"Your (clueless) kid is getting a free sketch from some of the finest illustrators and artists on the planet. That Italian guy behind the table is 50 years old, doesn't speak english that well, and is known for drawing a comic called Hellblazer, okay? He's not that familiar with Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon."

You know . . . I felt the same way you did till our son was born. Prior to that, I was always cranky when I saw a kid act up in public: "Why can't those parents control him" I used to think. Now, with our son 3 years and a few months, I realize that the world revolves around him, not me. While I agree that rudeness is unacceptable, I'd stand in line happily for 12 hours for that beautiful little boy. I'm not impatient any more - nothing is that important except his happiness. And the 50 year old Italian guy . . . well, he was a kid once too.
