OT. Why does everyone stand by us when we strike?

This is off track but I am stumped.
It seems that every time we tear down or strike a large event, guest speakers and clients like to stand right by the mixer console while we are attempting to clear and wrap the gear. We can be in a large hall the size of a football field and yet they still stand on our cables.

Are they trying to hang with the Cool people or what?

Pardon me, can you lift your left foot? You are standing on my snake.

Glad to see this post! I thought it was only happening with video crews. I have been saying this for years after doing a pageant or church function or dance recital it was happening to me. The camera tripod seems to become a beacon for a meeting. Like you say the room or hall can be empty and people congregate at my tripod! Especially love it when they start putting the kids coats on and flailing there arms around. Then you say excuse me and the look at you like you are in the way or disrupting their conversation. Going to try Ty's idea, he has been right on with everything else he has taught me about audio.


Later

Tom

Maybe
