How well do you deal with crowds? 2012-10-19 23:06:13 Reply

Sometimes crowds can be difficult to deal with. Whether it bed with a group of friends or a big concert or crowded city do you sometimes get uncomfortable or overhwelmed by the crowd?

Me? Well it depends I mean I handled Comic Con but by the same token I tried to stay away from places from the autograph area (as cool as would be) or the game demos.

Crowds are fine but holy shit I can't stand being stuck behind people who are walking as slow as possible to look cool or to talk to somebody when there are people coming the other way so you can't get around them.

As long as I don't see anyone being too disorderly, and as long as I don't feel too squeezed, I feel okay. After all, I've been riding crowded public transportation and hanging around crowded areas all my life. I still prefer to have plenty of my own space above all.

They're just people. What I hate is someone that can't handle being around populated areas.

I feel fine around crowds. But the only thing that ticks me off if they walk really really slow and won't move out of the way even though you said excuse me or please move.

I like to rock crowds.

I guess that means I feel pretty comfortable with them.


Yay, more jokes!

When I'm in the presence of any number of people I am usually angry and wish to be as far from them as possible.

I've gotten better since I've been attending more and more live shows. The energy and the pit of a particular Static-X concert was absolutely addicting. I began craving that heat and energy, and wound up in the process meeting some really cool people by focusing on the positive aspects of wading into a crowd, I've learned to ignore the bad. I've seen one bar fight, and it's really more of a confusing ordeal than it is dangerous...I'm a pretty big guy and I was excited to at least PARTICIPATE in the fight, but when it erupted, I didn't know who to punch, so I merely caught people who were pushed. lol fightfail...but that's not the point of crowds, and the idiots that started it were drunken cowards who ran off. The point of the crowd is to have fun, and it sucks when a selfish hammerhead goes and spoils it for everyone else.

I HAVE seen my fair share of suffocating environments when it's TOO packed. Most of the time these are bars/clubs I don't normally go to and the vast majority of these people are TOO drunk by the time I get there, too many pockets of women in crowded, amoebic pockets in this giant bio mass, and all the drunk dudes are trying their damndest not to stagger around, desperately glancing around like a clumsy meerkat. They're sweaty, winded, hammered, and frustrated. Shit can get tense, because the dumber they are, the more likely they'll try to instigate a confrontation over menial bullshit. I guess above all, the saying is "all things in moderation."

I still go to local rock shows, and it's neat to people-watch sometimes. I guess the only thing that bugs me is not being able to hear who I'm talking to very well, but I guess if I didn't like that, I should probably stop going to local rock shows....PFFFTTTT YARIGHT

One thing I know for sure is that I can't pee in front of people in a public bathroom. Trying to do so has lead to some pretty awkward moments.

Depends on how tightly packed the crowd is
If its a nice, loose, wandering around crowd, im perfectly fine.
If its a more tight, packed into a space crowd, i cant deal with that

Once I went to a club, and there were many people dancing up on me.

I ran away in tears..

I wish this was a joke :/

I am okay with crowds though sometimes I get lost in thought and accidentally bump into people or do something awkward

also at school when I see qt girls from my year level looking my way I get self conscious

That gets on my nerves like fuck, but even worse is when people drive UNDER the speed limit. There is always that one twat on the freeway going 55.

i'm okay with crowds depending on what they're for or who's in them.

holy shit this. the first time i saw a game at wembley there were hundreds of people lining up to pee in only a handful of bathrooms during halftime, it was like a test to see if you could pee in front of fifty odd men standing behind you annoyed because their bladder is about to burst and pissed because you're more focused on them than actually peeing.

fuck.

Totally fine unless it's like, a gig crowd, in which case as long as I haven't lost at least one person then I'm not so fussed. You can always regroup; just have a good time.

I'm fine with huge crowds where you are pretty much just breathing down some1 else neck but i'm terrible with crowds that are all separated into mini groups where you have enough room to freely do a big pelvis thrust but in those situations i usually just use the good old pretend to be reading text message trick or just walk super fast so i'd seem like i have somewhere to be.

I normally don't like crowds. Sometimes, though, I have to deal with them and just go about my business; such is life.

Well. I certainly don't fucking enjoy them, but I can piss in a public urinal, stand in a packed queue, do the monkey in a rave like it ain't no thang, and have no problem with sharing a seat on the bus. I pass all the tests, go me.

Large crowds annoy me but I can deal with them. I just like my space, it irritates me when I have to go out of my way so much to navigate around other people. Plus, large crowds tend to be pretty noisy and not in a good way. Like when there are a bunch of people all conversing at the same time and it sorta sounds like you're inside of a beehive. It just makes me more irritable for some reason. I generally prefer a more laid back, peaceful atmosphere. Although, concert crowds don't really bother me at all, I guess because the excitement of seeing a band/bands that I like keeps my mind off of the annoyances from the crowd.

It rarely bothers me. In fact, I actually wish I could go to something like Comic Con for a larger audience, becuase it would be so much fun. The only time crowds really bother me is when I'm driving around and there's so many of these spring breakers around that it takes you to an hour to get home from the beach. Trust me, I live in Panama City, I would know about that.

I do hate this a whole lot, though. I also hate being stuck behind slow drivers.

I work at Mcd's on the grave yard shifts, I can say serving a packed lobby of drunken people on a Saturday night is no walk in the park. Although because of this i have come to be able to deal with large crowds pretty normally and tolerate them on the other hand i also now hate them with a passion if nothing is anchoring me to the room and more than 5 people are in it i just tend to leave.

Crowds are okay but I hate it when more than one person tries to have a conversation with me.
