You may (or may not) be aware that tickets for RodeoHouston went on sale today.
Every year they have a great lineup of concerts, and this year is no different.
I entered how many tickets I wanted, and for what level. No problem.
Until I hit submit.
I got one of those word verification thingys, and a bunch of word verifications that were really hard to read. I swear I spent at least two or three minutes before I actually got one right. Fucking ridiculous. You'd think they'd screen the damn images or somehing.
After I finally got through that clusterfuck, I learned that their ticket server couldn't handle all the demnad and took FOREVER to search up tickets. After waiting 15 or 20 minutes, the server just fucking dropped me, and I had to start all over.
Oh. Fucking. Yay.
So I repeated the process.
That time, after about 20 minutes, I got told that there was nothing that matched my request, which had been for a certain level.
So I repeated the process and got dropped again.
At that point, I said fuck it, I'll try in a little while.
So I tried about a half hour later.
This time, it still took about 10 minutes to dig up the tickets, but I got them and checked out without a hitch.
Which is more than a friend of mine who was going after George Strait tickets can say. He never got those tickets.
In concluson, I'd like to send a big FUCK YOU to Ticketmaster for making my morning (And the mornings of many others) more stressful than they need to be.
As far as where they can go.... do I really need to say?
