Default Using Good Manners Around Special Guests

Today, Jaocybearguide spent a great deal of time and did a storytelling for the citizens of BABV. You all know how difficult it is to speak in BABV, so telling a story from a real book, is quite a challenge. He told the entire story of "Jack and the Beanstalk" in BABV Bear Speak.

A story that should have taken him under an hour to tell, took almost two hours. Why? All the excess chatter and interrupting. And the people who come into a room and right away want to trade. This crowd wasn't as bad as some but it was still frustrating and he almost stopped a few times.

So, when you are around the special guests of BABV, be on your best behavior and remind your friends that they should be also. The side chattering gets very distracting and the chat log scrolls by too fast and the guests can not keep up with the conversations.

We want to the guests to continue to visit and if we are on our best behavior, maybe they will visit more often.

Thank you Jaocybearguide. That was an outstanding storytelling and well worth sitting through.

I know to tell the story is quite challenge for him. We shall respect what he is doing for us. Believe me, it is hard. One day Hannahcybearguide was sick and people decided to tell bed time story for her. I made a story. but it was so hard in a limited conditon. He is working very hard for us.

We shall listen to (read) his story with good attitude

Wow, nicely said, JessBear Hug. Storytelling in BABV is hard. The words are so stubbourne. I storytell in real life, at my school there is a "Strorytelling contest" And I have competed for 3 years. I am a very good storyteller and actor. The first year, the story had to be over 3 minutes long, and I probably would have won if it was over 3, but It wasn't. The second year, I won. And this year, the third year, I won. I will also try next year!

But anyways, all the cyber guides are really nice, and i hate it when people try to talk to any of them in a situation like that.

Every time I have been to Story Time, someone is doing something wrong. One time, Jao politely asked a girl to sit down, but she refused and stood up at the front saying "Hi, Hannah!" and "Bye, Hannah!" for ten straight minutes. During "The Frog Prince", he had to ask us several times if we were listening, which most of the audience was not doing.

If you don't want to listen to the story, you don't have to. Leave politely and let that be the end of it.

I went to story time last week, and I stood in the back because all the seats were taken. There was a girl sitting in the teacher chair and she yelled at me to sit down when Jao was telling a story. I politely told her that there were no empty seats and then she yelled 'sit down friendly!!' She kept on saying that and I didn't want her to keep interrupting Jao so I just left.

I have never been to storytime, but it sounds neat. It would be great if BABV could post a little note during storytime to remind everyone to be polite.
The people interrupting may not even know that it is storytime. I would hope they would be more polite if there was a little sign to tell them.

nicely well done jessbearhug! i don't like it when people try to interrupt you, even when you want to tell a great story or singing a song.

It very well is hard to tell stories...
1) we can't say various words

2)All the chit-chat that is going on!
Sometimes when you talk in between someone's story, like jao's can tell them you don't like their story!
