Yes indeed! I will be arriving on Thursday, leaving on Monday, and spending the weekend with my usual crew! I won’t be in cosplay this year, but you should be able to find me if you keep your eyes open.
Sometimes I feel like my life experiences are a continuing string of saying “No one is actually THIS bad in real life”, and then unfortunately witnessing people that bad.
I know I go on about the horrible neighbor bros a lot, but something’s occurred to me as I’m forced to overhear their terrible conversations.
The way that they speak in mocking of being scolded for porch sex makes me consider that amongst their lot, whomever was responsible the act has not owned up.
In most situations, if a person in a rooming agreement with others had been revealed to be doing something problematic for the rental agreement, the other(s) would confront the guilty party and ask them to knock it off, or boot them outright, depending on the severity of the infraction. This is not the case next door; instead there’s just this kind of general surliness and embarrassment that they were confronted, but it’s never been directed within their own ranks. There have been no strong denials, like someone who has been falsely accused are most likely to do, but rather this sort of continued braying about the complaint, like it’s somehow stupid of my landlord to ask them to not fornicate in the open air like a bunch of animals. It’s HIS fault, but not THEIR OWN.
I find this kind of strange at first glance, but on deeper analysis, it makes more sense. Amongst people of their ilk, there’s not much loyalty or responsibility, and no one would call anyone else out for any behavior that wasn’t sort of immediately threatening to the bro dynamic. Everyone’s going to sit around pretending that sex on the porch never actually occurred, but with the mental awareness that it actually DID happen, but they’re too emotionally and morally constipated to figure out who did it and how to discipline them correctly.
