i had a problem with intoxicated IRT members as well. My friends and I got on the elevator at like...the 5th floor or something, and it goes down and a couple IRT members get on. A couple IRT members get on and said "partying on the elevator huh?" to which i thought he was just joking and i kinda chuckled about it. THen when we got off on the first floor, he pulls all of us aside, and starts yelling at us about how we shouldn't party on the elevator and that we can't ride it anymore. So we tell him that we weren't partying at all, and that we had just gotten on, to which the IRT member replies "then how did i catch you then?" I mean WTF? It was quite obvious that we weren't partying AT ALL, and we had just gotten on the elevator a floor above him, that's how he found us on there >>;; plus the fact that he didn't even believe that we weren't partying when we were dead serious, there were other people TELLING him that we weren't, and the fact that we really weren't partying! We then got bitched at even more and then our elevator privileges were taken away for the night, so we just left. It was ridiculous because the guy was obviously intoxicated.
Before that my friend dropped a leaf off of the balcony. I know that's not a good thing to do, and so he should rightfully of gotten talked to by the IRT members. My gripe with that is there were 7 or MORE IRT members that all came in a giant group just to tell him not to do that, and then warn him. Plus a head IRT member had to be there. Does it really take that many IRT members just to warn someone on their badge and tell him not to do that? Even if it was a LEAF that was dropped off? Because from what i hear there were way worse things being throw off the balcony which i think deserves a lot more IRT members talking to them. Not saying he shouldn't of gotten warned, because if it wasn't a leaf, or it hit someone, then someone could have gotten hurt. I'm just saying that i don't think it takes a head IRT member plus 7 others to come talk to him to tell him not to do it.
Not only that, but Saturday night i was walking around in my Leeloo costume, which is a bit...revealing, but every important part of my body was covered, and i made sure i wouldn't be flashing anyone with extra security measures. No IRT member talked to me at all about it, and i was passing them left and right, and i even talked to a couple of them or said hi. None of them told me to put on more clothes or to go get checked. But that night a couple of them came up to me while i was searching for a restroom and told me i had to put on more clothes. I asked them why because i had seen girls with even more revealing clothes on, some which even weren't costumes that had never gotten talked to, plus the fact that i had never been told to all throughout the day. They said i wasn't checked if it was okay and that they were trying to put a stop to cloth covered costumes. I just pulled out my hoodie and put it on, but it irks me because i had NEVER gotten talked to, PLUS when they said "i needed to get checked" i asked them where i could go do that, or how i should go about doing that and they never answered me. THey just said "oh, well we just want to put a stop to these kinds of costumes". After that was the leaf incident, and i was curious because the head IRT member was around i took off my hoodie to be back into my revealing leeloo costume. They walked right by me and said nothing. So now it just seems like those IRT members were just singling me out which frustrates me.
as I said, the IRT members do need to do their job, but things just bug me like that. Like i could understand no parties in the elevator, but when we told him we weren't, and other people were backing us up he did NOTHING but continue to yell at us. The leaf thing is the most understandable, but again does it really take 7 members to tell one guy off when he was being completely civil and wasn't drunk at all or getting out of hand? And then when girls were running around with tape over their boobs and underwear as a costume, I'm the one that gets yelled at finally on the last night that i was going to be running around in it? I wore my costume half of Friday and all of Saturday and that's when they tell me? I dunno, it just feels a bit ridiculous. My group of friends and I were doing NOTHING wrong the entire rest of the convention, and yet we were always getting dirty looks running around.
