    Mish... I actually may be. Simple fact is this guy's fiance is a good kid (half his age, so yes... a kid) and I don't feel like punishing her just because her fiance is an asshat. However, this is also the guy who was telling my friend that professional photographers are full of **** because everyone has a camera phone and photographers are just overcharging for what anyone can do with the phone in their pocket... soooooooo... my thought is basically if he crosses a line with me, I'll likely give him one warning and then shut them down completely.

    As I'm typing this I'm really wondering why I still ever see this person.
    This guy obviously has no appreciation for art or creative aesthetics. This is a common trait in most folks with the mind frame that "art is easy."

    When you can't make or even appreciate art youre life becomes dull and cynical towards those who can.

    But there is an easy solution to this situation that you are obviously overlooking. He only thinks with the head that is not on his shoulders.

    This reminds me of a quote: "the man is the head but the wife is the neck and the neck can make the head move any way it wants."

    Get her on board with the program and you shouldnt have any problems.

    Or if that doesnt work you can give him a high five.....
