Yay or Nay?

see the way it works is since i went last year i've been invited back by the merchants cause i bought lots of wine last year. It's 6 bucks at the gate, but i have many invitations and instead of giving them away i could sell them for 10 bucks (one invitation gets 2 people in) and you get 2 beautiful wine glasses with your invite. i dont think anyone would ever dream of doing it, i cant imagine tkt scalpers at a salon. It just seem so ridiculously funny to try it, and cash is so hard to come by, why the hell not? I cant imagine it being illegal..

True.

I could ask for French citizenship, but I don't see any value in it. Technically any American who obtains another passport is supposed to give it up to INS. I can just see myself having to give up my passport at INS and having to apply for a greencard when all the relatives I know have American citizenship. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

If i scalp the tkts, then i could afford to buy some wine.

It would be so funny, i cant imagine anyone ever scalping tkts to a salon de vin, it would be very ludicrous!

sorry, i'm not really concerned about your decision. I'm just wondering what kind of guy starts so many weird threads about his obscure personal affairs on a board where few people are liable to be interested. I didn't think you are French, because i find your obsessive self-absorption very American in style. Anyway carry on, don't mind me.

I'll just chalk you up as another butthead on the board who has nothing interesting or funny going on in their life and enjoys taking swipe and people (wierd as they may be) who do, ah ha, loser :lol:

oh ok. And i would be rigth if i called you a self-centered, attention-seeking female who has nothing better to do than to tease people and aggravate much of the board, you use bad language, curse like a sailor and call people ugly and bald. But I still like you ok. how many threads just go up and nobody responds? my bad threads should just die, but why attack me about it? joking about scalping tkts at a wine fair is bad but other strange and discussion threads are good?

you were not joking about the scalping.
you're just saying that cause othe rppl aren't responding the way you would have liked.
and calling someone who is bald, bald, is ok in my book :lol:
i ain't attacking you by the way, i'm informing you.
no one cares about what you post.
whatever police/youth/race/religion matter is going on in france, ppl who care, know where to look for the news thereselves.

and the threads you don't like, are at least funny or cool.
your threads are just getting old.

i'm not self-centered by the way, and couldn't care less about attention

[color=navy]you were not joking about the scalping.

Well yes I was. How much money could i make, 50 bucks, if lucky? It's funny, people who go to wine fairs are often wealthy, what kind of loser would scalp tickets to a wine fair?

you're just saying that cause othe rppl aren't responding the way you would have liked.

No. i can imagine if i am THAT annoying I could ruin someone's day, i dont want to do that.

and calling someone who is bald, bald, is ok in my book :lol:
i ain't attacking you by the way, i'm informing you.
no one cares about what you post.

Why is calling someone bald (and ugly) ok to U. If nobody cares than nobody cares, good.

whatever police/youth/race/religion matter is going on in france, ppl who care, know where to look for the news thereselves.

OK :confused: Samsung starts threads about France, im not really getting your point here.

Well yes. It depends on how you define scalping.

Scalping as far as i know is when you sell a tkt to an event at a higher than market value. Seeing as id only be selling invitations, which were not purchased, im thinking as long as i sell them below the 12 euro market value i'd probably be ok. More than that the POLICE would probably piss their pants and only laugh at Americans (if they knew i was american), cause "only an american would try to turn a dollar at a wine fair for crissakes". But i cant see them booking me for that.
