Saturday Confessional

While stage managing for the Civic Orchestra is one of my favorite events each season and I love house managing for various concerts, the amount I know about classical music could not even fill the 'u' in 'fuck all'

Case in point: last year I was house managing for a youth symphony event. I was instructed to let in late arrivals at the end of each movement. I had at least 10 parents crammed into the alcove between the outer and inner doors so they could at least hear their little darling play. Every time, EVERY time there was a pause in the music I would reach for the door and one of the moms would murmur "Not yet."

This went on for at least 10 minutes, I shit you not. I still can't believe none of the parents took advantage of my ignorance to slip in early.

This is an absolutely brilliant & inspired line.

*snicker* I am vastly surprised. I used to have parents RAIL at me if I didn't let them in if they showed up late. *once in a rare while we'd let the REALLY nice ones into the booth. But that was usually parents who'd come from out of state to see their kid*
