ASAP?

Post by Sierra_Nevada » Fri Feb 13, 2009 1:00 pm

:?: I had a player that kept saying asap and would not tell me what it meant. No one else at the table would tell me. Could someone enlighten me as to what this means in cards?

Hi there , i cannot say in card terms what it means but i can say what it means worldwide in the real world, maybe it will help or give ya a clue. As Soon As Possible

Now as i have said, i have never heard it used in a term in cards but its used everyday in letter's and such things.

I agree with MoD there and would be the standard meaning of "ASAP"... now I am sure someone could come up with a new meaning for it but for the majority of people it would retain it's original meaning.

Some players get irate if others don't play fast enough to suit them. Frankly I ignore such comments, though there are extreme cases of slowness that are rediculous. Still, you don't know everything that factors into a player's slow play, and I consider such comments rude and unwelcome.

Best to ignore them altogether.

I just love when players call for a guide because so-and-so is slow. I think the guide should just boot the complainer.

Some people are so impatient that when God was handing out Brains they thought he said trains and went to catch one.... would have paid off to wait and make sure first...

JUST DUST

PS - But your right, if you are overly impatient in a game (and have seen many in the years here) you haven't got time to play in the first place and should go do what your supposed to be doing anyways...

I will mention on the other hand there are those that are cooking dinner, feeding the dog, petting the cat, changing diapers, looking for love online, and picking their nose while trying to play and...

There are those that do have a disability that does not allow them to play at the speed some may require...

I personally choose not to make a scene when it comes to any of the above and if it does bother me I just choose to find another game without them, yep I can wait until that game has finished without saying anything mean or nasty, even being an Ogre!!! Oh I may zap them a time or 2, but I feel that is a good reason for the zap. I will not zap someone with a legit reason, well maybe just for the fun of it...

Hopefully not at the same time! Especially hope they don't have their webcams turned on. :lol:

In normal language, yes, it means as soon as possible.

As it relates to cards, i've always heard it means "a sorry ass player". Guess you'd have to be there to see which interpretation fits at the time :lol: .

Well in that case I would choose to ignore them and if you know you are a much better player than an "ASAP" then they are "FoS" and you can leave it at that...

JUST DUST

PS - Yes you can figure out what "FoS" means...

It's NOT "Freedom or Salvation"

If its in a "public room", (Smoots, Gnomes, etc) I would have to assume they mean 'as soon as possible'. In a League? Hmmmmmm, maybe the 'sorry player' variety.

There is Nothing Worse than have a Player JOIN a Tour and then leave after 1'st game/b4 Tour is OVER ! If you dont have the time dont sign the line (partner). IMHO, when you AGREE to Pard some1, its a contract.
