#31 Are you sure it was an OOC area? They could have been playing elves who passed through a dimensional portal from their land. Of course, involving random people in their game is pretty douchy. And the more I read those two first sentences the less likely I think it is. My real question is why did OP even try to pronounce the elflord's name? Just take the order and deliver the food. OP YDI for spending more time than absolutely necessary in their presence. FYL because they broke character and complained instead of ensorcelling you or shooting you in the eye with an arrow.
What is so "not normal" about LARP'ing? I don't LARP myself, but I don't point and tease at those that do. Civil War re-enacting is considered to be LARP'ing, and you don't see anyone condemning the old timers who embrace it... You'll be surprised how mainstream a lot of geeky/nerdy stuff is nowadays, so when you think about it, it's a perfectly normal and ordinary thing to encounter.
I agree with the fact that they were horrible LARPers if that is really what they were doing, and not simple cosplay. Unless of course they were RPing that they were sucked into another dimension and had to conform to the rules of that new world, as they learned in the last tavern they visited. OP, be glad you aren't in the first restaurant staff they encountered, which is probably currently hospitalized and waiting to press charges.
that is very unprofessional of your manager...what a prick. I would not put up with that shit.
Actually to the people thumbing this one down. Managers can't chastise employees in front of other employees or the customer. It's very unprofessional and just makes it 10x worst for the employee in trouble. What should have happened is the manager apologize to the customers and take the employee to the office or constructive criticism. Unless OP is over exaggerating.
LARP seems pretty cool but some LARPers are utter asshats. I saw a youtube video where this guy was explaining LARP to a passerby, and the guy said "oh, so you're a barbarian like the Celts?" and the LARPer bitched him out saying "no, gah! I'm a barbarian from the mystical plains of Ashgeroath, are you dumb?" or something like that.
That's ok I've gotten yelled at for bringing out melted butter that wasn't melted enough. People need something to complain about.
