The Saga Continues

So, all day I'm worried sick about the fallout from the Missing Sub at Thursday's Matinee saga. I actually cried a little over it. I mean, my reputation is what's on the line here, and that's just not cool. So I'm sweating it out all day, worried about it to the point where I really don't even want to go. But I do.

Long story short?

The sub LIED. Lied straight out and said it was my fault that there was no cellist. Ummmmm....no. I have documentation. Emails confirming that said sub would be in that seat on November 1st at 2:00 p.m. So my reputation is fine. The sub's? Not so much I don't think. AND I had a great show on Saturday night and the music director bought the first round of drinks (don't worry, all I had was pineapple juice) and showered his principles (no subs at that show) with love. So it turned out to be all good.

But I mean, can you believe that?

Yes, I believe it!

People just SUCK sometimes! :(

glad things worked out for you. :)

Wow. Glad you had proof to cover yourself (not that you SHOULD need it, but you never know). Hope that sub never gets called again... yeah, unfortunately some people cannot take responsibility for their own actions and try whatever means to blame their own bad behaviour on others. Congrats on the great show!!!

What a creep.
Whatever happened to him?

Pissy - I was somehow not entirely surprised when I heard that.

Maureen - I keep ALL emails pertaining to show coverage!

Kerry - Nothing. I'm more of a "let your actions" catch up with you kind. It'll get around quickly enough as to what happened. I'm not worried about that. I was more concerned with MY reputation and good name.
