Has this ever happened to you:

I was trying to leave the party and a 60 something, drunk, lady had her hands in my jacket pockets and was starting to frisk me. If not for the host physically taking her fingers away from my belt, I wouldn't have gotten away.

I've had this happen a few times. Except they weren't drunk. Some people assume that since you're the magician your pockets are fair game. I don't get the logic.

60+ year old ladies often seem prone to such behavior, but yes, more than once I have had people presume they could examine my pockets and person at their pleasure when performing. Something about being a magician seems to give others a license to ignore normal social graces.

Can't say I have had a woman actually stick their hands in my pockets, but I would remain open to the idea...

Don't complain. Some of us have to pay for the privilege, you know.

"I had one situation while doing a private party in Manalapan, Fl. It was the Grandfathers 83rd birthday. I was forewarned by the butler to watch out for his wife as she was a lush. All aside I started the performance, when suddenly the wife began repeating "what's this S**T". Seeing how embarrassed the family was I stopped, reached into my briefcase, pulled out a deck of cards, and ditched the Ace of Spades into the case. Approaching the "lady" I asked her to help me with a trick. She looked a little "dumbfounded" as I handed her the deck and asked her to find the "big black Ace of Spades" for me. She took the deck and for the next 45 minutes and sat on the couch looking through the cards and never saying another word. The show went off without a hitch. As I was getting ready to leave the Grandfather came over, shook my hand, leaving a $100.00 tip in my palm, and said "I have never seen anyone handle her like that before. You saved me from a very embarrasing situation in front of my Grandchildren tonight" I can't guarantee this will work with all drunks, but it is something to store in the old memory bank.

Michael, what a great idea and one I've actually used myself, although I usually do a convincer to make them believe it's really in there, show it, shuffle, one handed top palm before handing it over, kinda thing. works wonders Smile

I actually had an older lady try to pull my shirt off at a bar. It was a simple scotch and soda routine and she wanted to know where the other coin was. The next thing I knew, my shirt was over my head. She kept saying, "it has to be in your pocket". Then I informed her that I didn't have any pockets in my shirt. We laughed all night over that one!
