Rejected by the Blanton

I am looking for volunteer opportunities here in Austin.  The UT Blanton Museum of Art seemed like a good idea.  So, I did all the training including 2 guided tours.  I was told that asking good questions was important, so I did so.  I also commented on some small mistakes that tour guides made.  My comments and corrections were done politely and were accurate. 

I am now told that there the guides made a total of 3 complaints about my behavior and that I am not welcome at the Blanton. 

I encourage anyone reading this post to visit the Blanton and ask the guides serious questions. Possibly you can piss them off without getting thrown out like I did.
