Topic: I'm NOT a bum
Message: Posted by: Nash (Aug 29, 2009 12:16AM)
I'll spare you the whole story, but *** this is ****ing me off.

Tonight, I saw my regular customer, he was thrilled to see me and waved me over to his table. Before I start, some girl reached into her wallet for 2 dollars, gave them to me and tell me don't ever come back.
The rest of the table were laughing so I thought she was joking. So I playfully asked her name and let her know I would jot that down for future reference. But then I realize she wasn't a joking. She told me each person in the table is her family and if ever see them again, don't come near them.

I was ready to let her have it. But I kept my mouth shut, pulled out that meager 2 dollars, put it on the table and tell her to keep it. I let her know I don't take money if I haven't performed for you. I walked away and tried my hardest to not open my mouth.

Her boyfriend later came over to apologize for her. I told him "its ok, I'm not mad at you, its just that I'm not a bum. Don't throw money at me and tell me to go away"

I don't play that game son. If you gonna play that game, throw down a $50 then we'll talk. Just caz we are doing table side magic, it doesn't mean we are bums begging for money.

Later on her boyfriend went out for a smoke and she told him to stay near the window where she can see him. Some people just puzzles me.

Sounds like this girl is a nutjob. Plain and simple. She seems like the type to get off to making other people miserable. Her boyfriend will either not stick around or go through hell for the rest of his life.

I would have said, "keep the $2, you earned it through hard work standing on that corner." Just me... (not really, but that would be sweet)

I guess, "you couldn't pay me to stay away from you," would be more appropriate.

Easier said than done, but don't worry about it. It's obvious she embarrassed a lot of people that night. I'm sure it's not the first time she's done something similar to this, and I can assure you it won't be the last.

Besides, at least she told you to get away BEFORE you performed. :rotf:

Best.

Yes Bruce, too bad it was my mom. :)
And yes, dignity is important. If you don't respect yourself, no one will.

I hope this doesn't happen to any of you guys. And if it does, I hope you choose wisely between tip money and your respect.
Unless that money is you know, a $50 dollar bill :)

The real trick is definitely keeping your composure. I had a twenty something broad give me a similar response in almost the same situation without even the two bucks. I never wanted to punch someone in the mouth so bad in my life. To some people, magicians are either a bother or a threat. It's unfortunate, but something in their past must have made them this way.
Message: Posted by: echomagic (Aug 29, 2009 03:56PM)
Quite frankly, I consider something like that a challenge to change her/their mind about you and magic. I'll bet the reason that she was mad was because she thought you were ignoring them (?).

Whatever the reason, always take the high road. Everyone else in the restaurant will respect you for doing just that. Sounds like you handled it the best you could.
Message: Posted by: Sammy J. (Aug 29, 2009 06:54PM)
This may be too much, but I wonder what she would think if you took one of the dollars and changed it into a hundred, then said "Thanks very much!". I bet those with her would wish you would stick around!

A couple weeks ago I had a rude situation similar to that. I had just finished performing at a table, everyone was having a lot of fun in that particular group. Wrapped everything up, thanked them, and walked on my merry way, I was walking past a table, did not even make eye contact with anyone, had not even stopped to ask them, and the dad says loudly "NO THANK YOU!" It felt very personal, but I kept my composure. I just turned around and looked at him puzzled, and then kept walking. Some people are just rude down to the core.
Message: Posted by: ttorres (Aug 29, 2009 07:19PM)
I can remember a similar situation that happened to me years ago. I was working a restaurant that I had be at for a few years. When I approached a two topper with a man and a woman having drinks before dinner. The gentleman was very receptive and it was obvious that he wanted to see some magic. However, his companion was having no part of it. She appeared to be a very unhappy person , rude and very much in need to possess every second of her dates attention. So I just thanked them for having dinner with us tonight and hoped that they would return soon.

I moved on to a table right next to these and began my show. I wanted to make sure that the guest at this table had a really good time. So I put everything I had into my performance and at the end I made the two little girls each a very elaborate balloon flower. Once I finished I thanked them and moved on. Well, after seeing the balloon flowers the very rude lady actually called me over to her table and asked if she could have one of those flowers like I had made for the two little girls at the table next to hers. I very politely said “no”.

That may not have been the correct way to handle things but it was oh so satisfying.

Things I might have said when she handed me the 2 dollars: "Thank you, I'll check on your order personally, you were having the "testicle salad," right?" or "Just 2 bucks? The other night you gave me a twenty & said I was the best you ever had!"

Then,when the guy came over to apologize I might of said something like: "Don't worry about it, could be a lot worse; I could be dating her!" But then I never knew when to keep my big mouth shut!

Did you ever perform and then have a casual conversation with a customer and they say, That was great Magic, then ask "So what do you do for living?"

Well I,m a full time Magician

"No Really, What do you do for a living?"

Some people just cannot believe anyone can make a living performing Magic.

Young women tend are often too stupid to know a nice assertive guy, when they see one, so they tend to date jerks. Hence, the glass ceiling in society. I often date women in their twenties, so you can't cut them slack if you're going to enjoy your life.

I hope the guy had the guts to dump the woman! If he tolerated her for long, he's nothing but a doormat. If a woman that I was with ever did that, I'd let her have it! She'd be in for a swift, tongue lashing.

Sure, there are people in society who embarass those around them. We don't have to recognize any right, on their part, to exist that way.

Why are we even entertaining "insulting come backs"? The guy would have lost his job. This girl was obviously high strung, defensive, and maybe even a touch psychotic. Insulting her back would have been the worst thing in the world.

Did you get paid that night?

Do you still work at the restaurant?

If you can answer "yes" to both of these questions, then it's her problem, not yours.

Actually it's her boyfriend's problem...poor guy's gotta put up with her night and day

I don't know. I sometimes do insult humor and I get invited back. But, sometimes you have to say something in an offhanded way to keep one person from spoiling the atmosphere. I've certainly seen patrons who management would have ejected for ruining the dining experience for others.

True words but on the other hand, you never know what someone is going through. It might not have had anything to do with the magic or the magician.

When I was on the road our bus driver was the biggest a*hole I thought I had ever met so I decided to see if I could become friends with him and would ride shotgun late at night and talk. I discovered that he was in incredible pain all the time and had to work to support his family. He wasn't trying to be mean, it was the pain from a failed back operation. He had pain meds but they knocked him out so he couldn't drive and use. That changed my attitude about rude people and a*holes. You just never know what the other person is dealing with.

Of course, some folks are just a*holes plain and simple and theres nothing you can do about that but be glad you aren't one.

When I was the entertainment director of the Texas Renaissance Festival, I was often asked about handling hecklers. In my handbook, I had written the following:

"Get a copy of [i]2002 Insults[/i]. Read it from cover to cover, and find three or four insults you really like. Memorize them. When someone begins to heckle you or give you any kind of hard time, look him straight in the eye, smile, and [b]think[/b] one of them at him, as loud as you can.

"The audience will understand. They will admire your restraint. The heckler might understand. And you will have the pride of realizing that you could have made him feel like the idiot he actually is. If he continues, after you have given him two or three chances, once the rest of the audience is on your side, go in for a clean, swift, surgical strike. But do this only if the audience is on your side."

These forums serve the same purpose as thinking a heckle-stopper at the insulting party. It makes you feel good to know that you could have really graved the heckler, but you still have your job.

I like the turning the bill into a hundred idea.

Also: tear off the corner, give her the "Receipt" and leave your set-up lemon and a knife at the table. Walk away and wait for it...

Side note: the average 20-something female (especially attractive ones) gets hit on at least multiple times a day, over a thousand times a year. Hence, they develop the b**** mode to ward off us friendly dudes.

How about when you handed her the two dollars back you could have said:

"OK, have a nice dinner. I'll just leave this here (set the two dollars back on the table) for your ill-fated waitress as an extra tip since she doesn't have the ability to walk away. She's forced to take orders from you."

Message: Posted by: gdw (Sep 1, 2009 09:27PM)
Wow. Though I'm a bot confused. Was she at the same table as the regular you were walking over too?

If so, the obvious solution would be to turn to them and say, "I'm sorry, I'm here to see (insert regulars name, or just address them)"

Of course, if they were not the same table, well, you could just turn to someone else at the same table and re-introduce yourself to them, perhaps indicating in some way you are waiting to see how much they will pay you to not perform.

OR, say to her "I'm sorry, the restaurant already pays me to perform here, you do not need to pay me to not perform, but thank you for the offer." or some other remark that is polite, but also has some sort of under lying slap to her face that I am certain she would be oblivious to.

The whole "don't come near my family" thing is off putting. Perhaps she was religious and did not believe in magic for some "god" based reason. I would have been asking the rest of them if THEY would like to see you perform.

On the serious side, I'm thinking that the lady at the table is one of those who "must be" the center of attention & didn't want to "share the spotlight" with anyone else. Also, obviously a "control" freak. Insulting her would not only do damage to the resturant that employs you, it might make the others at the table defensive towards you. I really believe that you did the right thing in walking away & not allowing yourself to become the same type of person that she was. I don't do these type of gigs, but when she handed me the two dollars I still might have gushed: "Oh boy! Two dollars! Now I can buy that Lexus! Just kidding! You keep it! You folks have a wonderful evening! I know I am!" then walk away! NEVER let anybody take control away from you, but remain a class act. I have an advantage in the fact that I'm partially deaf so I can always turn a "deaf ear" to people who insult me.

that always gets a laugh.

I Think I would have said something like...

'Miss you don't have to pay me for something
I'd love to do...'

Flash a big smile, turn your back on her and...
walk away.
