This is half-rant, half-facepalm. I placed a band advert in local music shops for a drummer. Which is perfectly normal. However the replies I got seemed to fall into two categories: People who hasn't read the advert at all: These usually rang up saying "oh I can play shred guitar" and when told that we are an indie/rock covers band they skulked off. Completely incompetent drummers: Seriously, some of these guys were really bad. One of them got confused when I played in 3/4 time. I could have done better myself. Is it a trait that people don't read things properly?
