Yes it is true, there are people who cringe and say, “Really, you’d be willing to STAFF? I just want to sell my pilot.” You meet them at the worst parties. They often don’t have a clue how TV writing actually works...
So they don’t know that saying that to someone who’s been support staff for ten years in the hopes of getting a chance to be staffed feels like throwing a drink in their face.
And then to salt the wound they’d ask how staffing (gross, it tastes bad in their mouth to even say it!) is going for you, and you’d have to explain that without a rep it’s not. And then you’re very tired, in your bones.
