Yep, had that experience more than once. So now? I just keep to myself.
I'm sorry that your experience wasn't positive.. You can be assured that if you ever see my lime tag, and you come up to me, I will welcome you and have a friendly chat with you!

DW and I had the same bad experience -- we recognized a LGMH in the line for BTMMR in front of us, and when DW said "Hey another Dis'r" the response back was "Do i know you, do you post in my threads, why would i care if you were on the Dis or not?"

as the "dis'r" didn't have a name tag we had no idea who they were or wheter we posted on their threads or not..

I suspect that a lot of people come here to find out how to get free things, and think the LGMH will help with that and thats all.

I'm just surprised that they are rude and mean like that.. It make me think that they are the ones who like to stir things up around here..

I'm sorry bdoyledimou that it happened to you too.

Wow. That is crazy that someone would react like that. I was able to find some LGMH at my HD because we are decorating our room and door. We were planning on figuring out a way to make some buttons out of them as well to wear while we are there.

I like the idea of putting the maple leaf on them and maybe the DIS logo or username though. I am a friendly person by nature so I usually strike up conversation with most people while we are waiting in lines.

I had the LGMH on my backpack and my purse this past April and no one said hi. I also looked for other DISers, but didn't see any. I did meet a fellow DISer one year in the food line at Flame Tree in AK when I offered to help carry their food since she was in a wheel chair and her DH had a cane. We ended up sitting rather close and chatted off an on while eating our meal. She gave me a LGMH with her Dis name and her website on it.

I cannot believe someone would advertise the fact that they're on the DIS and then not want to at least say hi when someone approached them let alone going so far as to be rude!! That makes no sense to me. So sorry it happened to several of you.

I used to attach a GIANT (like size of my head) LGMH to DD's stroller. It had my screen name on one side and "DISboards Rock!" on the other side. I was approached a couple times, once by a DISer I knew which was awsome! (MrFDNY).

I haven't done that a while, but I did randomly talk with a few DISers at the park!

You'd think that someone with a LGMH would want to chat! People are so weird.

A friend and I play "Spot the DISer" in WDW. We see someone we think is a DISer. If we are able to chat them up and find out, we get (or lose) a point. There are many stupid rules to our game. LGMHs are an automatic point.

Same here! In our Home Depot the paint samples are right across from the counter where the guy mixes up paint. When I walked in and made a bee line to the Mickey Head samples, he always laughed and made a comment about "going to WDW again?" He is really nice and a few times they'd be running low and he'd say "let me see if we have any underneath in the cabinet" then he'd give me a whole handful telling me to keep them for the next trip as no one ever really wanted them to use as real paint samples anyway. Thankfully, I still have a bunch. I use a couple each trip. I write very small anyway, so always write my ADRs, times, and confirmation numbers on a couple, cut them out, laminate them together back to back, poke a hole in an ear, and put a luggage tag thingy through it, then hang it on my park bag. It makes it easy to identify me as a DISer, plus keeps my ADRs handy.

When I was there this past Nov/Dec I saw a leather lime green Mickey head key chain hanging in that little kiosk in Canada. They engraved my name on it and I plan to hang it on my park bag now. It's really cute, plus it's lime green.

I can't beleive that they would advertise they were on here and then not want to talk. That is definitely very rude!
I will have my LGMH this year for sure and I will make sure the family does also! NOw just to figure out how to attach it to my stroller without it bothering DH.

I have to say that my dd is the queen of spotting the LGMHs!!! She can spot one at 20 yds!!! It's really funny.
I will most likely have one hanging off me someplace when I go in early Dec. Since I haven't seen anything DIS-sponsored going on, there probably won't be nearly as many DISers there as usual. But, I will say hi to those with them on. Stop and say hi if you see me!!!

My last trip I wore a LGMH on my cross body bag, but nobody said anything to me. It would have been nice to have a chat with a couple DIS members around the parks. I also didn't notice anyone with a LGMH in the parks.

I did, however, notice them in people's resort room windows. We are at POP on our last vacation and I saw them as decoration in people's windows, which was nice!

I'll have one with me again this year while I'm out and about - please don't be shy! And ... I'm nice, definitely won't snap at anyone!

BTW - The LGMH are in abundance at The Home Depot's in and around Toronto if anyone is looking in the area!

I hope they still have those LGMH at my home depot. I saw them before but didn't pick any up because I have no reason to- we didn't have any Disney trip planned. Now that we do, I would like to get one of those. When I have time today, I'll check it out, if they are still have them.

Funny thing...I've been on these boards since before there was a LGMH! It used to just be lime green - most people did ribbon or a shirt. Seems like a loooooong time ago!

I made my own LGMH on our trip in January and attached it to my bag in the parks. Nobody said hi and I didn't notice anybody else who was a DISer. Maybe it was because it was a slow time of year? We are going in October for F&W and FD this year so hopefully we will see more DISers! Maybe I will even decorate our window.
