    The scary thing Robert I know this is not far from the truth and that is just downright scary.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Ha! No, I'd have to write a different script for forum sales...just kidding.

    This does stretch things a bit in terms of retail store sales, but not as far as one might think!

    You mean like this:

    How many are you getting
    Where am I on the wait list
    When are you getting stock
    How come Amazon has it and you don't
    How come B&H has it in stock and you don't
    I'm impatient.
    Can you hand deliver it

    Yes Terry, those and some along these lines:

    'Please send me the tracking number'
    'I ordered at 7pm can you ship it today?'

    And this one is always fun : HAHA

    I'm sitting in a lobby in Jackson hotel laughing my head off and people are looking at me and running away...

    I've gotten telephone calls asking the same dim-whitted questions and I don't evern sell camera gear.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Oh my goodness ... I've actually heard every one of those ... no joke.

    Real story: Last minute Bride shows up at my studio in a beat up 10 year old Honda, cries a river about costs while pulling pockets inside out. Chisels down the price to bare bones, which I accept since I had the day open anyway ... better to shoot than sit on my fat principles all day.

    Arrive at the mammoth gilded reception site, 400 guests, 20 piece big band with 4 singers, flowers like I've never seen before ... B&G arrive in Groom's Bentley.

    Should have noticed the Bride's 2+ carat diamond engagement ring at the interview. My bad.

    Editor vs Photographer sounds like some of the propositions I've been getting the past few years. Cinematographer vs Producer sounds like what my brother's been dealing with.

    Too real for humor... !
