There is definitely people that are scared of posting in this thread, and many subsequent threads I think. Some threads have a much chiller atmosphere, and some are like the "popular girls" in high school that that thought they were hot shit, but really didn't understand that Rocawear and Timberland boots were ghetto.
I understand waiters fear even less than I understand lounge fear.
I think this isn't fear of "lounge" or fear of "waiters"...it's fear of diving into a totally new social group. It's like walking into lunch on the first day of a new school and not knowing where to sit.
imo, it's not fear per se. I decided to lurk in the octobers waiters thread because it seemed like a lot of the regular posters were already really close (irl too). I didn't want to butt in and more importantly I didn't really care for keeping in touch/talking/etc with random people I didn't know in the first place. this time I know a few people I'm genuinely interested in talking to and want to keep updated on.
but then again, I'm just speaking for myself.
