» Stuff I've found

I found a copy of the score for 'The Mikado'
On a table outside a café in Soho. it had a BookCrossing sticker in the front of it, which meant it had been left out deliberately for somebody to find.
The groovy thing was, I found it while I was on my way to buy a copy of that same score, as I had recently been cast in a production of the show.
Coincidence? Yes, of course. But what a coincidence! Plus, it saved me a tenner. Woop!

» Clients Are Stupid

I used to work
in an open air theatre in Greece where there were more standing tickets than seated tickets. The most frequently asked questions were:

Q: Is it air-conditioned?
A: Well, yes, and no. You see, it has no roof, sir...

Q: Standing? What's that?
A: It's what you're doing now, madam, except you're watching a play.

Made me clench my teeth in frustration every time I heard them.

cheap petrol
my mate's dad will only buy his petrol from the station with the absolute cheapest price.
fair enough, you might say, but he also works out, with a calculator, the cheapest tank of petrol including how much petrol he will use to get to the petrol station he chooses.
