I have an ethical question for everyone. I was playing some pinball at the local barcade here. This is a place that has a bunch of 80's video games, skeeball, good selection of beer and ten pinball machines. The machines are not prestine by any means but it is cheap to play so I don't mind.
I have yet to reach rule the universe on AFM so I wanted to give it shot. The machine isn't level left/right so it makes it challenging to hit the saucer from the right flipper. I'll admit that I had been on the machine for a good hour. I saw this guy come up briefly like he might want to play but then he plays IJ. So I keep playing and about 15 minutes later he taps me on the shoulder and says "Are you going to let anyone else play? You have been on there forever."
So I stop and mention how I thought he was playing another machine. He says "I don't mean to be rude but it is completely inconsiderate to play one machine so long." Ok, so now I'm annoyed but I don't want to get kicked out of this place. I offer to let him play in with me and he says that he doesn't want to play in, he wants the machine. I'm laughing because he is either socially blind or a complete dick. I tell him I'll finish my credits out and I introduce myself and get his name. Again, I couldn't be much nicer about it.
I had about 6 credits in so about 30 minutes later I still have a couple. He is next to me playing TAF and I offer to let him jump in on the last game. Perhaps this is just a misunderstanding... He says "I can't believe you are still on this game" in a total dick tone. Right, I should apologize for being a decent player?
Anyway, finished my credits and left. I feel sorry for people who are clearly sad with their life. So here is the question?
Was it wrong for me to put a bunch of credits in one machine?
I arrived at this place when it opened and there was nobody there. I had no idea he was waiting on the machine. When he said he wanted to play, I offered to let him play in but I didn't want to leave the machine. We are not talking about a high end pinball bar here. This is 80's barcade. If it was the local pinball bar then I would understand the annoyance.
I tried to report this as accurate as possible. So were my actions wrong? Just curious to see what people think.
