The Rambling Taoist: A Deafening Silence

As I close to my sixtieth birthday, I’m nonetheless amazed on the impoliteness of some individuals.  A current scenario illustrates this frustration to the max.

I function the [unpaid volunteer] Manufacturing Supervisor for KOSW 91.3 FM in Ocean Shores, Washington.  We’re all the time working to develop new methods to work together with our listeners and the general neighborhood.  We held an occasion yesterday that achieved these ends.

I hatched an thought to host a Chubby Bunny Problem stay on the radio.  I acquired the thought from Cassidy Quinn’s vlog that I used to subscribe to.  She posted a video of her personal Chubby Bunny Problem versus her dad and it was funnier than hell!

Ms. Quinn is an Leisure Reporter for KGW-TV (NBC affiliate) in Portland, Oregon.  Because it so occurs, Portland is 3 hours or much less from Ocean Shores.  We acquired to considering, “Why not invite Cassidy Quinn to participate in our occasion?”  It might symbolize a win-win scenario: She could be put within the highlight and, perhaps, garner new YouTube subscribers and our radio station would get a bit of press from it ourselves.

We realized on the outset that getting Cassidy was an extended shot.   KOSW is a small rural station and Ms. Quinn is a really busy younger lady.  However heck, it was price a shot.

And so, we began a really public marketing campaign on our station’s Fb web page.  We obtained a really enthusiastic response from our personal deejays and the listening public at massive.  Untold numbers of individuals emailed or texted her.  Invites to return to Ocean Shores had been left within the feedback part of her YouTube vlog and on her Fb web page.

She didn’t reply to a single one in every of them!!  Not one.

This amazes me as a result of she continuously invitations individuals to contact or work together together with her.  Whereas many public figures disguise their contact data, she offers a large number of how to get in contact together with her.  And although we utilized most, if not all, of those avenues, all we obtained for our efforts was silence!

Close to the top of the week, my spouse despatched her yet another personal e mail.  Della wrote that each one we actually needed at this level was SOME acknowledgement.  Even telling us to go F… O.. would tell us that she had observed the invitations.

However no response was forthcoming.  Our opinions of her have modified attributable to this non-interaction.

It under no circumstances dampened our Chubby Bunny Problem.  We already had a contingency plan.  We blew up an image of her face and affixed a stick with the again of it.  One among our DJs role-played Cassidy Quinn to the delight of these attending.  After watching hours upon hours of her movies and “borrowing” audio snippets from them, we performed a stay “interview” with Ms. Quinn that was completely hilarious.

We had nice attendance and, due to the numbers, we ended holding one contest for adults and one other for kids.  The grownup winner someway stuffed 12 marshmallow peeps in her mouth and the child’s winner managed 7.  I acquired a stomachache merely calling the motion!!

All in all, it was a fantastic occasion and a fantastic day.  

Nonetheless, I am very peeved with one Cassidy Quinn!!  All she needed to do was ship one observe stating one thing like, “Hey of us, I am actually flattered by all of your optimistic consideration, however I’ve plans for that weekend” and nobody would have held it towards her.

However she selected not to do this.  No, she selected to do nothing.  And that silence proved deafening.
