I remember when I was working as an AV tech in the late 80s, we always have waiters passing through our front projection set-up. I use to tell the Captain waiter that due to the powerful (250 ANSI Lumen) rays, it can cause infertility. They avoid the beam like a plague upon hearing that.

This drives me nuts. I hate it when the audience sends the waiter over while you are shooting. i understand they are the messenger but come on, i don't tap on them while they are serving food to the guests, why is it appropriate for them to tap on us while we are shooting...

I was shooting at a private residence the other day when someone approached me and introduced himself as a ex-bigtime videographer-producer. It started off as a freindly conversation about gear, but then turned into how people like me with digital cameras put him and his $20,000 analog camera out of business. When I asked him why he didn't just buy a digital camera he started complaining that he already spent his money on the $20,000 analog one.
After missing a decent shot of the bride (fortunately not a "must have" shot) I excused myself and walked away. A few seconds later I came back to where my equipment bag was and witnessed the father of the bride reaming out the wedding crasher who I thought was a relative (he was just a next door neighbor) and kicking him off the property.
