Did you guys know they existed? I didn't!!! Till today at GC, and let me tell you, if i wasn't 20 and a firefighter one 12 year old kid would have several less teeth. Here's what happened:

I was playing a jackson sitting alone by myself. Volume was low, i could hear, and maybe for about 20 ft you could hear softly.

This kid walks up to the wall, grabs a guitar and plugs in. He then cranks his volume so the store could hear.

I get kinda annoyed, but im like w/e, i was probably an asshole when i was 12 too. I slightly roll my volume knob so i can actually HEAR myself. Which prompts him to crank his volume EVEN louder. So i get up, put the guitar and cord away, and go to the Pianos.

I sit at the best piano and I play Beethoven's Sonata Patetique. About 4 mins in the kid walks over, sits at the piano adjacent to me and starts staring me down. He watches me, like an owl intent on a field mouse for like 2 mins. Then he opes his mouth and this comes out:

"I don't like it. I mean, i just don't think Bach is good...everyone says he's great, but i think he's just barely decent...ughhh...I mean, your playing is O-K (the way he said Okay REALLY made me want to BACKHAND the **** out of him)."

To which i reply by looking at him without missing a note and conversateing with him (all without missing a note - i don't have to look at the keyboard as i play, but i usually do anyway). Anyway, run-on sentences are awesome, but i said:

"Well, while i think Bach is overratted as well, he is still an exceptional composer...(I pause speach for around 5 seconds but never stop playing)...but this is Beethoven."

He says "Oh yeah, well i can never tell all those old guys apart, they all suck anyway."

So i ask "Do you compose?"

"No, but i am really good at guitar"

"And what do you play?"

He rattles off some standard guitar players.

I reply: "Most of those guys would not have written any of their music if not for those 'old guys' as you called."

"Yeah, but the difference is they have no compassion, no emotion, no TECHNIQUE."

I ring out a the next note, sit up completely straight (i weigh 200lbs of almost solid muscle) remove my hands from the keys (while keeping the sustain depressed) and look him dead in the eye:

"What do you know about Beethoven?"

"uhh..." (his jaw kinda drops, his bottom lip sticks out and he looks kinda like Goofy)

"Well, Beethoven was deff. Meaning he couldn't hear. How could someone compose SO many beautiful pieces WITHOUT hearing and use NO emotion?"

I resume playing, his response:

"uhh...well...look, he just sucks OK! I don't make the rules."

I know i am visibly angry now, i am missing notes and timeing. I'm sure my face is red and eyebrows are down. I am a classically trained violinist of 7 years, so ignorant people insulting classical kinda upsets me. Intimidation didn't work, so i try ignoreing him. I finish the piece, get up, and go back to the guitars. He says:

"Well aren't you gonna listen to me play?"

"No, im gonna go play guitar now."

As I walk off i hear him start "Fur Elise" (BEETHOVEN!!!). I pick up the same jackson i had and plug in, I begin to play Master of Puppets. Of course he had to have the keyboard cranked just like the guitar, so i heard the whole thing anyway. He didn't even play the whole song. He just played a beginner arrangement of the song. He walks to me and asks:

"Did you hear?"

"Well, seeing as how you had the volume to max, i believe the parking lot probably heard."

"Yeah, i like for people to know how awesome i am!"

"Oh, Okay..." I say that without a hint of sarcasm. I don't want to hurt the kid...i mean for all i know he is beaten daily by his parents and music is his only escape.

He goes and gets a guitar and starts to elbow me in the side - as i am PLAYING. Not hard, like he's trying to get my attention, ya know. I turn around and *almost* succeed at not yelling at him:

"WHat?!!?!?!?!!"

To which he replys by swinging his guitar from the neck like a pendulum and saying in a falsetto voice:

"U WANNA JAM?!!!?"

I SWEAR i was gonna punch this kid in the chest and simultainiously break all his ribs. So i had to leave. I HAD to. Did i do the right thing? I mean, on one hand he could've been just trying to piss me off (trolling). But then again, like i mentioned he could just be a lonely kid with music as his only outlet. What do you guys think? Similar occurances?

Wow, what an asshole-ish kid. I too, hate it when people have no respect for classical music, as I enjoy it myself.

i say yes. although he really pissed you off, you didnt hit him, you just walked away.

if you had struck him, then you would have one hell of a lawsuit against you

A real life troll would club you in the head and drag your lifeless body under his bridge where he would slowly eat you limb by limb. What you ran into was a typical arrogant child. The two are quite easily distinguishable.

but that is how 10-13 year olds act now, i know i'm not perfect but i try to not get in anyone's way or be rude. this story reminds me of how my 11 year old sister acts on a daily basis though especially the "i'm awesome" part

If you're getting that bothered by dumb children while you're shopping, it's probably best you just go home rather than get bugged.

And if the threadstarter thinks he's Mozart then I see no reason not to let him enjoy his delusion.

you mentioned that youre twenty years old, "almost solid muscle", and seem to be a pretty good musician. this kid probably thought you were the coolest guy ever. and arguing with you was a sure fire way of getting you to talk to him. yeah he was annoying, and im not saying you should have appeased him or even stayed there, but just remember, he probably looked up to you.
#36
you did the right thing. you just have to ignore assholes like that. People just cant appreciate certaing genres of music, like jazz, classical, polka, or anything thats not mainstream
