I have met some lovely animators over the years. First day in the hotel they come over one by one each finding out something different about you. Then one will come with the usual lines I like to go along with it then comes the sob story!!! I then say do you know how many times I've heard this I have been married to a Tunisian. They apologise and then I get treated very well for my stay!!! Of course not all are the same, but even if they are not when they begin the job it's not long before they cotton on.
To be honest I only spoke to one animator, one did introduce himself but they never quizzed me.
