I feel the same way about it. I will admit that I enjoy seeing an actor as I'm passing by, carrying on with my life (they do a LOT of filming up here), but I couldn't imagine going out of my way to spy on one, in part because what's the point and in part because I would feel just too guilty about intruding on someone's life like that.Originally Posted by myrosiedog;2220593;
I've also felt the same way about people standing around to gawk at crime scenes or ongoing crimes. A number of years ago there was a hostage situation going on in the bank across the street from my office. The street was cordoned off to keep traffic out, but there were literally 5,000 people milling around outside for about 6 hours while this was going on. I encountered a similar situation a couple of years later when a robbery in a jewellery store in the downtown mall went wrong and escalated into a hostage situation. Again, countless hordes standing around gawking through the window of the store trying to get a good look. I don't know what irked me more about these situations - that these people apparently don't have a life, or that they were impeding police and medical personnel, or that they were risking their own lives and so consequently endangering the lives of police and medical personnel and potentially putting their families and friends through hell. Dolts.
