To The Asshole Who Sat Behind Me At the Springsteen Show in Kansas City


See what you were missing?

2. When you are gesticulating angrily and you accidentally spill beer all over the person in front of you, the correct response is to say "I'm sorry." If you are a particularly chivalrous individual, you might even offer to get some napkins or something, but, really, "Sorry" will do.

The correct response is never to look at the person blankly and shrug.

3. When, half an hour later, it occurs to you that maybe you should apologize for spilling your beer over the person in front of you, you should apologize to the person in front of you, the one you spilled beer on. Not her boyfriend.

4. And after you fail to exhibit the most basic form of concert etiquette, you have absolutely no right to get up and lecture other people about standing up and dancing. Particularly at a Springsteen concert, which, whatever you may think of the music itself, is about joy and generosity of spirit.

But since you possess neither of these qualities, it should probably come as no surprise that you will get up and leave the show at regular intervals and for long periods of time, and then disrupt everyone else's seating arrangements upon your return.

5. As you make everyone get up and move around because of you, you continue to blame the altitude of section 222 for your bad behavior. But hey guess what? It ain't section 222, you asshole. It's all you.

This is why I will never site in the upper deck again.  It's filled with assholes.

When I saw the headline, I would have swore this was Chad writing the piece.

 

A 2 page article about how a guy spilled beer on you and wouldn't apologize the way you expected him to seems a bit indulgent

these are actions of noobs, or people that have not been to a show since these acts were considered new.

I witnessed a similar thing at the McCartney show last week. A drunk couple were dancing around with beers in hand and spilling a little. The guy spilled some on this 10 yr. old kid in front of him, after awhile, the kid's dad got up and said, "Hey, watch what your doing!' The drunk responded by cursing him and shoves turned to punches. It was over as quickly as it began and the drunk couple sat there with their buzzkill for the rest of the show. The sad thing is similar things happen at about every concert.

you might not want to go to a show if you are this particular about your "space".

that's your punishment for putting money into that obama worshiping hack's wallet.

You're showing your age! ;-) The Sprint Center is not all that ideal for concert-goers to begin with. And at 5'0'', all I ever see are butts and armpits.
