The point is, scalpers that take advantage of people who are just trying to make an honest, hardworking living deserve to be told to their face that they’re no good worthless pieces of shit. And here’s what I’m going to do about it:
Next time I see a scalper selling tickets I’m going to tell him just that. I’m going to tell him that he shouldn’t be doing it and if he has a smaller beard than me, maybe I’ll tell him I’ll kick his ass and steal the tickets from him. I’ve never actually been in a fight, but sometimes I think if I act intimidating maybe I won’t have to follow through with my claims.
Or better yet, maybe I should buy some tickets for upcoming shows, stand right beside the scalpers and sell my tickets for what I paid for them. If business is about the best price, guess who’s line is gonna be longer?
