Ladies, in the end... who cares? Buy a Chevy, don't buy a Chevy, cry over your precious poster for 3 boys who couldn't care less about you. Sheesh, just get a life already!
I was just going to say, you are "too old."

But they will forget. Won't they?

I can - help me...it's a bit foggy... my days with Adam Ant and Duran Duran.
And later with my niece and NKOTB and N'Sync....

The worst was when my sister-in-law had the time wrong for the NKOTB concert, plus traffic --- they missed it.

*tears* "I will never ever forgive you mom!!"

Now they won't admit to going, so I write them letters from "NKOTB Fan Club" lol

You will feel better, girls. It just hurts now. I remember!

I'm more your niece's age than yours, my first concert was Debbie Gibson.

Thank goodness my parents also taught me some perspective, and that life wasn't all centered around teenybopper "drama". Some people in the world have true hardships, like not being able to afford clothes and food.

Hopefully these kids who evidently will need counseling over a poster will be taught perspective, too. ;)

I can't pick on her, because apparently I'm "Gay". Which, naturally, would preclude me from commenting on "theyre" lemming mentality. Nicoleee, here's some advice: When trying to sound adult, it is counter-productive to refer to someone's sexual orientation as a way to insult. That being said; I'm not gay, you're gay....no tag backs.

As a mom of an eleven year old, I was terribly dissappointed after the long hours and spending money to make these posters to possibly meet The Jonas Brothers and finding it impossible to enter the "Chevy Spotter" contest. It was terribly unorganized and unfair!!

Yeah, my friend & I got there at 11 AM to wait in the Chevy line. But then we found out when we got there that we weren't allowed in the venue until 4:30. They should've atleast announced it somewhere on a website or something that NO ONE was being let in until 4:30. So that was just ridiculous.

Then we were asking security which gate the contest would be held at, & they ALL said 2.
So my friend & I parked by Gate 2 when we were FINALLY let in at 4, & we went TO THAT GATE, then they said it was at ENTRANCE 2 to the arena.

We were SOOOOO mad.
We worked SOO hard on our poster. & once we saw the line, we didn't even bother entering. We basically just stood in line & watched people cry, bicker & even start physically fighting with others in line.

I just want to say that Chevy did NOT handle this the way they were supposed to.

Any other thoughts?

Yes. You've wasted entirely too much of your life on this non-issue.
