I could go on and on about all the different things I've done that have forced me outside of my little bubble, but I really just don't feel like it. Plus, this post is about this past weekend, not about the last 6 months of my life, or everything I was afraid of before that.
Now in the past, I either would have done nothing and sulked the whole time, OR I would have called stubhub and raised hell and screamed at them. I'm not exactly the best at letting things go.
I decided to call stubhub and talk to them calmly. I very calmly explained to the representative what happened and how the seats were misrepresented and I felt that we deserved some kind of compensation. She came back with 25% off the next tickets. I explained that that was a very nice offer but I felt like it was not enough considering how much I paid to stand behind the base of a giant baseball stadium light. So then she offered me 100% off the next tickets. We got a complete refund for the tickets we were currently using, which we used to buy tickets for Monday's game. I felt very vindicated. I was calm and forceful, and explained the issue very clearly. I felt like I was able to get what I wanted out of the conversation without having to be combative. Overall, I was very proud of myself for tackling the issue head on so quickly and calmly.
After everything was resolved, we decided to get some yummy Fenway franks and walk around the stadium for a while before standing next to the lawn on the other side.
THEN some guy comes up to us, looks around, then stops and offers us seats on the Green Monster!! Now for those of you who don't know anything about Fenway, the Green Monster is a giant wall in left field that is very unique to Fenway. At the real Fenway you can sit on top of it. At the fake Fenway, you can sit on top and also there are seats IN the Green Monster. Sure, we'll take free tickets.

Now to leave you with a few pictures of some real athletes we saw over the weekend.
