to be Convention related?
