Shaking my head in disbelief at corporate America
- So I called Gortons to see if they minded if we set up a table
somewhere in the store. to paraprase the conversation-
NE-- My name is,,,explained pennlug, basic intro
THEM-- What is a lego user group?
ME --We don't want to try an upstage you or anything its just that
its made of lego and we're a lego club.
THEM-- No those figures are not lego,,they are lego like.
ME-- Umm no I don't think Sean Kenney would make sculptuures out of
mega blocks or anything else and I'm talking about the sculptures,
not the little give aways
THEM-- Oh, do you know mister kenney?
ME (thinking if I did I would rob his house blind of all those
bricks) No ma'am,,but we know who he is and well aware of what he
creates,,look we just wanted to know if you minded us being in the
store when the sculpture was there since we are a lego club
THEM-- We are not looking for a cross promotion at this time,,yadda
yadda and we didnt even extend an invite to mr Kenney yadda yadda
ME--I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A CROSS PROMOTION OF ANYTHING ELSE,,DO YOU
CARE IF WE ARE IN THE STORE???????????????
THEM-- we are nt prepared for any cross promotion etc etc
ME- We aren't looking to do any promotion with you,,we we just
thinking of being in the store and intro
I told them they should REALLY look into the LEGO community since
they commisoned this sculpture and be a little more aware of life in
Long story short--I'm going anyway,,I just wont have a "table""
