This one may not be new, but it's new to me. Club owner tells my friend's band, "Look, you can play here, but I'm gonna have to take $350 off the top for the sound guy." friend: "We have our own soundguy." owner: "No good. Bringing in an outside guy will go against the deal I have with my guy." friend: If you have a deal with him, then YOU should pay him!" owner:"Tell you what, if you can gaurantee at least 170 people or more, I'll pay the soundman."
