Do (Not) Meet Your Heroes

If, as is commonly adjudicated, meeting one's heroes primarily results in disappointment, most readily displayed by said heroes' poor personality, politeness, understanding, or lack of all three, one must come to one of two conclusions, either:

A) Most "heroes" are disappointing as people
B) Most everyone is disappointing

The latter suggests a sort of universal misanthropy that the present author strives to avoid, but the former is, insidiously, almost as cynical, as it suggests that we continually propel those to stardom the least deserving of it.
