smile: $500 in one weekend @__@;; Way more than I woulda made working the deli this weekend.
I realized last night I still didn't have a crew call time for today. I got up early and called Bossman and he had crewed someone else.
It's upsetting because I was with him all yesterday at the transmitter from 7am-2pm when he was crewing for CSS. He asked me at 8am if I could run cam, I said yes, anything you need Bossman. apparently at 10am he sent out a mass email looking for camera ops out of espn3 crew. (I didn't know this cuz I didn't check my email on my phone. I don't use my phone when I'm working. period.) I work with engineer on the transmitter all day, ask Bossman again if he had a crew call time. Nope. I figured he was waiting on CSS and so I left and went to work at the deli at 2pm. Heard nothing.
I don't understand why he asked me to do it, just to go and crew a kid named Ryan for it.
I had to email him back and ask him why. I can't stand not knowing why on this. Wtf Bossman.
I lied and said I wasn't upset, but I am. He HAD a crew call time. He just fuckin' let me go to work thinking he didn't.
I mean WHAT he thinks Ryan does a better job than me on fuckin' Handheld camera??
NO, he doesn't. He misses shots. He shoots way too tight when game play is right in front of him. I've done replay when he's on camera and he fuckin' misses shots giving me no replays. I showed up for ALL of the games, Ryan didn't show up for even half and he was on high cams more than he ran handheld. I've had way more time and experience on handheld cameras than he has. I don't miss. I'm the one who practiced shots hours before the games. I'm the one who watches Basketball to study what kind of floor cam shots get taken. Ryan hasn't put in even a fraction of the effort I have.
Why crew Ryan when I gave him my confirmation?
