I'm confused. Did they actually do anything wrong besides make you uncomfortable?

Thanks for sharing the info and photo, Al. The other night a friend of Alex's brought a guy into the space and I was not comfortable with him or with her judgment in letting him in. In retrospect I wish I had asked them both to leave. I think it is important to give people tours and welcome them into the space, but not if they are drunk off the street, seem kind of mentally unstable, and want a place to hang out -- they can go to a bar for that. So, I'm going to practice saying things like, "I'm not comfortable letting you into the space... I'm asking you to leave now." If I do that I will get backup from others in the space. - Liz On 7/9/11 1:44 AM, Al Sweigart wrote: > By the way, if you see this guy at the space, tell him he has to > immediately leave the space and is not welcome back and don't hesitate > to dial 911 for the police.
