I’ve been getting into incredibly aweful parties recently. I don’t know what it is … but between 3 different parties I’ve gotten about 6k xp. This morning was probably one of the most hilarious of them all though. (Even more so than the experience with Felgar)
So I got an invite from Bader (a WHM) and I accepted. He tells me to message the leader, Melvine a SAM, about joining. So I hopped a chocobo and almost as soon as I get into the Sauromugue Champaign my router burped and I get DC’d. My wireless connection came back up and I got back on, I messaged Melvine to let him know that I’m on my way.
I got up to the entrance of the Citadel and Bader messaged me with “sorry, the party is full. Leader is a bad one T.T” WTF?! I messaged Melvine promptly with “you filled the party?” to which I got no response. GREAT! I thought, but a couple seconds later I got an invite from Melvine. Okay … so whatever. I headed into the Citadel and it took a good minute for Melvine to tell me where the heck they were (I even asked if they where down below hunting beetles or beyond the first banishing gate).
So I met up with them down below since they’re hunting chamber beetles and we began killing. Things went pretty well up until on one pull when we were going to open with a fuidama viper to plant the hate on the PLD tank.
Melvine came back with a beetle and didn’t provoke it … ok … so Bludsinn (the PLD) and I sat there at least hoping that Melvine would Tachi:Enpi at some point. No voke, no enpi … so then hate control went out the window and the beetle started bouncing around. That is when I got really irritated and did “MELVINE WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” Eventually the beetle was nearly dead when the hate stabilized (I think Bludsinn or someone other than Melvine provoked) and Melvine FINALLY busted out the tachi:enpi.
In the aftermath I asked Melvine what the hell he was doing and he got pretty defensive. He could not comprehend the simple concept of how to pull off an opening fuidama. I think he even uttered “the mob wasn’t facing the right way.” >.< So Bludsinn and I told Melvine that next time he needed to provoke before doing tachi:enpi so I could do my thing.
Fast forward to the next time we were going to attempt an opening fuidama. Once again Melvine didn't provoke and understanding that he wasn't Bludsinn provoked the mob just to keep some semblance of hate control. So I slid in behind Melvine and sat there waiting for him to tachi:enpi. Nope … didn't happen. So I did /disgusted Melvine to which he replied "One more time you use that command and you are out." OH! Well excuse me for your inability to understand how to fuidama.
What did I do? Well I disengaged the mob, did /disgusted one more time, disbanded and popped an instant warp out of there. I upset my fellow party members in doing this, but after talking to them in /t later on they didn't hold any ill-will towards me. They understood and agreed with the fact that Melvine was a complete tool.
As for the title … I mistakenly did a /t to Melvine thinking I was /t'ng Bader the WHM saying "I'm sorry. Melvine is a fucking idiot" *laf* I'm sure a GM would love to waste their time over that … but anyways.
Life as a thief is hard and frustrating.
