Hey. You Make a Better Door Than a Window. Down In Front!
My daughter plays 7th grade volleyball. I was at my daughters game a couple nights ago and it wasn’t five minutes into the action when “one of those people” stood in front of the bleachers. Don’t pretend like you don’t know who I’m talking about. It’s one of THEM. I find that often, the nicest of people can turn into view-stealing barricades – oblivious to others that are trying to watch the game.
Now, I’m not talkiing about those of us jump to our feet in the stands when the game is tied in tripple overtime . I get that. There’s an unwritten rule about standing that goes along with mood of the game.
This brings me to my delima. I like to think I’m a nice person. I really don’t want to make someone uncomfortable by pointing out basic laws of physics and light refraction and just tell them that they’re standing in EVERYONE’S way. Would it be okay to pull them aside and try to politely explain the situation?
Here’s some of the advice that you had to give
I don’t know that we really came to any conclusions. I suppose I could just move. Which begs the question… If someone is standing in front but there’s no one behind them, are they still blocking the view?
