    Just as the title says, Last Sunday they send the new guy out of town for training, so me and the 1st shift guy have to cover his shift as well, THEN I have to be on call this weekend with a one hour response time and I have to be back to work at 10PM on Sunday - I'm posting this from work and will be here until around 10:30 tonight.

    Botcon is being held within an hour's drive from my fucking house and I can't go.

    So what is everyone else's excuse for sucking.

    I live in Canada--and it would be hard to convince my wife that our savings has to go to trip for me to go to a transformers convention....

    I just can't afford to go and continue to pay for stuff like food and student loans.

    Couldn't get off work..not paid time off anyway, and I can't afford to pay for the con and lose two days' pay. Getting the box set plus Tigatron from a board member though. Just need to get Megs and Bugbot.

    I'm a contractor with no paid-time-off; otherwise, I would have gone to Botcon.

    I'm only interested in new toy pictures which I can see from home at a much cheaper price.

    I had already gone to a wedding. Going on another(and farther) plane trip wasn't too appealing.

    I'm on call this weekend so I can go to a couple of concerts next weekend. Other than that I haven't worked up a desire to go to a con. yet. Perhaps next year.
