UUAGA06: Memorandum

To: The guy sitting one seat away from me during the service of the living tradition, the one with the chewing gum, who stole my program and thought the problems with the closed-captioning were so freaking hilarious that he was STILL reading the bigger mistakes off a full half hour after the problem appeared.

From: CC

It's amazing how tiny, inconsiderate behaviors can add up to really mess with somebody else's experience.

Good point. You might mention it to one of the GA Planning folks or Gini or someone who could point it out publicly. There are better ways of dealing with one's negative experiences than griping and making others feel miserable.

Sorry you lost your program. Hope you find a replacement.

Oh, I'll grab a new program this morning.

Actually, of all the stuff he did, reading the closed captioning mistakes aloud was the most irritating, I thought.

I don't think there's need for a formal complaint, he just bugged me.

They do a pretty good job, that gets better as they get used to the particular language sets we use.

A few years ago, I have to admit that the giggles for the Dan Savage (sex advice columnist) lecture errors were hard to avoid, but the simultaneous captioner was a good sport about it... and actually put something up on the screen because Dan was getting laughs at moments he wasn't expecting... (And really, the captioner probably didn't expect to have to spell the technical terms for oral sex...)
