Default How to get thrown out of our re-enactment club!

This one's not really a coworker per se and I witnessed most of this, so definitely a sighting.

1. Fail to stick around before or after events to help with the club display setup or pack down and simply pack your own stuff then drive off. (One of those instances was partially justified by the fact that it was a 4-5 hour drive for him otherwise, but he also did this at another event closer to home. We eventually got around this by the club president and our resident quartermaster [of sorts] boxing their cars in first, meaning that he couldn't leave until all the club gear was loaded)

2. When asked to help marshal or demo on the range, spend most of your time shooting rounds instead of y'know, helping.

3. Get into a dick-waving contest with the other male marshals on the range when called out for #2. (This eventually ended with the board designating one member our "head event marshal," meaning that his word is law at all future events )

4. When repeatedly warned NOT to shoot the target legs with bodkin points, use bodkin points on your arrows and shoot at the legs with a warbow. (we also had one instance where one of his arrows managed to go through the target and get stuck in the wood on the outer edge of the target.)

5. Be a general dick to the quartermaster who offered to help you make your kit.

6. And finally, out of absolutely nowhere in the club's social group chat on Facebook, make a few racist slurs, then when called out for it by one of the club members, get pissy and follow that up with a slur against disabled folks, which upset everyone else in the group.

Yeah...the rumour flying around is that he's gone to another club, who we have seen at events on occasion, but really don't do anything other than occasionally march around and look cool, whereas we actually get to do stuff. (The other club were more "Ancient" based, whereas we're more "Middle Ages") Either way, word gets around pretty fast, so chances are that he'll be deemed persona non grata from other clubs.

A few screenshots from his FB outbursts could hurry that along...

I'm brand new, but I know better than anyone else, so you all need to shape up and get used to it because I'm special.

Yeah, that never works out as well as in the movies.

Buh bye, loser!

That was unintentional I swear!

I just heard the term "dick-waving contest" from someone else describing a particular Pokemon anime episode and thought it applied equally well here.

Arguably, I'd say more that he's just lazy as hell, or is willing to do the fun stuff and not quite understanding that he needs to contribute in other areas. Next event, I am very tempted to shove him into our games tent.

Oh, there's other ways, mostly involving mundane police officers and at least misdemeanor charges, but damn, that's a pretty impressive list of stupid. Yeah, he's going to be punted from most groups (or beaten into submission). Either way, thankfully no longer your problem.
