Someone sent me an email and told me that there were quite a few people who want to attend SNARKNYC but won’t because I am the one organizing it.
First this made me angry.
And then I got really, really sad.
I know my personality is a bit “tangy” to say the least. And I know I can rub some people the wrong way.
I just didn’t know that my attitude/demeanor could effect people in such a way that they would not come to a get together with sooooo many other people they may like simply to avoid seeing/having to deal in any way with me.
I hope that if anyone had plans to attend and then reconsidered on account of me that they will rethink that decision and know that I am organizing this event because I had a rough year. Because I love my friends. Because we all deserve it. And I am not going to let anything interfere with this night being the best night it can possibly be.
So with that said…don’t be a dick. And just come anyway.
